Apollo on ADC meta: “Lucian is still good, but going the utility route with Ashe, Caitlyn, Sivir (is better). Caitlyn’s not really utility but she’s more like back line.”
Slingshot caught up with Apollo during Week 2 of the LCS to talk about joining Apex, the start to the split and adjusting to a new schedule.
Slingshot had the chance to talk to jungler Anthony “Hard” Barkhovtsev after Week 2 of the LCS about all those topics:
Reignover: Tournament realm is “most efficient” way to practice outside of scrims. “We even have voice talk.”
The pros seemed mixed on the best way to practice, though TR appears to have made at least somewhat of an improvement. Here are the takes of three LCS players on the situation:
KiWiKid: “I’ve been in the game for so f***ing long, honestly way too long, and I haven’t accomplished much…I want to go to worlds.”
The scene was set for Alan “KiWiKid” Nguyen to walk away from professional League of Legends.
WildTurtle on NA region: “I think the gap has definitely closed a lot, and I think NA has a really good chance to win worlds this year.”
Immortals is off to another good start in its second split of the North American League Championship Series.
Slingshot’s Vince Nairn had the chance to talk to Phoenix1’s Austin “Gate” Yu during Week 2 of the League Championship Series summer split.
Wizzrobe: “Every tournament I come to learn, and if I’m going to too many tournaments, I feel like I’m not learning or absorbing the information as much.”
Slingshot’s Dylan “CC” Cooke had the chance to talk to Wizzrobe about tournaments, playing different games and how to space out a year-long schedule.
