Dkoron

Is there a reason Trundle isn't being played into Xin more, or even at all? He's in a really good spot right now and is one of the few champs who can duel early, idk seems like a better pick than Olaf at least


Space_Lion7

This day was a little boring, too many one sided games, Hope teams start banning akali until she gets nerfed (again) does anyone know how many games CLG has to lose before they are locked out of contentions?


Mashtatoes

Currently they’re 3 games behind top 8 with 21 games to go. So quite a few. They probably won’t be eliminated until the last two weeks of the split.


cardmasterdc

100thieves in first with the summer record. We made it boys.


Insanity96

Do you mean just summer record or full year? Cuz C9 still up a game overall


cardmasterdc

Summer record


Itseemstobeokay

Can we just cancel summer split and send 100T, C9, TSM, TL into a double elim playoff bracket and send our representative to Korea to boot camp for worlds


calvinee

How about bootcamp and then playoffs in a few months? For my TL boys


GooseSpringsteenJrJr

Impact doesn’t know how to play Gwen


YCitizenSnipsY

We all got to watch a Udyr lose and I don't think that is being appreciated enough


sieer

The good old “watch the other team do drake and fight after they are done”. Don’t even try to go and trade baron for it, or do anything that resembles macro. Just stand there.


thorpie88

I swear EG talk in their native languages on comms as no one has any idea what the others are doing


Reinhardtisawesom

“I cooka da meatball” - Jiizuke probably


WOULD_QUESTION_MARK

eg going full fiesta, wow


lolhaa2

lol someone post DL's stream where they talking about FBI's ZZZZZ


HiuretheCreator

that is, without a doubt, one of the funniest league of legends match i've ever watched


Idenkiteki

Why did jizuke front line that fight blows my mind


Destructodave82

He didnt get to run it down yesterday so he decided to make up for it today.


Trashcan_Daniels

100T look really good. ...maybe we should just not talk about EG for now.


Unseen_but_heardYYES

How does Camille fare side line against Gwen?


johantdothat

Oh man. DS Camille into Gwen would be a pretty good show, at least.


4716202

Impacts Gwen is looking very useless

Krakusmaximus

your forget damonte can only play galio and tf. jizuke isnt toplevel but damonte is really troll


REALStoneCrusher

Y’all act like EG won something. Hell anyone can be in the middle of the pack and at this point I’d rather give NA natives a chance than bring someone from abroad.


haven4ever

Jiizuke is the leader of the Casa Nostra so if they kick him then they will all get Sicilian smiles.


Tachyoff

depends what type of visa they're on, idk if eSports is recognized as sports but if so they're likely on p-1 visas and that doesn't require proving no US player can do the job.


GhostOfLight

I don't know if this is the case anymore, but I know at one point some LCS teams put out newspaper ads to show that they did search for viable candidates in the US for visa purposes.


CoffeeLoverNathan

Because as much as he can cost you the game, he can also hard carry and be the reason you win it. He's coin flip, there's no inbetween


REALStoneCrusher

Shit u can give any native a try and they’ll give u a 50/50. Maybe if EG was winning LCS or perineal no.1 every season but they ain’t. So keeping him in NA is just stupid


thorpie88

Are you describing Jizuke or Mickey?


CoffeeLoverNathan

Yes


GhostOfLight

More like Butt Geniuses, because they are playing like ass


Zarolto

Damn bro, didn't have to go in so hard like that.


YCitizenSnipsY

sounds kinky


MinimalPotential

What a tilter. Haha.


CoffeeLoverNathan

100t literally playing with their food


YCitizenSnipsY

Tragic for EG


WhirlingDervishGrady

Holy fuck that was some horrible play by EG


4716202

Biggest misconception about jayce is that he is empowered shock blast the champ.


4716202

As Jiizuke expertly demonstrates, he also has another Q


Prunedsis

Welp knew this game was doomed when they picked Jayce for Jizuke for whatever reason. Also not sure why Pastry is just screaming in my ear like someone got a pentakill off of farm leads.


bolibombis

NA on a crusade today to make Akali look balanced.


