Turkey And CBLOL Go Head To Head
Day two of MSI 2022 was the first of two matchups where CBLOL, the Brazilian League of Legends league, will go against the TCL, the League of Legends league from Turkey. These two leagues have a very long history, with teams from each league respectively taking the other out at MSI or at the World Championships.
After a monologue detailing the history of the two leagues at international events from hosts Yinsu “Yinsu” Collins and Trevor “Quickshot” Henry, RED Canids and fastPay Wildcats took to the stage. Initially, the game didn’t seem like it would deliver on the hype. The game had a slow start, with both teams not delivering on the hype that preceded the game.
Halfway through the game, it all changed, with both teams scrapping at every possible moment. The gold graph, which told the amount of money teams had in relation to each other, looked like a rollercoaster once the game reached the fourteen-minute mark.
After the final team fight, the team from the TCL, the fastPay Wildcats finished the game, and in turn, took the first game in the first of many international battles this year between the two leagues.
