I feel bad for Splyce. Can't see them finishing anywhere besides 4th, with 1 win at best.

Wouldn't it be entertaining if a Wildcard team made it ouf of groups? Nearly as entertaining as if SKT would beat ROX. Again.

Thanks to The_Nameless_Bard for the sig!

Seems like Albus NoX Luna has a chance of making in out of groups, we'll just have to see.

So what I'm trying to figure out is the best teams macro play looks amazing in some games and it looks like they don't know where the f they are going in other games.

Is that simply because the other team is matching them move for move in some games and not in others?

I'm glad they put Meteos on something other than Lee Sin ye gads. He used to be quite good at Elise, but they aren't picking it for him. Is that because they are trying to keep Impact on a carry oriented Top laner? Point though that he is earning a niche Zac ban every game. What the hell did he do to other teams in scrims with Zac?

Doublelift....I sure hope Bjergsen gets his voice back soon so he can tell DL not to farm in a side lane past the river. smh

Loving Likkrit's picks and play on ANX. I'm going to kill you all Brand support and Tahm Kench. And the casters re the Brand support - 2nd most damage in the game, but please note that he bought a Sightstone as his first item. Sweet, sweet vision. XD

Mata's Alistar - holy cow! I don't imagine he will get that again.

Huhi's Aurelion Sol - holy star dragon!

Smeb's Kennen - goodbye enemy team.

Faker's Syndra - Jensen bodied by Faker.

Svenskeren's Lee Sin - has been beast

Aurelion Sol - seems like something the enemy teams are not prepared to deal with, which seems odd to me. Yeah, it would have been hard to predict Huhi's level 1 Ghost enabled roam that got PraY ?and? GorillA, but you would think someone would have come up with some strats to deal with his overall capabilities.

And the pairing with Caitlyn seems to work really well.

I was hoping that Faker would pick something like Ahri, or Fizz, or Zed into to it, but he first picked Cassiopeia.

Hoping we see a lot more of the TSM that showed up vs SSW or the 2nd half of the Splyce game than the TSM that showed vs RNG, though to be fair Mata played out of his mind.

When you support the team by killing people using Brand, Zyra, Vel'Koz, Xerath, and so on. And they have more damage than your midlaner. And hell, that support has a Sightstone and Sorcerer's Shoes on his/her/its inventory.

Also, Likkrit got his first assist on that game with Brand within 37 minutes.
Sig made by me!

This is already probably the most entertaining Worlds I have seen so far.

The Favourites are looking as beatable as were predicted to win it all
The Wildcards are stronger than they have ever been
Every Single team since has a chance to get out of groups (Even G2 and Splyce although it is a long shot)
There has been some major surprises already and I would not be surprised if we see more this week too

And the best part is whoever actually get to the quarterfinals will all be legitimate contenders to win this year Worlds
