After many times having to postpone the match schedule due to the stressful epidemic situation, on this afternoon – April 12, the semi-finals of the 2022 LPL Spring Split will officially start. This will be an extremely interesting match when the team that tops the group stage – V5 will face a Top Esports who are in extremely high form. Moreover, these are the two teams with the top mid laners in the league and the fight between Rookie and Knight will be decisive in the end.
Rookie is in extremely high form right now
And before the semi-finals of the LPL Spring 2022 take place, Rookie seems to be receiving the full support of the Korean “compatriots”. Specifically, in the recent streams of Ucal and Doinb, they both said that V5 is the team with the greatest chance of winning the LPL. In Ucal’s opinion, Rookie is currently an extremely good Ahri user. With this being the key champion of the current meta, V5 currently has a huge advantage.
As for Doinb, this guy also believes in the success of Rookie when he thinks that V5 must at least make it to the Finals. Besides, Doinb underestimated RNG, saying that this is a relatively erratic team and relies heavily on inspiration. “I will not make predictions about the champion team because it is too early now. Besides, once we get to the Finals, everything is 50/50” – Doinb shared.
Doinb thinks V5 should at least be in the LPL Finals
Indeed, in terms of performance, V5 is the team with the most impressive record when they completed the group stage with 14 wins and 2 losses. This remarkable achievement comes from the fact that Karsa and Rookie can play with the most comfortable mentality and show their superior qualities. Meanwhile, a player that not many people noticed, Rich, has improved tremendously and played so well in Top lane.

Even the inherent weakness of the teams that have just entered the playoffs is that the experience of playing in Bo5 matches does not exist in V5. Remember that Karsa and Rookie have both won the LPL, even MSI or Worlds, so they have more than enough experience to handle situations or encourage teamwork in intense matches. It can be said that this is a type of opponent that no one at the LPL wants to face at the moment.
Therefore, to assert strength, the best way is for V5 to have a win against Top Esports this afternoon.
