Here we are again: With more than a little déjà vu, North American clubs are 6-3 after the first week of games at Worlds. Its the same three teams -- Team SoloMid, Counter Logic Gaming and Cloud9 -- and the same overall regional record with the second round-robin looming.Last year, the North American trio crashed and burned in the second week of Worlds, finishing 0-10 with none of them making it out of the group stage. While itd be hasty to say, Dont be worried. Everything will be fine, there are differences that make the 2016 North American trio different from its predecessor, even if the logos, team uniforms and a majority of the players are the same.There is hope, North America.Team SoloMidLast year: 1-2 This year: 2-1The easiest team to calm the nerves of North American hopefuls, TSM is a completely different group from that of the 2015 World Championships. Last year, S?ren Bjergsen Bjerg was saddled with the responsibility to not only output almost all of his teams damage but be the main shotcaller as well. The funny thing about 2015 TSM, though, is that they were unexpectedly promising for large parts of the first week. In all three of its games in the first week, TSM, with better, decisive shotcalling, could have exited with a 3-0 record. TSM had leads going into the mid-game of all three contests that first week, and it was the miscommunication from the team members and porous play around objectives like Baron that plagued the squad.In 2016, Bjergsen has an upgraded team around him in almost every position, and most importantly, when looking back at last year, hes been given help with the shotcalling in the form of his star AD carry Yiliang Doublelift Peng. Although the team lost to Chinas Royal Never Give Up in the opening match after gaining a lead in the early game, it isnt really comparable to last years blunders. Mispositioning and getting caught out is what led to RNG winning the game over TSM, which is something that can be easily fixed. TSM lost last year due to a fractured team that couldnt get on the same page, and that is something much harder to fix, especially in the middle of a tournament playing against the top teams in the world.TSMs win against Samsung Galaxy at this years World Championships is what should give TSM fans (and North Americans) hope that this is a team that can get out of the Group of Death.During an interview with Flash Wolves ace jungler Karsa, I asked him why his team continually has trouble with North American teams, and he answered: With North American teams, once they get an advantage in the game, theyre really good at snowballing atop of it and capitalizing on [chances]. Thats what the North American teams at this tournament have shown at their brightest moments. For TSM, that was in the game against Samsung where it got a lead early and continually nurtured its lead in a healthy fashion before watching it become a blazing fire of a blowout. TSM were up almost 4k gold leaving the early game, near 9k by the 20-minute mark, and then almost 12k gold by 30-minutes.The Baron, which plagued TSM throughout the 2015 World Championships, was taken a little after the 30-minute mark, and the North American champion had the game won before the clock hit 34 on the timer. Explosive, clinical, and efficient. Were not talking to the level of SK Telecom T1 or Samsung White at their peak, but TSM, when it plays like it did against Samsung, is a problem for any team in the competition, including any of the South Korean or Chinese teams.Cloud9Last year: 3-0 This year: 2-1Cloud9, as weird as it sounds, look stronger going into Week 2 at a 2-1 record -- one of those wins coming from the opposing team showing its ineptitude to close the game -- than it did last year when it was 3-0 when the second round-robin began.Last year, C9 (and CLG) used a quick turret pushing strategy in the first week of the tournament centered around the likes of Tristana and a mid laner like Veigar or Azir. The strategy worked, the teams didnt adapt, and the two teams, especially C9, profited from the clubs slow on the uptake. Going into Week 2 of that year, I thought that C9, a team known for its ability to pull rabbits out of their hats in terms of strategy, would have something new to surprise opponents. C9 didnt, and it lost four straight games, getting knocked out of the tournament.Regardless, Cloud9 that year was never supposed to be at the World Championships. The teams roster was like a leaky boat plugged up with a lot of various objects found around the house. For a while, the boat was able to sail next to the other prized boats in the sea, yet, when the conditions started to test the craftsmanship, the bandages blew off, and the vessel sank.This year, however, Cloud9 is actually sturdy. The team wasnt thrown together at the last minute, and it has a starting five that has consistently gotten better as the summer split progressed. The enforced standard lanes has let them focus more around its star top laner Jung Impact Eon-yeong, a former world champion and a force in the early game with threats in all three lanes.C9s game against I May was similar to TSMs dissection of Samsung Galaxy, albeit a bit less impressive. It got the lead through an impressive early game kick started with a gank in the top lane, enabling Impact. C9 snowballed it from there, taking victories across the map while controlling the objectives. After giving up an early dragon around the eight minute mark, C9 was spotless throughout the mid game, not allowing the Chinese team to knock down its first tower until after the 30-minute mark.Despite Flash Wolves bungling its game against C9 in the middle of the matchweek, C9 isnt winning with gimmicks this time around. The big matchup for the boys in blue and white will be the rematch against the very same FW. If it can get Impact a winning matchup and get him (and the team) ahead early, the teams composure and wherewithal to close out a game should lead them to at least a second-place seed leaving Group B. Issue is, if the Wolves can grapple away the lead early out of the laning phase and get its fast-tempo pace going that even stymied SKT T1, C9 cant count on another 70-minute game where the Wolves cant unlock the opposing base.Counter Logic GamingLast Year: 2-1 This Year: 2-1CLG, like