The recent additions to the roster have assisted IG secure this tidy sweep.

Invictus Gaming clean swept eStar Video gaming in the third week of 2021 LPL Spring Split, recuperating after a devastating loss recently to Group WE.

The entire roster looked much better today with TheShy playing meta champs in the top lane rather of his unorthodox convenience choices. This helped IG funnel resources onto other lanes instead of having to focus on securing TheShy’s aggressive plays.

The MVP votes went to the current additions to IG throughout the offseason, ADC Zhang “Wink” Rui and jungler Peng “XUN” Li-Xun. Wink’s played Miss Fortune throughout the very first video game, ending up the game with a 4/0/7 KDA and 78 percent kill involvement, while XUN played Pantheon in the 2nd video game with a 11/2/5 KDA.

IG put a great deal of concern on the global ultimate picks such as Pantheon and Twisted Fate in the draft stage. ES reacted with Galio to counter that method, which proved to be effective. While ES shut down the TF and Pantheon rather well, Wink on Miss Fortune in the bottom lane was taking control of the lane. He had a 30-cs difference by 10 minutes against the opposing ADC, requiring him to sit under his tower to avoid passing away.

With a fed ADC on the team, IG changed their strategy and began grouping up rather of using a split push technique with two worldwide ultimates. They kept picking up the dragons one by one, before protecting the Ocean Dragon Soul at the 31th-minute mark. ES required a teamfight after it, however due to a product difference and power of the Dragon Soul, lost the battle and the video game.

In the 2nd video game, IG put a lot of priority on Pantheon when again, which permitted them to dismantle the demoralized ES squad. XUN had a lot of pressure, protecting four eliminates by six minutes. Once he got level 6, he utilized his ultimate to gank the weakened lanes to extend the advantage for IG. ES gradually bled away and lost the second video game in 23 minutes.

This win helped IG climb in the 2021 LPL Spring Split standings to the seventh location. They still have a long way to precede arriving of the ladder, but if they maintain their performance like today, they must have the ability to reach it in the matter of weeks.

IG will be back on the rift next week with 2 matches versus Rogue Warriors and FunPlus Phoenix. While RW has looked dull and must be an easy win for IG, FPX have actually looked quite dominant in their past few games with Nuguri leading his team to success.
