Predictions for the LoL Championship Korea Qualifiers

Predictions for the LoL Championship Korea Qualifiers

Published 2020-09-21 19:37

Our look at the Korean League of Legends teams that have qualified directly to the main event of the LoL world championships. While we have no Faker this year you can always count on the Korean teams to be in contention near the end of the tournament.

DAMWON Gaming:

Damwon Gaming are appearing at worlds for the second year running though this year they have qualified without needing the Play-Ins and are even the top Korean seed for this year’s tournament. Having gotten to the quarter finals last year the sting of the loss to G2 Esports is sure to still be felt.

After a disappointing spring split and Mid-Season cup they parted ways with their head coach and made Zefa sole head coach. The move worked as they went 16-2 in the regular season and didn’t drop a map in the play-offs. They have shown good form at the best of times and it’s tough to look at anyone else as the potential champions.

Suggested Betting: Damwon to win Worlds 2020

DRX:

DRX were the surprised package in this year’s LCK going 15-3 in the regular season and were unluckly not to finish first, losing only to an incredible run by Damwon Gaming. A relatively young roster they will be looking to ADC Deft to steady the nerves on the world’s stage. Deft having played in multiple word championships finishing 3rd with Samsung Blue in 2014.

Consistency will be key for DRX as they beat many top teams but lost maps against too many teams that they should have beaten, this resulted in them losing a seeding for the play-off finals and though they made the final perhaps the extra preparation time may have meant them getting the Korean first seed. So while they can beat anyone on their day they can also be beaten by anyone, and are particularly susceptible to poke comps.

Suggested Betting: Dropping maps against weaker teams is a high possibility with DRX.

Gen.G:

The T1 killers, Gen.G will have the unfortunate honour of being the least popular team at worlds this year as they defeated Fakers’ T1 to make it to the world championships this year. While beating a fan favourite will not get you many fans I doubt this roster will care too much. A complete change of the roster in 2019 with the sole aim of becoming the best the results have not been as good as expected for such a talented group.

Though where there is talent there is potential, having consistently out-drafted their opponents during the regular season, play-offs and the regional finals Gen.G will hope to use the down time before worlds to sharpen their team fighting and shot calling which has let them down on a few occasions this season. If they can clean up this element of play they could be a serious contender for the championship.

Suggested Betting: To make it to semi-finals, they can beat any team if they are on form and the most recent annihilation of T1 suggests they are finding form at just the right time.
