Team World Elite vs. OMG are matched up against each other for the Tencent LoL Pro League Series to be held Saturday March 19, 2016 in Day 3, Week 7 of the competition.
Both these teams are neck and neck placed at either second or equal second in their respective groups. Historically speaking, they are also very dominant teams within their region and both have performed very well.
World Elite have shown some very impressive reactionary play in their previous games. Generally speaking, when a split pusher gets collapsed on, he dies. But in World Elite’s case they rush to their damsel in distress to ensure that they get something in return. They’ve shown incredibly strong clutch team fights with well rounded team compositions.
OMG on the other hand are also very well rounded. They come out of pick and ban phase with a very strong ‘identity’ whether that be a team fight orientated team composition or one focused on split pushing. OMG show very strong communication when it comes to utilizing teleport to start fights and with extended team fights. Their early game is also very aggressive, with strong warding in the enemy jungle made by Fishball and 5.
Overall, OMG should be able to take this game with their strong picks and bans and both strong team fights and individual play. But this does not entirely rule WE out of the equation. Their niche picks such as Nautilius mid and Zero’s strong bard plays can potentially catch OMG off guard. If WE continue to ward the way they have been warding, they can undoubtedly come out ahead in skirmishers and split pushing.
Prediction: Team World Elite 51% | OMG 49%
