EDward Gaming win Worlds 2021
The most hyped series of the whole tournament took place tonight, in the Laugardalshöll indoor sporting arena, Iceland. Could EDward Gaming (EDG) win their first League of Legends Championship title or would Damwon Kia (DK) pull off a back-to-back Worlds victory?
Game 1 was expertly played by EDG while game 2 was a stomp in the opposite direction. Game 3 started off close, but when it mattered, DK won the team fight to close out the game. Game 4 belonged to EDG all the way - securing 4 Drakes and a Baron to swiftly close out the game.
It all boiled down to the final game of the series, game 5 which started off on even footing for both teams. Neither team were interested in overextending. At 23 minutes, EDG won a decisive teamfight which gave them access to their third drake of the game. However, 5 minutes later, DK snuck a Baron kill which seemed to be their ticket back into the game. Unfazed, EDG quickly nipped their momentum in the bud by out-teamfighting the LCK squad to win a 5 for 1 trade.
At 37 minutes, EDG scored a free kill on Canyon which secured them a Baron and a free march down the top lane. DK managed to fend off EDG after losing one Nexus Turret but it wasn't enough to bring them back into the game. EDG secured the Elder Dragon, which was enough for them to overpower DK and close out the game. EDG are your Worlds Champions!
And that concludes Worlds 2021, resetting the LPL/LCK cycle. Will EDG be able to stay on top in the coming season? Stay tuned to eGG Network for more news and updates on your favourite esports tournaments.
