The NA LCS Finals kick off on Sunday as Summer Split number one seed, Team SoloMid takes on number two seed, Immortals.
For Immortals the series is likely to come down to whether or not they can get some early leads by containing the carry pressure posed by Team SoloMid’s stars, mid laner Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg and AD Carry Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng. An early lead would help give Immortals a much needed leg up in teams fights and force TSM into an uncomfortable position.
Team SoloMid, on the other hand, are going to likely pick hyper scaling champions for the carries as a way to off-set a possibly slow early game. This should help put them in the best possible position in the mid game to leverage their impressive teamfight prowess, as well as answer any possible split pushes from IMT’s top laner, Lee “Flame” Ho-jong.
The series will be a best-of-five and will be broadcast at 3 p.m. ET and will be watchable on Twitch, as well as Youtube.
