League of Legends World Championship: Day Six

With group A decided we now turn our attention to group C. One of the most cut and dried groups, in theory, but did the group end as many expected?


Top Seed: SKT


Today: Three wins

No one really expected anything else. SKT have been such a force on the world stage that there was little doubt they would be the top team in their group. The only team with a real hope of taking them down, EDward Gaming, was dispatched first and then it was just all in a days work. Now the Korean team will be looking to brand their dominance on the world stage once again with a strong showing in London.


Second Seed: EDward Gaming


Today: Two wins, one loss

While they would have been expecting to qualify, EDward Gaming will be relieved that they have made it. While they lost twice to SKT they managed to defeat the two weaker sides and will be happy that they have shown they can still close out games effectively. Now it will be a tough match in London for them, but they will be going into it with confidence that they can advance should they play as well as they have for most of the group.


Third (DNQ): H2K


Today: One win, two losses

It is sad that the only British player at worlds, Kasing, will not be able to play in front of the home crowd. While H2K never really expected to qualify it is encouraging to see them grab a couple of wins and to not be completely outclassed on the global stage. H2K will go home proud of their performances and will look to improve and build on their team for next year, and will hope to qualify again for another shot at worlds.


Fourth (DNQ): Bangkok Titans


Today: Three losses

It is no surprise that Bangkok Titans failed to qualify, and some harsher critics would say that being without a win was also a foregone conclusion. However, the Titans didn’t look out of their depth and, while they lost all their games relatively decisively, they seemed to be relatively confident and pro-active. While they will not be too happy with their result they should go home with the view of re-qualification next year, with the aim of a better result.

Hey there guys! I’m Phil and I’m a 19 year old from the lovely UK. I’ve always loved video games and can remember the first time I played Age of Empires on my mum’s laptop. This passion for gaming grew as I grew and went into overdrive when I found myself with money I could spend and my own computer and consoles. While you’ll mostly find me on the PC, either being shouted at in online games or shouting at the screen on Steam, I also have a soft spot for my Xbox One. My favorite games of all time include Crusaders Kings 2 and Thomas Was Alone.When you can find me away from gaming it was almost certainly not by choice. I’m currently still a student International Relations and Political Science. While away from keyboard I also enjoy playing football (or soccer if you prefer) and recording a podcast with some of my friends who should know better.I love keeping up to date with all the latest gaming news and I hope I can help you to do the same.I’ll see you out there!

Have your say!
