Predictions: LoL World Championship Play-In Teams

Published 2020-09-27 16:49

Our first look at the teams who have qualified for the LoL World Championship Play-In stage. These teams will have to fight tooth and nail to earnt the right to compete in the main tournament. We will look at each teams form and expected results.


LGD Gaming

China’s 4th seed coming into this year’s championships LGD Gaming are the perennial underachievers in China, a strong roster including ex SKT1 Jungler Peanut a lot is expect from this team. Having barely qualified for the Play-Ins strong form towards the end of the season mean that they may be peaking at the right time. Expect a strong early game push to try and close the game out early as is the current meta in China.

Suggested Betting: 2-0 win in every play-in game, they should steamroll this portion of the tournament.

MAD Lions

MAD Lions, formerly Splyce Gaming have a lot of experience in Worlds, having qualified in 2016, their Rookie year the newly rebranded team will be hoping for a run that saw them get to the quarter finals last year. While the roster has changed significantly they have picked up the playmaking support Kaiser expect a lot of their action to revolve around his roaming and plays in bot lane. Though Europe’s 4th seed the strength of the LEC this year means this is not an indictment on their ability.

Suggested Betting: First Blood, from Kaiser and Shad0w early game play making.

Unicorns of Love

The Unicorns of Love felt hard done by not being accepted into the 2020 LEC and so went on an absolute tear in the LCL losing only 1 game in the Summer Split and qualifying easily for the worlds Play-In stage. The roster still has the core that lost out to splice in last year’s Worlds Play-In final round they will surely have the form and desire to go 1 step further this year.

Expect these guys to come in with some never before seen strategies to catch out the supposedly better teams.

Suggested Betting: As an all or nothing team their matches have a good chance of going to the third map decider.

PSG Talon

The Pacific Championship Series second place team have the backing of French football team Paris St Germain. A strong team with an inexperienced roster it remains to be seen if they can handle the pressure of the big stage. Early indications suggest they are not with their form tailing at the end of the summer split finishing with a 0-3 loss in the finals. With only 1 player having experience on the world’s stage the pressure may be a bit too much for this young team.

Suggested Betting: These guys will lose maps and games to the supposed weaker teams and can be good value to lay against.

Rainbow 7

The absolute dominators of the Latin American LoL scene Rainbow 7 have won the last 9 LatAm championships… or put another way, every single one since the championship was formed. However their prowess at a local level is yet to translate to the international scene. They will want to show that they can keep up with the other regions. This year is probably too early to make an impression but hopefully they can build on the experience they get.

Suggested Betting: It’s tough to see them even win a map against the more established teams. Though a sneaky win against an out of form higher seed is not beyond the realms of possibility.

Or else spending hours deck building in Hearthstone or Magic the Gathering: Arena. Though he still finds plenty of time to try not feed in League of Legends.
