LEC Summer Split 2020 Week 6 Preview
We took some time off but so did the LEC so we didn't miss much with this league, but we are back and the table is still pretty jaw ...
The first day of the Tyler1 Championship Series is upon us and there were four series to go through. We started off really slow with The Golden Gods against Hipgrabbers, DisguisedToast and his team fought hard but were completely overshadowed.
Clyde, HIP’s Support showed up huge in the Bot Lane, maybe even more so than the ex-LCS players in Damonte and Akaadian. On GOD’s team, Ablazeolive was against the world on Ryze for two games in the series. In the first game MistyStumpy picked the Vayne into Ornn and was unable to snowball his lead into the likes of Olaf and the Xayah/Rakan combo.
This isn’t a professional level tournament and overall this first series makes that very apparent but, maybe it is just early in the day to be playing competitively. There were sparks of genius towards the end of game two but it really was more of a tug of war than a boxing match where Ablazeolive on Ryze carried his four wards to victory.
Game 3 offered a little excitement as it was the last game of the series but in the end HIP took it 3-2.
Maryville University really showed up today as the team swiftly defeated Redmercy Turning 30, a team consisting of Pants are Dragon, Gamer Girl, fwii, eat tagyuan and 10 IQ Player. Pants are Dragon fell apart in the top lane and the rest of the team failed to pick up after him.
In their quarterfinal bout MU and HIP traded games in the series taking us to the third game of the series. It began as a back and forth but Marryville are beginning to prove to be favorites as they ran away with the game in the end.
Team E Turner really smashed BUGG in game 1, with nearly 10 times the kills it was no contest for them. Revenge and Metaphor all but destroyed and this game fealt more hype than the other 2 series so far today. Maybe most of that is off the back of the casters Voyboy and YoungRezzy (Rezzy_LoL).
TET managed to pull another smash of a victory in game 2 and are obviously another big contender to take the tournament. Of course, it really didn't look like BUGG were ready for the tournament. With only one set of unseen teams left today the competition isn’t as fierce as some would have expected.
Finals Week started off slow with their Jungler falling behind on the Lee Sin but with Mordekaiser and Lissandra unable to die they stormed their way back against LowKey and their comp resembled a more soloque like style that needs to be shored up moving into the next match.
The Second was essentially the same as the first with Finals Week smashing. I’m not sure how much of that is due to FW being dominant as opposed to LowKey being just, not good at the game.
Team E Turner proved LowKey was just a bad team by ultimately smashing Finals Week in a two and done bout. Every single series has pretty much been this exact one where one team simply outperforms the other across the board. Metaphor and Revenge are really showing up for the squad today.
Game one was arguably the best game of the series. Kills were close, gold was close, fights were close, objectives were close. Until around 22 minutes where TT started to run away with the game after just 1 teamfight after Baron.at the 28 minute mark TT were able to secure the game one victory.
Game two played out similarly to game one where things were fairly even but TT just scaled harder and the college kids met their match. Even though it was a 2-0, this was the most solid match from day one. Congrats to Metaphor and Team E Turner on being the first team in the finals!
This is Metaphor and Team E Turner’s 3rd TCS Finals appearance and for the first day of games, a 70k+ peak viewer count the TCS is set to compete with some of the more well known tournaments in other Esports as well as some of the main regions regular season games. This event, while perhaps displaying some of the less professional casters and analysts as well as just gameplay in general, it’s still a spectacle and worth the watch.
