Maybe the Gen.G Esports players will win the title they’ve been waiting for so long.
When the LCK Summer 2022 begins, almost the League of Legends community believes that T1 will once again dominate this tournament. Simply, Faker and his teammates had a perfect Spring 2022. And since Gen.G Esports (Gen.G) and DWG KIA (DK) at that time had not proven that they could really challenge T1, Faker and his teammates were rated higher than the rest. of the LCK is completely understandable.
Gen.G Esports is aiming for the title in the LCK Summer 2022
However, so far, Gen.G is the team that has performed much better than T1. And it is Chovy and his new teammates who are the No. 1 candidate for the 2022 Summer LCK Championship. But is this Summer really Gen.G’s season?
Still depends a lot on individual shines
Gen.G is an all-star collective, that’s undeniable. However, putting together an all-star team is never easy. Moreover, although Chovy, Lehends and Doran played together, that was a long time ago. Therefore, in many matches of Spring 2022, Gen.G has shown a certain fragmentation. That has somewhat improved in Summer 2022 and that is a positive sign.
Gen.G is still relying heavily on Ruler’s shine
However, Gen.G also many times depends on the shine of the stars, typically ADC Ruler and Jungler Peanut. These are probably two names that have always been in perfect form throughout Summer 2022. But the reality is, if Gen.G really wants to be able to compete for the title, they need to fight like they beat T1 , DK rather than becoming a “one-man team”.
Chovy needs to prove herself
Among the two names that are considered the brightest for the position of “Faker’s successor”, Chovy is a player who until now is still ungrateful with titles. Unlike ShowMaker, Chovy’s career is much more difficult even though he is really a rare talent in the LCK and in the League of Legends in general, since the time of Faker.
Chovy needs to prove he can really be a mainstay and a champion
However, what makes Chovy still ungrateful with titles, is partly from himself. Chovy has always been up and down in important matches, of which the 2022 LCK Spring Finals is the closest example. In that match, 1 Faker who was old and in poor shape was even more brilliant than the former Griffins star.
Chovy needs to prove more influential, suitable for the team than becoming a minion machine in his matches. Only in this way can Gen.G really win, not only at the 2022 Summer LCK but also the upcoming World Championship.
Courage in important matches
Up to the present time, Gen.G is having a record of 35 wins – 5 losses, reaching a rate of 88% – an extremely impressive number and a sign that they are indeed a capable team. achieve the championship. However, everything will be meaningless if Gen.G fails in the knockout rounds or at the 2022 LCK Summer Finals.
Chovy and his teammates need to show the bravery of the champion at the right time
And what Gen.G needs, is the bravery of the champion. In the current lineup, only Ruler and Peanut are the two factors that have ever won the title. And these are also the two most stable players in Gen.G. However, Ruler and Peanut could not carry the team forever. The Dorans, Lehends and especially Chovy themselves must prove they really deserve the championship despite spending their entire careers searching.
In the knockout stage, there will be no more testing and every match will be a final. Gen.G will definitely have to be careful. Because, the extremely wasteful defeats like in the match against KT Rolster on the afternoon of August 13 (Vietnam time) can completely make Chovy and his teammates embrace another season.
