LoL Worlds 2018 Daily Update October 14, 2018

And with that, the first two teams for the knockout rounds are set! The next group to close out group play is Group A. StatXP favorite Flash Wolves was stunned in a backdoor win by G2 Esports, but we still expect FW to win the group and be one of the favorites in the knock-out round.

Competition for the #2 seed is close between G2 and the struggling South Korean side Afreeca Freecs. AF desperately needs to avenge its loss to G2 (or to upset FW) to give itself a chance at advancing. Our model gives them a 61% chance of beating G2 and a 36% chance of upsetting FW. The model still does not think very highly of Vietnamese side PVB but if they can pull another unlikely upset, then Group A could end up totally scrambled!
