Counter Logic Gaming vs. NRG Esports – NA LCS 2016 – Week 9 – Day 1 – Preview

Counter Logic Gaming vs. NRG Esports are matched up against each other for the North American League of Legends Challenger Series to be held Saturday March 19, 2016 in Day 1, Week 9 of the competition.

Darshan : Impact

Xmithie : Moon

Huhi : GBM

Stixxay : Altec

Aphromoo : KonKwon


CLG can’t make it to first place, but they will want to claim second place for their own. After losing last week to TL they will need to widen a gap between themselves and C9 by winning this game. As always, their roster is very strong and splitpushing is definitely their game style. Xmithie has been strong recently and has been key in a lot of their wins.

For NRG, they are close to dropping low in playoff seeding and could fall out if Echo Fox go 2-0 this week. They are a good team, but they haven’t looked to strong against teams above them recently, and so they may struggle against CLG. If Impact can stand up to Darshan and if they can limit his impact in the game, they could shut down the strategy that CLG seem to always run.

Chance of victory: Counter Logic Gaming: 70% : NRG Esport: 30%
