Team SoloMid vs. Phoenix1 NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 9
Match #1A: Team Logo TSM NA LCS 2017 Team SoloMid vs. Team Logo Phoenix1 NA LCS 2017 Phoenix1

March 26th, 12:00 PM PDT/ 03:00 PM EDT/ 21:00 CEST

This is certainly going to be an exciting series, as of writing this TSM still sit at the top of the ladder and they definitely don’t want that to falter. Phoenix 1 have made a phenomenal push in recent weeks and have taken down just about every opponent that’s stepped in their way. P1 have been performing like a top team in the region and that just makes this series generate more fear for TSM and their fans. Can TSM hold out for this final day? Tune into the series on Sunday, March 26th, to find out!

Team Logo TSM NA LCS 2017Team Solo Mid – TSM haven’t dropped a series in weeks, they’ve only appear to be more stable as the weeks have progressed into this final match. This series is going to come with challenges but TSM have shown that they’ve got this phenomenal ability to adapt throughout games and series’ because of this I think they’ll be quite comfortable coming into this.

Team Logo Phoenix1 NA LCS 2017Phoenix 1 – P1 have been on a dominating streak, that doesn’t mean they’ve had no issues though. Since week 6 they’ve been on a phenomenal level and have taken down an array of teams in all positions on the ladder. They’ve taken down top teams already, could they be adding another one to their list?

Team Solo Mid appear to be at a slight advantage for this series, not only because they’re holding onto a stronger series and individual game score but because they’ve also been performing on a consistent and strong level in which they’ve been damn near impossible to defeat in recent weeks. Phoenix 1 could be up for the challenge though; their 26:11 individual game score sits rather close to the 28:14 of Team Solo Mid. This series might have a few conclusive mistakes but which team will make them? Both teams have been formidable, both teams have been improving. P1 are going to want to try and play on the weaker early decision making from TSM; TSM are going to want to try and play around the middle stages of the game with team fighting and tempo. I expect to see some phenomenal fights and strategies throughout this series so keep your eyes peeled!

Prediction: Team Solo Mid Victory. This is the final day of the final week. With the playoffs coming up and a lot being rewarded for the team that comes in 1st place I think TSM are going to pump out everything they’ve got for this series; in doing so I think we’re going to see some of their best performances of the split.

FlyQuest vs. Team Liquid NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 9
Match #2A: FlyQuest NA LCS 2017 - Logo FlyQuest vs. Team Logo Liquid NA LCS 2017 Team Liquid

March 26th, 03:00 PM PDT/ 06:00 PM EDT/ 24:00 CEST

FlyQuest have been having a difficult time, they were so close to being the team at the top of the ladder but once they lost their footing they fell in spectacular fashion. Team Liquid never even managed to make the climb though! TL managed to take a victory in recent weeks but this series could be the start of FLY claiming the same thing. Can FLY rise again, during the last week? Tune into the series on Sunday, March 26th, to find out!

FlyQuest NA LCS 2017 - LogoFlyQuest – It’s been a while since we saw FLY performing on their phenomenal level. They were once an extremely feared team, they were conquering and rising up the ladder quickly but once they lost morale and confidence they quickly fell apart. With little to lose now and the end of the final week upon us I think we could look at that confident FLY once more!

Team Logo Liquid NA LCS 2017Team Liquid – TL are sitting by the bottom of the ladder and it doesn’t look like they’ve got much going for them,  but there’s not much stopping them from climbing just a little bit more before the split ends. A lot of teams are packed tightly into the ladder, including TL, and just a few shifts in victories could impact it greatly!

FlyQuest look to be at a minor advantage here, they’ve been having trouble for quite some time now but the same can be said for TL. Fly still have a stronger series score and individual game score in comparison to TL and their potential has looked to be way beyond Team Liquids. If FLY can gain some momentum they could look to take this series swiftly, but that’ll require great confidence and precision. Team Liquid could quite easily deny FLY early access to that moment with extended vision and a few aggressive rotations or moves of their own! TL could make a final statement before the end of the split but they’ll need to create a lot of opportunities, drafting for team fighting could lead them into regular engagements where they’ll find a lead and destroy the morale of FLY. FLY will need to tread carefully, building a lead could be difficult but as long as they take things slowly their shot calling could carry them.

Prediction: FlyQuest Victory. Seeing as it’s the final day of performances I think FLY are going to feel less pressured to perform, leading them to perform with more confidence. Their confidence got knocked previously and it greatly affected their performances, without that factor here I think they’ll take this series and show us some of their older strength.

