We laughed, sweated, trembled and shed some tears – but the quarterfinals are done and with the semifinals of the NA LCS playoffs 2017 the starting field has been narrowed down to only four participants. Thereby we witnessed a lot of great moments, many upsets and exciting duels on Summoner’s Rift. Certainly predictable – eventually there is plenty on the line for the best teams of each region, an attendance at the 2017 Mid-Season Invitational in Brazil is the main goal alongside the big prize pool. The North American LCS still runs in accordance with Riot Games’ script, yet again the tactical brilliant shotcaller Hai from the FlyQuest team was able to reverse a 0:2 deficit into a victory for his comrades. On the contrary Phoenix1 had no major problems with their quarterfinal challengers of Team Dignitas and swept their enemies in fascinating style. Even the semifinals will await all League of Legends fans in front of their screens with some exciting duels, Team SoloMid and Cloud9 are for a certainty serious opponents. The final phase of the NA LCS Spring Split 2017 draws to a close, please take a look at the schedule and starting times below to catch all upcoming League of Legends action.

Preview and Predictions | NA LCS Spring Semifinals

Team SoloMid vs. FlyQuest Semifinals NA LCS 2017 Spring Playoffs
Semifinals #2: Team Logo TSM NA LCS 2017 Team SoloMid vs. FlyQuest NA LCS 2017 - Logo FlyQuest

Start Time: April 16th, 12:00 AM PDT/ 03:00 PM EDT/ 08:00 PM BST/ 21:00 CEST

FlyQuest looked fantastic, there was a portion of time where they were severely underperforming and teams managed to figure out their strategy but it looks like things might be picking back up for FLY! They had an unfortunate tumble down the ladder and barely made it into the playoffs but they’ve already taken down CLG and are looking good for this series against Team Solo Mid! Don’t forget to tune into the series when it goes live on Sunday, April 16th, to see who comes out on top!

Team Logo TSM NA LCS 2017Team SoloMid – At the start of the split they struggled quite a bit, their individual game score reflects this as they have quite a few more losses than the team that’s placed below them on the ladder. But once TSM kicked off they were an absolute titan and near impossible to bring down. If TSM can maintain this level of performance they should be quite confident here.

FlyQuest NA LCS 2017 - LogoFlyQuest – FLY definitely hit a rough patch during the split but things are starting to look up for them again. Counter Logic Gaming were the 4th placed team on the ladder and, although it’s not a huge step up from FLY’s position, FLY managed to take them down. If they’re riding the morale momentum they could be looking to play with some confident early aggression, this could quickly catch out TSM.

Team Solo Mid look to be at quite an advantage during this series; they managed to take a staggering 15:3 series score along with a 31:16 individual game score. They held 6 more series victories than FlyQuest but also took 9 more individual games. With FlyQuest’s consistency still being questionable it’s hard to conclude how strong they’re going to perform during this series but if they’re pushing forward from their semi-finals victory we could see some close encounters. Team Solo Mid has definitely shown more consistency though and are likely to perform on their 1st place level. This could cause a lot of issues for FLY if they can’t create pressure in the earlier and middle stages of the game.

Prediction: Team Solo Mid Victory. Team Solo Mid look like a pretty safe choice here. They were performing on a significantly stronger level than FLY for the spring split and have taken a much more commanding position. TSM have proven time and time again that they’re a force to be reckoned with and I think they’ll do it once again during this series.

Cloud9 vs. Phoenix1 Semifinals NA LCS 2017 Spring Playoffs
Semifinals #1: Team Logo Cloud9 NA LCS 2017 Cloud9 vs. Team Logo Phoenix1 NA LCS 2017 Phoenix1

Start Time: April 15th, 12:00 AM PDT/ 03:00 PM EDT/ 08:00 PM BST/ 21:00 CEST

Cloud 9 looked so dominant for so long during the spring split, but it all eventually crashed down and they took loss after loss. It tarnished their position and their match history but they did manage to hold onto a top position on the ladder. They may have only ended a single position over Phoenix1 but they took quite a few more victories. Can they prove their strength or will P1 take them down like they did with DIG? Tune into the series when it goes live on Saturday, April 15th, to find out!

Team Logo Cloud9 NA LCS 2017Cloud 9 – C9 performed recently against Phoenix1 and I think this gives them quite an advantage, along with that they also dominated DIG during the last week of the spring split. These were the lasted performances from C9 and if there’s anything we can take from them it’s that they’re willing to continue proving themselves.

Team Logo Phoenix1 NA LCS 2017Phoenix1 – P1 are definitely going to need to watch out here, they may have been able to dominate DIG and take a clean series off of them during the quarterfinals but the competition only gets fiercer from here. If they didn’t take notes to learn from their loss against C9 during the 9th week of the Spring Split then they’re going to be in for a lot of trouble.

Cloud 9 look to be at an advantage here, even though P1 put on a phenomenal series against Dignitas recently. Cloud 9 has already proven that they can scrape away Dignitas as competition and in their more recent matches they did the same to Phoenix 1. Even if Phoenix1 have made improvements it’s likely that they’re going to run into a significant amount of trouble here and that definitely plays out as a C9 advantage. During week 5 of the Spring Split Phoenix1 were able to take away a clean series from C9, if they can pull off something here they’re going to look extremely formidable, but C9 have been improving and did hold a much better score on the ladder. I think P1 are going to need to pull out some surprises, maybe a few different champions’ picks or more volatile strategies, but they definitely shouldn’t be counted out.

Prediction: Cloud 9 Victory. C9 have come too far now, they definitely had a drop in their performances around the middle of the split but they improved their consistency and strategies. Phoenix1 have made a few improvements but seeing as they lost to C9 just recently without being able to contest really convinces me that C9 are going to come out on top here, I do however expect there to be a lot of excitement and action.
