Games to Watch

The week is ending with an absolute banger as the top two teams (at least to start the week) LNG and Team WE will face off on Sunday. If both teams win their other games this week (which is likely since WE faces TT and LNG doesn’t play another match this week), this series will knock one team out of an undefeated record.

In addition to that series, there are a couple of matches between teams either at the top of the standings, or that we thought would be atop the standings to start the year. First, EDG is taking on JD Gaming. JDG is a surprise so far, sitting at 1-1, however, their one loss was to a strong Invictus Gaming team.

Next. 20 champions that dominate pro play but suck in solo queue. dark

On the other hand, we have last year’s World finalist, Suning Gaming, taking on the 2019 World Champions FPX. Both teams came out of the gate a bit slow, at 1-1. Suning lost to a surprising RNG team last week, while FPX fell to EDG.
