In the final day of the 2019 League of Legends World Championship Play-In, Group C is coming down to the wire. After losing to Southeast Asia champion MEGA Esports in its first round robin, VCS 2nd seed LowKey Esports.Vietnam continued to add to the parity in the group by defeating MEGA and eliminating Southeast Asia from the World Championship.
LKE Support Bùi Nguyễn "Venus" Quốc Hoàng joined Laure Valée for an interview after the game, and was surging with confidence. LKE had entered the second round robin with a 1-1 record, following up its day 1 loss against MEGA with an impressive victory over 3rd LMS seed Hong Kong Attitude. After defeating MEGA and already 1-0 against HKA, Venus seemed more sure of his team than ever.
"I feel strongly that we are the best team in our group," Venus stated. "After watching HKA's last match, I think our next game against them will be easy."
The final game of the day, excluding potential tie-breakers, will be the aforementioned match between Hong Kong Attitude and Lowkey Esports. With MEGA eliminated from the group, and subsequently, the tournament, both HKA and LKE have qualified for the Play-In Knockout Stage. The winner of the final match in Group C will secure the group's 1st Seed, and avoid the likes of DAMWON Gaming, Clutch Gaming, and Splyce as potential Knockout Stage opponents.
