As LPL is being led by Victory Five and Weibo Gaming, Rookie brings down V5’s opponents one by one. This week, V5 defeated LGD Gaming, EDward Gaming and LNG Esports, showing a strong presence. Their good form was followed by Weibo Gaming’s 2-0 week, and they share the first place together.
While V5 and Weibo shared the first place, the playoff race has also stirred up. JDG and Rare Atom managed to take a leap forward, finding a better place and leaving FPX and IG behind. Team WE is yet to find their second win, and although they have two victories, LGD and ThunderTalk are no different. Get the details of the sixth week below.
LPL 2022 Spring Week 6 recap
The sixth week started with a Victory Five win over LGD. Although it was 2-1, the third game was a clear stomp from V5 with a 25-2 score. Following that, Top Esports found a much-needed 2-1 win against FPX, catching up with the top six and leaving FPX behind. Rare Atom showed an amazing performance against RNG with two convincing victories, and Invictus Gaming completed the comeback against JD Gaming later on the second day.
During the third day of the week, after Ultra Prime defeated OMG, Victory Five and EDward Gaming clashed. While both of these teams are championship contenders, EDG wasn’t able to show their strength against V5, losing the series 2-0 while getting stomped both games. Bilibili defeated Team WE the following day and it was time for Weibo and LNG to fight. After a highly exciting series, Weibo managed to keep their streak going and defeated the Tarzan - Doinb duo 2-1.
LGD defeated ThunderTalk 2-1, JD Gaming defeated Anyone’s Legends 2-1 and Rare Atom swept FunPlus Phoenix 2-0 on the fifth day of the week. The following day, Ultra Prime bested Team WE, finishing the week 2-0, Weibo took the 2-1 win against OMG, and EDward Gaming disappointed their fans once again by losing the last series of the day against Top Esports. The most disappointing part was that in the third game of the series, EDG was ahead and managed to throw it.
The last day saw TT take their second week by upsetting FPX and Bilibili having a hard time against JDG, although the latter secured the victory. In the last game of the week, Victory Five took yet another important victory against LNG Esports. The series was a close one and you could probably put the blame on Tarzan’s 1-8-8 and 2-6-7 Xin Zhao performances.
