LGD vs. V3
This got more interesting because LGD havn't won a game yet and they are not playing like they were in the spring. They are not on the same page and even missed a ban during draft phase. LGD early game looked better, but their main issue is still mid-to-late and they completely threw them Saturday. V3 came out looking solid against Rainbow7, and even UoL, who looked like they will get out of play-ins. V3 are a top-heavy team lead by Bugi, and they have a real shot with how bad LGD have been playing. V3 have shown the ability to play an aggressive style and a more objective game. If they can hold LGD's early game and draft to scale, I believe they can beat LGD through macro and team work.
Prediction: V3 Win
V3 Players to Target: Everyone
UoL vs. R7
Unicorns are playing at an uptempo pace on par with LPL teams and are pressuring teams into mistakes and late rotations around the map. They are good at pressuring a side lane making the teams they play to have to choose between saving a turret or split pushing to gain map control. UoL shine when they catch other players off guard and then full-team commit to an objective. I think they come out here and smash. Rainbow7 didn't look good even against LGD; they got some lucky fights but
