Splyce vs. Mysterious Monkeys EU LCS 2017 Summer Split Week 2
Match #1: Team Logo Splyce EU LCS 2017 Splyce vs. Mysterious Monkeys EU LCS 2017 Team Logo Mysterious Monkeys

June 11th, 08:00 AM PST / 11:00 AM EST/ 17:00 CEST

Splyce have managed to take a step forward, their earliest performances in the split were a bit worrying but they’ve managed to strike back in their series against Team Vitality. They’ve got a few obvious points that they need to work on, but so do the Mysterious Monkeys. MM are looking for their 1st series win here, can they pull it off? Tune into the series on Sunday, June 11th, to find out!

Team Logo Splyce EU LCS 2017Splyce – Their early game is definitely a weaker point for them, they fell to Team Vitality in the earlier stages of their games and they had a very lacking form of control. They often gave away objectives and didn’t contest certain opportunities, if this trend continues the other competing teams will take advantage.

Mysterious Monkeys EU LCS 2017 Team LogoMysterious Monkeys – MM haven’t really been in the most forgiving situations, they’ve only played against teams that are sitting in strong positions and they’ve yet to be presented an opportunity to prove themselves. This series could be that opportunity, Splyce are 1:1 and have shown weakness, but can MM push through?

Splyce look to be at an advantage here but their early game weaknesses could cause a lot of issues for them. Mysterious Monkeys haven’t been given many opportunities to thrive and it’s likely that they’ll find a few of those opportunities throughout this series. We’ve not seen MM in a controlling situation yet and I think they’re going to use it well, so Splyce are going to need to work on their early map control and vision control. This should give them opportunities to find and maintain a lead whilst holding MM back. If they don’t make this adaption then MM could take a very controlling position in the earlier stages of the game and find opportunities to thrive.

Prediction: Splyce Victory. Splyce have definitely shown an early weakness, but their mid game is fairly dominant. Even when falling into a gold deficit they’ve often found opportunities to make it seem negligible. Because of this I think they’ll find ways on top of the games after the earlier stages and find a way on top of the series, we could be seeing some of the MM strengths shine though.

Unicorns of Love vs. H2K Gaming EU LCS 2017 Summer Split Week 2
Match #2: Team Logo Unicorns of Love EU LCS 2017 Unicorns of Love vs. Team Logo H2K Gaming EU LCS 2017 H2K Gaming

June 11th, 11:00 AM PST / 02:00 PM EST/ 20:00 CEST

Both of these performing teams are currently sitting undefeated, both of which have appeared to be lacking a compatible challenger. They’ve taken all of their games fairly convincingly and have shown some dominance over the region, but only one of them can remain undefeated after this. Will it be H2k, a previous top position challenger? Or will it be the Unicorns of Love, a previous top team? Tune into the series when it goes live on Sunday, June 11th, to find out!

Team Logo Unicorns of Love EU LCS 2017Unicorns of Love – UoL have had some extremely dominant games and have also shown some great adaption, their strategies have varied depending on their opponents. They’ve shown that they can turn on the aggression during the earlier stages of the game as well as having a controlling strategy up their sleeve for those more meta games, it’ll be hard for other teams to adapt if UoL stay ahead.

Team Logo H2K Gaming EU LCS 2017H2k – H2k have had fewer opportunities to flaunt their early aggression but their controlling style of play has maintained a good record. They’ve shown that they can slow down the pace of opposing teams whilst looking for their lead, and once they’ve achieved their initial goal they can be a very dominant force on the rift.

It’s hard to come to a conclusion as to what team is at an advantage; both teams have shown their strengths and haven’t been overly challenged. Unicorns of Love, I think, have had more commanding victories and have shown greater use of adaptions which could certainly be advantageous for them but H2k have shown more mastery of their strategy. I think a lot of this series is going to be about how well the teams hold out during the earlier stages of the game, this means map and objective control during those earlier stages is vital. Any mistakes in the earlier stages could very quickly hand over a lead which, in the hands of these 2 performing teams, could snowball quickly.

Prediction: Unicorns of Love Victory. I expect it to be a difficult fight for them to come out on top, with H2k being a strong performing team at the moment, but with the few advantages they’ve shown I think they’re the most likely to survive the series. Their ability to adapt is extremely formidable and will give them advantages as the series progressing, making them a difficult opponent to beat.

EU LCS Summer Split Week 2 – Day 3

Misfits vs. ROCCAT EU LCS 2017 Summer Split Week 2
Match #1: Team Logo Misfits EU LCS 2017 Misfits vs. Team Logo ROCCAT EU LCS 2017 ROCCAT

June 10th, 08:00 AM PST / 11:00 AM EST/ 17:00 CEST

Roccat are slowly finding themselves in a difficult situation but they’ve already shown plenty of promise and potential. They were able to contest their series against G2 Esports, which shows huge improvement on their end, but they’ve got even more challenges ahead. Misfits are performing as expected, still strong but unable to take down the top teams. Does this give Roccat an opportunity? Tune into the series when it goes live on Saturday, June 10th, to find out!

