EU LCS Caster Andy "Vedius" Day has released a Rift Rivals edition of his series "Picks To Watch." He looks at the two regions and what champions they might pick during the event. 

For North America, Vedius chooses Olaf and Nidalee. If anyone is going to pull out the Olaf, it will be Cloud9's jungler Juan "Contractz" Garcia. Although his win/lose record for Olaf is 2-3, he still remains a major threat because of his ability to chase down enemies and set up kills for his team.


 As for Nidalee, it will be the rookie of Phoenix1 Mike "MikeYeung" Yeung who locks in the Huntress. However, if EU is smart and they've watched P1's last series against Immortals, they'll ban Nidalee.

The picks for Europe are Tristana and Warwick. Tristana, I'm not too sure about this one. Although he mentions Fnatic's AD carry Martin "Rekkles" Larsson and his ability to preform on the Champion. NA AD carries like C9's Zachary "Sneaky" Scuderi and Team SoloMid's Yiliang "Doublelift" Peng have also played Tristana with some success. 


Warwick, however, is a champion to watch out for when Unicorns of Love are on the Rift. UOL jungler Andrei "Xerxe" Dragomir has shown some love for this champion and has a 4-1 win/lose record. This wolf doesn't see much play in NA so most teams won't have the experience playing against this jungler. 

Rift Rivals will be the clown fiesta of all clown fiestas so be sure to tune in and check out the action.
