Rise

CH 107

Phoenix was caught completely off guard by him.
He’d outclassed Demon, something Phoenix never even considered possible.
And then he outclassed Legend.
His Riven was so good that Phoenix would even place him on the same level as the best Toplaner in the world! Heh.
He shook his head and followed after his teammates to congratulate KG, all the while thinking of God Roundy.

This game reminds me of back then.
Phoenix smiled towards God Roundy and made a small courtesy bow.
“Well played, Roundy.” He thought back to Season 1 Worlds.
That was when he’d first played against Roundy.
And lost.
Just that the reason he lost back then was different from now.
In that game, it wasn’t Roundy who’d carried his team, but their Midlaner who had.
That guy was something else.
The thought alone of him sent shivers down Phoenix’s spine.
A 15 year old who had shown him every corner of the Rift.
Such a pity that that guy left.
I would’ve loved to play against him again…

Phoenix started playing League of Legends in Season 1.
He was already one of the best players in the game back then.
But he was never number one.
There were two other Midlaners who were simply better.
One was a 15 year old Chinese talent and the other an 18 year old Korean talent.
Phoenix grinned and shook his head as he thought back to Season 1 Worlds.
The Finals that year was something special.
A clash between the two best players the game had ever seen.
Rake and Maple.
It looked like Maple would take the win for the longest time, but it was Rake who made the winning play in the end.
And then Maple disappeared.
He just up and left.
Such a shame… Phoenix sighed, deep and loud.
I wonder what’s happened to that kid.
It’d be great to see him compete again.

The Wembley Arena was quiet.
A stunned silence.
The European crowd couldn’t believe what they’d just seen.
Their team, the one they hoped to see take home the trophy, had lost to KG.
A team without even a King.
The silence persisted as even the Chinese fans didn’t know what to do.
They’d hoped and cheered for KG before the game started.
They were screaming until their lungs gave out when God Roundy made his big play to Ace Legend.
But winning a teamfight and beating Legend were two different things.
The latter was something they never even considered possible.
Finally, someone started clapping.
It set off a wave of applause.
Everyone, European and Chinese fans alike, got up to their feet and started clapping.
Only Emperor teams beat other Emperor teams.
Until now.
For the first time in this year’s Worlds, a regular team beat an Emperor team.
KG had done the impossible.
They’d beaten Legend!

The professional players watching the games in the VIP viewing area were no exception.
They were all clapping for KG.
Moon struck his hands together, like everyone else.
But his mind wasn’t on the stage.
He looked over at the legend a few seats over.
The one that had arrived at the start of the game, calm and relaxed.
That man was now standing and clapping, still smiling.
He’d never lost that smile throughout the game.
Is he why Roundy is playing so good today? That could make sense… Right? He wasn’t sure.
It felt like too much of a coincidence.
But why would he come for Roundy? He had questions, but didn’t want to walk up to that man and ask them.
Whatever.
He shook his head and looked back at the stage where KG was enjoying the applause.

It finally dawned on the few Chinese people in the crowd what’d just happened.
KG had won over an Emperor team! They started laughing, uncontrollably so, and clapped so hard that their hands started going numb.
It woke them up a little.
Enough to open their mouths and start chanting the name of their new favourite team, “KG! KG! KG!” The few broke the dam.
Others started joining in and soon the entire arena was shouting, “KG! KG! KG!”

The people watching the various broadcasts of Worlds were in as much shock as those at the Wembley Arena.
They needed a moment to settle their emotions and then flooded the chats.

「WWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO」

「ITS THE GOOODDDDDDD 6666666」

「GOD ROUNDY >>> KG >>>>>>>>>>> LEGEND」

「omg dis for real? cant be right? someone wake me up before you go go」

「GOD ROUNDY HARD CARRY KKGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!1!!」

No words could describe how the KG fans felt.
Only a week ago, they’d given up all hope.
They’d even taken it upon themselves to go to online forums and flame their team’s players.
The five who’d destroyed all their hopes and dreams! They were furious.
Full of rage and disappointment.
Though mostly disappointment.
They wanted to see their team do well and to see them screw up so badly felt like a low blow.
Yet now, on the verge of being knocked out, they turned it all around.
That rage and disappointment warped into such extreme joy that the fans didn’t know what to do with it.
Jumping up and down their seats.
Hugging their neighbours.
Kissing the girl they had a crush on.
Everything they would otherwise never do.
The LPL wasn’t done for! There was still hope for them! This edition of Worlds wasn’t over! They could still win it all! The trophy could be theirs!

On the caster desk, Qinghe covered his mouth with his hands and pulled down.
He couldn’t believe what’d just happened, but he’d been there shoutcasting it all.
He watched it happen live with his own two eyes.
“Wow…” He turned to the camera and shook his head.
“Wow.
I don’t know what to say.
Just, wow.
That was.
Wow.
KG deserves all the applause.
That was something else.
Wow.” He started clapping again.

Stone nodded and clapped.
He smiled and didn’t know quite what to do.
“Ahh…” He looked at Lolo and then back at Qinghe.
“What do I say about that? That was just so, so good.
God Roundy really lived up to his name.
Can you imagine the pressure he was under? Like, after last week? I don’t know how he did that.
He actually carried both games! Damn!”

The MVP during the group stage of Worlds so far was undoubtedly Tian Tian.
His Riven and Hecarim alone were more than enough to nominate him for that award.
He carried his team on his shoulders and made it possible for them to win what was supposed to be an impossible-to-win game!

The cameras had already panned over to the winning team.
Every display in the arena, along with millions of phones, laptops, tablets, and monitors around the globe showed one scene.
One moment that captured all of the glory and camaraderie and everything that League of Legends and esports represented.
The players from KG jumping out of their seats and clasping each other in an enormous bear-like group hug.
With a beaming Tian Tian at the very center of it.
He was all smiles and laughter and sheer infectious joy!

“Right, now that KG managed to grasp victory this game… I’m guessing Team Flash is pretty shocked right now, huh?” Lolo interjected.

Over in Team Flash’s box, standing out in stark contrast to the cheers and applause, was a dark storm cloud in the very middle of the room.
Right over where the players from Team Flash were sitting.
They had an interesting mixture of expressions on their faces.
From shock to disgust to fear to disbelief.
But schadenfreude in its purest form, that could be found by looking at Chris’ face.
He looked like he’d accidentally eaten the vomit that came from one dog after it had lapped up diarrhea from another dog.
His dreams, and all of Team Flash’s dreams, of making it out of the group stage had ironically disappeared in a flash.
