[People's E-sports Review S10 Finals: LGD's Shanghai Beach Guards] On the afternoon of September 30, the S10 League of Legends finals finals ended. LGD, which everyone worried about, changed the haze of the previous two days and advanced to the S10 race. Fortunately, the status is not too late. For the audience, LGD’s performance these days is like a roller coaster-LGD, who had a bad start, entered the siege and knockout stage with the penultimate place in the group, and in the BO5 knockout round, two 3-0 cleanly Next game.
"This competition is like a movie plot," said Hu Biao, deputy general manager of LGD club, exclaimed after the game. "But really, I don't dare to write a movie story like that."
As the fourth seed in the LPL division, LGD gave everyone more expectations. However, their debut did not satisfy everyone, losing to PSG in the opening game, and losing to R7 one after another on the second day-"What happened to LGD?" This became everyone's first question. The same question also appeared on the players themselves.
After the first day, Langx was also confused in the interview: "I don't know why this happened... Maybe it's in a bad state, but I feel that I'm in a good state."
Faced with the successive failures of the first two days, LGD made obvious changes on the third day: their BP has become more stable and their decision-making on the court has become more careful.
After defeating V3 and losing to UOL, LGD must face a "life and death" playoff with V3.
From the fourth seed of the LPL, known as the "First Division", to the edge of the cliff, LGD has reached a precarious position step by step. They were also jokingly called by netizens at this time that they would return to Hangzhou if they lost a game. From the third day of the game, LGD began to gradually enter the state of S10. On September 30th, after LGD defeated the last opponent and successfully qualified, the team members finally got a rare relaxing evening. After returning to the hotel, the team members went out to dinner together more easily. At this time, Hu Biao, the team's deputy general manager, did not breathe a sigh of relief. He was already considering the next schedule.
"In the first two days, there were a lot of scolding voices on the Internet. Someone asked us to buy tickets to Hangzhou." Hu Biao smiled. "But to be honest, I have prepared for the worst. If I can't make it into the finals, then I can only accept it, and I will let the players accept it."
On the evening of September 30, when the moon rose, all LGD staff left the hotel. On the day before the Mid-Autumn Festival, they can finally relax-they are about to enter the test of the death group, the future of the "optimistic team" LGD is not so optimistic, but I believe that they are not so pessimistic, who have been rewarded.
