Group Stage #2 LoL Worlds 2017 – Preview and Predictions



After a short break, the Group Stage of the 2017 LoL World Championship will start its second round on October 12th. All teams of the respective groups have played against each other and the fans got a hint on who will make it out of Group Stage. However, in the important last three matchdays of the Group Stage, each team will have to perform to their full potential, because everyone wants a place in the playoffs of the LoL Worlds 2017, and by 15 October at the latest, it will be decided which teams will have to go home and which will keep fighting for the world championship title. The European teams had a hard time in the first round of the Group Stage, Fnatic is 0:3 and G2 1:2 after the first games, only Misfits Gaming has surprisingly still good chances of reaching the quarter-finals. However, not surprisingly is that the South Korean top teams SK Telecom and Longzhu Gaming are still unbeaten, and in the second round of the Group Stage the two favourites for the world championship title will of course do their utmost to maintain this statistic. In contrast to the first round, where there were matches from three groups every day, the second round will see all the groups in turn being played out individually. This means that each team now has 3 games in one day and is finished with the Group Stage afterwards. The schedule can be found below.

LoL Worlds 2017 Groupstage #2 – Quick Navigation
Day 1 Day 2 Day 3 Day 4

Group Stage #2 – Day 3 of 4 – Saturday, October 14th 

Misfits vs. Flash Wolves Groupstage 2 LoL Worlds 2017
Match #1: Misfits EU LCS Team Logo LoL Misfits vs. Flash Wolves Flash Wolves Team Logo IEM Katowice 2017

Start Time: October 14th, 00:00 AM PDT / 03:00 AM EDT / 09:00 CEST

Misfits have put on some surprising performances, they were able to take down Team Solo Mid and are looking to take a strong position in the group. They’re going to need to put on a day of outstanding performances but they’ve got the potential to climb. Flash Wolves have been unable to take a victory yet, could this be their chance? Tune into the series when it goes live on Saturday, October 14th, to find out!

Misfits EU LCS 2017 Team LogoMisfits – MSF have shown that they can take down teams that are performing on a top level, if Misfits can improve their consistency they could quickly become a much more formidable threat. Misfits are going to need to show some confidence as this day of performances could push them forward.

Flash Wolves LMS Team Logo LoLFlash Wolves – FW have been unable to take a victory, they’ve had an extremely hard time during the 2017 World Championship and it doesn’t look like they’re making much progress. Unless they can put on an entire day if perfect performances they could be looking at their exit, the pressure is on.

Prediction: Misfits Victory. Misfits have been able to put on stronger and more consistent performances so far, I expect them to continue this trend as this day of significance could push them onto the main stage.

Team WE vs. Team SoloMid Groupstage 2 LoL Worlds 2017
Match #2: League of Legends Team WE Logo LoL Worlds Team WE vs. Team SoloMid Team SoloMid MSI 2017 Team Logo

Start Time: October 14th, 01:00 AM PDT / 04:00 AM EDT / 10:00 CEST

Before we head into day 7, Team WE are sitting close to the top of the group and are looking to take the strongest and most formidable position. Team Solo Mid are close to contesting the position but this series will be their breaking point. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Saturday, October 14th, to find out!

League of Legends Team WE Logo LoLTeam WE – WE are sitting in a 3 way tie at the moment and if they want to take the best position in the group they’re going to have to prove that they’re the strongest and most consistent team. They’ve already managed to put on some if the strongest performances in their group, now they just need to do it with additional pressure.

Team Logo TSM NA LCS 2017Team SoloMid – TSM are also a part of the tie in this group, they’re battling for the top position and are trying to propel North America onto the main stage. They’ve had some strong performances but a few minor mistakes have held them back, if they can perform more consistently they could be looking at that top spot.

Prediction: Team SoloMid Victory. After taking a loss to Misfits I think Team Solo Mid are going to bounce back even stronger, I expect them to put on a day of exceptional performances and to do so they’re going to need to take down WE.

Team SoloMid vs. Flash Wolves Groupstage 2 LoL Worlds 2017
Match #5: Team SoloMid MSI 2017 Team Logo Team SoloMid vs. Flash Wolves Flash Wolves Team Logo IEM Katowice 2017

Start Time: October 14th, 04:00 AM PDT / 07:00 AM EDT / 13:00 CEST

There’s always an upset every year and if one if the games during day 7 is going to be shock to an audience it’s going to be this one. Team Solo Mid need a day of exceptional performances if they want to take the top spot but with the few issues they’ve shown it could be difficult. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Saturday, October 14th, to find out!

