EXPECTATIONS for Worlds / Wunder IN at Fnatic / Is Dplus BACK in form?
With the teams attending Worlds almost fully determined, the Power Spike boys discuss their expectations for this year's World Championship and the size of the gulf between the West and China/Korea. Oscarinin will have surgery on his hand, which means that Fnatic will field Wunder as a surprise substitute for the remainder of the LEC Season Finals, but is this fair to the other teams competing? Excel displayed strength in the Summer Split and faltered in their attempt at Worlds qualification, and Monte, Dom, and dgon are here to explain why they fell short.
Playoffs FRAUDS? C9, KT, or XL? / T1 still can't WIN / LCS viewership's new LOW
Frauds galore in the playoffs of LCK, LCS, and LEC, as Cloud9, KT, and XL all underperform expectations in their various brackets. Who shall become the lord of the frauds this summer? T1 is eaten alive by GenG for the third consecutive time in the LCK finals and Dom's schadenfreude is out of control. LCS Summer 2023 hits a new low for viewership for the league, dropping 40% year over year and 17% from the Spring Split. Is there a way to pull North American League of Legends out of the death spiral or will we continue to witness declining viewership for 2024 as well?
LEC season finals PREVIEW / The WORST LCS playoffs in years / T1 secures top 3
After a three week hiatus, LEC returns this week with the start of the season finals and significant expectations that G2 will end the bracket in first place. However, Dom, dgon, and Monte discuss which teams they high key, low key, and no key expect to find success in Europe and qualify for Worlds. Hanwha Life disappointed many by failing to win a game in their last two bo5s, especially resident Viper enthusiast IWillDominate. LCS teams have put up the least predictable and sloppiest playoffs in years, seemingly unable to track summoner cooldowns, predict enemy flanks, or close out games with massive gold leads. Finally, T1's resurgence in the LCK playoffs leaves fans with one question: can they take yet another title?
LPL teams to WORLDS: breaking down the four Chinese teams / NRG on a HEATER
LPL finals and regionals have all ended, sending JDG, BLG, LNG, and WBG to the League of Legends World Championship at the end of the year. The guys are here to discuss the Chinese results and analyze the strengths and weaknesses of the qualified teams. EG, and maybe even Cloud9, are starting to look a bit fraudulent, even as NRG pulls off back-to-back upsets to lock in a spot for Worlds themselves. LCK All-Pro voting remains underwhelming, with no players outside of KT or GenG making the top two teams. Monte and Dom question the rationale behind the decisions made by the players, coaches, and media who decide these awards and whether they can be trusted in the future.
Is the LEC format a SUCCESS? / Analyzing the LPL's TOP THREE teams / T1 on fire

The LCS playoffs have also started, but which teams deserve the most and least excitement?
