3 Takeaways for Team Liquid from the Spring Season Week 3

Team Liquid is looking strong after Spring Season Week 3.

Team Liquid held onto first place after Spring Season Week 3 of LCS 2022, winning over Evil Geniuses and CLG. FlyQuest are the last contender in the first place tie (TL owns the head-to-head), as 100 Thieves, Cloud9 and Dignitas lost matches over the weekend. The 2-0 match score was a welcome return for CoreJJ who started his first matches as a North American resident. Things are looking on the up-and-up for this Team Liquid roster. Here are 3 takeaways from the week.

Team Liquid is One of Three Teams to Not Drop a Game to the Bottom Four

FlyQuest and Team Liquid held onto their 5-1 records by not losing to bottom teams. Going down the list, every other team except one has faltered against someone is the bottom four. Immortals upset 100T and EG. CLG took down C9. DIG lost to EG. IMT lost to TSM, and TSM lost to EG.

That only leaves Golden Guardians as the third team not to lose to the bottom four. More often than not, consistency is all that separates the best teams in the LCS. The best teams in history do not drop to underdogs, and consistently win against other challengers. Team Liquid still has to play TSM, DIG and GG in the first round robin.

Bwipo actually played Graves and Jayce in Spring Season Week 3, two that he already played this year. However, across 2022 (including Lock In), Bwipo has 12 unique champion picks over 18 matches. This is the third-highest number of unique picks across all major region top laners. BDS’ Adam and G2’s Broken Blade are the only players with more–both 10 unique picks over 13 matches.

This metric is even more impressive when considering Bwipo’s dominance with Team Liquid. The team has an 83.3 percent win rate, and Bwipo averages +619 gold at 15 minutes. Broken Blade is close with +316 and a 61.5 percent winrate. Unfortunately, Adam’s team has a 23.1 percent win rate and he averages -116 gold. Bwipo’s flexibility and mastery truly has been reassuring for anyone who doubted his transition back to top lane.

Team Liquid are the Cleanest Team Globally

TL has the fewest deaths per game on average among major region teams. They have the most towers destroyed per game, while also giving the fewest towers among major region teams. According to Oracles Elixir, TL’s Early Game Rating is 70.4, the highest in the LCS.

They don’t really have the flashiest plays in the league, or the most unique compositions. However, they take control of the game and never really let up. TL will be a tough nut to crack for the other teams, and with their full intended roster now starting they only get scarier.
