[Hyperplay] Vietnam Sweeps Singapore 2-0, Will Face Malaysia in the Grand Finals

Vietnam swept Singapore 2-0 in the Hyperplay semi-finals last evening at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. Game 2 in particular was hard fought by both sides as the momentum shifted back and forth. For a long while during the mid game, no one could tell who would win. While defending their base late game, the Super Star Destroyers caught a few Singapore players out of position, which sealed the deal. Tania Mae caught up with team Vietnam to find out about their experience of Hyperplay so far. Game 2 looked harder than game 1. What made it a closer game?...

3 reasons why this is the week to catch LCK Live

There was a lot of hype last year when KT Rolster made a Super Team. Despite not making it to Worlds, they committed to staying together for another season. Out of hibernation, Rush too was added into the mix. Kingzone-Dragon X (formerly Longzhu Gaming) and KSV (former Samsung Galaxy) kept their squads intact as well. So with less roster changes this year, is 2018 LCK more stacked than last? We’ll find out as the season plays out, starting with a titanic second week. If it thrills you to see super teams clash, here’s 3 reasons why you’re in for...

IMP deftQ: “Always blame yourself before blaming others.”

In a pleasant surprise, Singapore’s homegrown team Impunity (IMP) made it past the group stage in the 2017 Vainglory World Championships, even taking one game off reigning champions ROX Armada in the best of two. As game one progressed, the crowd at Kallang Theatre cheered harder and wilder. No one expected the Singapore team to get out of groups, what more slaughter the South Korean squad in a clean 14-minute game. While game two wasn’t perfect, IMP fought hard and were merely a few attacks away from victory at their opponent’s exposed Vain Crystal. When the Singapore home team...

Exclusive: SKT Peanut “kkOma told me, Blank is waiting for you down there.”

In SK Telecom T1’s quarterfinals match against Misfits, Han “Peanut” Wang-ho started in game one with a 81% kill participation on Sejuani. They won convincingly. In game two however, despite being on an early game jungler, Peanut’s Jarvan IV did not make an impact. When Misfits applied pressure bot side, he was walking from base. When Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok needed pressure at mid, he was a bit too far for a counter-gank. As expected, Kang “Blank” Sun-gu then took his place in all remaining games. SKT Peanut is not ROX Peanut. In many ways, we have yet to see...

Getting Real with SKT T1 Huni: ‘I’ve improved a lot as a person and professionally.’

SK Telecom T1 are through to the semifinals after being pushed to game 5 by Misfits. A monumental series that forced SKT to adapt, adjust, and tweak their drafts to inch out the Misfits line up, Seung “Huni” Hoon Heo’s performance was an important factor to victory. Before Worlds, SKT had to make a decision on whether Ui “Untara” Jin-Park or Huni would be the sole top laner coming onto the international stage. Despite Untara’s LCK Summer showing, Huni was chosen and has been delivering. Since the group stage, he’s shown outstanding skill on Cho’gath and more recently, Jayce...
