MSI Showdown: SKT Juggernaut v The Korean Killers
It is now the business end of MSI with the remaining teams fighting tooth and nail for the coveted MSI title. Unfortunately, TSM and Gigabyte Marines were unable to qualify for the knockout stage despite playing in some of the best games of League of Legends so far in the tournament.
As fate would have it, the first semi-final was the highly anticipated showdown between the seemingly unstoppable SKT juggernaut and the “supposed” kryptonite of the famed SKT machine over the last few seasons, the Flash Wolves from the LMS. Both sides had come into this match with much to prove; SKT with their tag of perceived vulnerability against the Taiwanese powerhouse and Flash Wolves with their inconsistent form in this tournament
However, it was the unstoppable Korean juggernaut that emerged as the victors in a clinical series - a clean sweep of 3-0. Despite promising signs in the early game from the Flash Wolves, SKT was able to rely on their strengths of well-coordinated team fighting and macro-play to guide them to victory. With this performance, SKT advanced into the MSI finals where they will face either G2 Esports from the EULCS or Team WE from the LPL. Commiserations go to the Flash Wolves who were simply bested by an outfit which was better on the day.
Stay tuned for the next Esports update with UNSW LolSoc.
