NA Expansion Round 3 – Match #1: Final Five - LoL Team Logo Final Five vs. Team Fusion - LoL Team Logo Team Fusion
(Dec 12th, 11:00 PST/ 14:00 EST/ 20:00 CET)

Team Average KDA Average GpM Average Total Gold
Final Five - LCS NA Expansion Team Logo FINAL FIVE 5.4 1, 700 71, 000
Team Fusion - LCS NA Expansion Team Logo TEAM FUSION 6.8 2, 000 66, 000

Final Five had expressive performance with their 2nd round opponent against Complexity Black. They dominated their whole series against Complexity Black, going 2-0. In their 2nd game, Prototype on Lucian scored the first blood, scoring 4 kills and 0 deaths under 22 minutes. Final Five also had that map presence due to Gate’s Twisted Fate, starting teamfights and picking off enemy heroes that are out of position. Complexity Black didn’t quite lived up to the expectations and was behind the entire game. The game ended in 35:44 with a score of 22-12 in favor of Final Five.

In their 2nd round, Team Fusion faced off against Enemy eSports. The entire series went 2-0 in favor of Team Fusion. The game was evenly matched in the 2nd game, going 4-4 in the scoreboard. Kills went for each team but at 22 minutes in, a teamfight ensued in the jungle of Enemy eSports where it went in favor of Team Fusion 3-2. Nien, the AD Carry of Final Five, also showed expressive numbers on Lucian in their 2nd game, going 9-0 under 30 minutes then ending the game with 10-0 under his belt. Maknoon also showed his versatility playing Poppy both games in the series.

Prediction: Team Fusion is a fan-favorite in the NA Expansion Tournament because of its four well-known players but based on their last few games, Final Five has shown incredible performances and better numbers. If Final Five could deliver the same tenacity and incredible teamwork in their last games, they could win this series.

Team Coast is the number 1 in the ranked 5’s ladder and they defeated Team LoLPro in their 2nd round series.

Team Coast also asserted their dominance over Team LolPro in the 2nd game when the game ended with Mash scoring 10 kills and 0 deaths. The game ended in under 30 minutes with a score of 19-4 in favor of Team Coast.

Prediction: Team Coast went 2-0 in their 2nd round series against Team LoLPro and is currently 4-0 in the NA Expansion Tournament. Although Curse Academy has veteran players, Team Coast has an advantage in terms of individual skills. This series will be in favor of Team Coast.
