The NA LCS Summer Split Week 8 is upon us!  The North American LCS has proven it’s completely unpredictable this Split, but week 8 looks likely to throw up few surprises.

The game to watch is probably Team Dignitas vs Immortals. Dignitas will want to prove their loss to Cloud9 was a slip-up and Immortals will want to power on to cement their top of the table place.

Phoenix1 vs Echo Fox

Both teams have it all to play for as they struggle to avoid a bottom 3 spot in the LCS. The bookies seem to favour Phoenix1 although it’s hard to see why. The game really could go either way and might depend on how Pirean adjusts to being the new permanent mid laner.

Prediction – either team

Team Liquid vs Immortals

Despite Dardoch’s return don’t expect any fireworks in this game. Team Liquid’s 2 series winning streak should come to a screeching halt. Immortals should find an easy victory to secure that top spot.

Prediction – Immortals win.

FlyQuest vs Team SoloMid

FlyQuest needs a victory, but they won’t find it against TSM. They should be somewhat mollified by the fact that the other two bottom teams are facing each other this week. Team SoloMid will correct last week’s minor set back against Team Dignitas.

Prediction – TSM win.

Team Envy vs Counter Logic Gaming

With Dardoch out, CLG may be slightly unsettled. Team Envy are no pushovers but I still expect CLG’s superior game plans to win out. All eyes will be on Omargod to see how he takes the pressure.

Prediction – CLG win.

Team Dignitas vs Immortals

Dignitas has caused a lot of upsets in recent weeks. The big question is whether Cloud9 was a blip in their new end of season improvement or a new normal. For their part, an Immortals win here will put the pressure back onto TSM and CLG at the top of the table.

Prediction – Immortals win – but don’t be surprised at another Dignitas upset.

Team Liquid vs Cloud9

Every week is a tough week for Team Liquid and this is no exception. Cloud9 are looking for consistency and they will need a convincing win against Team Liquid to show that they have it. I expect nothing less.

Prediction – Cloud9 win.

Cloud9 vs FlyQuest

The second of this week’s series that Cloud9 need to win. With so many ex Cloud9 players this games always a grudge match and that can throw up surprises. Still, I believe Cloud9 will win out in the end.

Prediction – Cloud9 win.

Counter Logic Gaming vs Phoenix1

On paper this is an easy week for CLG, and they close it out against bottom of the table Phoenix1. CLG want to keep the chase for first place alive. Phoenix1 just want to survive. Once again, Omargod will need to prove his worth.

Prediction – CLG win.

Team SoloMid vs Team Envy

Nothing can be taken for granted this split but TSM should beat Team Envy. Team Envy are playing for fourth place but as with many of the mid table teams, can’t seem to make things stick. This could be a series won in straight games.

Prediction – TSM win.

Echo Fox vs Team Dignitas

Before the Summer Split break this might have been a game that could go either way. Since then Dignitas have looked mostly impenetrable. They have a tough game against Immortals, but even a loss there should just make them more focused for Sunday’s series.

Prediction – Dignitas win.

NA LCS Summer Split Week 8 Summary

The bottom and mid table teams have it all to play for but don’t expect too much movement at the top. An Immortals slip-up against Team Dignitas will throw things wide open but otherwise, it’s a pretty standard week for the NA’s 3 best teams.
