League of Legends Worlds 2018 LogoThe League of Legends Championship is build on the fundament of the group stage. In a Bo5 and the Double Round Robin Format only the top two teams will qualify for the Playoffs. Group C consists of KT Rolster, MAD Team, TBA from the Play-In and Team Liquid. The first seed candidate from the NA LCS carries all hope north-americas. The summer split winner and 5th placed MSI candidate comes with a fresh, but well experienced team in the worlds. MAD Team is informally called “the number 2” (after flash wolves) in Taiwan. Still, we can't dig much in the past, as the team were newly formed in November 2017. But Head Coach GreenTea clearly stated his expectations to reach the Playoffs with his team. Anyhow this group provides some exciting games. Don't miss the livestream – October, the 10th, from 14:00 CEST!

League of Legends Icon Preview and Predictions

Group Stage – Day #7 – Tuesday, October 16, 2018

Match #1: Team Liquid League of Legends LoL Team Logo Team Liquid  vs. kt Rolster KT Rolster League of Legends LoL Team Logo

Start Time: October 16, 01:00 AM PDT/ 04:00 AM EDT / 10:00 CEST

Team Liquid encounters KT Rolster in the opening match of the 7th matchday. The latter are still undefeated at the moment and, depending on the other results, theoretically only 1 more win could mean the safe entry into the playoffs. However, in order not to let the expectations of TL-Doublelift and Co. too high, I stress right at the beginning that it will probably not be the first game, which will lift TL further towards the playoffs. Just recently a TL player reported that on non-tournament days in Korea there is intensive training going on and all players get 13-14h training per day. With a bit of envy they will probably also look at their championship partners Cloud9, who already made it into the playoffs. I repeat myself, but in this game it will be the 0:1 victory for KT Rolster!

Match #2: MAD Team League of Legends LoL Team Logo MAD Team  vs. Edward Gaming EDward Gaming League of Legends LoL Team Logo

Start Time: October 16, 02:00 AM PDT / 05:00 AM EDT / 11:00 CEST

MAD Team plays against Edward Gaming. MAD Team – The “number two” from the LMS, stands just like G-Rex on 0 points and a disqualification seems certain. Nevertheless, it is precisely these games in which victories are to be taken away for “the honour” if EDG is not concentrated. But it is also a fact that Edward Gaming had already won against MAD Team in the first half of the group stage and not only therefore a victory is very likely. I'm predicting a 0:1 win for Edward Gaming.

Match #3: MAD Team League of Legends LoL Team Logo MAD Team  vs. Team Liquid Team Liquid League of Legends LoL Team Logo

Start Time: October 16, 03:00 AM PDT / 06:00 AM EDT / 12:00 CEST

In this case MAD Team is allowed to “stay seated” and plays immediately afterwards against Team Liquid. The first round on day 4 was won by TL. Nevertheless, the curse of unpredictability also applies here and I feel that it will not be EDG but TL that will be cursed. I am predicting a breakdown in the game and a resulting 1:0 win for MAD Team.

Match #4: EDward Gaming League of Legends LoL Team Logo Edward Gaming  vs. kt Rolster KT Rolster League of Legends LoL Team Logo

Start Time: October 16, 04:00 AM PDT / 07:00 AM EDT / 13:00 CEST

Edward Gaming encounters KT Rolster. It becomes again one of the exciting LCK vs. LPL duels and Edward Gaming is a real threat for the target-oriented Koreans. The last encounter was nevertheless finished in the strong lead of KT Rolster. With a 12k gold advantage and a 4/0/4 KT -Dreft (on Xayah) EDG could not stand much of an chance. Above all Jungler EDG-Clearlove (on Nocturne) was successfully kept in check by the opposing Jungler KT-Score (on Xin Zhao). The linear game ended with a Baron Power Play and a decisive skirmish near the nexus. Also for this game, the chances are good for KT. I'm predicting a hard-fought 0:1 for KT Rolster.

Match #5: EDward Gaming League of Legends LoL Team Logo Edward Gaming  vs. Team Liquid Team Liquid League of Legends LoL Team Logo

Start Time: October 16, 05:00 AM PDT / 08:00 AM EDT / 14:00 CEST

Edward Gaming encounters Team Liquid in the penultimate game of the 7th matchday. Both last encounter on day 3 ended with a win for Edward Gaming. In the second half of the group stage, this game should be decisive if Team Liquid still wants to qualify for the playoffs (via tiebreaker) and if, contrary to my prediction, TL should win against MAD Team. Anyway, it will be a tight game and I'm predicting a 0:1 for Team Liquid.

Match #6: KT Rolster League of Legends LoL Team Logo KT Rolster  vs. MAD Team MAD Team League of Legends LoL Team Logo

Start Time: October 16, 06:00 AM PDT / 09:00 AM EDT / 15:00 CEST

Finally KT Rolster encounters MAD Team again. In the best case this game doesn't even have any effect on the seeding of KT Rolster, in the worst case it would just guarantee the 1st seed. Without question, the team is playing at world champion level and I can hardly imagine a victory for MAD Team. I am predicting a clear 1:0 for KT Rolster!