Team Dignitas vs. Immortals NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 9
Match #1B: Team Logo Dignitas NA LCS 2017 Team Dignitas vs. Team Logo Immortals NA LCS 2017 Immortals

March 26th, 12:00 PM PDT/ 03:00 PM EDT/ 21:00 CEST

Team Dignitas have actually been looking stronger than usual in recent weeks, they may have lost their series to Cloud 9 earlier in the week but that shouldn’t stop them from trying to make a few final impacts on the ladder. There are a lot of teams clustered around the middle of the ladder and just a few games could shake things up, Immortals included. Can IMT hold out and make a break for safety? Tune into the series when it goes live on Sunday, March 26th, to find out!

Team Dignitas Logo NA LCS 2017Team Dignitas – DIG have overcome many obstacles to get into a stronger position on the ladder, most of this was achieved in the few weeks leading up to this moment. They’ve made a few fantastic improvements which have made them performing more consistently and they’ve definitely shown more potential. Will it be enough to keep IMT under wraps though?

Team Logo Immortals NA LCS 2017Immortals – IMT have been able to take down both C9 and FLY in recent weeks, they were also able to contest their series against Team Solo Mid during their performances in week 6. They’ve shown that they’ve got the potential to be and beat these top performing teams but they need those strengths to shine now, during their last performance of this stage of the split.

Team Dignitas look to be at an advantage here but it’s difficult to see just how much of an advantage it is. In recent weeks Team Dignitas have managed to take down a lot of the teams that are sitting close to the bottom of the ladder, along with Counter Logic Gaming who’re close to the top, but IMT have shown great potential against those teams who’re all by the top. If IMT can performing on a similar skill level to when they took down C9 I think they’ll be at an advantage during this series, but DIG have still got a lot to show. DIG still hold onto a stronger position along with a better individual game score but if they play recklessly this could quickly dissipate, and during their last series of the split that could be very upsetting!

Prediction: Immortals Victory. Even though Immortals are slightly behind on the ladder their individual game score is extremely close to that of Team Dignitas. IMT have also had stronger performances against the stronger teams on the ladder, because of this I think they’ll pump out stronger performances during this series and find a way to come out on top.

Counter Logic Gaming CLG vs. Team Envy NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 9
Match #2B: Team Logo CLG NA LCS 2017 Counter Logic Gaming vs. Team Logo Envy NA LCS 2017 Team Envy

March 26th, 03:00 PM PDT/ 06:00 PM EDT/ 24:00 CEST

Team Envyus are still by the bottom of the ladder but depending on how things are panning out they could look to make 1 final push, it might be useless to them now though. This is the last series of the split, at least for the round-robin section of the split, and if CLG manage to find their footing early it could spell a quick loss for Team Envyus. Can NV hold back CLG? Tune into the series when it goes live on Sunday, March 26th, to find out!

Team Logo CLG NA LCS 2017Counter Logic Gaming – CLG lost to Team Dignitas during week 7 and it came as a surprise, but since then DIG have shown that they’re stronger than people assumed. This originally made CLG look significantly weaker but if we’ve learned anything from their more recent performances it’s that they mean business and they’re looking at those higher positions.

Team Logo Envy NA LCS 2017Team Envyus – There might not be much that Team Envyus can do at this point but they can be extremely disruptive during this series with a possibility at forcing Team Liquid’s position on the ladder. It’s going to take some phenomenal strategies and execution but underestimating NV would be a grave mistake.

Counter Logic Gaming look to be at quite a clear advantage here. They’re holding onto 4th place on the ladder with a 9:7 series score, also keeping up a 20:19 individual game score; in comparison to NV’s 3:13 series score and 12:27 individual game score CLG is definitely looking like the favoured team. CLG are going to need to watch for any confident movements in the earlier stages of the game and might want to build safe lines of vision close to their lanes; using their jungler to pressure the map could build them great momentum to siege and gain control of objectives, giving them advantages around the middle and later stages of the game. Team Envyus are going to be challenged every step of the way but all it takes is a few openings, pressuring early on and using their jungler relentlessly could give them a few advantages; this could very quickly give them a lead around the middle stages of the game. They’ll then need to rely on their shot calling and macro management, which could be an issue.

Prediction: Counter Logic Gaming Victory. CLG have had stronger performances across the board, for the entirety of the split CLG have been performing on a higher level in comparison to Team Envyus and because of this I think they have the potential to take this series with comfort. There might be a few challenges but ultimately I expect to see CLG come out on top.

