The fifth week of the North American League of Legends Championship Series Summer Split finished with TSM Snapdragon falling into a slump while Team Curse carried the momentum to victory.

Cloud 9 and Vulcun TechBargains continued to show strong games. Cloud 9 won all of their matches, with a highly contested match between Vulcun TechBargains in which they fell behind immensely. Vulcun TechBargains won games against TSM Snapdragon and Team Coast. Cloud 9 is in first place with a record of 13-2, and Vulcun TechBargains sits in second place with a record of 10-5.

Counter Logic Gaming and Team Coast both went 1-2 over the two days. While the members of Counter Logic Gaming are very mechanically skilled, they struggled with communication and dropped games against Cloud 9 and Team Curse. Team Coast introduced a new strategy this week, having NintendudeX play Jarvan IV with a Doran’s Blade start. While this strategy was good against Team Curse, it backfired against Team Dignitas and Vulcun TechBargains. Both teams took advantage of NintendudeX and snowballed off of him for a victory. Counter Logic Gaming sits in third place at 8-7, while Team Coast is tied for fourth place with Team Dignitas and TSM Snapdragon.

Team Dignitas went 2-1 this week, only dropping a game to Team Curse. Bottom lane duo Patoy and Imaqtpie were a dominating presence. TSM Snapdragon only took a victory against Velocity eSports. TSM Snapdragon pulled out an unorthodox bottom lane composition with champions Xin Zhao and Annie but Vulcun TechBargains dominated the game. Rival team Counter Logic Gaming also secured their third win in dominating fashion against TSM Snapdragon.

Team Curse finally pulled through on their positive momentum, going 2-1. They only lost a game to Team Coast, but showed persistence and great teamwork as they beat Counter Logic Gaming and Team Dignitas. Velocity eSports continues to catch no breaks, losing all three matches. Team Curse sits in seventh place at 6-9 while Velocity eSports sits in eighth place at 2-13.

The next NA LCS game starts on July 18 at 1 p.m. PST when Cloud 9 takes on TSM Snapdragon.
