100 Thieves take sole control of first place in the 2021 LCS Summer Split standings with emphatic win over TSM

Published

on

With only three weeks left in the 2021 Summer Split, every top team in the LCS is looking to build some momentum heading into the playoffs. For 100 Thieves, beating TSM to break their tie for first place and become the definitive top team in NA is a great way to gain some confidence for the rest of the season.

Before this match, 100 Thieves stumbled through their last two games, losing to both Golden Guardians and a surging Evil Geniuses squad. Even though they were still at the top of the regular season standings, it was worrisome for a roster that was looking to establish themselves as the squad to beat in the region.

TSM, on the other hand, also had a difficult time this weekend with a loss against Counter Logic Gaming. They had a better showing in their win against Golden Guardians, but this game was the litmus test to decide who will be leading the league when the postseason begins this coming August.

Unfortunately for TSM, one single teamfight at the 16-minute mark decided their fate and allowed 100T to snowball their early lead into a win. The Thieves’ team composition allowed them to be far more proactive than TSM, since they did not need to rely on late-game scaling to become powerful. With picks like Olaf, Gwen, and Sylas, they could continue pushing the tempo in order to force TSM into bad teamfights.

From that point onward, 100T controlled every neutral objective and denied TSM any room to breathe. The team’s talented jungler Closer finished the game with six kills, three assists, and no deaths, as he helped provide valuable pressure across the map to allow his laners the room to execute their game plans. Later on, he was unstoppable in the teamfights, and none of the TSM players had enough damage to burn through his healing.

With a playoff spot locked in for 100 Thieves, the team will now set their sights on finishing the summer on a strong note. Next week, they have matches against Team Dignitas, Team Liquid, and FlyQuest, where they’ll be able to test their mettle and strategies against more fierce LCS competition.

League players attempt to set record for largest shield on one champion with over 38,000 shielding

Published

on

If you’re trying to set a world record, maybe all you need is a whole bunch of patient friends and a ton of time on your hands. In the case of this group of League of Legends players, they were determined to set the world record for the largest shield on one champion.

After much deliberation, they got a shield that was just over 38,000 strong, but it took them multiple tries and plenty of experimentation. You won’t be able to achieve this supershield in a regular game, but it’s still fun to see this massive shield on an unkillable Sett.

Cypher player highlights wall bang setup on Ascent’s B site

Published

on

A Cypher player discovered an excellent setup for B site on Ascent that can help defend the site and secure a few easy kills. 

Using abilities effectively in VALORANT can easily determine the outcome of a match. Players who are unprepared for an enemy push can be overwhelmed and die quickly or be forced to retreat. But setting up a strong defense can help you hold the site or at least buy time for your teammates to rotate. For example, VALORANT player khemyc uploaded a short clip explaining how to use Cypher’s ability to easily hold B site on Ascent.
