Esports News – The 2018 World Championship Finals of League of Legends left an important mark in esports history. The event, held in Incheon, South Korea, showcased live performances of characters through modern augmented reality technology in the opening ceremony. But much more surprising than that was Invictus Gaming beating Europe’s Fnatic to become the first Chinese team to win the League of Legends World Championship.
Read on below for a recap of the tournament:
Riot Games presented their very own fictional pop group K/DA using AR to perform alongside pop stars Madison Beer, Miyeon and Soyeon of (G)I-dle, and Jaira Burns. The AR presentation was already reported by the organization weeks before the opening, but it was still meant to be an exclusive performance for Korean fans watching at home. This isn’t the first time Riot Games introduced their AR for an opening ceremony. Last year at Worlds 2017, an AR Elder Dragon flew through the Bird’s Nest in China, surprising everyone watching the show live and at home. With that, the League of Legends World Finals remained as the single most watched esports events around the globe considering both tv broadcasts and streaming services.
The K/DA skins shown at the ceremony are now available for purchase to get players ready for the Worlds Afterparty event. They can still use the skins for gaming purposes in the future.
Both Fnatic and Invictus Gaming finished their semi-finals run with a 3-0 undefeated tally last month. But it was Invictus Gaming who dominated the best-of-five match in Incheon after they conquered a 26-minute match to go 1-0 and up.
Fnatic progresses in games two and three, but their momentum wasn’t enough to beat the Chinese team. Invictus’ solo laners were unstoppable all throughout the tournament. Top laner Kang “TheShy” Seung-lok went on and continued to terrorize Fnatic’s members in the lane; one of the best highlights was when he faced Fnatic’s rookie top Gabriël “Bwipo” Rau on the top side of the map. Meanwhile, mid laner Song “Rookie” Eui-jin proved that he’s one of the best players under Invictus by consistently winning his mid lane matchup and roaming around the map.
More rounds have passed and Fnatic still finds its members running behind kills and gold before the 15-minute mark. Invictus Gaming sealed the game in the third round and raised the Summoner’s Cup for China.

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.
