2016 NA LCS Spring Finals: TSM vs. CLG teasers

The NA LCS Spring Finals are still a few days away, and the anticipation for the championship is growing every single day.


 

In just four days, the North America League of Legends Championship Series (NA LCS) will have one of the region’s most anticipated finals of all-time between Counter Logic Gaming (CLG) and TSM.

This will be a rematch of last year’s Summer Finals, and that series was swept by CLG as they won their first ever NA LCS title. As for TSM, a win this weekend would make it their fourth NA LCS title, and their first since last year’s Spring Split.

What makes things so intriguing this time around is the path each team took to get here. CLG went through so many drastic changes before the split, and most people expected them to be an average team. However, they showed how good they are as a unit and finished second-best in all of North America for the regular season.  TSM, on the other hand, has a completely different story. They built a super team coming into the split and everyone expected them to run over their region. TSM proved that success can’t be bought overnight, and they struggled all split long and barely even made the playoffs. Surprisingly, though, things have clicked for them in the postseason and they are looking like the super team that we have all waited for.

People would have said you were crazy if you told them a month ago that this would be the finals matchup, and that’s what makes it so exciting. The hype for this series is everywhere, and some awesome teaser videos have started to come out. To start, here is an amazing video from yesterday that was made by a fan:

Today, Riot released their own teaser for the monster series. It doesn’t hold a candle to the previous one that was made by a fan, but it is still very cool in its own right:

The matchup is still days away, so there’s sure to be even more hype created until the series finally happens.

The great thing about this finals is that it doesn’t seem like it could possibly disappoint. Even if it is a stomp for one of the teams, it would still be a great story for whichever team came out victorious.

Sunday cannot get here soon enough.
