Bot Lane

Bot lane is an area that TL should try to exploit. FlyQuest’s ADC Jason “WildTurtle” Tran has quietly had a great season and alone would do alright against Liquid’s 1st LCS all-pro team ADC Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng if bot lane was only a one member lane. Spoiler, it is not.

The huge mismatch is between TL’s World Champion and 1st LCS all-pro team support jo “CoreJJ” Yong-in and FlyQuest’s support Juan “JayJ” Guibert. CoreJJ is still considered the front runner for MVP of the league. His spot on engages and flanks have made his presence known here in North America.

JayJ‘s split in comparison is filled with a lot of ups and downs. WildTurtle and JayJ have managed to grab some 2v2 kills in lane and JayJ often took up the duty to engage team fights for the team. The main issue is that JayJ has been very inconsistent.  There are times when he initiates the game-winning fight, and times when he goes in without his team close by and dies alone.


The mid lane will probably be overshadowed by the bot lane this series. However, there is a chance TL’s 2nd LCS all-pro team mid laner Nicolaj “Jensen” Jensen could find a way to gain advantages vs FlyQuest’s mid laner Eugene “Pobelter” Park.

Although Pobelter had a great series and was instrumental in FlyQuest’s win over Golden Guardians, Pobelter, like JayJ, has had a problem with consistency this split. Jensen should be favored to take advantage of those inconsistencies and errors from P.O.B.
