The 2017 EU LCS Spring Season still has the potential to surprise us with unexpected twists and the semifinals of the EU LCS Spring playoffs are the next step to a dramatic ending. The starting field has been narrowed down to four challengers and all participating teams will already earn important Championship points for these year’s League of Legends World Championship. Many unexpected things happened in the quarterfinals but the Fnatic team is on their march to claim back the title as kings of Europe. With a brilliant 3:0 sweep Rekkles and his teammates humiliated H2K Gaming and their outstanding performances were combined with surprising champion picks like Vayne or Twitch. But now G2 Esports will await them in the semifinals, the last bastion in this fast-paced region. In contrast to Fnatic the Misfits team had many more problems in their quarterfinal match against Splyce. In the end PowerOfEvil and his teammates had to turn a 0:2 deficit into a 3:2 victory by reverse sweeping their strong opponents. The highly anticipated duel with the Unicorns of Love will be again a pleasure for all the League of Legends fans in front of their screens. Don’t miss turning in on April 15th for exciting action on Summoner’s Rift.

Schedule and Results – EU LCS Spring Semi-finals 2017

After the brilliant performance of the Fnatic team in the quarterfinals of the European Spring Split playoffs there should be some cold sweat on the foreheads of the G2 Esports players. PerkZ and Co were undoubted the best players of the regual season but the strong Fnatic team will definitely give them a run for their money. The second match between the Unicorns of Love and the Misfits will be exciting with a lot of interesting picks as well.

Preview and Predictions | EU LCS Spring Semifinals

Unicorns of Love vs. Misfits Semifinals EU LCS 2017 Spring Playoffs
Semifinals #2: Team Logo Unicorns of Love EU LCS 2017 Unicorns of Love vs. Team Logo Misfits EU LCS 2017 Misfits

Start Time: April 16th, 08:00 AM PDT/ 11:00 AM EDT/ 04:00 PM BST/ 17:00 CEST

After placing top of Group B in the EU LCS Spring Split, the Unicorns of Love have been a difficult force to overcome. They’ve dropped very few series’ and only dropped 8 individual games, that’s on par with the nearly undefeated G2 Esports. Misfits are the 2nd place Group A team but just came out on top of their Quarterfinals series; can they ride the momentum into the finals? Tune into the series when it goes live on Sunday, April 16th, to find out!

Team Logo Unicorns of Love EU LCS 2017Unicorns of Love – A dominant force in the EU LCS, the UoL team managed to stick to the top position of Group B whilst holding into a phenomenal 11:2 series score. Their individual game score was more threatening though, sitting at 23:8! The Unicorns of Love have shown significant consistency and skill, a definite top team.

Team Logo Misfits EU LCS 2017Misfits – MSF could be riding the momentum of their quarter-finals victory into this series; with great confidence comes great responsibility and if Misfits can’t maintain themselves and hold onto some shape of stability they could walk into trouble. But if MSF are performing strong then the Unicorns of Love are going to need to strike with significant force.

The Unicorns of Love look to be in a favourable position here. Their most recent performances at the end of the Spring Split had them coming out of it on a high note, they played well and managed to push forward during the final week. Misfits fell just short of this but their performances so far in the playoffs have been strong. Misfits were a 2nd place team in their group and held onto an 8:5 series score, this is significantly behind the Unicorns of Love and more closely represents the 3rd place team in Group B. It could be very back and forth between these 2 teams, both have shown great skill on the rift along with a considerable amount of consistency. It’s likely we’re going to see a few niche things but I expect to see a few closely balanced games. But seeing as we’ve not seen UoL perform in a few weeks there’s a chance that Misfits have a slight favour.

Prediction: Unicorns of Love Victory. The Unicorns of Love haven’t been seen performing for a while; this can play as an advantage for them. With how well they were performing during the split it’s unlikely they’ll run into too much trouble here, but with improvements happening quickly now I expect MSF to challenge UoL; this won’t stop the Unicorns of Love from coming out on top though!

G2 Esports vs. Fnatic Semifinals EU LCS 2017 Spring Playoffs
Semifinals #1: Team Logo G2 Esports EU LCS 2017 G2 Esports vs. Team Logo Fnatic EU LCS 2017 Fnatic

Start Time: April 15th, 08:00 AM PDT/ 11:00 AM EDT/ 04:00 PM BST/ 17:00 CEST

Sitting at 6:7 at the end of the spring split obviously wasn’t good enough for Fnatic; they came into the Spring Playoffs as a bottom tier contender and have already managed to spark some of that Fnatic Fury. They managed to take down H2k with ease and pushed on through; will G2 Esports be able to contain them? Tune into the series when it goes live on Saturday, April 15th, to find out!

Team Logo G2 Esports EU LCS 2017G2 Esports – G2 easily took the top of Group A during the spring split and maintained it, they were nearly an undefeated team until the end of the spring split caught them. Any weakness during this series could be their downfall so they’ll need to put on that top place performance. Holding a 12:1 series record during the split is impressive, but it means a lot less if they can’t perform now.

Team Logo Fnatic EU LCS 2017Fnatic – Although they were held back during the spring split they managed to find a way into the playoffs, although they weren’t a favourite because of their performances during the split they’ve already stirred up a lot of commotion. They’ve shown unique strategies and very niche champions that could make more appearances so make sure you don’t miss out!

G2 Esports look to be at an advantage here based on their Spring Split records but if Fnatic’s recent performances prove anything to us it’s that they’re willing to fight through hell and fire. Fnatic have an outstanding history of performances during peak times in the LCS and the organisation is very proud of it. Fnatic definitely aren’t going to go down easily but with G2 being a top performing team for the entirety of the split they definitely look to have an upper hand here. Fnatic will need to persevere with those niche strategies and champions if they want to catch G2 out, playing in a more stable and slow paced style could give G2 exactly what they need to fight for the series.

Prediction: G2 Esports Victory. Once again, I would love to see Fnatic take a hold of this series but the statistics are just not on their side. G2 Esports met an unlikely loss at the end of the split but they’ve definitely learned from it, having also been able to witness the improvements from Fnatic I think G2 are going to be more than ready to take this series.
