FlyQuest support has inflicted the first defeat of the year Team Dignitas as Lee “IgNar” Dong-Geun led the charge.
FlyQuest successfully got the win they wanted bullying Dignitas to their first loss of the 2020 League of Legends season.
Right from the draft, it had been a spicy run of events with a powerful team-fighting flex pic, snicking past the first set of bans for only the third time in 20 games this split. FlyQuest midlaner Tristan “PowerOfEvil” Schrage is no doubt delighted at this.
Rumble had been played twice. PoE once played it in a game in which he had three kills and 12 assists, leading to a win over CLG last week.
Speaking with Dot Esports, PowerOfEvil said that Rumble is expected to be banned, stating that there is a need to snowball early game.
Dignitas’ mid-laner Henrik “Froggen” Hansen’s Orianna and Syndra were successfully baned.
However, as the game started turning against Dignitas and he tried to push side lanes, roaming IgNar on Alistar had created the map-wide pressure that made it impossible to justify.
Speaking further, PowerOfEvil expressed delight over his support’s ability and credited him for creating tons of pressure on Dignitas’s carries. This led to Johnson “Johnsun” Nguyen’s Aphelios being zoned out during team fights, rendering him nearly useless in the match.
Speaking on the synergy he said existed from the past, he said IgNar knows how to engage and play out the team fights. He added that whenever they play alongside each other on Misfits, it helped them to be able to jump into the team fights instantly.
After having their hype train derailed after an ugly loss to Team Liquid, the win over Dignitas that has veterans on its roster will help their case as a top-tier team in the LCS.
PowerOfEvil further said the team recovered well, and they weren’t as scared as their last encounter against Liquid barely 24-hours ago.
It can be said that FlyQuest took bounced back immediately against undefeated Dignitas in arguably a more one-sided affair than their loss against Liquid.
Cloud9 is still maintaining the top spot in the LCS after remaining the only undefeated team while Dignitas and FlyQuest sit only one game back at 3-1 after two weeks.