Misfits EU LCS 2017 Team LogoMisfits – MSF were previously one of the strongest teams in the region but so far this split they’ve had few opportunities to once again prove themselves. This series against Roccat could be the exact opportunity they need, Roccat have shown some strength and if MSF can rise above them they’ll be able to solidify a stronger position on the ladder.

Team Logo ROCCAT EU LCS 2017Roccat – ROC have shown great potential, but potential doesn’t push them up the ladder. They’re going to need to utilize and adapt more against the upcoming opponents because, if we’ve learned anything so far from the game played, they’re yet to face the strongest teams; things will only get more difficult.

Misfits look to be at an advantage here, having already proven their dominance over teams that are struggling to make a climb, but they’re yet to prove themselves against a top performing team like Roccat have. Roccat’s performance against G2 Esports really pushes their potential forward as they were able to contest that series, but they’re still yet to prove themselves. If Roccat can put on more strong performances it’s likely they’re going to give middle placed teams a very hard time, even pushing higher placed teams to their limit. That poses a big threat to Misfits as they’re yet to really prove themselves, this could be a very tricky series for both teams.

Prediction: Misfits Victory. Misfits dropping their series to Fnatic isn’t overly surprising, Fnatic are performing on an outstanding level and are yet to be beaten. If Misfits are playing on a level equal to the Spring Split I think they’ll come out on top of this series, but Roccat are going to put up a significant fight.

Ninjas in Pyjamas vs. G2 Esports EU LCS 2017 Summer Split Week 2
Match #2: Ninjas in PyjamasMysterious Monkeys EU LCS 2017 Team Logo Ninjas in Pyjamas vs. Team Logo G2 Esports EU LCS 2017 G2 Esports

June 10th, 11:00 AM PST / 02:00 PM EST/ 20:00 CEST

G2 Esports ran into trouble when trying to take down the invigorated Fnatic, but they’ve still shown great strength in their performances. They were able to contest their series against Fnatic and took a series victory off of Roccat in the previous week. They’re in a more difficult situation in the Summer Split, in comparison to their Spring Split reign, but they still have opportunities to rise. Will NiP attempt to hold them back, striving for a climb of their own? Tune into the series when it goes live on Saturday, June 10th, to find out!

Ninjas in Pyjamas EU LCS 2017 Team LogoNinjas In Pyjamas – NIP are struggling, they’re currently sitting at the bottom of the ladder and they’ve been having a hard time contest games against every team they’ve performed against so far. It certainly doesn’t help that they’ve been placed against teams that have previously proven themselves, but this series is going to continue to be a challenge for them.

Team Logo G2 Esports EU LCS 2017G2 Esports – G2 have had a few issues of their own, they’re no longer the extremely dominant European team that they previously were. They’re still showing great strength and are on the climb, but having faced issues so early in the split could bring more trouble their way.

G2 Esports definitely appear to be at an advantage here, they’ve already taken a series under their belt and they’ve got such a rich history of strength in Europe. Their current performances are strong and fairly reliable, with a few additional adaptions they could push for that top spot. The same can’t be said for Ninjas In Pyjamas at the moment, they’ve been unable to take a single game and now they’re facing the Spring Split champions. They’re going to need to play fairly patiently, waiting for key opportunities and adapting to G2.

Prediction: G2 Esports Victory. G2 Esports are in a stronger position and have shown significant more strength that NiP so far. They’re the previous champions of Europe and are always in a state of improving. I think they’ve got stronger individual players and their macro management will only solidify their leads.

EU LCS Summer Split Week 2 – Day 2

Splyce vs. Team Vitality EU LCS 2017 Summer Split Week 2
Match #1: Team Logo Splyce EU LCS 2017 Splyce vs. Team Logo Vitality EU LCS 2017 Team Vitality

June 9th, 08:00 AM PST / 11:00 AM EST/ 17:00 CEST

Both Splyce and Vitality lost their games during week 1 so their power ranking so far is a little skewed. Splyce, during their week 1 performances, looked surprisingly resilient during their 1st game but quickly got overpowered for the remainder of the series, their late game shot calling was a weak point and if VIT can abuse that they could find a lead. VIT were no better off though, so they’re going to need to step up here. Can they pull it off? Tune into the series on Friday, June 9th, to find out!

Team Logo Splyce EU LCS 2017Splyce – SPY were challenging for H2k to overcome during their 1st performance but once H2k figured them out they made quick work of the series. Splyce are going to need to work on their adaptions and will definitely need to work towards and improved map control; this should help them cover their weaknesses in the weeks to come.

