FunPlus Phoenix will look to contiue their win streak

FunPlus Phoenix will look to contiue their win streak
While the LPL is on pause due to the coronavirus outbreak, here is a look at each team participating in the tournament. Today’s team is FunPlus Phoenix, the current world champions.

Top: Khan

The only addition to the team, Khan joined from T1 during the off-season. Known for playing carry orientated champions, which Gimgoon prefers to not play, he will require a different playstyle from the rest of the team. Despite losing both of the matches in week one, Khan picked up MVP in the two games they won. While synergy still needs work, fans are optimistic about the new addition to the team.

Despite the rumors of his retirement, GimGoon said he will return for one more year. Known for his ability to play as a weak-side top laner, GimGoon proved himself to be a rock that FPX can rely on. He is expected to share time with Khan for the rest of the year. That being said, with the number of carries in the current top lane meta, as well as the team looking to build synergy with their new top laner, it might be a while before fans see him play.

 


Jungle: Tian

The worlds 2019 MVP will be looking to defend his title, by helping his team for another year. The young jungler will also have to adapt to playing with a new top laner, one that requires a lot more of his attention than the previous one. He was the all-pro jungler in both spring and summer split last year, so he should be up to the task. Known for his aggression, and for playing around mid, Tian will fight to remain as the all-pro jungler. While he did seem to struggle in week one, fans are certain he will regain form shortly.

Mid: DoinB

After years of coming close to making it to Worlds, but always falling short, 2019 was different. On a roster that allowed DoinB’s roaming playstyle to flourish, FPX and DoinB made it and won it all. Last year DoinB showed the world that his unique style doesn’t make him less of a threat. This year, he already changed his residency from Korea to China, as he is looking to add another successful year to his career.


Carry: Lwx

The shotgun of the bot lane finished 2019 off in style, being the only player to have not died once during a World’s final. Winning Carry of the split in Summer 2019, Lwx finished the year in the best form possible. FPX will need him to continue in his top form if they are to continue competing alongside the best. In a region filled to the brim with bot lane carry talent, Lwx will spend another year beside his trusted support, Crisp.

The longtime partner in crime of Lwx, Crisp finally demonstrated that he is a top tier support. After spending so long in the middle of the pack, as far as supports go, 2019 was a big year for Crisp. Being on both the spring and summer all-pro teams, Crisp showed that he belongs alongside the other top tier supports in the LPL.


Team Review

FunPlus Phoenix have two titles to defend, being the current world champions and the LPL champions. Maintaining their victorious roster, FPX are once again favoured to win the LPL and continue representing China internationally. They did have a slow start in week one, falling to both IG and eStar, but fans are hopeful that they will bounce back and regain form.
Tomorrow there will be a look at IG
