The end of the season is almost here and I think, with this week included, NRG and Phoenix1 still have a chance at making it into the six spot. Obviously it’ll be rough for either of them to make it and the stars would need to align, but it should be possible with six matches left. Here’s where everyone stands going into today.
1. Team SoloMid (12-0)
2. Immortals (11-1)
3. Liquid, Cloud9 (7-5)
5. Team EnVy, Counter Logic Gaming (6-6)
7. Apex (5-7)
8. NRG Esports (3-9)
9. Phoenix1 (2-10)
10. Echo Fox (1-11)
Part of those stars aligning is today as both of them face off against each other. The other part is CLG losing to IMT, but that shouldn’t be any problem. The cool thing about today is that Riot is still focusing on important match ups and will be showcasing Xmithie and Reignover today. I don’t know if there’s a featured match up for the second game, but I don’t see why not. Predicted winners are represented in bold. (Overall: 38-12)
- IMT vs CLG
- Phoenix1 vs NRG
Things kick off tonight at 5 p.m. CDT and can be watched here.
