The LPL Spring Split champions Royal Never Give Up won Mid-Season Invitational 2021. On their way to the final where they faced DAMWON KIA from LCK, they took first place in Group A with Pentanet.GG from Oceania and Unicorns of Love from LCL, finished second at the Rumble stage and beat PSG Talon 3:1 in semifinal.
In the decisive series of the event, only the blue side was victorious. The first three games of the match were very competitive and two of them were taken by RNG. The Chinese team had a chance of taking the fourth game but Pentakill by Ghost helped DAMWON to get it through to the decisive map.
Unfortunately for them, it turned to be a heavy stomp in favor of Royal Never Give up. Therefore, they secured $75,000 prize money as well as an additional spot for LPL at Worlds 2021. The event will be held in Shenzhen, China, this Autumn.
