BeryL’s DRX has just had a very important victory against DK in the LCK Summer 2022.
After the end of week 3 of the LCK Summer 2022, the strength of DRX was greatly questioned when they lost everything at that time. Of course, the loss of T1 is understandable, but losing to an LSB who is diving in the middle of the rankings is a difficult thing to accept for DRX fans.
Perhaps for this reason, DRX took a different approach to the game and played much better in the current fourth week. They even just defeated their direct competitor, DK, with a score of 2-1 yesterday (July 7). When interviewed after the game, DRX’s BeryL said that DK failed as the team tried to change their play style after they lost to T1 and Gen.G.
Q: What do you think is the deciding factor for the victory against DK?
DRX BeryL: Personally, I think DK is trying to change their playstyle after losing to T1 and Gen.G. We discovered this and made good preparations for the squad selection phase and got the edge. I can’t go into too much detail but DK seems to be having a hard time and partly failing in trying to change himself like that.
DRX used Swain too well in snuffing out DK’s quick toy idea
If you haven’t forgotten, BeryL is one of the first members of Damwon Gaming or later DK. Therefore, this player understands the gameplay of DK as well as his former teammates like Nuguri, Canyon or ShowMaker. So the fact that DK is trying to change his playstyle was read out by this guy very easily and gave DRX more information to defeat this opponent.
ShowMaker that playing as an LPL team is the best way to win Gen.G or T1
With DK, they’re probably trying to live up to ShowMaker’s earlier words about playing faster and more aggressively like an LPL team. However, with being so used to the control play, DK’s transition to this new style will be quite difficult. They will have to accept defeats like the loss against DRX recently to be able to change themselves completely.
As for DRX, they will have to face a much tougher opponent this weekend, Gen.G. The DRX players themselves also said that Gen.G is the strongest team in the LCK right now, so it is extremely difficult to win against them. Fortunately for DRX, they will be allowed to watch the match between T1 and Gen.G to know more about the strength and weakness of this opponent.
