The series, marked by intense competition and strategic manoeuvres, ultimately saw Gen.G emerge victorious in a close-fought battle.

Despite undergoing significant roster changes during the off-season, with three new players joining the team, Gen.G showcased unwavering strength throughout the spring season.

Led by stalwarts Jeong “Chovy” Ji-hoon and Kim “Peyz” Su-hwan, they began and ended the season with remarkable resilience, cementing their status as a dominant force in the league.

T1, on the other hand, faced their fair share of challenges leading up to the finals.

From enduring DDoS attacks hindering their practice sessions to grappling with setbacks, including a loss to Hanwha Life in the playoffs, T1 displayed remarkable resilience to secure their spot in the grand final.

The grand final marked the fifth consecutive matchup between Gen.G and T1, with T1 facing their fourth consecutive loss to Gen.G in the championship showdown.

The series unfolded in a nail-biting fashion, with both teams trading blows in a best-of-five format.

Gen.G seized an early advantage with a bold strategy in Game 1, leveraging the Rumble-Corki pairing to dominate team fights and secure a crucial victory.

However, T1 swiftly countered in Game 2, capitalizing on stellar performances from Ryu “Keria” Min-seok and Lee “Gumayusi” Min-hyeong to turn the tide in their favour.

Game 3 saw T1 deliver a prime display of their prowess, with all laners operating at peak efficiency to overpower their opponents.

Despite their valiant efforts, Gen.G rallied back in Game 4, with Chovy’s Aurelion Sol spearheading a dominant mid-game performance to even the score.

In the decisive Game 5, Gen.G showcased their strategic versatility, employing an Annie Support pick to secure an early advantage and capitalizing on Kim “Kiin” Gi-in’s stellar performance on K’Sante to secure a decisive victory.

With this triumph, Gen.G secured their fourth consecutive LCK title and earned the coveted first seed from the LCK heading into the 2024 Mid-Season Invitational (MSI).

The grand final also set a new record for peak viewership in the LCK, with 2.6 million viewers tuning in to witness the thrilling clash between Gen.G and T1.
