V5 action up in LPL Summer season Split with success over OMG|Dot Esports
Triumph Five began the 2nd week of the 2020 LPL Summertime Split earlier today with a 2-1 win over OMG.
This was V5’s 2nd victory in a row, marking the start of an appealing split after they ended the Spring Split at the bottom of the standings without a single triumph. The team is known for having the longest losing streak in League of Legends history with 23 successive losses.
After their devastating efficiency earlier in the year, V5’s roster went through an overhaul with the finalizing of 6 brand-new players and Mole’s role swap from top lane to mid. A restore was needed, however there were still numerous questions about the potential of this new roster.
And then, V5 won their very first Summertime Split match over DMO, surprisingly came into the match against OMG as the favorites, and measured up to the expectations today by making another success.
V5’s jungler Weiwei took control of the jungle in every game, even in the one they lost against the scaling structure of OMG. Their bot lane, consisting of South Korean rookie Samd and ppgod, also revealed excellent synergy and dealt with the pressure from OMG.

On the other side, OMG didn’t show the best variation of themselves in this match. They practically lost their lead in game two but they won after a stopped working Baron effort by V5.
V5 have started the split by leading the standings and getting their first win streak in the LPL because they took part 2019. Even if the standings do not mean much at the start of the split, it shows that V5 will finally be a team to see carefully this summer.
The LPL Summertime Split schedule will enable V5 to deal with several middle-of-the-pack teams from the spring to attempt to remain at the top of the rankings prior to taking on among the leading LPL teams, RNG, on June 25.
OMG, on the other hand, have a hard match to prepare for. They’ll take on versus Edward Video Gaming on June 13, who got approved for the Spring Split playoffs.
