Wild Rift SEA Icon Series: Preseason Malaysia: As it happened
Just like in Vietnam, players were not playing in the same place and in front of crowd due to the Covid-19 situations. But such situations never seemed to bother the players at all. They still made a brilliant display in spite of all these hurdles. The finals consisted of a 5 game series. Geek Fam displayed an impressive reverse sweep in their performance which showcased their superiority over BJD.
Although Berjaya Dragons (BJD) ended up being the losers, they were not a team to be beaten so easily. Despite losing 3 games in the finals, BJD showed up and displayed a nerve-wracking performance against Geek Fam. Even with their weird picks like Mid Darius and Singed, BJD never seemed like a team that could lose the finals. Unfortunately, despite their tough fightback, they lost it out as Geek Fam was overall a better team in the finals.
Geek Fam, the champions were consistent throughout all the stages of the tournament. They showed their true potential on the first day itself. Also, they are the only team that made Yasuo work in competitive play so far. This move is being considered very much commendable with respect to their gameplay.
All the games were streamed on Facebook and Youtube for the Wild Rift fans to watch around the world. The Wild Rift SEA Icon Series: Preseason Malaysia all-in-all featured a fresh take to the meta compared to Vietnam’s, such as new picks like Dr. Mundo jungle as well as Singed and Ahri making an appearance for various teams in the games.
