Every team in the LCS has one big question going into Summer 2020.


Question: How’s PowerofEvil’s back?

Similar to 100 Thieves and Ssumday, FlyQuest were largely carried by their mid laner Tristan “PowerOfEvil” Schrage in the Spring Split. That’s likely going to be the case again in Summer 2020, as the team made no changes other than replacing V1per with Colin “Solo” Earnest. This iteration of FlyQuest made the Spring Finals, so they should be a strong contender for a Worlds spot, but it’s going to be up to PoE and if he can put up another performance.

Question: Was the Spring Split a fluke?

Golden Guardians vastly overperformed expectations in the Spring Split, making it into the playoffs. In the offseason, they upgraded their roster by solidifying Choi “huhi” Jae-hyun as their starting support and bringing in Tanner “Damonte” Damonte for the mid lane. Both of these should be upgrades for GGS, but it’s still a question if this roster has the firepower to make playoffs.


Question: Can Eika develop into the carry they need?

Immortals are a team in desperate need of a lane they can play around. In the top lane they have Paul “sOAZ” Boyer, who has been inconsistent in recent years, while in the ADC role they have Apollo “Apollo” Price, who does has not proven to be anything more than an average AD Carry.

That leaves the young mid laner Jérémy “Eika” Valdenaire, who the team was clearly hoping could become that strong point to play around. And, while Eika is a bit better than most believe, he’s more of a defensive player than a hyper carry. He’s not one of the more aggressive or creative mid laners in the LCS and he needs to become that if Immortals has any prayer of making the playoffs.
