South Korean team DRX were crowned League of Legends world champions on Saturday

After securing a surprise 3-2 win over compatriot T1 in a thrilling final of the eSports tournament in San Francisco.

T1, the most successful team in eSports history, started out as favorites and took the lead in the first round of the competition.

But DRX took command after several ups and downs, especially thanks to 19-year-old Kim "Zeka" Jeon-woo.

His victory, the team's first, was highly anticipated for the talented 26-year-old Kim "Daft" Hyuk-kyu,

who began competing in 2014, but made the quarterfinals only once, in 2014.

A player so "old" had never won a world championship until this year.

The Finals took place at the Chase Center in San Francisco,

home of the Golden State Warriors NBA team, with approximately 16,000 spectators.

The League of Legends World Championship is considered one of the most prestigious eSports tournaments.
