After the grand finale finish in the Mid Season Invitational 2019. Team Liquid started their campaign against TSM in the NA LCS Summer Split 2019. It was expected that the side might lose, since they had little to no training in the last two weeks. Yet they silenced their critics after demolishing TSM in less than 30 minutes of play.
After defeating his former team, the AD carry of Liquid, Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng revealed that: He and his teammates were burnt out after the MSI and didn’t train at all. Yet they still had the a good start to the summer season.
TSM nowhere to be found
Liquid outclassed its opponent from the first minute and applied constant pressure to all the lanes with quick rotations. The jungler of the team, Jake “Xmithie” Puchero wreak havoc for TSM in the mid and bot, so the team had to spent most of its’ resources on wards to contain him. In the meantime, top laner Jung “Impact” Eon-yeong took advantage of the space created and for the most out of his lane.
Before the start of the game, the NA LCS community was intrigued to watch the bot lane of TSM. Since the duo played horribly in the Spring Split finals so it was an opportunity to redeem itself. But unfortunately, Liquid took nothing for granted and annihilated them.After securing the laning phase the side just snowballed to victory.
It is great to see Liquid getting back to its winning ways after a somewhat embarrassing lose in the finale of MSI. Their domination against the runner-ups of last season shows that the team has learned a lot from its endeavours of Malaysia. Liquid will return to the LCS action later today and will take on Echo Fox.
