After BTXL’s performance, it’s tempting to root for the underdog in these matchups. However, there are some pretty good reasons to consider SNG a different case. BTXL at least came close in some of their matches, while SNG seem to have been completely demolished. Their games often see their opponents with over 15 kills, while SNG barely get past 5. They managed 9 kills in a 23 minute game against K1CK, but their opponent ended with 36, so that’s that. Definitely not much to expect here, so if they lose in Slate 1, don’t hold your breath for a comeback.

For those who have bet on LPL games, remember when the strategy was to stack V5’s opponents? Well, if you want to play it safe in Slate 1, that’s fine, but if SONG doesn’t appear to have improved all that much then you might want to try something similar. The hardest part about this strategy is working around the budget, since SNG’s opponents are going to have the highest salaries. Interestingly enough, S04E saw their best score on Gilius’s Lee Sin when they played SNG, and he isn’t on here because we aren’t sure he’ll be in tomorrow’s games. Given that, maybe holding out wouldn’t be the worst idea, but you definitely wouldn’t be crazy if you did want to stack an S04E carry lineup. As for SNG, we’ll include some players who might have good performances if they have turned things around. Don’t consider them as far gone as V5, but they still need quite the push.

K1CK have had some pretty commanding victories, one of which was against MRS. They seemed to have trouble against Sertuss’s Leblanc, but we’ll talk about that later. Their matchup against MRS wasn’t perfect at times, but they did end the game fairly early with a good number of kills. Ultimately, their rotations were on point, and they were able to capitalize really well.

Shalatan hasn’t always been on the same page as the rest of his team, or at the least their coordination has been a bit off. If K1CK haven’t addressed this, MRS could take advantage of it this series. If they have, we might see a repeat of their previous game, except K1CK will be more in control. Definitely keep an eye on the jungler during this slate, because if K1CK haven’t figured out these issues, they might encounter trouble during their matches tomorrow. Mattislaw and Puki Style are likely to reap the most benefit from a successful K1CK game, but Shlatan will also do your lineup well if they come prepared. For MRS, Xico has had good games, but his performances were also a bit off; he had sketchy moments on Orianna and Viktor especially. Beansu’s KDA is pretty out of control, so he might be a decent top pick as well; he doesn’t get all the kills, but he might be a safe top lane pick. 

K1CK Top Picks: Shlatan, Matislaw, Puky Style, Raxxo MRS Top Picks: Beansu, Javaaa, Rhuckz

Since S04E are likely to do well in Slate 1, K1CK versus MRS will be important to watch. If MRS can take down K1CK, they have a pretty good chance against S04E, especially after their first matchup went well for them. Part of that might have been S04E looking incredibly bad early on, especially with Gilius doing nothing on Lee Sin that game; he basically farmed for the first 15 minutes and proceeded to have 0 impact.

The costs for players aren’t too far apart here, making this slate look really tempting. Barring any complete collapse on K1CK’s part, they will likely dominate SNG again, and S04E will be a good choice if MRS fall short against K1CK once again.

This matchup should be fairly straightforward, even if K1CK do manage to lose their first game. Be on the lookout if K1CK lose and SNG manage to do well, but otherwise, they’ll probably fall flat. As with the other SNG games, focus the opposing team’s carries.

This is sure to be an exciting matchup if the teams perform as expected. S04E’s loss was to MRS, but K1CK is also a strong team and they could easily redeem themselves here. If all goes as expected, this should be a tougher matchup to call. Their last game also dragged on to 37 minutes, so it wasn’t exactly easy for S04E.

Mid lane was a great point of contention in this matchup, with both Sertuss and Matislaw doing the most damage out of anyone else (Matislaw even out damaged Neon.) We mentioned Sertuss’s Leblanc above, so it’s easy to imagine him repeating the same performance on the same or a similar champion. Definitely keep an eye on mid, and choose your mid laner of choice depending on how the teams fare in the first 2 slates. As for the rest, if S04E have found their stride and do well earlier in the day, then you really can’t go wrong with anyone. As we’ve mentioned already, Shlatan is an interesting point of focus, so if his performances throughout the first 2 slates are off then you might want to stay away from him. Matislaw and Puki Style are great choices, however, so if things look close by the time this slate rolls around, we could see great things from them. It’s not exactly an assured victory for S04E here, so be sure to make your decision after watching the games.

Even if MRS fall to S04E and K1CK, odds are they’ll have an easier time overcoming SNG. If SNG looks like complete garbage after their first two games, then easy choice. If they put up a fight against the other teams, then perhaps it could get sketchy for MRS, but we’ll have to wait and see.

We’ll go ahead and add Xico back on here, as his chances of scoring are higher against this team. He could perform pretty well in the other games if the team as a whole does well, but his missteps in his recent games call that into question.
