coL.LoL vs CLG and MRN in LCS Week 8

BY Andrew Miesner / April 4, 2013

In the eighth week of the League of Legends Championship Series coL.LoL will be facing another three teams. This week the will go up against CLG, MRN and Vulcun. Today, coL.LoL will have a rematch against CLG and then play their third game against MRN.


compLexity 4-14 VS 10-10 CLG


This week, coL.LoL was able to overcome CLG for their fifth win in the LCS. To start off the game, coL.LoL decided to invade into CLG’s jungle where they picked up four kills for only one death. This gave them an extremely large early game advantage. In the top lane, coL.LoL was able to successfully shut down HotShotGG with frequent ganks, and the new addition to the team Pr0lly was able to keep Link at bay in the middle lane. Overall with superior teamfight coordination and constant pressure on different objectives coL.LoL took a victory, making their head to head record with CLG 1-3.


Last week, CLG was able to barely overcome coL.LoL in their third game together. Knowing that they can beat CLG, coL.LoL is ready to make their head-to-head record 1-3. Recently, coL.LoL had a roster change that replaces their mid laner Chuuper with newcomer pr0lly. This can either bring the team a new fresh look to the game and can result in overall better gameplay, or can hinder their performance due to miscommunication. Even with a new player on their team, going up against HotshotGG (Top Lane), Chauster (Jungler), Link (Mid Lane), Doublelift (ADC), and Aphromoo (Support) will surely be a challenge. The match is set to air at 1PM PDT / 4PM PDT.

Despite gaining an early lead, coL.LoL again fell victim to Team MRN. After picking an unconventional team with new player Pr0lly in the middle lane as Jarvan, coL.LoL were able to get ahead of MRN in the early game. The teamfight capabilities for MRN were far superior and were so they were able win a couple of teamfights putting them back. As the game carried on, coL.LoL were unable to regain a lead, and MRN were able to win a final fight to secure the win, making their head to head record 1-2.


A victory was secured the last time coL.LoL met MRN making their head to head record 1-1. With both teams trying to get the all important wins this far into the season, both teams will have to play at their best to earn one. Although MRN and coL.LoL know each other and scrim frequently, the new roster change for coL.LoL may work to their advantage. With MRN not knowing what to expect, coL.LoL may have the upper hand. Playing against the roster of MegaZero (Top Lane), ClakeyD (Jungler), Ecco (Mid Lane), Nientonsoh (AD Carry), and Heartbeat (Support) will make this game one to be watched. The match is set to air at 4PM PDT / 7PM EDT.
