Week 5 – NA LCS Spring Split 2017

Week 5 of the NA LCS Spring Split 2017 will herald the era of return legs and provides plenty of room for revenge and retribution on Summoner’s Rift. All teams played each other in the first few weeks and some of them have still a score to settle with their enemies. The NA LCS is known for upsets and suprises, the second round of the season will – for the good of all League of Legends fans – hopefully not change this. While a few teams like SK Telecom T1, Samsung or Cloud9 decided to not participate at the League of Legends tournament of the Intel Extreme Masters World Championship in Katowice to set their focus on the ongoing season, other international high-class LoL teams are ready to accept this challenge. Please keep in mind that the LCS Spring Split will take a one-week break after Week 5 to reconcile the tight schedule with the IEM Katowice. On Sunday Cloud9 and Team SoloMid will clash in a battle for the first spot on the ladder, don’t miss to turn in for breathtaking League of Legends action!

NA LCS Spring Split Week 5 – Day 3:

FlyQuest vs. Team SoloMid NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 5
Match #1: FlyQuest NA LCS 2017 - Logo Fly Quest vs. Team Logo TSM NA LCS 2017 Team SoloMid

February 19th, 12:00 PM PST/ 03:00 PM EST/ 21:00 CET

Team Solo Mid managed to put on a set of fantastic performances when they were facing off against Cloud 9 during their Week 5 Day 2 series, they’re looking stronger than ever and managed to show off a few of their improvements during the series. FlyQuest have been having a harder time, having fallen to Team Dignitas, but are looking to push back into a 2nd place position on the ladder. Can they get back there? Catch the games when they go live on Sunday, February 19th, to find out!

FlyQuest NA LCS 2017 - LogoFlyQuest – Their mistakes have been getting the best of them, they previously looked like a damn near unstoppable team but their recent performances have been lacklustre. They’re going to need to channel the strengths that they had shown during the earlier weeks of the split if they want to take this series.

Team Logo TSM NA LCS 2017Team Solo Mid – TSM are stepping up, they’re climbing the ladder and have managed to put on consistent phenomenal performances recently. They’re still a little shaky, losing their series against FOX shows this, but they’re looking refreshed for Week 5 and want to take those higher positions on the ladder.

It would appear that FlyQuest are at an advantage here, at least whilst looking at regular statistics. They’ve taken the same amount of victories and fewer losses, their individual game performances have been stronger and more consistent throughout the weeks but their recent performances bring this into question. Team Solo Mid are looking stronger than ever, they really pushed C9 to their limits on Day 2 when they took the series away and if they play in a similar manner and on a similar level then FlyQuest are certainly in for some trouble. FlyQuest are going to want to play for the late game, their shot calling and adaptions should be able to carry them through if they’re able to maintain themselves and keep the gold close to equal. Team Solo Mid are going to want to pressure around the middle stages of the game and find advantageous engagements; this could quickly build a lead for them and assist them in taking control of FlyQuest’s strengths.

Prediction: Team Solo Mid Victory. With TSM playing on a phenomenal level during their Day 2 performances and with FlyQuest making more mistakes than usual recently I think TSM will be able to take advantage of certain aspects of the game during the middle stages. Team fighting could quickly become advantageous for them and I think it could propel them into a lead, assisting them in taking the series. It’ll be far from easy though!

Phoenix1 vs. Cloud9 NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 5
Match #2: Team Logo Phoenix1 NA LCS 2017 Phoenix1 vs. Team Logo Cloud9 NA LCS 2017 Cloud9

February 19th, 03:00 PM PST/ 06:00 PM EST/ 24:00 CET

Phoenix 1 took a commanding victory over Team Envyus but their recent loss to Counter Logic Gaming really pushed them back, with Cloud 9 having lost a series now the possibilities are open for other teams to take not and push on. Cloud 9 took a pretty rough loss against TSM, their 1st series loss of the season; will it become a more common occurrence? Tune into the games when they go live on Sunday, February 19th, to find out!