Team Logo TSM NA LCS 2017Team SoloMid – TSM are trying to claim the top spot but they’re stuck in a 3 way tie, even if they manage to take down the other team’s in the tie a single loss could destroy their chances at taking hat top spot. They’re going to need to be consistent, avoiding those small mistakes that they’ve previously made.

Flash Wolves LMS Team Logo LoLFlash Wolves – FW have been unable to take a single victory as we head into day 7 but they’ve always been able to pull off an upset in previous years. If they’re going to continue this pattern then they’re going to give TSM an exceptionally hard time during this series, it could be too late for them to progress though.

Prediction: Team Solo Mid Victory. Team Solo Mid have put on some exceptional performances so far and as long as they can avoid making those smaller mistakes I expect their higher level of play to carry them through this series.

Group Stage #2 – Day 2 of 4 – Friday, October 13th 

G2 Esports vs. Royal Never Give Up Groupstage 2 LoL Worlds 2017
Match #1: G2 Esports MSI 2017 Team Logo G2 Esports vs. Royal Never Give Up League of Legends Royal Never Give Up Logo LoL Worlds

Start Time: October 13th, 00:00 AM PDT / 03:00 AM EDT / 09:00 CEST

G2 Esports have had a fairly hard time in their group so far, they’ve made little progress and if they’re looking to make it into the main stage they’re going to need a day of exceptional performances. Royal Never Give Up are sitting undefeated at the top of their group but a few mistakes could have them declining quickly. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Friday, October 13th, to find out!

Team Logo G2 Esports EU LCS 2017G2 Esports – G2 have had a notably hard time so far, they’ve only been able to take down the wild card team and their other performances have been extremely lacking. If they’re unable to put on a string of exceptional performances they could be looking at their exit from the World Championship 2017.

Royal Never Give Up LPL Team Logo LoLRoyal Never Give Up – RNG have put on some fantastic performances so far and they’ve been performing consistently, if they can keep up the confidence and continue their strong performances they could be setting up for a comfortable entrance to the main stage, a few mistakes could be drastic though.

Prediction: Royal Never Give Up Victory. RNG are currently sitting at the top of the group and their string of strong performances only solidifies their strengths. I expect them to find comfortable leads and conquer G2 once again.

Samsung Galaxy vs. 1907 Fenerbahce Groupstage 2 LoL Worlds 2017
Match #2: League of Legends Samsung Galaxy Logo LoL Worlds Samsung Galaxy vs. 1907 Fenerbahce 1907 Fenerbahçe League of Legends Logo

Start Time: October 13th, 01:00 AM PDT / 04:00 AM EDT / 10:00 CEST

Samsun Galaxy are pushing for the top seed in the group but there are a few challenges in their way, they’ve put on some fantastic performances already but now the pressure is on. If the pressure gets to them at all then 1907 Fenerbahçe will definitely capitalize. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Friday, October 13th, to find out!

League of Legends Samsung Galaxy Logo LoLSamsung Galaxy – SSG are so close to the top position in the group, they’re already sitting in a fairly reliable position but with so many challenges being packet into a single day of performances their current score could drop quickly. Confidence and consistency are necessary, even small mistakes could cost them their position.

League of LEgends Fenerbahce Esport Logo LoL1907 Fenerbahçe – FB were unable to take a single victory during their 1st group round but now we’re reaching a speed round, if they can keep their morale up and perform on a consistent level they could be looking to capitalize on other team’s mistakes. They’re in a tough position but they’ll be looking to make the best of it.

Prediction: Samsung Galaxy Victory. SSG are pushing for a top position in the group and they’ve already put on strong performances, we’ve already seen that SSG are performing on a higher level than FB and I think SSG are going to prove it once again.

1907 Fenerbahce vs. G2 Esports Groupstage 2 LoL Worlds 2017
Match #5: 1907 Fenerbahçe League of Legends Logo 1907 Fenerbahce vs. G2 Esports G2 Esports MSI 2017 Team Logo

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

1907 Fenerbahçe have had a hard time in the group stage so far but they were able to show a lot of potential during their play-ins performances. If they can kick up a storm for just this single day they could quickly throw off the group scores, putting G2 in an even more difficult position. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Friday, October 13th, to find out!

League of LEgends Fenerbahce Esport Logo LoL1907 Fenerbahçe – FB have had a hard time so far but if they’re going to make an impact then it’s likely going to be when they’re facing off against G2. As we head into day 6, they’re the closest performing teams in the group and FB have shown the potential that could give G2 a hard time.

