KT Rolster made quick work of Jin Air Green Wings in a relatively easy 2-0 victory on Tuesday in Seoul, South Korea to open up Week 3 of League of Legends Champions Korea.
Jin Air (3-2, 7-5 match record) had a clear strategy in place for Game 1 with its late-game focused team composition, but it was given no chance at all of getting to that stage of the contest. Things started off well enough for the Green Wings, picking up first blood for an early lead. KT (4-1, 8-4 match record) pushed right back with two kills in the bottom lane that led to the first turret and never looked back. KT's teamfighting was impeccable, leaving Jin Air without any way to get back into the game. KT jungler Go "Score" Dong-bin's Graves in particular was strong early on, going 3/0/2 in the first 10 minutes to get the KT snowball rolling. On top of that, top laner Song "Smeb" Kyung-ho's Renekton was a monster in every late-game teamfight on his way to a 7/2/5 KDA (kills/deaths/assists) that helped his team pick up the 29-minute win.
Jin Air tried to get an edge in the second game with the Xayah/Rakan combo for its bottom lane duo of Park "Teddy" Jin-sung and No "SnowFlower" Hoei-jong, and while the duo is normally very strong when paired together, it didn't work out in this matchup. The two only picked up one kill and two assists between them as KT once again dominated the game. Jin Air got another first blood that amounted to nothing as KT simply decided to focus on objectives rather than skirmishing for this game. Even before KT picked up the Baron in the late game, it had already razed eight towers to the two of Jin Air to amass a 7,000-gold lead. Once the Baron was secured, KT took one last fight 4-for-0 to put the finishing touches on the quick 2-0 victory with the 36-minute win.
KT will look to hand Samsung Galaxy its first loss when the two face-off on Thursday at 7 a.m. ET, while Jin Air hopes to get back on track with a contest against bbq Olivers this Friday at 7 a.m. ET.
