On the 4th, in the 2021 LCK Spring Split, DRX defeated kt Rolster in another 2-1 series. In the second match, Fredit BRION upset T1 with a clean sweep.
In game 1 of DRX vs. kt Rolster, DRX showed what happens if they let Hong “Pyosik” Chang-hyeon pick Udyr. Pyosik scaled very quickly with 10 CS per minute while his opponent jungler repeated successful and unsuccessful ganks. By scaling much, Pyosik’s Udyr performed well in teamfights and towed DRX’s win.
The second game lasted 50 minutes. It seemed kt Rolster would take the game as they had a 15,000 gold lead at oe point of the game. But Seraphine and Dr. Mundo’s strengths kept DRX in the game. They took the game to the Elder Dragon and reduced the gold difference down to 3,000 gold. It was a good fight, but kt Rolster managed to maintain their concentration in the last fight and tied the game.
Game 3 was another showcase for Pyosik. He proved that his Lillia is also top-tier. DRX didn’t lose grasp of their early lead and snowballed to victory.
T1 brought their youngest roster yet — Zeus, Oner, Clozer, Gumayusi, and Keria while Lee “Yaharong” Chan-ju had his debut in Fredit BRION. In the game, Eom “UmTi” Seong-hyeon led his team with an early gank and collected all the objectives through the lead. It seemed that T1 endured well with solid laning, but it wasn’t enough. Fredit BRION dominated the first game.
Game 2 wasn’t much different. From early in the game, Fredit BRION didn’t avoid fights, and won most of them. UmTi’s Taliyah had another fantastic performance and led the team’s victory. Through the win, Fredit BRION collected their 4th win of the season.
