The League Championship Series was on break this past week as teams flew over for Katowice for the Intel Extreme Masters tournament. Fan-favorite teams were voted in from Europe, Korea, China and North America, and we got to watch SK Telecom T1, Team SoloMid, Origen, Counter Logic Gaming, Fnatic, ESC Ever, Royal Never Give Up and Qiao Gu duke it out.

The games aired at ridiculous times for us, since the games took place in Poland, and I know you guys didn’t wake up at 6 a.m. for a League of Legends match. Lucky for you, I have the breakdown (as usual.)

Doublelift Pentakill

Honestly, when doesn’t Doublelift get a pentakill? Is this even worth mentioning anymore? He nabbed an Ezreal pentakill against Korean-representative ESC Ever, though ESC managed to pull through and beat TSM in the end. Awkward.

SKT T1 Bengi subbed out

The world-renown jungler for SKT sat out for the tourney and Blank was put in instead. He had a massively impressive showing, and though many argue that SKT weren’t playing their best, he managed impressive feats, like a Baron steal against Qiao Gu.

SKT T1 takes home the trophy…

…again. Honestly, what tourney have they not won lately? (Insert joke about Season 4 World Championship here.) SKT came in, kicked everyone’s asses, and walked out with the $50,000 first-place prize.

Though this was a pretty typical recap, LCS has started back up again.

Oh, just once in my life, I would like to report on a North American team winning an international tournament…Maybe someday. (Dreamy sigh.)
