On August 7, JDG failed to retreat from LGD’s away challenge. After losing to LGD, JDG’s result reached 5-8, which meant that there was only theoretical possibility for JDG to hit the playoffs. Plus LNG won VG successfully, which also makes LNG more stable on the way to the playoffs.
Let’s first look at the current situation in the playoffs. Teams with eight wins can confirm that they have locked in the playoffs ahead of time, while teams with seven wins are EDG, IG and LNG. These three teams are also ranked sixth to eighth. Because EDG and IG still have three games left, it is possible to enter the playoffs. Sex is still very big.
By contrast, the situation of LNG is the most precarious, which teams will impact LNG? WE, JDG and DMO in the 9th to 11th rankings still have theoretical possibilities. However, after JDG and DMO, the winner can only get 7 wins, which makes their playoff situation very serious, and their scoring is also in a disadvantageous situation. In other words, only theoretical possibilities remain, after all, eight wins may be the final line of achievement.
In this way, the competition for postseason seats is becoming more and more obvious, and the last seat is likely to be created between WE and LNG teams. Let’s first look at the last opponents of the two teams.
WE Remaining Opponents (RW and V5)
The strength of RW and V5 is not very strong, and the two teams for the basic absence of playoffs, do not rule out the existence of training behind, which is also good news for WE. Of course, we can’t expect our opponents to release water, mainly depending on WE’s own performance. Recently WE has won three consecutive victories, including the victory over the strong team IG, and the state of the team has recovered bit by bit. As long as they can arrange their skills and tactics in place, it is very possible to win both games.
Because WE and LNG lost in the game, WE still need to surpass their opponents in small points in order to fight against LNG. At present WE is two points behind in small points. If the latter two games all defeat their opponents by 2:0, as long as LNG can not defeat SN by 2:0 in the last game, WE will be in the playoffs.
LNG Remaining Opponents (SN)
Compared with WE, LNG’s last opponent is more difficult to play, although SN has ensured playoff seats, but their goal must be to enter the top four, so every game can not be lost. So in the face of LNG this game, SN will certainly go all out, which is good news for WE.
Faced with the SN team, LNG still needs to let go, as long as 2:0 win the opponent is sure to enter the playoffs. However, the pressure can not be put to the maximum, first of all, to win the game as the initial goal. If something happens, we need to expect WE to make mistakes in the last two wars.
At present, the situation of LPL playoffs is becoming clearer and clearer. Every game behind WE and LNG has attracted much attention. Which team do you like better to play in the playoffs?
