100 Thieves defeat G-Rex in Group Stage clash
The match rolled to a slow start with the first large scale fight not happening until 15 minutes in. But as the game progressed, Zaqueri “Aphromoo” Black took over on his Thresh. There are not many supports that can make the plays required to carry a team on an international stage, but Aphromoo proved himself to be one of them with his performance.
Every fight that broke out was marked by the constant threat of Thresh’s hook. Aphromoo connected time after time, both peeling for his teammates and predicting the movements of G-Rex. This dominance from Aphromoo persisted until 100 Thieves picked up a Baron buff that allowed them to push for the bottom lane inhibitor.
With super minions pounding on G-Rex’s botlane, 100 Thieves pushed through the mid lane with Aphromoo and Kim "Ssumday" Chan-ho taking the lead. G-Rex’s Hsieh "PK" Yu-Ting attempted a last ditch initiation with his Sion ultimate, but missed 100 Thieves completely. 100 Thieves capitalized on the opening and Ssumday’s Urgot ultimate executed PK, landing a four-man fear that would seal the win for 100 Thieves.
Moving into Worlds, fans’ expectations of 100 Thieves was at an all-time low. Having barely qualified through championship points, many felt their spot for Worlds was undeserved. The unexplained substitution of carry Richard "Rikara" Samuel for Cody “Cody Sun” Sun only added fuel to that fire.
But with playmakers like Aphromoo and a heavy top lane presence in Ssumday, 100 Thieves have the tools to make their mark.
