NA League of Legends Championship Series Summer Split Week 1 Results

/ Jun 19th, 2013 1 Comment

League of Legends Championship Series

The first week of the North American League of Legends Championship Series Summer Split finished up with newcomer Cloud 9 taking the lead by posting an undefeated score of 5-0, while veterans like Counter Logic Gaming and Team Curse struggled to find wins.

The week was a super week, meaning each team ended up playing five games. Cloud 9 finished the week proving the team can live up to the hype surrounding it. Each of Cloud 9’s members showed fantastic plays and the team even toppled last split’s champions TSM Snapdragon. Cloud 9 jungler Meteos currently has the highest Kill/Death/Assist ratio (KDA) in the split and is averaging 27.5 KDA this season.

Meanwhile, Team Coast, formerly known as Good Game University, and Vulcan TechBargains ended the week at 3-2. Both teams pulled off surprise victories against favorites Counter Logic Gaming, Team Curse and Team Dignitas.

TSM Snapdragon ended the week with a 3-2 record, while CLG and Dignitas both ended at 2-3. By the end of the week, TSM Snapdragon was able to find their groove but CLG and Dignitas both showed some poor plays. CLG still has members like Nientonsoh, bigfatlp and Chauster adjusting to new roles, but it seems the break between the spring and summer split has affected some of the teams. Team Dignitas also struggled in their games, showing the same difficulty from the summer playoffs.

Meanwhile, Team Curse and Velocity eSports ended the week with a record of 1-4. Velocity eSports showed some new strategies with a double AD Carry split push composition but could not get more than one win for the week.

Team Curse struggled to secure even one victory. Despite having new support EdWard show some brilliant plays, Team Curse did not show the proper cohesion as a team.

The next NA LCS game starts on June 20 at 1 p.m. PST. when Cloud 9 takes on Counter Logic Gaming.
