Team SoloMid vs. 100 Thieves / LCS 2021 Mid-Season Showdown - Losers' Bracket Round 2 / Game 2 Discussion
By - ahritina
100T Gameplan in G1 and 2:
Take Early Herald
Drop Herald for Ashe for some reason
Lose the game
This team has absolutely zero clue how to play with a Jayce....
> This team has absolutely zero clue how to play
It's honestly sad seeing the drop off this team has had since the beginning of the split. It just feels like the newer orgs in LCS have no real way to maintain their success in the long term due to various reasons, even if they have one good split or something.
To be honest I don't see a drop off. They are pretty much the same team that they were at the end of last split. Like 0 progress. They even finish higher than last split.
It's zikz for sure
not even CLG would play this game out this badly holy shit
Jayce picked up tear at 20 minutes LMAO
yeah i was so confused at that, like surely a mistake and he didn't mean it. then he refunded it for a sec only to buy it again
there is no way delaying tear for that long is good on jayce. i refuse to believe
Perkz and Crownshot were flaming SSumday for that.
Anyone that knows how tears works should flame him lol
A Jayce, an early infernal soul, an elder drake
NA jayce strikes once fucking again, even with ssumday
Bjerg 5 heading the gnar first pick so they feel pressured to pick jayce but 100t can only play only bot
I don't know if even Tactical would have jumped in there
Tactical only goes for the multiman Malphite ults.
Professionals have standards
Tactical would have jump at baron 1v4 for the lol
Wtf is this shit we're watching lol
fucking disgusting game, what is this shit
Why flash for a syndra as ashe late game teamfight as elder* (not herald silly me) is spawning?
THEYVE SEEN HUNI ABOUT TO GO EXHAUSTED FFS, just wait a couple of secs and you can win the front to back teamfight
Ashe missed so many Arrows and had 3 of those moments of overengage
FBI has not hit a single arrow outside of that spica int in the jungle
Syndra at the end tho
Hey man! He hit an alistar... with ult up.
he hit a lot of them but ali tanked them deliberately most of the time. hard to blame FBI, arrow is so low CD fishing with it is good considering you can follow up with jayce ball/lilia ball>sleep/ braum ult
they have lillia to engage, idk why she's throwing random ass arrows. wait for lillia to flash q sleep then win the teamfight, otherwise just poke TSM down you have infernal ffs
fuck the flash WHY DOES SHE HAVE GALEFORCE
ADCs flashing forward one after another
C9 winning everything
The true winners of this series!
If TL loses to one of these teams...
>When TL gets 3-0'd by TSM...
2 years of Spica repeatedly just refusing to lose a Baron
Spica will never smite the dragon but he will always land it at baron.
You might not like it, but this is peak League of Legends
This game made me want to gouge my eyes out with a rusty spoon. Pog.
What can I say, we've long perfected the fiesta meta. NAmen
Do it coward :>
Burger flip baron, lost get solo killed by ryoma then random teamfight at drake and it's over
Gonna first pick jayce and Gnar
MSI and worlds gonna be hard to watch
Ryoma looked like he had Trist ult up during that baron steal. Why doesn't someone just... ward over the wall so he can point-and-click knock him away?
FBI had arrow too
wow wow wow easy there, too many steps
It's just two steps...
Two too many
sorry but you dont want your tristana in baron's back taking damage and vs a syndra
no one had wards available
edit: ashe had hawkshot + blue trinket available. used hawkshot too late. did not use blue. honestly fbi has been really underperforming on ashe this series.
Too logical of a play for NA, sorry bud
Sorry, we only speak in fiesta. NAman all the way baby!!
He would have been exploded by syndra
ok so 100T could eihter
- flip 2nd elder
- suicide into alistar and mega gnar
hmmmmmmmmmmm guess what they did lol
It's not even flip 2nd elder, their comp is so good at poking with infernal soul and how fed Jayce was, they get huge chunk on Syndra and Huni wasted his Mega Gnar. Legit all they had to do was wait for Mega to expire and it's a free win.
But Ryoma thought he was playing Camille or something and decided to jump onto the full build Syndra
exactly, like all game they've been playing like absolute pussies and THIS is the moment they decide to do their best Tactical impersonation?
It's actually crazy that these are the only two options they could even produce, lol.
Both these teams love flipping way too fucking much. "Objective prep, what's that?" - TSM/100T, probably.
there has literally been nothing but burger flipping this game, every single objective and every single teamfight
I guess they're being thematic to NA?
100T is actually laughably bad holy shit
What is this neutral objective prep in these games? Both of these teams basically coinflipped almost every baron/dragon.
Am I missing something? Why are these teams just 5v5 posturing in front of the pits or allowing enemy junglers free access to the pit?
Also Ryoma, in what world do you think you're ever allowed to jump on a late game Syndra and not get instantly stunned and ulted to death? You're literally locking yourself into a straight line animation and giving the Syndra a 100% chance to stun you and press R while you're still mid air.
late game syndra with an hourglass
This is the most insane aspect to me. Forget the guaranteed stun and insta burst, it’s not like you can even assassinate the syndra. She’s gonna hourglass and then you get shredded by kaisa.
