TSM Dyrus: Playoff Performer

Last weekend, Team SoloMid earned a Quarterfinals victory over Gravity, riding on the shoulders of their much-criticized Top laner, Dyrus. TSM built multiple team compositions around Dyrus’s unexpected Olaf pick, surprising many with their shift in strategy.

Dyrus played Olaf three times and Gnar once and delivered big time on those selections, earning a 4.0 KDA and averaging 72% kill participation, 23% damage share, and only 18% of his team’s deaths. It was an MVP-worthy performance, and gave the veteran plenty of cause to break from his often stoic demeanor and share a few smiles afterwards.

But while the Dyrus-centered strategy was a big change from TSM’s recent style of play, Dyrus’s performance should not have been at all surprising: if the Spring split taught us anything, it’s that Dyrus knows how to show up in the postseason.
