Is Infinity The LLA’s Most Overhyped Team?
There has been a lot of questioning surrounding Infinity and all the hype they’ve amassed during the off-season. The main reasoning behind this is that, even though they have incredibly strong individual talent, the team might not be that strong as a unit.
I strongly disagree with this. There is no reason to believe that a team like Infinity is not capable of building up enough synergy during the split. They don’t solely rely on individual talent, as Solidsnake and Ackerman know perfectly how to play around their carries.
Another important thing to keep in mind is that last year, Dye and Falco did a great job with a roster that was clearly lacking firepower. Sure, the roster is a completely different one now, but that should play in their favor considering how good players like Keine and 5Kid are.
My biggest concern for Infinity would be how they manage their resources. First of all, just like any other team out there, they might have issues adapting to the new season. On top of that, they have so many strong carries that it might be overwhelming at first.
Despite that, I still think that Infinity is easily a top-3 team in the 2023 opening season, and unless something completely unexpected goes wrong, they should be able to start rolling right from the get-go.
Team Aze Made a Last-Minute Change In The Jungle
Dimitry won’t be playing for Team Aze, and in his place, Froststrike will be the starting jungler for Team Aze in the 2023 opening season. This is clearly an indicator that they’ve been struggling in scrims, and it’s impossible to know the exact reason or if it’s Dimitry’s fault at all.
Let’s be real, Dimitry has been a one-dimensional jungler throughout his whole career. While he was one of the best carry junglers in LATAM last year, it might be time for a change.
Parang and Focus are the two new additions for Aze, and that is probably why they are trying things out with a different jungler. Maybe things just didn’t feel right with Dimitry, and now, Froststrike will, once again, have the opportunity to prove himself on the big stage.
It’s hard to make sense of Aze’s roster, considering that their strongest carry is Parang in the top lane. If we’ve learned anything from the past few years, it is that the top lane is not a good lane to play around if you are playing in the LLA. Unless Parang completely dominates the top lane, as he did with All Knights in 2019, I don’t see this roster going far.

Infinity vs Team Aze Picks & Prediction
I think Infinity is the clear favorite in this matchup, especially since the LLA regular season is a Bo3 format instead of a Bo1 format. Team Aze is much weaker now, and it’s really concerning that they are still moving pieces only a few days away from the start of the split.
Infinity has so much firepower and too many threats around the map that I don’t see Team Aze capable of surviving through the mid-game. Not only do they have great laners in Zerito and Keine, but they also have 5Kid who is a late-game insurance and completely dominates team fights.
While Parang is definitely a very talented top laner, I don’t see him carrying the rest of Team Aze, especially in the current meta.