Team Logo Phoenix1 NA LCS 2017Phoenix 1 – P1 have looked quite strong so far this season, maybe not as a top 3 team but definitely as a contender. A lot of their earlier performances in the season were faulty and they ran into their fair share of issues but they’re conquering these and improving, will it be enough to take down the number one team though?

Team Logo Cloud9 NA LCS 2017Cloud 9 – C9 just took their 1st loss of the season, they’re still standing exceedingly strong though. After taking their loss against Team Solo Mid it’s apparent that they do have weaknesses, these will need to quickly be improved on if they’re looking to keep a hold of their 1st place position. A few small mistakes could cost them dearly.

Cloud 9 is at a definite advantage here; their morale might not be as high as usual though. A knock to their confidence could halt some of their earlier pressure but I expect them to continue performing on a phenomenal level. They’re a top team for a reason; they’ll be able to hold it together. Phoenix 1 are currently sitting in 4th place but other teams are closing in on their position, with a few aggressive movements around the middle stages of the game could give them small advantages. If they do so in a similar way that TSM did, with flanks and rotations, they might be able to make quick work of a few skirmishes and begin controlling objectives, this will let them dictate the pace of the game and give them room to make precise and confident calls as to how they’d like to proceed throughout the games.

Prediction: Cloud 9 Victory. Even though a weakness has been exposed for them, Cloud 9 is in a stronger position to take this series. They’ve made quick work of Phoenix 1 before and I expect them to do the same here, precise and confident. They shouldn’t run into too many issues during the series and I expect them to take it with a reasonable amount of comfort.

Immortals vs. Echo Fox NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 5
Match #1: Team Logo Immortals NA LCS 2017 Immortals vs. Team Logo Echo Fox NA LCS 2017 Echo Fox

February 19th, 12:00 PM PST/ 03:00 PM EST/ 21:00 CET

Head to head record: Immortals 1:0 Echo Fox

Echo Fox couldn’t hold on, during Week 5 Day 2 they were facing off against Team Envyus, who were quite clearly at the bottom of the ladder, and because of this their position on the ladder is now in trouble. Immortals also fell during their most recent series but they were able to put up a fight, with both of these teams appearing to be on a decline which one will pull things back? Catch the games when they go live on Sunday, February 19th, to find out!

Team Logo Immortals NA LCS 2017Immortals – Their series against CLG on day 2 was definitely a hit to their position on the ladder, they’re now tied in 5th place with both CLG and Echo Fox. That means this series here could push Immortals into solidifying the 5th place position and will get them that much closer to the top.

Team Logo Unicorns of Love EU LCS 2017Echo Fox – Mistakes were made, they quickly fell to Team Envyus on Day 2 without managing to contest the series and it happened because their team fighting just wasn’t working out. They seemed to be in a slight shambles and it held them back immensely. They’re going to need to unite and work in cohesion if they want to hold onto their 5th place.

After their most recent performances I think Immortals are pushing ahead here slightly, but the advantage they hold would be only slight. Both teams are in the same position on the ladder for a reason and it’s because they’re consistently making mistakes. It’s holding them back and every team on the ladder has been able to take advantage of it. Echo Fox are going to need to really try to push their early game strengths during this series whereas Immortals are going to want to stall their way through the early game and work on their engagements during the middle and later stages of the game.

Prediction: Immortals Victory. Immortals have made fewer mistakes recently, they’ve looked to be on a fairly consistent level still and I think their middle and late game team fighting will push them ahead of Echo Fox throughout the series. Unless Echo Fox can take hold of the early games throughout the series I think Immortals will stand their ground quite nicely.

Team Liquid vs. Counter Logic Gaming NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 5
Match #2: Team Logo Liquid NA LCS 2017 Team Liquid vs. Team Logo CLG NA LCS 2017 Counter Logic Gaming

February 19th, 03:00 PM PST/ 06:00 PM EST/ 24:00 CET

Head to head: Counter Logic Gaming 0:1 Team Liquid

Now we’ve hit the half way mark for the split we’re seeing repeated conflicts. Counter Logic Gaming lost their series against Team Liquid during the 1st week of the split and this is their chance for revenge. Team Liquid made quick work of the previous series but haven’t has as much luck throughout the weeks, can they keep their hold over CLG, or will it fail?

