2.) TSM

TSM came into the Spring Split with all the hype in the world, but they are probably better this time around.

Their previous lineup with Bora “YellOwStaR” Kim simply didn’t work out, and they enter the summer with a fresh rookie support in Vincent “Biofrost” Wang. Biofrost is a young player that TSM will be able to mold into the player they need, and his playstyle is going to synergize much better with Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng than YellOwStaR’s ever did.

Even though TSM had their issues last split, their team is completely stacked with talent and they became better as the split progressed. The only way for them to go is up, and an offseason of practice in Korea should help them reach their full potential.

TSM fans shouldn’t be worried about another poor split this time around – but instead – they should be excited about how good this team could be.

1.) Counter Logic Gaming

CLG nearly took TSM’s spot on this list, but that just doesn’t seem like the logical thing to do right now.

The men in black are back-to-back NA LCS champions and are coming off of one of the best international performances a North American team has ever had.

They not only deserve respect, but they command it.

CLG doesn’t have the flashiest players going around making crazy plays, but they play as a complete unit better than anyone else in the region right now and are led by one of the best players in the world: Zaqueri “Aphromoo” Black.

Surely, their magical ride has to end at some point, but there’s no reason to doubt them until that moment happens. They are at the very top of North America right now, and they are the team everyone is aspiring to be.
