All members of EDG are in high form, making many people think of the journey to being crowned in the LPL Summer 2021.
EDward Gaming has completed the top 3 LPL Summer 2022 alongside Top Esports and JD Gaming. This result was obtained after EDG won a convincing 3-1 victory over LNG Esports in the Loss Bracket Semi-Final of the play-off round tonight (August 25).
The two teams met in a must-win situation after falling to the Loss Bracket. A few days earlier, EDG lost 2-3 to TES and LNG was beaten 0-3 by JDG. And the final result is the same as a year ago – when EDG also eliminated LNG in the Loss Bracket Semi-Final of the 2021 LPL Summer Play-off on August 26. “I feel very happy. Everything is going the same way as last year” – Flandre answered the MC’s question about the so-called “fate” between EDG and LNG.
LNG showed a mistake in the approach to the game by using the jungle Nidalee in game 1. Not only did not take advantage of the early game – a resolute condition to win with a lineup with Nidalee and Renekton – LNG and made too many early game mistakes. Tarzan and Doinb lost a lot of kills to JIejie and Scout. Just like that, EDG snowballed strongly from the mid lane and dominated after 32 minutes. Scout won MVP with KDA 10/2/6 thanks to Sylas – the champion who successfully created Doin and LNG in game 2.
Switching to a slower game, LNG recovered 1-1. Doinb and his teammates put their energy into the top lane to help Camille in the hands of Ale snowball. With a superior odd push, LNG knocked down the opponent’s Nexus Town Hall while EDG was still busy catching odd. The two teams struggled fiercely for about 20 minutes in game 3 until Ale’s Jax was repeatedly caught. 1/6/1 KDA and unable to generate the necessary pressure in teamfights, Ale makes himself a burden on LNG. In contrast, Flandre’s Gnar won the game MVP with KDA 6/1/11, contributing to 17/18 team kills.

In game 4, EDG caused LNG to collapse in the first moments. Starting from a 2v2 mid lane, Scout’s Taliyah scored a Doublekill with ease with the help of Poppy in Jiejie’s hand. All three lanes prevailed, EDG made a 10,000 gold difference in 19 minutes. Constantly pressuring, EDG knocked down all of LNG’s constructions, making Tarzan and Doinb’s initiating fights harmless. And just 26 minutes, EDG closed a spectacular 3-1 victory for the home audience.
Exactly one year ago, after excluding LNG, EDG overcame difficulties from the Loss Bracket to crush Team WE 3-0 and beat FunPlus Phoenix 3-1 to take the throne. That’s why fans are expecting EDG to “cosplay” themselves to have the seventh time lifting the Chinese League of Legends trophy.
EDG was present at the LPL Summer 2022 play-off play-off finals and waiting for the opponent to be the loser in the final match of the Winning Bracket between TES vs JDG tomorrow (August 26).
