Week 6 – NA LCS Spring Split 2017

We look back at a turbulent week of the 2017 LCS Season 7 Spring Split with countless surprises and upsets but also the upcoming Week 6 of the NA LCS will be exciting and nerve-racking for all teams, players, coaches and fans in front of their screens. Fortunately, many pros have a one-week vacation because the LoL tournament of the Intel Extreme Masters in Katowice causes a break in the schedule of the Western League of Legends leagues. While the European LCS is up to schedule with the favorites winning and the fans chanting,  the North American LoL world is upside down after last week’s games. Team SoloMid was able to conquer the two strongest teams in Week 5 and secured a place at the top of the table together with the Cloud9 team bringing the team in a good position for the upcoming Spring Playoffs. the former favorites had to accept two painful defeats. Also Team Liquid can be found equal with team EnVyUs at the bottom of the table, a playoff spot for Piglet and Co has has retreated into the far distance. We are already looking forward to see which gifts the NA LCS has in store for us in Week 6, so do not forget to turn on the streams for more League of Legends action on March 3rd.

NA LCS Spring Split Week 6 – Day 3:

Team Dignitas vs. Team SoloMid NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 6
Match #1: Team Logo Dignitas NA LCS 2017 Team Dignitas vs. Team Logo TSM NA LCS 2017 Team SoloMid

March 5th, 12:00 PM PST/ 03:00 PM EST/ 21:00 CET

Team Solo Mid has managed to climb their way to the top side of the ladder, sitting comfortably in 2nd place with some room for error. They’ve had a set of phenomenal performances as of late, meaning their outstanding week 5 performances, and they’re looking to contest that 1st place on the ladder. Will Team Dignitas be a pain to their push? Tune into the games on Sunday, March 5th, to find out!

Team Dignitas Logo NA LCS 2017Team Dignitas – Team Dignitas were once a team to watch, contesting series after series. They’ve falling in the more recent weeks and have been unable to performance against the majority of competing teams. They’re in a difficult position but just a single series could push them up to 6th place on the ladder, which is significantly safer.

Team Logo TSM NA LCS 2017Team Solo Mid – Their recent performances propelled them up the ladder and if they can maintain that high level of play they could quite easily contest the top position on the ladder. The short break could have worked extremely well for them but it also works to their opponents advantage, has TSM stayed on their dominant level or are they going to hit a decline?

Team Solo Mid are definitely at an advantage here, they’re in a top position on the ladder and have had a string of extremely formidable performances recently, they were able to take down both of the top teams and squeeze their own way into a top position. Team Dignitas contrast this as they sit on the bottom side of the ladder but they’ve got an opportunity to quickly climb. If they can find a few advantages in the earlier stages of the game, with extended lines of vision close to their opponent’s jungle, they should be able to pick off a few opponents and find a lead for themselves. Using this lead they could solidify their chances at taking a few objectives which will make their engagements around the middle stages of the game significantly more commanding.

Prediction: Team Solo Mid Victory. TSM are by the top of the ladder for a reason, they’ve managed to take down the other top performing teams and are only improving. Their string of recent performances has pushed them ahead of many teams whilst DIG sits in trouble. I think TSM will be able to take this series with some degree of confidence.

Cloud9 vs. FlyQuest NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 6
Match #2: Team Logo Cloud9 NA LCS 2017 Cloud9 vs. FlyQuest NA LCS 2017 - Logo Fly Quest

March 5th, 03:00 PM PST/ 06:00 PM EST/ 24:00 CET

Cloud 9 has been running into more problems recently, they were an undefeated team until the more recent weeks and since their 1st loss they’ve only been running into more trouble. FlyQuest were in a similar position, they were looking like an extremely strong team but quickly hit a decline as other teams were making improvements. Both teams have the opportunity to push or hold onto 1st place here, FlyQuest definitely need to put in more work though. Who will come out on top? Tune into the games on Sunday, March 5th, to find out!

