Gen.G is the 2023 LCK Summer Season after defeating T1. Gen.G has now earned its third consecutive domestic title.

Gen.G added yet another trophy to its case. The team secured a clean 3-0 victory over T1 in the 2023 LCK Summer Season finals. Once again, Gen.G denies T1 the title and the number one seed at an international event. It is becoming a pattern for T1 to be dominant throughout playoffs and lose all steam in the finals.

On Gen.G’s side, all players contributed to the team’s victory. The assignments were clear, and the team executed the win conditions efficiently. Now, Gen.G and T1 are set to start their Worlds preparations, while the rest of the LCK seeds are yet to be decided.

At Worlds, Gen.G and T1 will meet JD Gaming and Bilibili Gaming. The top two from LCK are heading to Worlds with a chip on their shoulder. These four teams met in MSI 2023, where the LPL representatives took down LCK teams in the Bracket Stage.

There is more at stake in the battle of the regions than ever before. Especially since JDG recruited former Gen. G’s prodigal son Park “Ruler” Jae-hyuk.

Before Worlds, some of the players are headed to the 2022 Asian Games. The roster includes Ruler and Seo “Kanavi” Jin-hyeok from JDG, Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok, Ryu “Keria” Min-seok and Choi “Zeus” Woo-je from T1, and Jeong “Chovy” Ji-hoon from Gen.G.

Faker qualifies for Worlds in South Korea

For the first time, Faker has qualified for a World Championship hosted in South Korea. Faker failed to qualify back in 2014 and 2018.

Gen.G has claimed the first seed in the event, while T1 gets the second seed based on the Championship Points accumulated. The third and fourth seeds will be defined through the Regional Finals. In this bracket, KT Rolster, Hanwha Life, Dpuls KIA, and defending champion DRX are hoping to claim a spot in the event.
