VG vs. V5
I thought VG were going to be better coming into the split, especially by adding Leyan,s who played for one of the best team in the LPL. Leyan finally gets the start and it will be interesting to see how he jungles, as he wasn't that viable for IG. I believe the play-style that Leyan wants to play will work with VG since he loves to roam bot side. VG are at the bottom in every category and KKoma seems like he doesn't have a good grasp on how this meta is supposed to be played. Meanwhile, V5 have made some mistakes in a few of their games, but the one thing they do best is they are decisive in everything they do. They like to push the tempo, and even when things are failing, they will take that five percent chance to swing the game around. V5 are in the top half in a lot of the objective categories, and this is a case of a team that has looked good since the start.
Prediction: V5 2-1
V5 Players to Target: SamD ($6,800), Ppgod ($5,200)
