Dignitas are 2-5 since week 7 (bye week 8). They better step up or they won't be competing this summer

The teams are a bit strange right now. I notice a lot of animosity in TSM and DIG, they just don't seem to be getting along with each other. I even notice a little bit on Complexity, seems like Lautemortis, Prolly and Nick Wu are tight, and MEyeA and especially Brunch U, seem to be left out.

Must be all the pressure.

I never realized just how tiny Scarra's champion pool is, when he doesn't get Zed/Diana/Gragas, he doesn't do well.

CLG doesn't really have any stake in Week 10 anymore I think. They have no chance of moving in to top 2, nor will they drop to 7th place or below if they lose all their games. I have a feeling this lack of danger will cause them to not perform exceptionally well. (Except maybe against the top seeds just to challenge themselves, but I feel like they'll lose to the bottom 4 seeds)

Honestly I think they will try to win b/c what they do now is like practice for when the real thing comes.

I think CLG is going to try hard given how completely terribly they've performed up to this week. This is their moment to declare that they don't totally suck in the NA pro scene. They actually started pushing that yesterday. I was surprised they actually won games.


Other than that, I am interested to see how far Complexity take their momentum and if they can actually perform consistently and reliably. If they can, they could move towards the top.

Curse seems to be slipping. I think they became slightly complacent. Their picks have been slightly "non-tryhard", which is fine. It's good to experiment. However, they've also become slightly sloppy and haven't pushed strategies as hard as they did early in the season. I wonder if they'll just laying off to relax a bit before the next stage, or if this is a more permanent trend.


So, basically I'm only interested in the CL and Curse games. I have a mild interest to see if CLG ever do something besides a ridiculously obvious and predictable split push + doublelift strat, and to see TSM evolve, but not too much. I'm also interested to see MegaZero play Riven. Other than that, the NA LCS is pretty /zzz.

EU is much more interesting. Starswars and OGN are also more interesting than EU LCS. But, they don't have Deman so it's not as entertaining.

I really like vulcan.

Although they are in the bottom tier of NA teams, I think they are the best of that tier.

But at the same time... I feel like Complexity has improved quite a lot too... Prolly/Nickwu... Idk... I only like vulcan and complexity now.

coL vs TSM.

This will be a really interesting game if coL gets the upper hand in the beginning.
