The LPL went to the last week to decide the names that entered the play-offs, the LCK entered the second leg not peacefully when T1 dropped, the top 6 had a strong change.
NIP is facing the opportunity to enter the play-off and will compete with RNG along with TT. The confrontation with RA can be considered as the perfect opportunity for NIP to at least maintain their top 10 in the face of TT.
Both of these teams are already in the playoffs, but somehow JDG lost 2-1 to iG on Sunday, so WE will also want to try the defending LPL double champion – MSI. What is the problem in 2023 or is iG simply rising?
TT who wants to step into the play-off will have to “step through” the top 4 LNG in this last week. TT is in good form when he has just won a convincing 2-1 victory over EDG and is facing the opportunity to advance to the play-offs.
NIP is much softer because the opponent after RA at the beginning of the week is FPX in the middle of the week. The Fire Phoenix has sunk deep enough in 14th place and certainly their momentum can’t be compared to a NIP trying to get into the playoffs.
HLE had too much water to drop fishing, T1 went downhill and gained momentum and was in the top 3 – tied with DK. And KT has probably confirmed its position since the beginning of the season when only behind GEN in the extremely solid 2nd place. HLE’s 3rd place is partly because their opponent last week was not really strong, but KT is clearly on another level.
The confrontation between TheShy and “little TheShy” will definitely be hot even though the ranking value is not much. YSKM has the opportunity to go on the road with their idols and will draw a large number of female fans to cheer on both handsome players.
Previously, it was difficult for T1 with the bottom team to become a focal match, but now many people will definitely want to watch the match to see how bad T1 is. Because just last week, T1 lost no more armor against DRX – the top 9 team, would it be better to confront NS?
RNG is also looking to be sure of the top 9 for a ticket to the play-offs and their opponent is definitely going to be WBG. RNG is a rather unpredictable team because on a good day they can beat JDG but also lose to LGD on another day.
The final match to decide whether NIP will enter the play-off or not will be the confrontation between NIP and the top 4 LNG team. Although it is decisive, if NIP does well in the first two matches of the week, 80% of them have a basis to enter the play-off.
T1 faces a bigger challenge this weekend when it comes to DK in this very difficult situation. But maybe Faker will recover and come back soon? It should be like that because if T1 continues to lose, it is entirely possible that they fall out of the top 6.
TT has a pretty heavy schedule when their final match of the season will be against the defending double champion JDG. The possibility of TT surpassing JDG is not impossible, JDG just lost to iG!
