The best part about the LCS is that after an amazing opening weekend, the action continues the next week! Now granted the week 2 matches aren’t as glamorous as the opening weekends, we should still be in for some good games.
Early on it looks like Curse have taken a lead, going 3-0 in the opening weekend, which includes wins over Team Dignitas, and CLG. Led by the outstanding performance of jungler and captain Saintvicious, Curse look to secure 2 more wins this week as they go up against Complexity and Vulcun.
Team Dignitas vs TSM SnapDragon. Thu 02/14 – 4PM PST
The big game of the weekend come with this match up on the first day. TSM have already beaten Dig this season, although we can call that game extremely close, so Dig will be out for revenge. Another mid lane epic here as Regi and Scarra face off once more, 2 very seasoned and very skilled mid laners. Another interesting lane will be Dyrus vs KiwiKid in the top lane. KiwiKid was violated by Voyboy in the match vs Curse and it will be interesting to see if he has improved enough to face off with the extremely experienced Dyrus. All this being said, this is an opinion blog, and i’m calling TSM to take this one, based on the fact that I feel TSM were playing badly last weekend, and still managed to beat Dignitas, and I only feel like TSM will get stronger going into these games. Still going to be a very close game though
Curse vs Vulcun. Fri 02/15 – 5PM PST
The LoL Esports website didn’t feature this as a ‘Game to Watch’ which I thought was wrong, so I decided to preview this game instead of the other game they highlighted ( Dignitas vs GGU ). So anyway, Curse are obviously flying at the moment, and are in my mind, the best team in NA. However I do feel that Vulcun can come out and surprise Curse if they aren’t careful enough. They have to be disappointed to play so well against TSM and Dig and to come out 0-2 that their motivation is going to be sky high to bounce back. I think the key for Vulcun will be either winning the bot lane, shutting down Voyboy at top or hoping that Nyjacky is not on form. The bot lane for me is the weakest part of Curse, so therefore easiest to target, but I also feel that if Voyboy is left unchecked, he can control the game, Nyjacky has a tendency to be rather inconsistent, so if he is playing badly Vulcun can capitalize. I want to say a Vulcun win because I love supporting the underdogs, but I feel that Curse are just too good at the moment.
Once again thanks for reading guys. I’m going to be doing preview posts each week for both regions in the style of :
Intro -> Current leading team -> 2-4 best match ups.
I also would like to expand into video making, vlogging, video interviews and what not, but to do that I need enough readers/viewers to make it worth it. I also may be partnering with a friend of mine to expand into a proper website with news and vids, but that could be weeks away.
Follow me @Howspiffing for updates on my team ( MyRevenge ), my writing, and some of my personal life, although I keep that to a minimum now xD
