G2 Esports vs LOUD Preview and Predictions: MSI 2023 Play-Ins

Brazil's “FaZe Clan” meets the Kings of Europe in this transatlantic skirmish for the bracket stage lead in MSI 2023. LEC vs CBLoL. G2 Esports vs LOUD.

The CBLoL's most popular roster is making its way to the international stage, and they know how to make the fans roar. As the Grand Final winners of the Brazilian regional league, LOUD is no stranger to pulling off stylish (albeit risky) plays and reaping the rewards. But their adaptability is about to be put to the test. For them to win their first match-up in MSI, LOUD will have to go through G2 Esports, who has been strategically honing its blunder-forcing macroplay ever since its rocky Group Stage in the LEC's Spring Split. If you're betting on the mid-season invitationals, this G2 Esports vs LOUD preview guide is for you!

Many believe that the LEC's best qualities manifest themselves in this one team. G2's brilliant playmaking, fast predictions and incredible line-ups have all earned the Caps-led roster a spot in the international invitational. And despite faltering in their recent matches against relatively new teams, and ultimately losing their title of EMEA's best to the MAD Lions, their presence in the MSI 2023 play-ins once again proves that there's no substitute for experience.

Caps has long since been dubbed as the best mid-laner in the Europe-led league, and his recent performance in the LEC playoffs proves this.


As ostentatious as they are clever, the CBLoL's most entertaining org makes the stage to stake their claim on the MSI trophy. They made a powerful show at their Grand Finals series weeks ago where they denied their opposition a single win in their bo5. Their boldness is their calling card and is something a lot of teams should be careful of, especially when Park “Croc” Jong-hoon is fed. Moreover, the team more often than not rallies around their star ADC Route in the midgame before devastating the enemy team in flashy teamfights.

LOUD Roster

  • Leonardo “Robo” Souza
  • Park “Croc” Jong-hoon
  • Thiago “tinowns” Sartori
  • Moon “Route” Geom-su
  • Denilson “Ceos” Gonçalves
