What a match-up to kick off this season of Starladder! These teams haven’t competed against each other in a tournament format since June of 2015 and not at all since both changing their rosters. Alliance are known for their ability to push lanes, “rat” and make valuable trades for structural damage to opponents. EG will need to prepare for this during the drafting phase and ensure they have an early to mid-game team to counteract Alliances strengths.
Players to watch: Keep an eye on the mid-lane with SumaiL and S4. Both will likely have ganks from their supports so look for an action-packed back-and-forth battle.
Prediction: Evil Geniuses 65% – Alliance 35%
