Gen.G clinched the No. 1 overall seed in the 2022 LCK Summer Split playoffs earlier today, surprising few fans. What was stunning about their top seed-clinching 2-0 victory over Fredit BRION earlier today, though, was that both games in the League of Legends series were played in the exact same amount of time: 33 minutes and 59 seconds.
The first game of today’s series saw Gen.G jump out to a respectable lead in the mid-game following a two-for-zero teamfight in the northeast quadrant of the jungle. From there, Gen.G gained continuous control of the map until a later teamfight allowed them to push into the BRION base, earning the final hit on the Nexus at the 33:54 mark. Because league‘s official game time statistic accounts for the five seconds that it takes for the Nexus to explode, the first game of the series officially ended at 33:59.
