DAMWON Gaming (DWG) may not be a household name in the League of Legends pro scene yet, but the team is steadily becoming a dominant force in the LoL Challengers Korea (LCK) tournament.
In DWG’s match against KT Rolster, Jang “Nuguri” Ha-gwon charged toward the enemy team to halt their dragon rush. Butting heads with Park “TusiN” Jong-ik, Nuguri started to lose health from KT’s instant barrage of skills and auto-attacks. But with the rest of DWG pushing the offense, TusiN was taken out by Leona’s Solar Flare.
With the clash slowly turning to DWG’s favor, Nuguri called upon the Forge God and initially hit four KT members. Using another Forge God hit, Nuguri knocked out two more opponents and prevented their escape.
Seeing this opportunity, Heo “Showmaker” Su instantly deleted Kim “BonO” Gi-beom as he came down from the knock-up.
As Nuguri and a few others were taking down Kim “SoHwan” Jun-yeong, Sin “Nuclear” Jeong-hyeon closed in on Lee “Kuro” Seo-haeng. Nuclear propelled himself with a blast cone, then popped his heal skill for a bit more movement speed before shooting down the Lucian with a simple auto-attack.
DWG went on to win the match against KT Rolster with a 2-0 standing, putting themselves in fifth place of the leaderboard. KT Rolster is currently the lowest-ranked team in the LCK with a 0-5 record.
