For all the memes that have been created concerning Europe’s supposed “love of ties,” last week’s League Championship Series proved Europe is a strong, confident region that don’t need no third game.
If the European League Championship Series is the Wild West, a region where every team both has potential and appears to be struggling at the same time, then North America is the epitome of the current capitalist system, separated by the haves and the have nots.
After only two weeks of European League Championship Series play, it’s clear that the roster shuffles that dominated the offseason have had very mixed results.
While sample sizes still need to be taken into account, it’s easy to see a few valuable lessons teams likely learned after the first week of the North American League Championship Series.
Week 2 is every gambler’s favorite week of the year. Despite being told time and time again that small sample sizes are not to be trusted, fans and analysts alike love to jump on the first bandwagon that will accept them.
The opening weekend for the North American League Championship Series has finally arrived! Unlike their European brethren, the NA LCS managed to keep their rosters mostly intact in the top third of the standings.
The time has arrived. After weeks of anticipation, the moment European fans have all been waiting for has finally arrived.
