NRG Kia League of Legends
FLAWLESS WEEKEND ON THE RIFT
It was a STATEMENT weekend from NRG Kia League of Legends.
Using a solid start in Week 1 as the fuel we needed, NRG Kia racked up a pair of impressive victories in LCS Spring Split Week 2 against 100 Thieves and FlyQuest.
The team of Dhokla, Contractz, Palafox, FBI and Huhi took to the rift Saturday for a tilt against 100T. It was a back-and-forth affair with both teams slugging it out in the mid game, still NRG Kia maintained a solid gold lead through the end stages of the match with a 4-2 advantage on Drakes claimed. A final team ace with an incredible job by Dhokla to stay alive in the fight proved to be the difference maker, as NRG Kia claimed the win in just under 39 minutes.
Sunday’s match against FlyQuest was a tough task on paper, but NRG Kia absolutely rose to the occasion. With a resounding 24-9 advantage in kills, led by Palafox with 8 kills on his own, mixed with dominance over objectives throughout the map, NRG Kia blitzed through the opposition’s base to earn the win in a sub-30 minute match!
For his excellence on the rift in Week 2, NRG Kia’s huhi was named as the Player of the Week by the LCS! Congrats to huhi for always bringing the support diff when we need.
Next up is LCS Super Week, where NRG Kia will take on Team Liquid (Friday), Shopify Rebellion (Saturday), and Immortals Progressive (Sunday)! Be sure to tune in and support the boys ALL weekend long.
