EG vs. T1 is by no means a clash of titans. It is, at its core, a pretty tremendous mismatch. Still, both teams love to skirmish and are very adept at the game (to say the least), so you really ought to tune in! And, well, T1’s playing which, in itself, is always a reason to forgo your other responsibilities and observe the spectacle.
Granted, they’ve lost a bit of steam after dropping a game to both G2 Esports and Royal Never Give Up. They’re still incredibly capable and amongst the most dangerous teams in the world, but they’re also fallible and can, by the looks of it, be punished severely with the right prep and execution.
We’re not quite sure, but one thing’s for certain: they’ve lost a fair bit of their momentum and are no longer considered as an unstoppable “force of nature” but rather a layered, capable team that can “bleed.”
And that, for a titan like T1, is a pretty underwhelming state of affairs.
EG vs. T1 — A Shot at “Redemption”
It’s still not time to sound the alarms. And, well, it’s not like dropping a game to Royal Never Give Up is scandalous or anything. They were perceived and deemed as equals coming into the tournament and there are still numerous ways in which the Rumble Stage could shake out.
Evil Geniuses are feisty as well, but they’re not on the same level as the LCK champions (hardly a surprise). Heck, they’re not even close! They could, however, make this one ever so slightly more competitive, so make sure to tune in as a good time is all but guaranteed!
