Just a short post on this, but CLG finally managed to actually win something for the first time in forever. An emotional day for all CLG fans for sure (HotshotGG shedding a tear in the post-match interview sure tugged at my heartstrings). Well played from the whole team, now I just hope it lasts and they don’t immediately crumble again.
On the other side of the Atlantic we also saw some great games between OG and Fnatic. 5 games, an eventual Fnatic victory and a pentakill for Rekkles; I don’t think it could have been better if it was scripted by Riot. Some fantastic games all around. Hopefully worlds will also deliver some great games, and hopefully the LCS teams will put up a good fight (ZionSpartan claiming they had a good chance to win worlds was a bit of a joke, no LCS team will win) but maybe, just maybe the stars will align and we’ll at least see on or two western teams in the semifinals. That would be nice. Though with so many strong Chinese and Korean teams in the mix this time it doesn’t look too promising.
