Envy Apollo: “I’m more concerned about how we’re going to do in a best-of-five in the coming playoffs.”
EnVyUs has qualified for the North American League of Legends Championship Series summer playoffs after being in the promotion tournament just last split.
Envy Apollo: “When I look back, I feel like I haven’t really improved significantly and I think it’s about time that I step up as one of the veteran players and actually perform well.”
Team EnVyUs surprised most viewers with a 3-1 start through two weeks of the North American League of Legends Championship Series (NA LCS) summer split, but the team slumped a bit in Week 3.
Envy Apollo on difference in LCS and scrims: “On stage, you’ll kind of see a very slower style. The game is just naturally slower paced.”
Slingshot’s Andrew Kim caught up with EnVyUs’ Apollo “Apollo” Price during Week 7 of the North American League of Legends Championship Series.
Professional League of Legends is still a reasonably young entity, but it’s been around long enough that a line of players have come through the game who have served as role models, reference points and sources of inspiration for the current batch of pros.
Slingshot asked 12 North American LCS pros how they feel about the new schedule and how they approach Friday night games after being used to playing exclusively on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Their responses are below:
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.
Everybody wants to know who’s the best. The constant debate is one of the pillars of sports and esports among fans. But what about the pros? Who do they think is the best among them?
Slingshot attended the final week of the North American League of Legends Championship Series spring split and had the chance to catch up with various players. There’s plenty more coming from our trip to Los Angeles, but let’s start with a simple — yet thought-provoking — question we asked nine players in the North American LCS.
