Re: NA LCS Season 7

Probably a good thing that c9 lost since they would have been embarrassed at MSI.

They had 4 minutes of double tp vs no tp in a game they were winning with baron on the map. They turned that advantage into getting 0 objectives and losing a kill. To make it worse, during those 4 minutes, they didn't even attempt baron or try to take a turret, they literally just wavecleared. If your macro play is that god awful, you don't deserve to play internationally.

Re: NA LCS Season 7

Thats a tilter. TSM should have lost a 5 game series to a wildcard team from Vietnam. But in game 4 Vietnam had a 2k gold lead, made a pick, took the free mid inhib, then can just take the free baron and reset with their double tp comp, based on their game 2 where they played a 1 3 1 with baron and destroyed TSM, victory seemed all but got. But then they tried to end 5v4 with a non super minion wave, got wiped, lost baron, lost game. At least they chunked that nexus turret by half hp though. Worth

Re: NA LCS Season 7

Echo Fox recently announced they're not going to scrim anyone but their challenger squad this split, who have just been announced:



Would any of these guys be top 5 in the LCS in their position? Or are any of them better than their Echo Fox LCS counterpart? Maybe Imaqtpie > Keith, rest seems pretty lopsided.

Re: NA LCS Season 7

Qtpie would be top 3

Dyrus possibly top 5

Scarra possibly top 5 at support because lul NA's support pool and Scarra having knowledge of macro.

+1

I love how yesterday Scarra, QT, and Shiphtur were on BeyondTheRift talking about how they don't want to play professionally anymore...then they announce this lol. It's not quite professional but they mentioned the thing they miss most about being pro is being in an environment where everyone is actively trying to get better at the game. This seems perfect and they're able to "breed" new NA talent. Brilliant by Echo Fox as well, picking up popular streamers to build their fan base.

EDIT: QT is easily one of the best ADC in NA; like Arrow, DL, QT, maybe Sneaky, then there's a pretty significant drop IMO.

Top laners in NA include Ssumday, Hauntzer, Impact, Looper, and Flame. I'd argue Dyrus is quite outclassed by those guys.

But yeah, the bot lane pool is pathetic, there aren't five good ADCs or supports in NA. Smoothie, Olleh, and Hakuho were solid as supports and Arrow, Doublelift, Sneaky, and Stixxay as marksmen.