NA LCS Spring Split Week 9 – Day 2:

Immortals vs. Counter Logic Gaming CLG NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 9
Match #1A: Team Logo Immortals NA LCS 2017 Immortals vs. Team Logo CLG NA LCS 2017 Counter Logic Gaming

March 25th, 12:00 PM PDT/ 03:00 PM EDT/ 20:00 CEST

This is likely to be a fairly close series, only a few games separate these 2 performing teams on the ladder and it looks like circumstance favoured CLG for climbing. CLG sit above IMT on the ladder but if IMT can take hold of this series they could really open up their options for a last ditch effort at pushing. Can IMT pull off a last minute climb, or will CLG hold them back? Tune into the series when it goes live on Saturday, March 25th, to find out!

Team Logo Immortals NA LCS 2017Immortals – IMT have taken down the likes of C9 and FLY in recent weeks. They’re definitely performing on a similar level to teams close to the top of the ladder but their inconsistent performance levels have definitely held them back. They’re either performing good, which often hasn’t been good enough, or they’re performing great and have been able to cause issues for top teams. For this series they’re definitely going to want to aim for greatness.

Team Logo CLG NA LCS 2017Counter Logic Gaming – CLG have also managed to come out on top of both FLY and C9 in the recent performance weeks. They’ve had a similar weakness to IMT though, their performances haven’t always been on that top level and it’s been holding them back. If they can perform on their best level for this series we’re going to be in for one hell of a series.

Counter Logic Gaming look to be at a very slight advantage here, and that advantage could very quickly close if IMT are on their top performance level. Counter Logic Gaming and Immortals have often had similar issues, if they’re having these issues against each other than we could be looking at one of the most equal levelled series of the entire split. CLG sit slightly above IMT on the ladder and their series scores look to be quite different but if we make a comparison to their individual game score these teams are nearly tied. CLG sit with a 20:19 individual game score and IMT sit just behind them with a 19:21. If CLG make any minor mistakes and IMT can capitalise, the series could quickly be lost for them; but the same goes for IMT!

Prediction: Counter Logic Gaming Victory. IMT might be making steps forward to improve but we’re in the final week of performances now. With CLG sitting ahead in terms of both series score and individual game score, along with being ahead on the ladder, I’m inclined to think they’ll come out on top of this series after making fewer mistakes than IMT. It’s going to be close though, so make sure you catch the series!

Cloud9 vs. Phoenix1 NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 9
Match #2A: Team Logo Cloud9 NA LCS 2017 Cloud9 vs. Team Logo Phoenix1 NA LCS 2017 Phoenix1

March 25th, 03:00 PM PDT/ 06:00 PM EDT/ 23:00 CEST

Phoenix1 have been on a phenomenal performance streak, they’ve been taking games across the board. For the past few weeks they’ve gone undefeated and if they can take this series away from C9 only a single series separates them from. With 2nd place on the ladder under possible contention C9 are going to need to put on a set of fantastic performances, luckily for them it’d be after a fantastic morale boost after taking down DIG in a clean series. Can C9 hold onto 2nd place, or will P1 make a push for it? Tune into the series when it goes live on Saturday, March 25th, to find out!

Team Logo Cloud9 NA LCS 2017Cloud 9 – C9 have been underperforming for a while now, they’ve had their series’ contested by teams that are placed significantly below them on the ladder. C9 were previously appearing to be an undefeated powerhouse team but things slipped away from them, after taking down DIG in a clean series on Day 1, will they continue to perform and hold onto their position?

Team Logo Phoenix1 NA LCS 2017Phoenix 1 – P1 have made a fantastic push in the last few weeks and now they’re sitting by the top of the ladder with just a few victories separating them from Cloud9. If they can take hold of this series they open up a few options, options they’ll want to take a hold of as this is the final week for them to perform.

Even though Cloud9 are in a higher position on the ladder, and have just managed to put on strong performances against DIG, I think Phoenix 1 is at a slight advantage here. They’ve had stronger performances for the past few weeks and if they continue to put on performances at a similar level then C9 will definitely be in trouble. Cloud9 are going to want to try to create room in the earlier stages of the game, I think their strategies are more refined than the ones of P1 and this could give them great advantages heading into the middle and later stages of the game. P1 are going to want to look to push with some aggression during the earlier and middle stages of the game; forcing C9 into fights could give P1 a lot of time and room to create and expand on a lead, which will set them up for later in the games.

Prediction: Cloud 9 Victory. Even though P1 look promising and have put on fantastic performances recently I think Cloud9 are finding their stride again. With this being the final week of performances I expect C9 to put on their strongest performances. I have no doubt the series will be close and both teams will be pushed to their limits but I expect C9 to perform better under the pressure.