Team Logo Cloud9 NA LCS 2017Cloud 9 –C9 were a dominant and formidable team, previously pushing back any top contestants. During the more recent weeks they’ve hit a bit of a block though, their strengths are still there but with progressing weeks the other teams have been improving and catching up. After the week’s break C9 could come back stronger, but will it be enough to hold onto 1st place?

FlyQuest NA LCS 2017 - LogoFlyQuest – FLY have been out of luck, since week 4 they’ve been unable to take a series. They’ve even fallen to teams that are placed by the bottom of the ladder. Their issues began to stem after their previous loss against Cloud 9 in week 4, but after the short break they could have their weaknesses covered. Could this be their moment, their way back to the top?

Cloud 9 is definitely at an advantage here; their recent performances have been stronger than those of FlyQuest. They also hold the head to head, taking a series victory the last time these 2 performing teams encountered each other. Cloud 9 sit in 1st place on the ladder but are quickly being pursued by Team Solo Mid. If C9 run into issues here they could lose their to position. FlyQuest definitely have the tools they need to take this series, their early game is relatively strong but their team fighting is often where they thrive, along with their late game control. I think they should play with patience and strong lines of vision during the earlier stages of the game, extending said vision and looking for opportunities during the middle stages. They should be able to find a few favourable engagements to attempt taking a lead, this could quickly translate into objective and map control, C9 won’t make it easy though.

Prediction: Cloud 9 Victory. C9 have been the stronger and more consistent of the 2 performing teams, they may have run into some more troubles recently but seeing as FLY have been unable to take a series since Week 4 and have often fallen to underdog teams I think C9 will come out on top of this series, after the short break FLY will make it a challenge though.

Echo Fox vs. Team Liquid NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 6
Match #3: Team Logo Echo Fox NA LCS 2017 Echo Fox vs. Team Logo Liquid NA LCS 2017 Team Liquid

March 5th, 12:00 PM PST/ 03:00 PM EST/ 21:00 CET

Echo Fox are sitting in 7th place on the ladder but have been a bit of an oddball, some of their performances are commanding and dominant but things quickly change as they seem to struggle. Their consistency has been greatly letting them down and as Team Liquid is making improvements they could quickly run into some difficulties. Will FOX’s consistency let them down once again? Tune into the games on Sunday, March 5th, to find out!

Team Logo Unicorns of Love EU LCS 2017Echo Fox – FOX have definitely been inconsistent, during the 4th week of the NA LCS they were able to come out on top of both CLG and TSM. Their performances afterwards were letting them down though; they were unable to push to even contest their week 5 series’ even when it was against teams that they could have come out on top of.

Team Logo Liquid NA LCS 2017Team Liquid – Much like FOX, Team Liquid have often run into trouble regarding their consistency. One week they’re able to take down higher placed teams but just moments after they quickly fall to equal or lower performing teams. Their strategies have often been easily countered and they’ve been having a harder time finding leads. Hopefully week 6 is good for them, they’ve already taken down IMT, and FOX is just the next step.

Echo Fox have proven to be the slightly more consistent of the 2 performing teams, although they’ve both run into a lot of issues regarding it. Team Liquid have more individual game victories, sitting on a 11:18 game score whereas FOX are on 10:14, although Echo Fox have been able to take more series victories with 4:6 in comparison to TL’s 3:8. These statistic prove their inconsistencies, TL have been able to contest more series victories but have been unable to make final pushes, Echo Fox have been able to push for those series victories but are more likely to run into trouble during a series. Team Liquid could adapt thoroughly throughout the series and extend their advantages during this series but if FOX play with confidence they could make quick work of the series.

Prediction: Team Liquid Victory. Having stronger individual game performances, I think Team Liquid will use their superior adapting throughout this series to find and take a lead. Echo Fox have often lost a series if they’ve been unable to take a quick game and because of this, along with TL’s recent performance against IMT, I think Team Liquid will find a way to come out on top.

