After a well-fought best-of-five\u00a0<em>League of Legends<\/em>\u00a0series, JD Gaming took down Top Esports 3-2 in China\u2019s LPL Spring Split playoff finals today, winning their first championship title in the league.\r\n\r\nThe two teams battled for their first championship title after they both knocked out former world champions Invictus Gaming and FunPlus Phoenix in the semifinals.\r\n\r\nThe finals\u2019 Most Valuable Player award went to JDG support\r\nZuo \u201cLvMao\u201d Ming-Hao after his extraordinary performance throughout the series on four different champions. His Bard ults in the final game of the series served as one of the core reasons JDG managed to win several team fights and end the series with a win.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/twitter.com\/lplenglish\/status\/1256588573987475457\r\n\r\nThe series was a back-and-forth display of skill between the top talents of China. JDG opened up the series with a win but lost the next two games in a row. And although TES were heavily predicted to win an easy 3-1, JDG evened out the series to bring it to a game five.\r\n\r\nThe fifth game was close, but one crucial teamfight in the mid-game allowed JDG to secure a gold lead and better item advantages for the next skirmish.\r\n\r\nWith the Ocean Dragon up for grabs, both teams grouped with eyes on the objective. But JDG\u2019s support LvMao landed a well-placed Bard ultimate to lock down two members of TES, which allowed JDG to engage on the other three players and win the teamfight.\r\n\r\nJDG\u2019s offseason acquisitions have worked out well after a poor showing last year, where they finished eighth in the Spring Split and 10th in the Summer Split. The organization acquired Korean ADC Lee \u201cLoKeN\u201d Dong-wook after former world champion Gu \u201cimp\u201d Seung-bin left the team. With their new ADC, they quickly found synergy and stomped bottom-tier teams, while also putting up good fights against top-tier squads.\r\n\r\nWhile the first games of the season were suboptimal and JDG lost a couple of series with their substitute top laner, they came back once main top laner Zhang \u201cZoom\u201d Xing-Ran returned to the roster.\r\n\r\nThis year\u2019s LPL was more competitive than ever with former world champions Invictus Gaming and FunPlus Phoenix failing to reach the LPL Playoff finals. The LPL\u2019s\u00a0<em>League of Legends\u00a0<\/em>infrastructure and endless pool of motivated rookie talents seems to have come to fruition, demonstrated by the recent LPL dominance on the international scene.\r\n\r\nWith this year\u2019s Mid-Season Invitational canceled,\u00a0<em>League\u00a0<\/em>fans will have to wait until the World Championship to see how will the top LPL teams perform on the international stage this year.
