Nice of G2 to give us a quick 3-0, just in time for Sunday's lunch with family.

Rolling Claps 3 times in a row should be illegal.

Didn't you know? Craps got benched this season to prepare for the finals.

[–]sevinon 39 points40 points  (1 child)

It was all Claps summer split. I honestly think the second half of this year is the best Caps has ever played.

[–]Quotes_League 3735 points3736 points  (167 children)

Clid is now 3-11 vs G2

This is the second time BDD's* team has gotten first in groups then swept in QF

*and also Rascal, forgot he was also on Longzhu

[–]Ace_OPB 1446 points1447 points  (112 children)

He was an absolute liability this entire series. Jankos ran circles around him. Horrifying performance. Kr fans already dont like bdd and clid that much. After this shocker, I hope they dont visit the forums because my god this will be brutal.

[–]pacotacobell 639 points640 points  (23 children)

Seems like a bit of both Clid shitting the bed and Jankos really stepping up from groups.

[–]Ace_OPB 356 points357 points  (7 children)

Ohh definitely jankos played his series of the tournament. By far his best performance.

[–]redditexcuse 383 points384 points  (37 children)

He got outclassed by Jankos

The same Jankos that got highly criticized and in a "terrible meta for him"

[–]_PPBottle 368 points369 points  (17 children)

G2 clearly said the problem is not Jankos playing farming junglers, it's the team allowing him to play farming junglers

Reddit silver analysts: then that means he cant play farming junglers!

[–]v_is_my_bias 78 points79 points  (0 children)

They solved the problem by making sure they had globals and teleports to play around. Allowing caps/wunder to help out the lanes jankos couldn't get to in time.

[–]nguyenduylan 144 points145 points  (11 children)

you mean BDD? because Rascal was just a top sub for Khan in 2017 iirc, he didn't play a single game that tournament and they were both on Longzhu that 1st in group that year.

[–]Lucianv2 52 points53 points  (3 children)

Pretty sure he actually did play in one meaningless(for Longzhu) game in groups. But yeah long stretch to say "Rascal's team".

G2 vs Damwon is gonna be really fun

If you look closely on the water cg effect on the stage you can see TL, FLY and TSM team icons as a symbol for drowning in pools.

DWG vs G2 is hype as fuck

Sunning vs TES hopefully dont end up like the stomp of summer playoffs, Sunning looked really great, possibly best LPL team while TES was one FNC throw away in game 4 to get eliminated

[–]CockatielGeneral 403 points404 points  (31 children)

He makes team fights so fucking exciting to watch. And I am glad we finally got him to the point you can't blind pick him as easily and he feels more niche cause he does punish some team comps so much and i love it

[–]SGKurisu 73 points74 points  (1 child)

Sylas as a counterpick rather than a meta staple is how it should always be. If this champ is picked in the wrong situation and gets behind he should be horrible, but if the draft and play is smart it is just so entertaining.

[–]Gwydior 230 points231 points  (16 children)

Any champion that lets high skill players do flashy shit that can change the course of the game while remaining fair is a good champion in my book

[–]GatoKing 138 points139 points  (22 children)

Wunder plays classic. It's just Naxx/TBC waiting room at this point

[–]Liminal_Millennial 948 points949 points  (66 children)

I think that a huge difference-maker for the European kings (G2 and FNC) is their Supports.

Hyli and Mikyx are absolutely huge at accelerating the early and mid-games for their teams.

I don't think I've seen any of that huge playmaking ability from LCK Supports internationally for ages now.

[–]eclip468 526 points527 points  (15 children)

Hyli and Mikyx both showed up huge this worlds. Some of the best performance I've seen from them, and they've been pretty consistent as well.

[–]TheOneWithLateStart dat ass tho 278 points279 points  (28 children)

Caps is insane but how good is Perkz and Mikyx?

Also why would G2 play trough Jankos if everybody is a carry?

