LCS caster Jatt has on-air flashback to teaching days due to TSM’s deep-strat counter choose

During the draft of final evening’s LCS week 4 recreation between TSM and FlyQuest, LCS broadcaster and former Team Liquid head coach Joshua “Jatt” Leesman had a harrowing expertise in real-time when he was pressured to relive a very crushing loss from his days as a coach. 

In final evening’s recreation, TSM picked Cho’Gath as a counter to Sion within the high lane. And because the counter choose was locked in, Jatt instantly gave his two cents about why he likes the choose a lot. “If I had to pick a tank counter to Sion, it would actually be Cho’Gath,” Jatt mentioned. “I think it’s one of the picks that has the ability to match him in beefiness in side lanes.”

Solo’s Cho’Gath choose marked the primary time that the champion made an look within the LCS since 2021. More particularly, the champion was picked by former Team Liquid high laner Alphari within the 2021 Spring Split finals—a choose that was drafted by then-coach Jatt. As quickly because the LCS manufacturing staff confirmed to the broadcasters that Solo’s choose was the primary in two years, the gears began turning for Jatt, who instantly remembered choosing the champion for his former squad two years in the past. 

When Jatt and Liquid drafted the champion in that exact recreation—a deciding fifth recreation in the 2021 LCS Spring Split finals—they did in order a counter choose to Sion. Unfortunately for them, the Sion (who was piloted by C9 high laner Fudge) lane-swapped into the underside lane that recreation, leaving Alphari’s Cho’Gath to fend for himself in a two-vs-one towards C9’s bot lane pairing of Zven and Vulcan. Alphari went 2/7/2 in that contest and C9 received the sport, plus the LCS title. 

“We definitely picked Cho’Gath into Sion, and if it was a lane versus Sion, it might have worked, but it was a lane swap, so, unlucky,” Jatt mentioned on forged. 

Last evening’s contest began to appear to be it will prove similarly for Solo when he began out with an 0/5/0 scoreline. But after accumulating gold in facet lanes by clearing minion waves and taking down towers on his personal, he was an unkillable monster for TSM, digging himself out of a large gap and ending the sport with a rating of 5/5/9. TSM went on to win the sport and deal FlyQuest their first lack of the 2023 Spring Split in a large upset.
