We have the big NA classic of C9 versus TSM as the game of the week.

Saturday, March 2nd

5 PM ET TSM vs Echo Fox

When TSM and Echo Fox first encountered each other, we witnessed a very sloppy game from both sides. We find ourselves four weeks later with what is expected to be a TSM favored rematch. TSM has been able to find some key victories in the last couple of weeks and look to be hitting their stride. Echo Fox, on the other hand, went 0-2 for the first time this week and will be looking to bounce back and stay in contention for a top six place finish.

Brandon: TSM

Manny: TSM

Major: TSM

Ibriz: Echo Fox


6 PM ET Golden Guardians vs Cloud9

The Golden Guardians have been enjoying life outside of last place, yet, it is clear that the Guardians are still not in contention of the top half of the standings. When Cloud9 face the Guardians, they will be looking to increase their lead from the rest of the League. Cloud9 is considered one of top two teams in NA and are looking poised to challenge Team Liquid for a title.

Brandon: C9

Manny: C9

Major: C9

Ibriz: C9


7 PM ET CLG vs FlyQuest

Another 0-2 week for CLG will be a crushing blow to the team's mentality. The fact that the team not only lost both games last week, but got dismantled in Pre-30 minute games can be a massive blow. FlyQuest is looking to bounce back from their recent 1-3 slide. FlyQuest has already dropped one game to CLG and will be looking to not commit the same mistake to stay within the top four. CLG is poised to make some waves and bounce back this week.

8 PM ET Optic Gaming vs Team Liquid

Ever since the loss to TSM, it was gripping to see Team Liquid play once again and see if they would falter under pressure. Much like G2 in the LEC, the one game Liquid dropped didn't seem to matter much as the team steamrolls the rest of the opposition.  Optic Gaming has been able to beat all the teams underneath them in the standings but has yet to show much promise against the ones above. Sadly for Optic fans, this game seems to heavily favor Team Liquid.

Brandon: Team Liquid

Manny: Team Liquid

Major: Team Liquid

Ibriz: Team Liquid


9 PM ET Clutch Gaming vs 100 Thieves

In the past year, you never would have imagined hearing that 100 Thieves would be in a fight for ninth place, but that is exactly the situation the Thieves find themselves in.  Both Clutch Gaming and 100 Thieves are showing that just because you acquire great talent that it doesn't immediately equate to success. It will be compelling to see if either of these two teams has what it takes to start consistently winning games.

Brandon: 100 Thieves

Manny: 100 Thieves

Major: Clutch Gaming

Ibriz: Clutch Gaming


Sunday, March 3rd

3 PM ET FlyQuest vs Optic Gaming

Crown, in pursuit of happiness, and will be looking to gain some satisfaction when Optic takes on FlyQuest. In terms of team strength, FlyQuest has an advantage going into this game but needs to secure a win to keep the pressure on the top three teams. Optic has been sluggish, and due to the many roster changes have not been able to establish a consistent run.  What seems to be the trick for Optic is bringing in Dardoch for the jungle and if he continues his excellent play he can be the difference maker.

Brandon: Optic Gaming

Manny: FlyQuest

Major: FlyQuest

Ibriz: FlyQuest


4 PM ET Cloud9 vs TSM

This is the match of the week. The true North American rivalry feels reborn when a surging Cloud9 confronts an improving TSM. Even though these teams have changed throughout the years, this feels to be the start of another amazing chapter in the rivalry. TSM has been able to defeat Team Liquid and will be attempting to go even with Cloud9 and prove that the old kings of NA are looking to get back their throne. C9 feels confident about being the best LCS team and will be looking to derail the TSM hype train.

5 PM ET Team Liquid vs CLG

Counter Logic Gaming, as per usual, is making fans lose their hair after going 0-2. Sadly, for CLG the road does not get easier as they face Team Liquid. CLG has no pressure this game as they are the clear underdogs. This can give a great opportunity for Team Liquid to drop their second game of the year. Whatever the case, CLG has their backs against the wall as the rest of the LCS teams continue to show weekly improvement.

Brandon: Team Liquid

Manny: Team Liquid

Major: Team Liquid

Ibriz: CLG


6 PM ET 100 Thieves vs Golden Guardians

100 Thieves has had an abysmal first half of the season and will not be considered the favorites until they can consistently show some improvements. The Golden Guardians have kept showing improvement and are looking to stay clear from a last-place finish. It is still unclear what 100 Thieves are missing, but it is clear that the roster acquisitions have not paid off yet.

Brandon: 100 Thieves

Manny: Golden Guardians

Major: 100 Thieves

Ibriz: Golden Guardians


7 PM ET Echo Fox vs Clutch Gaming

Sunday is the day of Rush, until last week that is. Now, there are no guarantees for Echo Fox. They are facing one of the two last placed teams but will still need to clean up their game if they want to defeat Clutch Gaming. Echo Fox need to prove themselves again, and it seems that doing so against a sluggish Clutch Gaming can be just what the doctor ordered.

Brandon: Echo Fox

Manny: Echo Fox

Major: Echo Fox

Ibriz: Echo Fox
