Welcome back to Sliding Doors, where each week we run through the OPL teams with sometimes spicy, sometimes nice if/then takes, and every now and then an additional bonus one around a special topic.
You might be familiar with this concept if you’re an AFL fan, which is where we got the idea. So without further ado, here are your sliding doors for the OPL Split 2, Week 1!
Avant manage to finish fifth yet again this split,
their curse might actually be a blessing.
There was one thing last split deserved that we didn’t get,
it was an El Clasico final. The Chiefs will be hoping to get redemption in Split 2 after their heartbreaking early exit in Split 1.
Coaching is as important as people say it is in League,
it will be interesting to track the Dire Wolves performance this split with Shernfire at the helm.
You’re looking to board the gravy train,
hopefully you have Praelus as your conductor and Puma joining you in first class. Kweku will be onboard with you on the train but I’m not sure if it will leave your experience riding through the OPL circuit any more comfortable.
Legacy needed any motivation for the split,
actually playing overseas is it. Winning the OPL was great, but not going to MSI would leave a sour taste.
Anyone knows anything about GDX,
can someone slide into my DMs?
OPL fans want to believe that Order can get the job done this split,
we’ll need to start seeing some scalps against the top 3 teams. They can’t just be flat track bullies anymore.
You’re hoping that Pabu will be the saving grace for Pentanet,
you might be right. However, one has to remember that as a top laner he’s never finished above fifth.
That’s all we have for this week. Check back every Friday for more sliding doors!
