Evil Geniuses leaves MSI 2022, RNG to grand final2022-05-27 11:35:00
The first game can be summarized by its final score. A lone kill for Jojopyun became a consolation prize against the Chinese 22 kills during a 35-minute game. The second one started as a closer match, with EG having a slight gold lead by its middle. But in the end, even the teamfight victory didn’t let NA prevail.
On the decider, RNG rapidly accumulated a significant 9k gold lead. At the 25-minute mark, their advantage was reduced to just 3k thanks to EG's Kyle "Danny" Sakamak's four kills. But what seemed as a shine of light for NA was soon buried by RNG's executions.
Evil Geniuses leave the tournament with $25,000 prize money and additional 10% sales cut. RNG moved to the grand final, but since they are playing the tournament remotely from China, the crowd won’t be able to enjoy the grand final in full.
Mid-Season Invitational 2022 is staged from May 10-29 in Busan, Korea. It features 11 teams from all over the world. The tournament's grand final will take place on May 29.
