Team Liquid Vs Cloud 9- Battle of point clickers
The final of NA-LCS will be an interesting match to watch as both teams priorities rest on getting the point and click champions. The team has one single style which can easily be determined after the pick/ban phases.
1. Lulu pick by TSM.
This will be the highest priority for TSM in pick and ban phase. The reason is the 2.5 seconds which is very useful in team fights as during a team fight when two champions are silenced for a total of 5 seconds the damage will be a great enhancement. The slow from the lulu ultimate is also useful and also the q slow. TSM understands the importance of lulu as no skill shot is required for 75 % of the potential of the champion. It should be a 100 % ban.
2.Nautilus for Cloud 9
This is cloud 9 priority pick because they want chain cc composition. The advantage of cloud 9 is the control on all the abilities is with one player and since if Hai calls the shot everything will go towards the enemy. Also since its a point and click abilities with a nice q follow up its a very useful for lemonation. Must ban for Nautilus. If Nautilus is banned he will try to pick morgana.
3. Gragas for both teams
The only tank other than udyr who can be a tank and gank before level 6. The ultimate is an amazing dis engage tool and the q max is a 99 % slow. Its closer to a binding.The seen and unseen abilities are what makes it dangerous. Neither of the team are brilliant enough to do the damage calculations properly.
4. TSM Fever
If you see all best of series vs TSM except the Samsung white series in the past year every single time the opposite team does something so much idiotic I have felt all the cold in the world hits your face. For example series vs Yoe flash wolves. When Wildturtle picked corki the yoe chose lucian won the lane and game hard. In the next two games they chose Corki and gave Lucian to TSM both times. The thing is wildturtle is a bad adc but he has been playing the game for almost 5 years now. The disrespect is huge there. When you play against TSM make proper picks and team composition.
5. Skill shot accuracy
Both Hai and Bjergsen make or break based on the skillshots they land. They have insane read on the map regarding the skillshots to hit and to make plays. There is one major difference Hai will not do anything one v one. Bjergsen does everything 1 v 1. So its going to be a situation dependant.
Best possible bans
TSM-Hecarim,Nautilus and Corki
Cloud9- Lulu,Gragas and Ahri
