On Jan. 30, in the 2021 League of Legends Champions Korea Spring Split, DRX faced Fredit BRION and Gen.G faced Liiv SANDBOX. Both DRX and Gen.G were able to collect their fourth win of the season.
The first match was between DRX and Fredit BRION. In game 1, Fredit BRION was head in the early game. They had priority in the mid and bottom lanes and took 3 kills in 10 minutes. On the other side in the top lane, Hwang "Kingen" Seong-hoon's Gnar scaled well. This stopped Fredit BRION's snowball as Gnar Teleported to mid lane when Fredit BRION tried to dive. Afterward, Gnar was in the middle of all the teamfights leading the win.
Eom "UmTi" Seong-hyeon was substituted in for the second game and Fredit BRION didn't allow a single kill. The early-mid game was close but after Fredit BRION sneaked Baron, they went much ahead. From that point, there was nothing DRX could do.
Fredit BRION led the third game at the beginning. They had a big win in the fight at Rift Herald, and UmTi's Lillia went ahead in levels. Within 15 minutes, the global gold difference was at about 3K. However, DRX had more dragon stacks and Kingen's Gnar had priority over the sidelanes. Gnar again led the fights with perfect initiations and DRX was able to collect their fourth win of the season.
Gen.G collected a clean 2-0 victory over Liiv SANDBOX. In the first game, Liiv SANDBOX tried to take down Gwak "Bdd" Bo-seong's Azir, but they didn't succeed. Naturally, Gen.G gained the initiative and the game just went as they wanted it to be. Kim "Life" Jeong-min's Leona shined in the game.
Life picked Jarvan IV again as support. With Jarvan IV, the bot duo made a lane kill on Xayah. Liiv SANDBOX tried to find their way through the top side. Park "Summit" Woo-tae's Aatrox played well, leading Liiv SANDBOX. Throughout the game, Life's Jarvan IV didn't give Xayah any room. There was a critical situation where Liiv SANDBOX won the teamfight, but as they attempted Baron, Bdd's Azir and Park "Ruler" Jae-hyuk's Kai'Sa took over with a 2v5 win. With that fight, Gen.G took Baron and the win.
