4.6.20 LOL LPL Slate

Well… that was disappointing.

For those of you who tuned in for our first ever League of Legends podcast, you probably heard me pick Teddy as the must have player for your roster. I’m generally pretty torn about who would be considered a must have player to begin with, making that choice difficult to begin with. What I really didn’t anticipate was T1 losing to DWG 0-2. A little bit of uncertainty in the LPL matches led to me ignoring my usual advice about LPL games and the higher kill counts, but that sure was a mistake. 

As it turns out, I was right about EDG and JDG, while my uncertainty about iG and RNG was perhaps for the best. TheShy playing Vayne top and practically carrying was a surprise to be sure, while Rookie ended up with an incredible score on Orianna when losing Game 1 to RNG. Regardless of these changes, it’s hard to go wrong with Puff and Southwind, even if they didn’t net the most points out of anyone in this slate. 

At the very least, we don’t have any LCK games until Wednesday, so I have a few days to regroup and figure out what is going on in Korea. Until then, we can continue to look at LPL, and with some new teams it’s nice to spend all the time on LPL to figure out what might happen tomorrow. Let’s get into it.

Even through all of the upsets we’ve seen lately, V5 is the one team that remains consistently bad. With only 1 game they can claim,  most of their matches have been completely one sided in favor of the opponent. Teams like Griffin in the LCK at least had some victories and showed signs of life (like against T1……), but V5 honestly looks completely hopeless at this point. I wouldn’t even bother with them.

Y460.9%1.56.9
Max52.3%.6.7

Clx has shown signs of life in his recent games, having decent games in the past few losses. Of course by that I mean not going 0/7, so continue to avoid this V5 roster. The question now is who to pick on SN. If you want to save your best roles for the stronger teams, top might not be a bad option here. Bin doesn’t have the greatest stats, but with his tendency to pick damage dealers top like Renekton, there is potential for a decent pick. If you want some carries for this matchup, it should be obvious who to pick. Bear in mind: there have been upsets recently, and at this point V5 likely has nothing to lose. I can’t honestly say they might take it based on their performances, but if you’re worried about another upset then it could be dangerous to put it all on SN. If you choose to believe the statistics this time around, however, then SN could rack you a lot of points.

SN Top Picks: Bin, Angel, huanfeng, SwordArt V5 Top Picks: xiaohan, Max, Clx (if you’re feeling lucky and dangerous) 

OMG(+107) V VG(-139)  (4:30 AM EST)

Barons/Game.71.48

First Blood %N/AN/A

Here we have a bit riskier of a matchup. VG immediately stood out due to their victory over eStar on the first of the month, although after watching eStar play during that series, they were probably just committed to April Fools Day. OMG on the other hand haven’t won a series since about a week and a half ago, with V5 as their opponents. Before moving to the players, it’s worth noting OMG tend to have fewer dragons, yet more towers and turrets. With the power of the dragon souls in the current meta, dragons are incredibly important, and many would argue matter more than baron.

iBOY64.9%49.5
Hang79.3%3.41.2

The mid lane matchup definitely stood out with Forge playing very well on a number of champions recently, while icon’s best matches are on Zoe. Still, with most of icon’s latest matches being against IG and TES, it doesn’t surprise me he hasn’t performed. Given the way matches have gone recently, I’m skeptical to choose VG as a clear winner, but they definitely have advantages. If VG does take it, Forge and iBOY would be the best picks, but it is definitely possible for OMG to put up a fight. In that case, it is always surprising to see a jungler with the highest KDA on the team, making h4cker a potential early game monster if OMG comes prepared. There is merit to playing either team here, but I am leaning towards VG.

OMG Top Picks: H4cker, icon VG Top Picks: Forge, iBOY, Hang

TES(-714) V RW(+432)  (5 AM EST)

TES are the favorites going into this matchup, yet RW shouldn’t be discounted so easily. A lot of TES’s latest matches have been against some weaker teams, as well as OMG (which makes me question their potential for tomorrow even more.) Knight in particular has had great showings recently, and he is definitely a solid mid laner, but if TES goes into this matchup with little to no preparation I could see RW taking at least a game which would hurt TES’s points for sure. After watching Griffin take down T1 with their Senna/Tank bot lane, nothing should be unexpected.

Still, it’s important to understand that RW has lost against some not so great teams. If all of RW’s recent matches had been against teams like iG, I would be in their camp. They could still pull something off tomorrow, but it’s hard not to go with TES.

TESKP%KDACS/M

Haro75.3%35.4
Ruby65.5%2.67.2
ZWuJi76.4%3.79
Ley74.1%2.21

Knight is going to be a much safer pick than Ruby no matter the outcome of the match. The mid lane advantage is significant in this matchup, and Knight has performed well even during lost games. Haro and ZWuJi are definitely major players for RW, but if you have no faith then don’t bother. The jungler is unlikely to turn out a great KDA if their team is consistently losing, and adc is too valuable a role to waste on someone you don’t think will win the game. For most lineups, your adc MUST go positive in order to get money out of it. If RW does pull through, then ZWuJi would be a fantastic investment. For the other lanes, I have more confidence in 369 overall and Karsa would fare well unless the team is falling apart. One of my favorite picks for TES is Qiuqiu, however, who is an overall solid support who racks up the assists. 
TES Top Picks: 369, Knight, Photic, Qiuqiu RW Top Picks: Haro, ZWuJi
