The story of Kanavi
Kanavi has made his name known tho whole world despite drama around Griffin and his contract.
The newest contender for the best series of the tournament, some of the best personalities in the games made for good games for sure. Sanchovies showed up for TS when it counted most and considering all the flame he received prior to the matches today. Yassuo on the other hand…. Kinda made it look scripted with his running it down in both of the team's losses.
It’s still difficult to analyze the TCS matches to a certain extent but each of the games won this series came from the Red Side Team, which is pretty unusual considering the mostly even matchups across all lanes. Some may say Trick’s champion pool was the problem this game but after Yassuo Ryze ulted Trick2g alone into the enemy team, I think we can look elsewhere at Tricky Snakes reasons for losing.
Game one was doomed from the start for team ME, they had to sub in their Jungler for somebody else and although the Ornn pick may have raised a few eyebrows, the academy player lined roster of FBY was just a little too organized for the solo que stars on ME.
Game two was essentially the same as game one, even with Mirage Esports subbing back in their main Jungler Hyami. FBY got an early lead and out performed in the jungle to end up steam rolling a less organized ME. Moving into the Quarterfinals, FBY is looking to be the favorite against the likes of Genius Gang.
In game one of the series FBY struggled to find a lead, and then blew GG out of the water. At around the 20 minute mark when it looked like it was all over for GG, the respawns came in clutch for GG and they managed to hold on for a little longer. The ray of hope was snuffed out only two minutes later and FBY destroyed.
The theme of the day seems to be slow rolling snow bally leads. Fragas and his squad move on to semifinals awaiting the rest of the brackets matches where EU Papadas and Full Spectrum seem to be favored heavily.
A lot of misplay out of SY led to Full Spectrum eventually closing out a shaky game 1 while game two fell the exact opposite way with Sam’s Yams capitalizing on FS’s mistakes. It was a relatively close series going all the way to three games.
In game 3 Full Spectrum was able to get a lead early and maintain it all the way through to victory. This was a good series but overall it feels as though the competition in this half of the bracket is a lot less competitive than some of the other teams.
As is tradition the NA team absolutely obliterated the EU representative in game one, with game two looking just fine for WUR we will get a nice game two. Maybe there’s a chance for EU to pull it together with faka and Shiro.
EU was able to outplay and out maneuver WUR in the end, pretty much the opposite of game one with a little more fight in the eyes of WUR. Game three is set to be a good one and either of these teams could be contenders moving forward.
EU came out stomping WUR but after the 20 minute mark BarbecueRibs and Ino1 wrestled the gold lead down to about even. In a slugfest of a match WUR finally canceled EU at 36:50 after trading Baron for Elder Dragon.
Another slugfest of a game, these two teams are clearly some of the best in the tournament. If you look closely though it becomes obvious which players are going to need back surgery and which ones are still sucking on their thumbs. BarbecueRibs pops off again, Ino1 on the Xayah is too strong. While on the FS’ side Sudzzi and ozkai do their best to outplay everyone on the map.In the end though 700kg grandma on the Karthus did too much damage for FS to handle.
In a 45 minute stalemate where FS had all the time in the world to be ahead and scale, Washed Up and Random were able to clutch it out and off the back of pick on Pyke, and a 500+ farm Sivir. Moving on to the Semi Finals, it’ll be a solid match between WUR and FBY. At first glance it seems to be an uphill battle for WUR but if they can clutch up one last time they’ll be headed to the finals.
In game one FBY found a decent lead by the 15 minute mark, WUR pulled out an Azir for their mid lane which hasn’t been seen in a long time. Ultimately Fragas and his squad demolished WUR with some resistance and took game one pre 20 minutes.
Game two played out a lot more evenly with Wur having a small gold advantage at 15. At 23:50 a fight breaks out that changes the tide of the game in FBY’s favor off the back of an Akali double kill. From there FBY ran away with the game taking the series 2-0.
After a long 14 hour day of League of Legends we are left with a Team E Turner vs Fragas’s Baby Yodas Finals match. The match will take place Saturday, December 21st at 3pm Eastern and will be a classic Best of Five series. With the stream today (Dec. 15th) peaking at 91k viewers, and Tyler1 himself casting the Finals, it is sure to be little else, other than epic.
