Week two of the NA LCS gave us upsets to the undefeated teams and showed that anyone can beat anyone. Now in week three, there are four teams tied at the top of the standings with record of 3-1 — Counter Logic Gaming, Team Dignitas, Immortals and Team EnVy.
These certainly may not have been the teams people expected to be at the top coming into the split and it’s for that reason that they still have a lot to prove. But week three’s match ups should go a long way in telling us just how good these teams are.
The first standout match of the week is on Saturday when Immortals facing off against the struggling Cloud9. With Cloud9’s Spring Split runner up roster sitting at just 2-2, it would be a huge step in the right direction on their path to worlds to beat one of the league’s top teams. For Immortals though, this series represents a chance to prove they deserve their spot at the top of the league.
In a similar series on Sunday, Team SoloMid takes on Team Envy. TSM are just coming off of their most important, and impressive, win of the year against Counter Logic Gaming, but they still have a lot to prove. A match up against Envy, who has had easily the most dominant jungler of the split so far, should provide the perfect test to see if TSM are really back on track and if Envy is the real deal.