[–]traeskoen21 70 points71 points  (19 children)

Wunder quietly holding his own, and commits when it matters

[–]TheOneWithLateStart dat ass tho 215 points216 points  (18 children)

Wunder is a superstar to me. Hes good at all metas, probably best on splitpushing. What sells me the most about him is the fact that he can play any champ with little to none time to prepare. He singlehandly forced riot to nerf Soraka top in one week

[–]GarryTheCarry 121 points122 points  (15 children)

They nerfed Soraka top, Sona top and Pyke top thanks to him and all of that in 2 years period

[–]traeskoen21 37 points38 points  (0 children)

Yea, to some extent I agree. He’s not the flashiest ever but his wave management mid game is phenomenal, knows when to push and roam/shadow for engages. Rarely did they have to pick up a wave for turret taking after a fight.

[–]DoctoryeIlow 1864 points1865 points  (124 children)

Holy shit man that last game destroyed my heart, Ruler was single handedly keeping geng in that game he was unkillable

A big grocery store can have a million dollar in revenue monthly. Hell, a twenty person company where everyone makes 50k is a million dollar operation.

[–]ClingyChunk 69 points70 points  (1 child)

I'm a gold 1 player and I would be happy to go 11/0/11 even once in ranked. This Cap guy goes that against a world class Korean team

I saw on Twitter they were overflowing with confidence. It was fun to look at.

If they have so much confidence but then get 3-0'd, that would shock them.

LS: "Caps himself would admit that BDD is a better player" when rating BDD over Caps.

[–]MoxZenyte 1779 points1780 points  (152 children)

I mean BDD completely outplayed Caps this series, did you see that 20 cs lead while Caps killed the rest of his team around the map?

The funny thing is this is the 2nd year LS has criticized Caps for his roaming playstyle (throwback to "Caps roams because he can't lane"), but it keeps working. Either he's just extremely lucky or there's something about the game that LS fundamentally is missing.

[–]Fencing_fenrir 1291 points1292 points  (44 children)

Did you see BDD freeze the wave while Caps roamed? He's playing the waves to perfection. While Caps is dicking around and taking advantage of GenG, BDD is costing G2 50 gold per minute. If he does that for 8 minutes, that's an entire Doran's Ring advantage given to GenG.

G2 are just lucky that GenG played suboptimally, if they played perfectly G2 wouldn't have won.

[–]Chr0nicConsumer 678 points679 points  (3 children)

Caps relies on getting 50 gold from nexus kills because he can't cs. What a noob.

[–]Itzjacki 332 points333 points  (11 children)

GenG played suboptimally, if they played perfectly G2 wouldn't have won.

Truly the hottest take.

[–]Migraine- 98 points99 points  (3 children)

It's one of the best explanations of LS' fallacious way of viewing the game I've ever seen.

Beautifully simple.

[–]FinalesFunkln 54 points55 points  (1 child)

He can have that doran's ring, Caps will just stack his book in the meanwhile.

[–]I_really_love_u On a Tilt Streak 176 points177 points  (1 child)

Did you see how fast Bdd was cycling through his F keys? He can actually spot Caps killing his teammates before it even happens! Also the mad man was able to leave fountain on average .031 seconds faster than Caps. Caps is very lucky that these normies can't spot these huge skill gaps

[–]panman18 373 points374 points  (35 children)

LS also criticizes Doinb for that playstyle too. He backed up Nemesis statement that Doinb was the worst mid at worlds last year. Remember LS's "bad positioning, bad auto attacks" rant about Doinb. LS has a certain vision of the game and doesn't like it when people innovate outside of that.

[–]mindziusas 184 points185 points  (11 children)

The fact that LS predicted GenG to win 3-0 might suggest that there is something missing in his thought process.

[–]IjuststartedOnePiece 360 points361 points  (53 children)

Does LS ever watch LEC?

How many times does Caps has to prove that when he turns it on, he is legit a top mid.

[–]hahapeepeepoopooooo 113 points114 points  (0 children)

As soon as G2 lost the baron fight I knew it was over

[–]WalIRose 537 points538 points  (10 children)

Faker got 3-0'd by GenG so G2 made sure to 3-0 them as well.

He said that Caps is not a top 5 mid laner at Worlds, BDD > Caps, GenG 3-0 G2, LCK > G2.

As much as I love to LS, what Asian juice is he drinking?

[–]Yshrey 511 points512 points  (50 children)

geng 3-0 g2

[–]MdmaThrowawayYay 217 points218 points  (42 children)

Please do not tell me these are all his predictions?

