Esports News – The League of Legends World Championship is underway. Less than 2 months from now, and we’ll witness the most prestigious tournament in LoL gracing the lands of South Korea. 24 teams will compete for the Summoner’s Cup this year. Here’s the breakdown of the final schedule from October to November, as well as the teams heading to the group stages.
Dates: October 1 – 4, 6 – 7
Dates: October 10 – 17
Dates: October 20 – 21
Dates: October 27 – 2
Date: November 3
Team Liquid and 100 Thieves currently dominate the North American region, with 8 wins and 4 losses each. At the end of Spring Split, Liquid surpassed 100 Thieves’ ranking and landed in first place. The competition still boils between the two, so we are more likely to witness another round. The first place in the Summer Split will bag the first spot at the World Championship, while the second place get to participate as a second seed.
In Europe, Misfits Gaming is leading the standings at 10 wins and 2 losses. They weren’t able to compete in the Spring Split playoffs, but they exerted outstanding performances in the Summer Split—enough to give them points for the World Championship. With these impressive efforts from the team, it is easy to remind the fans of Misfits’ excellent performance during the 2017 World Championship QuarterFinals against SK Telecom 1.
Representatives of the LCK won 5 out of the 7 World Championship seasons. The region sees a tight competition between Griffin, Gen.G Esports, and KING-ZONE DragonX in the Summer Split. Gen.G Esports, the revamped team of KSV and Samsung Galaxy, won last year’s season, defeating KING-ZONE DragonX.
The LPL has two separate divisions prior to the World Championship. At the moment, Invictus Gaming and Rouge Warriors are the top contenders of the first group, while Royal Never Give Up and Edward Gaming represent the second group. Invictus only has one loss all throughout the Summer Split, but Rouge Warriors’ midlaner and captain Kim “Doinb” Tae-sang is expected by many to push his team in strategic team fights.
So far, everything is predictable in the LMS. “The region with the least surprises”, according to some. As expected, Flash Wolves remain unbeatable in the Taiwan/Hong Kong/Macau League. They have consistently defeated all the teams in the LMS, and will now face other contenders in the Summer Split.

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.
