With the LCS Season over for the year, it’s time to look back on all the good and (mostly) bad times with our end of the year roast of all the LCS teams!

Okay, let’s keep this roast moving along and talk about the teams that all LCS teams are going to put an inordinate amount of hope on before they flame out in spectacular fashion. Let’s start with the #3 seed, who will have the monumental task of not becoming the first western team to fail to make it out of play-ins.

Wait, why is Team Liquid sitting in the third-place team’s chair? Shouldn’t they be in fir–oh no.

Are you KIDDING me TL, you flamed out in the playoffs too? And you lost to TSM so your old ADC Doublelift gets the last laugh and that fanbase becomes even more insufferable? You know, you have let LCS fans down in the past Liquid but this might be your worst one yet.

Oh well, at least Broxah and Impact will get to see their old friends on better teams. Well, not you Impact. Unfortunately, when T1 dropped the “SKT” they also appeared to drop their team’s talent. Maybe next year we can see TL Faker as Steve backs up the Brinks truck after Jensen forgets to hit his Kayle ult during a minute-long teamfight or something.

That just leaves us with two teams that will be the true hopes for NA in groups, FlyQuest and TSM. Let’s start with FlyQuest, who I assume will take over in C9’s place for “team that no one expects to do anything but manages to overperform.” No, don’t start getting all excited FlyQuest, “overperforming” at Worlds for an LCS team just means going 2-4 in a group with a Korean, European, and Chinese team.

But seriously, good on FlyQuest for their first trip to Worlds! I’m sure this will set them up for sustained dominance of the LCS like previous first-time Worlds attendees 100 Thieves and Clutch. At the very least, maybe they’ll come up with a new environmental initiative.

Maybe they’ll donate for landfill clean-up every time an NA team picks a meaningless fight at dragon or Baron. Or they can just throw every LCS team into a landfill if all three teams fail to make it out of groups again.

Now, we come to the end of the roast. To our final team. The champions of North America. Brace yourselves people because those damn chants are about to start again…it’s TSM.

Yeah, yeah, settle down you greasy animals. Congratulations on not tripping over your own feet for the third year in a row and actually managing to surround Bjergsen with some wards who won’t int his games.

I’d also like to know what tactical minds your coaches stole talent from Monstars-style to enable that playoff run to happen? Like, are Bill Belicheck and Mike Krzyzewski wandering around drooling somewhere because Parth and Mabry stole all their IQ points? Let’s just hope the Loony Toons don’t win that basketball game with Lebron or else that knowledge is going to spill out of their heads so fast they’ll fly around like deflating balloons.

Anyway, we’re here at the end of the worst anime ever as our protagonist, Doublelift, got to slack off for half the year, didn’t learn his lesson, got to win the championship, and even got the girl! Truly an inspiring story of how hard work, dedication, and respect for your craft don’t matter if you have talent, big-money backers, and someone else to carrying.

Next. Ranking the 50 greatest LCS players of all time. dark

Speaking someone else doing all of the work, where is Bjerg? Still in the hospital for that back pain? Some people have to carry teams on their back but man, TSM, in that GGS series you guys were trying to break him over your knee like Bane. But don’t worry guys, when he runs out of gas on the international stage (again) it’ll be him who gets the blame for not being able to beat Knight, Chovy, or Showmaker.

So congratulations, TSM, on being the first team in LCS history to win a championship after losing in the first round of said playoffs. Now let’s all get out of here. The LEC roast is after this and if they see us North Americans they’ll start flaming us worse than I already did and they won’t be kidding.