C9-F1R3L0L1

Jayce is the most useless champion in the game, every time i see him he is just there, not doing anything at all


4716202

Jayce is good just hard and requires you to start your snowball in lane.


REALStoneCrusher

He’s just standing there menacingly


DarthOniichan

Jesus Christ this thread is toxic.


4716202

late NA live thread is always dark


REALStoneCrusher

EG bout to sell their slot like S04 after today’s ugly game… again


YCitizenSnipsY

There is the pause I'm guaranteed in LCS


GodofSteak

I'd want a refund if I didn't get my pause.


4716202

The Jiizuke I know would have gone in for that 1v3, I assume thats what the pause is about, his mouse is bugged


Zooki_Stardust

Jiizuke perfecting the art of NA Jayce


REALStoneCrusher

THROWzuke special rt

thorpie88

This is just back to OG Pastry where he shouts 24/7.


Zarolto

idk i'm kinda liking it, he sounds like hes off his meds.


Juxee

WHERE WERE YOU WHEN WE SAW THE SCOOPYWOOPY?


CritsandGravy

Pastry is on another level right now


Zarolto

The 'Scoopy Woopy', ok Pastry is on something today.


YCitizenSnipsY

Oh thank god, for a second I was worried a fight might break out


4716202

Appreciate pastrys attempts to keep me awake at 3am


GentlemenBehold

Pastrytime really trying to hype this 0-0 death at 15 min. game.


GodofSteak

He try his bes :(


C9-F1R3L0L1

God EG is so sloppy, missed a lot of plays, can't even place herald properly


YCitizenSnipsY

Booooooooorrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnggggggggggg


acels1

this is not the EG fiesta team i know of LOL. are they cosplaying LCK shakespearean gameplay?


AniviaKid32

EG is always like this the first 10 minutes. They only come alive in the mid game


Juxee

Alive is kind of a stretch this game


Zarolto

Is Pastry on crack today?


sieer

Both of them are i guess, being surprised that you can get ahead without kills. Saying that abbedagge had question marks while being regarded as a top3 mid in Europe for a while…


Tachyoff

I think this might be his attempt at being more energetic?


AniviaKid32

He heard the criticism of his sleepy casting and is clearly overcompensating now lol


sieer

The casters are surprised that you can get ahead without fighting. Lovely region.


4716202

Fakerzuke powering through the shockblast, what a man


4716202

The instant flash into raptors was sick from Jiizuke


spazzxxcc12

i wish crumbzz mic would accidentally turn off like hais


Amumuglory

one na player in a game is so sadge


YCitizenSnipsY

I like watching Jayce being bullied out of lane


ggoggggogo

just ban kaisa fbi can't lane without her


gintokisamadono

Jayce game. GG


thecarlosdanger1

I don’t really think Ori is good rn, but happy to watch Abbedagge on a mage


thecarlosdanger1

Hmm dunno about leaving Gwen up to ban Lee. Assume the idea will be Ssumday weakside


Izento

Akali feared more than Gwen


4716202

Whatever happens Jiizuke vs Abbe is gunna be a banger


Izento

Time for the coinflip!


Mashtatoes

And DIG just got aced again.


PikaPachi

I haven’t seen anyone mention it, but isn’t Moonstone absolutely trash on Seraphine now? They nerfed the note interaction and the amount of healing so she doesn’t get that much value out of it anymore.


4716202

I think they tried to shift Moonstone to be more of an healing/shielding amplifier item but I dont know anyone who actually builds it. Seems like everyone that would be just takes Shurelyas


PikaPachi

I saw Aphromoo built it on Nami in one of his YouTube videos. Nami is my most played champ and I don’t think it’s very good compared to Shurelya’s as you said. It’s situational at best. I think Yuumi and Sona can use Moonstone the best. Yuumi is like old Seraphine that constantly has the uptime so she gets ridiculous healing with it. Sona is also very spammy with spells so she can keep it up too. I think in theory, it should be good on Soraka, but Shurelya’s is also good since Soraka requires better positioning than most enchanters.


