On August 27, one more Korean team will get a spot at Worlds and it will either be former World Champions SKT T1 K or Samsung Galaxy White formerly known as Ozone. Due to their current circuit points, both teams are eligible to get a spot at the World Finals but still, they need to beat one another to get that spot. (The first Worlds spot was taken by Samsung Blue during the OGN Summer Finals) Historically, there just too much going on with SKT T1 K and Samsung White that they are two of the best teams in Korea right now. The winner will go on to become the second team to represent the Korean region during LoL Worlds 2014 while the loser will head to the Regionals to join Najin White Shield, KT Rolster Bullets and Arrows in a do or die battle for the last OGN spot at the League of Legends World Championship 2014.

OGN Regionals Tiebreaker | Preview and Betting Prediction
SK Telecom T1 K vs. Samsung White (0 : 3)
(Aug 27th, 2:30 PDT/ 5:30 EDT/ 11:30 CEST)
The history between both teams have been nothing short of spectacular. During the OGN Spring of 2013, White bested SKT T1 K in a 2-0 match and once against destroyed K in a 3-1 match up. White also defeated K in the Asian Games in Incheon as well as in Intel AMD. However, SKT T1 K finally grabbed the top spot when they destroyed White in the semifinals with a score of 3-1 and then took the top spot by sweeping the game against White in a 3-0 score. During the Spring split of OGN 2014, Dade moved to their sister team Blue while Pawn was moved to White. This allowed them to beat K once again at the Round of 8 with a score of 3-1. And in OGN Summer Round of 8, White once again smashed K with a 3-1 score.
Samsung White has had 17 wins and 10 losses to SKT T1 K overall and in terms of series wins, White has won 7 times and lost only twice to the top team. In fact, they are the only team in OGN history to have met in a best of five series for 5 seasons in a row. This will be the tenth time that the teams will meet each other and they have played past 30 games against each other. Now, it looks like Samsung White is the prime winner of this matchup considering their history against SKT T1 K but recent issues with White especially with DanDy and the coaches will take its toll on the team by the time they need to get a win. Will this be enough for SKT T1 K to snag a victory against their long time rival and get back to Worlds or will they be thrown to the Regionals wherein they will face more adversaries and difficulties in getting back to the Worlds Stage?
Prediction: Samsung White clearly has more to show now that they had in Season 3. 3-2 for White.