Team Logo G2 Esports EU LCS 2017G2 Esports – G2 are struggling to take a higher seed in their group and if they’re unable to push forward then they’ll be making an exit from the World Championship 2017 sooner than they’d like. They’re going to need a day of exceptional performances, this mean a convincing victory over FB; can they pull it off?

Prediction: G2 Esports Victory. G2 have struggled but if there’s any team in their group that they’re going to out on strong performances against it’s going to be FB. I expect them to show some European strength as they take an additional victory here.

Group Stage #2 – Day 1 of 4 – Thursday, October 12th 

Immortal vs. GIGABYTE Marines Groupstage 2 LoL Worlds 2017
Match #1: Immortals CSGO Team Logo Immortals vs. GIGABYTE Marines League of Legends GIGABYTE Marines Logo LoL Worlds

Start Time: October 12th, 00:00 AM PDT / 03:00 AM EDT / 09:00 CEST

Immortals have made their way into a strong position in their group already and if they can maintain their current level of performances they’re looking at a place on the big stage, a single mistake could throw them off though. We’ve already seen how punishing GAM can be, can they pull off something against IMT? Tune into the series when it goes live on Thursday, October 12th, to find out!

Team Logo Immortals NA LCS 2017Immortals – IMT have put on strong and consistent performances so far, they’ve made an impact in their group already and are sitting in a fairly stable position, a single mistake could have GAM pushing for their spot though. The pressure is on.

 

League of Legends GIGABYTE Marines Logo LoLGigabyte Marines – GAM have had a fairly hard time in the group so far but they’ve shown that if they can find a lead they can put on thrilling and extremely punishing performances. If they can find a way to pressure IMT they could be looking at a way on to the main stage.

Prediction: Immortals Victory. IMT have been more consistent so far and I think their level of performances have been strong than those if GAM. They’ve shown that they can perform well under pressure and I think their consistency will push them into leads, giving them the series.

GIGABYTE Marines vs. Fnatic Groupstage 2 LoL Worlds 2017
Match #5: League of Legends GIGABYTE Marines Logo LoL Worlds GIGABYTE Marines vs. Fnatic League of Legends Fnatic Logo LoL Worlds

Start Time: October 12th, 04:00 AM PDT / 07:00 AM EDT / 13:00 CEST

Fnatic have had a considerably hard time during the group stage so far, the World Championship 2017 has proven challenging for them and if they can’t make quick progress they’ll be looking at a fast exit. Their previous battle had the Gigabyte Marines showing some serious dominance, can GAM show some consistency and do it again? Tune into the series when it goes live on Thursday, October 12th, to find out!

Team Logo Fnatic EU LCS 2017Fnatic – FNC have been having an extremely hard time, they’ve shown some potential but unless they can keep their cool and out on some consistently strong performances they’re already looking at leaving the stage. This is an opportunity for them to shine, if they can’t thrive here then they’re only going to find more issues.

League of Legends GIGABYTE Marines Logo LoLGigabyte Marines – GAM put on some extremely dominant performances against Fnatic previously and they were able to pressure the top side of the map in an extremely effective way. It looked like their style was inspired by Longzhu during their Playoff games and if they can pull it off more they could be looking at a way on to the big stage.

Prediction: Fnatic Victory. With all of the commotion that was caused before I think Fnatic are going to find more comfort for their top Lane player, this will help them work against the previous strategy used against them and I think they’re more likely to find leads using conventional macro management. It’ll be tough, but I expect Fnatic to push back here.

Immortals vs Longzhu Gaming Groupstage 2 LoL Worlds 2017
Match #6: Immortals CSGO Team Logo Immortals vs. Longzhu Gaming League of Legends Longhzu Gaming Logo LoL Worlds

Start Time: October 12th, 05:00 AM PDT / 08:00 AM EDT / 14:00 CEST

Longzhu Gaming are currently at the top of the group and their closest current challenger is Immortals. LZ have shown phenomenal form throughout all stages of the game and if they can maintain some form of consistency their high performance level will pose a problem for all other competing teams. IMT are looking for a way on top, to do that they’ll need to take a win here. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Thursday, October 12th, to find out!

Team Logo Immortals NA LCS 2017Immortals – IMT need to find a way on top of this if they want to equalize their head to head with LZ, this will open up the opportunity for them to take the top position in the group but will also help them find a more defining position in the group. Can they pull it off?

