The second week of LCS was quite intensive.

DIG pulled an upset and beat Team Liquid, who has been waiting for Broxah to arrive in NA.

CLG vs 100 Thieves

Kayle / Rek’Sai / Lucian / Aphelios / Smoothie vs. Sett / Jarvan / Zoe / Xayah / Rakan

The match was quite stable for the first few minutes of the game, but after a play around the bottom lane, Xayah alongside Rakan snowballed and started carrying the game. With a reliable bot lane to support the aggressive plays, Jarvan started securing objectives left and right for his team. With a big lead of dragons, farm, and Baron 100 Thieves pushed to win with no issues.

Dignitas vs Team Liquid

Gangplank / Jarvan / Orianna / Aphelios / Thresh vs. Aatrox / Lee Sin / Ryze / Senna / Nautilus

While Team Liquid is still waiting for their jungler, Broxah, to get his visa approved and arrive in NA they are being stomped by enemy teams. The match against Dignitas was quite close and for the most part of the game, Team Liquid had a gold lead. A bad fight against an Elder-dragon empowered Dignitas team sealed their fate though and Team Liquid lost the game.

Cloud 9 vs Immortals

Gankgplank / Elise / Pantheon / Aphelios / Tahm Kench vs. Karma / Gragas / Yasuo / Cassiopeia / Thresh

Cloud 9 got a 200 hundred gold lead by 3 minutes and maintained it till the end of the game. Immortals were not cohesive in their actions. Their calls seemed lost and C9 capitalized on it. Cloud 9 is looking like the best team in the league currently after upgrading their bottom lane with Zven and Vulcan. If they keep it up, they will be a good challenger for Team Liquid for the LCS championship title.

Evil Geniuses vs Golden Guardians

Aatrox / Rek’sai / Orianna / Sona / Tahm vs. Fiora / Lee Sin / Syndra / Aphelios / Nautilus

The early game went in favor of Evil Geniuses who capitalized on the mistakes from Golden Guardians and took objectives. While Aatrox was a big monster in the top lane, Rek’Sai was inting with his plays. Golden Guardians observed the poor play from Rek’sai and started focusing on her pathing to catch her out of guard and force objectives without an enemy jungler present. With their jungler constantly dead, EG could not compete for objectives and lost the game. The million-dollar deal for Evil Geniuses did not work out as planned.

That is all for Day 1 of Week 2 coverage of LCS 2020, stay tuned for more in the upcoming days.
