The Heated Match Between Bilibili and Weibo
While waiting for the next LPL developments, here is a summary of how the game between Bilibili and Weibo went on:
At first, Weibo had the advantage. The two teams opened with an aggressive play from their respective junglers. While Bilibili’s disrupted the enemy lines with some key takedowns, Weibo still had the better map control thanks to its solo laners. The latter team managed to get all of the dragons, got the Dragon Soul and even slew the Baron. With so much advantage, there was no way Weibo wouldn’t have won.
Things weren’t looking good for Bilibili and its team members knew they have to step up their game. In the second game, Wei “WeiWei” Bo-Han, the team’s jungler, doubled down on his jungle efforts. He opened the way for a top lane gank which provided Bilibili with the jumpstart it needed. The team managed to hold the line on all fronts and quickly piled up so much gold that they had 2,000 more than their opponents. This number eventually skyrocketed to 8,000, with the game obviously ending in Bilibili’s favor.
Everything was about to be decided with the last game. It opened in Weibo’s favor with the team once again demonstrating amazing map control. Still, Bilibili Gaming buckled up and managed to turn the tables. While Bilibili was far from replicating the jungle success from the second game, its efforts were still enough.
Bilibili eventually got in a heated Teamfight with Weibo in the Baron pit and surprised everyone by winning the exchange and subsequently winning the game. With the match over, Bilibili’s record in the LPL rose to 1:0 while Weibo’s fell to 1:2.
