Fredit BRION made history when he qualified for the LCK Spring playoffs for the first time in the league’s history. To secure their place, they defeated one of the league’s strongest teams, DWG KIA, by a score of 2-0 today in Korea. With Fredit BRION confirming their ticket to the 2022 LCK Spring Playoffs, the LCK still has one playoff spot available.
Fredit BRION has established a reputation as the tournament’s dark horse, taking down big names and pulling surprises out of their hat. They took down DWG KIA twice last year, and the trend is continuing this year.
DWG KIA prepared for Lava’s Ahri pick by giving Showmaker Veigar first blood on the opposing mid laner. Morgan scored a solo kill on Burdol’s Akali counter, forcing Fredit BRION to enter the fray. Though DWG KIA captured the first dragon, they were unable to contest the second and were hesitant to fight their adversary.
In the middle of the game, Fredit BRION began to win the majority of the fights. One particular teamfight near Baron ensured Fredit BRION had a significant advantage over DWG KIA, despite the fact that Fredit BRION could crack the inhibitor open but couldn’t end the game. Aphelios, Hena’s Aphelios, scaled well in the late game and was decisive in teamfights. DWG KIA, on the other hand, was fierce in defense and maintained consistent, objective control, but they continued to lose teamfights. Fredit BRION got the match’s second Baron, swept the opponent, and marched through the mid lane to end the first game of the series.
The second match was dominated by Fredit BRION, and the tempo was slower than the first. However, Hena’s Aphelios remained undefeated in this match and played an important role in fights to give Fredit BRION the advantage. UmTi captured all of the dragons, earning the Mountain Soul in the game, and the team continued to recruit DWG KIA players to extend their lead in the game. DWG KIA was unable to respond to the enemy’s aggression, and Fredit BRION emerged victorious in the exchanges. DWG KIA lost another teamfight near the Baron in the middle game, giving Fredit BRION the green light to march down the middle lane and finish the series in style.
