Immortals vs. NRG Esports – NA LCS 2016 – Week 8 – Day 1 – Preview

Immortals vs. NRG Esports are matched up against each other for the North American League of Legends Challenger Series to be held Saturday March 12, 2016 in Day 1, Week 8 of the competition.

Huni : Impact

Reignover : Moon

Pobelter : GBM

WildTurtle : Altec

Adrian : KonKwon


After losing one game to CLG, Immortals are going to want to prove that that mistake will not happen again. With two weeks of practise they should have patched up their early game mistakes and will make sure that they can play early around the Huni/Reignover duo, and let Pobelter and WildTurtle carry them in the late game.

NRG have been slipping in the ranks recently, due to losing careless games, and making disasterous mistakes. To win this game, GBM will need to make big plays, and Impact is going to have to crush Huni in lane, punishing any mistakes he makes. Their botlane is a point of concern, and could easily be targeted by Reignover, but if they can protect them and get Altec to a 2/3 item spike, they can carry in fights.

In general, Immortals should win this game, as they are generally superior in all lanes, and have much better shotcalling and macro play.

Chance of victory: Immortals: 70% : NRG Esports: 30%
