Fnatic vs Cloud9: Who Will Win the Semifinals at League of Legends World Championship 2018?
Fnatic has been considered one of the best teams in the world and was expected to win against Cloud9 in the semifinals of the 2018 League of Legends World Championship. However, recent performances have made us doubt that prediction.
Underdogs… or not
Previously, we saw Cloud9 as the underdogs with little chance of winning. But our perspective has changed. We now believe that C9 might have what it takes to win.
The Transformation of Cloud9
Cloud9’s consistent winning streak forced us to reconsider our evaluation. They have proven that they are capable of competing at the highest level. Coach Bok “Reapered” Han-gyu’s decisions have worked out well, creating a flexible and talented roster.
Performance in the Quarterfinals
Cloud9’s performance against Afreeca Freecs in the quarterfinals was truly eye-opening. They looked more consistent and in control compared to both G2 Esports and Fnatic. This is why we believe Cloud9 should be considered the favorites in the upcoming match.
Who needs macro strategy?
Fnatic was the only team that seemed to understand their strengths and weaknesses. However, their performance in the group stage showed that they struggled with macro strategy. On the other hand, Cloud9 and Team Vitality embraced a more aggressive playstyle, focusing on fights rather than macro gameplay. This strategy has worked for Cloud9, as they have shown excellent mechanical skills and a knack for winning team fights.
Believing in Cloud9
Cloud9’s success in the quarterfinals and their overall improvement throughout the tournament gives us reason to believe in them. They are no longer the underdogs, but a team that deserves recognition. North American fans can have faith in Cloud9 as the region’s last hope in the Worlds finals.
In conclusion, Cloud9 has what it takes to win against Fnatic in the semifinals. Their strong performances, strategic decisions, and ability to adapt to their opponents make them a formidable opponent. The concept of an NA team in the Worlds finals is no longer outlandish.
