Elevating to Victory

| Article | March 6th, 2017

Three out of Six total weeks have completed last weekend. This was the final week before the SPL goes on a one week BYE break. Heading into this week was important for all teams to close out the first half of the SPL Spring Split strong to have enough momentum for the second half. Just like the previous week, there were a few surprising results with some splits and some win-less teams finally finding a small groove for themselves.

 

Europe

Elevate 1-1 Team Dignitas

Lion Guard Esports 1-1 CycloneGG

NRG eSports 1-1 CycloneGG

Lion Guard Esports 0-2 Valance Squad

Elevate 1-1 Obey Alliance

Sanguine Esports 0-2 Team Dignitas

 

Elevate did a great job this week finding their first two wins of the Spring Split. Not only did they find these wins, but they did so with a new mid laner and solo laner. Nulisa, the former mid laner for Elevate in the previous Fall Split, alongside N0Numbers who was a challenger cup player before joining Elevate. To top it all off, the two wins out of four were against two powerful teams of Team Dignitas and Obey Alliance. This could be what looks to be a great start for Elevate to bounce back in the second half of this split but the road will not get any easier for them as their next opponent will be Valance Squad. CycloneGG was another win-less team out of Europe at the beginning of Week Three. The sophomore squad found their first two wins as well as they took out both Lion Guard Esports and more impressively NRG eSports.

North America

Noble eSports 2-0 In Memory of Gabe

eUnited 0-2 Team Allegiance

In Memory of Gabe 1-1 Team Eager

Noble eSports 0-2 Flash Point

eUnited 2-0 SoaR Gaming

Luminosity 2-0 Team Allegiance

Luminosity jump the ranking from second to first this week as Memory of Gabe hindered Team Eager’s win momentum to hold onto that #1 spot. Noble eSports had a great start to the beginning of Week Three as they found two victories against Gabe but then the tables have turned as the winning less Flash Point surprised everyone on Sunday taking both games away from the black and yellow crew. SoaR Gaming continue to struggle heavily as they find themselves without a win for the third week in a row but this time their fate was out of their control as their former solo laner, Benji, jumped ship to eUnited at an awkward timing for SoaR’s as their substitutes weren’t available to cover.

 

Team Points Wins Splits Losses
Luminosity 10 3 1 0
Team Eager 8 2 2 0
In Memory of Gabe 7 2 1 1
eUnited 7 2 1 1
Noble Esports 5 1 2 2
Team Allegiance 4 1 1 2
Flash Point 3 1 0 3
SoaR Gaming 0 0 0 3
