[Lee Park Ye -jin reporter] Athletes who participated as Korea’s representative in the TFT Machinery and Device Championship, the world competitions of ‘Strategic Team Battle (TFT)’ machines and devices, made meaningful results.
Riot Games (Korea CEO Hyuk -jin Cho) was successful in the TFT machine and device championship from April 29 to May 1, Kim Wan -soo, the representative of Korea, and Lee Woo -jung ranked fourth place. It was announced on the 3rd that it had completed the competition.
‘Dudu’ Kim Wan -soo and ‘Ulli -jung’ Lee Woo -jung advanced to the round of 16 with 12th and 14th in the 32nd round held on the 29th. Kim Do -hyung, a representative of Korea’s representative ‘Horn Bo’, ‘Oh Se -jin’, 24th, and ‘A God’ Kim Young -bum were eliminated.
Kim Wan -soo and Lee Woo -jung scored second and eighth in the round of 16, which was held on the second day of April 30, respectively. Kim Wan -soo scored six points in the first round of the final day, which was held on the last day.
Kim Wan -soo, who scored seven points in the third round, aimed for a reversal in the last round, but gave the first place to Liluo Lee Kwang -chan. Kim Wan -soo was ranked third with a total of 24 points, and Lee Woo -jung finished the championship schedule with fourth place with 17 points.
Korean players who had suffered from the group stage dropout at the TFT referee championship held in October last year gave the belief that they could be promoted in the next championship with much better results in the TFT machine and device championship.
Kim Wan -soo and ‘Ulli -jung’ Lee Woo -jung, who won the finals, have something in common as a member of CNJ e -Sports in Daejeon Hana Citizen. The first international competition, which began to be stable, proved that it could be a sponsorship effect in TFT esports.
The championship went to China’s representative ‘Liluo’ Lee Kwang -chan. Li Kwang -chan reached the top with the overwhelming record of both the round of 16 and the final round on the second day. China has won two consecutive victories by winning the ‘Machine and Device Championship’ following the ‘Judgment Championship’.
The winning Lee Kwang -chan was awarded a $ 48,000 prize (about 60 million won) and a ‘large golden flip overturning trophy’ plated with 24K pure money. Kim Wan -soo, who won third place, won $ 18,000 ($ 22.3 million), and Lee Woo -jung, who won the fourth place, won $ 16,000.
