LEC 2020 Spring Week 8 Review

LEC Spring 2020 Week 8 Review

The final weekend of the second half of the LEC regular season strengthened the playoff teams and their position in the table, but all of the teams are still facing two matches. The playoff teamsare almost locked in but there are a few upsets that could happen, and with the new playoff format, the top four teams go at the top of the double-elimination chart and the remaining two teams start at the bottom of the chart. The battle for the top four is still fierce between MAD Lions, Misfits Gaming and Rogue. For more information about the league and its teams, visit the Tournament page.

The absolute best story of the week was Schalke 04, who won over both Misfits Gaming and Team Vitality. Their playoff goals have been dead for some time, but performances like this promise a good summer for the team. Another success story was Fnatic, whose schedule this week was more difficult than the other top teams. However, Fnatic did a good job of routing both the final playoff spot and the struggle with Excel and Rogue, who sought Fnatic's place in the standings.

It didn't take long to think about the week's biggest failure. Misfits Gaming, which had a complete top-4 rank in their hands, lost to both Schalke and MAD Lions, and are now on the way to a fourth place battle instead of one win ahead. The most worrying thing was that the team was not even close to winning in either match.

Match of the week

MAD Lions 1-0 Misfits Gaming

The teams went to a tiebreaker and the winner was given an advantage over the fourth place battle. MAD Lions were behind SK Gaming in their first online match, while Misfits Gaming came in after a humiliating defeat to Schalke. In anticipation, we predicted this Misfits feast, largely because Febiven has been the driving force, while Humanoid has at times been a real risk to his team. For the full advance, see Week 8 Advance. https://www.esportsvikings.com/fi/lol/uutiset/lol-lec-kevat-2020-viikon-8-ennakko

The MAD Lions were a more active player right from the start of the match, though its three-player dive top Lane failed catastrophically and gave Misfits a small lead. The match then remained steady until Baron was born, when the MAD Lions found the perfect teamfight and killed three Misfits players. Of course, this knew the Baron buff for the MAD Lions, and that was where complete map control began.

During the latter half of the match, Misfits lost the battle one after the other, opening up the map and the objective and more to the MAD Lions who took advantage of it and marched irresistibly to victory. After one completely unsuccessful battle, the Misfits were unable to respond at all to the MAD Lions' attack, and eventually the victory came in a relatively easy way.
