It's finally here. The North American League of Legends Championship Series has returned for the Summer Split after just a six-week offseason. Last time out, Counter Logic Gaming beat Team SoloMid in a thrilling five-game series to decide the region's champion in Las Vegas.
Since then, CLG represented NA at the Mid-Season Invitational, performing surprisingly well and finishing in second place behind South Korea's SK Telecom T1. TSM, meanwhile, was forced to replace starting support Bora "YellowStar" Kim, who returned to Europe to play for the club he had spent the previous three years with, Fnatic. In now is Vincent "Biofrost" Wang, a former Challenger Series starter with Dream Team who is considered an up-and-coming North American prospect.
Biofrost will be thrown into the fire right away, facing off against Zaqueri "Aphromoo" Black, one of the best supports in the world, in the very first matchup of the season: a finals rematch between heated rivals.
At 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT), TSM and CLG will face off in a best-of-three series, followed by NRG vs. Team Envy (one of the new teams this split) later Friday night. Both games can be watched live here.
