Wild Rift SEA Icon Series: Preseason Taiwan Finals: As it happened
Unlike the other previous regions, Taiwan’s finals were a BO7 (Best-of-7) match. It took 6 games before FW was able to take out ONE Team. Also, their most picked champions were Corki, Braum, Lee Sin, Gragas, and Jarvan IV which is very different compared to the other regions. This could say how the region loves champions that can contribute some form of CC or Crowd Control like knock-ups and stuns.
So far, FW‘s championship run is the most dominant on the whole tournament, only losing 2 times on the Finals against ONE Team the whole tournament. This clearly shows how strong this team is and how other regions should watch out and prepare for them.
FW’s key to victory besides their consistency is no other than Bruce. He had an amazing stat line and only died 4 times on the Finals despite having an average Kill Participation or KP of a whopping 87.65% on their 4 wins. Not only that, but he also had consistent high Damage Percentage and Gold Difference at the 10-minute mark or GD@10, showing his superiority over ONE Team’s mid laner. Not to forget, Bruce also played Katarina and played exceptionally good at it as well, the man’s definitely a legend!
The games were streamed on Facebook, Youtube, and Twitch for those who want to watch the replay of the games. Also stay tuned for the upcoming continuation of the tournament in other regions like the Philippines, Indonesia, and Singapore!
