We were back with a bang this week as Summer Split of the EULCS got underway. Clashes with Misfits and new blood, Ninjas in Pyjamas waited us, and after blistering playoff form the team was looking to hit the ground running following a hard grind during the break.
First up Thursday was MSF who brought a new jungler in the form of ex-ROCCAT talent. The addition of Maxlore looks like it will add a new dimension of synergy, particularly on the top side with fellow countryman, Alphari. Not that it worried sOAZ. After the early pick Kennen got locked in for the MSF top, the Frenchman responded with the titan that is the new Galio and with Broxah on a favoured pick in Elise, the two were quickly able to shut down the lightning assault pressure and seize a stranglehold.
Meanwhile in botlane, Jesiz grabbed his won powerpick in Thresh, hitting endless hooks and setting up Rekkles for the steady scaling that Tristana needs. As MSF held their own in the early game, by minute 20 they were struggling to cope with our engages.
The dominance followed into game 2 as superb macro play from the boys drove us to the fastest game of 2017 at 23 minutes and 16 seconds. Rightfully so, Jesiz took the first Summer Split MVP award!
