Now the big LoL leagues are underway, the action is heating up, and the second week offered plenty to talk about, whether that be Cloud9's fine form at the top of the NA LCS, or Jin Air Greenwing's disappointing run at the bottom of the LCK. Here's the round up of all the action:
The EU LCS
Last week we reported that G2 Esports was off to a flying start in the EU LCS, and they still are, sitting atop Group A of the EU LCS with three victories now. They defeated Misfits last week to get there, although Misfits sit close behind them with two wins and a loss. At the bottom of the group, however, sit Roccat, with no wins and three losses to their name, losing last week to both Misfits and Giants.
Unicorns of Love are also undefeated thus far, with three victories putting them at the top of Group B, just above H2K, whose loss to UoL puts them at two wins and a loss. Origen's loss to UoL and Team Vitality mean they are at the bottom of the table, though, so they'll be looking to claim a win against Splyce when they face each other this week.
The NA LCS
Cloud9 must have their head in the clouds over in the NA LCS, as they are undefeated with four wins, the only team to achieve that feat thus far, and this places them above three teams in second place: TSM, FlyQuest, and Phoenix1 (all on three wins and a loss).
Despite being undefeated last week, Echo Fox's two wins puts them in fifth alongside Immortals, with just as many wins as defeats. There's three teams sharing the seventh place spot below them, those being Team Dignitas, Team Liquid, and Counter Logic Gaming, none of them picking up any wins last week. They're still doing better than EnVyUs, though, who haven't recorded a single win.
Over in Korea, kt Rolster and SK Telecom T1 continue their unbeaten run at the top of the table, registering victories against Longzhu Gaming and ROX Tigers respectively. With two wins and a loss each, BBQ Olivers and Samsung Galaxy sit in joint third, just above Afreeca Freecs in fifth, although since they didn't play last week they're still on one win and one loss.
Longzhu Gaming, ROX Tigers, and MVP all have at least one win to their name, but Jin Air Greenwings and Kongdoo Monster are still without victories, sitting at the bottom of the table still, the only difference being that Greenwings lost another game to BBQ Olivers this week, whereas Kongdoo Monster didn't play.
What are your predictions for this week's action?
