Kwangdong Freecs win close quarterfinal series over DRX in 2022 LCK Spring playoffs

Kwangdong Freecs are advancing to the semifinals of the 2022 LCK Spring playoffs following a close win (3-2) over DRX today.

Since both teams had similar results in the regular split, most experts expected a close series. But because the Freecs earned their playoff spot in a tiebreaker match and had lost their last best-of-three series to DRX, they weren’t the favorites. They, however, defied those expectations thanks to successful skirmishes, strong vision management, and early flanks.
