Immortals vs. Team SoloMid – NA LCS 2016 – Week 9 – Day 1 – Preview

Immortals vs. Team SoloMid are matched up against each other for the North American League of Legends Challenger Series to be held Saturday March 19, 2016 in Day 1, Week 9 of the competition.

Huni : Hauntzer

Reignover : Svenskeren

Pobelter : Bjergsen

WildTurtle : Doublelift

Adrian : Yellowstar


Immortals are locked in 1st place, meaning that they may try to hide their power picks and use different compositions. This could be good as they may surprise TSM with different strategies, or they could over exaggerate their skill and fail miserably. It would be a risk to take, but they do have the space to try new things. However, with the egos of Huni and Reignover, they will want to win as many games as possible and WildTurtle will want to prove his skill against his previous team.

For TSM, they will need to stay above TL and NRG so that their playoff run is as easy as possible. They could catch up to 2nd place if both CLG and C9 go 0-2, but that is unlikely to happen. They should still look to upset Immortals, as they do have a very highly skilled team if they can communicate, and really show up, they will have the ability to stand up to Immortals. In my opinion, Bjergsen can win against Pobelter so if the rest of TSM can go even, they could snowball that advantage.

Chance of victory: Immortals: 65% : Team SoloMid: 35%
