This weekend will usher in the last weekend of the regular season. Six games in two days will not only determine the final playoff ranking, but also produce the last two teams to enter the playoffs. Among them, spring champion IG and runner-up JDG are included. At present, both IG and JDG are facing the situation that they may not qualify for the playoffs. Because JDG is outside the top eight, there is only theoretical hope for the playoffs. IG is currently in the seventh place and still has the initiative.
If WE loses in the first game of August 17 against V5, IG will get the seventh playoff ticket directly. But once WE wins, IG will face a life-and-death battle. They had to beat RW in the subsequent games to lock in playoff tickets. If they lose, they will not only be overtaken by WE, but also lose the initiative. It depends on the final game of LNG to decide whether to enter the playoffs. And they lost in the regular season against WE and LNG. Once the big points and small points are the same, IG ranking will be disadvantaged.
However, in the face of this crucial game, IG made a major decision before the game. Last night they announced the starting line-up for tomorrow’s game, and Ning, who has missed two games, will return to play today.
As we all know, Ning’s condition is one of the key points for IG, the spring champion, to hobble in summer. Ning’s condition has been fluctuating since the breakup in the midseason group matches began, and all kinds of off-court rhythms are constantly surrounding them. After tossing about for most of the season, IG finally transferred Leyan from the second team to the first team. Although they lost the first game to RNG, they finally got the first 2-0 in the last one. And Leyan got his first MVP in his LPL career.
Leyan’s integration with the team was on track, but I didn’t expect IG would choose to replace Ning. However, after Xiao Yueyan came to the first team, Ning’s rank of Hanfu finally began to update. And after this period of practice, he went up two levels in one breath, from the diamond to the master.
After Ning lost its starting line-up, there were rumors on the Internet that the official rank score of Ning had a hard requirement, so that it could reach the standard. So he was able to return to the starting line-up, probably because he came to Master Duan to meet the standard. However, for the change of starting line-up, the fan messages below IG official blog show two sides, one side of fans support Ning’s return. But on the other hand, more fans are angered, thinking that it’s hard to get the first 2-0, but it’s hard to change people.
