A good sign of winning the Summer 2R Best Performance Team
Will the tradition continue that the best-performing team in the second round of Summer wins?
The final match of “2020 League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) Summer” will be held online on the 5th as a showdown between Damwon Gaming and DRX. While the DRX has secured at least two seeds for the Rolled Cup with the advance to the finals, the importance of the finals is different because Damwon has to play a starting game if he doesn’t win.
Despite being weak in multiple premise, if there is a positive jinx for Damwon, the team that performed best in the second round of the LCK Summer regular season must have won the title. Starting with SK Telecom T1, which recorded 8 wins, 1 loss and +13 in the second round of the 2015 LCK Summer, the Lax Tigers, Longju Gaming and KT Rollster lifted the trophy. In particular, in Summer last year, T1 had the best second-round performance of seven wins, two losses and plus nine, even though they started the postseason in wild card games, and won the title after a stamp break.
In this regular season of LCK Summer, Damwon recorded the second round victory for the first time since switching to the league system. Based on the power of the destructive upper body line and the harmony of the stable bottom, the team was shown several times in a short period of time. Many fans expect the jinx that the best team in the second round will win because it is the best performance since Damwon was promoted.
The second round of the regular season is in contact with the postseason, and the team that has gained momentum with good results is relatively likely to win. It is expected that Damwon, who is considered to be one of the best players in the team’s ability to make plays, will be able to continue the momentum of the past summer winners.
