: The fantasy still favors NA if you pick the game mode where you get the 2 of the 3 better games. EU Game 1 Xpeke goes 1-0-3 Game 2 Xpeke goes 0-3-0 Your stuck with the 1-3-3 But in NA you are given another chance if you do play that game mode.
You misread it. "The First-Two-Games scoring system is exactly what it sounds like: **only the first two games** played in each Best of 2 (Bo2) or Best of 3 (Bo3) match are worth fantasy points." "third game is simply **ignored** for Fantasy LCS purposes." Hope I helped! :)
: Power Rankings 3/22/2016
Since the guys at RITO games will not put up any type of international rankings anymore bacuse of... you know... reasons, let's just dicuss our opinion about the teams' strengths around the world here! :) This list below is based on just my personal opinion, so feel free to disagree with me, and write down your opinions as well! :) **International Power Ranking (2016.03.24.):** (Next to the teams' names are their international tier level) 1. ROX Tigers (SSS+) 2. SK Telecom T1 (S) 3. Jin Air Greenwings (S) 4. KT Rolster (S) 5. CJ Entus (S) 6. Samsung Galaxy (S) 7. Longzhu Gaming (A) 8. Afreeca Freecs (A) 9. ahq e-Sports Club (A) 10. Immortals (A) 11. G2 Esports (A) 12. H2k-Gaming (A) 13. Team Vitality (A) 14. Flash Wolfes (B) 15. Origen (B) 16. Cloud 9 (B) 17. Counter Logic Gaming (B) 18. Unicorns of Love (B) 19. Fnatic (B) 20. Qiao Gu Reapers (B) Before anyone would try to cut my head off, read my reasoning pls. Making the list I used a pretty simple format. The base of this format is how I think the major regions stand up against each other in term of strength, based on the most recent international tournaments (mainly Worlds and IEM). Currently I think that the regions' power ranking looks like **KR>>>EU>Taiwan>Na>China**. Yes, China is the last. I mean, just face it, they may have very talented players, and they bought out half of the top korean playerbase, yet since MSI, they couldn't show any decent performance in international tournaments. Their style is outdated, unprofessional, and constantly outsmarted by the other major regions. EU just overtake Taiwan for me because it has more "potentially" good teams than Taiwan, even tho I think the current best non-korean team in the world is **ahq e-Sports Club**. And even tho I think **Immortals** is a very strong team right now, NA as a region just couldn't grow up to be even close to their level. And finally, I hope I don't have to explain why Korea, and mostly **ROX Tigers**, are the best right now. I mean, just watch the IEM Wolrd Championship matches. SKT were so ahead of the other teams it wasn't even funny, and they are approximately at the same level as the other S tier korean teams, but the Tigers are just... oh man... they annihiliate EVERYONE! It's incredible. I am starting to think that they may be the best team in the history of League of Legends (sry S3 SKT and S4 Samsung fangirls ;) ). I hope we will see them at MSI, and that they can keep this fantastic level of playing in the entire season! And not just because tigers are my favourite animals and I would love to see tiger skins next year :P, but because this team is the most postitive, most loveable team right now, with the best attitude as well! :) As I said, feel free to disaggree with me! :)

: This is somewhat acceptable, but you cant be sure. I know that we can predict these things based on the level of plays, but it may be pretty unaccurate. We need international events to do an "ok" int. rankings.
You are right, for example we will have a great international event soon, the IEM World Championship, which will give us a good feedback about the teams power level internationally, but I think it is fun to predict these things, that's why I did my list. :)

: Power Rankings 2016.02.17. 1. ROX Tigers 2. SK Telecom T1 3. KT Rolster (+1) 4. Qiao Gu Reapers (+2) 5. Jin Air Green Wings (-2) 6. Immortals (+1) 7. ahq e-Sports Club (-2) 8. G2 Esports 9. H2k-Gaming 10. Samsung Galaxy 11. Longzhu Gaming 12. EDward Gaming 13. Royal Never Give Up 14. Invictus Gaming 15. Cloud9 (+3) 16. Team SoloMid (-1) 17. Unicorns of Love (-1) 18. Team Vitality(-1) 19. Counter Logic Gaming 20. Snake Esports If we should do it like they did it last season then it should only go up to 20, but anyways, i feel the list should look more like this.
