I can't believe C9 hosed up a 3 inhib push so poorly. They had the perfect - and, frankly, only - opportunity to end the game there, but they let a Sivir/Janna/Nunu comp go to 45+ minutes with a full AD draft instead.

TSM is the fifth team to qualify for World's and I'll update the OP again when the next one qualifies which is I think another Wildcard region tonight

Meanwhile China is still in their regular season, get your poo poo together fam.

just for the record c9 has literally never missed worlds. but yeah if only we could get rid of tsm always being at worlds!

I'll settle for either missing worlds for once. IMT/DIG are the most likely to make worlds out of the newer teams.

E: oh nvm TSM already qualified i forgot.

If TSM wins next week whoever wins the game with IMT will also qualify for worlds.

It's still genuinely unreal to say that Dignitas has the cleanest Baron plays in the entire Western LCS, and, to be frank, are probably in the running for some of the cleanest Barons internationally. They always seem to know exactly when they can use it to force an engage, when to disengage, when to turn, etc. It's really impressive to watch.

They're only so clean because other teams in NA/EU are so sloppy. There's a lot of Korean teams who won't even bother with Baron unless there's a 100% chance they can take it, and a couple who have such amazing vision control that nobody can even get close to Baron without getting interrupted.

of course that first baron in the last game was really loving atrocious, even if they hadn't lost the fight and the baron they lost control of the mid wave twice because they were trying to do a baron dance when they didnt have a mid tower and c9 did, and were continuously giving up the angle on mid making it impossible for them to regain mid control, which again they were losing frequently bc the lane was pushing against them

they had to explicitly posture from the mid lane to make that weird rear end call work since they had to constantly keep mid control without the tower versus a team that had one

Ya dig has had great barons this whole split which is weird to say since the dig baron curse has carried through many different iterations.

The baron where Sneaky got a triple was being forced a wee bit too much. They disengaged off it like 2-3 times. The next time they did they just focused on baron with Sssumday/Keane zoning off which was what they should have done in the throw baron.

He'd been rubbing his forehead and looking pale, so I think it was just the insane pressure of game 4 provoking his anxiety to the point that he got nauseous and had to take a breather.

ya i noticed the weird tics he did but I don't think it was because of this match. He has played at worlds and has been 0-2 in gauntlet/playoffs before so being down here isn't the end of the world. He has been in way higher pressure situations.

I am guessing he had some sickness or personal thing before this game.

they had a really sluggish and bad start trying to acclimate the rookies to the team, which is similar to what newbee and jdg did except instead of playing 40 combinations of players they stuck with the rookies and let them work through the growing pains

Of course KT got reverse swept, of course.

LMS region is really consistent in who ends up winning, I feel like I've been waiting for one of those lower teams to break through for like 4 years and it probably isn't ever going to happen.

It was pretty fun though. Seeing a Trist unable to peel of Camille/J4/Galio was very satisfying. Also locket needs to get nerfed. Cassio was doing 0 dmg thanks to locket. Imo Perkz had zhonyas/seraph's shield he should have just tried to go on Kobbe trade 1v1 or try to make his tanks peel back instead of diving zven.

ad comps in general are awful unless you are a korean team or way superior than the other team.

I hate this jhin pick. It does nothing in the current meta imo. Too much engage/dive for him and his build isn't as strong as before. You go I.e>Shiv you don't do as much dmg in lane or you go Lethality/Armor pen which is only good for lane. Also don't see Jhin doing any dmg to J4 or Cho late game.

Jhin is so useless. Sivir/Thresh would get countered by Cait/Morg but you can still hold turret easily and scale as hard as the cait or harder.
