Few hours ago TSM faced Cloud9 in NA LCS regional gauntlet for the last spot to represent North America in World championship this year.
It’s probably safe to say that no one thought it would be a 3-0 sweep, though, nor that TSM would play quite as poor as they did. Sure, C9 surprised them with an audacious top lane Hecarim, but that doesn’t excuse just how badly TSM were routed today by their long-time rivals.
Cloud9 didn’t play as well as we’d hope from a now Worlds-qualifying team. But Cloud9 still looked at least a little better than they did in their battle for the NA LCS title against Liquid last week where they all but crumpled.
With that victory, Cloud9 aims to surprise North American fans for another year at Worlds by being the region’s third seed.
