Immortals introduce Evil Geniuses to the “League of Draven” with victory in week 8 of 2021 LCS Summer Split

Evil Geniuses have emerged in the LCS thanks to their newly formed roster that includes both new and veteran talent. Out of the top three that will start week 8 of the 2021 Summer Split, they are the only team to walk away with a win on day one. However, on the second day, they were the first to suffer a nasty defeat.

Immortals went away with a surprise win over Team EG in a losing game. While they struggled to maintain their lead in gold for most of the game, it was ultimately IMT’s focus on building their roster that was the deciding factor.

Team IMT has consistently shown throughout the season that they possess the synergy to rise to the top of the leaderboard, but have struggled to show that teamwork until recently. Based on Oracle’s Elixir, both Destiny and Xerxe are near the top of the highest kill participation players in the LCS at 75.5% each, only increasing that score with their performance today.

While the early game started off slow, the focus quickly turned to the ADC match between Danny and Raes. Danny’s early-game placement wrong made him a prime target for Thresh of Fate, leading to a quick gold lead for Raes’s Draven and a surprise purchase of Prowler’s Claw. But once Raes was online, he was unstoppable — even going so far as to shoot IgNar’s Tahm Kench twice. Raes went away with a large sum of 19,400 gold—the most in the game—Thanks to the huge bonuses that Draven received.

Despite EG’s gold and lead for most of the game, a poor teamfight near Baron transferred the odds to IMT, rewarding them with their second win of the weekend and the win 19th of the year. Destiny secured the game’s players the prize with an impressive performance against Thresh, which ended with KDA 0/0/12.

With this victory, IMT officially entered the Summer Playoffs round. After finishing tonight’s matches, the other teams are likely to advance with the condition of qualifying. IMT will end week 8 of the 2021 LCS Summer Split with a match against the first place team 100 Thieves tomorrow. | Immortals introduce Evil Geniuses to the “League of Draven” with victory in week 8 of 2021 LCS Summer Split
