Revolving around the journey to the championship of DRX and Deft, there are many interesting stories shared by insiders.
It can be said that the journey of DRX in general and Deft in particular during the last Worlds is a fairy tale. Going up from the regional qualifiers, overcoming many opponents that are considered stronger like RNG (the warm-up round), then climbing the tower slowly with EDG, GenG, and finally defeating T1 to take the throne. The most noble that a League of Legends team can have.
Around this journey, there are many interesting stories shared by insiders. As in the recent stream, Deft revealed an interesting detail regarding their recent championship competitor – specifically T1 player Keria.
Accordingly, having played together in the DRX 2020 shirt, Deft and Keria still maintain an extremely close friendship throughout Worlds. There was even a time when Keria was lying on the floor in the Deft room, and on this occasion the two shared a few results, banning picks and bans in scrims of the two teams T1 and DRX for each other.
The simple reason for this is that the two did not expect to meet in the Finals. Indeed, the situation of the two teams at that time was not the same, while T1 was still the biggest champion candidate, DRX was only evaluated as the dark horse of the tournament. Many fans and experts even said that reaching the Quarterfinals could be DRX’s highest achievement.
However, the rest is still history, it can be said that knowing some details about each other’s practice fighting style made the final match extremely dramatic. It wasn’t until game 5 that we found the new king of this year’s LoL village.
