A few hours ago, the opening match of MSI 2022 officially took place with the confrontation between T1 and Saigon Buffalo. In the first match at an international tournament after a long absence, VCS faced the most difficult challenge. However, many viewers still expect a surprise from “Buffalo Buffaloes” when VCS teams are always famous for their dedicated and passionate play.
And the fact that the match did not disappoint the audience. Although it is rated weaker, SGB does not “stand still and suffer the battle”. The young “buffalo” tried their best, even making T1’s talented bot pair Gumayusi – Keria “sweat”. But with the bravery and talents of each member being superior, T1 regained the game and then gradually snowballed, destroying all efforts of SGB.
Before the performance, it can be said that it exceeded SGB’s expectations when facing a “hard” opponent, T1, the VCS representative received a lot of praise from the international LoL community. On many social media forums, from bloggers, KOLs to the audience, SGB has brought many surprises. And there is an opinion that, if SGB top 2 VCS Spring 2022 has played so well, if it is GAM Esports, it will be even stronger.
After watching this game and realizing this is only the top 2 VCS, I think GAM can beat T1
It’s understandable why so many of T1’s bans are aimed at Taki
VCS is back to prove they’re a very interesting region
Tools for SGB to make the game fun
Good performance from SGB. Fight with the top 1 team in this tournament, but they don’t fight to the death and always want teamfights
Also in the post-match interview, Faker admitted that the team’s bot pair did not perform well. This is also the match where Gumayusi – Keria was really exploited. If it wasn’t for Oner covering the whole map so well, SGB might have had a chance to crush T1’s bot pair. Faker said: “I’ve heard the teams in VCS play very passionately and I also try to play carefully. But the bot pair really didn’t play well.”
Faker admits that the Gumayusi – Keria bot pair made a mistake
With what has been shown before T1, VCS audience can completely believe in the achievement of “Buffalo” at this MSI 2022. However, the team also needs to improve each game to avoid repeating the same mistakes as in the match against T1.
As for Faker and his teammates, they have proved their bravery, talent as well as being the best candidate for the MSI 2022 championship. But if the opponents are names that can be considered equal. , like Royal Never Give Up, surely if T1 plays like the match against SGB, it will face many difficulties, even a very bad scenario.
