Predictions for LoL European Championship Qualifier

Predictions for LoL European Championship Qualifier

Published 2020-09-27 19:09

Here’s our take on the European League of Legends teams that have qualified directly to the main event of the LoL world championships.


G2 Esports

Last year’s beaten finalists G2 Esports will not want to let such a golden opportunity slip passed them again. Finishing as the top seed from a very competitive European championship they were made fight to the last minute by Fnatic.

The same roster as last year with the only change being Caps and Perkz swapping the ADC and Mid positions a few times. Caps came away with the MVP award so not the worst swap in history, but this flexibility in the two main carry roles will be a major asset at worlds. Though an over reliance on Caps did appear towards the end of the summer split its tough to say if it was over reliance or Caps was just playing at another level compared everyone else, team-mate or enemy.

Suggested Betting: Caps for worlds MVP

Fnatic

The only European world champions Fnatic are probably a bit tired of seeing G2 Esports at the top of Europe so often now. Coming in as EU’s second seed is no shame but the nature of the finals will not please them. Having beaten G2 Esports 3-2 in the semi-finals to lose to them 3-0 after G2 qualified via the losers’ bracket the loss will have stung. Expect them to come back stringer, as Fnatic always do.

With s very experienced roster all eyes will, as they always are, on ADC Rekkles. Now the main shot caller on the squad he has been excellent in the current meta of supporting ADCs. Though questions will be asked of their coaching and analyst staff if they get consistently out-drafted as they did against G2 Esports in the LEC finals. It’s tough to be in a losing position before the game has even started.

Suggested Betting: Opposition to get first blood. Fnatic tend to start slow but work their way into the game with better objective control.

Rogue

Rogue had a tough start to life in the LEC going 0-8 in their first 8 games of the 2019 spring split, but faith in their academy team meant some promotions and tough decisions for the main team resulted in them winning some matches and being much better prepared for the 2020 season. The won the 2020 summer regular season and only lost in the playoffs against Fnatic and G2 Esports, cementing their place as the third best team from Europe.

Another team with an experienced roster, many of their players have the experience required for playing on the grandest of stages. Though if this experience is enough is yet to be seen as they could not overcome Fnatic or G2 in best of 5 series.

Suggested Betting: Not to get out of group stage.

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.
