LCK fans were shocked today as Griffin were handed their first series defeat of the season by second-from-last place team Gen.G. After missteps in the draft, Griffin found themselves on the back foot, losing both games after a dominant performance from their opponents. Needless to say, this stunned a fair few people:






Commenters quickly pointed to Park "Ruler" Jae-hyuk’s Vayne as the main reason for victory. His 5/0/5 and 9/0/3 performances in the two games showed just how strong a player he is. As some pointed out, though, maybe Vayne is just broken?:




Griffin’s draft was weak, relying on Lucian and Ryze, whereas Gen.G were clearly ready to put their faith in champions which had become more prominent in the meta in recent weeks. This spelt disaster for Griffin, especially in game two:


And then, of course, the memes came:





Defeats like this always send ripples through the community, and fans are now questioning whether Griffin will be able to adapt their playstyle in-tact as other teams close the gap. Next week, they face Jin Air Green Wings, who’ve recently turned a corner in their own play, too.


Jin Air look to hand Griffin the second upset of the year, but the odds are even lower, as they hadn’t won a game all year until very recently.
