Esports News – After winning the CBLoL Winter Finals, KaBuM! e-Sports becomes the only Brazilian team in League of Legends to represent the country twice in the World Championship. And with that achievement, they cement global history. The team will now go from 2017 relegation to the 2018 Worlds—and if they manage to perform well in the play-in stage, they will advance to the group stage together with the best teams from different regions.
The journey of KaBuM! to the most prestigious LoL tournament in the world was filled with challenges. They were one of the underdogs from the previous season. In fact, Zantins, the team’s top laner, summed up their 2018 season by saying: “If someone told me last year that we were going to win the next two splits, I would laugh and think it would not happen. The relegation and all the other difficult moments we had were essential for us to achieve our goals, so I do not think the past has to be forgotten.”
After the 2014 World Championship, the team lost players and struggled to complete a full roster for the next matches lined-up. Because of this, they were relegated to the Challenger Circuit—the second division of CBLoL where teams have to undergo a promotion series to qualify for the next split.
The team earned promotion in 2017 and earned a higher position at the CBLoL with a new structure. They introduced a more consistent lineup with the help of foreign coach Jean-Francois “Nuddle” Carron. KaBuM! Aimed higher and won the summer stage of this year’s CBLoL to represent Brazil in the Mid-Season Invitational.
Along the way, the team had to bid goodbye to Nuddle before the winter season. The hole he left behind saw KaBuM! struggling once again at the beginning of this year until the arrival of their new coach, Lee “Hiro” Woo Seok. This led to a clash of cultures between Brazil and South Korea, but Hiro evidently “put the house in order” while revealing the gaming potentials of KaBuM!. The team won the regular season title for the second time this year after spending half of the season with Hiro. With their confirmed slots for the World Championship, we’ll see more of Hiro and his team in the international stage.

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.
