Week 9 – NA LCS Summer Split 2017

One last ride – Week 9 of the NA LCS Summer Split 2017 marks the last chance for all North American League of Legends teams to have a shot at the final standings of the regular season. The best six teams after this week will qualify for the upcoming Summer Split playoffs and test their strength again in a showdown with the other regional leaders. As usual the top two teams of the North American ladder will receive a bye for the quarter-finals and start their playoff run directly in the semi-finals. This will cause a big advantage because on the one hand you can watch the strategies of you opponents in the quarter-final games, on the other hand you have more time for preparation, strategies and training. Before the last week of the split there are two teams on top of the ladder in the North American LCS: Team SoloMid and the Immortals. While TSM was able to participate in every playoff finals ever in the past the Immortals have a reputation of failing in their playoff games. The top six teams of the ladder are already set in stone but the fight for survival at the lower regions of the standings will be more exciting than ever. In parallel to NA LCS Week 9 you can watch former pro-players at this year’s Return of the Legends tournament. Week 9 of the North American LCS Summer Split 2017 will start on August 4th, so turn in one more time for exciting action on Summoner’s Rift!

Team Logo Phoenix1 NA LCS 2017 Phoenix1 vs. Team SoloMid Team Logo TSM NA LCS 2017

Start Time: August 5, 12:00 PM PDT / 03:00 PM EDT / 21:00 CEST

Phoenix 1 headed into Week 9 of the NA LCS being stuck in a 3 way tie for 8th place. 8th place would give a team some form of safety in the coming weeks so it’s highly contested. Team Solo Mid are currently at the top of the ladder but are being chase by Immortals, who will succeed here? Tune into the series when it goes live on Saturday, August 5th, to find out!

Team Logo Phoenix1 NA LCS 2017Phoenix 1 – P1 are in a dangerous position on the ladder, if they can’t pull off some strong performances and work their way into 8th place on the ladder they’re going to find themselves falling from the NA LCS. P1 have shown great potential, will it shine here?

Team Logo TSM NA LCS 2017Team SoloMid – TSM have come into week 9 of the NA LCS in 1st place. It’s a position that’s currently highly contest and there are a few teams that could work their way into the position. TSM are going to need to put on performances that prove their value at the top of the ladder.

Team Solo Mid look to be at an advantage here, they’ve taken a stronger position on the ladder due to their greater overall strength. They’ve had stronger performances throughout all stages of the Summer Split and also put on stronger international games. P1 are going to need to try to abuse their early strengths, followed by looking for success around the middle stages of the game. Unless they can pull off a successful early game I think TSM will work their way into a stronger position as time goes by on the rift.

Prediction: Team Solo Mid Victory. TSM have had stronger performances for the entirety of the Summer Split. Even when P1 found new strength TSM were able to outperform them. With their proven strengths over P1 I think TSM could find a fairly comfortable way on top of the series.

FlyQuest vs. Team Liquid NA LCS 2017 Summer Split Week 9
FlyQuest NA LCS 2017 - Logo FlyQuest vs. Team Liquid Team Logo Liquid NA LCS 2017

Start Time: August 5, 03:00 PM PDT / 06:00 PM EDT / 24:00 CEST

FlyQuest have worked their way on top of the 8th place tie that’s being contested by 2 other competing teams. They’ve taken the least losses of the teams at the bottom of the ladder and that’s bumped them up the tie slightly. They’re going to have a hard time but it’s going to be even harder for Team Liquid. TL is sitting at the bottom of the ladder but there’s still some hope. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Saturday, August 5th, to find out!

FlyQuest NA LCS 2017 - LogoFlyQuest – FLY have found themselves in 8th place on the ladder which comes with some form of safety. It’ll give them the opportunity to keep their NA LCS position when the Summer Split comes to an end but to keep it they’re going to need to really step up.

Team Logo Liquid NA LCS 2017Team Liquid – TL are sitting at the bottom of the ladder but there’s still a little hope left. With the few performances they have left they’re able to push into a much safer position on the ladder. They’re going to need to put on some extremely significant performances to pull off such a feat but the hope could give them strength.

Prediction: FlyQuest Victory. FLY have slowly been making improvements and it’s lead them into a position on the ladder where they’ll be able to find safety. They’ve taken fewer losses and more victories than TL and I think they’re going to find a way on top of this series because of their few minor strengths over TL.

