TSM Snapdragon vs Counter Logic Gaming
The newest member of CLG’s starting line-up, Link’s performance on Syndra sets a high bar for future opponents to match. Convincingly winning his lane in kills and creeps slain, Link’s precision stuns and fantastic mechanics secures him the first LCS MVP award.
In the hotly contested first match of the NA LCS, CLG boldly declared their confidence in champion select by locking in Syndra and Urgot as their 3rd and 4th picks. After a well-executed first blood for CLG’s AD Carry DoubleLift, he immediately dominated his lane and set the pace for rest of the game. Despite TSM’s mobile defenses, CLG methodically grew their lead into the mid-game with fantastic performances from their new Mid Lane Link and Support Aphromoo.
Nail-biting teamfights gradually went in CLG’s favor as the famous Season 2 coordination of TSM never materialized. With CLG’s Syndra unreachable and Urgot laying down huge amounts of damage, a final teamfight in front of the baron pit ensured victory for CLG in the first ever League of Legends Championship Series match.
