The second week of the LCS Summer Split play is finally here, which means we’re in for yet another slew of exciting games and unexpected upsets. That last part is paramount here, and you need to keep it in mind if you’re looking to bet on competitive League over the coming weeks. Most teams are exhibiting some “ring rust” and will need a bit of time to warm up. The fact that many of them also underwent roster changes certainly doesn’t help either. This means that upsets tend to happen on a weekly basis and there’s very little rhyme or reason behind when they happen and why.
This is pretty standard whenever we’re at the start of the split — it takes around four or five weeks for the chaos to subdue. Around that halfway point of the split, the best and most stacked teams tend to kick things into high gear and start stringing win after win.
This time around, we’re looking at a very fascinating clash between Team SoloMid and FlyQuest. On paper, it’s bound to bring fireworks but how it’ll go down in actuality is anyone’s guess at this point. These two teams are relatively even in terms of strength and potential, so it’ll all boil down to who prepares better on the day. Most people will gravitate towards Team SoloMid because of their legacy and name value alone, but giving them the full benefit of the doubt so quickly would be quite foolish.
FlyQuest is the real deal and they have all the right tools and players to not only trade blows with Team SoloMid but also get the win. In that sense, this is as close as it can get. If it were a Best of 5 there’s no telling who would emerge victorious.
All of that said, for some odd reason, FlyQuest have decided to start with Mash in the bottom lane. This is a decision that, frankly, boggles the mind. WildTurtle — arguably their most iconic player — has been a staple presence and has been performing as well as people expected him to. Furthermore, he already has built-in synergy with the rest team and can still produce those highlight reel moments of brilliance.
This one change alone should sway everyone to TSM’s side. There’s no chance that Mash can survive the laning phase against a player like Doublelift, and if he gets priority in the draft (which is pretty much a given at this point), the most accomplished North American marksman is bound to steamroll his FlyQuest opponent with staggering ease. TSM should have no trouble in building a huge lead early on from the bottom lane and snowballing it across the map. All of that said, this FlyQuest bunch is highly resilient and will certainly trade blows right from the very get-go.
Expect absolute madness and a game that’ll be decided by the slimmest of margins.
