Head to Head record in regular season: Cloud9  1 : 1 Team SoloMid

Logo of LCS NA Team TSMFavored and heavily-armed, Team SoloMid is looking stronger than ever going into this season’s finals as they faced off against Sneaky and the rest of Cloud9.

Team SoloMid easily defeated Team Impulse in a best-of-five semifinal series. Although they were defeated in the first game, Team SoloMid managed to regain their composure and sweep the next 3 games. The biggest factor was Team Impulse’s inconsistent pick/ban phase as they immediately changed their team composition and strategy in the next 2 games of the series.

Logo of LCS NA Team Cloud9On the other hand, Cloud9 had a hard time against Team Liquid as they were down 2 games but managed to pull the unexpected and sweep the remaining 3 games. The inconsistency of Cloud9 was pretty much everywhere in the first two games of the series.

Prediction: I knew from the very start that these two teams will make it all the way into the finale. Both have unique differences but share quite a few similarities.

Both teams have a great bottom lane tandem. Team SoloMid has WildTurtle and LustBoy while Cloud9 has Sneaky and LemonNation. Both teams has a veteran top laner, Dyrus in Team SoloMid and Balls in Cloud9.

Although they both have incredible mid laners, Hai of Cloud9 has been performing poorly this season and has not shown improvement since then but his shotcalling is remarkable as this greatly help his team secure victories. Bjergsen has been the best mid laner this season, combined with the assistance of Santorin; he will surely snowball if he gets a few early kills.

I want Cloud9 to win this one as they are my favorite team in North America but we all know that Team SoloMid has been very consistent since the start of the season. Meteos should be ready to anticipate every move of Santorin if he wants to shut down his map presence and BJergsen at the same time. Hai can surely handle the middle lane on his own provided that Santorin is stopped on his tracks by Meteos. An interesting matchup would be the bottom lane as both their AD carries and supports are one of the best tandems in North America.

Cloud9 should take away LeBlanc and Ahri from Bjergsen and force him into new champions such as Urgot (Bjergsen has a 1-1 record when using Urgot this playoffs). Cloud9 has a better record when playing standard lanes and they should opt for that whenever necessary. Although Team SoloMid has better individual skills than Cloud9, they should not be very confident as Cloud9 is still a high-caliber team on its own.

As much as I would like Cloud9 to win this one, I much say that Team SoloMid got this series. In terms of everything that was shown, Team SoloMid has the advantage. Cloud9 might take a few games away but Team SoloMid will surely walk away with a victory on the series.
