LEC Summer Split 2020 Week 6 Preview
We took some time off but so did the LEC so we didn't miss much with this league, but we are back and the table is still pretty jaw ...
The League of Legends European Championship finished its first week of the Spring Split over the weekend. As usual, the matches were played during prime time on Friday and Saturday nights. More information about the league and its teams can be found on the event page.
The favorites in G2 Esports, Origen and Fnatic all won their matches against weaker opponents and Origen trumped Fnatic in the first match of the week. Rogue, who started in the Challenger Scene, also started their season with clean games but, to be fair, they didn’t have the most difficult schedule. The best part of the weekend may have been MAD Lions, who put G2 Esports on the backfoot and decisively defeated Team Vitality.
The biggest disappointment of the first week was Schalke 04, where we were expecting anything other than an 0-2 start. The team's games were messy, but maybe we shouldn’t be too surprised given two of their players have been away from the Pro Scene for awhile
This was a much anticipated match that lived up to the hype. It was the first match between two of the favorites and quite frankly the seemingly sole good match for the weekend. Both teams made changes to their lineup over winter, and had many questions to answer. Honestly, the match wasn't a real spectacle. Origen controlled the game from the start and slowly pushed Fnatic into a corner. Origen also used the same style of play against Schalke on Saturday, so you can expect more-than-average matches for Origen if this style of play is something that the team will utilize in the coming weeks. Particularly in this match, the only rookie, Origin's Mitchell “Destiny” Shaw, emerged. There was a lot of question marks surrounding the support from the Oceanic League, but the first weekend's matches showed that his abilities match up well within the LEC. What made Destiny's debut particularly impressive was that he was faced with truly experienced bot-lanes in the form of Rekkles-Hylissang and FORG1VEN-Dreams.
The opening week of the season was full of great entertainment on Twitter. This could be one of the top-20 Tweets of the past week, but instead you want to bring up a twitter account that has come with a whole new enthusiasm and a fitting eye for LoL twitter. This is Rogue from the LEC team. This tweet from Rogue to the rejuvenated opening opponent was the highlight of the week.
