In the quarter-final match against Royal Never Give Up at the World Finals (Worlds) 2022, T1 won very convincingly. Not only completely destroying the representative of the LPL, Faker and his teammates also showed a great performance. With what has been performed in front of RNG, many League of Legends viewers are confident that T1 will be one of the brightest candidates for this year’s World Championship.
One of the most important factors for T1’s recent series of victories, not to be missed, is Zeus. Not only at Worlds 2022, from the beginning of the season until now, Zeus has shown a great performance even though this is the first season he has had an official position. It is because of the importance of Zeus that RNG has continuously exploited this player’s position, especially in the second game of the last quarterfinal series.
In game two, Zeus used Jayce to take on Breathe’s Fiora on the RNG side. Notably, Zeus had to constantly lie down when the opponent was stronger in general and was often supported by his teammates. However, in the late game, Zeus’ Jayce was still one of the most damaging names on both teams, even nearly twice as much as RNG’s Fiora.
In the post-match interview, Zeus shared that it was Burdol of DWG KIA (DK) who helped him train for the confrontation with Fiora. Zeus said: “Before the series (quarterfinals) started, I asked Burdol to help me practice. Burdol is my best friend and he played Fiora a lot. So I tested many champions to face. with Fiora. There are many champions that can play against Fiora besides Jayce but I have the most confidence in Jayce. So I decided to choose Jayce”.
Zeus also admitted that Breathe was really too good and gave him a lot of trouble during the match. Although Zeus was quite confident at first, he was later surprised by Breathe’s handling ability. “Luckily, my teammates played well and lasted the game long enough for me to reach the threshold of strength,” – Zeus shared.
In the upcoming match, Zeus and T1 will face JD Gaming and this is a much stronger opponent than RNG. Zeus himself will meet player 369 – an extremely outstanding name of the current LPL. It will be an extremely difficult match and most likely the confrontation between Zeus and 369 will decide the outcome of this match.
