LEC Summer Split 2020 Week 4 Preview
The LEC Summer Split enters it's fourth week this weekend and we have a few thoughts on this one. Esports Vikings have compiled this ...
The League of Legends Championship Korea Spring Split ended in a grand fashion with the Playoffs. We expected some close series and some amazing games being played from each of the teams in the bracket but after the Quarterfinals we saw something entirely different. If you are new to the LCK make sure to check out our initial Power Rankings here otherwise, let's get into the Playoffs.
Kt Rolster arguably had a miracle run to make it this far after an abysmal first Round Robin and realistically could have made it to the Quarterfinals on a different day. DAMWON, led by Nuguri, managed to finish out the series in game three to move on however and looked strong heading into their underdog matchup against DragonX. Nuguri and co maintain their position as one of the best teams in Korea but even kt Rolster has begun to make an argument for their return and are a team to watch out for come Summer.
It was another close series with some thrilling team fights, sure there was the classic amount of LCK “Ping Pong” but this series had a lot more spice than probably all of the regular season matches combined. As the first Best of 5 of the Split, and the only one to go all 5 games we saw a lot of team fights and outplays. If you wanted an action packed series out of Korea then this is the one to watch for sure. DAMWON’s season ends here and while they have fallen a bit from last year they are still contenders for the top 3 in the region.
Faker assumed his role of the best player to play competitive League of Legends by completely stuffing DragonX in this series. The whole of T1 was on another level with very minimal mistakes but Faker really shined with his Bot Lane following up. DragonX were strong contenders for the finals and some would have said that T1 got away with murder this series, if it weren’t for the Finals.
In what most consider a huge upset, Gen. G shows weakness not shown before this series. T1 made quick work of the number 1 seeds from the regular split and while Gen. G did their best all Split long, they didn’t seem to be at their keyboards in the most important match of their Spring season. T1 had a mostly unexpected run with this victory but they were never counted out of the trophy. Well done T1 and I’m excited to see them play in Summer.
Coach Kim hasn’t made a star Top Laner out of Roach or Canna yet, but by Worlds time Canna could definitely approach the levels of peak Duke or TheShy of 2018. Faker manages yet another LCK success with a different roster and the rebranded SKT team starts off the second half of their dynasty strong.
