Featured Match: SK Telecom T1 vs Flash Wolves

We’re into the semifinals of the 2017 Mid-Season Invitational, and there’s some incredible matches ready for us over the next two days.

Our first game off the ranks is SK Telecom T1, the leading LoL team anywhere in the world right now, fending off an impressive challenge from the resurgent Flash Wolves who went 14-0 in the LMS Spring Split.

Nobody doubted that SKT would top the group stage, but Flash Wolves managed to take one of only two series off the reigning champions, causing many to wonder if this team has what it takes to cause a major upset. They’ve defeated some very tough opponents so far — including AHQ and J-Team — and dropped only two maps in the entire Spring Split and playoffs.

SKT remain the favourites going into this match, with all-star players like Faker, Wolf and Peanut making the prospect of taking them down daunting, to say the least.

The Flash Wolves may be in a strong position, but do they have what it takes to go the distance in a grueling best-of-five against the best team in the world? Tune in and make sure to place your bets!
