Hanwha Life Esports and KT Rolster will clash on Thursday, August 25, in the first round of the League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) 2023 Regional Finals. The winner will lock in a spot at LoL World Championship 2023 and join T1, Gen.G, and the winner of the Dplus KIA vs DRX series as one of four LCK representatives at the season-ending event.
These teams last met during the LCK 2023 Summer Playoffs, when KT Rolster won 3-0 with +9.4, +10.7, and +12.9k gold leads across the three maps. It was a very one-sided affair, and according to the top LoL esports betting sites, this one shouldn’t be much different.
KT Rolster are priced as -909.09 favourites to defeat Hanwha Life Esports for a reason. They won the LCK 2023 Summer regular season and have lost only three times this split – once against LCK champions Gen.G (1-2) and twice against T1 (2-3, 2-3).
Hanwha Life Esports have not been nearly as successful. They finished the regular season in third place, which sounds good, but it mostly had to do with Dplus KIA’s slow start and T1’s slump during Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok’s absence. More importantly, Hanwha Life Esports have a terrible record as underdogs (1-8).
This has to do with their one-dimensional playstyle. This works against lesser teams, but it leaves HLE vulnerable when faced with teams that can match them on an individual level.
But we don’t have to overanalyse the teams to figure out how this game will go. KT Rolster crushed Hanwha Life Esports 10 days ago, and due to their inflexibility, it’s hard to believe that HLE can forge a plan to upset KT.
