The dark horse of Worlds 2022 – Rogue will have to face a ‘heavyweight’ opponent, JDG in the upcoming Quarterfinals.
Contrary to the poor performance of other representatives from the West, Rogue is having an excellent performance when winning the first leg and reaching the top 8 teams at Worlds 2022. also beat Top Esports or DRX in the Group Stage.
Entering the Play-off round of Worlds 2022, Rogue will face off against the 2022 LPL Summer Champion – JD Gaming. Many experts have assessed that Europe’s only hope will be difficult to find any victory against a strong candidate like JDG. So what does Rogue need to do to create miracles against JD Gaming?
JDG is Rogue’s hard core
If you regularly follow Rogue’s matches, you will easily realize that this representative from Europe is quite shy when facing teams with Junglers fighting in the direction of the team. In fact, in the Group Stage of Worlds 2022, RGE Malrang – the leader of the 2022 LEC Summer Champion, often uses Gladiator champions to open fights like Jarvan IV, Lee Sin or Vi. In contrast, JDG Kanavi loves good carry junglers like Nidalee or Graves and he is also the player with the highest average kills per game in his lane. Not only does he perform well as a jungler with a good carry, but Kanavi also does a good job of controlling the map when he has 2.24 vision points per minute while RGE Malrang only reaches 1.55.
JDG Kanavi is considered one of the best junglers at Worlds 2022
In the Top lane, there is a big difference between JDG 369 and RGE Odoamne. Odoamne only really plays well with Resist champions who open fights to create a premise for teammates, while 369 is a more versatile Top laner when he plays well even with carry Gladiator champions like Fiora, Jax or Aatrox. JDG 369 also had an excellent period when the difference in gold and minions at 15 minutes was second only to T1 Zeus. Meanwhile, RGE Odoamne usually plays more in a draw and at this rate, JDG 369 may strangle him in the upcoming Quarterfinals.
The difference in Support is also a point that Rogue needs to pay attention to when JDG Missing is a model of Support player who controls very well and constantly creates mutations in combat. Meanwhile, RGE Trymbi is being heavily criticized by the community for its poor performance in the second leg of the last group stage. House Support JDG consistently outperforms Trymbi in many important stats like vision per minute or kill engagement percentage per game. Although both have used 6 champions after 7 games, viewers clearly see that the effectiveness that Missing brings with her pick is completely superior to Rogue’s Support. In the current meta, when Support is the key to unlocking the power of his ADC to be able to compete in the Dragon cave area or late game fights, Missing will be the one to make JDG Hope confidently discharge damage and bring the reigning LPL Summer 2022 Champion to victory
Can Rogue do miracles?
There is no denying the talent of the members in Rogue at this Worlds 2022. They have a very different Larssen than they did against JDG Yagao in 2020. Being in the top 5 KDAs in the mid lane after the group stage ended, Rogue’s mid lane is leading Yagao by quite a few important parameters. important. In addition, JDG Yagao has just tested positive for COVID-19 and this will more or less affect his performance. Therefore, Rogue can focus on exploiting JDG’s Mid lane to optimize Larssen’s advantage.
Another highlight to watch out for is Rogue’s Korean jungler Malrang, who “outed” all of his European colleagues in 2022. His smart play and spirit of sacrifice, serving the whole team even to the point of quitting farm are the premise for Odoamne or Comp to play more explosively. In the upcoming Quarterfinals, JDG Kanavi – a Jungler also from the land of Kim Chi will be a heavy dose of reagent that Malrang needs to unleash 200% of his power in the upcoming Quarterfinals.
The playstyle of the European representatives in BO5 matches is also extremely unpredictable, we can remember G2’s 3-1 win over SKT at Worlds 2019. The reigning LEC Summer 2022 Champion may still be in the process. hide cards that they can use against JDG. Rogue ADC’s Comp previously pointed out that the team frequently makes mistakes in the Midgame that they need to fix quickly before this tense Quarterfinals.
Having defeated both the mighty DRX or the mighty Top Esports, Rogue will not be easily overwhelmed by another representative from the LPL. Therefore, Rogue can completely improve in the upcoming Quarterfinals and fully capable of doing miracles against JD Gaming.