C9, abused the fast-pushing strategy before being figured out in Week 2. This year, the Mid-Season Invitational finalist appears to be a better prepared and well-functioning team across the board.In all three games CLG has played this tournament so far, it has had a chance to win. Its two wins were, no doubt, controlled and punched away accordingly. CLG got leads against G2 Esports and the ROX Tigers through nifty ganks in the bottom lane. Against G2 Esports, it was a perfectly timed flank by Darshans Poppy that started CLGs snowball, and it was Huhis Aurelion Sol roam against the Tigers that began rolling it in that game.Although on paper CLG lack the individual firepower C9 and TSM possess pound-for-pound, it makes up for it in intuition and impeccable teamplay. In CLGs wins against G2 and ROX, both games ended under 37-minutes, and the North American club did its due diligence in gathering vision, setting up objectives, and never letting the opponent have an opportunity to pull a fast one on them. G2 was only able to manage a meager three turrets (no mid tower) with no other objectives, and ROX was only allowed to grab a single turret (again, no mid tower) and one dragon for its trouble. In both of its wins, CLG didnt allow the opposing team to knock down its mid tower, and thus blocked any easy entry point for its opponent to access its jungle.When Flash Wolves lost to CLG last year, it still managed six turrets, three dragons, and one Baron. Even Pain Gaming, who lost in a quick 30-minutes, considerably shorter than either G2 or ROX this year, got four towers and a dragon before losing. CLG were winning games, but it wasnt controlling them.This year, like TSM and C9 have in their marquee victories, CLG is taking control and playing like a team worthy of the quarterfinals. Thats not to say all three will get out -- SSG and RNG are formidable oppositions for any team in the tournament -- but unlike the disaster of 2015, the three North American teams are equipped to advance past the group stage.No gimmicks. No one man shows. No one-trick pony strategies.Win or lose, North America will go into Week 2 with legitimate contenders for one of the first times since the early days of League of Legends. Well see how far that gets them. Cheap Lions Jerseys . -- PGA TOUR Canada member Steve Saunders took a three-stroke lead Saturday in the Web. Womens Lions Jerseys .com) - The Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks both take aim at their first wins of the season on Saturday, as the Canucks open their home slate at Rogers Arena. . The Browns coaching search remains incomplete. Tyrell Crosby Womens Jersey . "Theyve both been real good," said Babcock. "Havent changed our minds." A decision has seemingly been made - Sundays Group B-deciding tilt against Finland ahead - but it could not have been an easy one. Price opened the tournament with a sturdy 19-save performance against the Norwegians, yielding just one goal. Frank Ragnow Womens Jersey . Just as Montreal was settling into the first full working week of a new year, the Impact announced the appointment of their new head coach. AUBURN, Ala. -- Sean White will open this season like he finished the last one: As Auburns starting quarterback.Coach Gus Malzahn proclaimed White the winner of the three-man race over Jeremy Johnson and junior college transfer John Franklin III after Thursdays practice. White will start Sept. 3 against No. 2 Clemson.Weve got three guys that can run our offense but Sean Whites the first one that will be out there, Malzahn said. Were excited for Sean. Hes earned it. Hes a guy that has experience in our offense last year. Hes a tough guy. Hes in a good spot. Hes in a good spot to lead this team. The teams going to rally around him so Im excited for him.White replaced Johnson as starter in midseason and started five games before sustaining knee and foot injuries against Arkansas. He reclaimed the No. 1 job in the Birmingham Bowl win over Memphis.He was the first Auburn freshman quarterback to make his starting debut against an SEC opponent since Jeff Klein against Tennessee in 1999. White was also the first Auburn passer to throw for 250-plus yards in three consecutive games since Dameyune Craig in 1997.But he only threw one touchdown pass against four interceptions, two of them coming in the bowl game.Now, hes emerged on top from a competition that carried through spring until nine days before the opener.It feels really good, White said. I feel blessed to be in this position, and I feel responsible to lead this team against Clemson. Im happy coach put this responsibility on me and my teammates believe in me. I feel like they have a reason to believe in me. Welll be ready to go come Saturday.dddddddddddd.White said theres a night and day difference from last season, when Johnson opened as not only the clear starter but regarded as a potential star.Before the season, I prepared hard, I wasnt slacking, but I wasnt preparing to go out and start and lead the team until my name was called on, White said. This year, I had all spring, all preseason to prepare like Im the starter. Thats been a huge difference as far as timing with the receivers and just being able to go out there and run the plays, not think, and being able to lead everybody.Malzahn didnt disclose a pecking order behind White. The coach said White ran a 4.6 40 in the spring.Tailback Kerryon Johnson said its a relief to have the quarterback question answered finally. He said theres more to White than just being nice.Hes obviously a really nice guy and a really great friend, Johnson said. But I think Sean has a little mean streak to him. Hes not going to back down from anybody. Hes a spicy player and he loves competition. Thats the thing that people get out of playing with him. They really get that attitude that you can really feed off of as a team.Jeremy Johnson had already had a tough week before losing the quarterback battle. His grandfather, Ojedita Johnson, was killed in a car accident in Lowndes County on Wednesday morning.Our thoughts and prayers go out to him, Malzahn said. Thats a tough situation. Were all hurting for him. Youth NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Gear Camo China NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Online ' ' '
