Lol Pickems - Player Tips
When it comes to players, there are two main things to consider: The number of games they will play, and previous performance. So if a player will play more games at Worlds, they are more likely to get more total kills.
For these catagories, the number of games is very important:
- Who will play the most different Champions at Worlds?
- Who will get the most First Blood Kills at Worlds?
And also consider who will get at least one pentakill. If a player plays more games, they are more likely to win these categories. For this, look at Major region teams in play-ins, that are expected to do well overall, like RNG, who will play more games than teams starting in groups.
The player who will get the best KDA is tricky, as there's a ton of factors, but for who will get the Pentakills, we have some stats for you. A number of players on the all-time most pentakills list will be at Worlds:
- Ruler (7)
- Comp (7)
- Zven (7)
- Gala (4)
- Hope (4)
- Unforgiven (4)
As always, the list is mostly AD Carries, but one of these players is a great pick for at least one Pentakill.
Lol Pickems Champions Tips
The Worlds meta is always hard to predict, as teams are playing on a brand new patch. To guess what champions we'll be seeing though, always check the patch notes for who's been buffed or nerfed.
Some Champions recently buffed we'll likely see are:
- Maokai (Jungle)
Of course, if the meta fits around their playstyles. Some other we've seen lots this year that will likely feature less after a nerf are:
