ROX Tigers wins KeSPA Cup!

ROX Tigers beat the Kongdoo Monsters 3-1 in the Finals series

ROX Tigers had previously taken out SK Telecom T1 in the Semifinals in a very close 2-0 series. Both the games could have went either way and depended on the final team fight to determine the victor. This was a tragic blow to SKT, the 2016 World Champions who only beat ROX 3-2 in the grand finals of worlds. The win gave ROX a serious morale boost into the grand finals against the Kongdoo Monsters

The Kongdoo monsters while taking out 1 game, didn’t put up that much of a fight overall. They were pretty much rolled by ROX Tigers, which would be easily by considered one of the best teams in the world. Their strong performance continued against the Kongdoo Monsters which left the team struggling from the start.

These teams will both qualify for the IEM Gyeonggi, as ROX had already qualified for the IEM by placing first in the LCK Summer Split. This means that Kongdoo Monsters who had come second will receive the qualification representing the Korean region.
