Longzhu Gaming vs SBENU SONICBOOM – LCK 2016 – Week 5 – Day 1 – Preview

Longzhu vs SBENU Sonicboom are matched up against each other for the League of Legends Champion Korea will be held Friday, February 12, 2016 – Day 1 Week 5.


Longzhu, formerly Incredible Miracle, have made a complete overhaul of their roster coming into 2016 LCK. Star names such as CoCo and Chaser have achieved superb domestic results in 2015 and were bright lights on otherwise middling teams. Most interesting is Flame’s return to Korea, the proven carry top laner that didn’t receive much play behind the more supportive style player on his team, Archon. During the first few weeks Flame has been subbed out in favour of Expession, an indicator of possible synergy issues. With this amount of great mechanical players, Longzhu needs to form an identity and work out who will be taking resources and who will be the carry players. As of now they still need to work out some of the kinks in their teamplay, however Longzhu is a talent-loaded team with an incredibly high ceiling.

Bottom lurking team SBENU SONICBOOM, has yet to take a win a third of the way into LCK. With no standout performances from any of the players, Gongzhu is expected to effortlessly outlane SBENU and take the win.

Predictions: 70% Longzhu l SBENU SONICBOOM 30%
