WE 5-4 SK: WE reign at Road of the King

ImageThe Road of the King tournament ended with an epic final which saw World Elite seize the title from SK Gaming in an all-kill and an anti all-kill thriller. Meet Your Makers earlier triumphed over Fnatic with a 5-0 victory and claimed the third place.

The final was absolutely sensational, as predicted. After Xiaofeng "Sky" was taken down by Sung Sik "ReMinD" Kim in the opening game, the new Undead phenomenon Zhuo "TED" Zeng soldiered on and defeated ReMinD, Seo Woo "ReiGn" Kang and June "Lyn" Park twice.

World Elite were leading 4-1 and were only one game away from the title while SK Gaming had only Seong Deok "SoJu" Lee left in their line-up. While everyone was expecting TED to finish another all-kill like he did against Meet Your Makers in the semi-finals yesterday, SoJu put up a hard fight and kept SK Gaming's slight hope alive. He later on defeated World Elite's starlet Xuwen "infi" Wang three times in a row in less than 15 minutes and equalised the total score.

The deciding game seemed to favour SK Gaming as World Elite's last player was Ke "Like" Li who had not had many notable achievements so far and it was SoJu's turn to pick map. However, the underdog showed his worth and finished their opponent's last hope of claiming the champion once and for all with a triple hero kill.

World Elite crowned themselves the kings of the Road of the King and claimed a cheque for $10,000. SK Gaming came second and earned $4,000 while the third placed Meet Your Makers received $2,000.

Congratulations to World Elite on becoming the champion!