I think you underestimate ahq a bit. They were pretty close to Fnatic if not the same level at worlds, and they didn't have many roster changes if any, and still dominating the LMS this split, which is an always underestimated league (I think Riot should give them the same amount of slots at Worlds this year just as the other major regions will have). And I put Jin Air above KT after watching today's matches between the two teams, which Jin Air won, and they looked pretty strong there. Other than that, I see we pretty much agree tho, so it's nice to see! :)
: Not going to do a full one but here are my opinions on the top teams internationally. 1.IMT 2.SKT T1 3.ROX Tigers 4.QG 5.EDG
Yeah, I respect your opinion, but I have to assume that you are a bit fanboying toward Immortals right there. ROX Tigers is definitely the best team in KR right now, which is still by far the best region. Just watch the first game beetween Tigers and SKT this split, it was so perfect from both teams that if nothing else, that match can convince anyone that these two teams are without the doubt the best teams right now. At least that's my opinion.
: Power Rankings 2/16/2016
Since The guys at Lolesports won't do a decent oldschool ranking anymore, I will post my international rankings. I must say that these are only MY OPINIONS, so feel free to disagree with me and let's discuss what You guys think about the teams right now. **Power Rankings 2016.02.17.** 1. ROX Tigers 2.

Well, we can say, one of the Assassin's has an overwhelming populAhrity! (Not like I wouldn't retweet+fav all of her tweets too... #AhriMain #BestchampsareAhriandBraum #SNSD)
: Everything you need to know about the 2015 World Championship
My prediction for the worlds: A group: FNC 6-0 AHQ 3-3 TSM 3-3 Pain 0-6 Tie breaker: AHQ - TSM 1-0 B group: EDG 5-1 KT 4-2 OG 2-4 CLG 1-5 C Group: LGD 5-1 KOO 3-3 H2K 2-4 C9 2-4 D Group: SKT 6-0 IG 4-2 YFW 2-4 BKT 0-4 Knockout stage: Quarter finals: FNC vs KOO 3-2 LGD vs IG 3-1 EDG vs AHQ 3-0 SKT vs KT 3-0 Semi finals: FNC vs LGD 3-2 EDG vs SKT 2-3 FInals: FNC vs SKT 3-2 Season 5 World Champions: **TEAM FNATIC** (And no, I am not Fnatic fanboy, it's an absolutely lens prediction! :P)
: 2015 All-Star Event
Considering that most likely there will be a rule again that allows only max 3 players from a single team, here are my votes right now for the 4 major regions (I don't know LMS teams and players enough to vote for them): EU: Huni, Reignover, xPeke, Niels, Yellowstar NA: Zion, Rush, Bjergsen, Doublelift, Aphromoo KR: Ssumday, Ambition, Faker, Bang, Piccaboo CN: Koro1, Kakao, Godv, imp, Mata Yeah, a bit of korean fest, but hey, they are in western and chinese teams for a reason. ;)
: EDG SKT LGD
I don't understand the hype about LGD at all. The only thing I can think about them is that they are the LPL's Unicorns of Love, whom will finish the regular season with mediocre stats, then starts to roll in playoffs. But to tell you the truth they couldn't convince me since LPL spring's playoffs that they are even top10 teams, not even top3... Pls someone enlighten me why there is so much hype about them?
: Hey guys! We are trying a new video format and would love to know what you think! Do you prefer these HTML5 clips, or Youtube embeds? Let us know!
HTML5 works perfectly for me! :) But if the majority can't open them, then youtube is fine for me too!
