Order simply get tossed around like ragdolls on Day 3 of MSI 2022, as even the Oceanic champions’ iconic champions can’t seem to buy them a win…
Order vs Evil Geniuses
A stupendous game out of Jojopyun and Evil Geniuses as they obliterate the Oceanic champions off the Rift. The rookie mid laner has been under heavy criticism from the slightly deranged European community since he dared to banter on Twitter, but the ever-confident North American champion doesn’t seem fazed by it at all. His proactivity on the Sylas was the main engine behind all the early game plays that the Evil Geniuses were able to capitalize off of, setting them up for a huge snowball that they used to finish off Order – unlike yesterday. Though he started out as a lane-dominant Chovy fanboy, Jojopyun has since refined his style in such a short period of time – nowadays, he looks more like Caps than Chovy with his insistence on making proactive teamplays than simply securing a CS lead. I have been extremely impressed with this kid’s ability to adapt his playstyle on the fly, since it’s something that even veteran players struggle with late into their career. Combine that with his general disregard for all the backlash he’s getting on Twitter, and he is starting to look more and more like the future torchbearer of League of Legends in North America.
G2 vs Order
It’s days like this where the critics of MSI speak up the loudest. Order simply look out of their depth in all facets against G2, simply getting rag-dolled around the map and getting embarrassed left and right. Granted, PENTANET last year were able to upset and show through to the Rumble Stage for the first time in Oceanic history; but this year’s champions are a far cry from pulling anything of similar caliber. Players like Kisee are simply just getting skill-diffed in assassin matchups and the team has no semblance of a half-decent macro game at all. It is simply sad to watch a region whose best talents simply get poached into North America year after year, get beaten down by regions with a much bigger player base.
