SofM as support of VKE beats Levi’s GAM

After the unlikely return of VCS 2024this Wednesday (03/04) the confrontation between the two best players in the history of Vietnam took place: GAM Levi by VKE SofM. However, unlike the golden age, SofM played support – and still won the series.

SofM Support? Wasn’t he a jungler?

Legendary Vietnamese jungler SofM, who created the Lee Sin e Rengar Tank, and played end of world by Suning (LPL). SOFM’s last years as coach were brilliant: 4th place with Vietnam at the 2022 Asian Games, play-in final at the 2023 World Cup with Team Whales and currently 4th place in the VCS.

However, with the punishment of 32 players, SofM had to fulfill the support role against the current league champions: GAMdo jungler Leviwhich has been a nightmare for Brazil in recent internationals.

Levi and SofM, a clash of generations

Since the departure of SOFM from Vietnam, the player who dominated the league – and at times even tormented the world – was GAM Levi. In today’s clash, SofM showed that it still understands what’s going on.

Playing two Karma games, SofM only died once and still managed to win an MVP, check out the match numbers:

Levi’s GAM out of MSI 2024? Not yet

If you don’t already know the league format, VCS 2024 will have a lower bracket. So, GAM’s chances remain alive to advance in the competition. While VKE is already in the final of the Upper Bracket.