: you are not a true fnatic fan if you give xpeke no recognition. like. really. febiven is the weakest part of the squad, not saying he's bad. but if you're smart you know xpeke is better, and will likely be for a long time
No Sir, if u think xPeke's performance this split was even half of his best, then YOU are not a true Fnatic and not a true xPeke fan. I really really like xPeke and the whole season 3-4 Fnatic squad, and that's why I want to see Origen in season 5 Worlds next to Fnatic and UoL, because I hope that xPeke will show his fangs at least at Worlds, like he did at season 3 and season 4 too (remember his 1vs1 against dade's talon). But in this split, he didn't play at his best, and therefore he doesn't deserve an MVP award for me. But I hope he will perform in playoffs and at worlds! ;)

Honorable mentions tho: OG Amazing, OG Mithy, OG Niels, H2K kaSing, H2K Hjarnan, GIA PePiiNeRO.
: **_EU_** Best Coach: FNC Deilor Outstanding Rookie: OG Niels MVP Award: FNC YellOwStaR **_NA_** Best Coach: TL Peter Outstanding Rookie: GV Move MVP Award: TL FeniX
Oh hell, I forgot the secret weapon of OG, the ultimate Diamond 3 ADC OG Cyanide. You are right and I am wrong, he should be the "Outstanding Rookie" of this split!

Everyone wants Cyanide back at the analyst desk for this week, I hope they call him back! :)
: Power Rankings - 7/7/2015
It's so funny to see that the TOP 5 teams are the same for weeks now (except that a team SNAKEd into the 5th place last week, which I still don't understand btw), and the rest of the table is always changing so radically week after week, like the analysts really has no idea how strong or weak these teams are, and they are just randomly dropping and raising their standings for "experiment and fun". :D I really hope Fnatic will win this year's Worlds Finals, would be so epic with 3-2 wins over SKT and EDG in the semis and the finals! Yeah, I know it's fanboyism, and biased, etc., but I don't care, there is always hope! Go Fnatic! :)
I SUPA I (NA)
: Finally I get to see FNATIC rank 6....like I said the past 2 weeks...this team is clearly worlds material
It's so good to see that people from NA also recognize and admire Fnatic's current power level, and also cheer on them, and consider them as a possible western challenger against the korean and chinese powerhouses! If they can keep up their good performance until Worlds, we would finally have a real chance against the eastern teams. Go Fnatic! Go West!
: Reigning Over the Competition
In my opinion, he is always so overlooked when people talk about Fnatic. I mean, yeah, Huni is a very loveable character and a great player, Febiven has the potential to become a legendary mid laner, and YellOwStar is the captain of the team, but I watched almost every Fnatic match this season so far, and I was always really impressed by Reignover's performance. He never really has any bad games, and it's almost always him who set up the table for Febiven and Huni to carry the game later, only if not he is the one who carry it all! So really Good Job Reignover, keep up the good work! Go Fnatic! :)
HernyóSama (EUNE)
: Which article are you talking about, because I just couldn't find it. Would appreciate it if you could link it or something :)
You want me to specifically choose an article where I read intelligent and sophisticated criticism about Fnatic from a NA fan? Here you go: http://eune.lolesports.com/articles/msi-power-rankings Read for example Masalar's comments! :)
: TSM fan here. I don't think there is any sinking involved. TSM wasn't disrespectful, they were honest in their opinions(and obviously wrong in them as well). As for fnatic though holy cow! All the respect in the world for them. They played out of their minds and were phenomenal. They deserved every bit of the credit they've gotten from this. They've definitely turned into my favorite eu team (previously an h2k fan) and I hope that they continue on to progress and develop at this insane rate. (Maybe a 2nd world title for fnatic in the making???? ) At any rate they can only be proud of themselves. GG FNC and all the best this upcoming split!
I am always very happy to see intelligent and proud NA fans commenting anything under the articles (even criticism if it's sophisticated), and thank you for your praise to Fnatic! EU and NA should always cheer for each other against the titans of Korea and China, and hope that one day, one of the western teams can raise the Summoners' Cup again in a World Championship!
