LGD Gaming Can Start Planning For The Next Season

LGD Gaming and TT Gaming were the two worst sides in the league last season with a similar record. It will hurt LGD Gaming’s pride to see TT Gaming improve while they’re still struggling at the bottom.

LGD Gaming have just been far too vulnerable to attacks with 15 deaths per game rate (second highest) and 7.4 towers lost per game (also second highest). What makes this worse is that TT Gaming may not be the best side from a defensive standpoint but they’re still one of the strongest teams when they go on the offensive. It’s hard to not see the likes of Jinjai, the support, not get a bit of a battering in this match, having died 3.81 times per game this year.

LGD Gaming haven’t settled on a starting team with so many roster changes last month either. This season feels like it has already ended with lots of internal and external decisions that need sorting. With two disappointing seasons on the trot, it’s a matter of time before the brand around the team will be associated with failure. They need to work on that expeditiously.

This Is A Must Win For TT Gaming

This is a massive game for TT Gaming, which makes it massive for League of Legends betting. It is arguably the easiest tie they’re going to get before the league season ends. They’ll have a mountain to climb if they don’t win this one and will be feeling the heat after losing their last match. A win here feels quite decisive.

In a team sport, it’s not often that one player can change a team’s fortunes but new bot laner, Kepler, has done just. He has been simply outstanding since joining the side this may and is largely responsible for the team’s 13.2 kills per game for this season. His own record for the season reads 5.38 kills per game, 2.31 deaths per game, 5.06 assists per game and 4.51 KDA. He has taken the offensive burden for the side and everyone else has rallied behind him.

He will be raring to go in this one from the first minute. TT Gaming have taken an aggressive approach all season with a first blood rate of 61.3% and first tower rate of 51.6%. There should be a lot of kills for Kepler and co in the early game, which should put them on course for victory.

LGD Gaming vs TT Gaming Predictions

This would’ve been a harder LoL prediction earlier in the season but seems fairly straightforward now. LGD Gaming have been a mess for a while and TT Gaming have made same shrewd additions to their side, giving them a very real chance of making the playoffs after a disastrous campaign last season.

LGD Gaming could take a few lessons from TT Gaming. It won’t be an easy game by any means but we think there’s just too much on the line for TT Gaming to not see this one through.
