Day one of the matchups for week two was Echo Fox and TSM. It was a bloody fight going 25-18 in kills in favor of TSM, who ultimately won the game. Zven somehow came out alive with a 9/0/10 stat line on Ezreal to star for Solo Mid.
C9 and Golden Guardians played next. C9 romped to an easy win over the struggling Golden Guardians. Nisqy went 5/0/6 on Zoe to star for C9 in the win.
Team Liquid and 100 Thieves played next. It wasn’t as close as one would think between two of the better teams in NA. Liquid got four kills apiece from Jensen and Double lift in an easy win.
Flyquest battled CLG next. Powerofevil showed why he was a prized off-season pick up in this game. Using Orianna he went 5/0/4 carrying CLG to their first win of 2019.
Clutch gaming and Optic played last on day one. Dardoch played a 5/0/3 Lee sin to pace Optic to a win over Clutch.
Day two started with Team Liquid and Clutch. Liquid pretty much kept the same formula winning in easy fashion against Clutch. Double lift stood out again as TL’s best in the victory.
Golden Guardians and 100 Thieves took the rift next. 100 won a later game team fight and took a baron to gain a push to find victory. Bang showed off on Ezreal going 6/1/8.
Echo Fox and Optic battled next. Apollo led the way in an easy win for Echo Fox, going 4/0/6 on Kai’sa.
C9 and CLG met next. CLG took six dragons and used that to gain a led and the win. Stixxay went 4/1/5 to carry CLG to the win and an even record.
The final match of the day was TSM and Flyquest. A late baron steal and great play by Wildturtle and Pobelter paced Flyquest past TSM to advance to 3-1 on the split.
The surprises keep coming this season. It might be early, but the field feels wide open. Can’t wait to see whats next.
