After three weeks of play, the NA LCS couldn’t be any less clear. Of the three teams that sit at the top of the league with a 5-1 record, only one — CLG — was “supposed” to be there, while the other two — Team Dignitas and Immortals — are being treated like their eventual failure is a foregone conclusion. But is that really fair?
Week four seems tailor made to answer that question, or at least, begin to. The week begins with a match up between Immortals and Counter Logic Gaming. The two teams made waves in the off-season by trading junglers a move that, despite early trepidation from fans, seems to have made both teams significantly better. This will be the two teams first chance to face each other since the trade and the first time one of them has the ability to pull into sole occupation of first place. Immotals will face off against the other top three team — Team Dignitas — at the end of Saturday as well.
Team Dignitas will face another top tier opponent when they take on Cloud9 to close out the week. With Dignitas continuing to rise in the standings, despite low expectations entering the split, and Cloud9 still struggling, this should be the perfect match up to test both teams and see just how good Team Dignitas can be this Spring Split.
