DAMWON Gaming took down G2 Esports in a dominant fashion in the 2020 World Championship semifinals today, getting revenge for being eliminated during the last League of Legends World Championship by the European behemoth.
Going into this rematch the odds were against G2 due to how dominant DWG were throughout the entire year. They had one of the most dominant splits in the LCK, completely crushing the opposition. The solo laners of Jang “Nuguri” Ha-gwon and Heo “ShowMaker” Su popped off this series, outmaneuvering Wunder and Caps from G2’s side in every game.
The series began with a surprise flex Lucian into the bottom lane by G2. This tactic didn’t pay off, however, with DWG looking prepared for such a tactic. DWG’s Kim “Canyon” Geon-bu took over the game early on from the jungle, snowballing his teammates and closing out the first game of the series without any issues.
After the devastating loss in the first game, G2 picked the red side which seemed like a huge mistake for the second match. DWG were on a winstreak on the blue side and were seen as the favorites to win it.
