4.12.10 LOL LPL/LCK Slate

First things first: eStar are back.

Well, seeing as it’s only one series, maybe we shouldn’t get too excited. Regardless, this has been their best series in a little while, and they shot their way to the top of the scoreboard for the slate. Shoutout to Cryin for going crazy, getting a combined 27 kills over 2 games. Honestly, the number of kills from Cryin alone is better than entire teams in other matchups over the past week.

Example: LGD ended their series against OMG 2-0, yet finished with a total of 23 kills. They do seem to be winning more frequently, but there were better options in terms of picks to be had. If you want to hear more about these matchups, be sure to check out our podcast for a recap. In the meantime, let’s get into our next slate.

Neither team in this matchup has had the greatest record lately. Their most recent victories have been against V5, which isn’t exactly a groundbreaking accomplishment. If anything, this series is likely to turn out similar to LGD versus OMG: one team surpassing the other, but with relatively low scoring. Even if they do manage to rack up the kills, it is fairly unpredictable as to who will take the victory.

GALA62.8%3.89.5

DMO’s Natural and Xiaopeng have had some decent showings, especially in their winning games. GALA hasn’t been the most spot on adc, making him a bit riskier in this matchup especially. However, SofM and Angel are likely to put up a fight, with huanfeng being more reliable to rack up the kills. Ultimately, determining the victor in this matchup is difficult, but if Suning does take the series, they are likely to have better scoring players for your roster. 

SN Top Picks: SofM, Angel, huanfeng DMO Top Picks: Natural, Xiaopeng, Mark

DRX(-370) V AF(+260)  (4 AM EST)

Dragons/Game2.82.51
Barons/Game.75.59
Turrets/Game6.95.5
K+D/Game2223.8

Despite Afreeca Freecs’ latest comeback, they need to put in a tremendous effort to take on DragonX. DRX have looked very strong lately, having taken down KT, GEN, and DWG all in a row. AF’s comeback game against Griffin was desperately needed for their morale, but it would be a surprise if they could build on their victory in this series.

DRXKP%KDACS/M

Spirit74.1%3.74.9
ALL IN67.3%6.27.9
Mystic65.2%2.99.8
Jelly68%2.7.9

Doran’s top lane has served as a supporting role for many games, meaning he will likely be heavy on the assists. Meanwhile, Chovy, Deft, and sometimes Pyosik are the heavy hitters. These players aren’t exactly cheap, so you will have to prioritize your lanes, but Chovy and Deft are solid choices. As for AF, if ALL IN makes another showing, he could very well surprise everyone with this matchup. Still, their last series was against Griffin, and he had a decent showing against HLE, but neither of those teams are on the level of DRX. After that, his latest games took place in late February, so maybe things have turned around for him. The rest of the roster had some decent scores, but nothing too exciting.

DRX Top Picks: Chovy, Deft AF Top Picks: Spirit, ALL IN

FPX(-303) V EDG(+219)  (4 AM EST)

Dragons/Game2.72.55
Barons/Game.67.74
Turrets/Game6.86.6
K+D/Game25.323.7

Both of these teams have fought weaker teams throughout the past week, but it’s interesting that FPX managed to lose against Vici Gaming. This was a definitive upset, and could be a one time thing, but FPX are now going into this game with a loss like that under their belt. Meanwhile, EDG have been on a winning streak for 4 series in a row. This doesn’t mean EDG are going to win, but it does shake things up a little.

Scout62.3%5.98.7
Hope72.7%9.59.4
meiko64.2%3.61

Despite his issues against VG, Doinb has proven to be a very rewarding pick. His performances have been fairly kill heavy, oftentimes more than the adc. In addition, Crisp is one of the more reliable supports in the LPL. The other players have potential to do well, especially Lwx, but it might not be as certain. Meanwhile, if EDG manages to give FPX a hard time, Hope is likely to do well; the only issue is picking him and EDG going 1-2 or 0-2. Seeing as most of EDG’s games lately have been against worse teams, they might not be fully prepared for this series.

FPX Top Picks: Doinb, Crisp EDG Top Picks: Jiejie, Hope

HLE(+412) V GEN(-667)  (5:30 AM EST)

Turrets/Game4.57.6
K+D/Game22.319.5

As far as the victory is concerned, GenG are looking very good. Other than their series against T1 and DRX, GenG have done extremely well in winning their matchups. A sweep is always possible, but given HLE’s poor record, it would be unreasonable to give them the edge.

HLEKP%KDACS/M
CuVee58.1%1.87.5

Clid74.1%5.55.6
Bdd76.2%7.58.4
Ruler64.7%810.5
Life65.4%5.9.9

For GenG, Clid, Bdd, and Ruler should be prioritized. In this slate, a GenG heavy lineup is likely to do well, so these players are the most likely to get the kills. It might not be a bad idea to include Rascal or Life in a lineup as well, as the assists can be beneficial. However, keep in mind this is LCK; they are very likely to win, but GenG might not do it like eStar. Despite the one-sided matchup, some other games (including the one below) might be better for your lineup.

HLE Top Picks: Lehends GEN Top Picks: Clid, Bdd, Ruler

BLG(+319) V iG(-476)  (5:30 AM EST)

Dragons/Game2.371.89
Barons/Game.74.54
Turrets/Game6.17.2
K+D/Game23.432.9

This matchup runs parallel to the GenG and HLE matchup, but there might be more kills to be found in the LPL. iG are definitely the favorites and for good reason, so there’s a lot that can happen. Again, beware of the upset, but there’s nothing really standing out for BLG.

Leyan61.3%3.35.9
RooKie66.1%3.17.3
Puff57.6%49.6
Southwind65.9%4.61.2

For iG, RooKie can be a bit of a gamble. Oftentimes he can be found playing a more supporting role, and he’ll end up with a great number of assists. Leyan and Puff are two of the better kill options, so against BLG they could dominate the field. TheShy has had his moments, but he isn’t the most reliable pick. BLG’s hope would likely be FoFo, who honestly might not have the worst score even in defeat, and kingen could carry if BLG does manage to dominate the early game top side. Still, there really isn’t much to say about BLG defeating iG.

BLG Top Picks: kingen, FoFo iG Top Picks: Leyan, Puff, Southwind
