Quarterfinals LoL Worlds 2017 – Preview and Predictions



The Group Stage of the LoL World Championship 2017 has already spoiled us with a lot of excitement and brilliant games, but now it’s getting serious for the teams on their way to the World Championship title. Only the best two teams from each group will participate in this exclusive Knockout Stage, which starts with the Quarter-finals. While the Best-of-1 format was played in the Group Stage, the Quarter-finals will be played in the best of 5, which means that the teams will have to perform consistently over several games in order to make it through this round and not be able to make it through just by luck. Of course, all eyes are on the South Korean teams SK Telecom T1 and Longzhu Gaming, as the favourites for the tournament’s victory should not encounter serious problems in the next round. In the Quarter-finals the two teams will not be able to meet each other yet, but in the Semi-finals this is quite possible.

Day 1 Day 2 Day 3 Day 4

Quarterfinals – Day 4 – Sunday, October 22th 

Team WE vs. Cloud9 Quarterfinals LoL Worlds 2017
Match #4: League of Legends Team WE Logo LoL Worlds Team WE vs. Cloud9 Team Logo dota2 Cloud9

Start Time: October 20th, 01:00 AM PDT / 04:00 AM EDT / 10:00 CEST

Cloud 9 had a hard time making it out of the group stage, they ended up proceeding to the Quarterfinals with a 3:3 series score but had a few close calls on their way. Team WE had a much more convincing process to proceed and took a 5:1 series score but can they maintain their composure? Tune into the series when it goes live on Sunday, October 22nd, to find out!

League of Legends Team WE Logo LoLTeam WE – WE were able to put on stronger performances and were able to take more convincing victories in comparison to their opponents here but if they can’t maintain their consistency or they let up to the pressures of the main stage their hopes of more progress could quickly fade.

Team Logo Cloud9 NA LCS 2017Cloud9 – C9 should be ready to apply some pressure but as their fellow North American team’s performances are dwindling they could be feeling a lack of morale. If they can maintain their confidence and play to their strengths they could quickly show Team WE, and other regions, what they’re made of.

Prediction: Team WE Victory. Team WE have already shown greater strength and consistency, I think Cloud 9 will push Team WE to their current limits but I expect WE to find a way out on top through superior control and through punishing the minor mistakes of C9.

Quarterfinals – Day 3 – Saturday, October 21th 

Royal Never Give Up vs. Fnatic Quartefinals LoL Worlds 2017
Match #3: League of Legends Royal Never Give Up Logo LoL Worlds RNG vs.  League of Legends Fnatic Logo LoL Worlds Fnatic

Start Time: October 20th, 01:00 AM PDT / 04:00 AM EDT / 10:00 CEST

Fnatic had a notably hard time during the first round of the group stage, they were having issues with every passing match but managed to push forward and through to the Quarterfinals. Royal Never Give Up contrasted this by dominating their group and taking a 5:1 series victory. Fnatic will be looking to prove their strengths now though. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Saturday, October 21st, to find out!

Royal Never Give Up LPL Team Logo LoLRoyal Never Give Up – After putting on sets of strong performances during the group stage, RNG are looking to progress to a much more formidable position during this tournament. Their region has had a difficult time in previous years but RNG could bring a spark that pushes them forward.

Team Logo Fnatic EU LCS 2017Fnatic – FNC had a difficult time during the group stage but during the second week they were able to push forward, if their consistency is lacking they might be looking at a quick exit though. I they’re looking to climb further than previous years they’re going to need to make quick adaptions.

Prediction: Royal Never Give Up Victory. I think Fnatic will give us a good series, plenty of action and possibly a few close moments, but I expect Royal Never Give Up to come out on top because of the strengths they’ve already shown. Their consistency has been strong and I expect it to remain so, as they take another series and progress through the tournament.

Quarterfinals – Day 2 – Friday, October 20th 

SK Telecom T1 vs. Misfits Quarterfinals LoL Worlds 2017
Match #2: SK Telecom T1 MSI 2017 Team Logo SK Telecom T1 vs. Misfits EU LCS Team Logo LoL Misfits

Start Time: October 20th, 01:00 AM PDT / 04:00 AM EDT / 10:00 CEST

The defending champions, SK Telecom T1, managed to put on strong performances during the group stage and were able to proceed without much trouble. Misfits earlier performances were questionable but they were able to adapt and push through to the main stage. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Friday, October 20th, to find out!

SK Telecom T1 LCK Team Logo LoLSK Telecom T1 – SKTT1 are the defending champions and so far they have been able to show a lot of strengths, unlike previous years though they have faced some earlier challenges. SKTT1 are now facing challenges with every additional step, can they defend their title?

Misfits EU LCS 2017 Team LogoMisfits – MSF managed to claw their way through the group stage and were able to overcome a number of obstacles, their earlier performances were lacking but with quick adaptions they were able to push forward. In such a drawn out series they could show some strength but will it be enough?

Prediction: SK Telecom T1 Victory. SK Telecom T1 have got a lot on the line here so I expect them to out on some if their best performances yet, they were able to show more strength and consistency in the group stages of the World Championship 2017 and I expect it to aid them on their way through this series.

Quarterfinals – Day 1 – Thursday, October 19th 

Samsung Galaxy vs. Longzhu Gaming Quarterfinals LoL Worlds 2017
Match #1: League of Legends Longhzu Gaming Logo LoL Worlds Longzhu Gaming vs. League of Legends Samsung Galaxy Logo LoL Worlds Samsung Galaxy

Start Time: October 19th, 01:00 AM PDT / 04:00 AM EDT / 10:00 CEST

Longzhu had a phenomenal set of performances during the group stage and were able to take an outstanding 6:0 series score. Samsung Galaxy were able to put on some strong performances of their own but challenges had them falling to a 4:2 series score. Who will progress? Tune into the series when it goes live on Thursday, October 19th, to find out!

League of Legends Longhzu Gaming Logo LoLLongzhu Gaming – LZ put on some staggering performances and were able to prove their strengths over other competitors in their group, if they can maintain their high level of play I expect they’ll reach far in the remainder of the tournament.

 

League of Legends Samsung Galaxy Logo LoLSamsung Galaxy – SSG may not have taken a perfect series score during their group stage but they were able to show some great adaption and skill, they’re going to prove a challenge to overcome as they’re quick to react and know how to punish mistakes made by their opponents.

Prediction: Longzhu Gaming Victory. Samsung Galaxy are going to put up a fight during this series and I think they’ll cause some challenges for Longzhu. Longzhu have shown a greater a more diverse strength which I expect will give them more advantages and will eventually push them on top of the series.
