I told you it was gonna be one of those days… The day of upsets continue with a top-of-the-table beatdown by the hands of Misfits and SK Gaming!
Misfits vs MAD Lions
It seems that MAD Lions have been dealt an unfortunate hand by the meta…
With the dragon update on top of the durability patch, teams are incentivized to simply pick scaling hypercarries with Ornn and simply outlast their opposition.
Hell, I think Ornn is 3-0 so far today…
MAD Lions should not have any problems playing a slower, front to back style – given how good UNF0RGIVEN has been throughout this year, Armut’s proficiency on tanks and Nisqy also being proficient on backline DPS mages like Cassiopeia.
It will take a bit of recalibrating, but I am not too worried about the Lions even after their 0-2 week.

SK Gaming vs Rogue
The day of upsets continue as SK Gaming trounce Rogue with a monster performance of JNX’s Shyvana!
I have already remarked numerous times how, without Malrang’s proactivity, Rogue are still the same slow team they were in splits past and this time it was no different.
Between the Poppy that was left through the draft for Gilius finding engages and JNX running past the entire enemy team to assassinate the backline, Rogue could not offer much in terms of resistance.
Looks like Shyvana, not Gnar or Aatrox, might be the real counter to Ornn as the Forge God loses his first game of the day.
