Usually Group D of the League of Legends World Championships has always been considered as the group of death in recent years but this year Group C definitely holds this unpopular title. We've seen a similar group constellation with Samsung Galaxy and Royal Never Give Up in the 2017 lol worlds group stage before and it didn't work out well for the Western League of Legends teams in the first place. This year the G2 Esports players were finally able to overcome their international success drought at the Mid-Season Invitational tournament 2017 and the Western superstars left their mark outside the borders of the European LCS but they also had problems in their best-of-1 duels and only narrowly emerged from the group stage. In Group C of the League of Legends World Championship 2017 the South Korean vice world champions of Samsung Galaxy are definitely the top favourites for taking first place because Royal Never Give Up from the Chinese LPL is as usual very difficult to rate. If Cloud9 qualifies for the main event in the Play-In stage of the World Championship the chances of landing in this group would be very high. This would make the “Group of Death” an infinite deal more dangerous. The group stage will start on September 5th, don't miss turning in for more exciting action on Summoner's Rift.

Prediction for LoL Worlds 2017 Group C
The Samsung Galaxy team once again refused KT Rolster's star team to participate in a League of Legends World Championship and the vice world champions qualified themselves for the most important tournament of the year as the third seed from South Korea. The Royal Never Give Up team from China is characterised by a crucial hit-or-miss style: on a good day they will go toe-to-toe with the best teams in the world but on a bad day they will crash and burn brighter than the sun. G2 Esports is also hard to judge – maybe they finally managed to lift the curse and do well internationally after their success in the Mid-Season Invitational. But I've bet on G2 several times before and always got disappointed, this time I'm betting against the European team – maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised in the end!
Potential candidates for promotion:
