It’s that time of year again.
League of Legends is holding its 2017 World Championship right now. Can’t say I’ve been into the scene much this year, but something caught my attention. An newcomer team, composed of pros who hadn’t before played on the Worlds stage, are actually doing really well. I like myself a good underdog story, so when I saw who they were up against in the quarterfinals — none other than the three time world champions — I couldn’t help but want to see them play.
I’ve seen the first three games of the best-of-five now (they played live early in the morning), and the misfits are leading two to one! They made some very unconventional choices, but it worked out brilliantly for them. Watching their support player put the team of his back, I think I have a new idol. He’s making all the plays, and making them well!
Tomorrow I’m going to see how this plays out. Incredibly excited, and if they somehow manage to take down the reigning champs, this Worlds is going to be a crazy one.
