Before the start of the 2023 LCS Summer Split, FlyQuest's League of Legends lineup might have appeared to be a fighter aircraft, but after two straight defeats, this behemoth is more resembling a kite barely holding things together in a storm. Early in the season, FlyQuest is 0-2 after losing their second game of the Summer Split to TSM. Since their starting mid laners haven't yet been allowed to join the team owing to visa complications, the two teams FlyQuest has played so far—100 Thieves and TSM—are likewise playing with substitute mid laners.
As a consequence, FlyQuest was expected to do well in their first few games, especially after acquiring superstar support Vulcan to team up with Prince, one of the league's top AD carriers. TSM triumphed for the first time this summer by displaying excellent poise and confidence in the face of a strong opponent.