Phoenixtorment

Fudge apparently practices 1v1 vs Perkz. What a hyperbolic timechamber!


Zarolto

Perkz getting to better himself against TheFudge, lucky guy.


rasterroo

LCS has felt so lackluster these past weeks. Maybe I am just bored of the picks or something, cause I personally don't find priority picks like Akali, Gwen, Veigo, etc very interesting. I probably just need to take a break until these picks eventually get phased out. Games haven't been that great either, so that doesn't help.


thorpie88

Doordash LCO starts tomorrow. Good chance we get Azir top again if you're looking for a different meta


Blockronic

What do you prefer? Azir vs Corki every game? I feel like this meta is fun to watch


Raynar7

LCS games switched from clown fiestas with Baron/Dragon flips to absolute snozefests with Baron/Dragon flips.


YCitizenSnipsY

What is Blabbers win rate on Olaf at this point?


Roseking

90% with 10 games


YCitizenSnipsY

sheesh


Mashtatoes

Yeah I couldn’t believe he lost a game either.


WOULD_QUESTION_MARK

i wonder what 2016 dardoch would say to neo after all that shit


Aggressive-Panic

Put Soligo back in. Yusui didnt look too hot


thewinggundam

Yusui was quite literally useless


Raynar7

Absolutely worth lane swap. Akali in LCS looks like different champion compared to other regions….that’s just sad


CreightonJays

Prior to today she had an 83% Win rate in NA


big12inch

Literally why lane swap? And INTO a Gwen of all champions. Like wtf did they honestly just turn their brains off this was shit. Ruined my whole day I waited all day for this fucking game


Raynar7

Especially when you lose both lanes after swap…


SnooGuavas8376

What's the point of Akali again into 4 bruisers with tank items?


big12inch

Dig sucks they just did nothing and rolled over, fucking pathetic


europeanmid

Dig did nothing whole game. Biggest highlight was that Fudge fight around sol drake.


Mashtatoes

C9 Perkz still in his 1-2 comfort zone.


YCitizenSnipsY

CLG gave C9 the best fight this weekend lol


Jimbabwr

This was not the summer split Cloud9 form I was promised..


Phoenixtorment

Akali and Viego losing. You love to see it.


hvngpham002

Gwen won though, so is it really worth it? /s


Phoenixtorment

2 steps forward, 1 step back ;p


C9-F1R3L0L1

That was a huuuuge stomp


aamgdp

So how fucking broken is Gwen?


Mashtatoes

Yes.


ricardooo2

The Fudge!!!


jolleyjg

Neo misclick cost dig any tiny chance they had at winning that soul fight


CoffeeLoverNathan

Suddenly ACE


YCitizenSnipsY

Akali isn't even an assassin when NA mids play her


SnooGuavas8376

I mean what she can do against 4 bruisers that just demolishes her in meele range?


Borigrad

Really is time to nerf Gwen.


cardmasterdc

That was the most disrespectful thing I have ever seen


nimrodhellfire

NA trying its hardest to make Akali look balanced.


bman10_33

Okay so 1) Gwen outrageously OP 2) rip neo think he was trying to level and ally casted R or something. I’ll take it though


SnooGuavas8376

TheFudge.


WhirlingDervishGrady

Fudge is cracked


CoffeeLoverNathan

The disrespect by Perkz ahahahaha


C9-F1R3L0L1

Fudge solo won the soul, GG


Mahelas

Neo solo won that soul


miguelhempit

They wouldn’t do shit even with neo ult


thomasf11

The Fudge


Zooki_Stardust

Neo accidentally ulting backwards may have just lost Dig this game, damn


yoitsthatoneguy

The game was over when they decided to do nothing for 10 minutes. They wouldn’t have won a fight against the item lead.


CoffeeLoverNathan

Daddy Fudge


DrJerryTeSquid

Is king going collector ?


ggoggggogo

did he just ult thin air ? I've had it with this region, might be the straw that broke the camel's back for me


Worluvus

Neo 😂


yoitsthatoneguy

Lolol Neo


Disclosure28

My eyes!