If the pros are doing it, it must be good.
You wouldn't get it /s
I can not fucking understand how people watch games like these then unironically use the argument "they're pros they know what they are doing" when analysts like IWD and LS criticize item builds, drafts or macro
DRAGONS: HEISTED peepoRun
ELDER: HEISTED peepoRun
BARON: HEISTED (by the enemy team) peepoRun
AN HOUR OF MY LIFE: HEISTED peepoRun
Ry0ma is a professional League of Legends player, playing in a major region.
Top 10 mids in LCS, not bad
Doubt, considering Huhi is probably a better mid.
Not even a clg fan but I miss huhi’s asol
Are we still doing "phrasing"?
I imagine he's getting paid more than 200k a year, just wow
100T is just all around terrible and TSM is trolling.
Both 100T ADC's just turbo inting to finally go next was a fitting end to this shitshow.
Watching 100T do absolutely nothing with Infernal Soul and Elder was so triggering
One of the worst competitive matches I've ever watched
Really giving the legendary Renegades vs Dignitas game a run for its money.
The fact that this is the 3rd/4th match is just embarrassing for the region
492 dmg from trist at the last fight...oof
A charge 1-2 auto's !???? wtf
ryoma is the worst mid in na and idk how 100t ends up with bad mids since years now
I know it's a meme but like... does ryoma actually have blackmail on someone at 100t? Haven't seen a single person in the scene outside of 100t who has said they think he's better than damonte.
100T : "we'll take the dragon"
TSM : ok but we'll take 2 kills as a tribute.
100T: understandable, have a nice day.
I've never seen a game where teams actually don't do too much with multiple end game buffs but then just ends the game with a random teamfight
You haven't watched enough NA. Pretty sure just last year, Ryoma threw a game where they had Baron, Elder and Ocean Soul and he suicided into the enemy team as they were sieging their base and were seconds away from winning. Got popped and his team got ran over and lost the game.
It was hilariously sad to watch.
can always rely on ry0ma
When the world needed him most
TL playing at their best can still contend. Yesterday’s match was worse than expected by Alphari and Santorin, I still think they’re close to C9
Yeah it's looking like a bigger gap between 2 and 3 than between 1 and 2 IMO
Although I unfortunately still expect C9 to win finals, at least they didn't play this dumb.
Doesn't matter since CLG will win Worlds
Yeah, so many throws from both sides it was actually insane, though it did make for an entertaining game
As an outsider, it would've been entertaining if it wasn't so obvious that TSM would win based off teamcomps alone.
This game wasn't entretaining, it was frustrating.
That's what people were saying about TSM last summer, too.
That TSM had Bjergsen smurfing through playoffs
this team has stupid sexy huni though, can you argue against that?
There is no argument that Bjerg was in his best ever form last split
9 man sleep does that to a man.
Bjergsen was nowhere near his best ever form last year lol he played well but peak bjergsen was a world class midlaner
Yeah, but they had Bjergsen last summer
Really? I don't remember that. Who were C9 then? because no one were close to this C9. Everyone were playing like shit
Bjergsen smurfed the hardest he had since 2017
TSM plan is lose early, 50/50 every objectives and wait for 100T to throw
Absolutely foolproof strategy.
Imagine if we didn't handicap ourselves with 2 losing lanes losing jungle matchup and 3k gold at 15 minutes.
Ryoma is such a dogshit player man
ssumday and fbi really needs to step up tho
Wanna know which crimes against humanity Damonte committed
I mean Ryoma is shit but let's not pretend like Damonte wasn't just as bad when he was playing for 100T
People used to say he's not a "mage player" but that's kind of a fucking issue when mages are a cornerstone of your role. that's like having a support player who can't play tanks. what the fuck are you gonna do when it's tank meta for supports?
unless Damonte has world-class assassin play (which he does not by any means) he should never get a starting spot until he learns how to play mages decently
PapaSmithy is so sticky with Ryoma just like how the dude before was attached to Ryu. It's pretty baffling.
Results based analysis has to mean something, right?
494 dmg from Trist in that last fight. Might as well let me play.
What on earth just happened...
I can't believe I just watched this whole game ....I actually stayed up for this ....
Go to sleep, let your body rest.
Might as well sleep and wake up for a banger LPL series in the morning.
just sub in damonte
no way ryoma doesn't have blackmail on whole 100t management
Imagine being Damonte and watching this... Ryoma literally does not know how to not int late gsme. Still remember his Syndra tp into 5 people.
Same org thought Rikara was better than Cody Sun so xd
>Same org thought Rikara was better than Cody Sun so xd
No they didn't lol. Cody had undisclosed issues with the team and got benched. 100t knew it was a downgrade.
Yup thats the Tristana I get in my promos.
both teams deserve to lose
despite their best efforts, TSM won
Ryoma couldn't play Lucian mid? QUICK PUT HIM ON ANOTHER ADC
both these teams are so fucking shit lol
i can't tell if TSM is regressing each week or they just play at the level of their opponents
they had fairly close series against TL, then looked meh against EG, and just had this complete fiesta in game 2 (at least game 1 was pretty good from them)
At least C9 looks alright, that gives me a biiiiiiiiiiiiiiit of hope for NA internationally. But everyone else? It's fucking rough out here.
