- 5:00 a.m. Unicorns of Love vs. SuperMassive
LGD vs. LGC
I don't get why people think this will be a close game because even though LGD has looked bad in all the best-of-ones, they showed dominance over Rainbow7 in the best-of-five. The one thing about teams in the LCK and LPL region is they consistent practice playing series that extend longer than one match. This comes into play with drafts set ups, how a team can adapt mid series and the mental focus to be ready for a long game. LGD certainly looks like its on the same page, particularly with Peanut helping carry the team in the early game and being very proactive in the mid to late around objectives to help secure them a win. LGD have the better players overall and with how slow Legacy's early game is, if LGD can punish and snowball them like they did all the LPL and against Rainbow7, this game will be a quick 3-0.
Prediction: LGD 3-0
LGD Players to Target: Everyone
SUP vs. UoL
This is going to be the most interesting game on the slate because we have two teams coming from smaller regions competing to make it onto the big stage. Unicorns of Love went 3-1 in their group and dropped the tie-breaking game to PSG. UoL are like LGD where they need the early game to go well in order for them to snowball teams and
