In maybe a very powerful match to be performed within the LCS this Spring Split, Cloud9 completely dominated FlyQuest, incomes full management over first place within the league within the break up’s eleventh hour. With simply two video games left on the schedule, C9 now maintain a full-game lead over FlyQuest within the standings because of as we speak’s near-perfect shellacking.
This marks the primary time that C9 have held sole possession of first place over FlyQuest by greater than a half-game all season.
In simply over 26 minutes, C9 wiped the ground with FlyQuest, posting a kill differential of 12 to 2 whereas holding a monstrous gold lead of 16,000 by the point they toppled FlyQuest’s Nexus.
Both groups got here into the ultimate week of the break up with similar 12-3 data, though Cloud9 had been on a a lot hotter streak as of late, operating into superweek on a five-game winstreak. FlyQuest, who seemed to be operating away with the league all through nearly all of the Spring, have now crashed again all the way down to Earth, dropping three of their final 4 video games.
Today, it acquired late fairly early for FlyQuest, as a three-for-zero teamfight over a dragon accompanied by a cross-map solo kill put C9 up by 5k gold simply 11 minutes in. From there, they have been capable of snowball their lead and put FlyQuest away for good, surrendering only one goal (a backside lane turret) all through your entire contest.

Now, C9 holds a stark benefit over FlyQuest within the race for the LCS prime seed. FlyQuest will want help from the opposite groups within the LCS this weekend—notably Immortals and CLG, who’re C9’s subsequent opponents—in the event that they need to reclaim their place atop the standings. Should FlyQuest finally catch again as much as C9 and shut the one-game hole earlier than the common break up involves an finish, there might be a possible tiebreaker between the 2 groups, contemplating they’ve break up the head-to-head this Spring.
FlyQuest will shut out their superweek with matchups in opposition to Golden Guardians and TSM.
