Top Korean League Of Legends Team SKT Still Hasn't Lost A Single Game At Worlds

The powerhouse Korean League of Legends team SKT had already set a new record before today's semifinals games against European challenger Origen, with their perfect 9-0 winning streak at the World Championships. Today, the question for eSports fans was: can Origen somehow interrupt that? Once again, SKT said nope.

Today's semifinals match-up was very clearly going to be the end of the road for Origen. Nobody in the League eSports scene expected Origen to win against SKT. But people thought they could at least win a game. Maybe even two. The crowd on hand in Brussels, Belgium, certainly wanted them too, booing the way they did every time one of Riot's analysts called the match-up in SKT's favour. And for a moment, it actually seemed like Origen was going to.

The first match of the day began with a shocking slap to the face for SKT. They'd gone into the match dripping with confidence. Star player Faker was sitting on the bench, and he'd said in a pre-game interview on-stage that he knew his team was going to win 3-0. Then Origen's Paul "sOAZ" Boyer dodged and faked his way out of two-to-one fight so masterfully that it put the whole game on hold:

That was the high point of Origen's day at Worlds — though in their defence, some are calling it the highlight of all of Worlds so far. The team wasn't able to maintain its forward momentum. SKT also happens to be an especially aggressive team with an unmatched ability to punish their opponents for making the slightest mistakes or even just stalling. They quickly found their way back to the top of the match-up and refused to budge.

Even though Origen lost its first game, it was close enough that the team seemed to have a chance to pick something off SKT. The second and third games eliminated any hope of that happening.

Origen continued to play well. Their problem was simply that SKT continued to play better. As one of the shoutcasters said towards the end of the third game: "For every two good plays, Origen makes a bad one." 23 minutes into the third match, the commentators had started writing the team's obituary.

The ending of the third match was tragic, almost heartbreaking for fans who've been following Origen closely during this spectacular first season at Worlds:
