(Country) – Despite showing brilliant performance in the summer, Gen.G still had to stop at the 2022 World Championship semifinals.
Thus, the number 1 seed of the Korean region has officially stopped at the World Finals (World Championship) 2022. Gen.G League of Legends team lost to Dragon-X with a score of 1- 3, sadly watching your team enter the final match. This is an unexpected result because Gen.G is highly appreciated by experts. So what’s going on with the reigning LCK champion at this year’s Worlds?
A sad season for Gen.G . members
The drop in form comes from 5 members
The members of Gen.G are not in good form in this year’s tournament. Top laner Doran is still considered the weakest link in the team. During the entire Worlds 2022 tournament, he could not express himself, rarely shining in important matches. As for Peanut, after reaching peak form in the summer, this player lacks concentration, rarely affects the game as much as before, often caught by the opponent in sensitive situations. .
At Worlds 2022, Chovy is expected to become a new LoL monument when Faker retires. Gen.G fans are also looking forward to the brilliant performance of the young talent. Although his teammates prioritized giving resources to Chovy, the mid laner did not really stand out in this year’s tournament.
Chovy received a lot of favor from his teammates but did not leave a prominent mark
Gen.G’s bot lane duo showed the most impact at Worlds 2022. After an erratic period in the first leg of the group stage, Ruler began to find the inherent feeling to do well as an AD carry. Lehends’ performance is closely linked to Ruler’s, he completed the task perfectly. In summary, all 5 members of Gen.G performed below expectations in this year’s tournament.
Made a lot of personal handling errors
In the journey at Worlds 2022 this year, the best time for Gen.G team to play is the second leg of the group stage. Entering the knockout round, Gen.G’s error handling rate increased dramatically. In the match against Damwon KIA, Gen.G continuously moved and coordinated out of rhythm, so they lost in game 3 and game 4. Entering game 5, the Korean No. 1 seed had to wait for the new Ruler to shine. get a ticket to the semi-finals. Even Gen.G almost let the opponent come back successfully after Canyon’s excellent wing in the decisive game.
Ruler shines when Chovy gets on the board very early
Entering the semi-finals, Gen.G’s error handling situations began to appear clearly. Doran’s Ornn ult lacks effectiveness, while his standing position is problematic in teamfights. Entering game 3, the top laner often made mistakes and went to the board to count up to 5 times. As for Peanut, he played distractedly, often being caught alone, overshadowing Pyosik from Dragon-X.
As for Chovy, the most anticipated player in the tournament played a forgettable Bo5. He often made mistakes in important situations such as: Azir trying to linger to get minion stats and was defeated by the opponent in game 3, Ryze hastily flashed in game 4. The situations look simple but but great influence on the situation of a professional League of Legends match. Even Zeka’s Galio has better minion stats than Chovy’s Ryze.
The situation where Chovy tried to stay and had to get a bitter ending
Gen.G’s bot lane duo still showed themselves at Worlds 2022. After the first 3 games did not perform well, Ruler gradually found his form and carried Gen.G on his shoulders. If Ruler’s excellent handling situation in the Quarterfinals does not happen, it is unlikely that the LCK No. 1 seed will enter this Semi-Final match. However, both Ruler and Lehends have yet to show 100% of their inherent form like last summer.
Lack of bravery to compete
In intense matches, the element of bravery is extremely important. At critical moments, the leader will keep the rhythm for the whole team, stabilize the mentality and lead the players in a separate path. Therefore, the defending LCK champion lacks a captain who can shoulder a great responsibility, especially in a situation where his team is leading.
Gen.G still doesn’t have a real leader like Faker or Rookie
If we look closely, we will realize that Gen.G is psychologically weak in matches that decide the fate of the whole team. They have a heavy mentality, lack of cohesion and pressure on their hands. Therefore, they often deal with situational errors, demoralize and cannot find a way to successfully reverse the tide. In the match against Damwon KIA, Gen.G’s weaknesses were just beginning to rekindle. Going to the semifinals, the number 1 seed Korea revealed all its shortcomings and lost to the 4th seed Dragon-X. Of course, the world LoL community can’t deny that Dragon-X played so well at this year’s tournament.
