To nobody’s surprise, Cloud9 speedran their way to the 2020 LCS Spring title. The regular season winners swept FlyQuest 3-0, becoming the most dominant champions in any single LCS split.
Despite the overwhelming odds against them, FlyQuest put on a good resistance in game 1 and sparred with Cloud9 for almost 40 minutes, before finally surrendering their Nexus. Already in the opening game, however, Cloud9 showcased their superior macro control and teamfighting synergy, despite occasional individual mistakes.
Games 2 and 3, on the other hand, became progressively more one-sided. Between those two games, Cloud9 gave out a total of two towers and zero neutral map objectives, dominating FlyQuest every step of the way. Game 2 finished with an overwhelming 16K gold lead for Cloud9, which left no doubt who the LCS Spring champion will be.
Cloud9’s championship run ended with a 26-2 record, or 92.5% win-rate — an unprecedented number in LCS history. C9 now join G2 Esports in the 2020 Mid-Season invitational and will look to do better than Counter Logic Gaming and Team Liquid, who both lost their MSI finals 0-3.
