On August 10, the LCK Summer Competition ushered in a match between SKT and HLE. But in the end, what is more surprising is that HLE won SKT with a total score of 2:1, which not only ended SKT’s winning record, but also became the biggest “water ghost” of LCK after defeating DWG in the last round.
In fact, judging from the performance of HLE in these three matches, it is quite different from the HLE at the beginning of the LCK summer match. And this performance naturally makes many LCK fans feel that if HLE can have this momentum at the beginning of the summer game, there is no need to struggle on the edge of “relegation”. But at the same time, SKT seems to be confused in the confrontation with HLE.
In the first round, Khan’s single killing caused HLE to snowball, and in the third round, the BP idea did not match the current version. Especially on the choice of Quine in the upper unit, although Khan has played a very huge online advantage, but did not play the hero Quine’s highly mobile support capabilities. On the contrary, Richard’s Akari is very active and has been walking all the time. Therefore, even if SKT is in the third inning of the economic advantage, but because of the lineup can not play a good front-line battle with HLE.
In addition, in the last match of the Dragon Regiment, SKT can not effectively fight HLE 5V5 in the Dragon Regiment because of its brittle lineup. Hence, in the case that HLE is lagging behind SKT, HLE uses better terrain to punish the dragon. Although some players died in battle, they still retained the Dragon seed.
Because of the existence of this “dragon species”, together with SKT, this line-up can not be positively linked with HLE. HLE is also a good way to break the highland of SKT. While the HLE is on the road, SKT also knows that the line-up can not play in front of it, or let Khan’s Quinn sideband. However, the HLE’s intention to take SKT with one wave has been decided. With the advantage of TP skills on HLE side, HLE still takes SKT with one wave. In this process, although Rico’s Acari forcibly cut off HLE’s medium-sized and single aircraft, the ADC Lucian on HLE side still exports to the end and takes SKT with one wave.
It has to be said that HLE has played well in these three matches, and SKT’s loss does not have a particularly big impact on the ranking. However, this defeat naturally gave SKT an alarm. Finally, I hope SKT won’t lose their sense of winning the game because of this defeat.
What do you think about the end of SKT’s winning streak, ladies and gentlemen?
