It’s an LS diff! – and two other takeaways from the LCS superweek

ls

LCS playoffs are set, and the top four are exactly what you think they are. 

But that doesn’t mean they’re all good.

Maybe we should have kept LS…

If Cloud9 hadn’t already settled playoffs, this would have been such a disastrous superweek for them.

Alright, they bodied Dignitas, but who doesn’t? That was then followed by a pounding from 100 Thieves in which the draft was a massive issue, and a loss to FlyQuest where the exact same issue. 

That issue was the Malphite, which Jaxon himself pointed out a while ago would be a turbo pick into the Gnar/Jayce/Wukong meta of a few months back. Swap Wukong for Graves, and guess what, Malphite is even better – especially when people are blind picking Tryndamere.

LS was released after Summit was made to play Malphite (alright not exactly, but you get the point), but clearly he’d forgotten that champ existed and completely smashed the whole C9 comp.

Maybe you should have kept the guy who could have told you that. 

Ssumday must have been rock solid once he saw that draft.

The top four is just that

As much as I’d love to hype up FlyQuest or Golden Guardians, the fact that they both lost to EG when it mattered leaves us with very little hope.

100 Thieves, similarly, are underwhelming and one-dimensional at times, but are just a cut above the riff-raff. And when they turn it on, they can annihilate good teams.

EG’s questionable draft in the final tiebreaker didn’t even matter as they just diffed FlyQuest all over the rift, while Ssumday went from smashing Summit to losing to FakeGod in the late game. And they’re still better than GGS and FlyQuest.

Golden Guardians have more of a chance to beat a decent team, as Ablazeolive remains a very intriguing player and Pridestalkr can play a bit, but Licorice looks terrible and Lost is prone to big mistakes in the mid game.

I don’t hold much hope for them in BO5s, and Team Liquid look set to take top spot once more.

“Ssumday went from smashing Summit to losing to FakeGod in the late game. And they’re still better than GGS and FlyQuest.”

100T are an enigma.

Immortals… bro

We were robbed of a TSM 10th spot.

Robbed, I tell you!

Immortals have been absolutely horrendous since the midway point of the split, and they completely inted away a lead vs CLG and got smacked by Licorice’s Renekton somehow. They did manage to take down FlyQuest, as PoE finally had a game where he actually carried. You know, like he used to.

There’s almost nothing for them to take from this split as a learning experience, no positives to take, nothing, really. Revenge looks okay, but not good enough to carry from the top lane. Admittedly, it’s hard to tell, because his bot lane make it so very difficult to actually carry.

Look at what they’ve taken from us.
