Team Vitality vs. Elements – EU LCS – Week 7 – Day 2 – Preview

Team Vitality vs. Elements are matched up against each other for the European League of Legends Series to be held Friday, February 26, 2016 – Week 7 – Day 2

Cabochard : Steve

Shook : Gilius

Nukeduck : Eika

Hjarnan : MrRalleZ

kaSing : sprattel


Vitality are looking for simple wins to boost their standings to playoffs, as getting either 1st or 2nd place gives them a bye, and as 3 teams are currently tied in 1st, games against the ‘lower 4’ teams in the league they need to be picked up in order to keep them in the 1st place run. Playing off Cabochard on a carry, and Nukeduck and Hjarnan dishing out the damage in late game fights, Vitality are able to snowball leads easily, and from there end games swiftly.

For Elements, MrRalleZ needs to get fed enough and position well to carry late team fights, as well as putting Eika on a wave-clearing control mage, to stop sieges and delay the game long enough to get his other members strong enough to fight. However, the top lane match up should lose for Elements, meaning Gilius is going to have to spend time top to stop Cabochard snowballing.

Overall, as reflected in the standings Vitality are a better team than Elements, and so should be able to pick up the victory here.

Chance of victory: Team Vitality: 80% : Elements: 20%
