We're now in week seven of this summer's North American season three "League of Legends" Championship Series tournament. Six matches are slated to be held today, with the first beginning at 4 p.m. EDT between heavy underdogs Velocity eSports (4-13) against dominant favorites Cloud 9 HyperX (15-2). In head-to-head matches, Cloud 9 HyperX is 2-0 against Velocity eSports.
However, that doesn't tell the whole story. Statistics indicate that throughout the summer Cloud 9 HyperX has averaged more gold than Velocity eSports until recently. Cloud 9 HyperX has also averaged more gold per minute and, also until recently, a higher kill-death average, or KDA. Perhaps Velocity eSports can continue its better play. It will need to to have a chance against Cloud 9 HyperX today.
The rest of the matches that will be held today include:
Team Dignitias (8-9) vs. TSM Snapdragon (8-9)
Team Coast (7-10) vs. Vulcan TechBargains (11-6)
Counter Logic Gaming (8-9) vs. Curse (7-10)
TSM Snapdragon (8-9) vs. Vulcan TechBargains (11-6)
Cloud 9 HyperX (15-2) vs. Team Coast (7-10)
