4.22.20 LOL EU Masters Slate

This is the first slate we’ve done for EU Masters. This tournament is composed of the strongest teams from many other smaller tournaments, so there is no recent record of these teams playing against each other. This makes things rather complicated, but we’ll do our best to break it down for you. Also, some stats aren’t available simply because some of these tournaments are so small, the stats we are used to displaying aren’t available. Gives you an idea as to what kind of teams are playing in this tournament. They are definitely good players in general, but they are the bottom of the barrel in the competitive world. Still, there’s definitely potential for high scores, so keep an eye on the EU Masters going forward.

Normally, statistics are pulled from one split as all of the team’s games are from one split. With multiple tournaments in the equation, the statistics reflect the games played so far this season, so take that into account when comparing two teams. If you see a team with their stats available, that will be confined to one specific split, so remember those stats reflect fewer games.

MRS(+185) V S04E(-250)  (12 PM EST)

While MRS have been participating in the LVP SLO split, a Spanish esports competition, S04E have been battling the best teams in Europe… and getting demolished. Still, that kind of experience is likely to make them strong, as even one of the weakest LEC teams is stronger than the teams that don’t even qualify. That kind of diversity can only help them going forward, even with their poor performance in the LEC. Hey, they still did better than SK and Vitality, so there’s that.

MRS have run through the competition with great performances out of Elyoya especially. Xico has had his moments, but he seems to love Orianna especially, so that might be a weakness S04E is going to exploit. It will be interesting to see if Gilius and his team have an answer to some of Elyoya’s unique picks, such as the Karthus jungle. It’s likely they’ll be prepared for it, but it seems to have done enough against MRS’s opponents in Spain. Abbedagge will likely do well alongside Innaxe and DreamS, so there are a lot of good picks here on S04E.

K1CK is one of the teams from Ultraliga, a polished based tournament. They finished in second place, and have played a few games so far in the EU Masters. Meanwhile, SNG have participated in the Nordic Championship and have done pretty well for themselves, although their record isn’t quite as solid as K1CK’s.

K1CK have done well for themselves in the EU Masters, with Shlatan playing a big role in getting his team ahead. Matislaw and Puki Style have done well with their scores, although Puki usually has more assists than kills. Meanwhile, when things get rough for SNG, they have a difficult time performing. If they do keep control of the game, however, Skude, Kroghsen, and reje have potential to score high. Against K1CK, this might not be the case, so they are riskier choices.

WIZ(+578) V mouz(-1111)  (1:50 PM EST)

First thing you see when looking at this matchup: Betting odds. While WIZ comes from a Balkan based tournament, mouz plays in a Riot Games organized tournament in Germany. Given the difference between the tournaments, it makes sense mouz would have the advantage, as they are likely to have been playing the stronger teams. Still, nothing else really stands out, making us wonder how the bettings odds are in mouz’s favor to this extent. Don’t count out WIZ just yet.

Considering Vzz’s KDA, his recent matches seem a little weak. This might not be a problem against mouz, but it won’t help your lineup too much if mouz come to play. Still, given the power of Lukezy, Vzz, and whiteinn, mouz could find themselves unprepared. If the caliber of teams is just higher in mouz’s games, however, then be on the lookout for Tolkin and LIDER. They could run away with this series pretty fast if WIZ aren’t ready for new teams.

Top Picks WIZ: Lukezy, Vzz, whiteinn Top Picks mouz: Tolkin, LIDER, promisq

ESB(+432) V FNC.R(-714)  (2:45 PM EST)

While FNC.R were battling in a Swedish tournament, esub went from dominating in the Czech Republic to the EU Masters. ESB are looking good for sure, possibly making you wonder about FNC.R’s betting odds. Given they are the academy team for the LEC’s FNC, who made the Grand Finals, this might have given them the edge. Honestly, that doesn’t really matter all that much, but what is really impressive is their scoring this split. They’ve had really great games and are likely to give ESB a run for their money.

Bravado68.7%6.71.27

Pretty much everyone on FNC.R has potential, so this might be a great team to focus on all lanes but top. Pride isn’t bad, but the potential out of the other 4 is pretty big, especially if ESB aren’t prepared for this. Just bear in mind, FNC.R have some of the most expensive players in the slate, and it’s a large slate. Which brings us to ESB’s bot lane. So far, in the EU Masters, Dany has had a very restricted champion pool of Varus, Syndra, and Senna. He played the usual adcs during Hitpoint Masters, the tournament before EU Masters, but now he seems to be holding back. Possibly because it’s working out alright, but against FNC.R, we might see something new out of him. However, his CS/M count is… scary. Even factoring in Senna, that’s not the best, so maybe look to prioritize other lanes for ESB. All of this explains why he is the cheapest adc on the slate.

LDLC is a French based team participating in a French based tournament,  so not too much diversity there. VGIA is the second Spanish based team, alongside Movistar Riders, and took first place with 3 fewer losses. They definitely have more games under their belts, and given that both teams are in single country tournaments, there likely won’t be as many surprises as the other matchups.

Erdote70.7%51.9

So… Attila’s KDA. This man looks like a monster, so he is a great pick, and is almost $1000 cheaper than the most expensive adc. The rest of the lineup looks pretty good, although PrettyGRE shines most on champions like Pantheon and Akali, so who knows if we’ll see that. If we do, it could go very well for PrettyGRE, so keep that option open. Given the pricing, this might be a good team to try and stack, but just remember no series is set in stone; this series just looks safe compared to some of the other matchups. As for LDLC, YellOwStaR stands out as one of FNC’s older players, so he seems to have fallen pretty hard. His adcs don’t look as solid as well, and the sub was the last to play, so that might not be the best choice. If you’re feeling a LDLC victory here, go for the rest of the lineup, but it might not be the best choice.

RGO comes from the Ultraliga Tournament, a Polish-based tournament also home to K1CK. While K1CK came in second, RGO finished first place, but remember that DK have been playing in the EU Masters for a little while now. They’ve had some good matches so far, so this could get rough for RGO, especially since they have to adapt their style after all those games in Ultraliga.

Hadess62.5%5.25.1
Chapapi70.8%11.68.5
Goose75.4%5.45.8
Nightmares78.1%4.12.5

There’s been some wacky stats here, even after factoring in the changes, but this matchup has some of the strangest stats we’ve seen yet. Goose with 5.8 CS/M?????? That’s only factoring in 9 games, but they won 7 of those. A few were on Senna, but they weren’t factored into that CS/M number, so… you thought Dany’s CS/M was bad? Look at this. 

Anyway, Chapapi has been the clear star performer, with Goose and Nightmares as good follow ups. Goose doesn’t always get all the kills, but despite his strange stats, his record for scoring high should be pretty solid. However, Czekolad has been the best performer for RGO, so that matchup might be difficult for Chapapi. Despite Alois’s low KP, his chances should be pretty good here due to his strength as a top laner. Since these teams are coming from different tournaments, the individual skill of the players can mean more, so KP won’t necessarily  mean more points. We don’t really know what to expect from bot lane, but overall, scores haven’t been too high on either side. That could change tomorrow, but it’s something to keep in mind given the rest of the slates.

RGO Top Picks: Szygenda, Zanzarah, Czekolad DK Top Picks: Chapapi, Goose, Nightmares
