    League of Legends’ IEM problem

    Getting teams to go to Intel Extreme Masters Oakland has been a struggle. Whether it’s NA teams like Counter Logic Gaming, Immortals, or Team SoloMid stating that they wouldn’t attend (and then reneging on that in the TSM’s case) or only mid-tier teams from other major regions making their way to the tournament, most fans are disappointed by the lineup at the premier offseason tournament. In the past, IEM tournaments have been big deals.

    A true Wildcard team, they came into the 2016 League of Legends World Championships as heavy underdogs. Most considered them in the bottom two of the 16 teams represented at the tournament, right alongside fellow Wildcard INTZ e-Sports. No one could have expected how well they were going to do…including ANX mid laner Michael “Kira” Garmash.

    ROX GorillA: ‘It’s definitely not the case that Korea will for sure win the World Championship.’

    The ROX Tigers were supposed to dominate Group A at the 2016 League of Legends World Championships. Support player Kang “GorillA” Beom-hyeon says the competition was something the Korean roster wasn’t quite ready for. The biggest shocker of the tournament — and probably in the history of competitive League of Legends — was their defeat at the hands of Wildcard roster Albus NoX Luna.

    Predictions for Week 2 of the 2016 League of Legends World Championships

    There are no undefeated teams at the 2016 League of Legends World Championships. Worlds 2016 may be the tournament of legendary AD carries, but the position to watch in Group B is decidedly the mid lane: Yi Tang “Maple” Huang on Flash Wolves, Nicolaj “Jensen” Jensen on Cloud9, Kang “Athena” Ha-woon and Kang “Baeme” Yang-hyun on I May, and, of course, Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok on SK Telecom T1.

    CLG loses to Albus NoX but beats ROX Tigers

    Back at the 2016 Mid-Season Invitational, Counter Logic Gaming dropped a game to SuperMassive, the Wild Card representative at the tournament. The next day, they came storming back and brought down defending World Champions SK Telecom T1. The difference between the two games was nearly shocking.

    After upset loss to CLG at League of Legends Worlds, G2 has reason to panic - and reason to relax

    North America struck first blood at the 2016 League of Legends World Championship Thursday with Counter Logic Gaming upsetting European squad G2 in the first game of the tournament. Vacation memes aside, G2 looked lost in their first game, as Jake “Xmithie” Puchero ran over them with a surprise Olaf pick. Considering the strength of Korea’s ROX Tigers and the weakness of Wild Card team Albus NoX, G2 vs. CLG was largely considered to be the battle for 2nd seed out of Group A. This first game was going to be vital for either team hoping to get out of the Group stage.

    Here's how CLG can beat TSM at the NA LCS playoffs (but they probably won't)

    With the likes of Cloud9, Immortals, and the near-unbeatable Team SoloMid all stepping up their game in the offseason, CLG has fallen out of their top-tier form of last split. CLG is going to have to find a way to beat them. Rather than swap as soon as the game starts like in previous patches, CLG has opted to wait out the 5-minute turret protection timer, hoping for an early advantage in laning.
