NA LCS 2014 Spring Split Week 2

/ Jan 28th, 2014 No Comments

[adsense250itp]The second week of the NA LCS 2014 Spring Split came to a close with Dignitas continuing their hot streak and Team Coast failing to notch a win. In two days, eight games were played.

The week opened up with Dignitas taking on XDG. XDG had a grip on the early game, with Jungler Zuna making plays and ganks on Elise. However, in the mid game, Dignitas had great catches against XDG, able to pick off kills and start rolling the game into their favor. Eventually, Dignitas took over the game with objectives and constant pick offs against XDG.

In the second game, Team Coast squared off against Curse. Team Coast picked a team with late game power, with Top Player ZionSpartan on Nasus, Mid Player Shiphtur on Kayle and AD Player WizFujiiN on Jinx. Curse took control of the game with map control and team fights. The team was able to push Team Coast into their base and eventually take the win. Curse’s Support Player, Zekent, was a key factor in making team fights go in Curse’s favor.

Evil Geniuses went up against Dignitas third in the week and could not stop Dignitas on a streak. Dignitas’ Bottom Lane Duo Imaqtpie and KiWiKiD took control of their lane and Mid Player Scarra was able to do well in team fights on the champion Ziggs. With a ton of momentum from the early and mid game, Dignitas took the win handily from Evil Geniuses.

The fourth game was Team Solomid against rival team Counter Logic Gaming. Team Solomid’s Jungler TheOddOne pressured Counter Logic Gaming’s Mid Player Substitute HotshotGG, giving Bjergsen the lead in the lane and shutting down HotshotGG for the entire game. With a stronger hold on objectives and Bjergsen and AD Player WildTurtle getting big on their champions Gragas and Lucian respectively, Team Solomid took the game with a decisive victory.

In game five, XDG took on Evil Geniuses for a rematch. Evil Geniuses pulled out an uncommon duo composition, with Yellowpete and Krepo playing Urgot and Soraka respectively. Combined with poke and sturdiness from the team, Evil Geniuses proceeded to siege and take skirmishes against XDG and secure a victory.

The sixth game put Team Solomid against Team Coast. Team Solomid created an early gold lead with Mid Player Bjergsen showing an impressive display on the champion Zed. The rest of Team Solomid followed for objective control and the game win.

Cloud 9 HyperX took on Curse in game seven. Cloud 9 HyperX’s Top Player Balls was able to take an early lead against his opponent Quas and showed impressive skills on the champion Rumble. With the top lane snowballing and tight Dragon and Turret control, Cloud 9 HyperX amassed a gold lead against Curse and took a decisive victory.

The final game pitted Dignitas against Counter Logic Gaming. Dignitas kept their momentum from previous games with an early invade into Counter Logic Gaming’s jungle, taking the blue buff away from Link. Dignitas took a three minute Dragon, the earliest Dragon kill to date this season. With the same momentum, Dignitas’ Imaqtpie proceeded to snowball in the bottom lane and Jungler Crumbzz showed great ganks on the champion Fiddlesticks. With pressure all over the map and secure objective control, Dignitas took down Counter Logic Gaming to extend their win streak to five games.

With the second week finished, Team Solomid sits at first place at 5-1. Cloud 9 HyperX follows in second place and Dignitas now sits in third. Curse remains in fourth place, Counter Logic Gaming, Team Coast, and Evil Geniuses tied for fifth place and XDG rounds out in last place at 1-5.

The next NA LCS game begins on Saturday Feb. 1 at 12 p.m. PST, with Team Solomid versus XDG.
