The final two tickets to the group stage will be determined after the two playoffs played on the final day of the 2022 World Championship Warm-Up.
After the first two knockout matches, the opponents of EG and RNG were officially revealed. In the first match, the defending champion of MSI 2022 will only have to meet the representative from Japan – DFM. Meanwhile, the battle between Europe and North America will take place in playoff 2 to find out the owner of the ticket to advance to the group stage. Let’s make comments about these two matches with Tin Game Channel!
Predict the Knockout result at the Kick-off Round on October 5
Match 1: RNG vs DFM
The correlation of strength between RNG and DFM is probably something that anyone can evaluate, when the 4th seed of the LPL region proved to be completely superior to the representative from Japan. Although DFM’s morale is high with consecutive victories, having to face a representative from LPL in a bo5 match is clearly too big of a challenge for the No. 1 seed of the LJL region. .
Predict the result: RNG 3-0 DFM
Match 2: EG vs MAD
MAD is showing that they are not an easy opponent in the Play-In round when they just got a 3-1 victory over SGB. Before that, this team also almost made it against DRX if it wasn’t for Zeka’s excellence. Therefore, the match between EG and MAD promises to bring many interesting things.
At the moment, MAD is a slightly better team, at least in terms of performance when EG shows that they can lose to both LLL and DFM in a day without good performance. In addition, the North American representatives often face many difficulties when facing teams from Europe, so the disadvantage seems to be in favor of EG. However, MAD is not without its weaknesses. In the match against SGB, the weaknesses of MAD were also revealed, and if used better, the buffalo herd could make a difference. Therefore, EG also completely has a basis to defeat the 4th seed LEC in this important match.
Predicted Result: EG 2-3 MAD
