Where can SofM and his WBG teammates rely to hope to surprise the “Royal Legion” RNG in the upcoming confrontation.
In just a few hours, one of the “crucial” matches of the LPL Summer 2022 will take place: the match between Royal Never Give Up and Weibo Gaming. This is considered an important match for both teams. One side is the champion of the LPL Spring 2022 and the champion of MSI 2022. The other side is the team that is considered the most unpredictable in the village of League of Legends – WBG. When serious, WBG can knock out the 2022 World Championship champion EDG, but when erratic, they can lose to an “underdog” team like Rare Atom.
Although currently, WBG is also unstable, but not so that SofM and his teammates have no basis to surprise RNG. Because, if WBG is unstable, in the match against FunPlus Phoenix, RNG also revealed some of its problems.
The subjectivity of the champion
RNG has overcome very difficult journeys to take the throne at LPL Spring 2022 and then MSI 2022. Although playing at home, the speculations and attacks of the community for RNG are many. However, they won a well-deserved championship.
And so, there was a somewhat subjective mentality in the RNG players against FPX. And it was this subjectivity that made the “Royal Legion” pay the price with game 1 of that match.
Less training time
One reality that the teams participating in MSI 2022 have just returned to face is that the time to practice and adapt to the new meta will be less than the teams not participating in this tournament. RNG itself is a typical example. Remember, in the 2021 season, after returning from MSI, “Royal Legion” had a very bad series of matches. Even many people were early to think that RNG would hardly make it to the playoffs of that Spring.
And currently, RNG is still having less time to practice with the new meta than WBG. While the RNG players battled at MSI 2022, WBG started practicing and climbing ranks very early. Of course, if the WBG is still showing ups and downs, the more practice time won’t make any sense. But this is definitely an advantage that the WBG can rely on.
Breathe still needs more time
The truth is, Breathe can be a very important piece, and the element that RNG needs more than Bin. However, that will be up to the future to answer. In the last match against FPX, RNG’s Top Lane did not stand out from his teammates, especially GALA. In game 1, even Breathe was the biggest weakness that prevented RNG from beating FPX.
And this may be a weakness for WBG to exploit. Against Breathe in Top Lane is TheShy. If in a serious competition day with the highest performance, “Shy ca” can completely make RNG “hate” by a weakness called Breathe.
