  • EDward Gaming are on a two-game winning streak

Head to Head

EDward Gaming Form


EDward Gaming were one of the worst LoL esports teams of the LPL 2024 Spring, but with the roster changes, they now look much better. So far in LPL 2024 Summer Placements, EDward Gaming have already picked up two wins, which puts them in an excellent position to secure a top-two finish.

Both of their wins came last week, when EDward Gaming swept FunPlus Phoenix and ThunderTalk Gaming. Three games are not enough to draw conclusions, but it's clear that EDward Gaming look much better than last split – now the question is how much better EDG really are.

For this match, we should take into consideration how their recent meeting with FunPlus Phoenix went. It was a competitive game throughout and it could've ended either way, but there are also some reasons to believe FunPlus Phoenix underperformed, which makes EDG's victory less convincing.

EDward Gaming with no new roster changes.

  • Mak "Solokill" Fu Keung – top lane
  • Zhao "JieJie" Li-Jie - jungler
  • Yuan "Cryin" Cheng-Wei – mid lane
  • Hu "Leave" Hong-Chao – ADC
  • Zhang "Wink" Rui – support

FunPlus Phoenix Form


FunPlus Phoenix were an excellent team in the LPL 2024 Spring when they posted much better performances than what their end record would suggest. This split, FPX have looked a bit off.
They're 1-2 after two weeks of LPL 2024 Summer Placements, with losses to JD Gaming (0-2) and EDward Gaming (0-2). Their only victory came against ThunderTalk Gaming, yet even that series went to three maps.

There's no clear reason why FPX are performing so poorly, but it's likely that the whole Ping "Xiaolaohu" Xiao-Hu situation has something to do with it. 

Like it's the case with EDward Gaming, it's way too early to make any conclusions. But comparing FunPlus Phoenix and EDward Gaming and what they've shown so far, one team is trending downwards while the other is trending up.

FunPlus Phoenix Squad & Team News


No changes for FunPlus Phoenix.

  • Ping "Xiaolaohu" Xiao-Hu – top lane
  • Cai "milkyway" Zi-Jun – jungle
  • Yang "Care" Jie – mid lane
  • Seo "Deokdam" Dae-gil – ADC
  • Kim "Life" Jeong-min – support

Verdict

EDward Gaming have shown immense improvement this stage, and even though it's not fair to make conclusions so early, they legitimately look like a good team - perhaps even one of the top six LPL LoL teams.

FunPlus Phoenix, on the other side, haven't shown much so far, which might have to do with the internal turmoil FPX have been going through. This could explain things, but it could also be a terrible excuse to believe FPX are stronger than what they've shown.

If you believe FunPlus Phoenix will suddenly reach the same heights they showed last split, they're a solid bet at the offered price. But I would put more emphasis on what the teams have shown over the last two weeks, where EDward Gaming come out ahead.
