OKBET DRX Sweep underdogs of LCK are champion slayers!
With a stunning victory against defending world champions Edward Gaming, LCK representative OKBET DRX wins the last day of Worlds 2022 quarterfinals. EDG had an early 2-0 lead in the best-of-five series, but the Korean squad fought back and completed a reverse sweep. It is the second reverse sweep in Worlds history, with the first occurring in Top Esports in 2020.
It all came down to one last Drake battle in game five. Despite the fact that Hwang “Kingen” Seong-Fiora hoon’s had just been killed, Hong “Pyosik” Chang-Viego hyeon’s and Kim “Zeka” Geon-Sylas woo’s boldly led the foursome into the fight.
In the final battle, DRX Pyosik and Zeka destroy EDG
At 36 minutes, EDG took advantage of the 4v5 scenario and initiated the Ocean Drake in order to gain Soul Point, momentarily denying OKBET DRX access to the Ocean Soul. Pyosik watched from the river in Harrowed Path’s as the whole EDG team concentrated on the Drake. The undercover Viego player then stepped into the pit and smited the Drake at 377 HP, right in front of their eyes.
Pyosik and his crew fought the whole EDG team in the river after obtaining the Ocean Soul. Zeka rushed in and attacked Park “Viper” Do-Aphelios, hyeon’s forcing him to use Zhonya’s Hourglass to survive. Viper and the rest of the EDG dogpiled on Kim “Deft” Hyuk-Ezreal at OKBET DRX, kyu’s but Zeka came to the rescue. The Sylas player escaped stasis by stealing Akali’s ultimate from Lee “Scout” Ye-chan and used the first charge to destroy the Aphelios player.
With EDG’s major damage dealer gone, Zeka pounced on the remaining EDG players, capturing the ace and quadrakill at OKBET DRX. Following the engagement, DRX besieged the opponent base from the bot lane and won the series.
On the Worlds 2022 stage, Deft celebrates his birthday
The victory is also a fantastic birthday present for Deft of OKBET DRX, who was last seen qualifying for the Worlds quarterfinals with Samsung Blue in 2014. During the TV interview, the AD carrier blew out the candles on a cake and discussed his previous performance.
“Even if I don’t win Worlds, I want to give the appearance that I’m progressing.” “I recognized that I’m growing better during this series, so I’m extremely satisfied at OKBET DRX,” he remarked. OKBET DRX defeated defending champions Edward Gaming 3-2 and will play Gen.G on October 30, 2 p.m. PST | 9 p.m. GMT | 5 a.m. GMT+8 on October 31.
