TSM is a perennial North American powerhouse. In that respect, 2016 was a successful year, as TSM finished second in the Spring Split, and rode a wave of momentum to first place in the Summer Split. When TSM punched their tickets to the 2016 World Championship, they were seen as North America’s greatest hope for a victor. Unfortunately, the team stumbled and bowed out of the tournament in the group stage, ending their hopes of becoming a North American champion.
Despite losing Doublelift for the split, TSM is off to the races in 2017. After a rocky start, the team rallied around their star mid laner and a breakout performance from Hauntzer in the top lane. After besting Cloud9 in a nail biter of an NA LCS Finals, the squad heads to the 2017 Mid-Season Invitational looking for a shot at international redemption.
