With the defeat G2 Esports in the tie-break match, Suning Officially got first place in Group A. SofM and teammates are likely to avoid extremely strong teams in the remaining groups such as Top Epsorts, DAMWON Gaming and have a chance to go deeper at this Worlds 2020. Let’s take a closer look at Suning’s decisive teamfight to see how brilliant they are in their teamfighting pick.
Suning has won first place in Group A very convincingly
With G2 Esports, they chose a lineup that was basically divided into two distinct classes, with Sion and Sett on the front line tasked with resisting and shielding dangerous skills. The backline consists of Syndra and Senna, two generals possessing extremely good mutual protection. Jankos’ Lillia will play the role of flexible movement between the two lines to support depending on the situation.
The G2 Esports members did well in this 41-minute fight, when they defeated Angel, SwordArt and took Suning’s mid lane two later. At this point, chances are somewhat inclined to G2 when Perkz’s Senna is too strong with 140 souls, 775 range. Many SofM fans were really sweating at that time.
G2 Esports roster wins thanks to Wunder and Mikyx’s good control and resistance, while Caps and Perkz can defend each other and pay constant damage.
However, G2 Esports’ roster is only really maximizing their effectiveness when they hold the perfect position, both front and back. Moreover, they must fight in an open place like mid lane for Syndra and Senna to take advantage of their long range. If pressed into a narrow angle, Senna’s range advantage is completely lost, Suning seemed to realize this and they did the late-game fights in a different position from the mid lane combat before.
However, to do this, Suning also needs the help of G2 Esports to get a perfect fight at the end of the game. As mentioned above, after G2 Esports got 2 Suning’s mid turrets, they had two options, one to force the fight in Baron and the other to put pressure on the Fire Dragon Spirit.
G2 Esports has chosen to put pressure on the Fire Dragon Soul by … waiting in the middle of the street on the right towards Dragon Cave. Of course, at the 43rd minute, Suning did not fall into G2 Esports’ trap, they ran straight to Baron and proceeded to eat this target extremely quickly. Even G2 Esports is so wrong that it can catch the opponent when I have no vision at Baron to know the direction of the enemy’s movement.
G2 waited a long time in the mid lane bush trying to “bait” Suning but failed
G2’s mistake is that they intend to catch a Dragon’s Spirit while the fourth Fire Dragon has not yet appeared, when Suning defeats Baron, it takes 7 seconds to be born. When Suning has Baron G2 Esports has only one option: to eat the fourth Fire Dragon. It is true that they have achieved this target, but Angel moves too well when dodging the wave, not being detected by G2’s vision before moving to the river area to create a fighting pressure.
Mikyx still does the job of a Support Sett that is to find a way to block the opponent’s path to the Dragon cave. He stood for a long time above the Dragon cave to control possible movements such as from the base, from the mid lane towards his teammates. Mikyx was not wrong, but in this situation, Suning forced the fight at a very precise time, the invisible guy was separated from his teammates.
Angel in this situation waited for a while in the bushes on the left of the mid lane before moving to the Dragon cave to avoid the view of G2 Esports.
When Angel was discovered into the Telescope in G2’s moving direction, they discovered that Suning intended to force the fight but it was too late.
Back to Angel, when he was revealed and G2 discovered Suning’s intentions to attack, everything was too late, Huanfeng’s Great Ice Shot rushed in, SofM blocked and the other was filled with Bin. Pushed by Gunpowder Barrel. Fights in tight spaces were not a strong point for Senna, Perkz and Caps were completely blown away by Bin in that situation.
This tie-break victory can be said to have shown that Suning is a team that reads the situation and finds the opponent’s loopholes quite well. They realized that if you let Perkz’s Senna move freely and attack from long range in large space, it would be very difficult to win. Suning forced G2 Esports to fall into a narrow space to win. Hopefully this acumen of SofM and his teammates will continue to be promoted in the upcoming intense matches of the knockout rounds.
