DAMWON Gaming Win League of Legends 2020 Worlds Championship
DAMWON Gaming has brought the League of Legends worlds title back to Korea. DAMWON Gaming defeated Suning 3-1 at the LoL Worlds Championship, held in China. DAMWON has had an incredible year, winning both the LCK title and now the Worlds Championship. This is DAMWON's first ever title, and in Korea's first finals appearance in over two years, DAMWON reclaim the title in their rival China's home turf.
Kim "Canyon" Geon-bu was awarded MVP of the Finals. In four games, he played Graves twice, Evelynn, and Kindred in the final game. His performance was highlighted by his Kindred play in the game that locked their finals victory, as he was all over the map snagging kills and securing objectives. The final game wasn't even close and Canyon finished the game with eight kills and zero deaths. Canyon really showed off the power of Kindred, a champion that wasn't too popular in NA this season but certainly should've been. With each player allowed to pick their character for their team's Worlds skin, maybe Kindred will get some love from Canyon.
For the rest of the squad, Cho "BeryL" Geon-hee's Pantheon support had been a menace all of LCK summer split. Heading into the potential final game, they wanted their support player on his best champion, and Pantheon provided just that. The team's most popular player Heo "ShowMaker" Su got to play lane bullies mid the whole series, showing up on Syndra, Orianna, and Lucian and provided the priority necessary to dominate the river for vision and objectives.
DAMWON played incredibly well, and deserve to hold the title as world champions.
