Samsung White Takes Home $1M With 2014 League of Legends World Championship
As we reported earlier, the finals of 2014 League of Legends World Championship were held yesterday on October 19 between Samsung White and Star Horn Royal Club ending with a massive dominating victory by the former.
The Korean team has taken home prize money of $1 million along with a more honorable championship title while the Chinese pros scooped up the runner’s up place for the second time in a row.
Sangam Stadium may have opened to house a soccer tournament, but on Sunday night, Samsung White turned it into a slaughterhouse. Closing out its indomitable 2014 post-season run, Samsung White ran away with the League of Legends 2014 World Championship, defeating Star Horn Royal Club in a 3-1 rout.
Though Uzi and his Royal Club did manage an impressive Game 3 win, today’s outcome means a second year in a row in which the team finished second place in the World Final.
Other than this, Mata the team support at Samsung White was awarded with the 2014 World Championship MVP after he attained with 18 kills, 27 deaths and 253 assists.
In Game 1, Samsung White dominated from the beginning moments; there were well executed dives in the mid and top. An aggressive attack on bot tower resulted in Star Horn falling behind materially and ultimately the game snowballed for a Samsung White win.
Star Horn did fight back in Game 2 but a bottom lane fight garnered more attention than usual and ended in favor of Samsung White, thanks to mistakes on the Chinese team that ultimately turned the tables.
Game 3 shows Star Horn fighting back with full force when they outplayed Samsung White even in the early game thanks to Pawn being outplayed and Uzi going over the top.
Game 4 turned out to be decisive as both the teams played similar to the Game 1 – and rendered similar results. Samsung White dominated overall; while Star Horn made some valiant moves eventually a ‘white-wash teamfight and dragon put the game out of reach.’
