Isurus is proclaimed LLA champion and will go to Worlds

‘El Tiburón’ will return to the most important League of Legends competition three years later. Isurus has been proclaimed champion of La Liga Latinoamérica (LLA) beating Estral Esports 3-2 in the grand final. The series was not decided until the last moment, when the Argentine team managed to defend their base to prevent Estral from taking the title and participating in World’s. The club has thus achieved the third title of Latin American champion in its history, thus tying with Rainbow7 and INFINITY.

Isurus came to the final wanting revenge on Estral Esports. Estral had been the main LLA force throughout the Closing. ‘El Tiburón’ finished second in the regular phase, but the desire to beat the Mexican organization increased once the playoffs arrived. The Argentinian club debuted in the knockout phase with a tight 3-2 draw against Rainbow7, but were subsequently sent down the draw by Estral after a convincing 3-1 loss.

In the lower table, Isurus beat Team Aze, champion of the Opening and representative of LLA in the last Mid-Season Invitational (M: YES). Arrived at the grand final, ‘El Tiburón’ and Estral Esports starred in a very even match that was a constant exchange. When it seemed that Estral was going to proclaim himself champion, Son Ho-gyeong “Jelly” gained enough time with Alistar to slow down the Mexican team. Together with Édgar Bracamontes «Seiya», he hindered Estral and contributed damage so that Omar Gavotto and Jesús Loya «Grell» reappeared to finish off all their rival players.

The experience and familiar faces of Isurus

With now three Latin American champion titles in its showcase, Isurus is not a club outside of international League of Legends tournaments. The appearances of the ‘Tiburón’ in this type of tournament date back to 2017 and 2019. In the seventh season the team competed in the MSI, while in the ninth they played both that tournament and the World’s after being the great dominator of LLA during the year.

The only player remaining from the 2019 roster is Seiya, one of the most popular and recognized professionals in the region. Currently, the midfielder remains the most successful individual player in all of Latin America. With three MSIs behind them (2017, 2018 and 2019), the World’s of 2022 will be the third for the Mexican. He played the first ones with Lyon Gaming and lost 0-3 against Cloud9 in the play-in in the match that decided if he would access the group stage. In 2019 the same thing happened with Isurus after losing at the same point 1-3 against Hong Kong Attitude.

Beyond the Latin American reference, Isurus has striking players for the followers of the Eastern League of Legends. Kang Geon-mo «ADD», top of the ‘Jaws’, will compete for the first time in his career in about World’s despite having an experienced career. The South Korean is recognized for being part of the now extinct MVP. After his passage through the League of Legends Championship Korea (LCK), made the switch to the League of Legends Pro League (LPL) from the hand of Bilibili Gaming, where he came fourth on summer-split of 2019. In 2021 he arrived at LLA with Team Aze.