Immortals vs. Team Envy NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 6
Match #4: Team Logo Immortals NA LCS 2017 Immortals vs. Team Logo Envy NA LCS 2017 Team EnVyUs

March 5th, 03:00 PM PST/ 06:00 PM EST/ 24:00 CET

Immortals have found themselves in 6th place on the ladder, only a few performances are keeping them from pushing to 3rd though. With how close a group of teams are sitting on the ladder just single performances are holding them back. Team Envyus are sitting at the bottom but after taking down Echo Fox during week 5 they could be making a push forward. Will they make it, causing issues for IMT here? Tune into the games on Sunday, March 5th, to find out!

Team Logo Immortals NA LCS 2017Immortals – After falling to Team Liquid during their Week 6 performance they could quickly run into issues and fall to the lower side of the NA LCS ladder. Having been placed against a team on the bottom of the ladder there’s hope for them, but if they continue to make mistakes they’re going to have a significantly harder time than expected.

Team Logo Envy NA LCS 2017Team Envy – NV are sitting at the bottom of the ladder and a significant amount of performances are needed for them to climb, with very little to lose they could look to shake things up. A few more spikes of aggression or rotations occurring more often could find them a lead, after the short break we can hope they’ve made improvements to their late game where they’ve often had trouble.

Immortals are definitely at an advantage here; they’re sitting with significantly more individual game victories and more than double the series victories. They’ve been able to contest many series’ against teams that are climbing the ladder, this is a huge leap above how NV have been performing. Team Envyus were recently able to come out on top of Echo Fox in a clean victory and this could be a sign of their improvements, but will it be enough? They’re going to need to try to find a lead during the earlier stages of the game, one of Immortals weaker stages, if they want to pressure the series. They’ll need to find a way forward with dominant vision control, this will aid them in finding advantageous fights of will allow them to pick off their opponents. IMT are definitely in the driving seat but they’ve often made mistakes that have caused future issues for them.

Prediction: Immortals Victory. Although Team Envyus are looking stronger recently, having only taken 5 games in total throughout the split so far I think the strengths of Immortals will keep NV down. Immortals have proven to be the stronger performing of the 2 competing teams and I think those strengths will show throughout this series.

NA LCS Spring Split Week 6 – Day 2:

Echo Fox vs. Cloud9 NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 6
Match #1: Team Logo Echo Fox NA LCS 2017 Echo Fox vs. Team Logo Cloud9 NA LCS 2017 Cloud9

March 4th, 12:00 PM PST/ 03:00 PM EST/ 21:00 CET

Echo Fox have been a little inconsistent, some of their performances have been fantastic but then it’ll appear as if they’re on a decline. If they can improve their consistency they might be able to push Cloud 9 out of their beloved 1st place position on the ladder. Cloud 9 has looked less dominant recently, could this be a decline of their own? Tune into the games when they go live on Saturday, March 4th, to find out!

Team Logo Unicorns of Love EU LCS 2017Echo Fox – If FOX could step up and bring us more performances like their 4th week competing in the NA LCS then we could be looking at quick changes to the ladder. Echo Fox have shown that they’re a challenge, or at least that they can be a challenge. Their consistency is their weakest point at the moment, if they lose an advantage early on things tend to quickly escape them.

Team Logo Cloud9 NA LCS 2017Cloud 9 – C9 quickly went from being an undefeated team to being an often contested team. Having to go up against Cloud 9 used to be a fear but after their more recent performances teams have been looking at it like a challenge. Cloud 9 are close to losing their 1st place position, can they bring it back and sit in comfort?

Cloud 9 would appear to be at an advantage here; they’ve taken twice as many series victories as Echo Fox and have been performing significantly better during their individual game performances. They’re currently sitting in the 1st place on the NA LCS ladder but their position is soon to be contested. Cloud 9 needs this series to stay in their position with comfort but Echo Fox have shown great strengths before and could bring them to this series. Echo Fox have often run into trouble when falling to a disadvantage during the earlier stages of the game, or their late game shot calling is letting them down. If they force deeper vision they could take their decision making more slowly, picking their choices with confidence and finding those key moments to build and push for a lead. Cloud 9 could be challenged here; Echo Fox have taken down some of the other top teams already.

Prediction: Cloud 9 Victory. C9 are sitting significantly ahead and I hope this series shows us why. After a set of weak performances C9 will be looking to prove themselves once again. I think they’ll crack this series open relatively quickly but will fall into a bit of trouble, eventually coming out on top.

Team SoloMid vs. Counter Logic Gaming NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 6
Match #2: Team Logo TSM NA LCS 2017 Team SoloMid vs. Team Logo CLG NA LCS 2017 Counter Logic Gaming

March 4th, 03:00 PM PST/ 06:00 PM EST/ 24:00 CET

The rivals are at it once again, the difference this split is that they’re not fighting for a top position. At least, Counter Logic Gaming isn’t fighting for it. Team Solo Mid is sitting in 2nd place with very little stopping them from pushing to 1st, Counter Logic Gaming could prove to be a challenge though, even though they’re only in 6th place. Can CLG stop TSM from taking the top spot? To find out you should catch the games when they go live on Saturday, March 4th!

Team Logo TSM NA LCS 2017Team Solo Mid – TSM have looked rough from time to time, they’ve not had the cleanest series performances but they’ve been able to come out on top the majority of the time. They’re sitting in 2nd place on the NA LCS ladder and they’ve got their eyes on the top. If they manage to perform consistently, similar to their week 5 performances, there shouldn’t be many problems.

Team Logo CLG NA LCS 2017Counter Logic Gaming – CLG may be sitting in 6th position but the NA LCS ladder is sitting fairly compact. A number of teams sitting by the middle of the ladder, CLG included, are only a few performances apart. This means that if CLG have made just a few improvements they could be looking to quickly take 3rd, creeping just behind TSM.

Team Solo Mid would appear to be at an advantage here, they’ve proven to be the stronger performing of the 2 competing teams and after their week 5 performances they’re looking like a fantastic contender for the 1st place NA LCS team. Counter Logic Gaming are in a more difficult position but could look to climb quickly, if they can show similar strengths to what they’d shown during their week 4 performances against P1 they could look to contest this series. A few pieces of calculated aggression, strong lines of vision and quick rotations could lead them into an extremely strong late game; this is where their team fighting will be tested, but it could quickly open up the series.

Prediction: Team Solo Mid Victory. After their streak of formidable performances during Week 5 and having the addition week break between the NA LCS competition weeks I think TSM are going to come back even stronger, because of this I think they’ll only run into a few issues against CLG but those issues won’t stop them from coming out on top.

FlyQuest vs. Team Envy NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 6
Match #3: FlyQuest NA LCS 2017 - Logo FlyQuest vs. Team Logo Envy NA LCS 2017 Team Envy

March 4th, 12:00 PM PST/ 03:00 PM EST/ 21:00 CET

FlyQuest are pushing ever so close to the top of the NA LCS ladder. They may be sitting in 4 position at the moment but 3rd is only a single win away and the top position begin to close in. Team Envyus are on the opposite side of things, the bottom of the ladder has become familiar to them, if they’re going to push forward they need to start now. Can they pull it off? Make sure you catch the games when they go live on Saturday, March 4th, to find out!

FlyQuest NA LCS 2017 - LogoFlyQuest – FLY have been looking weaker since the end of week 4, their performances have been more lackluster and they’ve been unable to take many victories. Their consistency definitely took a hit and if they’re looking to climb back up the ladder they’re going to need to bring those stronger performances back.

