It’s been an up and down season for TSM so far. But after a convincing victory over Evil Geniuses in week three of the 2020 LCS Summer Split today, support Vincent “Biofrost” Wang thinks that the future is looking good for his team.
“We knew that if we just farmed it out, we would eventually win,” Biofrost said about their match against EG. “Of course, I think they made a lot of mistakes, so we actually ended up making a lot of plays before we even outscaled them. And if they go behind, they just don’t really have any options because of their champions.”

During their match against EG, TSM seemed to constantly keep the gas pedal down, whether it was Bjergsen diving in with LeBlanc or Mingyi “Spica” Lu making a big play on Kindred. Biofrost also helped Doublelift pop off on Aphelios, collecting 11 assists alongside his star AD carry’s six kills.
The talented support also talked about the current state of the team after playing together on stage for almost three weeks, saying that although they needed some time to work on their issues as a squad, they are now optimistic about their chances.
“After you go through a lot of repetitions, you get a better sense of what people should be talking about, what people should look for, what each player’s tendencies are, and what we should be covering each other for,” Biofrost said.
TSM have needed time to adjust after the addition of Doublelift to the roster this past offseason. His voice has always been a big factor in the team’s communication. With a huge win against one of the better teams in the league, it’s clear that when the ball is rolling for this star-studded lineup, they cannot be stopped.
TSM went through a lot of drama in the offseason, leaking Dardoch’s replacement.
While Dardoch didn’t have the greatest split, he was a reliable jungle so it’s surprising that TSM decided to replace him just after one split. It’s surprising TSM keeps replacing their members after just one split. With this progress it’s unlikely we will get to see TSM participate at international tournaments since other teams keep their members and develop them instead of throwing them out after one split.
So far, Spica has been looking quite great and is a decent replacement for Dardoch. While the team had some flukes in their games, the overall synergy is there.
