While it was T1 that emerged victorious in the LCK Spring playoffs, claiming their eighth LCK title, there were plenty of top plays throughout the playoffs.
Here’s a look back at the top five.
5. KT Rolster turn the tables on Damwon Gaming
KT Rolster faced an early exit in the first Playoff series, but their star ADC Kim “Aiming” Ha-ram was able to go down guns blazing.
In this highlight play, Aiming was just a few seconds late in helping Park “TusiN” Jong-ik escape a three-man gank. Now facing a 1v3 disadvantage, the Aphelios player loaded his guns and perfectly kited all three members in the jungle. Aiming snagged a massive double-kill while Kim “Canyon” Geon-bu barely escaped with just a sliver of life left.
4. ShowMaker guns down KT Rolster
Damwon eventually got their revenge on KT with a beautiful play by Heo “ShowMaker” Su. In their third and final game, KT Rolster committed to a Baron rush with DWG right on their backs. KT was able to fake out the attempt with a quick kill on Cho “BeryL” Geon-hee.
Even with a man down, Damwon had the advantage with TusiN already using his Cosmic Radiance, leaving KT with no substantial defense. As the rest of DWG went into control KT’s retreat, ShowMaker went all-in with a Valkyrie into the top jungle and a quickfire Missile Barrage that granted him an instant triple-kill. The DWG midlaner even add one more kill to his streak by nuking the low-health Kim “SoHwan” Jun-yeong.
3. DragonX win the 4v5
Despite facing a 4v5 disadvantage, DragonX’s offensive capabilities were enough to blow Damwon out of the Baron pit in the quarterfinal match.
With Jeong “Chovy” Ji-hoon getting burst down by ShowMaker in an early overextend, Damwon went straight for the Baron. With the Baron engagement, the undermanned DRX quickly dived into the pit with Ryu “Keria” Min-seok taking the frontline.
DWG did their best to fight off the interruption with a perfect Bullet Time by Jang “Ghost’ Yong-jun, but Keria soon canceled it with a three-man Depth Charge. With a flurry of crowd-control going into the pit, Choi “Doran” Hyeon-joon unleashed Irelia’s blade and chased DWG out of the pit, ending with a triple-kill.
2. Teddy gets a game-winning quadra kill
In the semifinal, with DRX on their last breath, T1 initiated one more clash that would secure the series. Park “Teddy” Jin-seong displayed his championship-tier skills in a risky, yet rewarding dive in the bot lane.
With such a tanky frontline of Ornn, Trundle, and Braum, the Kalista player easily pierced through Kim “Deft” Hyuk-kyu and Keria from the backline. With the rest of DRX retreating to the safety of their base, Teddy immediately hopped into the frontline to deal tons of damage to two more DRX members, securing the late-game quadra-kill.
1. DragonX gets the Baron and the clean ace on T1
In the semifinal, DragonX proved once again that they have one of the best offenses in the LCK.
In this highlight play, DragonX made their way to Baron with a full team. Though Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok was able to get close to Baron, Keria pulled him back with a perfectly-timed Bone Skewer. T1 jungler Moon “Cuzz’ Woo-chan tried to flash in for Baron steal, but he ended up flat-footed in the pit, facing the full damage of Mega Inferno Bomb.
With the 4v5 advantage and the Baron buff, DRX quickly got onto T1 to end the game. Deft and Chovy double-teamed Faker while Keria transformed into a sneaky assassin with two Deaths From Below, securing the game-winning ace.
