The League of Legends World Championships will continue at a rapid pace with another round of fixtures on Wednesday. Here is a breakdown of two matches along with some betting suggestions for Picklebet.
Fnatic had a middling summer split in the LEC, winning 11 of their 18 matches to finish fifth in the regular season. They were forced to improvise their style of playing in Summoner’s Rift after the departure of Rekkles to G2. However, they also acquired some star power in a tripartite deal. While they are not at their strongest without the LEC’s best player and former bot laner in Rekkles, there is still enough depth and strength in their line-up to continue to make a strong impact at Worlds, including in this match against PSG Talon.
Upset was in splendid form in the summer season of the LEC this year. He had five kills per map along with 5.89 assists at a KDA of 9.33, comfortably the highest in his team. He also led Fnatic in creep score, with 310.83. Nisqy and Bwipo also had a kill participation rate of over 10. Nisqy chipped in with 4.39 kills and 6.39 assists at a KDA of 3.88. Nisqy’s KDA was second best in Fnatic.
T1 Esports (1.27)
T1 started their Worlds campaign with a win against Detonation FocusMe, which will fill them with plenty of confidence and momentum because that will put them on course to advance to the next stage. T1 have been one of the better teams in the LCK for a while now as evidenced by their recent record as well as historical form back in their local league. 100 Thieves overachieved in the LCS, which might give them some fluency, but there is a personnel and depth mismatch in this game, which should result in a comfortable win for T1.
Oner had a splendid start to his Worlds campaign, with 11 kills, 6 assists and just 1 death at a KDA of 17. Canna, Faker and Keria chipped in with a combined 10 kills between them, which helped T1 with enough offensive firepower in the lanes in the opener.
