    It's the first season where all seven KESPA teams have gotten both rosters into Champions. MKZ, one of the two amateur teams, is basically IM rejects. Thankfully there is still NLB, but the recent Champions qualifiers showed a widening gap between the KESPA teams and amateurs.

    Anyway, things I'm looking forward to for this season include Betkyo's hair and KT B with that jungle Eeyore.

    Line-up for this Week:

    Wednesday
    Group A: SSG Blue vs IM#1
    Group B: KTB vs NJBS

    Friday
    Group C: SSG White vs SKT T1 S
    Group D: KTA vs JAS

    Looks like only KTB vs NJBS will be interesting, the others should be clear victories by the favourites.

    Shitty timing. It's 1st semester finals week here. I have tests left on Thursday and Friday, so I won't have time to watch the opening day ㅠㅠ

    It has begun! hype hype! DoA and Chobra casting since Monte is on vacation.

    Good first game. SSG Blue goes with a pure pick comb, gets early lead and never let go.

    Turns out there's a new English HD stream that doesn't require subscription. I've never heard of hitbox.tv, so I have no idea if it will have VODs or a restream though.

    Hitbox is the relaunch of own3d.tv, same scummy owners.
    Still, free hd stream is free.

    Watching OGN then watching NA/EU LCS is just hilarious.

    The level is just so much higher.

    Not quite as bad as korean SC2 compared to foreign sc2, but still pretty sad.

    Anyone have a VOD for this? It was way too early for me today.

    Save yourself some time, and watch this instead. Pretty accurate summary

    I thought KTB was better than that. They got rolled.

    Allright, let's see if SKT T1 S can put up a fight or follow IM's path (please no, have mercy).

    SKT T1 S need to work on their teamfights. Such a nice comb but couldn't do much with it. Meanwhile SSG White kicks and grabs them into Shockwaves followed by Headshot. Perma bann Thresh for Mata too, I feel like he finally succeeded Madlife.

    Finally? Mata has been better than Madlife since season 4 started. His only competition for awhile was Mandu during Champions Winter, but there's no doubt that Mata is the best support in Korea.

    I didn't get to much of the first game except a couple of minutes looking over some kid's shoulder on the subway. This second game is classic White though. Getting overconfident against a team they know they should beat, and going balls deep every play. To S's credit, they were patient when they needed to be, and sandbagged a little bit to bait White into giving up a bigger lead. I really like this team when they play this way (see: Blaze vs. S from Masters), but they are so wildly inconsistent.

    EDIT: Did some LPL team show up dressed as KT Arrows today? Holy lord this aggression

    Interesting games, I'm just wondering why when korea shows time after time how strong nami is that EU/NA don't play it.

    I think there are only a few western supports that have the patience to play Nami properly. You can't just toss out Q, you have to wait and hold it for a time where it can't be dodged. I would love to see a comparison of hit percentage with Nami's Q by region.

    SKT T1 K repeated SSG Blue and schooled IM#2. Happy how onpoint ManDu was in the 2nd game, rightfully got him MVP. He and Bengi slumped the hardest during spring IMHO. Also Faker with the kill during the 1 vs 3 chase. SSG Blue vs SKT T1 K gonna be semi/final quality game.

    OGN now puts up all korean VODs on their Youtube channel in 720p: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...gapIjA-zUAGHIL. Maybe they do the same with the english ones later. All usual YT VOD channels were recently hit by CJ E&M issuing copyright strikes.

    Today is all about CJ vs Challengers although MKZ consists mostly of former IM members. No clue about BigFile Miracle, how strong are they? Also there will be a best of 3, 1v1, Faker vs Dade on the 30th at 6pm KST. It's probably (Reddit isn't sure) only streamed through the SKT T LoL app but I expect a VOD to pop up soon after. Rules are the same as in All-Stars (100CS/First Blood/First Tower).
