In game three of the day, LCS fans enjoyed a great lecture from Cloud9 as head coach Nick “LS” De Cesare made a unique mid lane enchantment pick in the match. of the team with Evil Geniuses today.
Star mid laner Fudge is tasked with mid lane Soraka, even though it’s his first time playing her professionally League of Legends stage. Starchild is complimented with Olaf, Camille, Aphelios, and Thresh, which give her lots of high-damage allies to power up their teamfights. Although the early game was a bit difficult to deal with Jojopyun’s Viktor pick, Soraka’s true strength showed as the multiplayer started.
All Fudge needs to do is constantly heal his carry teammate, while Olaf runs wild in the enemy backline and Aphelios tearing apart the nearest opponents. EG Impact’s top laner did his best against Tryndamere, but there was too much power left for him and his teammates to counterattack.
In the final teamfight of the match, EG took down Fudge in a winning situation. However, C9’s new gunner – Berserker remains the same. He then blasted EG with a deadly series of chakras, ending with a match-determining triple kill. He finished with the title of Player of the game, racking up eight lives and five assists without dying.
Cloud9 have now used two unique picks in their team composition, first picking Ivern mid lane against the Golden Guardians and now Soraka. Some fans have been excited to see LS philosophies in action on the big stage, and his strategies have been pretty effective in the LCS so far.
EG, on the other hand, will now have to return to the drawing board and plan next week’s matches against Team Liquid and Immortals. They will also need to prepare for crazier picks from Cloud9 if they face them in the future, like in the knockouts.
