A fight between the former LCS champions and the second best team from Spring — what’s not to like? There are many reasons to tune in, especially if you’re looking for a bit of high-octane LCS action; this truly is a match-up worth your time and if things pan out as expected, it’s bound to deliver in every way, shape, and form.
Both teams are sitting on a very solid 5W-2L record and are fully cognizant of the fact that they’re each other’s biggest adversaries — there’s no way they’ll take Cloud9 down, so getting that second spot beneath them is what matters most at this point in time.
If you’ve just watched their games from yesterday, you’d probably think that Liquid doesn’t belong at the top after struggling so much against ninth-ranked Immortals, but you’d be mistaken. Team Liquid is almost always dangerous. That’s what you get when a team is stacked with two former World Champions and two Western legends who’ve already etched their names in history. If you’re looking for a safe bet, some would argue that Liquid are a bit more consistent (although that varies on a week-to-week basis) and that their macro-oriented playstyle is a nice “antidote” to FlyQuest and their aggression and skirmish-oriented approach to the game.
Still, both teams are separated by the slimmest of margins and will, no doubt, finish the season off strong. It’ll all boil down to how well they draft and execute in the early game.
Free Esports Pick:
We’re going with FlyQuest on this one as they’ve been far more impressive in their wins so far, and their clinic against Evil Geniuses yesterday is impossible to ignore. That said, this is extremely close and can truly go either way.
