    They can solve their decision making by getting a good coaching staff. Their decision making early in LCS always looks shit, then they figure the meta out and dominate the end of season, then win the playoffs and go to worlds. 3 seasons in a row that's happened lol.

    Coaches only matter if you think they matter. The problem is that FNC strategy worked before because no one had coaches. Alliance now has a serious coaching staff, SK has a full support staff. FNC has raw talent. The problem before was not as systematic as it is now. FNC is losing games they should be winning because of bad decision making, not bad play.

    It was the fight at dragon that lost them the game, it was the horrible decision making afterward that made the game so short.

    So winners tonight should be C9, LMQ, DIG and CLG.

    Anyone see any upsets coming?

    CRS could upset dig, dig is known for having random losses to CRS for whatever reason. other than that yeah i'm guessing easy games for the favorites

    TSM/c9 could be decent too but i doubt it

    Yeeeeeeesssssssssssssssssssssssssss!

    Honestly, I think Innox could've won that race. Either way, why no kills, why no assist . Such a bad fantasy week.

    Helios looked goooood, but EG needed a better mid-lategame plan, something like a duo baron would've been good.

    Did anyone else see how far ahead Xpecial was at playing Braum than everyone else? Even really good supports like Mor were getting the shield backwards. Xpecial made play after play and his positioning as damage soak was pretty much perfect.

    Yep! Xpecial was really good with it and definitely was a huge factor for so much of their plays. Aphromoo was okay on it. Also CLG made sure to ban out Braum because they knew they wanted to siege against EG. Braum definitely pick/ban status. In the right hands and used correctly you can see how well everyone can survive fights. I'm sure all the supports are practicing hardcore with him or they're going to plan to find ways to counter or just ban him outright.

    I have been giving some though into this but I think there might be some benefit in having a couple too many OP champs, instead of a couple too many UP champs. If you have 10+ OP's then you can't ban all of them out and they get distributed relatively equally. The problem is that they create like 2-3 MUST bans, then a next tier of champs that can distort games if they get ahead (Nidalee I am looking at you), and that is why we get a stale champ pool (though, I think it is also stale because of the players limited champs pools and there are more viable picks than are really played).

    Twitter post questioning Gambit's line up for this week. Might be Visa issues or something.

    The rango pick was bad though. A good master yi player would've done better for C9 that game lol.

    Reddit seems to believe that the Alliance v. CW was the game of the year...

    That may have been one of the worst games I have ever seen.