[–]Pletterpet 423 points424 points  (32 children)

I can conform that he always, always bets against g2 and is always wrong. Its been a while but most were 3-0 or 3-1 predictions.

But tbh LS is not someone you should take serious in predictions that isnt LCK vs LCK.

[–]ibubblei 229 points230 points  (7 children)

the problem is that eventually korea will win and people will be like, see I told you! After being wrong 10 times in a row

[–]HalfAssResponse 97 points98 points  (4 children)

thats just ls in a nutshell

like when in s8 he said that tank meta is coming and ornn wil be played 24/7, then it turned out that it was a carry top meta with 0 tank priority

but then ornn started being played 24/7 but only after major nerfs to meta picks in s9-s10 and ofc ls was like "see i told you"

[–]PsychoPass1 56 points57 points  (0 children)

[–]Jezzerai Rookie and Deft <3 437 points438 points  (47 children)

Give Ruler a fucking team man holy shit, it's so sad to see such a world class player on a team like this. I'd love to see him on an LPL contender next year tbh

[–]nrj6490 150 points151 points  (7 children)

Damwon with Ruler would just be unfair. Ghost fits that team really well though.

[–]gartn3r 264 points265 points  (17 children)

Good reminder that when G2 play seriously, they don't aim to just defeat their opponents, but to mentally break them down as well.

Edit: This is how GenG looked when they got baron and that turnaround fight.

Scary shit.

[–]NerrionEU 99 points100 points  (2 children)

I think the coach realised that they only won that teamfight because G2 got way too cocky(mostly Perkz), in a proper 5v5 they stood no chance.

[–]Moaning-Lisa 47 points48 points  (0 children)

Yeah it pretty much was the best luck ever for Rascal to get the tripple there. It was VERY unlikely they would have that much luck again, which showed GenG didnt do shit with that baron

[–]Aceofacez10 79 points80 points  (7 children)

one of the strangest backstage reactions to a won teamfight I've ever seen.

[–]SufW 113 points114 points  (2 children)

I think it dawned on him that literally every star aligned for them in that teamfight for a perfect victory and they barely scraped it.

[–]Myelix 39 points40 points  (0 children)

the amount of "this is fine" soraka emote spams in that series by perkz and mikyx made me laugh every single time, they were REALLY trying to break their mental

[–]Enjays1 35 points36 points  (0 children)

At this point Clid probably has nightmares about G2

[–]Badassdinosaur5 67 points68 points  (7 children)

Am I crazy for thinking that Miky is legit the best performing member of G2 this tournament? Sure Caps went absolutely nuts this series and especially game 2 but goddamn Miky just doesnt miss. He just doesnt.

I also have no idea how G2 is getting away with some of the shit they are doing. While I am happy that they clearly won this series I am quite fearful Damwon could expose them

[–]tree_33 54 points55 points  (3 children)

Oh perks is caught in mid? Miky jumps in, charms 3, saves perks, and escapes to turn the fight onto clid. Wtf was that!

[–]sangpls 2003 points2004 points  (163 children)

None of the teams from group C won their quarterfinals game. TSM still went 0-6 in that group

[–]Offtheheazy 698 points699 points  (31 children)

FNC almost beat TES.

Going in no one expected a group C team to dominate. I think this was to be expected

[–]FanInPain 169 points170 points  (1 child)



[–]LargeSnorlax 649 points650 points  (153 children)

I don't think I've seen a team look as lost as GenG did in this series.

Rascal trying flanks he should never be doing. Life flashing into 4 people by himself at 200 health for no reason. Klid being lost? Life in that infernal soul dragon pit? Hello? Only Ruler looked like he was actually playing the game, with Rascal and BDD having occasional signs of life.

Just such weird communication - Clid didn't look like he wanted to do half the plays he was doing.

Wadid was right on the money when before the series he said GenG had weaker mental than G2

you see them falling apart and Rascal getting mega tilted a few times with Ruler trying to drag 4 corpses behind him

G2 losing a 2v5 while saying we lowkey win this was some of the best comms you can hear.

LCK has some of the worst mental I have ever seen. DRX loses before the series even starts and Gen G loses after 1 bad game.
