Esports News – An excruciating 3 months of battles and matches ended the League of Legends Pro League Summer Split, and only two teams came on top. Setting the bar high for other players and sitting atop their respective banners, Invictus Gaming led the East Region while Rogue Warriors dominated the West region.
While the Spring Split winners will represent their regions in the 2018 Mid-Season Invitational, the winners of the Summer split joins the other two Chinese teams in the 2018 LoL World Championship. Two groups of seven teams each from home venues and conferences are divided based on their Summer Season performances.
All the matches were in a best-of-three format, giving each team a chance to play a total of 19 matches. It included Double and Single Round Robin matches where all the groups faced each other one by one—one point for each win and minus one point for each loss. The total scores in the end determines the next tournaments for each team. Invictus Gaming and Rogue Warriors both get a two-round bye then heads straight to the semi-finals. The second place team will get one bye to the Quarter Finals, while the third and fourth teams will qualify for the playoffs without byes. The bottom three on the ranking, however, will not qualify for any tournament.
For the most part of the battles within the East region, a number of teams made impressive last-minute surprises. With that, the teams advancing to the playoffs are now determined. Following Invictus Gaming’s 18-1 total tally are Royal Never Give Up (13-5), JingDongGaming (13-5), and Suning Gaming (10-9). The bottom three that will watch the winning teams from the sidelines are LGD Gaming (9-10), Bilibili Gaming (6-13), and Vici Gaming (2-17).
Over the West, the battles are much tougher as the final results showed scores far closer to one another. Leading the rankings is Rogue Warriors with a 14-4 tally. Following the top team’s footsteps are EDward Gaming (11-8) and TopSports Gaming (10-9). The last spot either goes to FunPlus Phoenix (8-10) or Snake Esports (7-10) as the latter still has two games to play for the following weeks. But mathematically speaking, Team We (6-13) and Oh My God (5-14) are officially eliminated from the playoffs even if they manage to win all of their upcoming matches.

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.
