The teams of the North American LCS come into week six after what was effectively a bye week thanks to the Intel Extreme Masters tournament. While NA was originally scheduled to have a team in attendance, Cloud9 dropped out after suffering two difficult losses in week five and choosing to take that time to focus on the LCS competition instead. With a full week off to prepare, all eyes will be on the top of the table teams in North America.
New first place team TSM will add a new chapter to their rivalry with a surging Counter Logic Gaming on Saturday. While this match is unlikely to have immediate implications for Team SoloMid, a win here would firmly plant Counter Logic Gaming in the top five of the NA LCS.
After their losses last week to Team SoloMid and Phoenix1, Cloud9 have a lot to prove and the perfect place to prove it as they face off against the, recently struggling, FlyQuest on Sunday.
