NRG League is back! The squad returned to the rift last week for another trio of matches live from Riot Arena! Following a 1-2 start to the season, NRG continued to search for their team rhythm against Team Liquid and TSM, falling in a pair of closely contested matches to kick off their Week 2 campaign. Come Friday, the boys put it all together and downed undefeated and reigning LCS Spring Split Champions, Cloud9, in a 30-minute thrashing. Led by midlaner Palafox on Azir, NRG dominated the game from end-to-end, delivering a crucial win in the standings and much-needed momentum heading into Week 3.
And the momentum carried forward yesterday in the longest match to date in this season of LCS against the Golden Guardians. NRG won early team fights and built a big gold lead that spilled over into very late game play where the boys clutched up and took the victory from the top 3 team. Now sitting at 3-4, NRG League has become the team no one wants to face as we take on FlyQuest (Thursday), and Dignitas (Friday) in what is sure to be a massive litmus test for the team moving forward.
