League of Legends: TSM bag the LCS championship

TSM had been under scrutiny for their recent performances. Bjergsen’s Zilean had been TSM’s star performer and managed to take the team to the playoffs. However, one player alone can’t decide the fate of the team and it was assumed that TSM would go down.

 

TSM went on to prove critics wrong and bagged a victory that every player had a role to play in. Bjergsen’s Zilean and Broken Blade played a massive role in getting the first two rounds and looked very strong. However, there was a delay in the game due to technical issues that might have disrupted their run.

FlyQuest looked stronger and continued to play well after the technical delay with Santorin being the mastermind bagging two games in quick succession.

The last game was important for both teams. More importantly, TSM had won the first two games but failed to convert the aggressiveness and perform in the subsequent ones. FLyQuest, on the other hand, was looking towards a sweet three-game win to clinch the series.
