Looking to see how Doublelift does after playing against Korea. Will be fun watching WildTurtle too. I doubt there will be any meta changes but looking to see aggressive starts like Korea. Wanna see how the new top lane for CLG works out too

I'm anxious to see if the meta will revert back to what is used to be after the jungle changes.

Yea, personally I'm looking to see how well Curse does now that they have a legitimate top tier support. I think Cop has a chance of being WAY better this season now that he'll be working with such a good support.


But I also think Cloud 9 is going to be in the top 4 all season long. All through the Spring Split, the commentators all referred to "the top 4" being CLG, Curse, Dignitas, and TSM. I don't think they'll be able to do that this season. Cloud 9 will be up there the entire time.

Yea, I actually don't know whether they'll be playing on patch 3.8 or not today.

For as much as they delayed patch 3.8 on the Live Servers, that the final patch day coincides with the first day of the Summer Split kind of makes me think they will be playing on 3.8...

Cop is definitely a beast. I would put Curse and TSM at the big 2 that will dominate fosure. Isn't Velocity the new team?

Cop was already quite consistently good...
Wildturtle is gonna continue to dominate and their bot lane will carry the team through any bad times. And I'm not sure if Team Coast will be able to repeat their performance, but I hope they will.
CLG had that major overhaul, and we'll have to see how they do... but I thought Nientonsoh was and is one of the best ADCs. I remember that match where he went 14/0 and had over 400 CS at 37 minutes with Tristana. The LCS caused me to play more Tristana . Nientonsoh has some of the best mechanics and I think HotShot made a good choice in recruiting him for top lane, and I think CLG will be able to succeed easily.
Curse will be able to succeed well with Edward, and Cop may be able to challenge Wildturtle at ADc. I think Dignitas will drop just because the other teams may be gaining ground on them after recruiting more players... personally I think the top 4 will be 1. TSM, 2. Curse, 3. CLG (Curse vs. CLG will be close), 4. Cloud 9 or Team Coast pulling off the upset. I really don't believe in Vulcun*, and I'm not sure about Velocity. They are pretty good though...

Cop is a pretty good AD... he just hadn't been so great at the C part of the role. There was a match where he was like 14-2 as Twitch and still wasn't carrying. He always played too passively in my opinion, and I say this as someone who likes Curse...

Velocity eSports and Cloud 9 HyperX are the two new teams this season. They defeated Team MRN and Quantic Gaming, respectively, to earn their spots. Team Dignitas and Counter Logic Gaming both had to play in the promotion series as well, but won their series so they could remain in the LCS. Team Coast is GGU from last season. They were renamed.

Im a big TSM fan, because i love their top laner Dyrus. But im honestly most excited to see Cloud 9's appearance in this.They finally made into the LCS and its an entire team composed of soloQ legends. Can't wait to see how they perform against the older teams.
