LCK Spring Split 2017 odds
The Korean League of League of Legends, or LCK , already has a date to begin: 17 January. The information was released by the Korean website Inven Global. The Spring Split 2017 promises to be one of the most intense, with several South Korean stars returning to the region and teams with strong climbs.
A favorite is, of course, the SK Telecom T1 , which established a worldwide three - time champion in 2016. The team also won first place in Split Spring 2016, but ranked third in Split Summer 2016.
For next season, the SKT will come with Seong "Huni" Hoon Heo (Top), Yoon "Peanut" Wang-ho (Hunter), Lee"Faker" Sang-hyeok (Half), Bae "Bang"Jun-sik (Shooter ) and Lee "Wolf" Jae-wan (support), and a bank of weight reserves.
The other favorite of the competition teams are KT Rolster and Samsung Galaxy . The first also announced strong new players for the competition, with Song "Smeb" Kyung-ho (Top), Go "Score" Dong-bin (Hunter), Heo "PAWN" Won-seok (Half), Kim "Deft" Hyuk -kyū (Shooter) and Cho"Mata" Se-hyeong (Support). Already the Samsung Galaxy renewed the contract of his squad which was runner-up in the World League of Legends in 2016.
In addition to the names already mentioned, the Spring Split 2017 LCK will also feature the teams Afreeca Freecs , Jin Air Green WIngs , MVP , Ever , Kongdoo Monster andLongzhu Gaming .
KT Rolster are a powerhouse team and based on gosugamers.net are ranked 12th in the world and 4th in Korea. Even before they became a powerhouse team in 2017, many professional and big-named Korean players had played with the squad. With Deft and Mata in the bot-lane they can easily crush many bot duos of other Korean Teams. While up in the top lane sits Korea’s best top laner Smeb who has achieved a fantastic KDA in his professional career. With this firm lineup on the rift, they will most likely level the strength of SKT T1 if not replace them as Korea’s and the World’s number one. This team will be the cause of huge excitement in the upcoming LCK which is becoming one of the most highly anticipated LoL seasons in history.
Jang "MaRin" Gyeong-Hwan in the top lane of the Afreeca Freecs. Also known as the Faker of the Top Lane, this top lane god returns to Korea to take on the multiple top laners who tried to take his crown as the LCK’s best and to challenge those who have returned to South Korea in 2017. MaRin won a Worlds championship while he was still part of SKT, however he decided to leave and travelled to the LPL to perhaps play in a new environment. With the miscommunications between him and his teammates, their team didn’t perform so well, thus he returned to South Korea.
