The LPLOL Split 2 2018: Division 1 kicked off a couple of weeks ago and so far, each side has played three games. This is the 2nd Portuguese Split of the year. The first split was won by none other than K1CK eSports Club who were victorious against Grow uP eSports in the playoffs. Let’s take a look at some of this round’s matchups.
After three games played, K1CK eSports Club is already on their way to their 2nd Split victory of the year. The side won against Doxa Gaming and Hexagone eSports while playing a draw against For The Win eSports. K1CK is sitting at the top with seven points in the bag. The side has a habit of winning trophies in the minor leagues of LoL in the region.
In 2018, apart from the playoffs victory, they finished first in the LPLOL 2018 Split 1. In 2017, they were victorious in both splits. The side will be looking to successfully defend the title this time around. The João “AlternativeX” Parada and Rúben “Rhuckz” Barbosa duo will be looking to dominate the bot lane. These two have been quite successful so far and there are no signs of stopping them any time soon.
YNG Sharks have no prior history in the professional landscape of League of Legends. The side has been recently recruited to play the LPLOL Split 2 2018: Division 1. Looking at the inexperience of the newbie side you might think that they may be struggling in the Spilt. However, after playing three games, the side has seven points. They managed to win against Doxa Gaming, 2-0.
They also showed a dominating performance against the struggling side of Hexagone eSports and had a draw against Grow uP eSports. No matter what the critics say, they are surely on their way to a qualification spot. Their next match against the kings of the league will be their first proper test. However, looking at their rank, we can surely expect a match full of entertainment for the spectators. The Sharks might be confident for a victory, but K1CK will be no pushovers.
The match could end as a draw between the two talent sides. However, the reigning champions will surely outperform the newbies.
K1CK eSports Club 2-0 YNG Sharks
Grow uP eSports lack solid results in the Split at the moment. In the two games played, they have managed one series win while drawing the other one. They were victorious against XD eSports, yet played out a tie against YNG Sharks. The team has four points and will be confident for a victory in their upcoming game since the side knows what it’s dealing with.
In Split 1 of 2018, they finished in third place and lost to K1CK in the playoffs. This time around, in Split 2, they won’t have the services of Pedro “GodsClouD” Pereira. The Portuguese player was a dominant force in the top and was critical to their third spot finish. Now the role is taken by Bruno “Nithien” Ferreira, who needs to get going fast. Before the last Split, the team finished at the 8th spot in 2017. However, this will not be happening this time around because of the decent lineup of the side. The team will surely be confident against the struggling newbie team Hexagone eSports.
Just like YNG Sharks, Hexagone eSports have no prior record in the competitive scene of LoL. The side has recently been signed up to participate in Split 2. They have played three games so far but have managed to win only one. They lost to Electronik Generation and the reigning champions, K1CK eSports Club, while securing a solid win against Doxa Gaming. It seems the side is doing just OK at the moment. However, these average performances won’t get them a playoffs finish.
This season, the objective of the side will be to avoid the relegation zone. Looking at their roster they might just manage to do so.