CoffeeLoverNathan

Neo??? Literally soul point LMAO


YCitizenSnipsY

Lets see if despite the large gold lead C9 manage to lose the the soul the way most team that stack 3 drags seem to always do


Averdian

Yusui to join the club of players making Akali look balanced? Looking like it, he's 50 cs down at 15 min


ggoggggogo

NA club : Akali, Jayce, Rengar


ShottedGun

Anyone know why Dig went Seraphine Leona bot?


Raynar7

Neo probably sick of right clicking

[удалено]


Pentagruel14

Sneaky deserved to get kicked. So did Licorice.


CallMeNahum

Sneaky was trash for 2 straight splits and deserved to be kicked


KingRayne

on the one hand, sneaky to Zven is pretty straightforward and obvious on the other, sneaky did have to lane with zeyzal for those two splits


CallMeNahum

Sneaky and Zeyzal were both mega bad


[deleted]

[удалено]


CallMeNahum

Cry more, Sneaky was giga washed and the team got much better without them


[deleted]

[удалено]


CallMeNahum

Your player will never play professionally again, I'm sorry to have to break this to you. Too washed, the game has completely passed him by


yoitsthatoneguy

Nope Pastry, that was C9’s own blue buff


spazzxxcc12

i wish the lcs would realize these two shouldn’t cast together. i don’t mind pastry, (crumbzz is a different story) but when put together they both feel like they’re just talking out of their ass especially crumbzz


KingRayne

why did they swap perkz and fudge on the scoreboard and not yusui/fakegod


Raynar7

Asked myself the same thing….


Raynar7

Team fight randomly on top river - yes please Team fight for objective like dragon - nope


sd_pinstripes

do drops still happen, or is there any reason to watch on lolesports?


Worluvus

I've watched nearly every game without a drop. Only reason to watch is to do the client esport missions


sd_pinstripes

mm watch 20 games for an icon that no one will ever use. thanks riot.


Worluvus

random 5v4 over scuttle grab at 7 minutes i love it


YCitizenSnipsY

NA mids really about to go 0-3 with Akali today. The true successor of NA Rengar


CoffeeLoverNathan

3k gold before 10 minutes l m a o


santilevy

Why are dig losing a 4v5 pre herald? This made no sense


TheCobraSlayer

Vulcan slightly cracked


Anthonysan

4v5 and C9 wins it. Game is already over.


Averdian

What the fuck is this 4v5 in top river a full minute before Herald even spawns lmao


Raynar7

That’s some peak League of Legends right there


LumiRhino

Ah FakeGod you can't be the first one to dive into a fight as Viego, if he's alive that fight actually should work out in DIG's favor.


Raynar7

Yusui getting bullied


ggoggggogo

Lmao jglers still buying pots That's how you know the meta is behind in NA


Krakusmaximus

what did they buy instead?


Mashtatoes

LEC junglers who bought pots today: XL Dan S04 Kirei MSF Razork VIT Selfmade AST Zanzarah MAD Elyoya SK Treatz G2 Jankos RGE Inspired FNC Bwipo LEC junglers that didn’t buy pots:


KingRayne

i checked a couple LCK games from this week and they all bought pots too, so..


Mashtatoes

Yeah, idk either.


sportsbuffp

Sad cuz I love Pastry but Crumbzz actually gives me tinnitus


Initium__novum

I can't stop seeing DIG QTPAY


DragonApps

Crumbs saying Seraphine solo lane when it’s obviously bot lane Seraphine…


Raynar7

Did he expect Akali or Viego to go bot?


C9-F1R3L0L1

Sera adc is still viable? Still DIG draft is broken asf


Sciipi

Both drafts are weird but Digs seems super strange. I’m not super confident in it but Trey can prove me wrong


Mashtatoes

I think it’s a solid strategy when you know you’re the underdog.


ffattt

C9 has a way better draft.
