Lemondogs remained the undisputed number one team in the current LCS Eu standings. Fnatic went on a winning streak against Ninjas in Pyjamas and Evil Geniuses garnering the second spot. Evil Geniuses landed the third spot after winning both games against Gambit Gaming with a shockingly fantastic play by Krepo’s mid Anivia and Froggen’s support Blitzcrank. Gambit Gaming was sent to fourth place after losing both games to Evil Geniuses and Ninjas in Pyjamas held on to fifth place after losing to both Fnatic and Gambit Gaming. Team Alternate is at the tail end of the top 6 after winning the tiebreaker against SK Gaming and they finally advance to the Playoffs.

After almost twelve hours of gameplay, the LCS EU Superweek has finally drawn to a close with one of the most satisfying yet craziest games of the week thanks to EG’s Froggen and Krepo switchup. Krepo’s Anivia ended the game with a 7-1-8 record and landed their team on third spot. Now, these teams will have to bring their A game next week as they head for Playoffs at Gamescom. Lemondogs are sure to fire up their game as they try to fend off a more aggressive and rekindled Fnatic and EG. Team Alternate and NiP should improve their gameplay if they want to enter the top three which will represent the region for the World Championships. But that does not mean to say Gambit Gaming should be floundering around as teams from both sides are very eager to take out each other to grab that precious third spot. Watch the Playoffs next week as the EU LCS finally choose their top three teams to represent the region for the World Championships to be held in Los Angeles.
