Kindless might be the Final Piece of the Estral Puzzle
Don’t get me wrong, Lyg is not a bad player or anything like that, but he was the only one that felt a bit out of place in this roster. What Estral was lacking was more stability during the laning phase, and while Lyg was capable of getting huge leads in the early game, he was often being targeted by his opponents.
Now that Kindless is on the field, Estral doesn’t really have an exploitable spot per se. Sure, they can’t fully rely on either Acce or Kindless stomping on their opponents, but they definitely don’t need any kind of resources.
Take a look at Kindless numbers throughout his playoffs games with Estral: Amongst ADCs, he holds the lowest number of deaths per game (1.3), and the highest number of assists per game (9). Now the most interesting fact about Kindless: He is simultaneously the ADC that deals the lowest dmg% of his team (20.3%), yet, he is the ADC that deals the highest amount of damage per minute (597).
This is huge for Estral. Their ADC is dealing huge amounts of damage, yet he is not the primary damage dealer within the team. Though that’s somewhat expected when you have Bugi and Mireu in your team. In the end, it’s safe to say that Kindless is the perfect fit for Estral and things are only getting better for them as he gets used to the team.
Bugi and Mireu keep Rolling Over the Competition
I’ll never get tired of seeing this amazing mid jungle duo outperform their counterparts in every single one of their matches. Throughout 3 playoff games in their series against Aze, Bugi and Mireu authored a 12.5 and 5.2 KDA respectively. Yes, Bugi is definitely the one putting up an amazing show, but Mir isn’t that far behind and he is always the one helping out Bugi during the earlier stages of the game.
While Bugi is the most consistent player in the game and he is always getting extremely fed through ganks, it’s undeniable that Estral’s laners are a huge part of the team’s success. In the regular season, Estral was mostly playing around Bugi, but now, it seems that this team might be feeling really comfortable funneling resources towards any lane.
Interesting Duel in the Top Lane
I know, there are so many things to look out for in this match, but the top lane is definitely one of the most exciting aspects of this matchup. Who would’ve thought that a clash between Acce and ADD (probably the two most selfless top laners in the League of legends bets) would be interesting. But if we take a look at how they performed in their previous series then it’s very clear that this lane will have a great impact on the final outcome.
Let’s get it out of the way, Sejuani is going to be either picked or banned in every single one of the games. Acce was the first top laner that brought this pick to the LLA, and he already found a lot of success with it (4-1). Also, just in the playoffs, Sejuani has won 5 out of 5 games. Both of these players already demonstrated that they are very comfortable playing this champion.
I think that ADD might have the upper hand in this matchup, just because his champion pool is a bit deeper. Acce has played a tank champion (Sejuani, Ornn, Sion) in 12 out of 17 games, which says a lot about his versatility. Sure, we’ve seen him play things like Gwen and Jayce, but that was a long time ago and we can be sure that Estral won’t be drafting towards the top lane.

Estral vs Isurus Predictions
The LLA playoffs are turning out to be very exciting, especially if you are a League of Legends betting fan because of all the featured heated rivalries. Estral and Isurus are the absolute best two teams in the league right now, and we’ll get to see them fight it out in the winners semifinals. I wouldn’t be surprised if this ends up being a preview of the grand finals, which are occurring in a couple of weeks.
Now, Isurus definitely have some valuable tools available, specifically Seiya. The king of the north performed great in the most important moments against Rainbow7, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he ends up being a clutch factor this time too. But other than that, I don’t see how the Argentinian shark is going to beat Estral 3 games. While it’s very possible that Isurus steals 1 game away, they aren’t going any further than that.
In our LLA Playoffs and lol bets, we’ve correctly predicted the outcome of every single match so far. Including a -1.5 Map Advantage for Estral at -115 against Team Aze last week.
