With only 3 days left until the Worlds 2022 finals at the Chase Arena in San Francisco, we invite you to do something carefree. Watching local tournaments in the League of Legends is a great option to pass the time.
As part of the Iberian Cup 2022 , 32 teams play, mainly from Spain. The local event for 20,000 euros is held under the auspices of LVP in Tarragona, Spain.
In the heat of battles at Worlds 2022, we missed the start of the event, where teams were eliminated from open qualifiers. Now we are talking about the second round and the match for reaching the quarterfinals of the tournament.
Notorious Team Heretics and Falcons will play in the b3 series. Let's try to understand which of the clubs will make it to the G2 Academy in the next round of the championship.
Team Heretics Uniform
Team Heretics will play as the favorite in the match. The chance of the “heretics” winning is estimated by a coefficient around 1.3.
Even in such a championship, the figure of 1.3 inspires confidence in the future. In the case of Team Heretics, I share it with the bookies.
The Spanish team returned to the competitive league of legends after a five-year break and did it loudly. The international composition is gaining momentum, but there is already something to brag about.
The Iberian Cup 2022 level tournament is a great help to further progress through the competitive ecosystem of the League of Legends and prepare for the Spanish franchise series.
This is what they are doing, and successfully.
Team Heretics line-up
Moving away from the model of a mono-national roster, Heretics came to an international composition with 5 legionnaires. In fact, they are only nominally a Spanish team.
The most experienced performer of the club is iBo. The Polish top liner managed to play for many clubs, among which there are several high-profile names: Team Kinguin, Movistar Riders, Rogue Esports Club, K1CK, Team BDS and finally UoL.
With Heretics iBo since May of this year, he has played a key role in the Spanish club's increased scoring.
Team Heretics results
The season started very hard for Heretics, with 8th place at Superliga Spring 2022. After a failure in the regional league, Team Heretics quickly returned to the ranks.
Already in the summer, the team took the summer split LVP Superliga Summer 2022, which gave them a ticket to the European Masters Summer 2022. The main tournament for TIR-2 teams for Heretics ended in a hard, but victory. In the EU Masters Summer 2022 finals, Heretics defeated Team BDS.
At the Iberian Cup 2022 , the team entered the quota from the first division of the Superliga. In the first round, the Heretics ran over the Cute Cat Egirls without issue, closing the series 2-0 in 44 minutes using a stand-in.
Heroes of Team Heretics
Aatrox appears most often in the TOP line (3 matches, 100% of wins). Also there are Ornn, Sejuani (2 matches, 50% of wins), Gnar (2 matches, 50% of wins).
Forester most often with Team Heretics Wukong (5 matches, 60% win rate). Xin Zhao, Nocturne and Poppy are also in the forest, but much more often Wukong (1 game each, except for Xin Zhao - 2 matches).
Viktor dominates the mid lane (3 matches, 100% win rate). Ahri also made three appearances. but only won once.
On Adc, Zari flickers most often, with a win rate of 66% of wins.
Support - Lulu. She won 2 matches in 4 fights.
The Falcons will play catch-up in this match. The chance of the bookmaker's club to win is estimated by the odds around 3.6.
3.6 for the club of Cesar Azpilicueta is quite a worthy indicator. So far, Falcons cannot come close to Team Heretics in terms of status and achievements, but we will not write off the club.
The team, like Team Heretics, is young, but promising. At least it seems so.
Composition of the Falcons
From here we can single out Aizhon, who managed to play for local Spanish clubs and Team Queso, as well as Midnight, who played for Movistar Riders,
Otherwise, the Falcons are a typical young team trying to climb the podium of the Spanish League of Legends. So far, this has not been successful.
Falcons are residents of the LVP Superliga, with the only difference being that they play in the second division of Spain. And that's a big difference.
During the season, the Falcons did not show outstanding results. The team took TOP-8 at LVP SL 2nd Division 2022 Spring, and later TOP-6 at LVP SL 2nd Division 2022 Spring.
Before the Iberian Cup, the team made it to the playoffs of the summer LVP Superliga, where they finished 4th.
In the first round of the Iberian Cup itself, the Falcons played against Zeta, beating them twice. Now they have a more difficult test.
In their games, they are guided by the preferences of the players. The most common appearances were Jinx (14 matches, 57% wins), Lulu (11 matches, 54% wins), Viego (10 games, 50% wins), Nautilus (8 matches, 62% wins).
History of personal confrontations
Previously, the teams did not play each other in official matches.
In this fight, I expect a confident game from Heretics. Having recharged after winning the EU Masters 2022, “heretics” should take this meeting in class. Most likely, if there are no substitutions, they will finish the match with a score of 2-0.
Result: Team Heretics win with a score of 2-0.
Team Heretics are listed as the favorites of the match in the majority of bookmakers and odds on them are equal to 1.184. Falcons, in turn, are the outsiders of the match. Odds on their victory are about 3.98.
