League of Legends Icon Play-In Stage #2 – Preview & Predictions

Match C

1907 Fenerbahce Esport vs. Team oNe eSports Play In Knockout Stage LoL Worlds 2017
1907 Fenerbahçe League of Legends Logo 1907 Fenerbahce Esport vs. Team oNe Esports League of Legends Team oNe eSports Logo LoL Worlds

Start Time: September 29th, 08:00 PM PDT / 11:00 PM EDT / 05:00 CEST

1907 Fenerbahçe have made waves, some of their performances have been spectacular and there’s a lot of discussion following their showcased strength. They managed to push to the 1st seed in their group and have run into few issues. Team oNe Esports had a few issues getting out of the initial play-ins phase and were sitting with a 2:3 score, now there’s a lot on the line so they’re going to have to step up. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Friday, September 29th, to find out!

League of LEgends Fenerbahce Esport Logo LoL1907 Fenerbahçe – FB have had a significant impact so far, they have climbed to the top of their group and they’ve ran into very few issues. After only dropping a single game there has been a lot of discussion surrounding FB and their current level of performance, if they can maintain their consistency they’re going to be a constant threat.

League of Legends Team oNe eSports Logo LoLTeam oNe Esports – oNe have had a fairly hard time in their group but they’ve been up against some extremely difficult opponents, if they can play consistently and capitalise on their advantages they could give FB an extremely difficult time in this series.

Prediction: 1907 Fenerbahçe Victory. 1907 Fenerbahçe have put on consistently strong performances and have managed to dominate their group, I think their consistency will carry over into a best-of-5 series and will give them the advantage they need to get on top of oNe.

Match D

Team WE vs. Young Generation Play In Knockout Stage LoL Worlds 2017
League of Legends Team WE Logo LoL Worlds Team WE vs. Young Generation Young Generation GPL Logo

Start Time: September 29th, 01:00 AM PDT / 04:00 AM EDT / 10:00 CEST

Team WE have been a dominant force in the play-ins so far. They’re one of the favourite teams for the tournament at the moment and their performances are definitely reflecting that. YG have had a fairly hard time in their group but have shown a lot of promise. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Friday, September 29th, to find out!

League of Legends Team WE Logo LoLTeam WE – WE have been a dominating force during the World Championship 2017 so far, they’ve crushed their way through the play-ins and are unlikely to slow down. They’re currently undefeated in their group and will be looking to crush their way onto the main stage.

Young Generation GPL League of Legends LogoYoung Generation – YG have put on some plausible performances, they had a hard time making it out of the initial group stage but were able to hold their own against the likes of Fnatic. If they can maintain their strong performances and avoid their minor mistakes they’re definitely going to make an impact.

Prediction: Team WE Victory. Team WE have shown stronger macro management and I think their team fighting has been more dominant, they’ve shown greater strengths throughout all stages of the game and I expect them to find a confident lead to take the series.

Match A

Cloud9 vs. Lyon Gaming Play-In Knockout Stage LoL Worlds 2017
Cloud9 Team Logo dota2 Cloud9 vs. Lyon Gaming League of Legends Lyons Gaming Logo LoL Worlds

Start Time: September 28th, 08:00 PM PDT / 11:00 PM EDT / 05:00 CEST

Cloud 9 has put on a mass of strong performances so far and they’re sitting undefeated at the top of group B. They’ll be facing off against Lyon Gaming, who’ve taken 2nd place in Group A. Lyon still have a lot to prove and if they’re going to show up then it has to be now. This series will define which team is able to progress, who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Thursday, September 28th, to find out!

Team Logo Cloud9 NA LCS 2017Cloud9 – C9 are sitting undefeated at the top of their group, they’ve consistently put on strong performances and are looking to take their position on the main stage. They’ve worked hard to progress this far but they’ve still got some challenges ahead.

 

League of Legends Lyons Gaming Logo LoLLyon Gaming – Lyon have put on some strong performances, they’ve been fairly consistent but have had trouble keeping up with some of the top performing teams. They’ve had a fairly difficult time with Team WE but they’re currently one of the fan favourites, Lyon have a lot going for them and I think they’re going to put on some significant performances.

Prediction: Cloud 9 Victory. Even though C9 are sitting in a significantly stronger position I still expect them to run into some trouble during this series. Their macro management and superior map control are strong points for them to find leads along with the series.

Match B

Fnatic vs. Hong Kong Attitude Play-In Knockout Stage LoL Worlds 2017
League of Legends Fnatic Logo LoL Worlds Fnatic vs. Hong Kong Attitude League of Legends Hong Kong Logo LoL Worlds

Start Time: September 28th, 01:00 AM PDT / 04:00 AM EDT / 10:00 CEST

Fnatic have been pushing, they’re on a strong climb but have shown some fault. They fell in a recent game that could have been theirs if they had slightly more confidence. When facing off against HK Attitude there’s little room for error, they will relentlessly pressure. Who will come out on top? Tune into the game when it goes live on Thursday, September 28th, to find out!

Team Logo Fnatic EU LCS 2017Fnatic – FNC is looking fairly strong but a few mistakes have already cost them a game, if they continue to make these small errors then they’re only going to encounter more issues. Their bottom lane has had some trouble recently; if they can find a good pace they’re definitely going to be more on form.

Hong Kong Attitude LPL League of Legends LogoHK Attitude – HKA managed to take a fairly strong position in their group, they only dropped a few games but have put on some convincing performances. If they can play with a significant amount of confidence and gain tempo in the earlier stages of the game they could pose a huge problem for Fnatic.

Prediction: Fnatic Victory. Fnatic have likely learned from their previous mistake, they’ve shown great improvement recently in terms of their macro management and composition development and I think this will propel them ahead in this series.
