LoL World Championship Finals: Samsung White vs Star Horn Royal Club - Teaser Image

Samsung White came out of the floodgates when they brought Akali in their first game of the Semifinals. No one was able to prepare for it and Blue fell for the trap for the rest of the series. Will White bring out another rare champion in the World Championship Finals? For the first game or so, probably. White is known to surprise their opponents especially during the first game of the series with an unconventional pick in order to shock the opposing team and make a grand entrance. This is probably one of the best strategy to make when you are as good as White. Make a shocking entrance that will leave a devastating impression to the opposing team’s morale.

Star Horn should prepare for such strategy in the first game of the match. If they do get the surprise pick, they need to keep their composure and make it a point not to panic. This is just White testing the waters and see if it is right for them to go aggressive in the next game or not. If Star Horn wants to outwit White, they need to bring out another unconventional pick and turn the enemy’s tactic into their own advantage. The best possible way for this to work is for either Insec to play an unconventional jungler but there are risks involved. If Star Horn is not careful, they run the risk of giving the first game of the Finals to Samsung White.

Once the dust has settled, teams will surely begin picking the best champions they can get in the second match of the Worlds Finals. This will be the time when teams will be serious with the game now that they had the chance to feel the enemy. However, it will still be an advantageous point for White. White has been on a roll the entire tournament and it seems like their statistics has never faltered. During the the whole tournament, they had a KDA ratio of 10.01 against Star Horn’s 4.25. Samsung White has had no problems with gold as well as they were able to take objective and generate gold of average 1962 gold per minute against Star Horn’s 1696. This later on resulted to items that led to a killing spree with White having 23.77 champions killed per game against Star Horn’s 17.38.

The problem now is how will Star Horn match up against Samsung White when they have never encountered each other in this tournament. It will all boil down to two players from Star Horn – Insec and Uzi but nevertheless, it will still be a team effort. Zero will need to hold Uzi by the hand to make an effort to keep him up in the gold and take the team to the late game where Uzi will truly shine. Insec can also bring the pressure to the lanes knowing that he has faced White in the past. But, if they keep on placing the weight on Uzi and Insec then White will have their kryptonite. This is the all deciding match, the League of Legends World Championship Finals and the pressure is on both teams.

Prediction: White is the front-runner of the tournament but the underdog still got teeth to bite. 3-2 for Samsung White