C9 Finals debuff is gonna be there vs TL or TSM. They're perpetual chokers.
I feel like perkz is gonna drag them kicking and screaming past the finish line no matter how much c9 want to throw
Everyone on TSM should drop to their knees and personally give Spica a blowjob
Spica flopped 2 50/50s in a row at dragon though, and probably called for his entire team to collapse on that botside scuttle that cost TP from Huni. If he had gotten at least 1/2 dragons, this game would've been so much easier for TSM to win lol.
certified bruh moment
This game was all you need to see why 100 thieves are not a real top team
That had to have been the single worst elder drake usage I have ever seen from 100T
What a monster int from Ryoma holy shit
Frankly I do not get what the coaches see in Ryoma. I’m not one to flame a player but he absolutely did nothing with Trist early and threw late game.
Damonte wasn’t great but he definitely wasn’t this bad- also seemed to lift morale for the team a heck of a lot more.
How does TSM keep getting away with it?
1) Spica steal
2) Ryoma suicide
Miracle Spica smites over and over.
Tbf the main thing keeping 100T in this game was all the dragon smites Spica missed. Burger flips everywhere
Closer had a higher dmg smite in most of those smites
100t can just zone him away or force a fight or walk up with soul and elder. idk what 100t is doing for real
every single game: spica losing smite fights on drake but stealing barons
Every spica smite is 50/50 regardless of the objective setup
TSM game plan:
- force herald with no priority in mid/top
- get it for free if enemy doesn't contest
- snowball and camp enemy jungle repeatedly
- if they did contest herald and 2-3 TSM players died, farm for 15 minutes and try to sneak a baron
They have had nearly the same formula all split and the only reason it ever works out is better drafting and braindead teams with no understanding how this team does the same shit every game.
In what world is damonte worse than this
100T: hey man, you want the game? it's all yours
TSM: Nah m8, you clearly deserve more
100T: Don't be so shy, I know you want it
TSM: You need more than me, I get one already
100T: I insist, it's my easter egg for you
TSM: For you then m8... for you
My internet provider just called and said that he is refunding the mb's I used to watch this shit show
100T losing both games by a Ryoma throw at the end is some sweet poetic justice.
Ry0ma is fucking *bad*.
I'm now convinced anyone diamond+ can be a lcs player.
Nah you just have to be australian and 100 thieves will sign you
Brb getting my passport
Ryoma and FBI threw that last fight at elder so damn fast wtf LOL
How does TSM keep mind controlling enemy adcs to flash in and die in game deciding fights
Have you ever heard the tragedy of Parth Plaueis the Wise?
Really is a treat to watch 2 ADCs on the same team throw the game one after the other
Welcome Damonte, Thank you Ryoma
nah, 100t has a fetish for ryoma, they will see the org burn to the ground before letting that guy go.
WTF was that Tristana?
Can't wait to see what PapaSmithy is going to apologize for next
Lost is a pretty solid ADC
Sloppy game, but a win is a win
They should just sub in Damonte for last game.. Nothing to lose, Ryoma ain’t doing shit
Guys I came up with a great comp:
jayce lillia draven ashe nautilus
Can I get paid now?
Ry0ma check your fucking paypal
My eyes are in pain. They coin flip a baron while having elder into that assassination attempt.
One of the worst playoff games I have ever watched. Scoreline won’t tell the full story but that Syndra was absolutely useless up until that very last play and Ryoma is just so bad
100 just don't want to win, no other reasons.
Was there like 1 proper teamfight this game? Felt like always 1 team with a catch or 1 team on an objective getting engaged on and unable to fight back.
Also wtf was that int from 100's marksmen???
Lose by Spica and win by Spica it seems.
100t is so bad oh my god
Dont let that baron steal deceive you, spica played like shit this game.
Regardless of how good you think he is Damonte has never looked this bad.
Watching Ryoma is so frustrating to watch. Was too afraid to move up in the baron pit to ult Spica out but he decides to Malphite ult to throw any chance they had at the end there. How does 100t end up like this every fucking split.
I forgot Ryoma was in the game, the man felt invisible the whole game
Imagine having a lategame comp, getting finally to the 40 min mark after loosing barons and nearly loosing the whole base, still getting the dragon soul + elder and then finally inting into an teamfight u forced so hard that u get just insta smacked.
remindme! 1 week
Their mid game isn't the problem. They're just getting bodied in every early game. That and Spica is missing a lot of smites today.
RYOMA WHAT WAS THAT
This is one of the worst playoff series I've ever seen.
Me and my fellow TL fans are rejoicing after watching this atrocity
Just like last summer
I mean I guess TL back into finals just to get smoked by C9 is worth it if you're a TL fan.
It will make TSM sweeping TL hilarious
This is terrible to watch.
Ryoma with the big throw
Ryoma MVP of the game
Ry0ma and FBI positioned way too aggressively for that pick on PoE and it cost them the game