: I'm really proud to be a FNATIC follower, and I can't wait to see them at Worlds. I'm sure they are going to be even better than MSI, and their growth in just 3 days was incredible. SKT played really well. There's no shame or sadness in me after that series. It was an awesome series!
I wouldn't be able to agree with you more even if I try! :) GGWP Fnatic! Fnatic vs Unicorns of Love Season 5 Worlds Finals incomin' boys! :D
sonsed (EUNE)
: I really really love that before it started everyone from NA was like''TSM TSM TSM FNC sucks they won't even make it out of groups''. and even downvoting all comments believe in FNC got like -30 at least. and now they say nothing 'cos TSM couldn't make it out of groups and they still said that FNC where bad when they lost 2 SKT. Mad muricans confirmed
Dude, are u really posted the same comment twice in two different articles? I am an EU, and more specifically a massive Fnatic fanboy, and I was really happy seeing the NA fanboys' salty comments, but damn, this is so not cool bro. Pls delete at least one of them. For the sake of EU.
Masalar (NA)
: I will say this, I want Fnatic to win because I know that a game where Fnatic wins will probably be much more exciting than a game where TSM wins. It's also possible that UoL just cause the other teams to make more mistakes since they have such a unique playstyle, and Fnatic will rise to the occasion. They are a very good team, and I really hope they get a chance to prove this at MSI. I may also be slightly biased because I had Huni on my fantasy team and he did so much good stuff for me.
That's how all our wishes should be fulfilled! :D
: I honestly think that Fnatic will beat TSM. Huni will beat Dyrus top no matter what champion he plays, and Febiven will be able to hold his own against Bjergson(Who is the best mid in the west). I think the bot lanes are equal, both have mediocre ADCs who are carried by their supports. The only way Fnatic loses is if Santorin is able to out pressure the lanes early, which is a real possibility. However, so much of the TSM strategy revolves around Bjergson doing well, and i dont see him beating Febiven in lane without considerable help from Santorin. (Which will allow Huni to snowball out of control.)
And in the end, you, who got downvoted by the NA fanboys, had the truth all along! :D
Masalar (NA)
: I disagree. You're trying to make it all about lane match-ups, but professional LoL is much more than that now. Fnatic is a very sloppy team. They're all really good players, but they make a lot of mistakes on a map wide level (and even on an individual level). This makes for some fantastic games to watch...but the better the teams they go against, the more these mistakes will be punished. TSM doesn't make many mistakes. I think that, even if TSM loses in the lane phase, they continually outplay Fnatic on a map wide level, and thus win the game. God, I never thought the day would come that I would defend TSM...
Oh boy, what u did to me? Malasar, you made me, a massive Fnatic fanboy, precarious about Fnatic's win over TSM. Everything you wrote make so much sense, it's logical and sophisticated, and even if it is as hard for me as you can only imagine, I have to admit that everything you wrote down, not just the long comment but the subsequent replies too, are true, and TSM clearly have the advantage over Fnatic. However, I still want to and will believe that Fnatic will beat TSM, not because they are better, but only because I cheer for them! But it was a plesaure for me to read such a well-written opinion about someone from NA, after the never ending "NA>EU" and "EU>NA" stupid comment wars.
: 1st-EDG 2nd-SKT 3rd/4th-TSM&AHQ 5th/6th-Beşiktaş/Fnatic Come at me EU
SKT EDG Fnatic AHQ TSM Besiktas You will see NA fanboys!
: FINALLY!!! FAKER VS BJERG
Bjergsen is probably only the 5th best mid laner there (1st Faker, 2nd easyhoon, 3rd Pawn, 4th Febiven, 5th Bjergsen), so I am more excited about who will play against Pawn, Faker or easyhoon! :)
: Picks & Bans: Fnatic can’t be nailed down at MSI
Oh what do I see here? An EU article? Oh, no, not quite likely, it's more like a MSI article, but still, it's something! :D
: Meh i honestly think that TSM will beat out AHQ and Fnatic with ease. Team has been playing great for the past while now. In a good groove it seems.
