League of Legends Worlds: Can ‘Golden Left Hand’ top ‘Faker’ to earn a grand slam?

One of the most well-known nicknames for Zhuo Ding in League of Legends is “Golden Left Hand,” and he will rely on every ounce of his formidable abilities to land a winning strike against his idol this weekend.

Highly regarded in the gaming world as “Knight,” Zhuo’s status as one of the few left-handed gamers on the esports scene sets him apart. As he faces off against his respected idol, the ultra-talented mid laner “Faker” from the T1 team, in Sunday’s League of Legends World Championship (LoL Worlds) semifinal round, the competition is sure to be fierce. Faker, who has been likened to the Michael Jordan of esports, is pursuing his record-breaking fourth world title at LoL Worlds.

Showcasing the utmost confidence, Knight has no intention of shying away from the challenge. In a recent interview while in Busan, South Korea, he acknowledged Faker’s perfect streak of 6-0 series victories against teams from the League of Legends Pro League (China) at Worlds. Despite this, he firmly declared, “I want to break it.”

The event itself is the zenith of competitive video gaming, gathering 24 elite teams from regional leagues to compete in a long-spanning five-week tournament. The hallmark of the tournament is the confrontation between two teams of five players on a magical battlefield called Summoner’s Rift.

Beyond this thrilling setup, the addition of various elements such as monsters, minions, turrets, and an array of plot twists creates complexity and excitement, making it a nerve-wracking affair for players and fans alike.

The Golden Left Hand certainly has a golden chance this Sunday when his JDG Intel Esports Club (JDG) faces off against Faker and T1 in a semifinal showdown at the Sajik Indoor Gymnasium in Busan.

Last year, the championship match at Chase Center in San Francisco witnessed an underdog story for the ages as Kim “Deft” Hyuk-kyu led the DRX team to a dramatic victory over the formidable T1. Now, in 2023, JDG is on the cusp of making history by potentially claiming all four major titles throughout the season.

Knight, widely recognized as one of the premier mid laners in the global scene since his debut at the age of 16 in 2017, has been an influential figure in JDG’s successful run. With his eyes set on the “Golden Road” to glory, JDG has the chance to etch their name in the annals of League of Legends history.

The semifinal showdown at the League of Legends World Championship 2023 Knockout Stage isn’t just about personal milestones, but also about achieving a thrilling team accomplishment. This much-anticipated matchup will set the stage for a fascinating showdown between two of the greatest teams and players in the esport world.
