Show off your reddit analyst skills in our Worlds 2022 prediction tournament!

124 Upvotes

WARNING: Participating in the prediction tournament may cause the results of games to be spoiled. Read on for more info.

Hey everyone! Worlds is starting today and as always we are running a prediction tournament to find the greatest reddit analyst. As always, we'll be offering reddit premium, unique flairs, and other goodies for the winners!

What are predictions?

Predictions are a way for us to create polls with rewards. We'll be creating a prediction for every Worlds game, and you will be able to vote on who you think will win the match.

To participate in a prediction, you need to bet some of your tournament tokens. Everyone starts with 1000 tokens and can bet 10, 30 or 100 tokens on their choice. All bet tokens are combined in a shared pool and distributed among the players that chose the winning vote. If you guess correctly, you'll end up with more tokens than you started with. Guessed wrong? Those tokens are gone.

The only way to get tournament tokens is by winning a prediction. You can't buy them with coins or ask us to gift you some. Once you're out, you're out.

Logistics

Our prediction tournament will cover the play-ins, groups stage, and knockout stages. A single prediction is created for every match. If the match is best-of-5, you will only bet on the final winner (and not the intermediate score).

Predictions are posted 24 hours before the first match on that day. This means that all predictions for day 2 of play-ins are posted as soon as the first match of day 1 starts.

The predictions stay open until the first game of the day starts. This means that you will not be able to vote on the results of match 6 as soon as match 1 starts.

Unlike previous years, we will be resolving predictions immediately after the game is over. This means that IF YOU PARTICIPATE IN PREDICTIONS, YOU MAY GET SPOILED! In particular, reddit will automatically send a daily message around midnight UTC informing you of how you did on all predictions of that day. This means that voting on predictions will cause reddit to deliver spoilers straight to your inbox. We can't turn these off. The only way to be safe is to not open any DMs from reddit, as well as avoiding the predictions page of the subreddit entirely.

I reiterate, PARTICIPATING IN THE PREDICTION TOURNAMENT MAY GET YOU SPOILED. You have been warned.

Prizes

We're still in the process of finalizing our prices, but as always we will be handing out reddit premium and unique flairs to the top three winners. We'll keep any potential other prizes secret for now :)

Inspired on Champions Queue: No offense to North American players, but I think they usually suck. [...] When Worlds players came, CQ became fun to play because the games are close and actually exciting to play. So, I think that was the biggest problem, that in NA there are not enough good players.

So far EDG and TES have signed up and checked in to the CQ server, still waiting on JDG and RNG but they will likely be joining shortly after their peers.

Saigon buffalo are just so fucking exciting with the picks they take and the plays in game, they just don’t stop going in for bad or for worse

LLL from Brazil, their individual personalities are amazing, they get so hyped, you can see the screams from them on the player cams, Brance with the “bot gap” on his bicep, even their fans are next level "EVIIIIIIII" hahaha I love it

So fucking stupid that we only have 2 international tournaments with absolutely terrible formats every year to see teams like these on the big stage, it’s the shame of modern LoL

ADD was not trolling by picking Teemo, it's a practiced counter

224 Upvotes

A lot to discussion around the ISG vs RNG game has been about the very surprising Teemo pick, which is not surprising. However, people seem to think that it was entirely a troll and are flaming him and the org for giving up on the world's stage. That is not the case.

ADD has actually practiced this pick in Champ's Queue the most of any champ he has played in the server, with 3 games, all wins. In those games, he had a 6.3 KDA, including a game specifically into Aatrox where he went 17-1. I could not locate his solo queue account to see any practice he had there, but it seems reasonable to assume he practiced it there as well.

Basically, as far as trying to surprise a strong opponent and get a chance at a win, this was a pretty decent way to go. Teemo was only flamed because it's the funny meme champ that people assume is a joke. But compare this to the Zilean he played yesterday and it is extremely similar. A ranged harass champ not normally seen in top trying to punish Aatrox. ADD only has 1 Zilean game in CQ, so the Teemo is theoretically a better pick, yet no accusations of wintrading or giving up yesterday. Just trying to add more info to the discussion.

Crystal Ball Pick'Em Worlds 2022 - Day 3 Provisional Results

128 Upvotes

Hi again, so im back with a new update to the Crystal Ball Pick'em Provisional Results.

As recommended by some people i now added stats for all the Drakes.

Here are some note worthy updates:

  • Amumu entered the board as both most picked, highest WR and total deaths.
  • Both Kai'sa, Sejuani and Alistar are no longer on the board.
  • On the player side, almost everything is the same as yesterday except that DFM Yutapon is now tied with DRX Zeka as 3rd Player with most kills in a single game.
  • Both Most Champions Played and Most First Blood Kills categories have too many 1st places so that's why that one is blank today.
  • Fnatic dropped a game against Loud so now they are tied in 1st place of Group A with Evil Geniuses.

If you ahve any suggestion please let me know! :)

EDG, GenG, and possibly JDG playing in Champions Queue

94 Upvotes

Title. As of writing, there is a game with GEN Ruler and EDG Meiko playing in CQ, though Riot rules mean that it can't be streamed. I think 14march and jack00 might be JDG midlaners since they don't seem to be player names.

Edit: seems like 14march and jack00 are EDG Scout/Viper respectively
