2018 NA LCS Summer Split Week 2: Schedule and preview

Which teams can survive the NA LCS’s strange meta?

Riot Games

The first week of the 2018 NA LCS Summer Split has come to a close and everyone is gearing up for week two.

As for results, last week was pretty shocking for the NA LCS in 2018 in that no result was particularly surprising. Sure, Clutch took down a very strange C9 roster, and yeah, there was that weird game that ended with neither team’s Nexus dying, but other than that it wasn’t too out of the ordinary.

TSM looks like a new and more confident version of last year’s team, CLG looks like they can compete in this new and strange meta, while 100 Thieves, one of the most traditional teams in the league, seem to be struggling with all the champion weirdness. Meanwhile, Echo Fox have been absolutely basking in the new and wild meta, sending their top laner to play both bot and jungle so far in their two games. The only top team that did have a shocking result was Team Liquid who were absolutely demolished by Golden Guardians in a match TL looked completely unready to play.

This week’s NA LCS action features a few good match ups and should let us know exactly which teams can survive, no matter what the meta. You can watch all the matches from week two of the 2018 Summer Split on the Riot Game’s Twitch and YouTube channels, as well as on lolesports.com.
