As we all know, up to now, many teams with tickets to MSI 2022 have been present in Korea and started the bootcamp process. Among the preparations for the tournament, climbing the rank at the Korean server is a must for the players attending MSI 2022. Besides the skill training factor, the testing of some tactics or positions. New champions in solo queue are also a good way for players to prepare for the upcoming big tournament.
For example, Jankos and Caps of G2 Esports are practicing Rengar – Ivern for example
And at the moment, there are exactly 8 first international players to reach the Master rank on the Korean server. Among the first players to climb this Master, there are 2 members of Saigon Buffalo, Taki and Shogun. These two Vietnamese players currently possess an extremely respectable win rate after 4 days of “tryhard” of 68.1% (Taki) and 71.8% (Shogun), respectively.
SGB’s Taki and Shogun made it to the top 8 first players to climb to the rank of Korean Server Master
Despite such an impressive rank climbing record, Taki and Shogun are not the first to reach the Master rank on the Korean server. The person who did this surprisingly was a player from North America named Danny, the ADC of Evil Geniuses. Specifically, on May 1, Danny climbed to Master with a win rate of up to 74%.
Gunner Danny of Evil Geniuses is the first MSI 2022 player to successfully climb Master on the Korean server
Even Danny is the one with the highest rank among the players attending MSI 2022 in the past few days. This guy was only surpassed in ranking points by Evil Geniuses’ own reserve ADC named Kaori yesterday. It seems that Danny’s participation in EG’s scrims has made him not fully committed to rank up and keep the score really high.
Of course, with the account granted by Riot Games, the hidden elo of the players is extremely high, so the rank up speed is also faster than that of regular players. However, being able to reach the Master milestone after only a few days in Korea like the SGB or EG players mentioned above shows that these teams are not weak in terms of skills at all. Who knows, in the next few days, SGB players can climb the Korean Challenge together and encounter some of the best players here.
With the current rate of climbing, soon Taki or Shogun will face LCK players at single rank.
