Let’s get right down to business. Whether you are playing to win the F2P Cup, 1v1 Challenge, or taking on a Squad Battle, we all are after the W. We can even make some money on the way. So let’s take a look and see which players can be the biggest value, and who is most deserving of your Captain Crown.
* Signifies a game that they will only play if they win their first game
Bwipo - Fnatic $260,000 (vs S04 & RGE*)
Bwipo is probably to most volatile non-Support in the LEC. Actually, yes, he definitely is. The thing about volatility though is that there are massive highs and massive lows. Well, in a week where he is expected to play 2 full BO5 series, that volatility could massively work in your favor.
Jankos - G2 Esports $310,000 (vs MAD)
There Will Be Blood. The name of a well known movie, and also to slogan to any G2 vs MAD matchup. This series will be highly competitive and very bloody, so I am choosing the player on the winning side that should be involved in more Kills than anybody else.
Abbedagge - FC Schalke 04 $250,000 (vs FNC & RGE*)
Everybody is very quick to write off S04 this week, but don’t you think that they performed better against G2 last week than FNC would’ve? If S04 does pull off the upset, it would be because we see the annual appearance of Fakerdagge.
Upset - Fnatic $310,000 (vs S04 & RGE*)
In any normal week, Upset is a threat to lead every single player in scoring. However, this isn’t a normal week. If FNC wins, he will be the only Bot Laner to get 2 series’ this week. So if FNC wins, Upset WILL lead all players in scoring.
Trymbi - Rogue $110,000 (vs Winner of FNC/S04)
We all want Mikyx, duh. But we can’t all afford him. Trymbi is only slightly ahead of the pack in price, but has a much higher chance to win his series than any people below him. With wins being so important for Supports, pay a little more for the safety.
MAD Lions $230,000 (vs G2)
What do you put more stock into: G2 barely being able to beat S04 or MAD 3-1’ing RGE? MAD has beaten G2 in a B05 before and are confident they can do it again. It would be an upset, but one that yields massive profit for you.
Best Overall Captain: G2 Jankos: Hecarim & Lillia
Like I said, I want the player that will be on the winning side of the (by far) bloodiest matchup of the weekend. G2 picked Lillia & Hecarim for Jankos in the first 4 games of their last series, and they were given no reason to try something different.
Risky Captain: FNC Selfmade: Hecarim & Volibear
Risk it for the Biscuit. We are all very aware of what peak performance playoff Selfmade can look like. Well if that comes when he gets 1 more series than every other team AND is sticking to the same Champions (played Hecarim or Volibear in all 4 games so far), well then you would be a fool not to put a crown on his head.
