After winning their semi-finals the day before, the stage was set for an epic final in the $1 million tournament. The two teams, both in great form, were ready to battle in a Best-of-5 series for the championship.

After an intense series of game-changing moves and crucial eliminations, T1, South Korea’s top esports club, won a hard-fought 3-1 victory. They earned valuable points in the Esports World Cup Club Championship and took home the $400,000 first prize.

 

Immediately after their famous victory, T1’s Faker – universally regarded as the greatest League of Legends player in history – spoke of the team’s confidence heading into the contest. ‘The Michael Jordan of Esports’ said: “Teamwork was the key tonight. This was our first event here in Saudi Arabia but we adjusted and performed really well. We have a lot of faith in our skill levels – we were very confident beforehand and our strategy worked really well. It was a long journey –  but we got through it and we’re delighted to win the competition.”

When asked about the Esports World Cup and what makes the event so special, Faker – a member of T1’s five-star lineup alongside Zeus, Oner, Gumayusi, and Keria – replied: “The Esports World Cup symbolizes the growth of esports worldwide. There are so many athletes from so many countries competing here and this reflects the recent growth of our industry – it’s popular everywhere right now.
