- 5Empire Wombo Combo
Welcome to the first part of our Worlds Coverage: the nostalgic part! Here, we're going to present what we think are the five top memorable moments from Season 2. So, let's get cracking shall we?
It is hard to believe that Moscow Five were once a team no one had heard of before. But video is the first time many of us first met the five players who would soon take over the League of Legends scene. And thus would rise The European Empire.
- 4Uszat and League of Legends
One of the most memorable moments in League of Legends in Season 2 comes not from the Fields of Justice and Summoner's Rift, but from the floors of Intel Extreme Masters New York. A normal interview slowly goes awry ad poor Scarra is subjected to
CarmacUszat's questioning and spawns a meme.
(P.S. We love you Scarra)
- 3CC is nothing to CaptJack
Korean commentators and big plays. This is what ESPORTS(tm) is about.
- 2Misaya's Twisted Bait
When you think of "aggressive Twisted Fates", most people generally think of Reginald. They cite his aggressive use of Destiny/Gate (R) and how he 'ports into the other team as a method of initiation. But Reginald has nothing on Misaya's Twisted Fate. There's a really good reason many teams have his TF on permaban status, like HotShot Nidalee once was.
Not only does Misaya incredibly aggressively initiate in the clip above and bait the other team into thinking they can win a fight they actually have no chance of winning, he makes it out taking barely any damage. And did you notice him completely dodging all the CC and Ultimates that were thrown at him? Sheesh.
- 1Dreamhack 2012 - CLG.eu v Moscow Five
Your back is against the wall. You're facing Moscow Five, the most dominant team that League of Legends has seen. You've been down 30k gold but somehow you've closed the gap to a "mere" 20k gold difference. If history is any precedent, you have absolutely no chance of winning this game. The statistics say you can't beat Moscow Five. The books say that coming back from such a deficit is unheard of. But not for CLG.eu.
No further description is necessary. This video speaks for itself.
