T1 even showed off a shocking pick called support Caitlyn and achieved an easy victory.
On the 26th, in the 2nd week and 2nd day of the 2023 League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) Spring Split held at Roll Park in Jongno-gu, Seoul, T1 continued its momentum by winning against Guangdong Freecs with a set score of 2:0.
T1, who took out a set after 525 days in the 1st set ban-pick process, savaged against the Guangdong Freecs from the beginning in line with the concept of the combination. T1, who swept 5 kills through two bottom dives, took the lead in the early stages by adding kills in the top-mid with Ryu “Keria” Min-seok’s amazing ultimate hit rate.
T1 took advantage of the initiative and showed a tight operation to acquire all of the Snap Shield gold before the 15th minute, and in the 20th minute immediately hunted Baron and landed a decisive blow. T1 showed off their firepower without giving Kwangdong Freecs a chance to counterattack, devastating the enemy camp in 25 minutes and winning the first set.
In the ensuing 2nd set ban-picking process, T1 picked Varus as the 1st pick and Caitlyn as the 3rd pick, showing the potential of supporter Caitlyn. In the end, Ryu Min-seok took Caitlyn, and supporter Caitlyn appeared in the LCK for the first time.
T1 put pressure on the bottom of Guangdong Freecs with Caitlyn’s superior range, and Lee Min-hyeong of ‘Kumayushi’ Barus scored a double kill, similar to the first set. Kwangdong Freecs was able to catch a breath with a double kill by Lee Tae-young from the top in the 7th minute, but had to lose the bottom 2nd turret before the 10th minute was reached.
The two teams exchanged kills fiercely, but in the 24th minute, T1, who won the mid teamfight, easily cleared the Nexus and finished the match with a 2:0 victory. 먹튀검증
