Springs LCS is finally winding down, and the battle for playoff position is tighter than ever.
Counter Logic Gaming, Good Game University, Vulcan, Team MRN and Complexity are all fighting to get into the playoffs as wild cards, and with only 5 games left, each game will be as intense as ever. While the aforementioned teams are fighting for their chance to be in the playoffs, Curse, Team Dignitas and Team Solo Mid will be fighting for a BYE week, giving them the opportunity to scout out the wildcard matches.
Curse will win LCS Spring and go on to a bye week before playoffs with a win over GGU today, and Team MRN on Thursday. Although with internal fighting in the team, I could be completely wrong. (Win vs GGU, Win vs MRN, Loss vs DIG, Win vs COL, Win vs Vulcan)
Team Dignitas will wrap up their season in 2nd place, just falling 2 wins behind Curse. I feel Team Dignitas has slowed down towards the end of the season, but remains a force not to be trifled with. (Win vs COL, Win vs CLG, Win vs CRS, Win vs Vulcan, Win vs TSM)
Team Solo Mid will end up in 3rd place, just barely miss the bye week. (Win vs MRN, Win vs CLG, Win vs Complexity, Win vs Vulcan Loss vs GGU, Loss vs DIG)
Counter Logic Gaming
Counter Logic gaming will solidify their 4th seed Thursday with a win over Vulcan. (Loss vs TSM, Loss vs DIG, Win vs Vulcan, Win vs MRN, Loss vs GGU)
Good Game University will continue their momentum into this week, winning big in bottom 4 matches. I feel like their play has vastly improved and roster changes have made a huge difference. This is the sleeper team to watch for in the playoffs. They are hungry, and wanting to show the world what GGU is really about. (Win vs COL, Loss vs CRS, Win vs MRN, Win vs Vulcan, Win vs CLG, Win vs TSM)
Team MRN will limp into the 6th seed, pushed forward by poor performances by Vulcan and Complexity. I feel they will easily be swept under the rug by whomever they play in the 1st round of LCS playoffs. (Loss vs TSM, Win vs Vulcan, Loss vs CRS, Loss vs CLG, Win vs Complexity)
I do have a feeling though, that after last week, CLG COULD, I repeat, COULD wind up as the bottom seed. I don’t feel like that gut instinct is good enough to warrant me writing them off in my predictions though. CLG still hasn’t picked up the pieces, and a poor showing this week will solidify their bottom seed, pinning them up against TSM. That’s for another post though.
Thanks for reading.
