Team Liquid gets back on track with semifinal sweep of FlyQuest
Team Liquid is ready to defend the team’s title in St. Louis where they will face Team SoloMid. A decisive win over FlyQuest put an end to questions about whether or not Team Liquid was still in good playing shape.
In game one, Team Liquid showed an unusual strategy with bot laner Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng on Sona and support Jo “CoreJJ” Yong-in on Taric. This duo provides tremendous sustain during the mid game and remains undefeated in the LCS.
FlyQuest couldn’t do much against Sona and Taric but made sure to punish Liquid in the top lane. Rookie of the split Omran “V1per” Shoura constantly shoved in Jung “Impact” Eon-yeong under his turret. At 24 minutes, V1per would get a quadra kill and secure a FlyQuest ace.
Team Liquid was running against the clock since Sona and Taric become far less relevant in the late game stages. The squad decided to group and fight. FlyQuest tried to contest, but in the end, Team Liquid would get their desired engagement and secure a baron and the win.
In game two, Team Liquid locked in a more standard composition with Doublelift on Sivir. This standard game favored Team Liquid and FlyQuest was quickly out of options. V1per went for aggressive rotating dives in the mid lane that Nicolaj “Jensen” Jensen ably punished.
At 24 minutes and with a fresh baron buff, Team Liquid won game two.
Jensen on Zoe and Impact on Viktor made the difference for Team Liquid in game three. The solo laners, with support from jungler Jake “Xmithie” Puchero, were seemingly all over the map.
Whatever Team Liquid wanted, they got. FlyQuest couldn’t walk forward without getting hit by Zoe and her insane damage. Neutral objectives including the baron buff were secured by Team Liquid with precious little opposition.
31 minutes into the game, Team Liquid secured their third straight win and a spot in the LCS finals where they’ll battle TSM for a league’s trophy.
