LoL: Worlds 2020 | LGD Gaming vs Gen.G Recap

LGD and Gen.G fought to get closer to the first seed in Group C.


LGD Gaming vs Gen.G

The Gen.G LoL team on the Worlds 2020 stage ahead of their game against LGD with their game draft below

With FNC picking up the win, the pressure was on LGD and Gen.G to win to keep up the pressure on the European side as they moved into the first spot in the group. Gen.G did pick up the win against LGD when the teams met in the first round-robin. But LGD was able to beat both FNC and TSM, so they’ll be hoping for an upset against the LCK side. LGD made a 2v1 dive on the Gen.G top lane but Peanut overextended and was punished under the tower as Gen.G secured First Blood. Clid and Rascal then continued to punish the misplay as they dove the LGD top lane tower for another kill. LGD do get themselves a kill onto Peanut eventually, as they finally pick up a kill.

Gen.G snowballing through the Rift

Gen.G continued to snowball the early lead. They accumulated a 2k lead at the eight-minute mark as LGD forced a lane swap to try and get back into the match. With the game slowing, Gen.G moved to 3k ahead as they kept up the global map pressure after picking up the first tower. LGD finally managed to get something on the board after losing two members in the mid lane, they picked up three kills for themselves and two major shutdowns go over the key members on LGD. As both teams posture for the third drake, LGD claimed it and picked up a kill for their trouble. In the extended fight, both teams go three-for-three as LGD keep themselves alive in the game. Gen.G won a fight before Baron, claiming two kills and picking up a free Baron Buff, as LGD’s hard work is undone.

First, Gen.G secured an easy bot lane inhibitor. Then they moved to the mid lane as they gained massively off the Baron Power Play. LGD makes a game-saving attempt as they get an early kill on Gen.G. As the fight extends they pick up three more for one in return as LGD stay alive in the game. They crucially kept their Nexus turrets alive and claimed a Baron Buff for themselves as they closed the gold lead down to 1.5k. As Gen.G claimed the Soul point LGD made a crazy play through the mid lane and took down all the Nexus towers of Gen.G. Gen.G are able to defend, however as they counter-attack and take down the LGD base to secure the victory and go 3-1.

  • Time: 34:17
  • Kills: 16-19
  • Turrets: 7-11
