ROYAL NEVER GIVE UP vs TEAM WE LPL SUMMER BETTING PREVIEW

Royal Never Give Up and Team WE will meet for the first time in over three months this Tuesday during the fifth week of the League of Legends Pro League (LPL) 2020 Summer Split.

Royal Never Give Up produced a mixed bag of results throughout the opening four weeks. After picking up two commanding wins against Oh My God (2-0) and ViCi Gaming (2-0), they stumbled against LNG Esports (0-2) and then bounced back by defeating reigning LPL champions JD Gaming. In Week 4, RNG downed eStar Gaming (2-1) on Monday but then lost to Victory Five (0-2) on Thursday.

Although Royal Never Give Up officially parted ways with their star ADC, Jian “Uzi” Zi-Hao, at the end of May, that should not make a huge difference considering Lu “Betty” Yu-Hung filled the role throughout the last split. Betty has made a strong start to the LPL Summer, but he needs some help from his teammates.

RNG’s inconsistency is likely due to a lack of roster stability. Having a nine-man squad can often be an advantage, but that does not appear to be the case here. RNG have already used seven members of their active roster and it seems like they’re still working to find the right combinations. That affects their synergy, especially in the upper part of the map, where RNG field two new top laners.

Team WE also enter this bout with a 4-2 record from the opening four weeks of LPL Summer 2020. They lost to Suning (1-2) and FunPlus Phoenix (1-2) but managed to take down Invictus Gaming (2-0), EDward Gaming (2-1), ViCi Gaming (2-0) and most recently Rogue Warriors (2-0).

Although they hold the same numerical record at RNG, Team WE’s overall performances have looked far more stable. The loss to Suning does not look good on paper, but Kung “Domo” Yu-Te’s charges deserve some slack since they defeated Invictus Gaming and put up a solid fight against the reigning League of Legends world champions, FPX.

All five members of the Team WE roster have made a solid start to the split. While ADC Zhao “Jiumeng” Jia-Hao is doing a lot of the work (33.6% damage share), mid laner Jiang “Teacherma” Chen (22.6%), jungler Jiang “beishang” Zhi-Peng (17.4%) and top laner Park “Morgan” Gi-tae (17.2%) are all putting in their fair share.

We expected to see a bit more from beishang in the opening weeks, but he proved his worth with a 15.0 KDA in Team WE’s clash with Rogue Warriors. He outperformed both Teacherma (6.4 KDA) and Jiumeng (4.7 KDA) and if he can continue playing at this level, we find it hard to believe Li “XLB” Xiao-Long will manage to keep pace with his compatriot in the jungle.

ROYAL NEVER GIVE UP vs TEAM WE LPL SUMMER BETTING PREDICTIONS

Esports bookmakers have Royal Never Give Up priced as massive favourites for this match, which does not seem right. Although there are arguments to be made that RNG have higher-quality players, their performances this split do not reflect that.

While it is true that Royal Never Give Up have not lost to Team WE since the LPL 2017 Spring finals, we cannot ignore how much better WE have looked this split. While we won’t expect them to roll over RNG and win with a clean sweep, a 2-1 win should be within reach for the underdogs.

Team WE to win
