DWG KIA has enrolled in the LCK the Korean League of Legends, one of the toughest leagues in the world. In 2020 DWG didn’t start very well and finished fourth at the LCK Spring 2021. But last year that position was enough to qualify for the Mid-Season Invitational.
Even them DAMWON closes in 5th place without too much impact. From that moment, however, things have changed. In the LCK Summer Split DWG absolutely dominated the tournament losing just two games to DRX and Gen G in the first round robin.

In the LEC Summer 2020 things went better as they even finished second in the group with 12 wins and 6 defeats but in the playoffs they were immediately eliminated by Rogue with a clear 3-0.
The team has changed in 2021, new players have arrived and the changes have been positive. In LEC Spring 2021 MAD Lions finished in third place with 10 wins and 8 losses, but it is in the playoffs that the team exalted by going to win the LEC Spring 2021 by beating Rogue in the final 3-2 and thus obtaining the qualification for the Mid-season Invitational.

They can’t afford distractions in this game. MAD Lions in the second round defeated Royal Never Give UP but lost to DWG. Who will win this match? In our opinion, DWG KIA is the favorite and should win this match.
