2020 LCS Spring Week 3 Review

LCS Week 3 Review

The third week of the LCS has concluded and it was definitely the week of upsets! Counter Logic Gaming almost went 2-0 and Golden Guardians beat Team Liquid with a Bot Lane solo kill on Doublelift and his notorious Senna pick! If you missed any games from last week make sure to check out our Week 2 Review or if you’re new to the pro scene check out our event page here

LCS Week 3 Matches

Evil Geniuses vs Counter Logic Gaming

CLG win

EG came in hot with a first blood and while it started off like another CLG loss, CLG was able to invest in the power of Stixxay and win their first match with Ruin on Soraka. The last place squad still has a mountain to climb but at least they won't go winless on the split. 

100 Thieves vs Team Liquid 

100T win

Ssumday refused to lose to TL this match with a dominant performance on the Aatrox into Impact’s Gangplank. This game TL was really running it down and even though Jensen stole a Baron and it took 100T 42 minutes, they still walked away with a win on the day. But this was only the beginning of Tl’s problems.

Team SoloMid vs Dignitas

TSM win

Kobbe was the unsung hero of this match with nothing else but raw damage output. Dardoch managed to control the Jungle with the Sett pick and Dignitas just slowly fell more and more behind until TSM finally took the Nexus down at the 33 minute mark.

Cloud9 vs FlyQuest

C9 win

Zven promised to run it down this game, but he lied. Cloud9 Ran all over FLY and closed it out in 30 minutes. FlyQuest had such a promising last couple of weeks but they looked closer to CLG in this one.

Immortals vs 100 Thieves

IMT win

Immortals ultimately took over this game before 100T knew they were in the game. Just like Ssumday was the savior in 100T’s first game this week, he was ultimately their downfall (or at least a big part of it) in their second game. IMT really buckled down and took care of business this week. 

Golden Guardians vs Team SoloMid

TSM win

TSM really made a name for themselves this week with finally proving that they aren’t a middle of the pack team, beating out a lower team in GG and a more experienced team in DIG. This match was a total storm from the TSM squad and their match against C9 might be overshadowed by Broxah’s possible entrance to the LCS, but it will be a fierce game to be sure.

Dignitas vs Cloud9 

C9 win

Cloud9 really showed some insane macro abilities this match out maneuvering DIG at every angle. This is a worrying trend for DIG when we came into this week thinking this would be C9’s first Spring challenger and we got a much less competitive game.

FlyQuest vs Evil Geniuses

EG win

While EG winning here throws my predictions and the Spring Leaderboards into a bit of a stand still, they looked good doing it and really needed a win here. They announced a new anti-initiative based on “burning” trees where they donate books to the same effect that FLY plants trees. An 0-2 week for FLY is a shame, a 1-1 week for EG was more or less expected.

Team Liquid vs Golden Guardians

GG win

This was an eye opening game for Team Liquid, Liquid fans, and analysts alike. Sure, sometimes teams have a bad day, sometimes games are doomed before we que up for a match but there is no excuse here for TL. Shernfire can’t be the scapegoat in a game that mostly fell back on the Bot Lane and Jensen’s seeming lack of attention. Complacent? Maybe. Jungle Difference? Certainly not.

Counter Logic Gaming vs Immortals

IMT win

This game ended similarly to the Damwon Gaming vs APK Prince match in the LCK. The team that wasn’t expected to win (CLG) got off to an early lead and seemed to take control over most of the map in a great fashion, but in a play for Baron the better team (IMT) sent two players into the worse teams base and stopped them dead in their tracks to steal the game.

LCS Week 1 Standings

  1. Cloud9 6-0
  2. Immortals 4-2
  3. Team SoloMid 4-2
  4. 100 Thieves 3-3
  5. Team Dignitas 3-3
  6. FlyQuest 3-3
  7. Golden Guardians 2-4 
  8. Evil Geniuses 2-4
  9. Team Liquid 2-4
  10. Counter Logic Gaming 1-5

A lot of upsets make the prediction score pretty low, but the excitement for the games to come really high, Broxah may be coming in for Week 4 of the LCS, but we may still be a week or so away from seeing him so TL fans, wait a bit longer. As for everyone else, there’s a 0-2 week separating C9 from the rest of the League, and someone gotta bring ‘em down eventually.
