Following a run of health issues and dangers, Fnatic's fortune finally turned for the better as the substitute support showed up in an epic first day of LoL Worlds 2022.
Fnatic's road to League of Legends World Championship 2022 has been a constant interchange of good and bad fortune.
First, the team had a shaky performance in the Summer split and had to go on a semi-miracle run in the lower bracket of the playoffs but just a week before going to the big stage, the bot lane duo tested positive for Covid-19, throwing a massive wrench in the team's works.
It was clear they would have to play with at least one substitute but that's when the good fortune struck again.
Rhuckz, the support substitute, was called up on extremely short notice but that didn't prevent him from showing up in a big way as he went through both matches on the first day of the Play-In stage without dying a single time.
Furthermore, Upset's delayed flight due to the aforementioned positive Covid test meant he wouldn't be able to get rid of jetlag before the matches started but that didn't prevent him from a dominating performance in both matches that he finished deathless, the same as his new support.
Additional credit goes to both players as they faced Caitlyn and Lux combo in the first match, one of the most annoying things that can happen to anyone in League of Legends. That said, the Caitlyn in question, Kaori, is a sub in EG roster so the North American team was not at 100 per cent either.
