NA LCS Summer 2019 – Predictions of Week 2 Day 1 matches
Cloud9 vs. Echo Fox
Cloud9 have managed to translate their success in the NALCS Spring Split to date, with a strong start in the first week, now 2-0. Echo fox are looking decent too, especially with Solo’s stunning team fight execution, baiting and coordinating to an extremely high level with the rest of FOX earlier in Week 1.
Prediction: Cloud9 55% l Echo Fox 45%
Team Liquid vs. 100 Thieves
Following their success in the Spring split, there are high expectations for Liquid. Unfortunately, the team fell to Echo Fox, that said, they managed to secure a win again TSM, one of their main rivals. 100 Thieves have not seemed to improve, still currently at the bottom of the leader boards, dropping both matches in the first week.
Prediction: Team Liquid 85% l 100 Thieves 15%
OpTiC Gaming vs. Counter Logic Gaming
Optic Gaming have surprised many, going 2-0 with wins against both Clutch Gaming and 100 Thieves. Optic’s improvement is accredited to the team’s synchronisation, something they lacked last split considering a majority of their players were signed at the start of 2019. Counter Logic Gaming do not seem to have made any obvious improvement by observing their Week 1 performance.
Prediction: OpTiC Gaming 58% l Counter Logic Gaming 42%
Team SoloMid vs. Fly Quest
TSM has room for improvement, their game against Liquid saw them unable to capitalise on opportunities presented, giving up multiple objectives which allowed TL to snowball. That said, this match should still go to TSM, Fly Quest being significantly weaker with an extremely slow start, currently 0-2.
Prediction: Team SoloMid 60% l Fly Quest 40%
Clutch Gaming vs. Golden Guardians
This should be a quick match going to the Golden Guardians, Clutch Gaming now 0-2 and at the bottom of the pack, while the Golden Guardians are one of the leading teams, 2-0. That said, considering the Golden Guardians in the past have been fairly inconsistent, Clutch Gaming stands a chance.
Prediction: Clutch Gaming 28% l Golden Guardians 72%
