On the night of January 4, Beijing time, the Honor of Kings Winter Champions Cup final was played at the Guangzhou Stadium, and after the 2018 Champions Cup International Invitational, QGhappy and eStar Pro were on stage again after 511 days.
Eventually QGhappy's 4-3 victory over eStar Pro won the title and became the first five-time winner in the Honor of Kings professional league, which was more nerve-racking than that triumph a year and a half ago.
The eStar Pro and the QG happy division finals, which blew the crowd's eye before the match, as two KPL's long-standing powerhouses, the former won two consecutive titles in 2019, and the latter, though the autumn finals failed to beat AG's overplay as runners-up, were avenged in the Winter Championship semi-finals 4-2 after half a month.
The core of the eStar Pro was the QG happy veteran, who was the last previous champion to be taken by the Cat Gods, but then joined the eStar Pro for a variety of reasons, after nearly half a year of dormancy for the new owners, the eStar Pro, the cat god leader, began dominating the game in 2019.
On the contrary, QG happy is a bit off the back, in addition to the various head-to-head confrontation with eStar Pro in the wind, last year's winter final also lost to Hero long, the just finished autumn game in the unanimously optimistic situation crisp defeat to the AG Superplay. Now that the two teams have met again, the two-time finalist, QGhappy, must achieve self-redemption.
The Finals were as fierce as thought, with the first-inning lineup slightly superior eStar Pro taking the lead in the economy, and then promising Ma Chao to steal the game, first in the city; and the second inning, QG happy to catch eStar Pro wild nuclear effect is not good, but also color.
Such mutual constraints ran through the game, and the two sides also went from 1-1 to 2-2 to 3-3, two consecutive QGhappy draws and took the lead, but they couldn't stop the eStar Pro dragging the game to the final seventh-innings summit.
The final game, QG happy start to take the initiative, the gap between the two sides gradually widened, the final stage of QG happy hit a wave of two for four, eStar Pro on this trend.
The showdown is clearly the fiercest in the Honor of Kings Pro since the 2018 KPL Fall Finals, and to be sure, both sides have played the level, but the eStar Pro, which took the lead, still seems to be a little out of tune with the new version.
This has emerged in the autumn game, and the autumn finals were quickly tweaked by the AG Superplay Blitz, the starting lineup for the winter crown changed and the veteran tingle was replaced by 1dao, which proved to have given QGhappy a boost.
The semi-finals and finals won back-to-back victories over AG and eStar Pro, and the title was full of gold. We are back. After the game, QGhappy's elder, also 5-time FMVP winner Fly, spoke out in a loud voice about his pent-up mood.
Indeed, as the founder of KPL's first dynasty, QGhappy has experienced frequent turnover of staff, and their performance on the field in the past year or so has not been stable, but the team is not discouraged, but through constant adjustment to accumulate their own strength. The return of QGhappy has allowed people to see the inside story of an established strong team.
It's worth noting that the past year's Honor of Kings has been a year of great glory, with the eStar Pro coming to the world and then the AG overplay, and now the return of the QG Happy Kings, with a number of strong teams fighting to heat up the competition for the Honor of Kings Pro.
It seems that a single team has been shaken, which gives us more reason to believe that the new season will soon be more suspense and passion for the crowd. (For more original information, please download the \"Surging News\" app)
