Huge Upsets in the LCS Super Week
The LCS Super Week is over and the viewers had the chance to see many impressive games, upsets and teams having their ups and downs in what is described as the most entertaining week of the LCS so far.

What we saw during previous weeks continued in the Super Week as well. The overall aggression of the teams led to towers being destroyed early most of the time, even before the 4 minute mark. Global objectives proved crucial and the outcome of the fights occuring around them generally indicated which team would take the victory. Team Dignitas is now on the #1 spot after 4 weeks of the LCS with Crumbzz and Scarra being literally everywhere for their team, while Curse fell to the 2nd place after losing to CLG and Dignitas. GGU tried their best and won against Team Vulcun for the second time but both of these teams have to go through a lot of training to improve their performance and advance in the standings.
In the European scene, teams are somehow trying to adapt the new aggressive meta. We saw almost every team try to apply pressure to solo lanes and control the Dragon pit as well as buffs in general. Gambit Gaming proved to be the strongest as they continued their winning streak by beating every opponent they faced. Fnatic lost to Gambit and also to Copenhagen Wolves in arguably the most thrilling game we’ve seen so far in the whole LCS. Wolves came out strong this week and won three out of five games. On the other hand, Evil Geniuses seemed to be on a rough spot as they won only a single game and lost the remaining four. According to the team members there are problems with communication and proper focus during the games, which they will work on fixing. Dragonborns tried to change the whole meta by inventing a team composition without an ADC. While it worked against the struggling EG, SK shut them down and with hyrqBot applying pressure all over the map, SK managed to win the game pretty convincingly. Ozone GIANTS beat only EG. The game began in favor of EG, but the GIANTS came back fast, grouped up and won the game.
There will be no matches the next week. The LCS will continue on the 15th, 16th and 17th of March with 12 NA games, and on the 16th and 17th with 8 EU games. Meanwhile, the action moves to CeBIT with the Intel Extreme Masters finale, featuring 12 world class teams fighting for the #1 spot.
What to Watch
Curse vs CLG and Curse vs TSM are going to be two of the most interesting games of week five.
On EU, Fnatic will face EG and SK. Gambit has no matches on the fifth week, so this will be the chance for the other teams to close the gap.
Can Curse manage to rise to the top again? Is there any team that can stop Dignitas and knock them off the first spot? Will EG manage to overcome their problems and prove again how strong they can be? Which teams do you support and why? Share your thoughts on the past four weeks below!