Team Logo CLG NA LCS 2017Counter Logic Gaming – After losing their 1st series against Team Liquid, Counter Logic Gaming have come a long way. They’re looking stronger now than they did in those original weeks and they’ve made a number of improvements. They’re in a nice position here, can they get their revenge?

Team Logo Liquid NA LCS 2017Team Liquid – Team Liquid bested CLG before, they did so in a confident manner too. They took the series without issue and have only improved since then. They’ve not has the strongest split so far though, so they could run into some issues. With their own improvements they’ll be looking to hold CLG back as they try to climb into a more secure position on the ladder.

Counter Logic Gaming would appear to be at an advantage here, over the course of the split so far they’ve made enough improvements to render those first few performances null. When they faced off against TL before they were a shambles and TL took advantage of that, now they’re more cohesive and working together properly; they’ll be much more challenging. Team Liquid are going to need to try and find a few advantages during the earlier stages of the game, CLG often thrive through the middle and later stages with their team fighting and coordination. TL will need to build quick and aggressive lines of vision to search for opportunities; a few advantageous skirmishes could go a long way for them, especially in terms of objective and map control.

Prediction: Counter Logic Gaming Victory. Counter Logic Gaming may have lost their 1st series against Team Liquid but as the weeks have passed CLG have made significantly more improvements than TL. They’ve started to adapt more appropriately to their opponents and I think during this series that quality will take them far.

NA LCS Spring Split Week 5 – Day 2:

Counter Logic Gaming vs. Immortals NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 5
Match #1: Team Logo CLG NA LCS 2017 Counter Logic Gaming vs. Team Logo Immortals NA LCS 2017 Immortals

February 18th, 12:00 PM PST/ 03:00 PM EST/ 21:00 CET

Both of these teams are sitting closely on the ladder, Immortals are ahead slightly with a 9:10 individual game score and 4 series victories under their belt and this is followed by CLG, just 1 position below them on the ladder, with an 8:11 individual game score and 3 series victories. This series could push CLG into a significantly stronger position, but will Immortals go down easily? I don’t think so! Make sure you catch the games when they go live on Saturday, February 18th, to find out who comes out on top!

Team Logo CLG NA LCS 2017Counter Logic Gaming – CLG have been performing fairly consistently, their position on the ladder isn’t too bad. They may be sitting in 7th place but only a single series victory is stopping them from climbing up multiple positions, if luck favours them anyway. This series could set up future weeks for them to climb, but it’s going to be a challenge.

Team Logo Immortals NA LCS 2017Immortals – IMT are still having a slightly harder time during the earlier stages of their games, their middle stage and late game seem quite strong but avoiding those early issues is a must. They might want to consider applying more pressure with their jungler or some lane rotations to free them up during those stages as their late game has been dominant.

Immortals look to be at a very slight advantage here, not much separates these 2 performing teams but Immortals have had a more consistent style and strategy and it’s showing in minor ways. Counter Logic Gaming are going to want to try to take advantage of the early stage weakness that Immortals are often hindered by, they can do this by using their jungle to apply pressure to the bottom and top lanes, this will free them up significantly to gain vision advantages for the middle stages of the game where they can find engagements and objective opportunities, giving them a sizable and controlling lead. Immortals are going to need to build a safe line of vision close to their opponents jungle entrances, this will notify them of any jungle pressure that CLG might want to pump out and will give them time to react or rotate, depending on if they want to make an aggressive move. If Immortals can avoid an early deficit their middle and late game control could quite easily build them a lead, if they patiently wait for the right engagements; with how well they’ve been able to control their opponents once they’ve got a hold of a lead it’d create an extremely challenging time for CLG.

