LCS Superweek continued with its second day of games.

Day 2 of the Superweek for the 2023 LCS Spring was looking like a slow one. As we got closer to the end of the first round robin, the day did not feature too many games between top-of-the-table teams, nor between teams at the bottom of the league. The biggest matchup was scheduled for the opening as a struggling Team Liquid took on the Evil Geniuses on their rise to the top.

Other teams to keep up during the day were Dignitas and Immortals, as going 0-3 during the Superweek would be disastrous for their playoff chances. Especially Dignitas who still haven’t found their first win, even with IgNar joining the team.

EG vs TL

The first game of the day was home to one of the most chaotic early games we’ve seen this split so far. It had everything from jungle ganks, 2v2 kills, objective fights and even a solo kill by FBI on Yeon. When the dust settled, EG had a small gold lead. But it wasn’t that big of a lead, and they weren’t able to stack drakes either. So once the mid game hit and the game started to slow down their poke-oriented composition had trouble in teamfighting when they couldn’t find angles to poke.

TL took a Baron and had a good chance to siege the enemy base, but a couple of mistakes during that siege gave EG the fight they were looking for. This fight proved to be a disaster for TL as the game kept slipping out of their control. Even with Summit dominating the side lanes, EG’s poke started to stick on TL members and they started losing ground. A couple of crucial individual mistakes gave EG an opportunity for a Baron, and the siege to end the game.

  • Teams: EG 1 – 0 TL
  • Time: 44:40
  • Kills: 23 – 12
  • Turrets: 10 – 8
  • Gold: 86.4k – 77.5k
  • Dragons: 2 – 4
  • Barons: 1 – 2

IMT vs C9

Another hectic early game as both teams looked for early ganks. The game was going even in kills and objectives until a great Teleport cancel from Diplex gave C9 a big win in a bot lane fight where Fudge’s Jax found three kills. After that play, C9 pushed for both tier-two side lane turrets with their fed top laner and weren’t afraid to dive turrets, so their gold lead suddenly exploded to over 7k with a 20-minute Baron.

Thanks to the first drake going to IMT, C9 didn’t have the Soul and with the first Baron too early to end the game, they had to wait around for a bit. They almost overstepped around the enemy base once or twice, but they were ahead enough that it did not matter. They just waited for the next Baron spawn and IMT to contest, and just aced them to end the game in a clean matter.

  • Teams: IMT 0 – 1 C9
  • Time: 28:44
  • Kills: 5 – 17
  • Turrets: 2 – 11
  • Gold: 45.7k – 57.1k
  • Dragons: 1 – 3
