The audience watching the 2022 VCS Summer tournament could not accept Coated’s style of play on GE’s side.
The opening day of Week 5 of the VCS Summer 2022 group stage ended without any surprises. GAM Esports and SBTC Esports, respectively, defeated rivals that were much lower than them, AS Esports and Genius Esports. However, the match between the second team of the SE group and the penultimate GE group was “dissected” by many people with the extremely suspicious performance of a player. It was Coated, the veteran top laner playing for GE, with a series of moves that surprised everyone throughout the two games.
“What kind of thing?! This is obviously a very entertaining match with what Coated has shown,” – BLV Duc Manh said game 1 between SE vs GE. “Coated has no reverse gear and has to fight no matter what!” – BLV Hoang Luan also shares the same opinion with his colleagues. Accordingly, Coated’s Fiora was solo killed by Gwen in the hands of nPer on the SE side three times. Including two situations where nPer lost from 2-3 levels, but Coated still did not hesitate to challenge himself and his fans. Coated closed Game 1 skeptically with KDA 2/9/2.
Game 2 had the same scenario when Coated was solo killed by nPer and lost his First Victory in the third minute. At the ninth minute, that scenario repeated with an easy kill going to SE top. At the 13th minute, from the situation of Hoa Duong Trieu Trieu yuan of nPer, Coated solo killed the enemy for the first time in the same lane.
The tactical imprint left by both teams is not too much because they only work hard to win and lose to take advantage. Fully exploiting the mistakes of Coated, Blazes and teammates, SE easily overwhelmed both games after 28 and 31 minutes to win points. “This win gives us confidence after a series of losses last week,” said Celebrity, SE AD carry who won two MVPs in the latest Bo3 series, in a post-match interview. “We trained hard and confidently won against GE.”
Not only losing prestige, both GE and Coated are being questioned about the professionalism in the way they play in both games against SE.
Celebrity – who scored two Quadrakills and one unofficial Pentakill against GE – said that he and his teammates constantly remind nPer that a top 1 solo kill is not as important as a team victory. And perhaps even though they don’t want to, nPer still has to “continue” Coated as the two players leading the solo kill rankings at VCS Summer 2022. Immediately after the match, many people criticized Coated that this guy was playing. intentionally doing bad things in professional League of Legends matches. There’s no evidence yet that Coated performs negatively, but one thing’s for sure, the GE player has the worst KDA of all lanes on VCS, 1.97.
Update VCS Summer 2022 rankings
According to statistics, Coated has an average of 4.09 times to lie down per game – the highest rate compared to all other top laners in the number one tournament in Vietnam. Success is nowhere to be seen because this guy only has one MVP and GE is suffering the consequences with the penultimate position in the rankings. GE – ½ of the rookies who have just won promotion – has not received sympathy from the fans after eliminating almost the entire main lineup (helping them get tickets to VCS) earlier this summer. Not to mention GE is also financially supported by the “tycoon” of Vietnam LoL.
SE (6-3) will meet the bottom team of ASE group (2-7) at 5:00 p.m. on August 7. Celebrity said that he and his teammates will do their best to not disappoint fans anymore. Wait and see!
