IC Esports Keeps Rolling with Win over Missouri Valley

Staff Contributor

Published

on

The Illinois College esports team improved to 4-1 in the Riot League of Legends Tournament after a 2-0 victory over Missouri Valley College on Saturday.

Game 1 started off slow for IC as Missouri Valley was able to pick up  an early gold lead, but that didn’t last for very long. Once laning phase ended, IC was able to pick up two favorable team fights, one of which ended in a clean 5-for-0 ace and baron. After baron was taken, IC was able to push to take structures in their base and end the game.

Game 1 ended in 26:44 with a final kill score of 15-7 in favor of IC. Stat leaders of game 1 go to Dalton “Prankuru” Swaino with a KDA of 8/0/7 and 37% of the team’s damage, followed by Adam “IC Chill” Lee with a KDA of 2/4/8 and 30% of the team’s damage.

Game 2 was much closer and went back and forth for most of the game. Missouri Valley focused heavily on shutting down the top half of the map, which enabled IC’s bottom lane to win 2v2 matchups and let the jungler free farm on the champion Karthus, which made teamfighting very easy once laning phase ended.

Game 2 ended at 35:58 with a final kill score of 21-15 in favor of IC. Stat leaders for game 2 go to Tony “King Me” Bautista-Foti with a KDA of 9/2/6 and 28% of the team’s damage, followed by Dylan “IC Storm” Cawthon with a KDA of 3/5/10 and 24% of the team’s damage.

This result improves IC’s record to 4-1 in Riot’s College League of Legends tournament. With one more win, IC will clinch a playoff berth in the North Conference. The next match is scheduled for March 2 at 3 p.m. with the opponent to still be decided.

Cincinnati Prevails over IC Esports in Clash of Unbeatens

Week 3 of Collegiate League of Legends was played against the University of Cincinnati on Friday night, with both teams coming into the week with a record of 2-0.

Game 1 was a very slow-paced game in the early game, with Illinois College playing towards the top side of the map and Cincinnati playing towards their bot side of the map. This showed by substantial farm leads in those lanes for the respective teams. The first major clash came at the 18 minute mark, where Cincinnati took a map bonus and four kills.

IC was able to stay in the game by stealing another map bonus at the 27 minute mark, but the Cincinnati long-game strategy paid off, and IC was constantly on the back foot. Game 1 ended at 37 minutes with a final score of 19-5 in favor of Cincinnati. Stat leaders for IC were Dalton “Prankuru” Swaino with a KDA of 3/3/0 and 34% of the team’s damage, followed by Adam “IC Chill” Lee with a KDA of 0/3/2 and 29% of the team’s damage.

Game 2’s early game was very similar to game 1 as IC’s top lane and Cincinnati’s bot lane both received jungle attention and this showed with substantial farm leads for both teams. There was not much action for the majority of the game, but Cincinnati was able to keep control with a strong bot lane and great macro decisions by taking dragons on spawn.

Cincinnati was able to take baron at 22 minutes and push to end shortly after. Game 2 ended at 25:30 with a final kill score of 11-4 in favor of Cincinnati. Stat leaders for IC were Dalton “Prankuru” Swaino with a KDA of 2/1/0 and 38% of the team’s damage followed by Adam “IC Chill” Lee with a KDA of 2/3/0 and 25% of the team’s damage.

This result pushes IC to 2-1 in Riot’s College League of Legends tournament.  The next match is scheduled for February 16th at 3 p.m. with the opponent to still be determined.

IC Esports Improves to 2-0 with Win over Northern Illinois

Week 2 of Collegiate League of Legends was played against Northern Illinois University, as both teams came into week to with a record of 1-0.

Game 1 was a very macro-oriented game with not much action throughout. NIU took a slight advantage near the nine minute mark, but IC stopped them from capitalizing on it. Dalton “Prakuru” Swaino helped tie up the NIU team, and prevent them from executing their game plan.

Around 28 minutes was when IC was finally able to get baron and start to take structures in NIU’s base.  Shortly after, IC was able to end the game at 31:27 with a final score of 10-3.

Game 2 was a jungle-dominated game in favor of IC and Dylan “IC Storm” Cawthon. NIU attempted long-game strategy, but IC effectively countered this with early pressure, scoring four points in the first ten minutes. This early pressure turned into a strong mid game for IC and their eventual victory 20-6 in 26:32.

Stat leaders of game 2 go to Dylan “IC Storm” Cawthon with a KDA of 11/1/2 and 32% of the team’s overall damage, followed by Dalton “Prankuru” Swaino with a KDA of 2/2/4 and dealing 28% of the team’s overall damage.

This result pushes IC to 2-0 in Riot’s College League of Legends tournament. The next match is scheduled for February 9 at 3 p.m. with the opponent to still be decided.
