LEC 2020 Spring Split Week 2 Review

LEC Spring 2020 Week 2 Review

The League of Legends European ChampionshipJust finished up week 2. To learn More about the league and its teams make sure to check out our event page. G2 Esports remains the only undefeated team in the league while Vitality and Schalke 04 find themselves without a win. G2 remain looking dominant while the rest of the favorites find themselves a little lackluster.

The worst looking team so far this season is Schalke 04. FORG1VEN has not been able to keep up with the pace of the game after a three-year break and the whole team is in complete disarray. Schalke's played some of the harder teams on their schedule already but if they are unable to pick up wins against some of the more favored teams we can’t really call them a contender for the playoffs can we? 

The best looking teams in the second week were G2 Esports and Fnatic, both of whom had taken advantage of the breaks and corrected the problems seen in week one. Before this week, it was said that G2's only challenge was Origen, maybe now it should be said that Fnatic is the only one who can stop G2 as Origen was decimated by the 4-0 squad.

Match(es) of the Week

Origen vs Rogue

This was by far the best match of the week as Origen played particularly well in beating Rogue . Origen's game plan revolved around getting the lead and then holding on to it and they would slowly increase it with clean gameplay, while depriving Rogue an opportunity comeback opportunity. Xerxe was a monster the whole game, getting off three perfect ganks before 10 minutes, one in each Lane. Alphari also succeeded in demonstrating the weaknesses of Sett, seen for the first time in Europe on Summoner's Rift. As a result, Origen got a few thousand gold and ran away with it. After an explosive start, the game slowed down significantly and saw no more kills for more than ten minutes. The match went on for 35 minutes before Origen' ended with a Baron and a good enough fight to close out the match.

G2 Esports vs Origen

Origen came into this match on a high after their bout with Rogue. G2 was also coming off of a clean game and unfortunately for Origen it seems G2 is just a little more clean. Origen's go to strategy during the season so far has been to take the lead right at the start of the game and then try to stop the opponent from catching up with smarter gameplay. In this match, there was no leadfor Origen. G2 Esports took over the match right from the start and never gave Origen a real chance to challenge them. Before the start of the season, I was thinking about Destiny's big jump from Oceania to the LEC, and last week it looked like Destiny could play really well in Europe, but when a Worlds finalist fought back, he crumpled under the pressure.. I'm not saying Destiny is the sole reason for the loss to G2 this game as Nukeduck was completely rolled in Mid and Wunder's second game on the Soraka top was something Alphari had no answer for. All in all a really strong performance from G2 Esports and although the first week showed some worrying habits for the team, as the opponents get harder the mistakes are eliminated. It really seems like G2 is set up for another Championship this split.

Tweet of the week

In last week's summary, we praised Rogue's twitter game, but overall, the Social Media stat has evolved for almost all LEC teams. Schalke's game shows they aren’t all there yet, but their twitter game is just fine.
