Edward Gaming vs. Master 3 – LPL 2016 – Week 7 – Day 1 – Preview

Edward Gaming vs. Master 3 are matched up against each other for the Tencent LoL Pro League Series to be held Thursday March 17, 2016 in Day 1, Week 7 of the competition.


EDG were once dubbed a ‘super team’ with the promise of claiming the League of Legends World Championship trophy. But it seems that with every day that passes in 2016, they are one step further away from fulfilling that promise. The main problem dragging this super star team down is their early game. Irrespective of how well Deft, PawN or Koro1 can perform late game; multiplying an early game performance of 0 by potential late game performance of *insert big number here* will still be 0.

Master 3 are without a doubt a lower tier team. The only star player that I can identify on their team is their jungler Yolo who attempts to have a lot of presence in the early game. As a whole, Master 3’s team fights are very messy and need to work on better coordination and positioning. Master 3 have a lot of potential in the late game, however, have never got the ball rolling to reach a favourable late game.

Prediction: Edward Gaming 70% | Master 3 30%
