At the beginning of the 2020 Summer Split, lots of LCS fans thought that Cloud9 would stay the best League of Legends team in The United States and Canada. Although they still look extremely strong, Evil Geniuses have actually knocked them down a peg by handing them their second loss of the season.

Evil Geniuses have not been the most constant group when it pertains to results this split. As an outcome, they chose an extreme roster switch that moved Heo “Huni” Seung-hoon and recently gotten mid laner Greyson “Goldenglue” Gilmer into the beginning lineup.

It was the beginners that made all the distinction for EG. Goldenglue had a terrific early game on Zoe, landing well-placed bubbles and dealing a heap of damage that assisted his team set up several successful skirmishes.

Huni, on the other hand, had a good early game but made the greatest effect later in the match. He ended up with the greatest damage dealt in the game with over 26,000, while Goldenglue had the second-highest amount with simply over 21,000 damage.

This loss shouldn’t worry Cloud9 fans too much, but they ought to stay a bit cautious. Their group structure wasn’t anything too special, and they were just outplayed in numerous teamfights. Hopefully for Cloud9 fans, this is just a bump in the roadway for C9 in their quest for back-to-back LCS championships.

On the other side of Summoner’s Rift, Evil Geniuses fans should be thrilled to see how far their team can opt for this new lineup. Huni and Goldenglue looked terrific, however they still have to show that this wasn’t just a lucky efficiency.

Goldenglue said in a post-game interview that this lineup is “the very best group he’s ever played on,” which he nearly ended up being a coach before he was provided a spot on EG. The 23-year-old is only signed till next week, however after this weekend, we might see him signed by a company soon.

Catch EG in action as soon as again when the LCS returns next week on Friday, July 24.
