C9 vs TSM
Pick/Ban: Xin Zhao for Amazing. Everything else pretty standard.
Outstanding Moments: Only 1 dragon fight and 1 baron fight all game. Both teams played it really safe. The silly sneak attack on a ward at the end. Gleeb hooks right into it
Top Fail: C9 gets baron at 23 mins because TSM wasn’t ready to contest.
MVP: C9 Meteos 4-0-7 Lee Sin
CRS vs CLG
Pick/Ban: Cop plays MF! Pretty standard otherwise. See Mundo and Kayle again.
Outstanding Moments: Crazy first blood/Level 1 fight, Xpecial falls to Doublelift. Link does really well! Seraph had a really great Shyv ult to stop the Bullet Time from Cop.
Top Fail: Crs tries to do baron… “lol nope” says CLG
MVP: CLG Link 7-2-4 Kayle - nearly 400 cs
LMQ vs EG
Pick/Ban: Kog for YellowPete.
Outstanding Moments: Very back and forth game. Great flay from Krepo at the dragon fight. Stops Shyv ult and Leona engage. Krepo is a god with Thresh, great flay and hook onto Xiao’s LB to totally interrupt the combo.
Top Fail: NoName walks into Thresh and Elise. Dies.
MVP: LMQ Vasilli 9-0-6 Lucian
COL vs DIG
Pick/Ban: nothing interesting
Outstanding Moments: BrokenShard with the Shyv ult denial with Lee kick! Shiphtur TRIPLE KILL! He is so good. Crumbzz flash cocoon onto Twitch and thats game! SHIPHTUR Dives fountain for PENTAKILL!
Top Fail: Zion gets juked so hard by Westrice in the top lane. Misses his shyv ult completely.
MVP: DIG Shiphtur 15-0-4 LeBlanc
CLG vs LMQ
GAME OF THE WEEK
Pick/Ban: LinkShotNidaleeGG mid lane. Jungle Nunu for NoName.
Outstanding Moments: 2 Kills bottom in the first 2 mins. Big flash from Seraph with counter-strike to get the stun. XiaoWeiXiao stops dexter from finishing resonating strike on dragon with Yasuo knock up. CLG is trying to force baron so hard, and LMQ reacts each time, Triple kill for Vasilli. Dexter with a HUGE activation of his Q and flash to kick Vasilli into the team, might be the best play of the week.
Top Fail: CLG throws at baron, give up 3 kills and baron even though they had the lead and the positional advantage.
MVP: LMQ XiaoWeiXiao 11-2-6 Yasuo
TSM vs CRS
Outstanding Moments: TSM gets a good catch in the jungle near mid lane and take baron off of it, good ult from Gleeb on Zyra. Xpecial grabs Turtle and then follows it up with a second on Amazing, leads to 2 kills and baron. Dyrus kills 2 in the last teamfight and shows what a real LCS team is supposed to look like. BUT THAT CURSE BOT LANE DOE!!
Top Fail: Xpecial misses dragon with hook. Dragon wasn’t moving.
MVP: TSM Dyrus 9-2-12 Shyvana
COL vs LMQ
Pick/Ban: Westrice on Malphite.
Outstanding Moments: LMQ wins a fight bot and take 4 for 0. The Ackerman teleport wins that fight.
Top Fail: Prolly rift walks into a twitch… a fed twitch. He dies. A horrible death.
MPV: LMQ Vasilli 10-1-15 Twitch
DIG vs EG
Pick/Ban: Dig bot lane is Thresh/Draven!
Outstanding Moments: Zion goes 3v1 and gets 1 for his own life. He is a god on Jax. The synergy in the end game with the Zion split push and actually QTPie on Draven splitting too was too much for EG.
Top Fail: Snoopeh gets caught by baron and as he is running he fail flashes… So much fail.
MVP: DIG ZionSpartan 9-6-3 Jax
TSM vs COL
Pick/Ban: Robert on Corki, Prolly going Ziggs against Bjergsen on Kass.
Outstanding Moments: Brokenshard with a really nice lee sin play to get a kill. Safeguard -> flash -> Dragon’s Rage -> Sonic wave. Was nice. Bjergsen gets a kill on Westrice’s Jax 1v2 while Bubbadub was there (Zyra).
Top Fail: Dyrus bought a Blue Elixir and a Mejais Soulstealer… On Renekton.
MVP: TSM Bjergsen 10-0-4 Kass
DIG vs C9
Outstanding Moments: Crumbzz controlled vision around C9 blue and it paid off twice. Crumbzz went bot and did an amazing dive for a kill on Lemon. Dig had a commanding lead the entire game, which does not happen against C9.
Top Fail: none
MVP: DIG Crumbzz 1-0-8 Lee Sin
EG vs CLG
Pick/Ban: Seraph on Irelia. Morello would be so proud.
Outstanding Moments: Link with a HUGE juke with Kassadin. Started as a 2v2 then moved into a 4v3. CLG wins that 3-0. Doublelift with the fade away Q kill.
Top Fail: none
MVP: CLG Doublelift 2-3-1 Sivir
