Cloud 9 Victory NA LCS Regional

The North American League of Legends Championship Series Regional took place at PAX Prime in Seattle, Wash. with the top six North American teams participating. The six teams that made it to the Regional playoffs were Cloud 9 HyperX, Vulcun TechBargains, TSM Snapdragon, Team Curse, Team Dignitas and Counter Logic Gaming. The top three teams from the tournament qualified to represent North America at the World Championship.

In the quarterfinals, TSM Snapdragon took on long-time rivals Counter Logic Gaming and Team Curse faced off against Team Dignitas in a best-of-three match. TSM Snapdragon swept Counter Logic Gaming, taking towers, global objectives and winning decisive team fights to finish each game. TSM Snapdragon captain and mid player Reginald was a key factor in the win against Counter Logic Gaming. Team Dignitas stepped up in their second and third game. Jungler Crumbz controlled the game the entire time on the champion Lee Sin.

Counter Logic Gaming and Team Curse were both knocked down to a relegation series where the loser would be put into the Season 4 promotional tournament to play against a challenger team to keep their spot in the LCS. Counter Logic Gaming AD player Doublelift dominated the champion Tristana, playing through superior positioning and last-hitting skill. Counter Logic Gaming showed more cohesiveness over Team Curse, securing their spot in the LCS for next season while Team Curse would have to play through the promotional tournament to claim their spot.

In the semifinals, TSM Snapdragon matched up against Vulcun TechBargains and Team Dignitas took on Cloud 9 HyperX. TSM Snapdragon swept the match against Vulcun TechBargains. TSM Snapdragon showed a team cohesion that trumped Vulcun TechBargains’ plays with top player Dyrus and AD player WildTurtle being key. Team Dignitas showed that they knew how to play against Cloud 9 HyperX in the early game, but could not follow up and lost to Cloud 9 HyperX in a sweep. Cloud 9 HyperX surmounted enormous gold leads in a 2-0 victory. TSM Snapdragon and Cloud 9 HyperX earned the first two spots to represent North America in the World Championship.

Vulcun TechBargains swept the third-place match against Team Dignitas. Vulcun TechBargains top player Sycho Sid only died once in both games. Vulcun TechBargains secured the third and final spot to represent North America in the World Championship with the victory.

In the final match, Cloud 9 HyperX swept TSM Snapdragon. Cloud 9 HyperX showed superior team fight and objective control while also showing they could adapt their champion selection even when having key champions like Ashe and Zyra banned out. With the sweep, Cloud 9 HyperX earned a bye in the World Championship group stage.

Cloud 9 HyperX, TSM Snapdragon and Vulcun TechBargains will join international teams to compete in the World Championship in Los Angeles. The tournament will be held starting Sep. 15.
