Can LOUD reach the 2022 CBLOL finals?

The playoffs of the CBLOL 2022 Split 2 have been underway for two weeks, and it has turned up some truly unexpected results. The top two teams of the season have been demoted to the lower seed, and the semi-finals were played by Pain Gaming and LOUD. In a tight series, PaiN came up ahead 3-2 in Silver Scrapes, and booked a spot in the final. It’s fully expected that both teams get to meet for round 2 in the Finals.

Since LOUD’s entry into the CBLOL last year, they’ve shown plenty of promise but so far, it hasn’t translated into trophies. They’ve shown great spirit, but haven’t managed to seed any higher than fourth. With the way they’ve been playing, it’s clear that they plan on rectifying that. THey finished fourth at the conclusion of the round robin, with 12 wins and unbeaten

Great teams take time to build, and LOUD will certainly get there. Their victory against reigning champions RED Canids in the upper bracket playoffs was vindication of their arrival among the top guns. The score line was a replica of the other upper bracket fixture between Pain gaming and Furia. RED surged ahead in the first game with 26 kills, and though Robo and Brance managed seven kills between them, LOUD ended the game with just eight.

But LOUD weren’t about to crumble under the pressure of being one game down. They trounced RED in the next match, the superb pair of Robo and Brance snagging 18 kills between them as their opponents folded in under 27 minutes. LOUD captured nine towers and four dragons, in contrast RED could manage only one and zero of each respectively. 

RED fought back in the next game, but LOUD secured an advantage with a higher number of kills, 17, and more than ten towers. LOUD had marched well ahead with a 2-1 lead, and RED needed to win the equalizer to stay alive. But now it was Croc and tinowns’ turn to get in on the action, and their combined tally of 14 kills was the same as RED’s tally in the entire game.

We already short recapped their series versus PaiN above. Going into a potential rematch, they definitely need to come up with some new strats and drop the Sejuani pick.

PNG are hungry and opportunistic, as champions try to be, and will be eager to clear LOUD from their path to their fourth CBLOL title, and a coveted place in the Worlds 2022 play-ins. Though this contest promises to be tight, some experts give PNG the edge in a potential final. LOUD on the other hand, are the exciting up-and-comers of the CBLOL. They are at a slight disadvantage, but writing them off would be foolish.
