LEC, LCS 2019

Looking at the difficulty of last 2 weeks matchups for all the LEC playoff contenders, giving everyone 1 win vs XL/Rogue, 0 vs G2, 0.5 vs eachother



Fnatic shouldnt have been able to make playoffs when they started 3-7 but with the form they showing lately I think they make it.

XL+Rogue have 5 wins: 2 vs eachother, 1 vs SK and 2 vs Misfits. Think this makes Misfits miss playoffs.

Re: LEC, LCS 2019

Misfits are pretty much out they need to win their last 2 games and Schalke to lose both games to have chance.

SK and Schalke have a 1-1 record so if SK can catch up they will play a tiebreaker, but I think the most likely outcome is Schalke being the only team at 9 wins and they take the last playoff spot.



They change the playoff format this year so the top 2 teams are guaranteed a top 3 finish.

Origen - Vitality have a 1-1 record, Origen - Splyce 1-1 and Vitality - Splyce 2-0 and Splyce has the hardest schedule, so Origen or Vitality should get the 2nd place

Re: LEC, LCS 2019

The playoff race in NA looks less interesting than EU.

TL, C9 are qualified and TSM could make it even if they lose their last 4 games.

Echo Fox and 100Thieves are 2 games behind 6 place and need a miracle to make it, Clutch play vs TL, C9 and TSM in their last 4 games so they are not making it.

Of the 4 teams left CLG looks the weakest to me

If Golden Guardians make playoffs it will be the first time Froggen has made it since summer 2014 with Alliance.

Re: LEC, LCS 2019

so is it because im kinda old for gaming that i hate all these stupid production/puff pieces that the leagues are doing?

like they are trying to put on little commercials or failing to make funny skit segments..

just do the games, and then talk about the games and the champ picks. no one needs a segment with puppets and some fake drama from non-actors.

Re: LEC, LCS 2019

i dont understand how a professional league of legends team allows TSM to put akaddian on reksai. it's literally his only good champ.

also NA picking jarvan is hilarious. NA can't play jarvan 1-10 in playoffs and the win was already a stomp without him if i remember correctly

Re: LEC, LCS 2019

zven threw super hard in game 5. refused to buy QSS early and then got caught out twice by skarner and once E'd forward into a bush with leblanc and vlad in it. threw two barons and an elder to TL.. just an embarrassing performance in the biggest moments.

one of the catches, he was up near baron by himself and tried to engage into skarner plus two others?? and just immediately got deleted and gave the baron.

Baolan on Doublelift and CoreJJ: "They’re a good bot lane...for North America"

^ Take that hasn't aged well. The world champions with arguably the best top and mid laner in the world gets crushed by Team Liquid.

Doublelift's teams have now won 16 straight Bo5, the last loss was in 2016 Spring to the CLG team that made finals of MSI. His teams' inability to escape group stage during that span at MSI or Worlds is pretty amazing in that regard.

Re: LEC, LCS 2019

As a European it was hard for me to understand American culture. What's fascinating is they like bragging about their freedom, because I didn't think I had less freedom. I always thought 'What's the difference'. After this series I finally understand. NA is just so ****ing free.
