It took until the very end of Week 3, but there are no longer any unbeaten teams in the League of Legends Pro League. Both Rogue Warriors and Invictus Gaming were handed losses this week, which has set up a three-way tie for first in the East Region and a two-way tie in the West Region as we head into the Rift Rivals break.
Let’s start with the busiest region of all in the East Region. This highlight of this region in Week 3 came from the highly-anticipated matchup between Invictus (5-1) and Royal Never Give Up (5-1). Both teams had been on quite the tear so far this split, but it was Invictus that struck first in this series as it took a 1-0 lead early. From then on, though, it was the Jian “Uzi” Zi-Hao show as the RNG AD carry rattled off a combined 14/3/11 KDA (kills/deaths/assists) in the final two games to push RNG to a big win that catapulted it to the top of the standings. With its 2-0 win over Vici Gaming (1-5) this week also in hand, RNG is on a five-game win streak and looking incredibly dangerous.
They have a long season ahead of them, but based on the numbers, it’s not looking good for the “Big 2” of the NA LCS.
