Unicorns Make a Comeback!
After two losses on Day 1, Unicorns made a statement in their games today. They were not to be taken lightly, and they fell to some comfort picks and their favorite team fighting champions.
It looks like it might be time to start banning the Lee Sin away from Phoenix1's
G2 Esports is still scrambling to figure out the current meta. They allowed G2 many of Phoenix1's comfort picks, such as the Thresh and Corki. It showcased in their game when they were steamrolled by Phoenix1 in almost every lane.

UoL may not have had control of the early and mid game, when the team fights rolled around, they tore TSM apart with their comfort picks from the 2017 Spring Split and showcased that they knew how to play with the other LCS teams.
There was little to be done against UoL's team fight when their positioning was on point against TSM's. However, a few mistakes were made as well: Dennis "Svenskeren" Johnsen kicked the Vladimir into his team;
