LEC 2020 Spring Week 7 Review

LEC Spring 2020 Week 7 Reivew

The LEC is nearing the end of the regular season and this weekend saw some crucial matches. G2 Esports faced both of their strongest challengers and emerged victorious. In addition, knocked out teams were basically sealed when Excel Esports lost to Misfits Gaming and ended up in a situation where it has to beat at least one of the top three. Schalke, SK Gaming and Team Vitality are certainly out of the playoffs. However, the last two weeks will have a lot of stakes, as the battle for a coveted top-4 finish gets really hot. Ranked 2-5. Origen, Fnatic, Rogue and Misfits Gaming are within one win of each other and teams on either side of the four are on point. More information about the league and its teams can be found on the tournament page.

The success of this week was definitely G2 Esports, which after a difficult week returned to victory over Origen and Fnatic. These were the two biggest threats to the G2 regular season victory, and with these victories, in principle, it secured the regular season victory. Or at least it can only blame itself if it fails here. Another success was definitely Fnatic. Although Fnatic lost to G2, the way the defeat came was promising for the playoffs. More about this match in the “Match of the Week” section.

One  loser was Excel Esports, who absolutely needed 2-0 weeks to keep the hopes of playoffs alive. Their loss to Misfits Gaming was almost a fatal blow to the playoffs and the team did not appear to have a realistic chance of overthrowing a fairly equal opponent. Excel did win the over Team Vitality on Saturday, but that's a small consolation.

Match of the week

Fnatic 0-1 G2 Esports

After Friday's wins, the highest stakes of the week were won, as the winner would take the lead after both teams had more matches against weaker opponents. This week started off with an interesting starting point, as G2 has a couple of very eventful and unsuccessful weekends, while Fnatic has been in high spirits and raised itself back to the top.

The match started under Fnatic's control and for a long time it seemed that G2 was not equipped to respond to theml. The game plan progressed perfectly for Fnatic until the team made a monumental mistake at Baron, and a Smite from Selfmade left Baron at 13hp to give G2 a free Baron and thus, the ability to collect free gold in the form of turrets. The gold brought G2 back into the game and when the momentum turned, Fnatic panicked and sank the entire team leading the game so deep into the swamp that the G2 level team would no longer be able to get up to its opponent. Without Fnatic's useless gambling, G2 should never have gotten back into the game.

The match promises good in the playoffs as it shows that Fnatic can challenge G2. In Friday's match, Origen was completely unarmed against G2, so it is very refreshing that Fnatic has found the momentum and tactics to challenge G2. I can hardly wait for the best of the five playoff series between the two teams!

Tweet of the week

This week the award goes to Origen's top laner Alphari. Summaries and previews on this site have criticized Origen's slow way of playing matches and the team's gaming community has also begun to approach its gameplay with humor, as evidenced by a tweet from Alphari.
