TheShy is increasingly proving its worth with important contributions in Weibo Gaming’s “race to the top” journey.
Recently, Weibo Gaming continued to have another victory in the group stage of LPL Spring 2022 against FunPlus Phoenix, thereby increasing their difference to 5-1 and firmly in the top 4 region. In a day that the team SofM leader had a performance that made the audience “heartbroken”, then TheShy and other teammates spoke up at the right time to bring back valuable points for the former runner-up of World Championship 2020.
In particular, by leaving the strongest mark in the victory against FPX, TheShy has once again reaffirmed that he is absolutely a quality contract that WBG brought in in the last transfer window.
In the match against FPX, “Top God” used up to 3 champions with completely different styles: tank Malphite in game 1, top Lucian in game 2 and Kennen in game 3. Even when he had to admit defeat defeated in game 2, all 3 cards that TheShy used clearly showed his role in the WBG lineup.
Although it can no longer create as many highlights as in the past, in terms of tactics, the Korean player’s vast pool of champions has really given Weibo a wide variety of tactical options. As a result, the remaining members also have more diverse options. Of course, TheShy is still somewhat reluctant to play tanks, but if that’s the general request of the team, he always does his job well.
To be fair, SofM had a pretty bad run against FPX. The bad thing here is not compared to the general level, but just compared to his own performance at the peak. In game 3, being robbed of Baron’s charm and not being able to control the Dragon’s Soul almost caused WBG to receive an angry ending. However, the advantage of TheShy contract until now has only had the opportunity to show.
First, as mentioned, TheShy’s champion pool made WBG have more tactical options, and right after the failed test with a split-push big-handed lineup in game 2, they didn’t hesitate to switch to the lineup. teamfight in game 3. When he returned to his strong fighting style, with another formidable attack, WBG even accepted both Dragon Soul and Baron and still smashed FPX.
The second point is TheShy’s laning ability and pacing. It is a fact that except for the KDA index, in the standard statistics of a toplaner such as experience amount, gold difference, soldier difference… TheShy is not in the top 1, it is also the top 2 in the current LPL. That is, this guy is still showing his best side, in terms of expertise. With TheShy, WBG has an extremely stable upper wing, because he rarely loses lane, but even when he loses, with his bravery and experience, “Shy ca” also knows how to make the opponent unable to relax. wide advantage.
Contrary to the 2021 season, the current Weibo Gaming always has at least one lane that has an advantage over the opponent after 20 minutes, if TheShy is camped, then Huanfeng will have more space, and vice versa. This is completely different from the face of an “auto lose lane” team last season. Compared to the 2021 season, WBG has clearly always been better prepared for the mid and late game thanks to less losing lane.
The great contribution in this change of course cannot be ignored Huanfeng – The player with the most stable performance of Suning/Weibo Gaming in the last 2 years. But without TheShy in the lineup, it would be difficult for Huanfeng to get so much acting land. Currently, WBG has 3 extremely scary offensive spears: TheShy – SofM – Huanfeng, any of which is enough to make even the top LPL teams sweat. can contain them. And even when SofM has declined in form, “The wrong is still fixed by teammates”, and WBG also gradually reduces the situation of having to completely depend on an individual.
The current WBG is an extremely scary combination: They don’t have too many digital stars so they don’t have to fear any “me”, instead, their lineup is a harmonious collection of top superstars. with young talents who are increasingly asserting their talents. This combination makes any team shy, because although it is not the strongest team, on a beautiful day, when the factors of class, experience, youth and desire to win. is reconciled, the WBG will not be bored with any opponent.
All in all, the current WBG results are the clearest proof of how valuable the blockbuster contract they brought in has been. Even the season they finished second at Worlds, WBG/SN didn’t get off to a good start like this. Of course, the victories are still very hard and there are many weaknesses, but in a fiercely competitive environment like the LPL, it makes no sense for someone to demand that you always win with a perfect scenario. The most important is always the result, and let’s wait and see, whether TheShy can fly high with WBG to the end of the season.