Team Envy vs. Cloud9 NA LCS 2017 Summer Split Week 9
Team Logo Envy NA LCS 2017 Team Envy vs. Cloud9 Team Logo Cloud9 NA LCS 2017

Start Time: August 5, 12:00 PM PDT / 03:00 PM EDT / 21:00 CEST

Team Envyus are in 6th place as we head into Week 9 of the NA LCS. They were previously in a stronger position but the pressures of the finals weeks could be getting to them. Cloud 9 is sitting above NV on the ladder but just a few mistakes could have them falling positions quickly. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Saturday, August 5th, to find out!

Team Logo Envy NA LCS 2017Team Envyus – NV have had some stronger performances during the Summer Split and have found themselves in a very comfortable 6th place. There are only a few performances left for them before the end of the Summer Split so if they’re going to have more of an impact it’ll need to start now.

Team Logo Cloud9 NA LCS 2017Cloud 9 – C9 are sitting just below Counter Logic Gaming on the ladder and with very little time left I think C9 are going to put on some extremely tough performances. They’ve got their eyes set on a top position and even though there’s very little time left it’s possible for them to create significant ladder changes.

Cloud 9 look to be at a small advantage here. They’ve had stronger performances over the majority of the Summer Split and are looking to have a more significant impact as the Summer Split closes out. They’ve taken more individual game victories along with series victories in comparison to NV and have also taken significantly less losses. C9’s consistency could be difficult to handle but if NV can maintain their composure during the earlier stages of the game they could definitely push for more opportunities during those dire middle stages.

Prediction: Cloud 9 Victory. NV has had some strong performances over the course of the Summer Split but they’ve not been able to catch up to those teams at the top of the ladder. With C9 being so close to a higher position I think they’re going to find a way on top of this series.

Echo Fox vs. Immortals NA LCS 2017 Summer Split Week 9
Team Logo Echo Fox NA LCS 2017 Echo Fox vs. Immortals Team Logo Immortals NA LCS 2017

Start Time: August 5, 03:00 PM PDT / 06:00 PM EDT / 24:00 CEST

Echo Fox are currently in 7th place but are unable to push to a higher position due to the time constraints. They’re going to look to solidify their position because there are 3 teams tied for 8th place that are looking to push forward. Immortals are by the top of the ladder and are looking to take 1st place once again. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Saturday, August 5th, to find out!

Team Logo Unicorns of Love EU LCS 2017Echo Fox – FOX have found a suitable and safe position on the ladder which would be comfortable for when the Summer Split comes to an end. They’re unable to push any higher on the ladder and their position is being heavily contested. FOX are going to need to maintain their composure, putting on consistent performances, if they want to hold onto their position.

Team Logo Immortals NA LCS 2017Immortals – IMT are looking to take the top position on the ladder, to do that they’re going to need to come on top of every encounter they face. They’ve shown a phenomenal amount of strength throughout the entirety of the Summer Split but now they’re going to be put to the test.

Prediction: Immortals Victory. IMT have taken a significantly higher position on the ladder and have proven time and time again why they deserve their position. They’ve shown profound amounts of strength in all stages of the game and have been a challenge for every other competing team. I think IMT will be able to find a fairly comfortable way on top of the series.

NA LCS Summer Split 2017 – Week 9 | Day 3

Start Time: August 6, 12:00 PM PDT / 03:00 PM EDT / 21:00 CEST

Phoenix 1 need to look to make a small push forward, they’ve come into Week 9 tied for 8th place with 2 other competing teams. One of those competing teams happens to be their opponent here; FlyQuest have been the more consistent performing of the 3 tied teams at the bottom and they’re definitely going to be challenging here. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Sunday, August 6th, to find out!

FlyQuest NA LCS 2017 - LogoFlyQuest – FLY have the strongest position in comparison to the other teams competing for 8th place. They’ve taken the most individual game victories and have taken the least losses. If they can maintain their composure this could be a great opportunity for them to solidify their position and prove their strength.

Team Logo Phoenix1 NA LCS 2017Phoenix 1 – P1 have been unable to translate their sudden increase in strength into a more comfortable position on the ladder. Their potential definitely increased and they were able to put on some significant performances but for the time being they’re going to need to aim for 8th place.

