Solve the task of ‘Reverse Heaven’ Keria, ‘Professor Hillisang’
Today, T1 will play their first match of the 2023 MSI (Mid-Season Invitational). The opponent is the Mad Lions (MAD), the 2023 Spring Champions of the LEC (League in Europe, Middle East and Africa). T1 is expected to show its vicious performance as it has achieved runner-up in four consecutive competitions from MSI last year to 2023 LCK (League of Legends Champions Korea) spring.
However, it is expected that the opponent, MAD, will also show formidable potential. In the 2023 LEC spring regular season, it was only 8th with 3 wins and 6 losses, but won the championship through the group stage and playoffs. They are full of confidence as much as they showed ‘Miracle Run’.
The matchup that draws attention in the confrontation between the two teams is the supporter. This is because T1’s Keria (Ryu Min-seok) and MAD’s Healisaeng (Zidravets Galabov) both play key roles in the team’s operation.
Keria is the undisputed ‘brain of T1’. It is so trusted that the jungler owner (Moon Hyun-joon), who is on the same team, said, “(Keria’s) understanding of the game is high, so if you listen to that, it seems to go well.” The wide range of champions is also a strength. He used 17 champions in the last 2023 LCK Spring Regular League. He played a total of 43 sets, so he pulled out another weapon every 2.5 matches. In particular, not only support champions, but also ranged dealer champions such as Caitlyn, Kalista, and Barus were appointed, leading the so-called ‘one-deal support’ meta.
Hillisang is a seasoned veteran who debuted in 2014. He has been famous since his Unicorns of Love (UOL) days, and after moving to Fnatic, a prestigious European club in the 2018 season, he was considered the best supporter in Europe. Since this year, he has moved the team to MAD and is active. He is famous in Korea for his ‘high risk high return’ play style. He is particularly active as a grab-type champion such as Thresh and Pike with creative play, and is nicknamed ‘Professor’ in Korea. Of course, his ups and downs are so severe that he is considered a weakness.
If Keria is a ‘hexagonal supporter’ who is in charge of the team’s operational side, creating variables and digesting line battles in compliance, Healisaeng can be said to be a ‘specialist’ who specializes in playmaking that creates unexpected variables. As much as that, in the confrontation between the two teams, it is expected that the key will be whether Keria blocks Healisaeng’s variable and designs an advantageous board.
In the confrontation between the two players, the key champions are likely to be Rakan, Thresh, and Annie.
Rakan is the most used support champion, having been selected 11 times during the MSI play-in stage. It is a card that draws attention as it has been banned 10 times and has a ban/pick rate of 84%. In the last 2023 LCK Spring Playoffs, Keria took out Rakan three times and achieved a good record of 2 wins and 1 loss. Healisaeng also used it twice in the 2023 LEC Spring Playoffs, winning 1 win and 1 loss.
Thresh is also a card that both players are familiar with. For Keriah, Thresh is the most used Most Champion in her career. He pulled out a total of 47 times, showing a 68% win rate. In particular, it is a weapon that has attracted attention by showing super plays through predictive grabs. Healisaeng is also a familiar champion who has played 81 times and has a 53% win rate 토스카지노.
Annie is highly likely to be used as a joker pick. Annie, who was selected 3 times and banned 11 times in play-ins, has won all 3 rounds of appointment and boasts a 100% win rate. Variable creation using powerful crowd control techniques (CC skills) fits the current meta and can appear at any time. Both players used Annie during the last spring season, so they can bring it out whenever the situation arises.
