Featured Match: I May vs Snake Esports

We’re kicking off Week Two of the China LPL with an opening match between I May and Snake Esports. This will hardly be the first time these two have faced off under pressure, but unfortunately, the track record isn’t looking good for Snake.

I May trounced them in August last year at the LPL Summer Playoffs and then again in November at the Demacia Cup, before unfortunately going down to EDward Esports—the very same brand that used to own I May as a challenger team.

We think I May are the favorites to take this one home, but Snake has been doing a lot better this year than many predicted. They’ve already taken an early match against Invictus and are right behind I May in the rankings, so 2017 might just be the year that Flandre, SofM and the rest turn the tables on I May. Stay tuned and make sure to place your bets!
