TSM Academy faces off against OpTic Gaming Academy in this week’s matchup of the 2019 North American Spring Season.

TSM Academy sits tied for 2nd place with a 4-2 record.  TSM Academy started off the 2019 Spring season very strong but is coming off of a loss.  In TSM’s last game against Golden Guardians Academy, TSM was able to get the first blood but that was the highlight of the game for TSM.  After that first blood Golden Guardians Academy took control of the game.  TSM lost the tower count 10-3 and attempted to make the game more even with ten total kills but were not able to overcome the 6k gold lead that Golden Guardians had.  This was Golden Guardians first win and I believe that is something that TSM is not happy about giving them.  I am looking for TSM to be hungry in this next matchup against OpTic Gaming Academy try to get back on track.

OpTic Gaming Academy sits tied for seventh place with a 2-4 record.  OpTic Gaming Academy’s two wins are over teams that are sitting right beneath them in the standings having proven that maybe they aren’t ready to compete against the better teams just yet.  OpTic Academy is coming off a loss against FlyQuest Academy. In that matchup OpTic took the first kill in the top lane and continued that dominance in the top lane as they were the first to five kills with three of those five kills coming from the top lane.  Things started to go south after that for OpTic as they lost a team fight while trying to capture Baron but were able to get the first tower for bonus gold.  OpTic then got aced in a team fight at the 18-minute mark and that allowed FlyQuest to ultimately get up 4k in gold and not look back.  FlyQuest was able to take the game in 28 minutes with twenty kills and the 13k gold lead.  In the end OpTic Gaming Academy could not keep up in the end as they have proven that in this spring season.

In this matchup I am looking for TSM Academy to have some anger coming off that loss and take it out on the OpTic Gaming academy. I am looking for TSM to play smart and end this game early.
