LGD Gaming vs Invictus Gaming will clash on Tuesday, May 30, in the second round of Week 1 at League of Legends Pro League (LPL) 2023 Summer. It'll mark their first meeting since LPL 2023 Spring when Invictus Gaming won 2-0.

Esports bookmakers have LGD Gaming priced as 2.90 underdogs for their clash with Invictus Gaming, who enter their first match of LPL 2023 Summer as 1.38 favourites. The offered odds don't make much sense as there is not much data on the teams, nor do we know how they'll do with the new rosters. Still, on paper, Invictus Gaming indeed look very strong.

  • LGD Gaming should do much better this split
  • Invictus Gaming have made several roster changes and look strong
  • Anything can happen

Head to Head


Invictus Gaming and LGD Gaming last met in LPL 2023 Spring, when Invictus Gaming won 2-0. However, the teams have since made several roster changes, so that result doesn't matter too much.

LGD Gaming Form


LGD Gaming finished LPL 2023 Spring in 14th place, with a 5-11 series record and a 13-25 map differential. With an abysmal 31% game-win rate, LGD Gaming came three wins short of qualifying for the playoffs, which doesn't look good, but they've improved towards the end of the year.

Now, heading into the new season, LGD Gaming have made several roster changes, which look quite promising on paper. They brought in a new top laner Chen "fearness" Guo-Ji and ADC Lee "Envyy" Myeong-joon, as well as a new mid laner Zheng "xqw" Xia-Jian from the academy team.

The coaching staff has remained untouched, and the core of the team is still here. It's tough to say how LGD Gaming will do with the new players. But considering how LGD Gaming finished last term and that they haven't really downgraded in any of the positions, things are looking good.

What's even better from a betting perspective is that LGD Gaming continue to be underrated, which works perfectly in our favour. Do they look

As confirmed, Fearness and Envyy will start for LGD Gaming on Tuesday, while xqw will start the season on the sidelines.

  • Chen "fearness" Guo-Ji – top lane
  • Zeng "Meteor" Guo-Hao – jungle
  • Zhang "haichao" Hai-Chao – mid lane
  • Lee "Envyy" Myeong-joon – ADC
  • Xie "Jinjiao" Jin-Shan – support

Invictus Gaming Form


Invictus Gaming finished last split in 11th place, with a 7-9 series record and a 50% map win rate (18-18). They barely missed out on a top-10 finish, landing one win behind Team WE, which wasn't a terrible outcome for them; however, it's not like I can praise them too much for what IG have shown.

Hoping to find more success, Invictus Gaming have signed a new mid laner Yuan "Cryin" Cheng-Wei, jungler Guo "Tianzhen" Qi-Fan and ADC Luo "xiaoyueji" Shi-Hao, but it remains to be seen how much playtime the new signings – besides Tianzhen will get.

Overall, IG have made a couple of upgrades, so they should do better than last split – but are they really as strong as the latest betting odds suggest?

Invictus Gaming Squad & Team News


Invictus Gaming have confirmed the lineup for Tuesday's match, and it'll include two new signings.

  • Chau "YSKM" Shu Tak – top lane
  • Guo "Tianzhen" Qi-Fan – jungle
  • Yuan "Cryin" Cheng-Wei – mid lane
  • An "Ahn" Shan-Ye – ADC
  • Zhang "Wink" Rui – support

Verdict

Opening games of a new split are always tough to predict, especially when teams make roster changes and bring in unproven players. Luckily, for most of the new signings of Invictus Gaming and LGD Gaming, we know what they bring to the table.

This looks like Invictus Gaming's game to lose, but I wouldn't price them as 1.38 favourites. Although IG look better than last season, LGD Gaming aren't getting as much respect as they deserve. They've improved their top side, and with Envyy as their new ADC, LGD's bottom side should be much more stable, which essentially fixes their main weakness.

I don’t believe LGD Gaming have a realistic chance to compete for the LPL title, but they’re underrated and are worth a bet to beat IG.
