Midseason Showdown begins in earnest for Cloud9
For those of you still unawares of most things LoL, the Mid-Season Showdown is the next natural step of the so-called Spring season of the North American LCS. Only the best six teams from its original group stage get to participate in this special mini-tournament, taking place between the days of March 20th (last Saturday) and April 11th, and these include the aforementioned Cloud9, their latest game rivals 100 Thieves, TSM, Team Liquid, Dignitas and Evil Geniuses.
Cloud9’s latest 3-0 victory over 100 Thieves further cemented their position at the very top of the rankings, where they occupy the 1st place with a 13-5 record, followed by Team SoloMid on second’s, who just yesterday suffered a bad defeat (3-1) at the hands of Liquid. Thus far, TSM’s Spring record counts a total of 12 wins and 6 losses.
According to the statements made by media celebrity/C9 member Vulcan to the folks at Dot Esports, C9’ Lock-in success can be attributed in large part to new top-laner Fudge, who at only 18 years of age has impressed critics with his ingenious use of ‘weak-side’ tactics, as applied to the virtual LoL field:
“Fudge plays differently from Licorice… He likes playing weakside more, he’s willing to take less resources, and I think it’s good and [a] bad thing. That’s something we got punished for a lot in the Lock-In.”
That said, Vulcan noticed some problems rising in the near distance, as Cloud9’s next rival is none other than Team Liquid, who happen to have a much stronger notion of early game strategy: “I think we need to get our early game sorted out against TL… They [a] very strong, early-game team, and they do punish teams through laning phase and getting leads with that.”
Action resumes March 27th, with a game between TSM and Evil Geniuses, and 100 Thieves will try for a come-back against Dignitas on the 28th.