Group Stage – Day #4 – Saturday, October 13, 2018

Match #5: Team Liquid League of Legends LoL Team Logo Team Liquid  vs. MAD Team MAD Team League of Legends LoL Team Logo

Start Time: October 13, 05:00 AM PDT / 08:00 AM EDT / 14:00 CEST

Team Liquid plays against MAD Team in the penultimate game of the day. TL is also under pressure to move and the team has so far walked off the rift twice without winning. In the last defeat against Edward Gaming they tried it with the Sion-Gragas-Galio-Kai´Sa-Leona Matchup, but could not withstand the speed of Edward Gaming. In the end, it's also TL's fault that they try to follow the Asian playing style. But it's so much more fast-paced than the LCS style with the economy fixed game dynamics. But TL can do and will more than that, as the guys around TL-Doublelift have already proven several times, so I'm also predicting a 1:0 victory for Team Liquid.

Match #6: KT Rolster League of Legends LoL Team Logo kt Rolster  vs. Edward Gaming EDward Gaming League of Legends LoL Team Logo

Start Time: October 13, 06:00 AM PDT / 09:00 AM EDT / 15:00 CEST

KT Rolster encounters Edward Gaming. An encounter that should get a lot of attention. Will it be the LPL or will it be the LCK remains the big question… So far both KT and EW are victorious in both games and therefore it will be the first preliminary decision – no so far I would not go, but nevertheless it will be an exciting encounter. KT Rolster will show his best side again and I expect a 1-0 victory for KT Rolster.

Group Stage – Day #3 – Friday, October 12, 2018

Match #1: MAD Team League of Legends LoL Team Logo MAD Team  vs. kt Rolster KT Rolster League of Legends LoL Team Logo  

Start Time: October 12, 01:00 AM PDT/ 04:00 AM EDT / 10:00 CEST

MAD Team encounters KT Rolster. After a bad performance on the first day and one day break, MAD is under pressure to perform. The LMS is a strong region and LMS colleagues FW have already won their second game. KT Rolster with the home advantage will probably win a playoff place, but in Bo1 it is about not to lose nerves and always give 100%. Though KT-Smeb, Score, Ucal, Deft and Mata don't leave much room for weaknesses, it is the encountering of two teams that don't play regularly against each other. After the below-average performance of Afreeca Freecs and Generation Gaming, KT Rolster remain the last hope of many South Koreans. That's why I'm betting on the world championship host and predict the 0:1 for KT Rolster.

Match #2: Team Liquid League of Legends LoL Team Logo Team Liquid  vs. Edward Gaming EDward Gaming League of Legends LoL Team Logo 

Start Time: October 12, 02:00 AM PDT / 05:00 AM EDT / 11:00 CEST

Team Liquid will play against Edward Gaming on the third matchday. The latter come from the currently highly acclaimed region of China and are as successful as their region colleagues. Team Liquid (not surprisingly) started the tournament on the first day with a defeat against KT. Nevertheless TL-Doublelift remains with 11.1 CS/min (12.6 Uzi, 12.1 Rekkles) and 75% Kill Participation a factor not to be underestimated, which will make it difficult for Edward Gaming to set priorities in Lane-Targeting. If you concentrate too much on Bot Lane, the disaster will come from the middle and Vice Versa. I have a good feeling that Team Liquid will win this time 1-0.

Group stage – Day #1 – Wednesday, October 10, 2018

Match #1: KT Rolster League of Legends LoL Team Logo kt Rolster  vs. Team Liquid Team Liquid League of Legends LoL Team Logo 

Start Time: October 10, 01:00 AM PDT/ 04:00 AM EDT / 10:00 CEST

 The start of the group phase will be made by KT Rolster against our North American LCS representatives. Both teams have been able to sit back in the World Cup and watch the play-in phase to go on. Team Liquid should be known to many readers, with its Botlane-centered game, the dominance of the team stands and falls rather in the midgame and of course Lategame. The Botcamp remains the biggest weak point. On the other side is KT Rolster, who won both the regular season standings and the LCK 2018 Summersplit (with 70.000 € prize money) in the current season. Son “Ucal” Woo-hyeon (formerly Cloud9 Junger), who joined in 2018 as reinforcement, has closed the missing pressure over the Jungle. KT Rolster will be especially dangerous for the Liquid Botlane and Xmithie must always be available for a counter-gank. I'm expecting one of the more exciting games right at the beginning and still predict a 1-0 win for KT Rolster.

Match #2: EDward Gaming League of Legends LoL Team Logo Edward Gaming  vs. MAD Team MAD Team League of Legends LoL Team Logo

Start Time: October 10, 02:00 AM PDT / 05:00 AM EDT / 11:00 CEST

As the second game of the evening, the Far East Asian teams Edward Gaming and MAD Team encounter. Edward Gaming from China is down for its continuity; supporter Tian “Meiko” Ye has been under contract since 2014 and keeps “the store running”. After the miserable Spring Split and the defeat against Royal Never Give up, Edward Gaming  had a way better summer split. As if the team wanted to clear up its conservative past, it surprised me in the play-in event with many fresh moves. With Jax as the trademark of EG Toplaner Jeon-Ji-Jon, I hope to see a Gankplank (which has a breathtaking win rate of 100% to 81 games in the current tournament, but is lagging behind in the CS). On the other side are the Taiwan candidates of MAD Team, the team founded at the end of November holds many surprises and has qualified unlike Edward Gaming directly into the group stage. I'm still predicting a 1-0 win for Edward Gaming.
