FunPlus Phoenix recuperated today after a shaky start to the 2020 LPL Summer Split by removing Team WE, ending their winning streak with a 2-1 success.

The world champions won a hard-fought very first video game after Group WE secured a big lead early on. However FPX played much better in the second and third video games of the series.

Team WE were on point in the very first game, showing mechanical prowess on their champions, but fell short of closing out the game with the lead they accrued. Although they had dominant teamfights around the dragon and Baron pits, that wasn’t enough to secure a triumph.

Tian was on fire in this series with his clutch Smites, protecting the required goals to keep FPX in the video game although they were at first behind on gold and experience.

The 2nd video game was the reverse of the first, with FPX attaining an early lead but failing to maintain it and losing objective after objective. Even though they had Kayle in the leading lane, who’s a beast as the game passes, it wasn’t enough to remove Team WE.

The game generally ended when Team WE secured vision around the Baron and FPX went to contest it. They were rubbed out the Rift in moments by Team WE.

After adjusting the series, the momentum remained in Group WE’s favor. Entering into the third video game, both groups adjusted their pick and ban stage, denying convenience choices from their opponents or selecting them away.

In the last game, FPX’s assistance Crisp stepped up by picking Nautilus and landing vital hooks throughout the video game. He began throughout the laning phase and protected a constant gold lead for his ADC, then continued landing them as the video game went by to take towers, dragons, and the Baron.

Group WE had no response for this, passing away one by one to FPX’s superior teamplay. In the end, they failed as FPX grew too huge of a huge lead and ended the video game.

FPX will have 2 significant obstacles next week. They’ll need to deal with both Invictus Gaming and eStar. They have actually been looking strong recently, so FPX will require to conquer a big barrier to defeat them.
