I was half right on day one but didn’t think Team EnVy would take down Immortals so easily. Everyone had a good game. Maybe they’re the real deal this split. Whatever the case here’s the standings after day one.
1. Counter Logic Gaming, Team Dignitas, Immortals, Team EnVy, Echo Fox
6. Team SoloMid, Cloud9
8. Team Liquid, FlyQuest, Phoenix1
This all still doesn’t mean much. Until we get to about the halfway point we’re going to have teams stacking in each ranking, but what does mean something is the play up until that point. Everyone is still finding out what’s viable for their team in competitive play after the mid-season update and it’s going to take some time. Here are the matches taking place today:
- Team Dignitas vs Team SoloMid (1-2)
- Echo Fox vs Counter Logic Gaming (1-2)
- Immortals vs FlyQuest (2-1)
- Team EnVy vs Team Liquid (2-0)
To be honest there isn’t going to be much for analysis here. I need to watch more games to see how everyone is playing together and approaching the split. What they’re good at now and what they’re struggling with. That doesn’t mean I’m not going to make my guesses though.
Per usual they’re above and basically, I’m going with what I’ve seen so far and general perceptions of the teams. In short, I like TSM overall team strength and think they’re ready for Dig and Ssumday, Echo Fox always disappoints me and I won’t believe until the end of the season, I like Xmithie on Immortals a lot and hopefully, they can prove me right with his leadership and EnVy are looking really strong right now while Liquid looks like Liquid.
