Worlds 2017

play-in starts in about 6hours

Main Event:
starts October 5th

Group A
Edward Gaming
SK Telecom T1
AHQ

Group B
Longzhu
Immortals
Gigabyte Marines

Group C
G2
Samsung
Royal Never Give Up

Group D
Flash Wolves
Misfits
TSM

The 4th team in each group qualifies through the play in phase

Play-in:
the 3rd seed from China, NA, EU and LMS play the top teams from each wildcard region for the 4 last spots. Since Gigabyte Marines made it into MSI GPL got a pool 2 seed in the main event and a spot in play-in for their 2nd best team.

Group A
Team WE - China
Gambit - CIS
Lyon Gaming - LAN

Group B
C9 - NA
Team One - Brazil
Dire Wolves - Oceania

Group C
Fnatic - Europe
Young Generation - 2nd seed GPL
Kaos Latin Gamers - South America

Group D
Hong Kong Attitude - LMS
1907 Fenebache - Turkey
Rampage - Japan

Each team plays 2 bo1's vs the 2 teams in their group, then the group winners plays a random 2nd place teams in a bo5 for a spot in the main event.

Day 1:
The teams in group A and B play eachother

Re: Worlds 2017

gonna watch the Gambit games they got Diamondprox and Edward from the old Gambit lineup + Kira and PVPStejos(roleswaped from jungle to top) from Abus Nox Luna

Fenebache has Move who played for Gravity/UoL and Frozen from Longzhu

gotta watch C9 and Fnatic to see if the manage to mess this up.

Re: Worlds 2017

Not a big fan of the play-in format, I think two 6-team groups would be a lot better and only take one more day to complete. We don't need to see Team oNe play anyone twice. With this format it's unlikely we see any games between Team WE, Fnatic, or Cloud9 at this tournament.

Re: Worlds 2017

TSM should disband as an org if they dont make it out of groups this time.

LZ looks like the team to beat this year though. They will stomp their group.

SKT looks pretty dicey... Faker obviously still a god but Huni and Peanut have been questionable. Lets see if they can bet back to top form.

Re: Worlds 2017

One of Team oNe eSports and 1907 Fenerbahçe will make it to groups which is great for TSM as now they'll only have a 50% chance of Team WE being in their group.

A group of TSM, Flash Wolves, Misfits, and 1907 Fenerbahçe would be the best chance NA has had at semifinals since 2013 when C9 got slotted into quarters.

Re: Worlds 2017

Man how did TSM get the gift draw?

No LCK team
LPL #3

If they don't make it out of this group, could be the biggest LOLNA

WWE support LPL

Feels bad when AJ Styles comes out for Team WE.



Shop this Styles -> WE and Cena -> TSM when Team WE knocks TSM out of groups.

Re: Worlds 2017

Not many good matches Day 1.

Looking for all 3 LCK Teams to stomp, as well as RNG.

FNC/GAM and EDG/AHQ could be somewhat interesting.

I think G2 vs SSG and SKT vs C9 both have interesting storylines with enough chance of upsets to be interesting. LMS has traditionally been rolled over by China and FNC/GAM are just two of the worst teams in the tournament, they're both fighting to get out of the group 2nd and lose in the quarterfinals.

eh Scout was by far the #1 reason EDG had a huge lead, he dominated early.

Lucian seems really bad late, at least vs a Cho just no way to get any dps.

never forget the 0-10 week.

1 seems a solid bit more likely than all 3, with 2 being most common.
