Roccat vs. Origen – EU LCS – Week 8 – Day 2 – Preview

Roccat vs. Origen are matched up against each other for the European League of Legends Series to be held Friday, March 11, 2016 – Week 8 – Day 2

Fredy122 : SoaZ

Airwaks : Amazing

Betsy : xPeke

Tabzz : Zven

Noxiak : Mithy


Roccat need to obtain victories to try and either climb out of the relegation, or to get a higher seeding in the relegation tournament. Either way, they could try and get a win here as Origen have been faltering in recent weeks. With Tabzz and Noxiak in the bot lane, they could set up a protect the AD carry composition, as Tabzz is a veteran player who’s mechanics are top notch.

For Origen, with xPeke back in the roster, they have their same roster which made it to the World’s semi-final last season, whilst a lot has changed, the in-game shotcalling of xPeke is back, and it may inspire the rest of the team to play better, and avoid tilt if they die, like SoaZ seems to. It could be the start of a turnaround as playoffs draws nearer.

Overall, it is likely that Origen wins this, as their players are mechanically better, but if Roccat can get an early lead, and shut down Soaz’s splitpushing pressure, they could get a win here also.

Chance of victory: Roccat: 35% : Origen: 65%
