Invictus Gaming have emerged from week 7 of the 2020 LPL Summer Season Split with a 9-3 record following a close-fought series versus Royal Never Offer Up today.

The previous League of Legends world champions revealed their strength in the 2-1 series– especially jungler Ning, who is renowned for being a coin-flip player.

Rookie received the MVP award for the first video game after a stellar Syndra efficiency, while Ning got his much-deserved MVP title in the 3rd game with Volibear.

The first game was an outright outstanding performance from Invictus Gaming., who handled to secure dragons even while being more than 10 kills behind.

After securing a Mountain Dragon, they put a stop to RNG’s rampage. With the Mountain Dragon Soul, IG had the ability to slowly win teamfight after teamfight, securing a clear course to victory against all chances.

The second game was the standard IG design. TheShy lost control in the top lane while other lanes were trying to maintain their composure.

RNG were way too dominant for IG to deal with. They laid siege to every lane and IG might not put a stop to the pressure. After being choked out slowly for more than 20 minutes, RNG pulled the trigger and forced a teamfight once their Aphelios was fed.

IG attempted to out-play RNG in a close teamfight however were unsuccessful, causing a tied series.

In the match point game, IG’s Ning showed everybody why he won the world championship. On Volibear, he pushed each lane and had consistent existence all over on the map where his group required him.

Despite the fact that IG had deficits in the leading lane, it was not enough of a lead for RNG to be able to control the video game. The combined pressure from Ning on Volibear together with Puff on Ezreal was excessive to manage in the end, allowing IG to protect the hard-fought series win.

IG will face Triumph Five and Leading Esports next week, both leading 3 teams, for their next 2 matches. If they win both, they will make an excellent case to be in sitting at the top place of the LPL’s Summer Split standings. You can tune in to the main Riot Games LPL channel next week to capture IG live and in action and see if they can stop the dominance of TES and V5.
