DAMWON Gaming Team Profile
The transformation of DAWMON Gaming this year has been remarkable. The team had a rough start in the LCK Spring and struggled in the playoffs too, finishing fourth. It was a disappointing performance by such a talented squad, but the summer edition was different.
DAMWON dominated the competition from start to finish, winning both the round-robin and the playoffs comfortably.
The victory resulted in plenty of recognition for the organization as a whole, every member of the roster, and the coaching staff.
It has to be mentioned that DAMWON’s success came as a collective effort and every single player deserves respect. The one that shines the most probably is BeryL who’s one of the best supports in the world.
He’s the guy making things happen and calling the shots. If BeryL has a good tournament, DAMWON can easily go all the way.
JD Gaming Team Profile
Since I started talking about strong support players, it’s time to mention JD Gaming’s LvMao. There’s a good case to be made that he’s the best support in the world and he has been dominating the Chinese region in 2020.
JD Gaming barely lost against Top Esports in the LPL Playoffs to finish second and qualify for the Worlds. The team has excellent chemistry and every single guy knows his tasks. JDG is like a well-oiled machine that is ready to crush anyone on the road to the title.
I’m pretty sure that the squad will be eager to finish first in the group and avoid some of the other superteams in the first round of the playoffs, so a win against DAMWON could be crucial.
DAMWON Gaming vs. JD Gaming Prediction and Pick
I believe that DAMWON Gaming might be slightly stronger in terms of talent, but JD Gaming has better coordination and the best support in the game in LvMao. That’s why I see this clash as a coin toss and the price of +117 for the Chinese team is too good to skip.
