Team WE demolished LGD Gaming on Thursday to close out Week 6, Day 1 of the League of Legends Pro League in Shanghai.
Team WE (6-2, 13-6 match record) came out swinging in Game 1 as top laner Ke "957" Chang-Yu's Gragas secured first blood with help from jungler Xiang "Condi" Ren-Jie's Rengar just three minutes in. Condi snowballed hard off of the early lead as Team WE roamed around the map and methodically dismantled LGD throughout the early- and mid-games. Condi got several assassinations throughout the game, giving Team WE the space they needed to smash through LGD's towers.
LGD (2-7, 7-14) looked lost in the late game as WE killed three people to secure Baron, and LGD looked especially helpless against Condi, who dealt a game-high 21,500 damage while earning a flawless 12/0/5 KDA (kills/deaths/assists) for 85 percent kill participation and game MVP honors. Cruising through LGD's base, Team WE took an easy 28-minute win.
It took longer for WE to pop off in Game 2, but when it did, the move was emphatic. WE secured an early Infernal Drake before turning a LGD bot lane dive into a 4-for-1 teamfight win around the 10-minute mark. Team WE AD carry Jin "Mystic" Seong-jun secured three kills on Jhin during the dive, snowballing hard as WE's high-damage composition took over the map.
Following Game 1's script for the mid game, WE took skirmish wins as Condi's Graves picked up solo kills to stay ahead the entire series. After securing a Baron and picking up three more kills at 26 minutes, Team WE completed the decimation of LGD Gaming with a 29-minute win.
LGD Gaming look to recover with a series against Vici Gaming on Saturday at 1 a.m ET, while Team WE gear up for a clash of LPL leaders as they face Royal Never Give Up on Saturday at 4 a.m ET.
