On April 5, The Chiefs defeated Legacy to become the League of Legends Oceanic Pro League (OPL) Split 1 Champions. Taking out the first two games convincingly with the second game only lasting 25 minutes, the Chiefs looked in good form and were well placed for a 3-0 victory. However, actually, it is best if you just watch what happened.
“I had to go hard and close that game 5 quick since I have an exam in 10 hours,” said law student Derek “Raydere” Trang from the Chiefs on Twitter straight after the game.Chiefs will now fly to Mexico City to represent Oceania in the International Wild Card Invitational (IWCI) from April 17-24, where they will face Turkey, CIS, Japan, SEA, Brazil and Latin America. Victory at IWCI would secure them a place in the Mid-Season Invitational against the best teams from leagues in North America (NA LCS), Europe (EU LCS), China (LPL), Korea (LCK), and Taiwan (LMS).
“It’s was real struggle for us this split but we managed to claw our way back to the top. We now look to improve on our wildcard performance from last year,” said Bryce “EGym” Paule, Chiefs Support.
