Ryujehong mentioned that Janus might be back for this match. Personally I think it's dumb that they decided to split these but it might end up giving an advantage to LWB if WhoRU isn't back from his disciplinary suspension.

I think the winner will be determined by who has the full roster.

LH without Janus seems much stronger than LWB without WhoRU. I think even if LWB get WhoRU back, it will still be a close match even if LH aren't at full strength

bahaha you know what I meant!

Ryujehong did mention, in an interview, that he thought LWB would have Janus back in time for this match. At this point I don't think LH will have WhoRU back in the lineup in time.

Why is this match played at the later time, but on the next match day?

No clue, they decided to split the matches for some reason.

Perhaps delaying so that janus and WhoRU can be back with their teams? One can only hope!

That would make sense.

I did read up on collapsed lung surgery and it usually takes 1-2 weeks to recover and up to a month of bed rest to reduce the chances or recurrence.

If Janus does play, which it honestly sounds like he shouldn't, I'm not sure how effective he'll be. We might not get to see these two Korean giants at their full strength, but hopefully it'll still be a highly competitive game!

Edit: Funny thing too is that they kept the late time slot for this game and the early time slot for nV vs X6, unless that's changed, even though there's only one game each day.

It's a good sign - hopefully WhereRU can be back too, and it can be the match up we've all been waiting for

I think it's possible that Janus might play but considering the 2-4 weeks of suggested bed rest after this type of operation, to prevent relapse, I'm not sure he will. Or at least I'm not sure if they want to take the risk. He probably wouldn't be in top shape.

If LW blue doesn't have Janus, and LH doesn't have whoru: 3-2 for LH
IF LW blue has Janus but LH doesn't have whoru: 3-2 LW Blue
If Lunatic Hai has whoru : 3-1 (if they have Janus) or 3-0 if they don't

It's kind of funny a few months ago when WhoRU joined the team, nobody in the west knew his name. Now he is arguably LH's most impactful player. Hope he comes back soon, LH just isn't the same with the WhoRU/Miro combo, so fun to watch.

Im not sure if Janus playing is a good or bad thing since i don't think he fully recovered yet so he won't be playing to his full potential i don't think but gl to them

LW lost their own game, having 3 DPS make the tanks die too fast

I still don't think that AFB has had a proper challenge this tournament even though they do look really strong. But I do agree that they have the advantage if WhoRU is still suspended. Otherwise I think it should be a solid match.

The semi finals will be quite fun to watch imo.

Wow, LH. They're fucking amazing. Who'd have known they'd go 3-0 against SBB, Pine, and Nanohana? All without WhoRU. Definitely expecting a LH vs. KDP final.

Unfortunately the struggle with Janus' health problems has severely affected the teamplay of LW Blue. Also SBB and Flower seemed to have a really bad day which all in all made a win against LH impossible.

AFB vs LH gonna be HYPE tho.
