DamWon take down Cloud9

It was close. At least, until it wasn’t. Cloud9 went toe-to-toe with DamWon early on, even winning out on kills – but it was all in vain. They still came in to the mid game behind, and Khan taught the new kid in the top lane a lesson in top diff. Too late to bring in Tyler1 as a sub?

MAD Lions do EU proud

Alright, it was only PSG Talon, but some people thought they might lose. MAD Lions absolutely smashed the PCS champions thanks to a bot lane clinic from Kaiser and Carzzy. Bot lane weakness? We don’t think so.

Now all you’ve got to do, is do better than Cloud9. Shouldn’t be too tough an ask?

FINAL GAME OF #MSI live-viewing w/ Nemesis coming up, PSG takes on MAD, in what I’m expecting to be a PSG win

@LSXYZ9, pre-game on Twitter. Oops!

The LEC is back!

Future MSI champions (don’t question it) MAD Lions will be fighting to defend their LEC crown from June 11th. In the meantime, we’ve got MSI and rostermania to look forward to. Maybe we’ll see a reinvigorated FNATIC and a genuine four-horse race for first!

F in the chat for Pentanet

Despite their great banter and even better hair, the Oceanic representatives got cooked by RNG and lost an important game to the Unicorns of Love to kick off MSI. 

No time to feel sorry for themselves, though, as they play RNG again today. Last game was a blowout through the bot lane, as Gala recovered from getting destroyed by RatIRL in solo queue to slice through Oceania’s hearts.
