The last semifinals match of the 2020 League of Legends World Championship was marked by an epic clash of LPL teams. Dark horses Suning Gaming managed to upset the league’s champion, Top Esports, 3-1, knocking them out of the competition and advancing to the finals.
The LPL "lions" quickly took advantage of the opponents' mistakes throughout the series, while showcasing dominance in the early game, guaranteeing level 1 advantages. Suning Gaming was able to close out games with mastery by having the player skill to back up the late game skirmishes.
In a similar fashion to their previous match against Fnatic, Top Esports had the odds against their favor, with one enemy win away from elimination by game three, with a 1-2 score against Suning Gaming. The outcome, however, has not been positive.
Suning Gaming will move forward to the 2020 World Championship finals, to face LCK’s Summer Split champions DAMWON Gaming.
