As far as predictions go, G2 vs. EG is tantamount to “Groundhog’s Day.” These two teams have already faced off numerous times over the last week or so and the LEC representatives were always able to best their North American counterparts.
Sometimes their wins were as lopsided as it gets. Other times they weren’t quite as commanding. Regardless, they always got the job done which is ultimately the only thing that matters.
There’s simply too large of a gap between G2 and EG and, by the looks of it, it has gotten even larger with G2 taking down both T1 and Royal Never Give Up — back-to-back.
The fact that they could not only tango with LCK and LPL royalty but even win — despite having two rookies under their banner — is awe-inspiring. There’s really no other way to put it. This wasn’t “supposed” to happen, and yet here we are, on the brink of G2 writing history.
And their wins weren’t flukes, either. They really were better than T1 and Royal Never Give Up — faster on the map, more decisive, better individually, more in sync as a unit, and so on. They were absolutely sublime and, needless to say, we can’t wait to once again see them trade blows on the Summoner’s Rift, even if its against a team as flawed and exploitable as Evil Geniuses.
G2 vs. EG Predictions | Inherently Lopsided
Had G2 lost to T1 and RNG, we would’ve been more inclined to believe in EG’s chances. Now, though, it’s safe to say that that ship has sailed. EG, too, have improved, but nowhere near enough to actually stand a chance against a team like G2.
They are now widely considered as one of the biggest favorites to win this year’s Mid-Season Invitational, and while it’s still a to too early to board any kind of hype train, their momentum and ability to perform at the highest of levels — and in the face of the stiffest opposition imaginable — cannot be denied.
One thing’s for certain: if Rasmus “caPs” Winther and Victor “Flakked” Lirola Tortosa keep the course, G2 Esports will stand a very good chance at claiming the MSI throne. Whodathunkit!