Nah I don't think so! If someone can beat TSM, it would be Fnatic, and they will eventually do so! Bjergsen almost always lose vs EU mid laners, and TSM's only player who is stronger than his role counterpart is Wildturtle. And maybe Lustboy mechanically, but he is close with Yellowstar. I think Huni and Reignover will carry the game beetween these two teams, and I presume we will see some 1v1 kill from Febiven to Bjergsen.
: Hello Riot, EU also exists. Origin won EUW Challenger Series ...but no article from RIOT, Enemy Esports had their article. Fnatic won 2015 EUW LCS Spring Split ...but no article from RIOT, TSM had their article. Even Team Liquid had their article for the fight for third place Now they publish an article about TEAM DIGNITAS VS. FUSION and WINTERFOX VS. TDK, but nothing, nothing at all about EUW Challenger Promotion. And in the game EUW has the worst server, and recently Riot increase the price of Riot Points only in this server. I think EUW deserves some love from Riot.
First of all, it's not EUW Challenger Series and EUW LCS, just EU (we have EUNE too...). Secondly, it's ORIGEN! Finally, I totally agree with you tho, at least with what you tried to say about the lack of EU based articles. RITO you should get your s*it together and care for both of your original regions equally, at least in the official website of BOTH region!!! And don't tell me NA has more viewers 'cuz on one hand I don't really care, and on the other hand, it shouldn't be a reason why you don't give us articles about EU! They should be treated equally. And for those NA fanboys over there, who say that NA is more interesting and competitive than EU. Guys, seriously? I almost always fell asleep watching NA matches, but I was always on edge while watched EU matches. There were so exciting and great matches throughout the season, and had the best finals since the start of the LCS series. The crowd in Madrid was the BEST what I ever heard! Not just the forever boring "tsm, tsm, tsm" chanting the whole day like in NA... And that which region is better, I hope we will find out in a bo5 series beetween Fnatic and TSM at the MSI! Go Fnatic!

: Build your 2015 dream team
EU LCS dream team: Top - Vizicsacsi Jungle - Dandy Mid - xPeke ADC - Rekkless Supp - Mata I think Vizicsacsi will be the hot topic in the next EU LCS. He has a very unique champion pool, and a hard carry potential, and I think if he gets a little assist from a jungler like Dandy at the start of his LCS carrier, he will be one hell of a terror at top lane! Dandy is Dandy. Really, do you need any explanation? xPeke is the first I would sign to any team. He is one of the most talented and consistent mid laner in the world, being one of the top 3 mid laners in EU since he became mid after season 1. And he is an absolute fan favourite (with Rekkless), so the team would instantly gain a lot of support from the community. Plus, what is really important imo, he always perform very well at big events, like Worlds (beating dade 1vs1 3 or 4 times), and LCS playoffs. Not to mention, that not anyone give a name to something in the League of Legends (xpeke=backdoor)! :D Rekkless IS the best ADC in the EU LCS right now, and I think he is one of the TOP3 ADC-s of the world. His one and only flaw imo is that sometimes he isn't aggressive enough, like he would always want a perfect KDA. If he can overcome this, with someone like Mata, they would be unstoppable! Mata. The best support in the world, and the MVP of the Season 4 World Championship. He would be the brain of the team, the one who would perform when the others have bad days, and the one who would lead them to the victories! With his skills and consistency, he can help Rekkless be more aggressive, while keeping his almost always perfect KDA. Aaaand, what is really really important, this team would have the biggest possible fanbase in the EU LCS. Rekkless and xPeke were the top2 picks for the ALL STAR 2014 Tournament in Paris, Dandy and Mata (along with Faker and Madlife) are the most known and loved korean players of the western world, and Vizicsacsi will bring an entire nation's support (hungarians) to the scene.
