China’s LPL is getting wilder with every passing day. The 16th-place team, Vici Gaming, managed to beat RNG, a top-four squad, today.
Bot laner iBoy had a marvelous first game on Miss Fortune and received the MVP award. He had great positioning and awareness in teamfights, ending with four kills, one death, and nine assists.
Mid laner Forge smurfed on the RNG squad in the second game on Qiyana, ending the game with eight kills, one death, and two assists to earn the MVP.
The first game started quite rough for VG. After failing an early dive in the top lane, they set themselves behind by giving RNG’s Aatrox an early lead with a double buff.
This advantage allowed RNG to have immense pressure up in the top lane, demanding attention from VG’s jungler and freeing pressure from his other lanes. Even though RNG had a 5,000 gold lead, they gave up two early drakes, which became their doom later on.
After RNG overextended to kill the second tier tower in the mid lane, VG responded with a wombo combo, securing two kills and giving themselves some room to get back into the game.
VG secured the Cloud Dragon Soul and went to Baron, but RNG were having none of that. They forced a teamfight but they lost it, costing them the first game.
