Sofm’s WBG temporarily rose to the top 2 in the group stage of the LPL Spring 2022 thanks to the victory of V5, “old friend” Karsa did not disappoint the fans.
After an impressive victory over EDward Gaming, Weibo Gaming got themselves more valuable points to rise to the top 3 in the group stage. With this performance, fans expect Sofm and his teammates to climb to a higher position, or even reach the top of the LPL Spring 2022.
And that came faster than expected thanks to Victory Five’s “destructive” victory over Royal Never Give Up. V5 won to equalize the score with WBG, currently both have a score of 6 – 1 and are ranked in the top 2, 3 respectively.
It can be seen that whenever Sofm “flys high” in good form, his old friend and familiar rival Karsa is no less competitive. In the recent battle between V5 and RNG, Karsa was a very important factor to bring victory to the team. From the very beginning of the game Karsa had an impact on the singles zone, similar to how Sofm used to.
More specifically, even the jungle champion in Karsa’s 2 games is similar to Sofm’s previous victory, Leesin and Hacerim. It can be seen that the gameplay of Karsa and Sofm is very similar, and both are gradually regaining their form as in the summer of 2020.
In addition, TheShy’s former teammate, Rookie, who is playing in V5 is also doing very well. Rookie had an impressive performance with Oriana in game 1, many times Rookie solo-killed “old man” Xiaohu.
The fact that TheShy and Rookie separated after a long time together at Invictus Gaming is something that makes fans extremely sad. However, both are very successful with their new teams. It seems like it’s been a long time since the two former Worlds kings had such a good record in the LPL group stage.
WBG won the first leg against V5, so fans are looking forward to the rematch between the two teams in the second leg. The end of the group stage is always exciting because this is when the competition is at its highest. Maybe WBG and V5 will have to face each other in a war for the throne.
The rematch between Sofm and Karsa, or TheShy and Rookie promises to be extremely interesting. Information about LPL will be updated, please stay tuned for more.
