Match Prediction: Invictus Gaming - Bilibili Gaming | LoL

There are several months left before the start of international battles within the title splits of the competitive League of Legends, but this does not mean that there will be no high-class LoL. It exists even now.

Demacia Cup 2022 is taking place in China - the largest event that gathers all representatives of the region in one place: from grandees, to club academics, from world champions, to amateurs. At the beginning of the race at Demacia Cup 2022, there were 33 teams, but now the top eight remain. The playoffs begin.

The main stage of Demacia Cup 2022 will be opened by Invictus Gaming – Bilibili Gaming. In the bo5 confrontation, the teams will determine who is worthy to go to the quarterfinals.

We figure out who will be stronger in this match and will be one step closer to triumph at the last major tournament of the season.

Bilibili Gaming Uniform

Let's start with a review of Bilibili Gaming kit. The Chinese TOP club in this match will act as a favorite.

Bilibili Gaming's chance of winning is 1.4. Quite confident pre-match championship for Bilibili Gaming.

You can justify such a balance of power before the match. Several facts point to this at once: the team had a worthy transfer season, strengthening itself with top performers and itself being a top club in the past, but having not seen victories for a long time.

Bilibili Gaming roster

As mentioned above, one of the gain factors is the roster of Bilibili Gaming. After the reshuffle, it looks like this:

  • Bin
  • XUN
  • Yagao
  • Elk
  • ON

Recent acquisitions include Yagao, Elk and ON. Of the three, the most titled is Yagao. Former midlaner JD Gamin has clearly strengthened the team, which we see in terms of performance.

Performance of Bilibili Gaming

Plunging into history, we see a mediocre game for several seasons. Let's dwell on the last one, after which Bilibili Gaming began large-scale rearrangements of the roster.

The team took the TOP-8 at the LPL Spring 2022, after which it fell into the TOP-10 at the LPL Summer 2022. Before the Demacia Cup, they released the youth team on the field as part of NEST 2022, where they took the TOP-3, knocking out, by the way, Invictus Gaming.

At Demacia Cup 2022, Bilibili Gaming started their performance from the second stage. There, the team outplayed MAX 2-0 and then lost to ThunderTalk Gaming, but advanced to the playoffs.

Heroes of Bilibili Gaming

At Demacia Cup 2022, the team plays a methoo: choose Gwen, Jayce, Graves, for Bin, signature Ryze from Yagao along with Yasuo and Syndra, junglers Kindred, Diana, Vi, shooter Lucian, Varus or Zeri. Supports ON and Jwei have no innovations: Yuumi, Karma, Nami.

Invictus Gaming kit

We continue the review of the match with an analysis of the form of Invictus Gaming. Another Chinese top club will approach the match as an underdog.

The bookmaker estimates Invictus Gaming's chance of success with odds around 2.8. The two-fold lag behind Bilibili is due to the same.

Like their counterparts, IG resorted to a radical reshuffling of the roster. They win back the lion's share in the formation of pre-match quotes.

Lineup IG

Like Bilibili, IG resorted to adding young performers to the roster. The main difference of the transfer window is that Invictus Gaming did not strengthen with a player of the Yagao level, and their roster for the tournament looks like this:

  • neny
  • Tianzhen
  • MG
  • Ahn
  • wink

They play exclusively with the Chinese five, without giving practice to the South Korean legionnaires GIDEON and Dove. Their business, and ours, is to look at the performance of the once world champions.

Performance of Invictus Gaming

The team spent the 2022 season much worse than Bilibili. If the opponents have an entry into the TOP-8 with 17 participants, then IG cannot boast of this either.

At the LPL Spring 2022, the team entered the TOP-14, and at the LPL Summer they climbed a step higher. The last tournament before Demacia Cup 2022 was NEST 2022, where the team took TOP-4 after being eliminated from there after losing to Bilibili Gaming,

Demacia Cup 2022 started from the second stage. In the first match, they got a technical victory against Weibo, and then closed Team WE dry, going through to the playoffs.

Heroes IG

Like Bilibili Gaming, the team does not invent the wheel, although they do have room for experimentation. Unlike Bilibili, they play, for example, Poppy in the woods and K`Sante on the solo top. Who will be the fight for the pico-bans stage is Ryze: the signature hero for the MG midlaner.

History of personal confrontations

Previously, the teams in these rosters did not play with each other. This fight will be the debut confrontation.

Match result of Invictus Gaming vs Bilibili Gaming

In this match, I do not expect an equal game. Bilibili Gaming look a cut above and I believe in their uncompromising victory. Give IG a maximum of 1 drawn card.

Result: 3-1 in favor of Bilibili Gaming.

According to leading bookmakers predictions, the team Bilibili Gaming are the favorite with average odds 1.298 at the moment. Respectively, bookmakers consider Invictus Gaming to be the outsider of the match with odds on a victory in the sum of about 5.697.
