The LoL Worlds 2017 is slowly but surely coming to an end, only three matches are left on the schedule. But first of all, it’s time to enjoy the Semifinals, even though the two European teams did not make it past the Quarterfinals. Surprisingly, co-favorite Longzhu had to leave the tournament with a 3-0 defeat against Samsung Galaxy, which means that the signs point to a repeat of last year’s final game SKT vs. SSG. But especially the LPL participant Royal Never Give Up wants to do everything in their power to prevent this and to dethrone the reigning world champion SK Telecom T1 in the Semifinals. The Chinese had a harder time than they expected in the Quarterfinals against Fnatic, but they still see themselves as having a chance to be become officially the best team in the world. The Semifinal matches will take place on October 28 and October 29 in Shanghai.

Start Time: October 28th, 12:30 AM PDT / 03:30 AM EDT / 09:30 CEST

The quarterfinals this year were some of the closes games we’ve seen in a long time, SK Telecom T1 had great difficulty taking down Misfits but managed to take the top spot with a few clutch plays. Royal Never Give Up had a more convincing series but how well will they perform against a stronger team? Tune into the series when it goes live on Saturday, October 28th, to find out!

Royal Never Give Up LPL Team Logo LoLRoyal Never Give Up – RNG managed to put on some strong performances when they were facing off against Fnatic and it was one of the cleaner series of the quarterfinals, facing off against a team like SKTT1 will bring more challenges though.

SK Telecom T1 LCK Team Logo LoLSK Telecom T1 – SKTT1 had a hard time adapting to the performances of Misfits but now they’re facing off against a team that have adapted a similar style of macro management. This is often where SKTT1 can thrive but RNG could bring a few surprises.

Prediction: SK Telecom T1 Victory. When a series is broken down to ‘what team can macro better’ SK Telecom T1 often take the lead, it’s their mastered style of play and they’re often able to find leads in odd situations. I think they’ll find a few comfortable leads and come out on top of the series but they’re going to have some trouble on the way.

Semifinals – Day 2 – Sunday, October 29th 

Team WE vs. Samsung Galaxy Semifinals LoL Worlds 2017

Start Time: October 29th, 12:30 AM PDT / 03:30 AM EDT / 08:30 CET

Team WE had a difficult time during their series against Cloud 9 but it gave us a pretty epic series to watch, it could mean trouble for Team WE as we’re moving forward now though. Samsung Galaxy crushed their series against Longzhu and managed to surprise an array of people but can they pull it off again? Tune into the series as it goes live on Sunday, October 29th, to find out!

League of Legends Team WE Logo LoLTeam WE – WE had a hard time in their series against Cloud 9 and now they’ve got an even bigger challenge coming their way. They’re going to need to adapt with significant speed if they want to keep up with SSG but they’ve shown great potential so far.

League of Legends Samsung Galaxy Logo LoLSamsung Galaxy – SSG managed to crush Longzhu Gaming in their quarterfinals series and the strengths that SSG managed to show were profound. They were able to stay steps ahead of their opponent at all times and if they can pull off something similar here they could be looking at another boast of strength.

Prediction: Samsung Galaxy Victory. Samsung Galaxy managed to take down one of the fan favorites and they did so with speed and precision, they managed to show a significant amount of strength which I believe will push them ahead of Team WE and will give SSG the series.
