The first day of the North American LCS Spring Playoffs were nothing short of spectacular, with the two lower seeds pulling off impressive comebacks against teams that were heavily favorited. Day two looked to be just as good, as Vulcan and Good Game University tried to continue their cinderella run through the playoffs. This time their opponents would be Team Solo Mid and Curse, respectively.
The first series of the day, between Team Solo Mid and Vulcan, could not be played by two teams as different as these. Team Solo Mid finished the regular season in first place, and were the dominant team in North America last season. On the other hand, Vulcan started the season off 0-5, and no one expected them to make it as far as they have. Needless to say, Team Solo Mid were the definite favorites, and they showed why in the first game, getting an impressive win. However, Vulcan was able to keep it together and win the second game, forcing a game three. Though Vulcan fought valently, Team Solo Mid’s experience and skill was simply too much. Team Solo Mid took the series and moves on to play in the finals tomorrow.
The second series, similar to the first, was played against two extremely differently ranked teams. The definite favorite was Curse, who lead the LCS most of the season, yet finished second at the end. Their opponent would be Good GAme University, who barely made it into the playoffs with a sixth seed. Even though Curse was the favorite, they were playing with a new player, Rhux, who took the spot from Elementz, who had just left the team. This roster change may have affected curse in a negative way, as GGU was able to win in a dominate performance in game one. Curse was able to bounce back, though, and just like every other series in the playoffs, the final semifinals series was sent to a third game. Curse was unable to keep the advantage in game three, however, and Good Game University closed out the game and clenched the upset.
With only one day remaining of the Spring LCS season, the excitement is mounting. The story revolving around the upcoming finals could not be any better, with Team Solo Mid, the old time power-house, facing off against the new, young, and incredibly impressive Good Game University team. These teams will be facing off tomorrow, not only for their chance at the Spring Season title, but also for a prize of $50,000.
