Preview and Predictions

EU Round #2: Logo of LCS EU Team Roccat Roccat vs. Origen - EU LCS Team Logo Origen

Head to head record in regular Summer Split: Roccat 2 : 0 Origen
(August 30th, Start Time: 08:00 AM PDT/ 11:00 AM EDT/ 05:00 PM CEST)

With Origen being a top summer split contender having already lost multiple games to Roccat this best of 5 series could be exciting! Origen has shown enough strength to take wins from a previously undefeated team during the EU playoffs.

Origen - LCS Team LogoOrigen (OG) came to the LCS straight from the challenger series, being founded by Enrique “xPeke” Cedeño Martínez, after going 9wins to 1loss. It’s difficult being able to go from nothing to the LCS and Origen as a team managed to prove that they’ve got what it takes to compete. Having already taken 2nd place during the summer playoffs and the summer split they’re showing great strength and potential.

Logo of LCS EU Team RoccatRoccat (ROC) had an amazing showing from the 2012 EU promotion tournament right to the 2014 LCS. Previously being known as a contender for top European team they had a rough 2015 spring split, allowing doubt to grow. They’ve already shown a good amount of improvement in the summer split, but can they once again shine and beat the top teams?

With Origen being considered a top European team Roccat will have to look to their past and remember that they were once the weakness of the best. Oskar “Vander” Bogdan, Roccat’s support, will be looking to catch people out during this game, with great map pressure and warding Origen will need to look to removing as much vision as possible. Origen has a stronger KDA across the board on all players, excluding supports with a 0.7 kda difference in Roccat’s advantage, whilst also holding a team KDA of 5.0 against Roccat’s 3.9.

For this particular game we’re going to want to watch every single player. All players across the board from both teams have the ability to control the game. xPeke will more than likely roam and Erlend “Nukeduck” Holm, Roccat’s mid-laner, will likely answer by pushing. Vander will want to catch people out and that’ll be answered by the tanks of Origen with Alfonso “Mithy” Aguirre Rodriguez playing hard engage champions. Both of these teams have answers to how the opposing team plays, so we’re going to have to take every detail into account. Roccat hold a 2 win advantage against Origen, however these were many weeks ago and both teams have shown great improvement. But which team has improved more? Roccat managed to defeat Giants 3:0, a clean sweep against a team that had a similar LCS standing as them. However Origen has also improved a significant amount, having taken wins from the previously undefeated Fnatic and nearly taking a best of 5 series off of them during the Playoff finals, all while holding 2nd place during the summer split.

Prediction: Even though Roccat hold a 2:0 record against Origen I think this series is going to end with an Origen victory. Roccat will show their strength with an early win, maybe 1:1, however I think Origen have improved a significant amount more. Along with constantly holding a top place in EU I’ll be predicting an Origen 3:2 Victory.
