Its the final week of the summer split and the playoff’s contesters have already been decided. Although the top 3 teams for Group A and B have been decided, the order of top 3 within Group B is still subject to change. A top team showdown in Group B could give the winner the BYE in the quarterfinals to instantly move forward to the semifinals, so while this week may be overlooked, these teams are looking for an imperative victory to skip a chance of elimination in the playoffs.
The big match-up this week is between H2k and Unicorns Of Love, whom are both vying for the semifinals spot with 8W-3L & 7W-3L records respectively. Both teams have had an amazing season up until this point and have been seemingly unstoppable as of late. However, Unicorn’s downfall seems to be in the Jungler position. The rookie Xerxe has had a strong start this season, though he seems to have his fair share of accidental hiccups, and that’s where the “First Blood King” comes in. H2K’s Jankos isn’t just any jungler, he is arguably the best jungler in Europe, and his nickname “First Blood King” isn’t for nothing. He will capitalize on this rookie’s mistakes and give himself the potential to completely change the tide of these matches if UOL cannot find a way to stop him. Furthermore, his experience and co-op ganking with top laner H2K Odoamne will translate any feeding he gets into the solid top laner, known for pulling H2K into victory. With these things in mind, we have to put our money on H2K winning this game, though it is imperative to keep your eyes on H2K Jankos as you watch, UOL must shut him down.