Team Liquid vs. Team SoloMid NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 9
Match #1B: Team Logo Liquid NA LCS 2017 Team Liquid vs. Team Logo TSM NA LCS 2017 Team SoloMid

March 25th, 12:00 PM PDT/ 03:00 PM EDT/ 20:00 CEST

Team Liquid has been having a very hard time in the recent weeks but they’ve often been pinned against teams sitting by the top of the standings. Well, this is no change for them! Team Solo Mid are sitting at the top of the ladder and dropping a series now could mean losing their top place. They’re going to come into this series with great confidence but that could also be their downfall, will TL find opportunities to rise? Tune into the series when it goes live on Saturday, March 25th, to find out!

Team Logo Liquid NA LCS 2017Team Liquid – TL have had issues in recent weeks, being pinned against teams at the top of the ladder has left them unsatisfied with their single victory over NV in recent weeks. But TL has been underperforming against those top teams! They’re going to need to apply some small improvements if they want to take down the top team, but it’s still very possible for them to do it.

Team Logo TSM NA LCS 2017Team Solo Mid – TSM are sitting by the top of the ladder and they’re there for a good reason. In recent weeks TSM has gone undefeated, they’ve taken the victory in every series they’ve performed in recently and it’s pushed them into a fantastic position, a fantastic position that could quickly crumble if they make any mistakes in this series.

Team Solo Mid appears to be at quite a significant advantage for this series. They’re sitting at the top of the ladder with a staggering 14:2 series score which is reflected by their individual game score which sits at 28:14. Team Liquid are by the bottom of the ladder and their series and individual game scores barely compare, with a 4:12 series score and a 14:27 individual game score. There appears to be quite a large gap between these 2 teams and the ladder reflects this! TL are going to need to play with a lot of patience and care, keeping a close eye on vision and constantly playing with available information. Taking a few risks could reward them greatly but it could be at the cost of the series if things go wrong.

Prediction: Team Solo Mid Victory. These performing teams are at opposite ends of the ladder and it’s like that for a good reason. Team Solo Mid might have appeared to be slightly inconsistent in earlier weeks but their adaptions have made up for it, they might not take regular clean series victories but they always manage to come out on top, I expect this series to be no different for them.

Echo Fox vs. Team Envy NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 9
Match #2B: Team Logo Echo Fox NA LCS 2017 Echo Fox vs. Team Logo Envy NA LCS 2017 Team Envy

March 25th, 03:00 PM PDT/ 06:00 PM EDT/ 23:00 CEST

Both of these teams are surprisingly close on the ladder, even though Team Envyus are sitting in 10th place whereas Echo Fox are holding onto 8th. 2 series victories separate these performing teams and if we take a look at their individual game score it’s even closer. Can Team Envyus impact the ladder in their final moments? Tune into the series when it goes live on Saturday, March 25th, to find out!

Team Logo Unicorns of Love EU LCS 2017Echo Fox – FOX have been unable to take hold of a series victory since week 5, they’ve got many weeks without a victory now and it’s definitely change the dynamic of the ladder for them. When facing off against Team Envyus they’re going to need to play carefully, surprises have caught out teams higher on the ladder and FOX might not be equipped to deal with it!

Team Logo Envy NA LCS 2017Team Envyus – NV have definitely made improvements in the last few weeks, they went from being a counter out team to being a team that’s able to contest a series against every team they’re placed against. In recent weeks they gave both Cloud 9 and TSM a run for their money, contesting both series’ and striking fear into other performing teams.

Echo Fox might appear to have an advantage because of their ladder position and their superior statistics but with Team Envyus performing on a better level in recent weeks I believe they could be in the more advantageous position. Team Envyus are currently behind by 2 series victories but their individual game score is only a single game victory behind that of FOX’s. If Team Envyus can gain some control over the map then FOX might quickly fall into trouble. Echo Fox are going to want to play around with early aggression, capitalising on open opportunities, this could quickly push NV into a position of desperate reaction where they’ll take unnecessary fights and fall into a deficit. NV are going to want to play the long game, waiting patiently for their chance to strike. Team Envyus have shown more improvement in recent weeks than Echo Fox has and this could push them just slightly ahead in the series.

Prediction: Team Envyus Victory. With Echo Fox underperforming, in comparison to their regular performance level, in the recent weeks I think Team Envyus are in a more advantageous position here. Because of this they’ll be more confident and make better decision, this will help them avoid mistakes which have often cost them games. With this added consistency they look to be the stronger team and I think this series could reflect that!

