I agree 100%.

quote:

Throwing bans into Bjerg's champ ocean just isn't a good strat


What's funny is, when his pick wasn't in yet I got to thinking who he was going to play.. and when the Irelia was sent in, I was like ooohhhh. I had totally forgot about Irelia. I even remembered in an earlier TSM video this year he said Irelia was his favorite champ and the new Project Irelia was his favorite skin. I had a feeling he was going to pop off.

quote:

If I'm any other team playing TSM this split Sett, Rakan, Ornn, and Syndra are the must bans


Sett should be a given. Ornn I think is getting nerfed soon so that may be driven away from the meta. Syndra is a good one too because not only Bjergs best champ, she's super meta, and Bio plays a mean Rakan. I loled at the Zilean ban from FQ yesterday.

The roster has always had potential. I hope this weekend gives them confidence and some consistency.

consistency
I think this is more on the staff than the players. Just quit inting draft by trying to do too much and draft to the players' strengths with champs they're proven to perform on rather than trying to reinvent the wheel every week. I think they'll hone in on this more as playoffs approaches, but it hasn't been fun to watch this split. I understand the reasoning, but it looked like they pulled the trigger on a lot of different comps WAY too early this split. The team just had no idea how to play the comp that was drafted at times.

quote:

Zilean
I knew I was missing a ban. I'd honestly ban it too. Bjerg is too good on it. I would almost replace the Syndra for it if you were cramped for bans depending on what's available. Dive comps with Zilean seem like what would be TSM's bread and butter right now.

I liked Jatt's take on TSMs drafts the last few weeks, a lot of wrinkles being picked. This past week, they threw out just one wrinkle around the solo lanes(Zilean and Irelia) to keep players on comfort but also adding just a little bit of doubt of what could be coming. The team thrives around that, but not too extreme - see Maokai mid and Kayle top.

Getting back to play around their solo's like they did last spring and letting bot (which is an overall upgrade IMO) do their thing.

Dardoch has actually played pretty well so far. He hasn't gotten a whole lot of talk, but a lot of talk around Dardoch probably isn't deal anyway.

He sacrifices his own gains for the team a lot and it doesn't get noticed. I can't remember which specific game it was, but he straight up avoided taking a second jungle camp just so he could shadow Lee and basically be a walking ward in the early game. I love how he can give up resources like that and not lose the edge to engage even if he's personally at a slight deficit. He'll be the first one to die if the team as a whole isn't doing well, but it's an invaluable type of player to have.

New DD is a big change. Gonna be OP on a few champs no doubt. Haven't seen the exact teleport top buff yet.

That TP change for top is going to be a big thing.

It's jungle Shen time! I was already playing it a bit but it really relied on getting a good gank off early to get ahead because the clear time was kinda ass. His early level damage is ridiculous and he's a good in 2v2s with the right midlane. And once he's level 6 he can counter gank from anywhere on the map. Giving him a better clear might just push him past troll pick into a viable pick.

LCS is in Cali. I wouldn't put it past them to cancel the pro scene until further notice.

They banned media and fans, but it's continuing on.

Finals however seem unlikely to be in major venue and will just be held at empty studio.

Great timing to make spring irrelevant.

LEC spring split has been postponed indefinitely. Wouldn't be surprised if LCS does the same soon.
