LoL eSports Discussion

This forum is specifically for discussing non-Mafia games (board, card, video, we're not picky). Playing such games should happen in the Mish Mash forum, of course.

it is in these trying times we must ask ourselves the harsh philosophical question: do screenshots of game end screens count as strategy?

Nope. They don't, I have no interest in talking strategy with bad players.

Did GGU really clobber curse that hard?

I was on the curse bandwagon back when they were shit. I became a fan after the stripclub thing. I am a hipster now.

Only game I watched was the CLG-Dig game, and I was very Impressed with Doublelift. Dude is insane. I also watched his interview after the game, hilarious.

I missed the last 2.
Right now I just want to see Complexity win all their games because Prolly is awesome.

Having a separate thread is silly :|

Can't people just use spoiler tags in the normal thread or be more careful about reading the LoL thread during LCS if they aren't watching and don't want to know the results?

The NA just got really interesting. I'm crossing my fingers that Complexity can get a miracle or two and end up in the playoffs, but that's fairly unlikely. Regardless, it will be a fun ride. The "bottom 4" teams have really showed up at the end of the season, and no team is safe. The summer season will be an absolute free for all, and I wouldn't be surprised to see the whole bottom 4/top 4 dichotomy completely shattered.

As for this side of the all star break, my money's on TSM. Ever since they picked up Turtle they've looked really strong, and Curse has been stumbling a little. Also, I think there's a very good change that CLG gets knocked out of the playoffs in the first round.

Maybe because I pretty much only play solo queue, but isn't the lack of a ban as much as of a punishment for TSM and GGU?

Talking during pauses so they got their first ban taken away, and we got a hilarious clip of of the guy that isn't phreak Jatt getting hilariously trolled.

Um, not remotely? Losing a ban can be almost decisive in some matchups.

Did they actually say who was the one who was talking during the pause? I was in a clan with Mash for a couple of years and it seems like the kind of thing he'd do.

Context for anyone who didn't see it: Bloodwater facechecked a couple Vulcun players in the top tribush at lvl1, and the game was paused just as he entered the brush.

Riot has come out and said that the pause was legitimate, because Mash was having computer issues. He disconnected from the game and fixed the issue. On the subject of the rule breaking, it has come out that someone asked BloodWater if he was going to be okay, and he said he should be able to get out with Flash/Exhaust.

Playoffs are here! My predictions:

EU

SK over AAA 2-0 - SK has proven to be a much better team over the course of the season.
EG over CW 2-1 - I'm a big fan of the Wolves, and I think this set could go either way, but I'm betting on the experience of EG to pull through.

Fnatic over EG 2-0 - EG's struggling, Fnatic isn't.
GMB over SK 2-0 - Even though SK did take a game off them last week, I still think the Russians have their number.

GMB over Fnatic 3-2 - Super close set that could really go either way, but I'm giving the slightest edge to Gambit. Ed Ward too stronk.

NA

DIG over GGU 2-0 - I think DIG will get their act together in time.
VUL over CLG 2-1 - A bit of an upset pick, but CLG has looked downright awful at times, and Vulcun has a ton of potential.

TSM over VUL 2-0 - TSM is on fire right now, and I think they are the only team that Vulcun has never beaten in LCS play.
DIG over CRS 2-1 - Neither team has looked good at all recently, but at least DIG didn't have to undergo a roster change. On the flip side, it seems like most of the roster changes in the LCS turned out really well, so I could be totally off base. Regardless, it'll be a close set.

TSM over DIG 3-0 - The only "top four" team that looked any good in the last week should bring it home. I think this is TSM's to lose.

Is it bad, I reallyyy don't care about NA LCS? EU is way more interesting...

Anyways for EU preditictions I agree. Gambit are very good at this kind of thing and I can easily see them winning the whole thing. aAa might surprise us and take at least 1 game from SK. they are a good team that is getting better each day. I will be rooting for both EG and CW. Either winning will be awesome but I think EG's experience in the best of 3 category will provide them with the win.