NA LCS Spring Split Week 9 – Day 1:

Cloud9 vs. Team Dignitas NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 9
Match #1: Team Logo Cloud9 NA LCS 2017 Cloud9 vs. Team Logo Dignitas NA LCS 2017 Team Dignitas

March 24th, 03:00 PM PDT/ 06:00 PM EDT/ 23:00 CET

Cloud 9 have been declining in the most recent weeks, they quickly went from being an undefeated team to having all of their series’ contested. Not only were they being contested but teams were taking series victories away from them! Team Dignitas have been on a fantastic streak recently, they’ve been taking all of their series victories and have pushed up the ladder significantly, opening up the possibility to contest 4th position on the ladder! Can they do it? Tune into the series when it goes live on Friday, March 24th, to find out!

Team Logo Cloud9 NA LCS 2017Cloud 9 – C9 were undefeated, they were a challenge for every team, and they were storming their way through the split. But just a few weeks ago they started to run into issues, their own performances were looking slightly weaker and other teams were quickly improving. With only a small period of time left, will C9 be able to hold onto 2nd place?

Team Dignitas Logo NA LCS 2017Team Dignitas – Team Dignitas were having consistency issues in the earlier weeks of the NA LCS but in the most recent weeks their performances have been a challenge. The opponents of DIG have fallen short because DIG has been more consistent, more powerful and their potential is booming. Can they take down the 2nd place team though?

Cloud 9 would appear to be at an advantage here, even though they’ve not had the most fantastic performances in the most recent weeks they’re holding onto their 2nd place position. They’ve still been contesting the series’ they’ve been losing and they’ve been coming out on top of the weaker performing teams on the ladder. Team Dignitas is definitely going to bring some mischief and Cloud 9 could stumble so they’re going to need to build early vision and play heavily around middle and late game objective strategy. Patience will be very key during this game, for DIG it’ll be around their possible opportunities and engagements. They’ll want to pick their fights carefully and make sure they’ve got necessary sight and positioning, this’ll give them advantages around the middle stages of the game if C9 are playing with aggression.

Prediction: Cloud 9 Victory. C9 have had a stumble and they could run into a few issues during this series, but with their 2nd place position on the line and the final weeks upon us I think C9 are going to step up and show us why they were a top team for so long.

FlyQuest vs. Echo Fox NA LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 9
Match #2: FlyQuest NA LCS 2017 - Logo Fly Quest vs. Team Logo Echo Fox NA LCS 2017 Echo Fox

March 24th, 06:00 PM PDT/ 09:00 PM EDT/ 02:00 CET (next day)

With 5 series losses in a row, FlyQuest are looking a bit worn out now. They had a fantastic start to the split but as other teams made improvements and caught up to them they’ve been unable to push and stay ahead. Echo Fox may be in a lower position on the ladder but they have the potential to continue the issues for FlyQuest. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Friday, March 24th, to find out!

FlyQuest NA LCS 2017 - LogoFlyQuest – This is a great opportunity for FlyQuest. They’ve recently fallen behind Team Dignitas on the ladder and if they can take this series they’ll open up an opportunity to climb back into 5th position instead of sitting on the lower end of the ladder. It might be a challenge, but at least they’re against opponents who’ve also had recent troubles.

Team Logo Unicorns of Love EU LCS 2017Echo Fox – FOX have had troubles of their own in recent weeks, they’re currently sitting in 8th place on the ladder and they’ll need to take a few series victories to make any improvements to their standings. There’s a lot on the line for them during this series, they’re in a difficult position on the ladder and will need to go undefeated for the final push in the split if they want to create some safety.

FlyQuest would appear to be at a bit of an advantage here, even though they’ve been having issues recently they’ve had stronger overall performances this split in comparison to Echo Fox and that’s why they’re in a stronger position on the ladder. FLY haven’t been able to take a series victory for a few weeks now, similar to FOX, but with 5th place on the ladder being a possibility for them I think they’re going to try to revert to their previous strength to try and grasp the better position. Echo Fox are in a tough position on the ladder, a single series victory won’t change much for them but the alleviated pressure could give them the confidence to make aggressive early movements on the rift and could give them some fantastic openings to create a lead of advantages; this could give them great possibilities around the middle stages of the game! They’ll need to watch vision closely though, especially around those earlier contested objectives!

Prediction: FlyQuest Victory. FLY have had stronger overall performances this split and even though they’ve been having a hard time in the more recent weeks I think their potential surpasses that of FOX. Echo Fox have had a hard time for the entirety of the split and because of their issues I think FLY will push ahead and once again prove to us that they can win.
