In the match on the afternoon of February 15 (Vietnam time), Weibo Gaming will face EDward Gaming. This is also one of the two main matches of the 5th week of LPL Spring 2022 (the other is Royal Never Give Up against LNG Esports on Sunday, February 20). Both teams WBG and EDG are having a good record so far and meeting WBG will also be EDG’s first high-quality test in this year’s LPL Spring.
The Anticipated Great Battle: EDG – WBG
In terms of form and performance, EDG is better than WBG when the 2021 World Championship champion has been unbeaten since the beginning of the season. And in their matches, EDG also has convincing victories. More specifically, they only lost 1 game against Ultra Prime, the rest, were all 2-0 wins. Not to mention, EDG also had a period without a full roster. Top lane Flandre didn’t play for many reasons and EDG had to use sub Xiaoxiang but still got good results.
EDG is a very powerful team
As for WBG, until now, most viewers consider this to be the most unpredictable team in LPL Spring 2022. They can lose any game but then can crush that same opponent in next game. The two matches before Victory Five and FunPlus Phoenix are the best proof of this. The WBG players are also really unpredictable when from TheShy, SofM to Angel, ON can also “go up” but then disappear in the next game. The only person “10 matches like 1” of WBG is probably only “Teacher Huan” Huanfeng.

But in the match against EDG on the afternoon of February 15, SofM is the name that gets the most attention and LPL fans think that it is he, not TheShy or Huanfeng, who will decide the match. SofM has always been an extremely quality jungler in the LPL. In a day of high form, SofM can destroy any opponent. Not to mention, next to him now is TheShy – a player with a more diverse playstyle, who is not dependent on SofM and will help “Vietnamese Forest God” play more freely.
TheShy’s appearance helps SofM play more comfortably
But one thing must also be said: SofM’s current performance is not 100% in every match. Not to mention, sometimes too controlling and aggressive play can cause him and his teammates to be bounced back by the opponent. EDG is a very strong team in the LPL in particular and the world of LoL in general at the moment and certainly, once they make a mistake, the punishment is definitely heavier than the V5 or FPX.
But SofM itself is not 100% in every match
But as the most seasoned player on the team, and the one who regulates the early and mid-game gameplay, SofM’s role is extremely important. Not only did he have to lock Jiejie, but he also had to support the other lanes. One thing can be assured that TheShy is also not an easy name for Flandre. But the remaining detonators like Scout or Viper can completely surprise, especially in the current bottom wing play.
The confrontation between WBG – EDG is not only a great battle between the two teams with the best achievements in the LPL, but also has the meaning of affirming the strength of both sides. SofM himself also admits that EDG currently has no weaknesses, but he also affirmed that WBG will learn the opponent carefully and therefore, the audience can completely look forward to a really eye-catching match between the two giants of the team. this LoL village in China.
