ESL One Genting Group Stages – Day 2 Rundown, Day 3 Predictions

ESL Genting Day 2 ended off with 4 more teams eliminated, and so far, the fastest and longest games of the whole Minor. Shortest Game: Mineski vs LFY – 18:09. I’ve never seen a match so one-sided before. Mineski were in control from the beginning of the game. Nana completely denies the Shadow Fiend at mid, and Mineski create enough space for Mushi to get 71 CS @ 10 minutes. Longest Game: Fnatic vs Vici Gaming – 91:36. Probably one for the books. Fnatic get mega creeps, but Vici Gaming were able to hold for a good 30 minutes before...

Words 2017 Day 6 Summary

Things are picking up as half of the groups have been resolved. RNG has surprised the world by taking a commanding 5-1 over Samsung, only dropping a game against G2 Esports. Today’s games should be very interesting, with a three way tie. I do expect TSM to make it out of the group, along with Misfits. The Flash Wolves are not totally out of contention though – but at best they’ll make it for a tie breaker for 2nd...

Words 2017 Day 3 Summary

Day 3 had its own mix of tight games, and stomps. Three of the games had 0 kills on one side of the team – RNG, Misfits, and G2 all won in dominating fashion. EDG has dropped to a very difficult 0-3, and their chances of making it out of group A look very bleak. Galio and Kalista were still generally banned, though Galio got through one game and RNG just dominated SSG with it. Oddly enough, Leblanc and Gnar made it to the top of bans for Day 3, while Sejuani moves from most banned to most picked....
