Noxiak : je suis kaas
Finishing 9th place in the regular LCS split, Roccat seemed to struggle for most of the split before bringing in highly experienced AD carry, Tabzz, who helped them win some games, especially when the team composition was designed to just protect him letting him deal all the damage. When Noxiak joined the team, he was able to use his experience from working with Fnatic to help the team improve further. From there, they looked like a solid team, but against teams of LCS calibre, they haven’t been able to close out the victory often. They did, however, recently beat Team Vitality who are a top 3 team in EU and they can use that game review what they did right and eliminate any mistakes for their future games.
On the side of Huma, after finishing 3rd in the regular EU CS split they then fought off both Inspire and Copenhagen Wolves to finish in 1st place in playoffs. Their team roster is a bunch of players who were rejected or left other teams and have bunched together to form their own team, out to prove themselves LCS worthy. As they finished 1st place, if they win the Bo5 against Roccat they go straight into LCS, or they will have to beat the loser of match 2 for another chance to get in. They have a good chance to get into LCS, and based on their EU CS playoff run, they look to be a strong team who can definitely take on Roccat.
Overall, this should be a close match as both these two teams are on the brink of LCS level, and whoever gets more practise, and research could be the team to take it.
Chance of victory: Team Roccat: 50% : Team Huma: 50%
