The 2023 LCS Spring Split day two looked to continue the excitement and level of play that was shown on the first day but did every team step up to the plate, or are they still asleep at the wheel? How many teams are still going to have problems with communication, and who has hit the ground running?
Will Team Liquid Honda rebound against TSM after their poor showing against FlyQuest, or will they fall to the team made up of players that shouldn’t be able to match them head-on? Can 100 Thieves pick a normal support and show what they are made of against an inferior team on paper, or will they crash and burn against Immortals Progressive?
It is only the second day of the 2023 LCS Spring Split, so overreactions are going to be the main reactions to these games, but it’s still important for teams to start winning, start gaining momentum, and moving their way up the standings.

Welcome to the upset city
During the 2023 LCS Spring Split day two, there were two major upsets on the day. The first one was Counter Logic Gaming taking a game off of Evil Geniuses, and the second being TSM winning against Team Liquid Honda.
In the first game of the day, Evil Geniuses took on the North American roster of Counter Logic Gaming. Coming off of both teams winning yesterday, it set the stage for what should have been an exciting game, and it paid off. Despite falling behind early, CLG’s synergy from last year kept them calm and collected, bringing them back into the game despite them being down over two thousand gold.
The other upset of the day was TSM winning against Team Liquid Honda. The story of their victory is the same as the story from the previous game. TSM was able to play calmly and collected despite falling behind early. Despite being ranked in the bottom half of the league, if not the last-place team, they are punching way above their weight class right now; it only depends on how long it can last.

With the 2023 LCS Spring Split coming to a close, the first week of the LCS competitive season has come to a close. Of course, it’s the first couple of times that teams are playing on stage with their starting rosters, but my initial reactions to what we’ve seen on stage are that Counter Logic Gaming and TSM are heavily underrated, Team Liquid Honda needs to work on team synergy, and Cloud9 hasn’t missed a beat despite replacing their midlaner.