Prediction: FlyQuest Victory. FlyQuest have shown improvements in the most recent weeks and they’ve been showing more confidence. P1 have an early advantage but I think FlyQuest will work their way into the middle stages of the game where their decision making will lead them to victory.

Team SoloMid vs. Counter Logic Gaming NA LCS 2017 Summer Split Week 9
Team Logo TSM NA LCS 2017 Team SoloMid vs. Counter Logic Gaming Team Logo CLG NA LCS 2017

Start Time: August 6, 03:00 PM PDT / 06:00 PM EDT / 24:00 CEST

A lot is on the line for both teams competing in this series. CLG are finding it difficult to make a final push, some of their players have been underperforming and it’s come with a cost. Team Solo Mid will be looking to compete for the 1st place position on the ladder; they’re trailing just behind IMT and need just a little bit of a push. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Sunday, August 6th, to find out!

Team Logo TSM NA LCS 2017Team SoloMid – TSM have managed to climb into a formidable position on the ladder and they’re certainly looking to push for more. They’re sitting in 2nd place at the moment and climbing to 1st place could be a matter of a single series victory. TSM will be looking to distance themselves from CLG too, CLG are trailing just behind and this series could lead to a significant drop if they can’t keep up.

Team Logo CLG NA LCS 2017Counter Logic Gaming – CLG are looking to work their way past Team Solo Mid here. They’ve taken a strong position on the ladder and they’ll need to perform extremely well here if they want to make their final push. They’ve shown some weakness on their individual players but a few minor improvements are all it would take.

Prediction: Team SoloMid Victory. TSM have been much more consistent than the competing team. They’ve taken 11 total individual game losses whereas CLG have taken 16. TSM have been performing steadily and I think they’re going to be too much for CLG to handle; leading TSM to victory.

Team Liquid vs. Team Dignitas NA LCS 2017 Summer Split Week 9
Team Logo Liquid NA LCS 2017 Team Liquid vs. Team Dignitas Team Logo Dignitas NA LCS 2017

Start Time: August 6, 12:00 PM PDT / 03:00 PM EDT / 21:00 CEST

This happens to be a series of great importance to both teams. Team Liquid are looking to take the series so they can push into 8th place, securing their LCS position, and Team Dignitas need to take the win so they can push ahead of Cloud 9 and contest a more convincing position. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Sunday, August 6th, to find out!

Team Logo Liquid NA LCS 2017Team Liquid – TL are in need of a push, they’re current at the bottom of the ladder but they’re sitting in a position that’s tied for 8th place. They need this series and will playing with everything they’ve got; they’re certainly going to put up a fight against Team Dignitas.

Team Dignitas Logo NA LCS 2017Team Dignitas – If DIG is looking to secure a higher position on the ladder they’re going to need to find a way on top of the series. If they want to contest the highest possible positions DIG are going to need to put on flawless performances. They’ve already shown the potential and could now be looking to upset the ladder.

Team Dignitas look to be at a pretty clear advantage here. They’ve put on stronger performances for the majority of the Summer Split and have shown much more consistency. DIG has managed to show a lot of potential in their performances and with a few minor improvements they could become a titan. TL is going to need to try and flaunt some early strength, they’ve shown that they’re competent team fighters but it’s the middle game decision making that will really tip the scales.

Prediction: Team Dignitas Victory. DIG has put on some thrilling performances so far and they’ve shown much more consistent strength in comparison to Team Liquid. With such a lead on the ladder I think Team Dignitas could find a comfortable way on top of this series.

Cloud9 vs. Echo Fox NA LCS 2017 Summer Split Week 9
Team Logo Cloud9 NA LCS 2017 Cloud9 vs. Echo Fox Team Logo Echo Fox NA LCS 2017

Start Time: August 6, 03:00 PM PDT / 06:00 PM EDT / 24:00 CEST

Echo Fox are in a fairly acceptable position on the ladder and are out of reach for 6th place so they’re going to want to achieve consistent performances to try and maintain their position. Cloud 9 is in a heated seat, they’re attempting to push forward but they’re also being chased. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Sunday, August 6th, to find out!

