I think for a team like TSM this loss puts up a few question marks. I expect TSM to do well, but to lose vs the predicted 5th place team is a bit disappointing. Expectations were on TSM. How will they perform vs a predicted higher placed team like NRG or Immortals?

I'm personally happy CLG won, seeing how I like this CLG team. I wonder how CLG will continue performing. Both CLG and TSM will have predicted easy matchups tomorrow (DIG/Liquid).

Thanks to The_Nameless_Bard for the sig!

NRG and Immortals aren't better than TSM, and they will struggle with the same problems as TSM (that being having to figure out teamwork and strategy from scratch). This game doesn't mean much beside that one point towards 1st place seed.

Also, my personal viewpoint from that game was that TSM simply got outplayed on a macro level (P&B, map play), which I think does not take anything away from their future possibilities.

This might be the first time where I can say that NA has an actual chance against a stronger international competition.

TSM looks like the strongest, followed by NRG/Immortals/C9.

I think NRG will be the strongest of those 3 once they build up their synergy.

Immortals feels like third, so long WildTurtle performs again and Huni doesn't tilt.

C9 are most likely 4th, unless Rush puts everyone on his back while Jensen and Sneaky put on some of their best performances together with Rush's stellar early game.

CLG could be a strong team in NA, especially when summer rolls around. Outside of NA they won't accomplish a lot, most likely.


From the looks of the first game i think CLG is one of the top few in NA. TSM has potential but looked a little out of sync.

C9: Jensen and Sneaky are extremely good. Rush is also pretty good. I don't know what state balls is in right now. It's nice that they have their shot caller in the support role and their champ select expert as a coach (who hopefully will help hai improve mechanically and whatnot) I think support and jungle are the best places to put shotcallers since they usually have to keep their eyes on the whole map and keep track of objectives.

Beyond that, I hope Renegade will pleasantly surprise everyone but i'm expecting low/middle of the pack. And I really don't know enough about the other teams to say for sure where anyone will be.

Signature is from Ninja_Trigger's champion mastery thread!
New and slightly improved version is still up to date >HERE!<

Predicted to place 5th by who? Personally feel like that's probably too low.

BunnyFuFu is the support for C9, at least for the first game/week.

I think that was Jatt - incorrect, sorry. He put CLG on 3 - I'd like to know that as well

Why is there already a thread that I didn't notice? Whatever. I got the nicer looking one though.


Because you created a thread like 2 seconds before the LCS was about to start?

Basically MOBAFire.

I'm pretty sure the majority place CLG 5th, below TSM, Immortals, NRG and C). Riot's preseason rankings put CLG together with NRG in what I feel is 4th/5th. I feel like many people rate talent over synergy and communication, which is why many probably place CLG lower.

GP10 tier list. Places CLG 5th with good reasoning, and the writer is diamond and an analyst. He does mention CLG will most likely pace higher until other teams get their synergy and communication together.
