The revelations from KDF further make the audience believe that T1 actually submitted to WBG before the match started.
As you know, in the match against Weibo Gaming, T1 brought many interesting options, such as Yone and Gwen Top for Zeus or Faker using Ahri for the first time at Worlds 2023. All of these options, In general, they are all T1’s tactics and they all show very good effectiveness in the match. According to many assessments, T1 even had the easiest final match in their history every time they attended Worlds.
T1 had an easy victory against WBG
However, according to the players of Kwangdong Freecs – the team that was very active in scrim with T1, T1’s easy victory came from the ban and selection stage. Specifically, Andil (KDF Support) shared some surprising information about T1’s picks and bans while training with them. Accordingly, Coach Tom asked KDF to immediately ban Jarvan IV, Azir and Sylas from scrims together. Everyone understands that these are the 3 champions that both fit the meta and are T1-handed. Among them, Azir and Sylas can be considered Faker’s two “sure-win” champions.
According to KDF, it was T1 who asked them to ban access to Azir, Sylas and Jarvan IV during the scrim.
But what’s even scarier is that in the first game of the final, WBG banned Jarvan IV in the exact order –
And indeed, WBG also banned the above 3 generals right in game 1 of the match against T1 in the 2023 World Championship final.
KDF’s revelations make fans even more surprised about the level of T1 coaching staff as well as the team’s thorough meta research. Because, when they are chosen on the Red side, and are banned from losing a lot of good-handed or meta champions, not many teams can rise up. Perhaps, always thinking ahead with many options is also the reason why T1 is the team with the highest win rate on the Red side at this World Championship.
T1 coaching staff has shown that they are really sensitive to the meta and “reading” their opponents
In addition, this revelation makes T1 fans even more confident that the home team has the opportunity to carry out the “Golden Road” in 2024. Because, T1 has kept the entire squad that won the 2023 World Championship together and added Add coach KkOma. The best tactical minds can be said to be gathering at T1 and surely the team will want to continue their great milestones even further.http://kenhtingame.com/soi-lai-chung-ket -cktg-2023-t1-da-di-country-in-bung-wbg-ly-due-to-main-kdf-tiet-lo-178231129011813387.chn
