Invictus Gaming have been declared winners of the 2018 League of Legends World Championship, beating fellow finalists Fnatic 3-0 in emphatic fashion.
On their path to glory, Invictus swept through the group stages (despite dropping points to Fnatic) and went on the defeat Korean first seed kt Rolster, before blitzing their way past G2 Esports in the semi-finals. Particular highlights of the tournament came from the likes of Song “Rookie” Eui-jin, though the MVP awarded was gifted to Gao “Ning” Zhen-Ning, and rightfully so.
Fnatic had previously benefited from being able to sustain during longer games, punishing teams for the slightest mistakes and using their team-based prowess to tighten their grip in each match. Unfortunately for the Europeans, Invictus Gaming were in no mood to give Fnatic any such advantage, and the runners-up found themselves lagging behind in both gold and kills in the early stages.
MVP Ning put on a stellar performance, leaving Fnatic’s jungler Mads “Broxah” Brock-Pedersen without any way to find an opening throughout. There was a resurgence from the losing team in Game 3, but ultimately Invictus were too much for them and rightfully went on to lift the Summoner’s cup at the end of it all in front of a huge crowd at the Munhak Stadium, South Korea.
