Kegagalan Team SoloMid membuat para fans-nya kecewa, karena untuk ketiga kalinya tim favorit mereka tidak bisa lolos dari babak grup World Championship 2017. Ada yang kecewa, ada yang marah, dan ada juga yang mendapatkan ide kreatif.

Baru-baru ini di Reddit, seorang fans menciptakan sebuah puisi untuk TSM. Puisi yang dibuat untuk mengenang kegagalan TSM tahun ini diberi judul “A Tale of Heartbreak”.

“A Tale of Heartbreak”

There once was a team that came from NA

Who got used to having all things go their way

They tore through their land like a battering ram

This is the tale of our poor TSM


Their leader was Bjergsen, who came from afar

In Mid lane he shone like the evening star

To Worlds Bjergsen went, with hopes in his eyes

To reach Semifinals, for real this year guys!


The groups they were drawn, and there they could see

Our heroes were drawn to the Group they called D

“No high-fives for Peter,” we heard Hauntzer scoff

The sandbagging at MSI had paid off


The first week began, the first game was won

Against the poor Flash Wolves who came from Taiwan

China was next, and they followed suit

Two wins on the board and life’s looking good


But alas, contrary to their desire

The tragedy struck like a microwave fire

Misfits cut through them like a hot knife through butter

“Fucking Wildturtle”, you heard the fans mutter


The team wasn’t shook, we were lead to believe

We would be proud of what they would achieve

Surely their coaching staff knew what to do

Then came the curse of the dreaded Week Two


Immortals fell first, and people would meme

About the fake curse and this terrible team

“You’re next, TSM!” the people would joke

Surely there’s no way that they’re gonna choke


But WE had a different plan

Silencing every TSM fan

The game soon was lost and the fans scratched their head

“I thought we were gucci, what the fuck was that?”


Our heroes were third now, tied two and two

With Misfits up next angst started to brew

“What if they lose, are TSM out?”

The ’totally calm’ Redditors cried aloud


The fifth game began, with a Yasuo pick

Our heroes did not want to fall for that schtick

They all played their hearts out, and with great success

Misfits were defeated and looked like a mess


The game versus Flash Wolves could be the one

Win and with some luck you’re leaving Wuhan

But then the Renekton threw them for a loop

The situation looked dire for our dashing group


Now Misfits and Team WE had their fight

Misfits then stumbled and out went the light

“NO!” screamed their fans, feeling the shame

One final match, who’d take the fame?


The rematch it came, NA Jayce was picked

After the First Blood the Twitch chat screamed “RIGGED”

Things just went downwards in this final act

And TSM left with their tears fully stacked


Back home our boys went, like brave army troops

Here’s to another year stuck in Groups!

But TSM had bad luck in the draw, won’t you say?

They drew EU, Misfits got NA. 


Puisi ini menceritakan perjalanan TSM dari awal musim sampai Worlds 2017. Di liga NA LCS, TSM berhasil mendominasi. TSM dipimpin oleh seorang Midlaner berbakat bernama Bjergsen yang bersinar dan diyakini oleh fans-nya bisa membawa TSM maju ke Semifinal Worlds tahun ini.

Minggu pertama berhasil dilalui TSM dengan baik dengan mengalahkan perwakilan LMS Flash Wolves dan LPL World Elite. Satu-satunya kekalahan yang diterima adalah saat melawan perwakilan EU LCS Misfits. Para fans pun yakin kalau TSM bisa lolos untuk tahun ini. Sampai akhirnya datanglah kutukan “NA 2nd Week” yang cukup ditakuti.

Tim pertama yang terkena kutukan ini adalah Immortals. Berhasil meraih hasil bagus pada minggu pertama namun berakhir tereliminasi pada minggu kedua. Melihat kegagalan Immortals, orang-orang langsung menunjuk “TSM adalah berikutnya!”.

Dan kutukan itu terjadi. WE berhasil menaklukkan TSM, membuat fans TSM terdiam. TSM terpojok dan Misfits adalah lawan selanjutnya. Muncul kekhawatiran kalau TSM bakal tereliminasi. Namun setelah melihat pick Yasuo, TSM berhasil keluar sebagai pemenang.

Cukup menang satu game lagi untuk maju ke perempatfinal, sayangnya Renekton menjadi biang kekalahan TSM saat melawan FW. Posisi TSM kembali terpojok.

WE dan Misfits bertanding dan Misfits kalah. Para fans pun berteriak “NO!”. Pertandingan pun harus dilanjutkan lewat Tiebreaker. Laga ini justru berbuah bencana saat Jayce muncul di draft TSM. Twitch Chat pun dipenuhi dengan komentar “RIGGED”. Sekali lagi, TSM harus pulang lebih awal meskipun mendapatkan grup yang lebih mudah ketimbang tahun lalu.

Ketimbang marah-marah di akun media sosial TSM, fans ini justru membuatkan TSM sebuah puisi. Sebuah langkah yang unik!
