These are the best League of legends teams in the world playing off against each other

So far i have seen some of the most amazing LoL gameplay i have seen in awhile and cant wait to see more of it.

ITS ALL OVER

I've never been able to get into MOBAs as a spectator sport. With Starcraft, I'm at least able to understand what's going on but MOBAs are incomprehensible to me.

#3 Posted by ToxicFruit (1717 posts) -

@Ravenlight: yeah i guess is see where you are coming from. If you don't now what the characters do it kinda just looks like a bunch of particles flying all over that place

If i don't see someone play Viktor I an going to be really mad.

#5 Posted by ToxicFruit (1717 posts) -

@scarace360: There have been some picks that you would not usually see in the earlier matches so that would not surprise me if Viktor would sneak in there.

I really liked the swain pick I don't see why he isn't picked more, maybe it's because he is so mana hungry?

Christ, the amount of viewers is just incredible. I have no idea why, but they must be doing something right.

#8 Posted by Christoffer (1742 posts) -

What, I haven't even noticed it. Is it big?

He is actually really strong, he gets mana from last hits and once he hits 6 he can stay in his lane ,kinda, forever. No idea why he is not picked more : /

@pnevares: That looks complicated as all hell!

#11 Posted by ToxicFruit (1717 posts) -

Did you catch that last match ?

I am usually not down with CLG but that last play was just incredible !

#12 Posted by connerthekewlkid (1798 posts) -

when does TSM come in and steamroll everybody?

#13 Posted by EthanielRain (755 posts) -

I haven't played this game in a long while, but damn...started watching right when CLG pulled out an awesome win and now my fingers are aching to get back into it. It really is an awesome game once you get past the initial learning curve.

I STILL LOVE YOU, NIV

@pnevares: When do they launch the nukes?

#18 Posted by ToxicFruit (1717 posts) -

ah okey thanks for the info

#19 Posted by mscupcakes (612 posts) -

I've never watched LoL tournaments before but I'm watching it now and it's surprisingly intense.

#20 Posted by ToxicFruit (1717 posts) -

@mscupcakes: Yeah, especially these matches. There have been some insane playes from all the teams.

Really wish i could stay up and watch group B :(

#21 Posted by mscupcakes (612 posts) -

@Tfruit: Yeah, right now I'm torn between watching the TNT or watching Group B. I guess we'll see how it goes!

#22 Posted by Saminougat (61 posts) -

Quarterfinals today (GMT -7)

  1. M5 vs iG 12:00
  2. TPA vs NaJin 14:00
  3. TSM vs Azubu 16:00

All these matchups are amazing, but I'm most eager to see how TSM does against Azubu.

#23 Posted by TobbRobb (4549 posts) -

@Saminougat: Inb4 they get their asses kicked.

Fucking crazy Koreans.

It'll be a quick embarrassing 0-2 exit for TSM. They're not on the same level of any of the remaining teams especially not AF.
#25 Posted by HeroicDrinkingSong (149 posts) -

I'm pulling for TSM. There the only real chance the NA scene has for victory.

#26 Posted by ToxicFruit (1717 posts) -

I think it is going to end up being M5 and Azubu standing in the end, they are the 2 strongest team in this game imo

#27 Posted by Saminougat (61 posts) -

@Hunkulese: @TobbRobb: You are right and it makes me sad.

@Tfruit: That would be the best possible way to end this tournament.

#28 Posted by ToxicFruit (1717 posts) -

And M5 keeps steam rolling everyone.

Man, it is always a treat to watch them play!

#29 Posted by scarace360 (4828 posts) -

Kids thats why you ban eve.

#30 Posted by Saminougat (61 posts) -

Alex Ich said after game “We just pick broken Heroes”.

M5 is broken and should be nerfed in next patch.

@scarace360: I not sure if i am happy or really really sad that she is coming back :S

btw do you know why Jayce is suddenly a common ban ? Riot has not really made that many changes to him since he came out but now suddenly he is considered one of the most OP champs in the game.

#34 Posted by TobbRobb (4549 posts) -

@Tfruit: Because he was always legitimately strong as fuck. No one famous picked him up until a few weeks after though. He's really hard to counter as well.

Because hes really strong he's not OP but he is strong also he is really hard to counter. Basically jayce shits on top.

#36 Posted by ToxicFruit (1717 posts) -

yeah i always thought he was really strong.

This kinda remind me of when Lee sin came out. No one bothered with him when he came out but when the pros started showing what he could do he started being first pick or ban.

Rengar is in that group as well now , would have loved him being allowed this tournament but i can understand why he is not here.

#37 Edited by TobbRobb (4549 posts) -

@Tfruit: I'm actually really happy he's not in it, because I hate his guts. :P

Stupid broken roar.

EDIT: Oh and the Anivia love is just fantastic. I always thought she was one of the best APs.

#38 Posted by ToxicFruit (1717 posts) -

@TobbRobb: i agree! anivia has not been getting enough love in the past tournaments.

But fucking Ezreal... I am so sick of seeing him xD

I know he is really strong but ugh.

#39 Posted by tunaburn (1879 posts) -

BOO LOL! DOTA MUCH BETTER! RAWR RAWR RAWR!

#41 Posted by scarace360 (4828 posts) -

Well now its TSM vs azubu lets see if TSM can carry north america.

#42 Posted by ToxicFruit (1717 posts) -

#43 Posted by President_Barackbar (3415 posts) -

I hope TSM takes the next one, I'm going to the World Championship and I'd love to be able to root for an NA team!

He wins every lane match-up, not OP at all.

He was talking about the good CLG. They're against WE after this set.

No dude he isn't you can shut him down but it is hard. Ive been having a good time against jayces with jax and riven top. Also if you don't like him just ban em you got 3 bans use them.

#47 Posted by ABK_92 (176 posts) -

I don't think TSM can come back. I'm hoping to see CLG EU or M5 take this. I don't want to sound racist but I would love for a none Asian team to win a big video game tourney like this for once.

#48 Posted by ToxicFruit (1717 posts) -

wow, I did not think Azubu could come back from that start !

That was amazing play from both teams!

#49 Posted by Azteck (7450 posts) -

The play from Maokai and Blitz in the end was really fantastic. Such a slick move. Hoping to see CLG take this personally though, not a fan of M5.

Well it was a 0-2 loss but it was far from embarrassing. A valiant effort against a team that may win it all.
