RNG beat Top Esports by 3-2 to claim the LPL Spring 2022 title – The best-of-5 match series between Royal Never Give Up (RNG) and Top Esport(TES) in the Grand Finals of LPL Spring 2022 was quite thrilling. Both these teams gave their all as every match series crossed the 30-minute time limit. RNG had also won last year’s LPL Spring title and even the Mid-Season Invitational (MSI) 2021. With this win, they will have a chance to defend their MSI title this year.
Top Esports also had a miraculous run in the Playoffs, beating top teams like Victory Five and RNG Esports. But they were not able to conquer RNG in the Playoffs. TES lost to RNG at both the Upper Bracket Finals and the Grand Finals of LPL Spring 2022.
One of the key players who shined during this match series was Xiaohu. The longest-standing player of RNG had a phenomenal performance on his Vex pick. Although RNG was not at the top of the table during the Group Stage, their Playoffs performance has silenced their critics. LPL is the toughest and longest-running regional league. It has the maximum number of teams participating and also runs the longest during each Split. Thus winning the LPL Spring 2022 cements RNG’s spot as one of the best League of Legends esports teams in the world.
In the first two matches, TES drafted the same draft composition against RNG. But this choice did not work as RNG won both of these games due to their better scaling champions. TES then reworked their strategy and were able to come on top against RNG in the 3rd and 4th matches. In the final 5th match, RNG was able to out draft TES and even perform splendidly on their champion picks.
With this win, RNG has a chance to defend their MSI title this year. They will be competing against other qualified top teams T1 and G2 Esports. RNG will participate remotely at MSI to keep their players safe against the rising COVID cases across both China and Europe.
