Cloud9 vs TSM Showmatch Slated for July 10

by in League of Legends | Jul, 7th 2020

As far as age-old match-ups go, Cloud9 vs TSM is about as historic and entertaining as possible. This is the North American el clasico, and it needs no introduction. These matches always bring in a ton of viewers and with good reason: both organizations have storied histories and pedigrees that can make your mouth water. They’ve won it all (on multiple occasions) and have entertained fans and viewers for many years in continuity.

For the long-time followers of the LCS, this is like a tale that’s old as time. And yet, for whatever reason, it’s still as fresh and enticing as ever — a testament to both organizations, their longevity, and dedicated fan bases. Whenever these two giants face-off, we are not left indifferent.

A Throwback Showmatch to Remember

This time, we’re in for a real treat with a Cloud9 vs TSM throwback showmatch slated for July 10! We still don’t know who’ll compete, but both organizations are promising “iconic” line-ups. Although fans have already started speculating, it’s hard to guess who’ll compete on the side of TSM as they had many different roster iterations over the years. Marcus “Dyrus” Hill is pretty much a given, but whether or not we’ll see the return of Andy “Reginald” Dinh, Brian “TheOddOne” Wyllie, and Alex “Xpecial” Chu remains to be seen.

As for Cloud9, William “Meteos” Hartman, Hai “Hai” Du Lam, Zachary “Sneaky” Scuderi, and Daerek “LemonNation” Hart are all but officially confirmed. If they get An “BalIs” Van Le back as well (and they really should), it’ll truly be a reunion for the ages!

Both giants will compete in the LCS on Saturday, which makes this whole thing much more entertaining. We’ll see the past juxtaposed with the present, a true gift to those who tuned in weekly.

The North American LCS might not be as entertaining as it once was, but there was a time when Cloud9 and TSM reigned supreme to the delight of many. It is still etched in everyone’s memory, a time we all hold dear in our hearts.

Tune in to this week’s Friday Night League as this showmatch between Cloud9 and TSM is bound to deliver!
