As with our LCS rundown, we ran all 90 upcoming LCK matches through our model to generate a view of how we expect the Summer 2021 season to go! DWG KIA is looking to be absolutely dominant (which is fitting, given their 2nd place MSI finish), with Gen.G and T1 rounding out the top of the pack:
| team name | wins | losses | win% | |---------------------|-------|--------|--------| | DWG KIA | 15.39 | 2.61 | 85.52% | | Gen.G | 14 | 4 | 77.79% | | T1 | 12.36 | 5.64 | 68.66% | | Hanwha Life Esports | 10.76 | 7.24 | 59.79% | | Nongshim Red Force | 8.18 | 9.82 | 45.42% | | Liiv SANDBOX | 7.42 | 10.58 | 41.2% | | Afreeca Freecs | 7.37 | 10.63 | 40.96% | | KT Rolster | 5.59 | 12.41 | 31.03% | | DRX | 5.56 | 12.44 | 30.91% | | Fredit BRION | 3.37 | 14.63 | 18.73% |
LCK looks like it'll be much more spread out in terms of team strength than LCS, though the middle of the group could still easily swing towards any of the teams there. Fredit BRION looks to place fairly solidly in last place, but hey, anything can happen and they've got 18 games to prove us wrong!
As before, this list does not necessarily comprise our final view of this season's outcome. As these matches get played out, we'll be updating our model and predictions to take advantage of the new information and make sure our predictions are as up-to-date as possible. And, of course, any number of extraneous circumstances can cause things to shift around.
