Doinb claims LNG Esports could make it to the Worlds quarterfinals “for free”

LNG Esports was one map away from starring in an epic qualification to World’s. Despite not starting as the favorite for it, the Chinese organization managed to come back from the summer season and finish fourth in the League of Legends Pro League (LPL). In one week, LNG played five best-of-five matches to reach that position, in addition to playing another two in the Regional Tournament to fight for a place in the World Cup until the last moment. To Kim Tae-sang”Doinb“, if he had qualified, his team could have reached the quarterfinals for “free”.

In a live broadcast, Doinb showed why he doesn’t mince words. The LNG Esports media outlet dared to predict what his team’s journey would have been like in World’s in case of qualifying. «If we had come to the World Cup this year during a pre-match interview, regardless of who was interviewing me, to the question “do you have confidence in these World’s?» he would have answered: “If we are not in the same group as Gen.G, it is a free trip to the quarterfinals”«, has expressed the world champion.

For Doinb and the Chinese teams, the great rival to take into account is the champion of the League of Legends Championship Korea (LCK). The South Korean organization won its first LCK by beating T1 3-0 in the grand final after a 17-1 loss in the regular phase. Beyond having the MVP of the competition, Park Jae-hyuk «Ruler«, all the players of the entity except for Choi Hyeon-joon «Doran» were part of the ideal quintet of the league.

Nevertheless, LNG Esports was left at the gates of World’s after losing 3-2 against Royal Never Give Up in the Regional Tournament. LNG had to get past Victory Five to stay alive in the fight until the last moment. Instead, RNG lost to EDward Gaming in the same tournament and got a second chance against Doinb’s team. Had LNG won, Royal would have been the first ever champion of a Mid-Season Invitational (MSI) who misses the World Cup the same year he wins the MSI.

The newspaper library plays a trick on Doinb

Despite being confident, precisely the World’s of 2021 were not good for either Doinb or LNG Esports. The medium fell in the group stage with FunPlus Phoenix with a record of two wins and four losses. Although he started as the favorite not only in the group, but also in the tournament, DWG KIA and Cloud9 ended up beating the LPL runner-up. On the other hand, LNG Esports also did not have an experience to remember in its first World Cup. After mastering the play-inthe Chinese representative was part of the only quadruple tie in the history of World’s. A loss against MAD Lions in the playoff game prevented the organization from advancing to the quarterfinals. Gen.G was the top seed after beating Team Liquid and beating the Lions in the second tiebreaker match.
