Cloud9’s bot and mid laners are a bit too expensive for Captain because their high price may skew the entire balance of your roster. Bang might be a better fit for Captain because he isn’t that expensive and Evil Geniuses should win against Immortals, particularly after receiving a thrashing on Saturday against FlyQuest. Bang was 0/3/3 on Saturday.
Others to consider: Zven ($12,600)
FlyQuest was too hot even for Evil Geniuses on Saturday. The team has flown under the radar with some bigger, more established esports franchises like Evil Geniuses, Liquid and Cloud9 grabbing the spotlight. As a top laner, Solo did more than his part to put away EG without hassle with a combined KDA of 4/2/11 and a creep score of 282, second highest on FlyQuest.
Others to consider: Broken Blade ($6,600)
Svenskeren led Evil Geniuses in kills on Saturday as he had five of EG’s seven total kills. He had struggled prior to that game in this split but leading the offensive production will hold him in good stead when a team lacking confidence comes calling. He should be too strong in the jungle, from an itemization and flanking perspective.
Others to consider: Spica ($7,000)
Bjergsen did it again. With TSM engaging Golden Guardians in the top lane, Bjergsen quietly made his way to destroy the nexus turrets before his opponents could do much. His damage output, in terms of turret destruction or even straight kills, has been fantastic. He has been averaging 27 DKFP per game, second highest on this slate.
Others to consider: Nisqy ($8,200)
Here is where you capitalize. You are free to draft the bot laner of your choice with some inexpensive picks in the previous categories. Zven has a KDA of 16.5 because he has just 0.57 deaths per game. Along with that, he has a kill participation rate of close to 10. Stunning numbers by any standards.
Others to consider: Doublelift ($8,000)
Prior to this week’s games, IgNar was averaging 10 assists per game, which is good by itself. IgNar had 17 assists on Saturday against EG, further improving that metric. He even had two kills in that game. He has been a solid complementary player for his bot laner as well.
You would notice that on account of some very cheap choices for top laner and jungler, you have a lot more to spend for positions like team. Cloud9 can be a differentiating factor for your roster. Cloud9 is still unbeaten after seven maps in this summer season. That is unlikely to change after the fourth week.
