Golden Guardians 2-0 GAM Esports in MSI 2023 debut

Golden Guardians looked incredibly strong against GAM today as every single member of GG looked incredibly strong in the early laning phases. GAM Esports looked lost right from the start of each game as Kim “River” Dong-woo’s early jungle pathing was exceptional in ensuring GAM was unable to make many plays against GG’s laners.

This was evident throughout both games as GG garnered quick gold leads over GAM. The series then came to an end after GG botlaner Trevor "Stixxay" Hayes claimed a pentakill before ultimately taking the series at MSI 2023 2-0.
