Would you remind your team of your priorities and win conditions, point out enemy positioning or key cooldowns, or make a plan for an upcoming macro move or team fight?

Analyst Challenge – Win Conditions, September 14

September 14, 2019 Challenge

Saturday’s analyst challenge asked you to look at a draft from one of the weekend’s LEC games and describe the win conditions for one of the two teams.
