The story of Kanavi
Kanavi has made his name known tho whole world despite drama around Griffin and his contract.
Week two of the LCS is about to begin and after week one we were left guessing about who is actually good and bad. With the little information given to us from last week let’s dive into the upcoming week. If you missed last week make sure to check out our Week one review and to learn more about the LCS make sure to check out our event page here.
Both teams are off to a bad start but 100T managed to trip into a win last week. 100T needs Meteos to shape up and Ryoma to show up if they want to win against CLG. That being said 0-2 CLG is looking to bounce back after one of the most disappointing showings of the whole weekend. 100 Thieves should be favored to win this game even if CLG rally, given 100T has rectified their week one problems.
Dignitas came in with a bang last week, and a victory over the season favorites would be nice here and is especially possible if Broxah’s visa problems persist into week 2. TL was able to pull one over on TSM which means this team is still a force to be reckoned with. Without hedging our bets lets assume Broxah is unavailable, the hype train wants us to follow DIG but TL is far too scary to downplay. It will be a close one but TL should be able to take this one.
Immortals have proven that they have the longevity to win games, but when these old timers are met with the faster paced players of C9, it seems fairly doomed for IMT. Xmithie can shut down Blaber which may set C9 into disarray, but if Blaber has his way, Xmithie is going to hear the term “Jungle Difference” for the first time since CLG. C9 should win coming into this one.
Goldenglue put up a huge fight last week and really made waves in the discussion about NA Mids. That being said the rest of his team, other than Closer, kind of flopped over when things got hard. EG’s debut was less than satisfactory but they won over 100T and got a real chance to flex their muscles. EG are favored over GG and should win, but if Hauntzer and that strange Bot lane can pull it together then this one will turn out differently than expectations.
FlyQuest are planting over 200 trees already this split! They are going to need a different brand of water though once TL is done with them. FlyQuest did great last week but they won over less dominant teams. Liquid should win here and I don’t have as much confidence in an upset for FLY as I do for DIG.
TSM really needs to find a win this week. I'm certain it will come but I am not so certain it will come over EG. EG really showed their strengths and weaknesses last week while TSM really only showed weakness. If TSM cleans up the draft they could take it but EG has my faith this week.
This is 100T real chance to prove their semi-reunion was a great move. If they can stop the potentially 3-0 C9 team here it will say a lot and make them more of a threat moving forward. That being said C9 has their second hurdle to get over and it's a smaller hurdle than their first one, C9 should win on the day.
This match is one of the closest if not the closest one of the whole weekend. Neither team is really expected to do great at this point and even though IMT was able to come out on top over TSM, it was in a long drawn out game I think the upset of the week is going to come out here. GG have the potential to win this one and if they don’t, it may be time to rethink their bot laner already.
As both of these teams have played TL coming into their match with each other, this will be a really telling match. Should both of these teams lose to TL it will be a battle for placement, if one team beats TL and the other doesn’t you should back them. If they both win, well I’d have to say that DIG should be slightly favored.
The “El Clasico” rivalry tops off week 2 of the Spring Split. This rivalry may have been forgotten by some, and never known by others, but long time LCS fans know the rivalry is there. Both teams will be coming into this game a shadow of their former selves, but hopefully we see a grandstand match. Recency bias may have you leaning towards CLG, but I side with history and TSM.
