While the Counter Logic Gaming players are the clear favourites for their duel with Team Envy the showdown between Clout9 and Team Dignitas on Summoner’s Rift will be much closer. Both teams can hold out surprises and are able to defeat every opponent on a good day. The new jungler of CLG, OmarGod, was able to integrate into his new team and fill in the big shoes left behind by Dardoch and Xmithie. Cloud9 will have to move up a gear to replicate their second place finish of the Spring Split 2017.

Preview and Predictions | NA LCS Summer Quarter-Finals

Start Time: August 19, 12:00 PM PDT / 03:00 PM EDT / 21:00 CEST

There are only a few statistics that separate these two competing teams. Team Dignitas managed to claw their way into 5th place during the NA LCS Summer Split and they managed to take a significant amount of victories. They’ve had a hard time against Cloud 9 in the past though and they’re going to need to push past them here if they want to proceed. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Saturday, August 19th, to find out!

Team Dignitas Logo NA LCS 2017Team Dignitas – DIG managed to have quite a significant impact on the ladder during the Summer Split and for a while they were proving to be an extremely challenging team to overcome. They were sticking around the top of the ladder for quite some time but were unable to keep up. They’ve had a hard time against C9 in the past but to be the best they’re going to need to push on through.

Team Logo Cloud9 NA LCS 2017Cloud9 – C9 look more promising now, they ran into quite a few issues over the course of the Summer Split and they were subject to some difficult defeats. They managed to climb into a formidable position before we reached the end of the Summer Split and things are definitely looking up for them now.

Cloud9 appears to be at an advantage here, but it’s unlikely to be significant. C9 have managed to take down Team Dignitas twice before, they’re sitting on top of the head to head between the 2 competing teams but have actually taken fewer individual game victories. Team Dignitas have shown quite a lot of diversity and are able to adapt quickly to a lot of other teams, if they can get a lead on Cloud 9 they’re going to put on a show. C9 may have taken fewer individual game victories but a more important note is how they’ve taken more series victories whilst taking fewer losses. They’re sitting with 5 fewer losses in comparison to Team Dignitas and will be looking to fatigue them as the series progresses.

Prediction: Cloud 9 Victory. Cloud 9 are definitely at an advantage here, even if it’s not significant having an advantage at this level of play can quickly come to light. C9 is in control of the head to head record between these 2 teams with a 2:0 score and they’ve also shown more obvious potential during the course of the Summer Split. I think this potential is going to shine through as C9 work their way on top of the series.

Start Time: August 20, 12:00 PM PDT / 03:00 PM EDT / 21:00 CEST

Counter Logic Gaming took an extremely formidable position on the ladder and have proven themselves to be a top 3 team in the region. It was a close call and they’ll still be out to prove themselves more as we head into the playoffs. Team Envyus ended the Summer Split in 6th place and are the underdogs here, but we’ve seen great things from underdogs before. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Sunday, August 20th, to find out!

Team Logo CLG NA LCS 2017Counter Logic Gaming – CLG were constantly pushing for a top position on the ladder and they’ve been performing fairly consistently. They’re still having a few issues and some other teams caught on to their strategies but they’re a very adaptive and difficult team to take down. Their positioning has needed a little work but as we head into the playoffs I’m sure every individual player will be on top form.

Team Logo Envy NA LCS 2017Team Envyus – NV certainly have a lot to prove as they head into the Summer playoffs. They ended the Summer Split in 6th place and were looking underwhelming at times. Their macro management has seen huge improvements and their early pressures have definitely stepped up but will it be enough to take down the teams who ended at the top?

Counter Logic Gaming appear to be at an advantage here, they were able to end the Summer Split in a much more formidable and stable position whereas Team Envyus only just scraped their way into the Summer Playoffs. Counter Logic Gaming sit with an exciting 12:6 series score and hold onto 3rd place which is leaps ahead of the 8:10 and 6th place Team Envyus. NV is going to need to crack down on earlier vision control, objective control and their lanes. They’re going to need to aim for an equal gold score as they head into the middle stages of the game, this will open up multiple strategies that could assist them, playing with tempo could be a good work around against CLG.

Prediction: Counter Logic Gaming Victory. CLG have managed to push into a stronger position on the Summer Split ladder and they’ve taken much more confident scores. Their performances have been stronger and more reliable and they’re going to be difficult for any competing team to overcome. Because of their proven greater strength on top of their improved consistency I’ll be looking for CLG to come out on top of the series.
