DWG KIA and KT Rolster will lock horns on Thursday, August 18, in the first round of League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) 2022 Summer Playoffs.

It’s hard not to be impressed with what KT Rolster have achieved this season, but everything is relative. Although they improved upon their spring showing (7-11) by ending the summer split with a 10-8 record, it feels like KT are one of the most overhyped teams in the league.

Rolster played well across the last few weeks of the regular season, and they even took a map from Gen.G (1-2) on Saturday. Nevertheless, to say they stand a chance against DWG KIA in a best-of-five series is a bit too optimistic.

DWG KIA have managed the same record this split (10-8) as KT Rolster and have won just half of their last six outings – like KT – but this team has a significantly higher ceiling. It’s also important to note that Heo “ShowMaker” Su caught COVID at the start of August, which explains why DWG have struggled a bit across the last couple of weeks.

But regardless of how equally matched the teams may look on paper, this is DWG KIA’s game to lose. ShowMaker and Kim “Canyon” Geon-bu are one of the best mid-jungle duos in the world, and with the meta shifting back to Herald control, it is tough to find a better trio than ShowMaker, Canyon, and Jang “Nuguri” Ha-gwon running around the top side.

A moneyline bet on DWG KIA is not a bad choice, but we are after a higher payout, so we’ll trust the former world champions to take down KT Rolster with at least two maps to spare.
