The matchup between Longzhu Gaming vs. CJ Entus in Week 10, Day 2 of LOL LCK will take place on Thursday, 17th of March 2016
I feel like I’m repeating myself when it comes to CJ Entus because it’s all about their ADC, Kramer. He is an absolute monster, representing about a third of his team’s damage and a quarter of his team’s total gold. I cannot see CJ winning a game without Kramer smashing out some big numbers.
Longzhu are a little all over the place. They give away easy kills, yet some laners get solo kills. They perform some really random groupings with support and jungle with really high risk/reward outcomes. As a whole, their team comes together quite nicely if they are able to overcome early game risks.
In this CJ vs Longzhu matchup, Longzhu needs to shut down Kramer. If they ignore Kramer, he will get a pentakill. Not even joking, that’s how much of a high threat target he is. That being said, Longzhu do have a lot going for them this match up, with all their laners being very talented and reliable.
CJ will need to have a team composition built around Kramer, with a beefy frontline and lots of CC. A team composition with a tanky top laner such as Nautilius, Trundle or Poppy with a control mage mid such as Lissandra, Oriana or Lux would be very favorable for them. All in all, this is a very close match up and it’s anyone’s game.
Prediction: Longzhu 50% | CJ Entus 50%
Outcome: CJ Entus (2-1)
