RNG make quick work of LGD Gaming, picks up second win of 2021 LPL Summer Split

Royal Never Give Up picked up their second win of the 2021 LPL Summer Split after a dominant 2-0 win over LGD Gaming.

While LGD had a formidable split so far and were favored going into this series, RNG stepped up after their latest slump and took their opponents down. The solo laners of RNG had a strong showing with both of them picking up the MVP votes. Xiaohu picked up the first after a dominant Viego performance, finishing the game with a 8/2/6 KDA after destroying his opponents in teamfights with his passive. Cryin played LeBlanc in the second game to earn his MVP, constantly juking his opponents and baiting them into unfavorable trades.

In the first game of the series, both teams played passively during the laning phase. While LGD was able to build a small gold lead via superior farming, RNG picked up objectives to equalize. The Rift Heralds and early drakes were crucial in making RNG unstoppable once teamfights began. The team was in control for most of the match and had a good priority on the neutral objectives, zoning out their opponents a minute before they’d spawn to give themselves enough room to secure them. Once RNG was able to secure the Ocean Dragon Soul, LGD crumbled as they had no answers to the powerful neutral buff. Even with Grievous Wounds items, they weren’t able to penetrate the healing from the dragon soul, falling to the 2021 MSI champions in the first match.

In the second match, RNG picked up a similar dive-heavy composition that helped them win the first match of the series. This time, LGD was more proactive early on and won a couple of skirmishes, building a gold lead of up to 3,000 gold. Once RNG started grouping up, however, they nullified the impact of their opponent’s gold lead by having the superior teamfight composition. Cryin on LeBlanc was juking left and right while his teammates took care of LGD’s frontline. After picking up the Ocean Dragon Soul once again, RNG made quick work of LGD and closed out the series 2-0.
