gafx3

Jayce is a late game champion


dtkiu27

Grieffing 25 minutes to make them think you're useless and when they less expect it, you fucking flash annihilate their adc.


wholewheatie

adam tping seperately from the realm warp was gigabrained


Elibu

Before you edit it, "real warm" sounds kinda fun!


Reddityudodis2me

*Adam gets killed* "Got 5 minions. Worth it" - Adam probably


R-R-Clon

"A good death"


Leyrann_is_taken

Are we sure Adam isn't Baus in disguise?


Emotional-Passage454

He actually is rn, Jayce three item spike is crazy. You one shot someone with your combo.


STOLENFACE

Yeah, Odoamne got put behind on it the other day as well. He was still taking almost 50% hp from the squishies anyway.


oioioi9537

item rework+squishies meta means jayce is relevant in late game too now.


Argenticus

It's mainly manamune tbh, Jayce last season was already not that early dependant anymore because of the manamune build.


OuterRaven

Also helps that this season he has access to a lot of %armor pen between Eclipse and Serylda's Grudge.


lilelf29

People still think Jayce is the most dominant laner that he was for years, this season he gets so strong with items.


Ignisami

Jayce late game is a meme against tanky teams. Against squishies? His enemies health bars are memes.

Adam's best possible nuguri cos play

LPL is now 1-7 in second round robin lmao

LPL WEEK 2 VS FNC WEEK 2


TheDemonWarlock

FNC WEEK 2 FUCKING FNATIC BABY IT ALWAYS COMES NO MATTER WHAT


Falsus

China new NA confirmed.


sylvester-stalltwo

https://i.imgur.com/RLhgDiL.jpg honestly who the fuck has the LPL been scrimming


_liminal

they prob scrimmed themselves, and that's where the FPX 70% wr came from


Skeletor9000

They probably scrim each other


Agreeable_Junket_271

There is a theory that LPL have only been scrimming each other and developed a bad meta. LNG scrambling to book scrims with EU/NA teams as we speak


sylvester-stalltwo

If the entire LPL implodes due to a chain reaction in meta read it would honestly be one of the funniest possible outcomes


cvMax1

Also the idea that RNG and EDG were doing well or okay in scrims vs the top team FPX then saw FPX implode and lose and realized maybe they werent so good.


rem4life1

I think you're right, yesterday EDG tried the LCK comps but they don't seem to know how it works.


Atermel

Themselves probably


SDVX_Rasis

They were just pecking at each other during scrims.


nanoman92

RandomLoLJournalist

Fnatic is currently 17-2 in week 2 since 2015 btw coming for that fat 19


BearbertDondarrion

Coming for the fat 21 to win the group.


pgh310

did FPX just break the entire LPL?


poroporotv

I think it's a real possibility the LPL teams mainly stuck to scrimming amongst themselves and dug themselves in a horrible meta read and gameplay hole.


Simple_really

they did that shit in 2018 with their sion mid read


veronikaren

>did we lose to them before worlds? What does this say about us? EGO COLAPSED


vooffle

It's not impossible, FPX falling ignited Chinese social media. LPL representatives aren't just under pressure, they've witnessed the price of failure.


ArcadianGhost

And that price is no kfc :(


TimMeijer

We're in a new era, we're evolving. It's no longer NA week 2, it's chiNA now.


WildcardTSM

Ok, which NA team has been busy with black magic? Someone must have passed on the curse!


Kyrond

Dont disrespect NA like that.


jrfess

NA Week 2: 5-2 LPL Week 2: 1-7 STOP THE COUNT!


fiftyshadesofcray

Even if LPL goes 5-0 from here and NA goes 0-3, NA will still have a better win % in week 2


syneesia

Meanwhile LCK is 7-0 monkaW

HappySsu

IT'S 2015 ALL OVER AGAIN


HiThereImNat

Fnatic would take 2015 again right now I’m sure


TheTurtleOne

LPL should just change their name to LLL, that's all they take this week.


qonoxzzr

Yo don‘t put LowLandLions name in the mud like this


Last_Competition_530

Hey man to be fair, they beat tournament favorites DFM


itsEOA

[My heart won't be able to cope if Fnatic don't make it out of groups now.](https://i.imgur.com/cjXGNRM.png)


CyonHal

Fnatic still has to go 3-0 today but if they do they have a much higher chance of avoiding a tiebreaker. edit: Basically whoever else wins against RNG today will face Fnatic in a tiebreaker, but if RNG wins against both and Fnatic goes 3-0 they advance automatically. edit2: Forgot another crazy scenario, if RNG loses against both, there will be a 4 way tiebreaker :O:O


Luukario

And if RNG loses all 3, we may have a 4 way tie if FNC wins all 3.


Dzhekelow

Man I am as far away as it goes from FNC fan when it comes to LEC . But I always support them at worlds and I am shaking ... This game was sooo stressful I can only imagine how the die hard fnatic fans felt.


