[LCK Today] Both Gen.G and NS RedForce gets a 2-0 sweep as the race for the playoffs continues in the LCK

On day 25 of the 2021 LCK Summer split, NS RedForce managed to defeat T1 with a clean 2-0 sweep, grabbing their 7th match victory in the regular split.


Hoping to secure a top seed in the playoffs, NS faced off against T1 in the 2nd series of the night. In game 1, NS focused their macro around their jungler, Han “Peanut” Wang-ho, in the early game, leading to Peanut killing the enemy jungler and getting massively ahead in the jungle. With him as the core engage tool, NS was able to take explosive victories and led the series 1-0.


In game 2, T1 seemed to lead the early game. Moon “Cuzz” Woo-chan was able to catch Peanut in NS’ jungle, seemingly getting a pretty solid lead. However, NS fought back hard, as NS’ bot lane managed to rake in kills, and with the momentum behind him, Kim “Gori” Tae-woo’s Akali was able to get ahead as well. Eventually, NS pressed on their lead and managed to take ocean soul, sweeping T1 2-0.

Meanwhile, in the first series of the day, Gen.G swept DRX 2-0 and managed to stop their losing streak. Gen.G managed to get a comeback victory in game 1; DRX’s jungler and support player, Hong “Pyosik” Chang-hyeon and Yoon “Jun” Se-jun was able to grab a solid lead for the team in the early to mid game. However, DRX’s teamfighting proved to be very messy, and Gen.G was able to exploit that weakness and take game 1.


Game 2 of the series seemed a lot easier for Gen.G. Even though the rookie mid laner for DRX, Bae “Jett” Ho-young, managed to get three kills early on, Gen.G was able to shut him down with a 3-man gank in the mid lane. The snowball for Gen.G grew, as Hwang “Kingen” Seong-hoon’s Jayce continued to die. With Park “Ruler” Jae-hyuk proving to be explosive in teamfights, they took the series 2-0.
