Faker Heads Home
Despite making it back to the semifinals for the first time since 2018, Faker is heading home. The series between T1 and Damwon Kia was very close, going to five games.
Faker and his young team didn’t play the slow and controlling game that we had seen of the past, instead of going for a fast-paced and aggressive playstyle that was either boom or bust against the slow and controlling playstyle of Damwon, allowing them to hand the first two losses of the tournament to the defending champion.
Khan Goes To Finals
Before the tournament started, it was known that the Damwon Kia top laner Khan was going to retire after the tournament. It was his goal to win his first championship.
He is now in the 2021 League of Legends World Championship Finals with the win over T1. Coming to Damwon after the previous top laner, Nuguri, left the team for FunPlus Phoenix, his goal is in reach.
Becoming a fan favorite in the LCK with his bubbly attitude, fans are hopeful for his dream to come true. The only team that will stand in his way will either be Gen.G or Edward gaming depending on the outcome of the second semifinal series.
The second series in the 2021 League of Legends World Championship Semifinals has Gen.G go against Edward Gaming at 5 AM PST/ 8 AM EST/ 1 PM BST. Will Scout be able to make it to his first finals at the World Championship? You can find out by watching at LoLEsports.com.
