“The battle of teams that were hyped up, but so far couldn’t live up to it” could be the title of G2 Esports vs Bilibili Gaming.
The last day of the Swiss Stage is coming, as tomorrow the last 3 Knockout Stage spots will be filled, while 3 more teams join those who’ve been already eliminated. Round 5 kicks off with KT Rolster vs Dplus KIA, followed by Fnatic vs Weibo Gaming. The Grand Finale of the first half of Main Stage will be G2 Esports vs Bilibili Gaming – two teams which have to rise from the ashes to prove everyone wrong.
G2 Esports vs Bilibili Gaming Preview
G2 Esports have missed two opportunities to qualify for the Knockout Stage so far. After overcoming the odds and beating Dplus KIA and Weibo Gaming in the Bo1 segment of Swiss Stage, everyone believed they could take on bigger challenges. While they made some mistakes against DK and WBG, their great teamfighting made up for it, proving that the LEC is worthy of the “major region” title.
Against LNG Esports however, they fumbled their draft twice, giving key picks to their opponents. Fans have hoped that they learned their lesson and prepared better, but after NRG defeated them 2-0, nothing is sure anymore. Hopefully G2 still has an ace up their sleeve – they will need it.
G2 Esports Roster
- Sergen “BrokenBlade” Celik
- Martin “Yike” Sundelin
- Rasmus “Caps” Borregaard Winther
- Steven “Hans sama” Liv
- Mihael “Mikyx” Mehle
Bilibili Gaming is very similar to G2 Esports, as they weren’t able to realize their full potential – or at least the performance everyone hoped they could put out. While Bin and his teammates managed to defeat KT Rolster and Fnatic, none of the matches were as dominant as the victories of JD Gaming and LNG Esports, two of the other big LPL names. They also suffered an lighting fast loss against JDG, and T1 also made short work of them on Saturday, beating them 2-0 – and one of the wins was through a lvl1 counter-invade.
While Bin had stable showings, the rest of BLG isn’t doing so hot – but maybe the edge of the abyss is what they need.
Bilibili Gaming Roster
- Chen “Bin” Ze-Bin
- Peng “Xun” Li-Xun
- Zeng “Yagao” Qi
- Zhao “Elk” Jia-Hao
- Luo “ON” Wen-Jun
G2 Esports vs Bilibili Gaming Predictions
Two squads, several wrongs to right. G2 Esports needs to be much smarter in the Rift, as they usually have the right tools, and if they get to a certain point in the game, their teamfighting is incredibly strong. Bilibili Gaming needs to push early game like a true LPL team if they want to win – but they need to step up as well. It’s anyone’s game, but the team who rises can go to the greatest heights!
