Team EnVyUs has earned their first win in the League of Legends NA LCS Spring Split 2017. The second week having their full roster, including new jungler lira, proved to be the week that the team finally gelled together, and they defeated Team Liquid in a dominating 2-0 set.
League of Legends Team EnVyUs
Team EnVy has had a rough start to their Spring Split, starting with their new jungler having Visa issues that prohibited him from making it to the US in time for week one. Even with their starting roster, they ended week two 0-4. But in week three, the team is starting to look very different, and a whole lot more organized as they play. Game two against Team Liquid even had them down in kills almost the entire game, but they were still able to systematically apply enough pressure to take all three inhibitors without a single contest.
The poor showing for Team Liquid has some analysts and casters starting to bring up the elephant in the mid-lane for the organization. Just before the Spring Split began, they acquired veteran player LiNk, as a substitute mid-laner. With GoldenGlue failing to impress, it may only be a matter of time before the team tries out that substitution in a live game.
Meanwhile, a Phoenix rises…
In an earlier series today, Phoenix1 was able to clinch another win, going 2-0 against Immortals. This places them in second place, just an iota behind Cloud9, with a record of 4-1 to the leader’s 4-0. With a roster that includes former KT Rolster AD carry Arrow and former H2k mid-laner Ryu, Phoenix1 has arguably had an easy time this Spring Split, having yet to face off against any of the other top four teams.
The League of Legends NA LCS Spring Split 2017 continues tomorrow, with Counter Logic Gaming against Team SoloMid, FlyQuest against Team Dignitas, Team Liquid against Echo Fox, and Cloud9 against the newly invigorated Team EnVyUs. As usual, all matches will stream live via Twitch on NALCS1 and NALCS2.
