You can check out more about the teams in the league with our LCS Power Rankings, updated weekly and ahead of Week 8!

Counter Logic Gaming vs Immortals LCS Super Week Day 3

Immortals’ fight for a playoff spot did not start out on the right foot after Kenvi died during an early invade. Still, the young jungler rallied back up with good side lane ganks and the first Herald. But CLG showed up big once the team fights started during mid game as Palafox on a fed Akali made some huge plays. Immortals were trying to scale for the late game, but CLG had a gold and drake lead to prevent it. They were also more proactive around the map to find pick which gave them the first Baron. CLG broke the IMT base with this Baron and ended the game after winning a fight around the second Baron.

  • Teams: CLG – IMT
  • Time: 34:05
  • Kills: 13 – 5
  • Turrets: 9 – 1
  • Gold: 65.1k – 53.4k
  • Dragons: 4 – 0
  • Barons: 1 – 0

Evil Geniuses vs Cloud9 LCS Super Week Day 3

Another important game for standings as C9 was playing for fourth seed and EG for first. EG was the team that drew first blood with Jojo roaming top while C9 answered with the first drake and Herald. Teams traded some kills during mid game and despite being behind in kills, C9 had a lead in both gold and in drakes. But even from behind, EG’s mid/jungle duo was great at finding picks in team fights which meant most skirmishes went their way. After a long lull period, C9 committed hard for Impact’s Ornn and got punished by giving up four kills and a Baron to EG.

C9 almost turned the game around with their mid inhibitor defense during the siege, but they underestimated a low-health Inspired who made a great play to keep his team in the lead. EG then took another Baron with their inhibitor pressure. They almost lost the fight while going for the end once again, but Impact managed to end the game in a 1v3 and clinched his team the first place spot.

  • Teams: EG – C9
  • Time: 45:24
  • Kills: 22 – 13
  • Turrets: 11 – 3
  • Gold: 80.3k – 77.3k
  • Dragons: 4 – 3
  • Barons: 2 – 0

TSM vs FlyQuest LCS Super Week Day 3

Both junglers in the early game were mostly focused on ganking or countering ganks. The first objective taken was the first Herald at the eleventh minute, which Jose stole. Mid game was ruled by Spica once again going around the map and forcing pick after pick for his team. But they miscalculated how ahead they are when they started the Baron which gave FLY a fight opportunity, which they won. A quadra kill from Johnsun meant FLY were the ones who got the Baron. Fly almost ended the game after finding three kills in the mid lane, but TSM nexus lived with a sliver of health, which also gave TSM a chance to take Baron and a gold lead. But after killing Maple in the side lane, FLY took advantage of the long death timers and punished the open nexus.

This win meant there would be a tiebreaker between C9 and FLY for the fifth spot.

  • Teams: TSM – FLY
  • Time: 36:04
  • Kills: 17 – 20
  • Turrets: 6 – 10
  • Gold: 67.4k – 69.2k
  • Dragons: 2 – 3
  • Barons: 1 – 1

Team Liquid vs 100 Thieves LCS Super Week Day 3

TL had to win this game to force a tiebreaker against 100T for the second seed. They got a great start on that goal with Bjergsen’s dominant trades in the lane and two kills in the bot lane with repeat ganks from Santorin. TL had a 4k lead going into the mid game, despite the fact they drafted for scaling late. The only bright side for 100T was that they took the early objectives in the game. TL’s big lead did not matter once team fights started and 100T were winning most fights, even when it was a 4v5 which helped them secure a Baron. Despite a very fed Sivir, TL could not find success in team fights, giving up Infernal Soul and another Baron. After also winning the fight for the Elder, 100T finally ended the game and secured their spot in second.

  • Teams: TL – 100T
  • Time: 39:25
  • Kills: 12 – 22
  • Turrets: 4 – 9
  • Gold: 65.9k – 75.6k
  • Dragons: 1 – 4
  • Barons: 0 – 2

Dignitas vs Golden Guardians LCS Super Week Day 3

In the last regularly scheduled game of the day, GG needed a win to get themselves to the playoffs.

The game started disastrously for eXyu as he got invaded and got denied camps by River. But the rookie jungler got his revenge during the first Herald fight as Dig won the fight but GG claimed the Herald. Even with the early jungle lead from GG, Dig was the team that made the better plays and recovered great to put themselves in a 2k lead behind Blue’s Ahri. Dig secured the Ocean Soul and two Barons, despite being pressured by Licorice’s constant split pushing. They even got the Elder, but none of the objectives did not matter as GG won the fight after it to get themselves to five wins to secure the eighth and final playoff spot.

  • Teams: DIG – GG
  • Time: 38:43
  • Kills: 17 – 17
  • Turrets: 4 – 10
  • Gold: 69.4k – 71k
  • Dragons: 5 – 0
  • Barons: 2 – 0

Cloud9 vs FlyQuest (Tiebreaker) LCS Super Week Day 3

Both junglers focused mid lane in the early game, both getting kills on the enemy mid laner. Despite FLY finding a very early lead, C9 took control of the first objectives. They also used their comp very well to force plays around the map to find kills and more objectives. FLY tried to fight them around objectives but Blaber’s Xin with a Yuumi and a Zilean was too much for them to handle. After giving three kills in the fight for the soul FLY got chased down to their base, and C9 ended the game to secure the fifth spot.

  • Teams: C9 – FLY
  • Time: 29:33
  • Kills: 25 – 8
  • Turrets: 7 – 2
  • Gold: 58.6k – 48.2k
  • Dragons: 4 – 0
  • Barons: 1 – 0

Notes of the day

The biggest performance of the last day of LCS came from the star mid/jungle of EG. Inspired especially great once again today, cementing his position as the frontrunner in the MVP discussion. Another great top side showing came from CLG, not surprisingly, as they dominated Immortals while Palafox showed the fans how good he is on assassins.

I was really excited for TL at the start of their game as they dove bot very early to play for Hans. But they could not execute in team fights and they couldn’t protect their fed ADC. On the other hand, 100T once again delivered when the scaling time came and I loved that they brought out Senna who is a great champion for FBI and allows Huhi to get creative picks.

Then there are the negatives. Cloud9 keeps getting punished for their overaggressive plays and today was not an exception. We saw two different plays, chasing Impact and Inspired, where they throw the game during a stabilizing moment. We saw what they can do when they are actually communicating during their tiebreak against FLY, so here’s to hoping we see more of the latter in the playoffs.
