It is a fact that we need to admit that in this 2022 season, DWG KIA has been reduced in strength compared to themselves in previous seasons. It should be remembered that in season 2021, DK had a time when ShowMaker had to play Gunner instead of Ghost but still won, leading the chart and then winning the LCK. However, in this season, the above dominance of DK was gone, instead there were unfortunate defeats and made many viewers doubt their strength.
Fortunately for DWG KIA last weekend, they regained some form and confidence with an important victory over KT Rolster. This victory helps DK widen the gap with KT itself and continue to raise hopes of chasing the leading group. Even after the match ended, ShowMaker gave an interview with confidence that he and his teammates could break T1’s winning circuit in the next match.
Q: The second leg has started, what are your and DK’s goals?
ShowMaker: Winning is of course what we aim for. In addition, the team also really wants to “revenge” the teams that defeated DK in the first leg. We may not finish the group stage in the top 1, but the goal is to get as high as possible to take advantage of the playoffs.
Q: You will meet Faker in that upcoming match, how do you feel?
ShowMaker: He’s really good at laning and his picks and bans are really good too.
Q: What is your goal in the upcoming match against T1?
ShowMaker: Right now, they haven’t lost a match yet but I’m confident that the team will prepare well to break T1’s winning circuit.
T1 is having 10 consecutive victories in the LCK Spring 2022
Indeed, when looking at T1’s play in this LCK Spring 2022, we feel that it is a perfect winning machine. In the laning phase, T1 did well or at least didn’t lose in all 3 of their positions. Whereas if they need star shine, Keria, Faker or any player can do it.
T1 is showing itself to be an extremely scary winning machine at the moment
On the other hand, DWG KIA in recent matches has clearly shown weakness in the two wings when Deokdam – Kellin still proved to be quite “young” when playing against hard-handed duos in the LCK. Meanwhile, Burdol’s Top lane position was too erratic, so the responsibility of carrying the team fell on the shoulders of Canyon and ShowMaker. It is not clear how a DK with so many problems will take down T1, perhaps we will have to wait until tomorrow – February 23 to get the correct answer.
The upcoming match between T1 and DK promises to be extremely tense and dramatic