Team Logo Cloud9 NA LCS 2017Cloud 9 – C9 are definitely becoming more consistent and they’re avoiding some of their previous mistakes. They’ve found a comfortable position on the ladder but are looking to take more. They’ve shown some phenomenal strength and have been a challenge for every other competing team but can they channel those strengths to push forward?

Team Logo Unicorns of Love EU LCS 2017Echo Fox – FOX have been denied the climb into a higher position on the ladder but they’re also competing with some degree of safety, they’re in a comfortable position and will be aiming to keep hold of it. They could create some upsets on the way as they’re slowly improving.

Cloud 9 look to be at an advantage here. They’ve taken a higher position on the ladder by quite a margin; they have double the amount of series victories and have taken significantly fewer losses. They’ve shown more adaptability and a better understanding of macro management in the later stages of the game. Echo Fox have shown some incredible early game strength though and if they can play it correctly they could become a huge challenge for C9.

Prediction: Cloud 9 Victory. C9 are in a higher position and have showcased more strength in their performances. They had a little blunder on their climb up the ladder but have shown some recent improvements. I think C9 can find comfortable leads that will secure their series victory.

NA LCS Summer Split 2017 – Week 9 | Day 1

Team Logo Envy NA LCS 2017 Team Envy vs. Immortals Team Logo Immortals NA LCS 2017

Start Time: August 4, 03:00 PM PDT / 06:00 PM EDT / 24:00 CEST (the next day)

Team Envyus are sitting in a pretty stable 6th place, they could try to push for more but it’s going to be a challenge to reach the tied teams above them. Immortals are sitting by the top of the ladder and are currently tied for 1st place! Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Friday, August 4th, to find out!

Team Logo Envy NA LCS 2017Team Envyus – NV have found themselves on a little section of the ladder that’s fairly safe but it’s also a position where they’re going to have an extremely difficult time push forward. There are only a few weeks left of the NA LCS and NV are looking to make an impact.

Team Logo Immortals NA LCS 2017Immortals – IMT have climbed to the top of the ladder and have their eyes locked on 1st place. They’re currently in a tied position and if they can find a few small successes they’ll find that 1st place. They’ve shown great consistency and improvement and will be a tough opponent for anyone.

Immortals look to be in an advantageous position here. They’ve had more consistent performances and are at the top of the charts for their shown strengths. They’ve managed to find success in every stage of the game and can quickly take control of the map. NV are going to need to play with some patience in the early game, they’ll be able to use extra vision coverage to catch out the opposing team.

Prediction: Immortals Victory. IMT have proven to be a top team, they’ve shown great consistency and have enough potential to take 1st place on the ladder. I think they’ll find a fairly comfortable way on top of the series.

Team Dignitas vs. Counter Logic GamingNA LCS 2017 Summer Split Week 9
Team Logo Dignitas NA LCS 2017 Team Dignitas vs. Counter Logic Gaming Team Logo CLG NA LCS 2017

Start Time: August 4, 06:00 PM PDT / 09:00 PM EDT / 03:00 CEST (the next day)

Team Dignitas are stuck in a tied position, they’re able to push forward and claim a better position on the ladder but they have a few challenges ahead of them. They’re going to be going head to head against Counter Logic Gaming. CLG are only a single place above DIG but have shown more consistency. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Friday, August 4th, to find out!

Team Dignitas Logo NA LCS 2017Team Dignitas – DIG have taken a strong position on the ladder but are just a few small steps from taken a more highly contested position. If they can perform exceptionally for the remaining weeks of the Summer Split they could look to have a huge impact.

Team Logo CLG NA LCS 2017Counter Logic Gaming – CLG have shown a significant amount of potential. They’ve been unsuccessful in taking down the top teams on the ladder but have conquered the teams below them repeatedly. They’ve found a comfortable position with playoff potential and they’ll be looking to keep it.

Counter Logic Gaming look be at a minor advantage here. They’ve been more consistent when facing off against teams on the lower end of the ladder and they’ve shown greater strength with their adaptions. DIG are going to need to try and get a tempo lead around the middle stages of the game because their quick decision making could set them up to push for stronger leads.

Prediction: Counter Logic Gaming Victory. CLG are currently sitting barely above Team Dignitas and i think this serious could highlight how close these 2 teams are. But with more adaptions and stronger showings in series performances i think CLG will find a way on top of the series.