Prediction: Immortals Victory. Immortals have shown that once they can get out of the earlier stages of the game they’re extremely difficult to deal with. Counter Logic Gaming don’t often heavily pressure the earlier stages of the game, because of this I think Immortals will hit their peak with relative safety and will take the series; it won’t come easily though!

Cloud9 vs. Team SoloMid NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 5
Match #2: Team Logo Cloud9 NA LCS 2017 Cloud9 vs. Team Logo TSM NA LCS 2017 Team SoloMid

February 18th, 03:00 PM PST/ 06:00 PM EST/ 24:00 CET

Cloud 9 remain undefeated and are continuing to improve; they’re acting more precisely and reacting more quickly. They’re undefeated for a reason but now they’re being challenged by another team that’s sitting close to the top of the ladder, Team Solo Mid. TSM has the ability to push forward at this point; claiming 2nd place, but it’s going to be one hell of a challenge. Find out if they can do it when the games go live on Saturday, February 18th!

Team Logo Cloud9 NA LCS 2017Cloud 9 – Having been undefeated for this long just continues to prove that Cloud 9 is the strongest performing team in their region. But there’s still a team they’re yet to face and as TSM step up, C9 could take a step down. They’re going to need to watch for early jungle pressure and will need to maintain vision control of they hope to keep their perfect score.

Team Logo TSM NA LCS 2017Team Solo Mid – TSM have been presented a phenomenal opportunity after Team Dignitas were able to take down FLY. TSM have the opportunity to push into 2nd place but a formidable challenge stands in the way. C9 are going to need to be pressured rigorously but TSM have the chance to break their perfect score here.

Cloud 9 is definitely at an advantage here, a team doesn’t go undefeated unless they’re up to par. They’ve shown that they can adapt through difficult situations, they’ve got strategies for many different types of occasions or to suit many different styles of play and they’re currently well ahead on the ladder. Team Solo Mid will need to greatly utilize their jungler here and I think they should have a focus around the bottom lane and the bottom side of the map; they could quickly spread their vision across the bottom side river and into their opponent’s bottom side jungle. This will help them catch out early aggression on that side of the map and will also notify them of when they can strike, pressuring the structure and dragon on the bottom side of the map during the early stages of the game can quickly push them into a lead. They’ll still need to watch out for the middle and late game strategies or stalling from Cloud 9, TSM will need to be confident and decisive if they plan on taking this series.

Prediction: Cloud 9 Victory. With how well they’ve been able to adapt to challenging opponents to far I think Cloud 9 are in a comfortable position to take on any opposition in this region at the moment. Unless they’re making multiple mistakes, Cloud 9 should be able to play with relative comfort and still come out on top of this series; they’ll need to try to keep an eye out for early jungle pressure though!

Team Liquid vs. Team Dignitas NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 5
Match #1: Team Logo Liquid NA LCS 2017 Team Liquid vs. Team Logo Dignitas NA LCS 2017 Team Dignitas

February 18th, 12:00 PM PST/ 03:00 PM EST/ 21:00 CET

Team Dignitas came up with a few surprises when they managed to take down FlyQuest on Week 5 day 1, but a lot of people are saying that it was because Dignitas were able to capitalize on the mistakes of their opponents. Well, even so they managed to come out on top of a formidably place team and will come into this series against Team Liquid with astounding confidence, should TL be afraid? Find out when the games go live on Saturday, February 18th!

Team Logo Liquid NA LCS 2017Team Liquid – Currently in 9th place on the ladder and at risk of relegation at the end of the split, Team Liquid are going to need to start stepping up. Team Dignitas may have taken down a top team, but Team Liquid also have the potential to do it. A few minor improvements can go a long way, adaptions and rotations could be exactly what they need.

Team Dignitas Logo NA LCS 2017Team Dignitas – Congratulations to DIG for taking down FLY, but the challengers are still coming. Team Dignitas will need to watch out here, they’ve just climbed to 8th place on the ladder and are relatively safe if they can hold it. But a desperate Team Liquid could quickly take the position if DIG happens to make any mistakes here.

