Head to Head


JD Gaming and FunPlus Phoenix have yet to meet this season.

JD Gaming Form


JD Gaming finished LPL 2024 Summer Placements as the top LoL esports team in Group A, with wins against FunPlus Phoenix, EDward Gaming, and ThunderTalk Gaming. They were a bit lucky to face FunPlus Phoenix who are in bad shape, and EDG and ThunderTalk Gaming should've never posed any serious threat to them.

However, JD Gaming failed to convert their strong form in the LPL 2024 Summer regular season and lost their opening match against Weibo Gaming (0-2). Considering how weak Weibo Gaming looked in the LPL 2024 Summer, this loss is alarming. But it also proves that if WBG have managed to improve, so can FunPlus Phoenix. 

JD Gaming Squad & Team News


No changes for JD Gaming.

  • Li "Flandre" Xuan-Jun – top lane
  • Seo "Kanavi" Jin-hyeok – jungle
  • Zeng "Yagao" Qi – mid lane
  • Park "Ruler" Jae-hyuk – ADC
  • Lou "MISSING" Yun-Feng -support

FunPlus Phoenix Form


FunPlus Phoenix are a very strong team who aren't getting a lot of respect. They've not looked great in LPL 2024 Summer Placements, nor did FPX manage to defeat Anyone's Legend in the LPL 2024 Summer opener, which plays a part in their current status as a struggling team.

However, we know what FunPlus Phoenix are capable of, so they're not a team to underestimate, especially as such massive underdogs.

This begs the question of whether FunPlus Phoenix are rightly priced as 4.80 underdogs with Stake or whether the price is a bit overexaggerated. 

FunPlus Phoenix Squad & Team News


No roster 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

JD Gaming and FunPlus Gaming produced very exciting games last split, but considering FPX's form, this does seem like it'll be more one-sided. That said, FunPlus Phoenix are about just as good as JD Gaming in the early game and while their late game is not optimal, doing well early could be everything FunPlus Phoenix need.

Weibo Gaming defeated JD Gaming mostly thanks to their solid early-game performance, which gives FunPlus Phoenix a blueprint on how to approach this game. Whether they'll manage to convert early leads into anything meaningful is debatable, but FPX have enough quality players to do well.