Team Logo Envy NA LCS 2017Team Envy – NV are sitting at the bottom of the NA LCS ladder and they’re still quite a bit away from climbing an additional position. They’re running out of options as we weeks progress so some risks being taken would be understandable, they’re already at the bottom so there’s not much for them to lose.

FlyQuest appear to be at quite an advantage here. They’ve taken significantly more series victories and have a much better track record when it comes to their match history and performances during individual games. Since the start of the season they’ve shown great potential but now they’re falling. This could be a great opportunity for NV, if they’re willing to take a risk. Early movements and pressure could quickly build them a lead and a tempo advantage. This can be used to control the map whilst looking for strong engagements. Quick engagements around the middle stages of the game could propel them ahead. Their biggest problem is going to be the adaptions that FLY could quickly make, they’re formidably quick and are difficult to work around, it’s not impossible though.

Prediction: FlyQuest Victory. FlyQuest have already proven that they’re able to compete against the top teams in the region, even if they’ve been underperforming recently I believe they’ll still be able to take this series and come out on top with relatively clean performances.

Phoenix1 vs. Team Dignitas NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 6
Match #4: Team Logo Phoenix1 NA LCS 2017 Phoenix1 vs. Team Logo Dignitas NA LCS 2017 Team Dignitas

March 4th, 03:00 PM PST/ 06:00 PM EST/ 24:00 CET

At the start of the split Team Dignitas were a team to watch, they were putting on strong performances and quickly climbed to a fairly high position on the ladder. As weeks progressed they declined a great deal, losing more often than they were able to win. They’re not stuck in 8th place, but only a few performances are stopping them from 5th, creeping up behind P1. Can P1 hold them off and close their own gap to 2nd place? Tune into the games on Saturday, March 4th, to find out!

Team Logo Phoenix1 NA LCS 2017Phoenix 1 – P1 have put on relatively strong performances, they were recently able to come out on top of a series against Cloud 9, who still hold the 1st position on the ladder. This is contrasted by a large portion of their other recent performances though, their consistency seems to be off but if they managed to improve it over the short break they could definitely become a top 3 contender later in the split.

Team Dignitas Logo NA LCS 2017Team Dignitas – They started off so well, even against the teams that are now placed by the top of the ladder were having trouble facing off against Team Dignitas. Cloud 9 lost their 1st game of the split against this team but since week 3 they’ve just not been able to make an impact. If they play with more confidence I think they’ll become an issue for all competing teams once again.

Phoenix 1 are definitely at an advantage here, they’re sitting with a stronger individual game score and are sitting with a reflection of DIG’s series score. P1 are sitting comfortable in 3rd place with a 6:4 series score whereas Team Dignitas are roughing it up by the bottom of the ladder with a 4:6 series score. If Team Dignitas want to look to climb they’re going to need to play more consistently, improve their series adaptions and will need to look for more confident engagements. Even if they look to take a few skirmishes in the earlier stages of the game they’re going to need to make sure they’re reacting more quickly than their opponents. If they can stay on top of the tempo they could look to take map control, this will leave P1 taking risks around the middle and later stages of the game. This is what DIG can capitalise on, forcing engagements on an unsuspecting team would give DIG a huge advantage and could quickly open up the series for them. Will P1 go down that easily though?

Prediction: Phoenix 1 Victory. Phoenix 1 has had stronger performances throughout the split. During their last encounter P1 actually lost to Team Dignitas, but with how the weeks have progressed and with the improvements that P1 have shown I think they’ll get some revenge and take this series, equalising their head to head score.

NA LCS Spring Split Week 6 – Day 1:

Immortals vs. Team Liquid NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 6
Match #1: Team Logo Immortals NA LCS 2017 Immortals vs. Team Logo Liquid NA LCS 2017 Team Liquid

March 3rd, 03:00 PM PST/ 06:00 PM EST/ 24:00 CET

After taking contesting their series against Counter Logic Gaming, Immortals are looking like a fairly formidable team. Their strengths are growing and their weaknesses are fading, can team Liquid handle it? Team Liquid are currently sitting at the lower end of the ladder, with a week’s break have the made the necessary improvements? Tune into the games on Friday, March 3rd to find out!

