The hype is real for the last NA Game of the Week for the regular season. Team SoloMid and Immortals will be duking it out on Friday at 6 p.m. EST.
Only one team can end up in first place and both teams really need to win in order to grab that spot.
While this isn’t an aged rivalry like Counter Logic Gaming vs. TSM, this is a still a match for the ages. What happens when two North American super-teams collide?
You can see Riot’s cool hype video for the match below.
Both teams have pretty different play styles, showing that teams can get to the top using different strategies.
TSM has a more well-rounded team composition, with top-laner Kevin “Hauntzer” Yarnell and jungler Dennis “Svenskeren” Johnsen being able to play both aggressive and tank champions.
Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg and Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng are both known for her high mechanical skill levels for their roles. Vincent “Biofrost” Wang, the rookie support, has proved to everyone that he’s a valuable asset to the team.
Immortals sports a hyper-carry team, with any of the players able to play aggressively to throw the team on their back and carry. Seung-hoon “Huni” Heo and Ui-jin “Reignover” Kim are known as a duo from Fnatic that took the LCS scene by storm. They both have extremely flexible champion pools and can easily pick champions that peel or burst.
Eugene “Pobelter” Park is a veteran who also a huge champion pool to pick from. While he’s typically out-shined by Huni and Reignover, he’s still important to the team.
Jason “Wildturtle” Tran and Adrian “Adrian” Ma form a perfect bot-lane duo, with Adrian giving Wildturtle exactly what he needs in order to outperform the enemy bot-lane.
The last time the two teams fought, TSM 2-1’d Immortals, with the last game having a less than 2,000 gold difference. Doublelift jumped ahead early on Lucian, with four kills before 11 minutes. After that, Wildturtle on Ashe had very little ability to catch up.
With the amount both teams have improved throughout the split, we just don’t know who will be taking the win.
