TSM’s disappointing start in the NA LCS

Team SoloMid has started 0-2 in the first week of the NA LCS

While many hyped Team SoloMid to be one of the top teams in the NA LCS before it started, TSM has fell short many by miles. TSM has long established themselves as one of the best, if not the best team in the NA LCS, however, the are struggling in 2018. The team had placed first in the NA LCS in 2017, however, moving to the near year, they had changed most of their core roster, only keeping Bjergsen and Hauntzer.

“I think that we’ll do better in the next weeks, you can’t go worse than 0-2”

TSM’s bot lane definitely underperformed, while they were hyped to be the best bot lane in the west, not only EU, they failed to carry, sometimes even going behind. In an interview, Mikeyoung stated the team had already expected the slow start, however, they did not for see it being this bad.

Team SoloMid’s owner also made an on stae live bet with Steve, the owner of team liquid, with the losing team having to donate $15,000 to the winner’s choice. As a result of TSM’s overhype and underperformance, Reginald has been hit in both directions.
