The end of the League of Legends North American Super Week signifies a return to form for the top teams of the States.
Cloud 9 and Team SoloMid, the perennial favorites, both ended with 4-0 records, while the rest of the teams are left to jostle for position to avoid relegation. For now, that looks like a three-way tie between Coast, Evil Geniuses, and Ex Duris Gloria, who are falling further and further behind the pack.

Curse, the gatekeeper right now to avoid relegation, threw down a monster 3-1 to stave off any signs of weakness. Could their recent rostering of Michael “Bunny FuFuu” Kurylo, a relatively unknown support player, be the cause? Whatever the case, Curse is on the rise, and fans are cheering the rebounding team.
In one of the most impressive showings in North America all year, Team SoloMid rallied around substitute mid laner/team owner Andy “Reginald” Dinh. He’s not our MVP this week, but you’ll note that every single other position is occupied by a TSM player. This dream team had their best weekend yet, ending with a 2003 gold-per-minute income over the four games. Given that their income sets a record high for the season, I’d say they deserve their first place seating and likely No. 1 seed into playoffs.