Both teams are on pretty equal footing here, Team Dignitas are pushing slightly ahead and are proving to be an improving team but Team Liquid has also shown a few improvements on their own. Team Dignitas managed to take down FLY with is no small feat, they’ll be heading into this series with a phenomenal amount of confidence and this could lead them into early aggressive movements to build a lead. If DIG take an early lead it could spell quick victory for them as TL often have issues stalling out games and climbing back. Team Liquid are going to need to play with patience and precision, if they can avoid making mistakes and play with powerful engagements around the middle stages of the game they should be able to gain some map control and a lead, this could be enough for them to slowly take control of the game.

Prediction: Team Dignitas Victory. Team Dignitas are currently ahead on the ladder and after taking down FlyQuest their currently skill level is debateable. Sure, they took the series because of multiple mistakes made by FLY but if DIG weren’t good enough those mistakes wouldn’t have made a difference. I think DIG will be able to take control of the game through TL’s mistakes in the earlier stages of the game but taking the entire series will be a challenge.

Team Envy vs. Echo Fox NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 5
Match #2: Team Logo Envy NA LCS 2017 Team EnVyUs vs. Team Logo Echo Fox NA LCS 2017 Echo Fox

February 18th, 03:00 PM PST/ 06:00 PM EST/ 24:00 CET

Echo Fox have managed to climb and hold onto a fairly strong position on the ladder but it’s currently heavily contested. Sitting in 5th place with a series score of 4:4 has them closely tied with 2 other competing teams. Their individual game score is letting them down slightly, being at 10:10, but in comparison to Team Envyus who’re on 3:14 with only a single series under their belt they’re looking formidable. Can FOX take the series and climb or will NV put up a fight to remember? Catch the games when they go live on Saturday, February 18th, to find out!

Team Logo Envy NA LCS 2017Team Envyus – NV have shown slight promise and potential, they were previously able to come out on top of a series against Team Liquid and if the Week 5 games so far have shown us anything it’s that any team can make a mistake and any other team can capitalise on it. If NV plays with some patience they might be able to push forward here.

Team Logo Unicorns of Love EU LCS 2017Echo Fox – Echo Fox have proven time and time again that their early game is a force to be reckoned with, if they continue their streak of early pressure they could look at closing out this series fairly quickly. But if NV is playing more reserved then FOX will need to rely on their not so solid shot-calling; a few improvements on that could go a long way.

Echo Fox are definitely at an advantage here, they’re sitting in 5th place on the ladder with a significantly better series and individual game score than Team Envyus. Team Envyus haven’t been able to compete against many of the performing teams in the region and maybe it’s because they’ve not found a comfortable style. They’ve tried early aggression, calculated middle game precision etc. Maybe they need to play with more patience and adopt a more reactive style of play. If they can play for the later stages of the game here they might be able to capitalize on the shaky shot-calling of Echo Fox, this will also let them avoid their own mistakes during the earlier stages of the game. Echo Fox are likely to heavily pressure during the earlier stages of the game to try and build a lead, NV will need to concede to early pressure and plan for the later stages of the game where their own team fighting and shot calling might be more reliable.

Prediction: Echo Fox Victory. I think the early game pressure that Echo Fox will be able to pump out will quickly render any strategies that NV is preparing to be null. Even if Team Envyus manage to stall out the game to try to play to their own strengths Echo Fox have already shown that their map control and team fighting can be dangerous, so they’re at a definite advantage and I think they’ll take the series with some degree of comfort.

NA LCS Spring Split Week 5 – Day 1:

Team Dignitas vs. FlyQuest NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 5
Match #1: Team Logo Dignitas NA LCS 2017 Team Dignitas vs. FlyQuest NA LCS 2017 - Logo Fly Quest

February 17th, 03:00 PM PST/ 06:00 PM EST/ 24:00 CET

FlyQuest had an unfortunately fall against Cloud9 recently but they put up one hell of a fight and managed to bring us some great games. Let’s hope they’re ready to bring us more fantastic performances as they face off against Dignitas! DIG is in an uphill battle from this point, to avoid relegations, and this series could be their statement. Make sure you catch the games when they go live on Friday, February 17th, to find out!

