I still cant forget the gamÄ™ from season one championships where Riot Player vs Allstars and allstars team picked 5 supports and stomped Riot employees :D

I can't believe there is no Azubu Frost vs TPA game 1 of the world finals on the list.

[–]BestEve 4 points5 points ago

sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

That game is what crosses my mind first when i think of greatest game played until this date. Epic opening match of World Championship final. Arguably most entertaining, perhaps best game. To think of Frost improved so much since then, it scares me.

[–]Ch4zu 1 point2 points ago

Have you seen Azubu Frost vs Azubu Flame, game ... two I believe in the 2013 OGN Winter (Semi-)Finals ? It was a-ma-zing.

[–]davidefighter 0 points1 point ago

sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

that series was epic. game three was the epic comeback, game five was where "wtf 2 shens?" spawned

[–]DragoonTT 0 points1 point ago

sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

That series, man. Played at the very highest level, between two teams equally skilled who know each other inside and out. The games might not have the shock value of other games listed up here, but if we talk about skill alone, those probably should all be on the list.

[–]Willilenz123 -1 points0 points ago

sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

that game was the 4th game of the first bo5 in the semis of ogn winter season ( back then it was 2 best of 5s in the semis, now only 1)

[–]BestEve -1 points0 points ago

sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

I'm a more of a fan of equal game with crazy amount of kills than comeback games. It was a-ma-zing but i have my own preference :] Teams fighting all game 5v5 giving zero fucks is exciting for me. Plus it was World championship final, not some region locked tournament.

I will remember the clg.eu m5 game for the rest of my life. I didn't think what they did was possible and I still have trouble believing that it happened when I watch the replay and see the lead that m5 had

But to be honest when you are up so much and never dive against anivia wave clear 20k doesnt mean much

[–]arrowpinework 3 points4 points ago

sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

They just let anivia do what anivia does best... turtle

[–]damondono -1 points0 points ago

sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

ffs anivia was no 1 champ wonder, they also had trist, not nerfed soraka and alister, ultimate turtle

[–]capoeirista13 -3 points-2 points ago

sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

I think malz can clear just as well as Anivia, but he never gets mentioned

[–]AchigaAdmin 1 point2 points ago

sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

Anivia: Reliable CC, AOE, Wall Utility, Skillshot Stun a Burst through e. Malzahar: Close Range Single target, aoe based on hp, skillshot silence and ult that stuns himself..

[–]capoeirista13 -2 points-1 points ago

sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

He mentioned Anivia is the context of turtling, which is the context I was mentioning Malzahar in. He can clear huge waves incredible quickly.

Also Malz has just as much AOE as Anivia, and it's not just based on HP. Even when it is it's HUGE late-game.

[–]AchigaAdmin 0 points1 point ago

sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

Every Mage can waveclear well with some aoe skill. In turtling Anivia is superior, that was i was implying.

[–]capoeirista13 0 points1 point ago

sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

I mentioned malz because he can clear a massive wave in a second or two. Look at someone like Swain or Eve on the other hand, and they cannot insta-clear the same way.

[–]Big_Spence 0 points1 point ago

sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

Considering their comp though a dive was extremely risky, regardless of the gold. A largely aoe magic damage comp isn't great at quickly picking people off one by one, which is needed if you're going to fight under a turret. Additionally, diving an Alistar and an Anivia wall is itself questionable. Even something simple like the Raka silence makes any attempts at Lee diving in and kicking one out not possible. I think it was an innovative and perfectly executed turtle- I don't see any point in the replay that was an obvious "M5 should dive in now" moment that they missed. Though I think they did throw completely by letting Frogivia through champ select, no one doubts that.

[–]keslol 0 points1 point ago

sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

ok dive was maybe dangerous even with 29k, but at least they could have killed the towers one by one they had no problems tanking the turret for a few seconds so the adc could hit the tower

[–]Big_Spence 0 points1 point ago

sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

Ya I definitely agree with that. Especially with Blood Boil they should've gotten something done instead of standing mid over and over. "Oh maybe Anivia can't clear this next wave? ...Aw shucks."

[–]Bleakwing 8 points9 points ago

Well went ahead and watched the CLG EU and M5 match, that was one long ass boring match for the most part, yes a shocking ending but I've seen much better matches in random LCS matches recently.

[–]TheFatOneKnows 0 points1 point ago

sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

2001: A Space Odyssey can be somewhat boring to watch considering today's CGI and technology and pace of films but is still regarded as one of the best movies ever made. In season 2, matches used to a be a bit more slower paced, back then CLG.eu used to be known for their turtling to late game.

[–]joaomaria 0 points1 point ago

sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

this. and it almost felt like m5 fell asleep really. darien could have engaged or even hit the turret countless times if i remember well. he was so tanky and the team was so fed. I even think of it as an intentional throw by how stupidly wrong the match was played by m5's part.

[–]amousecaledmicky 1 point2 points ago

sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

Have to remember the time frame. Those concepts weren't around or all that practiced. You didn't go under and hit a tower unless there was creeps. The exchange of harass for tower damage just hadn't become concrete yet.

[–]joaomaria 0 points1 point ago

sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

i give props to clg for that comeback, i really do. but i think of the best game ever of a game where the 2 parts did exceptionally and not where just a team shined. well m5 was fed. but that was it.

everyone has the right for their own opinion though :P

Ya. I wasn't commenting on the entertainment level. Simply why the tactics wete used

[–]mukuste 0 points1 point ago

sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

You talk like that game happened in the stone age of competitive LoL. Pros did know how to push towers in mid-season 2.

[–]amousecaledmicky 0 points1 point ago

sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

I didn't say push towers. I said to tank the tower to deal damage. Accepting the harass from the other team, and the damage from the tower in trade-off of damage.

And no, I didn't say 'The Stone Age' I said there was a concept that wasn't yet figured out by the pro's. They don't perfectly utilize the jungle on minion spawn. They don't do the 9 minute back tower dive. They don't switch from the 1t 1m 2b 1j meta.

The game in season 2 wasn't as well developed and tuned as it is now.

Sorry, but people already did that in my leveling up matches in pre-Season 1. It's hardly an advanced concept.

I think this doesn't hold water because there are many other games from that period, from the same tournament even, where teams do exactly what you describe.

[–]mbr4life1 -2 points-1 points ago

No the damage from towers and armor were dif in season 2. Don't spout your idiocy.

[–]amousecaledmicky 0 points1 point ago

sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

You're right... they were even lower... meaning they should have done it even more, but still didn't understand the concept.

[–]DragoonTT -1 points0 points ago

It's only up there for shock value, fame and team names. From a skill or excitement standpoint, that game was actually pretty bad.

[–]damondono 0 points1 point ago

yup, clg eu bad teamfighting compensated by teamcomp and turtling, nothing to watch

[–]DragoonTT 0 points1 point ago

sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

Well, they had a winning strategy and played it pretty perfectly (after a certain point). Just didn't make for a great game except maybe the last three minutes.
