LCS Super Week Day 1 Summer Split 2022 Recap
Playoffs are almost here as we have three more days of regular season LCS left.
You can check out more about the teams in the league with our LCS Power Rankings, updated weekly and ahead of Week 8!
Team Liquid vs Dignitas LCS Super Week
Super Week started with a slow game between TL and Dig. Despite the must-win nature of the game for Dig, it was TL that had a good early game taking the first blood and first Herald. The gold lead hit 2k during mid game after Bjergsen’s 200th solo kill in LCS. TL controlled the mid game really well, and even though they didn’t find too many kills they extended their lead via tower and cs advantages. TL utilized their Skarner pick great in the mid/late game to find picks and then secure objectives. With the overbearing TL lead, they ended the game without needing a Baron or Soul.

Golden Guardians vs Evil Geniuses LCS Super Week
For Super Week, GG brought Ablazeolive and Olleh back to the main roster once again.
Even though the game was very slow-paced in the early game, except for a level two EG dive in bot, the Geniuses were able to establish a 2k lead over GG due to their better map movement around Herald. GG were able to find some angles during mid game fights but Danny’s Zeri was too hot to handle and carried EG through team fights. With a Baron they secure and a siege with 10k gold lead, EG closed the game out comfortably.

FlyQuest vs 100 Thieves LCS Super Week
The trend of slow early games continued in our third game with both teams looking content to farm and scale to late without fighting as our first blood by FLY did not come until the 19th minute. They also took four towers on top of the kill which put them to a near 5k lead. The game stalled out as we got close to the late game thanks to FBI on Zeri. FLY had an opportunity to end the game after finding two picks, but 100T managed to hold on and even got a Baron just after their defense. In the end, it did not matter how well 100T was able to stall as they tried to go for a Baron-Drake trade, but they FLY contested and aced them, which ended the game.
With this win, FlyQuest secured themselves a playoff spot.

Counter Logic Gaming vs TSM LCS Super Week
There is no better answer to a slow day than a CLG game, as they had an explosive start to the game with repeat ganks/dives in the bot lane. However, the cs differences in top and mid lane for TSM were enough to balance the early game gold. CLG couldn’t carry their early tempo to the mid game and TSM were the side who found the kills, towers and drakes which gave them a very comfortable 4k lead. Despite a technical pause during the game, TSM did not lose their momentum and continued to create more advantages. Their first try at ending the game was repelled by CLG, but they got successful in their second attempt.

Immortals vs Cloud9 LCS Super Week
Back to the slow and steady trend in the last game. There wasn’t much action during the early and mid game except tracking the Draven stacks. However, C9 was very dominant once the laning phase ended. They were proactive around the map using their beefy frontline as they found picks and controlled objectives very well. The only objective they lost was the Baron that got stolen by Kenvi, but C9 found three kills after the steal. Immortals delayed the game with the remaining two Baron buffs, but once those ended they fell to the C9 siege and dive.

Highs and lows of the day
In a day full of very slow and low-action games, no team stood out too much to be worthy of big praise. It was very much a situation of slightly better macro or team fighting winning games. The team that stuck out most was probably TSM, who resisted an aggressive early game from CLG and played a near perfect mid game.
Even though all TSM members were on form today, Spica and Chime were exceptional with their movement around the map and with how many picks they found to give their team an advantage. Another two notable mentions were Philip, who had a very good game against 100T where he was the only engage option of his team and he delivered time and time again, and Impact showed up big time on Sejuani after some rough couple of weeks on carry champions.
