T1 took down G2 Esports with an impressive 3-0 showing today. The team punched their ticket to the League of Legends MSI 2022 grand finals against Royal Never Give Up, which will take place tomorrow in Busan, South Korea.
T1 had a phenomenal 2022 season after winning the LCK Spring Split this year, being undefeated throughout the tournament. At MSI 2022, however, they lost games to G2 and RNG in the rumble stages, possibly jeopardizing their status as the favorites to take the trophy. G2, on the other hand, had a similar undefeated tale in the LEC playoffs and even became the first team to take a game away from T1 in the rumble stage. On the other hand, they also lost games against smaller teams during the rumble stage, raising questions about their miracle run in the tournament.
Both teams had a lot at stake for today’s MSI semifinals. The last time they met was in 2019, and G2 came on top of that series. T1 looked to serve cold revenge to their foes, while G2 aimed to repeat history and knock the South Korean host out of the tournament.
