HLE vs. AF
Coming into the Summer Split, Hanwha Life had high hopes, but they have just flat out not looked good. HLE is last in every stat category and the problem with this team is that they are switching out their top and jungler constantly. They have no stability in their lineup and this is a big problem moving forward until they can settle on one. No consistency means no games will be won. AF came across two of the best teams in the league and played them pretty well. AF have the best first-blood rate and second best mid-game rating in the league, and the only way this team loses is if they lose early. This matchup though should be easy as AF is good at scaling and mitigating the early game pressure for the most part. A team like HLE with no sense of direction will not be coordinated enough to pull a strategy like this.
Prediction: AF 2-0
AF Players to Target: Everyone
OMG vs. RW
I would call this game a toilet bowl game, but as bad as it sounds, OMG has looked good in recent form. Rogue Warriors are back to subbing guys in and out every game and every series, which is the biggest flaw for this team. Coaches don't understand that no matter
