Echo Fox vs. Renegades – NA LCS 2016 – Week 5 – Day 1 – Preview

Echo Fox vs. Renegades are matched up against each other for the North American League of Legends Challenger Series to be held Saturday February 13, 2016 in Day 1, Week 5 of the competition.

Solo : Flarez

Hard : Crumbz

Goldenglue : Alex Ich

LOD : Freeze

Stunt : Hakuho


Both these teams are struggling. Sitting at 1-7 in the standings, they both desperately need a win and this is the most likely game for them to get it. Echo Fox have recently subbed out their bot lane, removing Keith and Big in hopes for new stars to shine. Renegades subbed out their top laner RF Legendary for Flarez in their game vs TSM last week, but he was unable to grant them victory, despite Renegades having a lead early on. This game is likely to be very back and forth, with both teams making mistakes and throwing, as they are not up to the LCS standard of ending games swiftly and cleanly. It will come down to whoever makes the last mistake that loses, so could really go either way. However I have to give an edge to Renegades, due to the number of veterans in their team, Crumbz, Alex Ich and Freeze have been playing for a long time, so I expect them to be slightly better than the Echo Fox team.

Predictions: Echo Fox: 40% : Renegades: 60%
