Preview and Predictions | NA LCS Summer Semi-Finals

Immortals vs. Counter Logic Gaming NA LCS 2017 Summer Split Week 4
Semifinals #1: Team Logo Immortals NA LCS 2017 Immortals vs. Counter Logic Gaming Team Logo CLG NA LCS 2017

Start Time: August 26th, 12:00 PM PDT / 03:00 PM EDT / 21:00 CEST

Counter Logic Gaming had a tough time pushing past the 6th place team from the Summer Split but were ultimately able to come out on top and work their way into the semi-finals. Immortals earned their position by taking a top spot during the Summer Split, they’ve had additional time to prepare for this encounter; can CLG handle them? Tune into the series when it goes live on Saturday, August 26th, to find out!

Team Logo Immortals NA LCS 2017Immortals – Sitting by the top of the ladder during the NA LCS Summer Split, Immortals are looking to push their way into the finals where they’ll hopefully run into Team Solo Mid. Why, you ask? TSM were able to take their top position and have been the biggest challenge for IMT so far, conquering them and taking the title would be the biggest achievement they could ask for.

Team Logo CLG NA LCS 2017Counter Logic Gaming – CLG had a hard time against Team Envyus but are a team that quickly adapt and are able to stay on top of their game. They’re heading into the semi-finals with the hope that they can push past the other competing teams and take the title once more. Their macro management has been formidable but some of their micro managing needs work.

Immortals look to be at an advantage here; they had stronger performances throughout the course of the Summer Split and were able to take a higher position in the standings. They’ve shown as much strength in their adaptions but have also been more consistent. Counter Logic Gaming are going to need to macro their way around Immortals if they want to climb on top of the series, if they’ve made slight improvements to their micro managing and positioning they’re going to keep IMT on their toes for the entirety of the series.

Prediction: Immortals Victory. IMT have been more consistent and that’s going to play a big part in this series, CLG have had difficulty in their recent competitive games and if they’re unable to keep up they’ll fall more quickly than expected. I think CLG will put up a good fight but with the increased strengths of IMT tied in with their consistency I expect IMT to take the win.

Team SoloMid vs. Team Dignitas NA LCS 2017 Summer Split Week 7
Semifinals #2: Team SoloMid Logo - LoL Worlds Team SoloMid vs. Team Dignitas Team Logo Dignitas NA LCS 2017

Start Time: August 27th, 12:00 PM PDT / 03:00 PM EDT / 21:00 CEST

Team Dignitas were able to put on some dominant performances on their way into the semi-finals. They erupted in their series against Cloud 9 and were able to take the victory in a convincing 3:1 series. They’ve shown some development and are now looking to push forward, but can they take down the strongest performing team in the region? TSM are looking to take the crown. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Sunday, August 27th, to find out!

Team Logo TSM NA LCS 2017Team SoloMid – TSM were able to take the top position on the ladder as the Summer Split came to an end but it’s unlikely they were satisfied with their results. They were barely ahead of Immortals and only just managed to take the top spot, they’ll be looking to push through to the finals where they hope to meet IMT; looking to solidify their position as the top team.

Team Dignitas Logo NA LCS 2017Team Dignitas – DIG were in 5th place as the Summer Split came to an end but they’ve already turn on their playoffs buff. They were able to take down Cloud 9 and claw their way into the semi-finals. Taking down a 4th place team can be difficult but it pales in comparison to taking down the top team, does DIG have what it takes?

Team Solo Mid look to be at an advantage, they took the top position as the Summer Split round-robin came to an end and they managed to earn their position in the semi-finals right from the get-go. They were crushing the other competing teams for the majority of the Summer Split and were rarely being contested against. They’ve shown improvement throughout the split that has kept them at the top and they have a history of putting on even stronger performances when in the playoffs. Team Dignitas are going to need to try and create some early pressure, one of TSM’s biggest issues is their emotional state and fatigue when playing in such an important series. If TSM fall behind they could hit some serious issues and DIG have already shown that they’ll close out games as soon as they can.

Prediction: Team Solo Mid Victory. TSM are sitting at the top of the ladder and have had some additional time to make preparations for this series, they’ve got their eyes on the finals and I have no doubt they’re going to be putting on some of their strongest performances of the season. With a lead in consistency and having shown more prowess I expect TSM to take this series and work their way into the finals.