 

LongZhu Gaming LCK Team Logo LoLLongzhu Gaming – LZ have put on extremely high level performances and so far it’s carried them to the top of their group, if they can maintain their composure and continue to pump out these consistent performances they’re going to be an extremely formidable Titan during this tournament.

Prediction: Longzhu Gaming Victory. Immortals have the potential to put up a fight here but with how strong and consistent Longzhu have been I expect them to find their leads and come out on top, other competing teams have barely been a challenge for them so far and I think their strengths will continue to shine.

Group Stage #2 – Day 4 of 4 – Sunday, October 15th 

ahq e-Sports Club vs. SK Telecom T1 Groupstage 2 LoL Worlds 2017
Match #1: Team ahq e Sports Club LoL Worlds ahq e-Sports Club vs. SK Telecom T1 SK Telecom T1 MSI 2017 Team Logo

Start Time: October 15th, 00:00 AM PDT / 03:00 AM EDT / 09:00 CEST

AHQ have put on some acceptable performances but now we’re reaching a breaking point. In this final day of group stage performances AHQ are looking for an additional step forward whilst SKT are looking to solidify their position at the top of the group. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Sunday, October 15th, to find out!

ahq e-Sports Club LMS Team Logo LoLAHQ Esports Club – AHQ are trying to push for a stronger position but they’ve been unable to out on the necessary performances so far. During such a tense day it’s possible they’re going to find an environment to thrive but they’ve got many challenges ahead of them.

SK Telecom T1 LCK Team Logo LoLSK Telecom T1 – SKT are currently sitting at the top of their group and they’ve put on some very convincing performances. They’re yet to drop a series but as we head into a long day of performances their stamina and stability is going to be tested.

Prediction: SK Telecom T1 Victory. SK Telecom T1 has put on some exceptional performances so far and they’ve always proven to have good consistency when the pressure is on. During such a pivotal day I expect SK Telecom T1 to push for that top spot in the group, taking down AHQ on their way.

 

SK Telecom T1 vs. Cloud9 Groupstage 2 LoL Worlds 2017
Match #4: Cloud9 Team Logo dota2 Cloud9 vs. SK Telecom T1 SK Telecom T1 MSI 2017 Team Logo

Start Time: October 15th, 03:00 AM PDT / 06:00 AM EDT / 12:00 CEST

Cloud 9 are pushing for a seed out if their group but during such an important day there could be a few mistakes, these mistakes could quickly fade their ambitions. SK Telecom T1 are pushing for the top position in the group but if they have issues against C9 they could have a troubling day. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Sunday, October 15th, to find out!

Team Logo Cloud9 NA LCS 2017Cloud9 – C9 have put on some strong performances so far and if they’re looking for a way out if the group they’re on the right path. They’ve managed to find a fairly stable position and if they can maintain consistently strong performances they should be able to make it to the main stage.

SK Telecom T1 – SKT are in a strong position at the top of their group and are looking to take the highest possible seed onto the main stage, they’re going to need to keep up their high level of play and will need to maintain their consistency but they’ve already shown the potential.

Prediction: SK Telecom T1 Victory. SKT have already been able to take down every other performing team in their group. I expect that their performances during such an important day will only be stronger and more consistency, once again pushing them ahead of C9.

SK Telecom T1 vs. EDward Gaming Groupstage 2 LoL Worlds 2017
Match #6: SK Telecom T1 MSI 2017 Team Logo SK Telecom T1 vs. EDward Gaming League of Legends EDward Gaming Logo LoL Worlds

Start Time: October 15th, 05:00 AM PDT / 08:00 AM EDT / 14:00 CEST

SK Telecom T1 are sitting at the top of the group as we head into the stressful day 8, EDG are in a contrasting position as they’re at the bottom of the group without a single series victory to their name. EDG are pushing to make an impact whilst SKT are looking to solidify their position. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Sunday, October 15th, to find out!

SK Telecom T1 – SKT are already at the top of the group, all they need to do now is maintain their consistency and avoid making mistakes. They’re already looking at taking the top spot in the group and as long as they can maintain their current level of play they should be able to secure it.

League of Legends EDward Gaming Logo LoLEdward Gaming – EDG have been unable to take a single series victory as we head into day 8 of the group stage, they’re sitting by the bottom of the group and their chances at progressing are wearing thin. If they’re looking to make an impact then this could be a major series for them to throw off the standings.

Prediction: SK Telecom T1 Victory. SKT have already shown that they can I’ve come challenges, they’ve already taken the position at the top of the group and I don’t think EDG will cause many issues during this series. I expect the superior shown skill level and consistency of SKT to put them ahead in this series.
