Evil Geniuses win battle of underperformers in cagey affair against Team Liquid

Evil Geniuses punished Team Liquid’s inability to execute the very specific win condition they created for themselves in a drawn-out, but relatively mistake-free win in the 2020 League of Legends Spring Split today.

Liquid jungler Mads “Broxah” Brock-Pedersen picked up his first kill in the LCS as Elise but was otherwise unable to get back into game and create pressure. On the other side of the jungle, EG’s Dennis “Svenskeren” Johnsen’s picked Sejuani, and the much-better scaling on the champion allowed his team to win the match.

The Sejuani pick complimented a very beefy set of tanks in Ornn and Braum for EG. When combined with two mechanically-sound players in Bae “Bang” Jun-sik and Daniele “Jiizuke” di Mauro on mobile champions like Ezreal and Zoe, respectively, it was just up to EG to execute that siege composition, which they did to perfection. Bang free-fired damage all game from the backline and Jiizuke Portal Jumped to his heart’s content to make the match difficult for Liquid. There were simply no gaps in EG’s armor for Liquid to punish.

“We got pretty much what we wanted [in draft], and the game was pretty easy because of it,” top laner Colin “Kumo” Zhao told Dot Esports.
