FlyQuest Bounces Back in a Big Way in Week 3

FlyQuest started out strong this season, however, have been a trainwreck this split. Could their strong Week 3 performance be what they needed to salvage their split?

FlyQuest has had one of the most turbulent 2023 competitive seasons of any professional League of Legends team, regardless of region. They got off to a fast start right off the bat, taking the first seed in the Spring Split Playoffs after a dominant 14-4 regular season.

However, they were unable to find success in playoffs, ultimately ending the split in 3rd place and missing out on the opportunity to represent North America at the Mid Season Invitational.

Entering the Summer Split, many still had high expectations for the FlyQuest squad. Unfortunately, FlyQuest’s Summer Split has gotten off to a bumpy start, to say the least. In the first two weeks of the Summer Split FlyQuest lost six straight games, more than they lost in the split prior.

Despite the lackluster start, FlyQuest was able to turn things around in Week 3, securing their first three wins of the season and starting a winning streak they hope to continue in the following weeks.

Current LCS Standings

  • Evil Geniuses LG (7-2)
  • Cloud9 (7-2)
  • Golden Guardians (6-3)
  • Dignitas (5-4)
  • Team Liquid Honda (5-4)
  • 100 Thieves (4-5)
  • NRG (3-6)
  • TSM (3-6)
  • FlyQuest (3-6)
  • Immortals Progressive (2-7)

Tie for 1st

Evil Geniuses LG and Cloud9 are both having fantastic starts to their seasons. Both find themselves in a tie with each other for first place after going 7-2 in the first three weeks. The two teams met on the last day of Week 3 in what was a 22-minute stomp for Cloud9 to secure the tiebreaker in the event that these two fail to break the tie in the remaining three weeks.

So far, Cloud9 has had a really impressive split taking down some of the top team teams in the league, like Golden Guardians and Dignitas. Their Week 2 loss to NRG is a tad bit concerning as NRG is nowhere near being a top team in North America.

They lost to Team Liquid Honda in Week 3, but despite that, they shook it off and returned the next day to take down Evil Geniuses. This week Golden Guardians and Dignitas will have their shot at revenge against a Cloud9 team that could benefit from another dominant performance.

No one expects Evil Genuises LG to have the split that they are currently having after the last split in which they finished the regular season with a 10-8 record going into the playoffs as the 5th seed.

They did slightly better than expected in playoffs ending the season in 4th. So far this season, they’re looking like a real contender, with their only losses coming to some of the best teams in the league in Cloud9 and Dignitas.

If they continue to dominate, they’ll have a solid shot at representing North America at the League of Legends World Championships.
