League of LegendsLCK had more matches this morning as SK Telecom T1 took back over first place in the league by taking out Samsung Galaxy 2-0, mostly by straight outplaying them in bot lane. MVP also took out ROX Tigers 2-0 to keep their solid season rolling.
At DreamHack Masters Las Vegas CS:GO event, day one matches were a bit of a surprise. In group A, No. 1 Astralis in the WWG CS:GO Team Rankings easily took out compLexity Gaming 16-5, while No. 9 OpTic Gaming sporting a new lineup with Hiko and Peacemaker as coach upset No. 6 North 16-11.
Group B proved to be closer than most expected, as No. 3 Virtus.pro narrowly won against a surprisingly strong Misfits team. No. 14 Fnatic, expected by many to continue their resurgence this tournament, fell to No. 11 Gambit Gaming 16-11.
In Group C, No. 2 SK Gaming destroyed TyLoo 16-5. In a close match that maybe shouldn't have been, No. 8 Cloud9 finished an upset of No. 5 Ninjas in Pyjamas as NiP continues to struggle.
Finally, Group D features a couple of teams that are switching players, so maybe all bets are off here. No. 4 FaZe Clan only narrowly defeated No. 22 Renegades 16-14, and No. 18 mousesports upset No. 7 Natus Vincere 16-12. Na'Vi needed to show everyone that they were back on top of their game, and this performance certainly doesn't do that.
In the Hearthstone ESL Trinity Series, Team Liquid defeated G2 Esports 6-5, while Tempo Storm took out compLexity Gaming 6-3. Tempo Storm's player Gaara joined the show today to talk about the current Hearthstone meta and changes.
