The fact was proven in the morning of November 6, 2017, when, in a surprising twist of events, the Samsung Galaxy Telecom team absolutely dominated the field and slew the now former eSports events giants, the SK Telecom 1 by 3-0!!!!
The match itself began like any other match: players assembled, champions for the game were chosen as their personal avatars, and the game started. Since Samsung’s opponents were none other than the SK Telecom 1, everyone in the field was expecting for the latter to dominate and school them in LoL goodness, which they actually did in the first 2 games. In fact, when it came to Samsung, their kill count was actually considerably low and at that point, things were looking a bit bleak for these six South Korean gaming hopefuls.

In the end, Samsung was able to escape the battle unscathed and thus, be named as LoL’s new eSports event giant!

Either way, it will definitely be a sight to behold!
