This weekend, the two biggest Western tournaments and the North American LCS and European LEC come back after a long break. This is the best opportunity for new teams with new employees to prove their ability before the old forces.
The LCS teams have had many notable personnel changes recently
Before the tournament starts, Riot Games do a small survey with LCS players about meta games, childhood idols or their goals … And you’ll be surprised to hear that answer.
Q: Which position has the biggest influence on professional play?
It is easy to see that most gamers choose the duo – Mid as the answer when their advantage will be promoted to 2 wings. Taking advantage early in these two positions is the most basic and effective play of many of the world’s top teams currently.
Faker and Bengi defined what the best Mid-jungle duo would be
Q: Which position has the least impact on professional play?
More than 90% of professional gamers think that Top and Gunner are the two positions that have the least influence on a team’s playing style. This is because the nature of these two positions is often to cling to farm and control the lane, they move not much in the time before breaking the first tower. Perhaps the meta in Season 10 will be Dragon eating as soon as possible so the top lane abandonment will take place quite often.
Dragon became too important, so the top lane was abandoned
Q: What will you choose between – Winning the LCS and getting through to the Worlds group stage?
LCS champion: 58.1%.
Through the group stage World Championship: 41.9%.
Maybe something easier is done first
