Well it was one hell of a weekend boys and girls as the 2015 summer playoffs in both NA and EU raged on. I will admit some teams definitely surprised me in the end and i offer my congrats to the winning teams here are the teams and standings in the summer playoffs starting with NA.
TIP VS DIG (winner TIP) 3-0
Well this was definitely expected the games were by no means boring DIG tried in all 3 games but TIP just outplayed them in every way as expected. I hoped TIP would be able to defeat them cleaner than they did but they still win and move on to take on CLG in the semis.
TSM VS GRV(winner TSM) 3-1
This match up had some surprises Dyrus a player most would say is the weakest on TSM carried not one but two of the four games. It was entertaining to watch him be the carry it highlights TSM's growth since it wasnt just a protect our mid lane game as per usual with TSM. They definitely came to the playoffs better than they ended the split but will this growth be enough to take on the number one seat in TL or will TL end TSM's playoff hope well see this weekend wont we.
While NA had a few good games it pales in comparison to the EU playoffs and the explosive games played there.
H2K vs GIA(winner H2K) 3-0
This was hard to watch with a land slide victory in game 1 H2K really showed just how large the gap in skill really was. That was a 16-0 game not a single kill on the side of GIA just sad but they performed a tad bit better in games 2 and 3 but it didnt stop H2K from 3-0 sweeping them off the playoff bracket. H2K moves on to face ORG witch looks to be a great match to find out whos gonna take on FNC in the finals.
Series of the week
UOL VS ROC(winner UOL) 3-2
Wow this was a back and forth match up it all began with UOL showing not only ROC but all of EU they were not a washed up team like we expected them to be. This was shown in a great 2-0 run in the first games of the series. It all looked like a sweep for UOL when out of nowhere ROC turned the tables with a 2-0 blaze on UOL. This took the series to a great 5th game 49 mins long of great back and forth play but ultimately UOL came out on top and now claim the honor of getting sweeped by FNC in the semis lol. No but really a great series and i hope UOL don't just get man handled by FNC at least win a game and ill be happy.
A great start to playoffs lots of ups lots of downs but all in all i look forward to seeing how things develop in the semis and the finals in both NA and EU.
