RNG rallied again after the score reset

Due to COVID-related travel limitations, RNG is competing in this year’s MSI from its training facility in China. RNG won three games before a ping discrepancy was discovered at the event. Riot addressed the issue and mandated RNG to replay their three group stage games.

Even with a second chance, RNG’s opponents were unable to stop the LPL Champions. It was just as easy for the team to win each of the re-played games against Istanbul Wildcats, PSG Talon, and RED Canids, as it was before their record was reset. After a perfect group stage performance, RNG won a direct entry to the tournament’s Rumble Stage.

Victor “Flakked” Lirola, Rasmus “caPs” Winther, and Raphaël “Targamas” Crabbé are currently in the top ten MSI players in terms of KDA.

G2’s 22-year-old star mid-laner caPs has the third-highest record in the number of kills at any MSI with a 75% kill participation rate, while the leading MSI marksman is Flakked with 12.2 KDA. In addition, he reached a tournament-high 16.8 KDA with 39 kills, 62 assists, and just six deaths.

The Rumble Stage begins on May 20

The MSI 2022 Rumble Stage, scheduled to begin on Friday, May 20, will pit the competition’s top six League of Legends teams against each other. For now, T1, G2, and RNG stay undefeated, however, the tournament’s next stage will be a true test of their power.

While T1 appears unbeatable this season, they have yet to meet the reigning MSI champions RNG, who’s also on a roll. RNG’s Shi “Ming” Sen-Ming and Chen “GALA” Wei, who registered MSI’s first penta kill versus Red Candisand, will go against T1’s Lee “Gumayusi” Min-hyeong and Ryu “Keria” Min-seok, one of the most deadly duos in the world.

Meanwhile, G2’s new lethal pair Flakked and Targamas will face RNG, as well as T1’s outstanding bot-lane composition. Regardless of the outcome, the Rumble Stage, which begins on Friday, May 20, is going to be an absolute thriller.