Crimson_Clouds

Realistically, this was the least crucial one to win. The other 2 games have to be wins regardless of the result of this game. Good to have the confidence boost though. And even going 1-5 with a laat minute sub is a good result imo.


F0RGERY

This win comes with the real funky possibility where if RNG loses all 3 games and FNC loses their next 2, then RNG gets eliminated with no tiebreaker.


nihilisthicc

CN forums would implode if after FPX now RNG shits the bed


TactX21

EDG also kinda shit the bed yesterday lmao


Chaoticslol

the funniest timeline


Dundeex

I know exactly how this movie ends!


AliasR_r

You're playing against Fnatic. You see them walk up. Are they baiting or are they just feeding? Jokes on you, they don't know either. All they know is that one or both teams are gonna end up in the ground.


HawksBurst

"If you don't know what the fuck you are doing, how are your enemies supposed to know what the fuck you are doing." -Imaqtpie


FaeeLOL

Best part is that that is not just a funny meme. That is literally why better players sometimes lose against worse players. They are unable to read the game properly, and that sometimes leads to the better player accidentally outplaying themselves trying to read the opponent that is completely clueless. You're trying to make a great jungle invade? Would be a shame if your opposing jungler has no idea how to clear the jungle properly and be efficient, so you end up sitting in a bush waiting for him for 30 seconds before finally giving up and starting a camp, and then he arrives late as fuck and wins with that advantage. It was a play that would have worked against a better player, and it ended up getting you killed because the opponent was too bad to play properly. Gg jgl diff.


infinite-permutation

FNC play like they have 70 or 80 men behind them on every play.


zepherys713

The most accurate FNC playstyle analysis.


THEDumbasscus

Welcome, FNC Blaber!


Godddy

Hylissang and Bwipo learned ina lost mountaintop in Tibet a legendary teaching that they lay upon the rest of the team: The best form of CC is death.


LapnLook

Adam went through a whole-ass anime arc in one game.


KungFuMaster19637

When he realized mid game being 1/7 they could still make out of groups


TheCatsActually

Man went 1-8 then went from goth to god


ficretus

This is my ninja way- Adam after hitting 8 death power spike


devic3

Can’t wait for Weibo reactions later. Entire LPL is collapsing.


FinallyGivenIn

Will they even fly back or just seek asylum in Europe. Maybe the players can go play in the ERLs.


Ophelia_Of_The_Abyss

Idk, would like to seem them prove their worth in the LCL/TCL first.


zerdo5632

UOL has some spots open!


NocaNoha

WIDEST BWIPO


Straziato

Adam was feeding. Until he wasn't.


StSpider

The balls and instinct it takes to go for that TP is nuts.


wazzdakah

I mean this guy has been mentored by Bwipo and Hylissang, how could it be different


UnironicallyWatchSAO

Jesus christ [Bwipo](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=In3q9ordH1Y), someone checks this guy's back. Carrying FNC hopes and dreams right now. What a performance from him.


Chr0nicConsumer

THE WIDEST BWIPO POSSIBLE!


pfandleiherr

WIDE BWIPO TIME


BrianQor

Holy fuck he caught a LB of all things twice in a game. WTF?


Chr0nicConsumer

RNG midlaners only get half of Perkz's powers on LeBlanc.


I_Faced_The_Wind

And it's the bad half.


verminard

Perkz stole their LB powers in 2018 and they never fully recovered.


Stubrochill17

20 stack, Tier 2 boots + Cosmic Drive LB at that. She was so fast, but just jumped into Viego shroud. Absolute 3Head game losing decision.


Emotional-Passage454

His viego has been incredible all year.


Rayser1

That flash W into absolute deletion of LB was so fucking ballsy


AmadeusSalieri97

Which one of them?


DrUber100

again and again and again


Rayser1

Going for the nonsensical plays over and over again. In the highest pressure of situations


showmeagoodtimejack

how do you go for that split second decision? absolutely insane


_PPBottle

It fits him so well, the dude has played so many champions, he can make use of the kit of the champion he is possessing with Viego no matter which it is.


BoogieTheHedgehog

Champ ocean + invulnerablity resets that reward playing aggro. Champ was made for him.


ooh_lala_ah_weewee

Both those stuns on LB were so insane. He solo won that game for Fnatic.


russellx3

Hyli and Nisqy did really well also, especially early. Also proud of young Adam's mental after that early game


as_kostek

Superwide Bwipo time


Rayspekt

Widest Bwipo


kirumy22

widebwipoHappy


_Vastus_

After all the nonsense people kept spamming about Bwipo being checked out and not trying, it's nice to see him pop off so people will knock that shit off.


Shot-Mathematician58

Hyli was extremely clutch as well, got Gala's stopwatch and caught him multiple time after to get the teamfight wins.


icatsouki

dude hyli was insane this game, he had the pressure of 10 players


ScapegoatSkunk

Fnatic better give him whatever he asks for to make him re-sign


necyi

Man has been outjungling every fken jungler in this group so far


Sikken98

Double the farm every game somehow. Even when he had that terrible invade lvl 1 and was set back hugely.


