Although there are still a few matches left, the group stage of the LCK Summer 2022 has just ended, but the rankings of the teams are almost determined.
Before the match day yesterday, August 11, the top three teams of the LCK Summer 2022 group were determined to be Gen.G Esports, T1 and Liiv SANDBOX, respectively. Therefore, the match between KT Rolster and DRX is considered quite important when deciding the position of the remaining teams in the top 6.
Thought this would be a thrilling match between two teams with the same 9 wins at the moment, but the development proved to be quite one-sided. In both games, KT showed overwhelming power against DRX and didn’t give the opponent any chance. Although this is an LCK with a slow pace, KT still won before 25 minutes, thereby making DRX regretfully accept 6th place overall.
With this result, Deft and his teammates will face LSB, the third place team in the group stage. Meanwhile KT will meet DWG KIA in the remaining pair of the first playoffs. In the final round, KT and DK will compete for 4th place to gain the advantage of the bGen.en option in the upcoming tense BO5 matchup.
Gen.G and T1 have the advantage of waiting in the Semi-Final Round, and can predict which part of the opponent they are likely to meet. With the leading advantage, Gen.G has the right to choose the opponent between the two winning teams in the upcoming matches. They can absolutely choose “softer” bets and give T1 tough opponents.

Any team will be a great challenge for Faker and his teammates in the context that T1 is not in good form. The first round of the LCK Summer 2022 playoffs will take place on August 17 and 18. Meanwhile, Gen.G and T1 will compete in the Semifinals on August 20 and 21, respectively.
