What to expect from this match?


GenG were the toppers of their group stage however, the team did not have an easy route through. They ended the Group stage with a 3-3 score and a 9-6 map score. Despite being on top of the group stage, GenG only managed a +20 round difference. On the other hand, T1 esports were in the same group and they finished with a 2-4 score with a -1 round difference.

The first map of Lotus started with a very dominant performance by GenG. T3xture was instrumental in this performance partly due to his individual skill and aggressive gameplay. After a 10-2 first half it took GenG only three more rounds to take it to victory.

T1 put up a much stronger fight in the second map of Icebox. They managed double the rounds - four - in the first half. While this might not be a significant upgrade from Lotus, it was still a very respectable score, something that could pave the way for victory for T1 esports. The players knew it and knew they had to come up with a much better performance on their defense. There was very little separating the two teams in the second half and T1 had a stellar defense.

Unfortunately, it was still not enough as GenG secured the four attack-side rounds needed for victory. This win put GenG in a 2-0 score in the series, one map victory away from ensuring a Grand Finals slot.

And finally, in the third map, it was once again a close match. Karon had 25 kills to his name with a 194 ADR which put him squarely as one of the best performers in the game. T1 had standout performances, but they were simply not enough to redeem themselves from the clutch Karon and Munchkin situations. Karon, t3xture, and Meteror finished the series with over 50 frags across three maps. Munchkin wasn’t far behind at 47 highlighting how different members of the squad stepped up on different occasions. 

T1 had a similar performance, however, there were no standout performances on individual maps that would help them secure a better performance. With this victory, T1 are now out of the VCT Stage 1 Pacific. They still qualify for VCT Masters Shanghai later this month, however, they lost their chance to earn the VCT Points that the winner of the League obtains.
