DragonX won another series against Gen.G earlier in the first week of the 2020 LCK Summer Split.

This is the fourth matchup DRX have won against Gen.G this season, with only one loss in the Mid-Season Cup’s tiebreaker match last month.

Despite high expectations, DRX didn’t show any signs of feeling the pressure in this League of Legends series. They rolled through the first game and kept smiling even after losing the second game. They remained focused in the last game and grabbed the 2-1 series victory.

Support Keria had great performances once again and mid laner Chovy won the MVP title in both games that DRX won. All of DRX’s players looked particularly decisive in the first game of the series, though.

On the other side of the Rift, Gen.G showed great versatility in this match by taking both scaling and early compositions depending on the game. Top laner Rascal picked Malphite to counter Doran’s Wukong in the second game, which proved to be successful both in the lane and in teamfights. Life’s Braum executed deadly combos with his teammates’ ultimates and Gen.G punished every mistake from DRX, which led to a game two victory.

Gen.G started this Summer Split with a tough loss, but they’ll try to turn things around in their upcoming match against KT Rolster on Sunday, June 21.

DRX, on the other hand, look stronger than ever after their victory over defending champions T1 in their first match earlier this week.

“We took two wins in a row by taking down the strongest teams, T1 and Gen.G, so we have a really high confidence right now. I’m so proud of ourselves,” Chovy said in the post-match interview.

DRX looked great so far this season, achieving decisive win against former top tier teams which reached the LCK finals and the World Championship. If they can keep up their performance, Deft might go back to the World Championship finally from which he has been missing for the past years.

Gen.G on the other hand looked quite shaky and should focus on fixing their issues if they want to contest DragonX and T1 and the emerging Team Dynamic rookies. Dynamics caught the attention of League fans thanks to their successful performance in Challengers Korea. They recently announced a partnership with South Korean food brand Nongshim to help them get to the next level. Going forward they seem to be one of the teams which will challenge the veterans of LCK. While T1 (former SKT) maintained a monopoly on LCK wins in the past, it’s great to see someone challenging them now over it since the veteran seem to have a playstyle which is already known by T1.
