Darshan : Billyboss

Xmithie : Kirei

Huhi : Shiphtur

Stixxay : Apollo

Aphromoo : KiwiKid


CLG are currently tied for 2nd place, and will want sole position so that they can get the first round playoff bye. They can target this game as somewhat of a simple win, as long as they do their homework and don’t get complacent. Darshan should be able to go toe to toe with Billyboss and win, meaning that as long as he has enough warding and communication from his team, he can splitpush to his heart’s content, as long as he is in a winning match up. The rest of the team can then siege down towers in other lanes, or back out and play around Dragon or Baron, with Darshan teleporting in to help if a fight breaks out.

For Team Dignitas, they showed that against Immortals, they have the capability to have a real impact and force their way into the game, through an early lead, they pushed Immortals almost to their nexus, before going too far and letting Immortals back into the game. If they can do the same, but chance their late game play, then they definitely look to have a chance against CLG.

Chance of victory: Counter Logic Gaming: 80% : Team Dignitas: 20%
