Before the appearance of FL Kati, if asked about the best mid laner VCS Summer 2020 right now, most of them would say that it was GAM’s Dia1. However, there is also a name that is increasingly perfecting itself to become one of the best mid laners in the tournament. That is FL Kati of Team Flash.
AN UNEXPECTEDLY SUCCESSFUL SEASON FOR FL Kati
As a replacement for Optimus, who became almost the soul of Team Flash at that time, so much pressure was placed on FL Kati‘s shoulders. Especially when he had a bad debut when he made professional debut with the old name PuppyK when Optimus was still in the team. So when he took the main position in mid lane Team Flash spring 2020, many people were skeptical of Kati’s ability, thinking that Team Flash will be difficult to go far this season. And even though Flash won that season, the name Kati went unnoticed and was seen as a “secondary double” in Team Flash’s squad.
FL Kati is a supportive and background-oriented Kati in VCS Summer 2020. He always prioritizes using champions like Nautilus, Galio, or Orianna to support his teammates and especially Slayder as much as possible. However, in many matches, this guy was allowed to play the attacking cards, but Kati’s performance only stopped at the round shoulder and did not bring certain mutations. Not that FL Kati has no skills, this guy has been in the top 1 Challenge for a very long time and climbed to a very high ranking on the Korean server. However, in Kati there is always a certain fear, he is not confident in his matchups and often loses lanes, loses soldiers compared to opponents. Even in the Spring VCS Finals when Team Flash was the winner, Kati could not put any pressure on Dia1 and was overwhelmed by GAM’s mid laner in almost 5 games.
CONFIDENT, GROWTH, AND BREAK YOURSELF
The current FL Kati has completely changed and transformed, making him one of the top mid laners. Paul’s presence in the Flash team seemed to be redundant for the fans but somehow brought great motivation to Kati, who had always had the label as the background.
In the Mid Season Showdown, despite facing experienced and classy Taiwanese mid laners, FL Kati still showed a very tough face and was not inferior to any opponent. Summer is where we see the most positive changes in Kati, where he doesn’t tire any mid laner even if it’s Dia1, Yado, or Artifact.
All of FL Kati‘s stats from KDA, damage, minions, or gold difference are among the top mid laners at VCS Summer 2020. Especially Kati has a lot of kills from solokill points this season (just lost to GAM’s Dia1), something we’ve never seen in him in the past. Apparently Kati from the VCS Summer 2020 is a completely upgraded version of him from the previous seasons, where Kati is increasingly improving himself to become the tournament’s top mid laner.
