A bloody victory over FlyQuest places Cloud9 second in LCS
This battle for second place was a frantic affair. The match was full of dramatic baron steals and aggressive team fights.
Cloud9 once again picked Sylas, this time to be played in the mid lane by Yasin “Nisqy” Dinçer. Both teams opted for alternative picks in the bottom lane, with Cassiopea for Cloud9 and Yasuo for FlyQuest.
Cloud9 waited patiently for an opportunity to get back into the game. Their patience paid off after one too many mistakes by WildTurtle. The bottom laner known for his aggression went too hard without backup and gave kills away, one of which turned into a baron buff for Cloud9.
The bloody affair continued with FlyQuest attempting to regain control and Cloud9 looking for the right time to pounce. At 30 minutes, WildTurtle would redeem himself by stealing a baron from Cloud9’s clutches, but it wasn’t enough.
Cloud9 aced the FlyQuest squad in the river and broke into the enemy base unopposed. Cloud9 claimed another win at 34 minutes
The star of the game was young support player Tristan “Zeyzal” Stidam on Galio. He was able to initiate fights and provide the necessary support to his laning teammates.
