What to expect: Worlds semifinals

Worlds semifinale

Hey everyone,

I hope all of you have been watching worlds so far? Yes? Good!
Because we had some pretty awesome plays and some epic comebacks like FNATIC going 0-3 in week 1 and then 4-1 in the second week:

SKT’s epic combo to overcome a 10k gold deficit:

Or IgNar’s fervor Leona:

The worlds semifinals

But enough of the past, let’s take a look at the future:

SKT vs. RNG

The game starts Saturday, OCT 28 AT 9:30 AM CEST

Every time those two teams met so far, SKT had the upper hand. This time it could be much closer than the years before though because SKT didn’t seem to be as strong as before when they played against Misfits. RNG, on the other hand, didn’t show off in the quarterfinals as well, making sloppy mistakes and slow calls. In the end, SKT never lost a best of 5 at worlds so far and it will probably stay that way. Our guess: 3-2 for SKT!

SSG vs WE

The game starts Sunday, OCT 29 AT 8:30 AM CEST

While RNG and SKT didn’t get the chance to convince us with their play at World 2017 Samsung Galaxy and Team WE definitely did. Samsung swept the number one seat from Korea with a convincing 3-0 victory and Team WE surprised with their early game starts in group stages. They didn’t show a perfect performance in the quarterfinals and seem to have lost some of their strengths of Group stages though. It will be interesting to see if Samsung can handle the early game strategies.
Our guess: 3-1 for SSG!

It’s definitely going to be an exciting weekend and who knows… maybe we have another upset and we finally see a final without a Korean team? What do you think? Let’s go Worlds!
