Counter Logic Gaming takes down Team SoloMid in classic NA LCS final

New, 3 comments

CLG repeats as North America's champion and will advance to MSI.

Riot Games

For the second split in a row, Counter Logic Gaming stands on top of North American League of Legends. It wasn't quite as decisive as Summer's 3-0 sweep of Team SoloMid in the finals, but CLG proved itself as the best team in North America with a 3-2 win over TSM in Las Vegas Sunday.

The series started with one of the most dramatic games in North American history, as a back-and-forth match ended with super minions winning the game for CLG. TSM took game two after picking away Darshan's Poppy, but Darshan got the champion back in game three and CLG took the game and the series lead. TSM won the fourth game, but Stixxay's Rageblade Tristana helped carry his team to a dramatic fifth game victory and the NA LCS crown.

Now, CLG advances to the Mid-Season Invitational, where it will be joined by Taiwanese champions Flash Wolves and European champions G2 Esports. MSI will take place in Shanghai from May 4 to May 15.
