On the 8th (KST), DRX and DAMWON Gaming each shut out SANDBOX Gaming and SeolHaeOne Prince in the 2020 League of Legends Champions Korea Summer Split.
Both of the games in the match between DRX and SANDBOX Gaming featured Ashe vs Caitlyn. Kim “Deft” Hyuk-kyu and Ryu “Keria” Min-seok’s Ashe and Morgana dominated their opponent’s Caitlyn and Bard. DRX kept snowballing their lead, collecting most of the objectives on the map and all SANDBOX Gaming was able to do was to delay their march. It seemed that SANDBOX Gaming might be able to turn the game around, but DRX didn’t budge. After acquiring the Baron buff, DRX closed the game.
Game 2 was more dominating than the first game. Choi “Doran” Hyeon-joon’s Kennen had an amazing game, picking up five solo kills. DRX picked up wins in skirmishes all over the Rift and there was no way that SANDBOX Gaming was able to come back. Through the win, DRX collected their 13th win of the season.
To DAMWON Gaming the early game kill score didn’t matter. In the early game, Park “Kuma” Hyeon-gyu’s Lee Sin moved around the Rift actively, feeding kills to his teammates. However, the global gold difference didn’t spread much apart. Rather, Jang “Nuguri” Ha-gwon’s Jayce, who gave up the first blood, came back strong very quickly. SeolHaeOne Prince was able to smile for a short time. After they early game, they fell helplessly.
Game 2 was like a replay of game 1, just on the other side. DAMWON Gaming countered SeolHaeOne Prince’s impulsive attempts very systematically. As DAMWON Gaming took benefits from the early game, the game was blown in no time. DAMWON Gaming pounded on SeolHaeOne Prince the whole time until their Nexus was destroyed. Without much trouble, DAMWON Gaming returned to the top of the standings.
