Cloud9 achieved a 12-0 record in the LCS by beating Dignitas on Monday Night League and continue to be the undisputed best team in the Spring Split. C9 gave up only one kill and their first mid turret this entire split to win 10-1 in 30 minutes.
There was hardly a player on Cloud9 who couldn’t contest the MVP title. Robert “Blaber” Huang outmaneuvered Jonathan “Grig” Armao every step of the way and took every single neutral map objective in the first 15 minutes. Down in the bot lane, Jersper “Zven” Svenningsen and Philippe “Vulcan” Laflamme were once again perfect, finishing with a combined 5/0/13 KDA.
There was really nothing Dignitas could do the entire match and it was all Cloud9 all the way, making for a match poor on memorable moments. And while for Cloud9 this was just another day at the office, the situation is much more dire for Dignitas.
The black and yellow jerseys are now on a three-game losing streak, in danger of missing the playoffs of the trend continues. The middle of the LCS table is all very close, with seven teams being within one win of each other. Apart from Cloud9, FlyQuest (8-4) is the only other outlier in the top half of the standings.
“I think as soon as we won three games in a row, we stopped working hard—we got lazy,” Dignitas’ top laner Heo “Huni” Seong-hoon told Dot Esports this weekend, while pointing out that losing now is OK, compared to losing in the playoffs.
Cloud9 already don’t have to worry about the playoffs, as their spot is secured. Furthermore, FlyQuest are the only team that can realistically challenge C9’s top spot, even if it requires some blazing hot winning streaks from FQ and Cloud9 to actually start losing for that to happen.
