The LoL Worlds has reached the last four with the semis
T1 and JDG should be a closely fought series
Gen.G will be looking to move past DRX to claim their spot in the finals
T1 have managed to reach the semi-finals once again and will be looking to improve on last year's tournament, where they were knocked out in the semi-finals by DK. JDG will be looking for their first world title and will be in for a hard-fought match against T1
T1 have been in great form recently and have looked very clean and methodical so far at worlds. This match should be the battle of the top laners, as both Zeus and 369 have been in great form. Zeus has been exceptional on carries and is yet to play a game on a tank or a supportive pick.
He has a 28% damage share and a 61.5% Kill Participation score. He is able to build a 1000 gold lead by the 15-minute mark, and he is able to use this lead to create advantages for himself and for T1 in the sidelane. He is able to become a splitpush threat and requires multiple members to stop him. T1 is able to cross the map and take advantage thanks to the pressure created by Zeus.
Gumayusi has also had a great tournament so far and has had a return to form. He has a 25% damage share at a 71% kill participation percent and has been one of the standout players for T1 in teamfights.
JDG have looked very impressive so far in both the group stage and the quarter-finals. 369 has had a fantastic tournament and has shown the ability to play both carry champions and tanks like the Ornn and Sejuani.
He has a 750 gold lead by the 15-minute mark and is able to make big plays for JDG in teamfights. He is able to find flanks onto the enemy carries and is able to take them out of the teamfight allowing JDG to secure the objective, putting them one step closer to winning the game.
Yagao has had some standout performances so far on champions like the Sylas, Azir, and Taliyah. He has a 22.6% kill participation percent, is able to push out his lane to roam to the side lanes, and is able to create plays to get the rest of his team a lead.
This battle between the two Korean teams should be quite exciting as DRX have improved as the tournament has progressed, and should be able to match Gen.G quite well.
Gen.G were pushed to the limit by DK and will be looking for a clean series against DRX to show that they are still in contention for the world championship.
Chovy has had a great tournament so far and has been the one putting out the majority of the damage for DRX with a 27.8% damage share. He has been able to consistently gain a lead in lane over his opponent through a CS lead. He averages a 340 gold lead by the 15-minute mark and is able to use this gold lead to create an item advantage over his lane opponent.
Ruler has also had a great tournament so far and has shown the ability to play many different AD Carries. He has the largest damage share on the team and is able to put out 28.7% of the team’s damage at a 7.8 KDA. He is a benefactor of the Rift herald plays and is able to gain a 500 gold lead by the 15-minute mark thanks to Peanut and Lehends. He uses this lead to try and find picks in the midgame which enables Gen.G to get set up around objectives.
DRX have steadily improved since the play-in stage and will be eager to upset one of the tournament favorites in Gen.G to find a berth at the worlds finals.
One of the main carries on the team is Deft, and he has been playing at a very high level so far. He has received a lot of Jungle attention from Pyosik and this has enabled him to gain a lead in lane of 670 gold by the 15-minute mark. This has enabled him to reach item breakpoints earlier, which gives DRX a window to pick fights in, where the opponent team will be slightly weaker.
Zeka has also had a great tournament so far and has shown his competency on picks like the Sylas, Akali, and Azir. He is able to deal 22% of the team's damage and is the one to make big plays, either finding a pick in the midgame or flanking the enemy carries to take them out of the fight.