Team Logo Immortals NA LCS 2017Immortals – IMT have already made a few improvements and that’s been showing in their recent performances. They recently went up against Counter Logic Gaming and although the odds were close IMT managed to show a few of their improvements before they fell. They’re slowly scaling the ladder but challenges are keeping them down, with more waiting.

Team Logo Liquid NA LCS 2017Team Liquid – TL are definitely in a rough position, they’re by the bottom of the ladder and they’ve been unable to make much of a push. After the small break we can hope they’ve looked over their performances and have made the necessary improvements, otherwise they could be in trouble as the week’s progress.

Immortals definitely look to be at an advantage here, they’ve had stronger performances recently and also sit much more comfortably on the ladder. They’ve shown quite a bit of adaption, which will assist them throughout the series and they’ve also been able to have an impact recently. Team Liquid is in a significantly worse position, their recent performances haven’t been inherently bad but they’ve been unable to make a necessary impact. With Immortals having a weaker early game, in comparison to their performances during the other stages, TL is going to want to use their jungler to open up the map. Pressuring the lanes and creating engagements with superior vision could create great opportunities for them to take objective control and create a slower pace, during which they’re less likely to make mistakes.

Prediction: Immortals Victory. Immortals are in a more comfortable position; they play with more confidence and have already shown that their strengths are more formidable. I think Team Liquid will put up a fight but with how well IMT have been performing I think they’ll take the series with some degree of comfort.

Phoenix1 vs. Counter Logic Gaming NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 6
Match #2: Team Logo Phoenix1 NA LCS 2017 Phoenix1 vs. Team Logo CLG NA LCS 2017 Counter Logic Gaming

March 3rd, 06:00 PM PST/ 09:00 PM EST/ 03:00 CET (next day)

Phoenix 1 had an extremely promising week 5, they were able to come out on top of both Team Envyus and Cloud 9. Having taken down Cloud9, Phoenix 1 must be radiating confidence, hopefully this’ll show in their performance as they’re now facing off against, the well-known and often formidable, Counter Logic Gaming. Can Phoenix 1 continue their streak? Tune into the games on Friday, March 3rd, to find out!

Team Logo Phoenix1 NA LCS 2017Phoenix 1 – After a set of fantastic performances, along with taking down the number 1 North American team, Phoenix 1 must feel comfortable in their position. They’ve made such an impact recently and it all happened after they made a few minor adjustments. Hopefully they can continue this feat of strength and make a push up the ladder.

Team Logo CLG NA LCS 2017Counter Logic Gaming – During week 5, CLG have managed to put on a streak of strong performances. They managed to take down both Immortals and Team Liquid with some degree of comfort. The series may have been contest but the perseverance of CLG came shining through.  Even when challenged they stayed calm and confident, leading them to their victories.

Although the scores between Counter Logic Gaming and Phoenix 1 are fairly close, Phoenix 1 is likely to be at an advantage here. Looking through their match histories you can see that Phoenix 1’s performances are on an incline, they’re making subtle improvements which are giving them an edge over their opponents.  Counter Logic Gaming are going to want to play for the middle and later stages of the game, where their shot calling and team fighting can carry them into an advantage. They’re going to want to find strong vision locations, preferably around objectives and close to their opponent’s jungle, because this will give them information needed to create advantages engagements, these fights could quickly carry them into a lead and give them the opportunities needed to push.

Prediction: Phoenix 1 Victory. Phoenix 1 has had a set of phenomenal matches recently, taking down Cloud 9 is a big step forward and having done it in a clean series is even more astounding. If they can maintain this level of play I expect them to push through this series with few issues.
