This is the first time that the LPL team has joined forces in the League of Legends international competition, and it also means that the China team will win the MSI championship trophy for the third consecutive year.
JDG won the championship by beating BLG in the final of LPL Spring Tournament. As the top seed in the division, JDG directly entered the winning and losing group stage, and passed all the way. In the winner group final held on the 18th, it beat T1 3-2, taking the lead in getting the final tickets.
After breaking through from the finalists, BLG swept C9 from the LCS Division in North America, but then lost to JDG 0-3 and fell into the loser group. However, they quickly adjusted their state, and after defeating the European LEC team G2, they swept the top seed GEN in LCK division.
In the final of the loser group, facing T1, BLG was robbed of map resources by its opponents in the first game, and gradually fell into a difficult situation. However, in the key team battle, it seized the opponent’s mistakes and went to the next city first. Then they pursued the victory and won the match point 2-0 first.
Although T1 stubbornly pulled back a game, BLG focused on the opponent’s going down in the fourth game and established an advantage early. Although there was a mistake in the middle period, it still narrowly missed the game and locked the final seat.
After the game, Zhao Jiahao (ID: Elk), an excellent ADC player in this field, said that it was not easy for the team to go all the way to the final, and it was very happy to beat two Korean teams. Facing JDG in the final again, the team will play better than in the spring finals.
