Esports: "ShowMaker" backs DWG KIA to have strong 2022 campaign

League of Legends talent Heo "ShowMaker" Su has backed his DWG KIA side to have another strong campaign, praising his teammates for their work ethics, following their win over KT Rolster in the LCK Spring Split 2022.

In their next match at the LCK Spring, meanwhile, DWG KIA are 5/6 to beat Gen.G, who are 5/6 to prevail.

Big year expected from DWG KIA

DWG KIA will once again be expected to excel in the LCK this season, having achieved a second-placed finish in the 2021 World Championship.

And they began the Spring Split on the front foot with a 2-0 win over KT Rolster, following an off-season with a handful of roster changes.

Bot laner Seo "deokdam" Dae-gil was one of those to arrive, having joined DWG KIA in December, and he was a star performer in the second game on Aphelios.

"ShowMaker" makes the difference

But it was mid laner "ShowMaker" who held the key to winning the teamfight in game one, making use of his ultimate on Orianna after 38 minutes.

That earned the team both the drake and baron and ultimately helped them take the lead.

And, reflecting on the performance, "ShowMaker" insisted that although there were plenty of mistakes in the first match of the season, he sees a lot of promise in the current roster.

Speaking in the press room after the match, "ShowMaker" said: "We made a lot of mistakes and I think the one objective teamfight that I wish we played better was the Herald fight - I think we executed the other teamfights quite well.

"The most important factor is hard work - my teammates are working extremely hard.

"Tonight was our first match of the Spring split, so while we might not be perfect, I have no doubt that we'll play well down the road."
