PAX 2013 Spring Promotional Qualifier Preview

As a part of the League of Legends competition at PAX, four of the top teams on the Challenger circuit will compete for a spot in the upcoming Season 4 LCS Spring Promotion Tournament. The teams range from the acclaimed and experienced to the noteworthy and unfamiliar. The tournament format is an intense Best of 3 single elimination that will require the utmost concentration from all competitors.



compLexity Gaming

Despite being relegated from the LCS, compLexity are arguably the most recognizable and successful team on the Challenger circuit. On a tear lately, compLexity has been dominant in the MOBAFire Challenger Series. Winning eleven matches in a row they sit atop the standings at 11-1. Along with their performance in the MCS, compLexity is undefeated in the NESL Pro Series Season 7. With a roster full of familiar names and the addition of MegaZero on June 18 they have bared their teeth to the competition. Strong synergy as well as consistent success with superior team compositions has molded compLexity into a remarkable group.

Roster
MegaZero– Top
Lautemortis – Jungle
PR0LLY– Mid
Chuuper - AD Carry
MeyeA – Support



To Be Determined

By far the strongest team at the beginning of the summer Challenger split, To Be Determined (formerly FXOpen) has already qualified for the Season 4 LCS Spring Promotion Tournament. To Be Determined sits tied for second place in the MOBAfire Challenger Series, with a record of 10-2. To Be Determined was the last team to lose in the MCS, starting off with an impressive 8 consecutive wins. Much of TBD's roster has experience in high level League of Legends competition, in particular former Curse member Westrice. TBD typically maintains a strong laning phase that allow them to ease into the mid and late game.

Roster
Westrice – Top
heavenTime – Jungle
Arthelon – Mid
ROBERTxLEE – AD Carry
NydusHerMain – Support



New World Eclipse

New World Eclipse, a relatively new team to the Challenger scene, is risen from the ashes of Azure Cats. Despite significant roster changes, NWE has maintained consistent success in the MOBAfire Challenger Series, their first significant competitive experience. NWE holds an 8-4 record in the MCS that includes a win over To Be Determined. The successful emergence of top-laner Quas and continued triumph of veteran player Shao suggest that NWE has the potential to compete with the top-tier teams on the Challenger Circuit.

Roster
Quas – Top
npromsiri – Jungle
Shao – Mid
Meruem – AD Carry
miwi – Support



COGnitive Gaming

Recently acquired COGnitive Gaming (previously Wazabi Gaming) has been one of the surprise teams in the MOBAfire Challenger Series, achieving a record of 7-5 with victories over both New World Eclipse and compLexity Academy. COG's lineup contains some familiar faces, including Valkrin (formerly Falafel Gaming), nothinghere (formerly Azure Gaming, and current Velocity sub), and team captain Zamphira (Team Dignitas sub). With the recent announcement of a gaming house it seems the sky is the limit, and being able to secure a LCS Promotion spot would be a fantastic kick-start to sustained success.

Roster
iDream – Top
Captain Ziploc – Jungle
Zamphira – Mid
nothinghere – AD Carry

So then please, tell us what COGnitive has done to garner attention, besides being a combined 0-4 against TBD in the past 3 weeks (ggLA Arena's 2 & 3), and going 0-3 in the last 2 weeks of that MOBAFire Challenger league they were in (and, it should be repeated.. out of the 4 teams in this Promotional Qualifier, COG had the WORST record in that Challenger league)?

So yea, THAT'S pretty much why people were "ignoring" cognitive, because they just aren't as good as complexity (or TBD, for that matter). If knowing coL/TBD are better than cog is "Silver solo game", then you stay classy in Bronze.

Ignoring Cognitive was probably not the intention. However, they are 1-2 against the other teams, with only that one win over NWE. They shouldn't be counted out, but it certainly doesn't look like it'll be easy for them. And in the future, let's not resort to name calling because someone thinks other teams have a good chance.

In my opinion, TBD has a high chance of winnning because of their strong current performance

Complexity looks like the best team right now, with their only MCS loss being in their very first game (against TBD, granted). Still, MegaZero and Pr0lly are playing at the top of their game lately, and even ROBERTxLEE and the rest of TBD will need to be playing at their very best to top Complexity, which I'm not convinced they're at. TBD's recent losses suggest Complexity to be the more dangerous team right now.