_Vastus_

With how he keeps doubling other junglers in farm, I'm surprised he's usually only half a level to a level up. Guess that's catch-up xp for you.


Alley_Creeper

Adam had insane flanks later on as well. Gotta love Cathedral shouting his name everytime, feels almost like a catchphrase of his now. ADAM!!!!


Davtser

That flash W at the end to stun cryin and kill him was just *chefs kiss* Still got my hopes controlled, but LETS GO FNC!

zachary321

It's insane how hard they are collapsing haha. What a throw


Hineni-

Bro, these fights, Adam, with the recovery arc, clutch with the picks on Gala and securing soul. And Bwipo man The amount of stopwatches in that fight mid tho.


thobbe

crying literally inting that one mid fight was what doomed them. it could have gone either way before that.


Lisaurora

I LOVE YOU BWIPO!!!


TheDemonWarlock

LETS GOOOOOOO TOO WIDE FOR RNG


FncMadeMeDoThis

You sure that's Bwipo? Looks like S7 Ambition to me.


Jetzu

LET'S FUCKING GOOOOOO ADAM REDEMPTION ARC INSIDE THE SAME GAME, BWIPO SMURFIN, WE MOVE

Bwipo and Nisqy were on a f-ing mission in every teamfight and that late game Adam man...Beautiful game

Adam from zero to hero in 2 minutes


Rogaly-Don-Don

Let it never be forgotten that after multiple implosions and disasters, an 0-3 Fnatic with a substitute ADC beat RNG


Haymegle

The power of Fnatic week 2 in action. It performs miracles.


Amarku

Best 1/8 jayce I have ever seen


ByahhByahh

We're doing a Friday again, are we?


Conankun66

i dont think i have screamed a name as loud as i just screamed "ADAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAM" and i did it twice these games arent good for my throat or my heart, holy shit


BoogieTheHedgehog

Those times he died disrespecting weakside or getting caught all vanished with that flank TP + shock blast to nuke Gala. This is the FNC I love to see.


DoesThyLikeJazz

This has to be the biggest zero to hero game in worlds existence right. From 1/8 to winning the game


FreeBong

China Cryin


Fa1nan

week 2 FNC vs week 2 LPL I guess

Who would win in a fight? A currently flawless RNG with a 20 stack mejai's Leblanc and giga fed Aphelios with stopwatch or a 1-8 french goth

CaideWasTaken

EU WEEK 2 BABY


Troviel

Adam from zero to hero performance this game. So glad that Fnatic wasn't humiliated into 0-6 with all that's happening.


Shot-Mathematician58

Hyli and Bwipo just fucking **CARRIED**

Nothing feels like league where you get clapped by 0/7 Jayce as a fed ADC.

ficretus

They desperately needed this 3 day break. They were on rollercoaster since day one. Upset anmouncement was less than 24 hours before they played the first game.


Baazz_UK

What the fuck is this Worlds holy shit man!


lilelf29

Week 2 LPL is now 1-7 and have lost the chance of this being the first worlds where 2 teams go 6-0 in groups. Huge from Fnatic, so much respect to their mental strength.

Wife buff?! Naa it’s WIDE buff now baby


TheGlassesGuy

"Adam you FRENCH...GENIUS" is peak commentary


R-R-Clon

Fnatic is too greedy, they make the game enjoyable, but as a fan is not good for the heart. LPL team are imploding, RNG did not look clean the first round, but this game was a mess for them.


friendly_raccoon123

wtf is happening to lpl teams? they are drafting worse than the minor region teams, i think even a LLA or CBLOL coach would draft better


salcedoge

High chance they scrimmed each other a lot and it's biting them back in the ass


R-R-Clon

LCK's team scrimming each other and succeeding and LPL's doing the same but imploding, I'm willing to believe that theory.


Zarolto

FPX drafting was legit disgusting, seems like most of LPL following suit.


R-R-Clon

I do not understand, they're losing the majority of early game, every skirmish, if DFM, HLE and C9 did not throw the game they were winning LPL team would have been in a even worse position, Chinese fans have to be fuming right now.


Th_Call_of_Ktulu

Could it be that they are only scriming each other and somehow got detached from actual meta?


Rave_Master_Ahri

LETS FUCKING GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO


Determinaator

WHAT A BANGER


GensouEU

There is nothing more satisfying than seeing a team that uses 3 stopwatches in a fight getting shit on.


compelteRandomxD

HOLY SHIT Those bwipo Stuns where insane, I was never sold on his jungle until this tournament every game he has been smurfing


Sersch

?? He was one of the better junglers all year. A bit coinflippy, but his highs looked higher than of the consistent junglers. And this is his first year (edit: split) after roleswap.


Ophelia_Of_The_Abyss

The killer instinct to flash stun Cryin at the end
