Esports: Dignitas shock 100 Thieves to make semi-finals

Dignitas QNTMPAY pulled off one of the biggest shocks at this year's LCS Lock In, having knocked out defending North American champions 100 Thieves in the play-offs.

In their next match in the LCS Lock In, Dignitas are 15/2 to defeat Team Liquid, who can be backed at 1/20.

Little expected from Dignitas

Earlier in the tournament, Dignitas had only just made it through to the knockout stage with a 1-3 record in Group B seeing them through in fourth spot and little was expected of them when they were drawn to face 100 Thieves, who topped Group A with a 3-1 record.

To make matters worse for Dignitas, they had played their previous matches in the tournament without jungler Kim "River" Dong-woo in their ranks due to travel delays, but he did not look out of place when slotting into the team for the quarter-finals.

In fact, he looked right at home and, along with Toan "Neo" Tran was at the forefront of their win over 100 Thieves, who saw their bot lane consistently matched by their opponents.

River enjoys shock victory

Speaking after the shock win, "River" said: "I just want to say to all of the fans that a lot of people probably thought we weren't going to win today against 100 Thieves but we were able to turn it around and get the 2-0.

"Hopefully all the fans and all of the people that realized we're not the weakest team know now that we can turn over any team.

"We know that we're not in the bottom tier - I want people to keep cheering for me and for all of us."
