TiP lost the first game of the series against Team Liquid and they decided to go with a very unique compsoition. Keep in mind that TiP has one of the best if not the best top-jungler sinergy from the West, and that duo is formed by two korean players and top soloq players on both Korean and North American server. They decided to go with the Shen and Evelynn which for itself is already one of the best combos to dive on teams, specially against a Juggermaw composition, and to that they added the Orianna+Ashe AOE CC and a very special Soraka that surprised me a lot.
Soraka is a champion that didn’t see play in the NA LCS for 1 year and 3 months or so and it fits very well TiP‘s playstyle of forcing fights with Impact and Rush going in and Adrian staying in the back healing them and allowing some tower shots to hit them since they could be easily restored back up.
TiP took a while to finish the game but it was basically Rush going ham and building a lot of damage early-mid game to make ganks more effective, he would go with 7 kills on the first 30 minutes with multiples Stand United used on Evelynn, he could destroy any champion he saw on the early stages of the game, just what Rush likes doing.
Theses series couldn’t be more exciting …
