After a worryingly sluggish start, TSM appear to have righted the ship for now.

TSM played their most dominant– albeit uneventful– game of the 2021 LCS Spring Split so far in a near-perfect win over Immortals today.

Nobody is rather sure what coach Bjergsen and business have actually put into the water at the TSM facility, however this group looks totally reborn. They’re playing confident, cohesive, aggressive League of Legends for the most extended stretch of time all split.

The dive structure they drafted worked to perfection as Huni, Spica, and SwordArt all took turns escorting Lost on Kai’Sa to anywhere the Immortals bottom lane chose to conceal at any given moment, and bullied them mercilessly into shoveling gold into Lost’s checking account.

In a meta that rewards aggressiveness and playmaking around wave management to allow these “roaming death teams,” TSM have actually improved on their previous efficiencies in this respect. But one of the most significant knocks against TSM had actually been their inability to speed up leads and liquidate video games when they should, which fans of the org had hoped would be at least partially corrected by SwordArt calling the shots from the support position.

It looked plenty remedied on Sunday.

For Immortals, it appears to be more of the very same. Revenge and Madness reveal specific minutes of brilliance, however the macro and experience just hasn’t developed enough to translate into constant wins. Provided their mission this year, nevertheless, this is enough. They do likewise have great results to their name, notably two wins against Evil Geniuses and Team Liquid. Revenge solo-killing one of the finest leading laners in the league in Alphari in the win over Liquid is a moment that can never be taken away from him.

TSM will seek to keep the great times rolling into week three when they liquidate the very first half of the split versus Evil Geniuses, 100 Thieves, and Dignitas. Catch the entire slate of LCS action all weekend long as it kicks off Feb. 19 at 5pm CT
