Posted 5th December 2017 By: Kyle-Tipify Staff
The 2017 season of the Korean Esports Association (KeSPA) Cup ended as KT Rolster—after struggling performances in season 6 and 7—claims the championship title of the tournament. KT defeated Longzhu in a best-of-five series that stretch all 5 games.
After rebuilding its roster in season 6, KT was tagged as a superteam with the lineup of a world champion comprising of Mata, Smeb,—a top League player—and Deft. But it was a different story in season 7. Their map awareness was poor and decision making was subpar. SKT swept the “KT Superteam” in the LCK tournament. But, when season 8 came, KT entered the tournament without changing the lineup, as the team proved that it was the smart decision after taking down renewed-roster in Longzhu in the KeSPA Cup Finals.
Longzhu fronted its new lineup in this tournament with the reunion of Peanut, GorillA, and PraY. LZ opted to anchor a team with former KT rosters was also considered as a superteam by fans. And the Korean team proved that in this Cup after taking down the great SKT during the KeSPA semis. But, the finals series against KT was like a coin toss. Both teams traded wins until the final game—the decider. LZ had control, but after a comeback from KT where they were able to steal the Baron along with more objectives, KT had a chance to win the game and the series. The final game went past the 50-minute mark when another messy team fight occurred in the bottom lane. KT’s perfectly timed ultimates were enough to take down LZ and push down the lane. After KT’s grueling comeback, they were crowned as the tournament’s champions. While a few issues surfaced, the Korean team proved that they are not to be messed with.

When you first start out you’ll be tempted to try to bet as frequently as possible, don’t. Wait for matches with good odds where you or the predictors know the teams. Never force yourself to bet, bet on matches that you are confident in. You may go days or weeks without placing a bet, you’re not in a rush, wait for bets you are comfortable and confident in and profit should follow.
If there’s any uncertainty, don’t place a bet. Save your skins for another day. There will be plenty of other matches that you can bet on.
Betting is always risky, that’s unavoidable. But staying inside a ‘safe zone’ will help cover you off from some really silly bets. When starting out with a low inventory, large bets placed on matches with 80%+ odds aren’t going to return much in general (on lounge, even less due to the inconsistent returns) but you’re still risking a large amount of your inventory for very little.
Equally, odds below 30% sound very, very attractive with huge returns possible. But if you don’t know the teams or all the details, it’s very possible the team doesn’t stand any chance. If you think there might be a chance, reduce the size of the stake or consider an ICB.
Always bet with a percentage of your inventory. Think, what happens if you lose an ‘All in’ bet, do you stop betting for the rest of your life, or just get your wallet out and go again? You may think there’s no risk, however there is always risk. If you’re placing a high bet, stick to an absolute maximum of 20% of your betting inventory.
Always leave enough to bet another day.
If you’re feeling angry or frustrated, your judgement get’s very cloudy. You’ll make a stupid bet and lose. If you just lost a big bet or are on a losing streak, instead of trying to force a bet, you should take a step back, calm down and just take a break, come back refreshed with a fresh mindset.
Betting blind is a purely relying on luck, if the underdog odds are 30%, that definitely doesn’t mean the team has a 30% chance of winning. It just means 30% of the betting community chose that team. A late roster change could mean there’s zero chance for the team to win. Check in with our predictions to help give you some more background on the game.
Use the lounge odds tracker to predict the final odds as the start of the match get’s closer. If the odds are increasing/decreasing for the team you intend to bet on the return may not outweigh the risk anymore. A huge significant switch of odds at the last moment may mean that something shady is going on, mostly in very low tier games, or a sudden announcement, E.g standin may have occurred.
Bookies will put up their odds based on their own expectations, as the bets start coming in they'll tweak the odds to ensure it's still profitable for them. That early stage is key to getting an edge on the bookies.
As soon as you feel like you have to bet again to recoup loses, you’ll feel compelled to make bigger bets with bigger risks. This often starts an endless cycle driving your losses further and further. Instead, after a big loss, take a day off from betting (or a week if was really big). .Keep to the proper bet sizing based on the risk of the match no matter what. You are not in a race to win it back, just take it easy.
Do not blindly follow betting site odds and think that they are correct to the true odds. If a betting site has ‘Team A’ as a heavy favorite, it does not always mean that it’s an easy win for ‘Team A’.
SK beat Na’Vi… Na’Vi beat E-Frag. That means SK can beat E-Frag now, right? No.
There are many factors which contribute to the team winning a match, these factors such as player performance, map selection, strategy and tactics which may not apply to other teams.