Team Dignitas Logo NA LCS 2017Team Dignitas – DIG will be battling against a new NA LCS titan, they’re going to need to head into this with adaptions ready, strategies ready and many more preparations ready. The early game will be the decider of each of these individual games along with the series. If Dignitas fail to make an impact quickly then they could be looking at a decline in their chances.

FlyQuest NA LCS 2017 - LogoFlyQuest – FLY took a bit of a hit when they fell to Cloud9, but sitting in such a strong position on the ladder has them looking formidable. With an overall score of 14:5 and with 6 series victories under their belt they’re ready to continue their push forward and strive for the top.

FlyQuest are undoubtedly at an advantage here, they’ve taken significantly more individual game victories along with significantly more series victories. They’ve proven to be more consistent, more precise, more strategic and more formidable. Team Dignitas are backed into a corner here but with a few aggressive early game movements, preferably around the middle and bottom side of the map, they should be able to gain some control by the middle stages of the game where they can force their opponents into fights or skirmishes that favour Team Dignitas. After their attempts at gaining a lead they’re going to want to extend their vision into and around their opponent’s jungle. This will allow them to catch out rotations or opponents that are roaming around on their own. This can proceed to set up more advantages for DIG to push and siege.

Prediction: FlyQuest Victory. FlyQuest have proven to be the stronger of the 2 performing teams, they’ve got more precise strategies that have been working against the majority of their opponents whereas DIG have been having issues against every opponent. FLY should be able to play comfortably and come out on top confidently, giving them the series victory.

Team Envy vs. Phoenix1 NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 5
Match #2: Team Logo Envy NA LCS 2017 Team EnVyUs vs. Team Logo Phoenix1 NA LCS 2017 Phoenix1

February 17th, 06:00 PM PST/ 09:00 PM EST/ 03:00 CET (next day)

Team Envyus are currently sitting in a very difficult position, 10th place on the ladder with only 3 individual game victories; a single series victory. In comparison to Phoenix 1, Team Envyus are stuck in an uphill battle of their own. Phoenix1 hold 4 series victories, along with losses, and have a total of 11 individual game victories. They’re striving to step forward but will NV hold them down? Catch the games when they go live on Friday, February 17th, to find out!

Team Logo Envy NA LCS 2017Team Envyus – NV have been unable to perform, even at the best of times. Because of this their match history looks pretty horrendous, they’re going to need to start making quick improvements and with a few minor changes they might be able to finally make an impact. Can it happen here though?

Team Logo Phoenix1 NA LCS 2017Phoenix 1 – P1 are sitting comfortably in 4th place but they’re awfully close to losing their position. Only a small amount of games separates them from losing their place and dropping down the ladder, so they’re going to need to do their best to take a clean series here and preserve their place.

Phoenix1 are definitely at an advantage here, NV are at the bottom for a reason and it’s because they’ve been unable to perform at a top level. Phoenix1 have run into issues, but not too many of them. They’ve been able to find game and series victories when they’ve overcome their opponents with great late game strategy. If NV can’t push for an early or middle stage lead they’ll only create more problems for themselves. I think they should play forward during the earlier stages, drawing the attention of the P1 jungler, and will need to use rotations from their other lanes to catch out the moving opponents to try and catch a small lead. This will help them prepare for the middle stages of the game where they’re likely to try and team fight, doing this around objectives that they’ve smothered with vision could give them greater positioning and information that will assist their engagements.

Prediction: Phoenix 1 Victory. Phoenix1 have already proven to be the stronger of the 2 performing teams, they’ve shown that they’re more consistent and have more precise strategies. If they can maintain an equal early game I think they’ll be able to come out on top of this series relatively comfortable.
