Echo Fox vs. Counter Logic Gaming are matched up against each other for the North American League of Legends Challenger Series to be held Saturday March 13, 2016 in Day 2, Week 8 of the competition.
Kfo : Darshan
Hard : Xmithie
Froggen : Huhi
Keith : Stixxay
Big : Aphromoo
Echo Fox have beaten the teams nearest to them in the standings, but fell to TSM and Immortals last week. If they want to prove themselves as a playoffs worthy team, they will need to beat CLG. It will be a tough game for sure, but with Froggen and Keith, they can definitely defeat them. They will need to limit Darshan’s splitpush pressure, and focus on shutting down Huhi and Stixxay before they are able to dish out considerable damage in fights.
For CLG, they will need to enable Darshan by putting him in a winning matchup and warding enough to keep him safe. As they are the red side, they could opt to give Darshan the last pick, allowing for a counter pick. If they win this game, based on C9’s results, they could solidify their spot in the top 2, enabling a playoff bye.
Overall, it is expected that CLG win this, but Echo Fox could definitely cause an upset.
Chance of victory: Echo Fox: 35% : Counter Logic Gaming: 65%
