KT Rolster Are Expected To Win
KT Rolster were incredible throughout the LCK 2023 Summer regular season, which they won with a 17-1 record and an 85% map win rate. However, despite their strong form, KT Rolster came out short in the playoffs.
In the first round of the playoffs, KT Rolster suffered an upset loss against T1 (2-3), then bounced back with a 3-0 sweep of Hanwha Life Esports but had to again admit defeat to their rivals, T1, who eliminated them from the playoffs in the lower bracket finals (3-2).
It was a highly disappointing performance for KT ROlster, who were expected to make the LCK 2023 Summer Playoffs finals. But we can look at it from another angle. KT Rolster’s only three defeats of the summer split came against Gen.G (regular season) and their arch-rivals, T1 (twice in the playoffs)
Outside of that, KT Rolster have not struggled to beat their opponents, regardless of who they faced. And they definitely didn’t struggle to sweep Hanwha Life Esports in the playoffs.
Hanwha Life With A Mountain To Climb
Hanwha Life Esports ended the LCK 2023 Summer regular season in third place, with a 12-6 record, which is a decent outcome for their standards. However, HLE didn’t look nearly as good as other top contenders.
HLE have proven to be a very one-dimensional team, which explains why they looked good against other weaker teams but found no success when matched with any of the league’s top squads. And it was especially noticeable in HLE’s 0-3 loss against KT Rolster in the LCK 2023 Summer Playoffs.
Hanwha Life Esports are still a decent team, with good players and the ability to play well against any team. But they fall apart as soon as they meet with a team that fields good players and can adapt to counter HLE’s playstyle.
LCK Regional Finals Prediction
KT Rolster crushed Hanwha Life Esports the last time they met, and according to the LoL betting odds, they should do it again. And as much as we can have faith in HLE to turn their luck around and deliver against an objectively better opponent, they’ve yet to show anything that would suggest HLE can actually do it.
Throughout the regular season, Hanwha Life Esports struggled badly against the top-four teams, and they have not shown any improvement in the department that kept them on the back foot against stronger opponents.
KT Rolster have failed to deliver in the playoffs, but this is objectively one of the top three teams in the league. But more importantly, KT Rolster have only really struggled against Gen.G and T1, and has never shown any cracks when faced with weaker teams. Don’t expect any shocking results.
