The first round of the League of Legends semifinals is here.
For the first round, we have an iconic rivalry between Team SoloMid and Cloud9. Both need to either win the split or take the gauntlet to qualify for Worlds.
Cloud9 had a rocky start to the split, but have rebounded as the NA LCS’ most dangerous team. They can sub in any of their 7 LCS ready players and create matchup problems. Riding their 8 game win streak they’re hoping to finally break the TSM curse that’s plagued them in so many playoffs.
For TSM this a chance for them to re-cement themselves as the best in the league. They haven’t been up to standards the last two splits and after acquiring the best bot lane in Europe the expectations were for them to dominate. They’ve looked good as of late, but they need to get to Worlds.
