JDG – 2022 LPL Summer Split
After having to play 5 action-packed games, JDG came out on top against Top Esports once again. It was only a few days ago when we got to see these two teams battle it out in a fight to determine which team would be the absolute best in the Chinese region. In the end, if we take both series into account, JDG won 6 out of 10 encounters, which is nothing to scoff at. Sure, Top Esports could’ve played a bit better in some of their games, but the way that JDG remained calm and didn’t lose their temper was something really impressive to see.

Something interesting to consider is that JDG’s top laner 369 was a member of Top Esports when they bested JDG in the summer of 2020, and TES mid laner knight had far more often than not gotten the better of his counterpart Yagao over the course of their careers. Jungler Kanavi stuck to his off-meta guns throughout the series despite some occasional misses, and a relatively young bottom lane in Hope and Missing were critical in the late-game team fights that decided every single game of this all-time series.
But if we look at the other side, that’s now two five-game finals losses in 2022 for Top Esports, and a mistake-laden series from superstar AD carry JackeyLove despite some equally high highs. It’s been a trademark of his playstyle each of the last 10 consecutive splits he’s been in the LPL and not missed playoffs. Top Esports raised some eyebrows when it announced the roster for the LPL finals and chose to start Qingtian in the top lane instead of Wayward, not even having the latter on stage during the opening ceremony.
Just like in 2020, both Top Esports and JDG will qualify directly for this year’s World Championship group stage as the LPL’s first and second seeds, respectively. Their next matches will be on Oct. 7 in New York City. For those who want more action from China’s best league of legends betting teams, tune into the Regional Finals as four teams battle it out for the region’s third and fourth Worlds spots, starting with reigning MSI winners Royal Never Give Up taking on last year’s world champions EDward Gaming, then we’ll get to see a rematch between LNG and Victory 5.
It’s going to be very interesting to see if the Chinese region is still the best in the world. Let’s not forget that last year’s world champions didn’t even reach the LPL finals this time around, which means that both JDG and Top Esports should be able to put up a good performance on the international stage.
To put things in perspective, the 2022 MSI champions are currently fighting for a spot at worlds, that’s how close the competition is in China. While a lot of people have their doubts regarding the LPL teams, we can be sure of one thing, whichever teams end up being their representatives will make it deep into the playoffs. Make sure to stay tuned as we have a lot of things prepared for the upcoming Worlds, including news, league of legends bets, and more!