Team Logo Vitality EU LCS 2017Team Vitality – VIT couldn’t put out much during their performances in week 1, they constantly fell into a disadvantage and UoL made quick work of them throughout the entirety of the series. Team Vitality only picked up a few kills in the entire series and has a lot to improve. Their early game was weak, some confidence and more commanding vision control can assist this, and their late game was non-existent because they couldn’t survive long enough. Slowing down the pace of the game and playing to their advantages is a must.

Splyce appear to be at an advantage here, both teams may have lost their series’ during week 1 but Splyce definitely put on stronger and more convincing performances. They were able to hold back H2k for a very long time during their 1st game and managed to create quite a lot of pressure before collapsing in the following game. Team Vitality are going to need to watch out for early pressure, if Splyce can pump out some early aggression they could quickly take hold of a lead and VIT haven’t shown strengths when a come-back is needed. Team Vitality will need to work with more cohesion, communicate confidently and work on their mid-game macro management.

Prediction: Splyce Victory. Splyce have shown that they can control the earlier and middle stages of a game, even if they’re unable to build a lead from it. When against H2k they were able to hold their own for a significant period of time whereas VIT collapsed quickly against UoL. I think Splyce have an earlier advantage and this could show throughout this series.

Mysterious Monkeys vs. Unicorns of Love EU LCS 2017 Summer Split Week 2
Match #2: Mysterious Monkeys EU LCS 2017 Team Logo Mysterious Monkeys vs. Team Logo Unicorns of Love EU LCS 2017 Unicorns of Love

June 9th, 11:00 AM PST / 02:00 PM EST/ 20:00 CEST

Mysterious Monkeys were unable to put on significant performances against H2k during their 1st week in the LCS but their early game has definitely shown some potential. Unicorns of Love have had a stampede of performances so far and Mysterious Monkeys will be looking to prove themselves here. Can MM make a push? Tune into the series when it goes live on Friday, June 9th, to find out!

Mysterious Monkeys EU LCS 2017 Team LogoMysterious Monkeys – MM pumped out a really promising early game when performing against H2k, their laning was reliable and they were able to pump out a significant amount of pressure. Their issue was with their ability to push objectives and maintain a gold lead. Even when they were in a stronger position they were unable to create or force opportunities. With a bit more confidence I think they could be a challenge.

Team Logo Unicorns of Love EU LCS 2017Unicorns of Love – UoL have had a pretty easy time so far in the LCS and even though we’re only 1 week in they’re looking strong. Their performances during week 1 had them quickly taking a series, especially the 2nd game, and if they’re able to find a lead against MM we could be witnessing something similar here.

Unicorns of Love look to be at an advantage here, their performances during week 1 were strong and their 2nd performance was close to perfection. If they can pump out early pressure similar to their 2nd game Mysterious Monkeys are going to find themselves back into a very bad coroner. MM are going to need to rely on their early strengths, their jungler has shown great potential at getting them a lead but MM will need to build a composition that allows this. Along with early pressure they’re going to need to work on objective control and finding ways to force fights or create opportunities, if UoL can feel safe and play safe they’ll just cause havoc during the later stages of the game.

Prediction: Unicorns of Love Victory. UoL have shown a great amount of potential so far and it’s only been a single week of performances. They’re going to have trouble against some of the other performing teams but weighing their strengths and weaknesses against MM has them at quite an advantage; I expect this to show throughout the series.

EU LCS Summer Split Week 2 – Day 1

Misfits vs. Ninjas in Pyjamas EU LCS 2017 Summer Split Week 2
Match #1: Team Logo Misfits EU LCS 2017 Misfits vs. Ninjas in PyjamasMysterious Monkeys EU LCS 2017 Team Logo Ninjas in Pyjamas

June 8th, 08:00 AM PST / 11:00 AM EST/ 17:00 CEST

Misfits were previously one of the most consistent and strongest performing teams in the region, they’ve fallen short on their 1st week of performances as they only had a single series and fell to Fnatic. They’ve still shown some potential and could very well put on some fantastic performances in the future, but how well can they hold back a fairly unknown Ninjas in Pyjamas? Tune into the series on Thursday, June 8th, to find out!

Misfits EU LCS 2017 Team LogoMisfits – MSF were quite a strong team in the Spring Split, they put on strong performances right until they end. They’ve had a rough start to the Summer Split and will need to quickly pick things back up if they’re aiming for a top position in their group again. They’re going against an underdog team here so it’s an opportunity for them to make a statement and prove their strength.

Ninjas in Pyjamas EU LCS 2017 Team LogoNinjas In Pyjamas – A roster backed by a very dedicated organisation, NiP have got a line-up of very talented players; all of which have the potential to contest their lanes and help carry their team here. NiP is having a tough time at the start of the Summer Split but they’ve got time to take a step back and assess their opponents here.

Ninjas In Pyjamas put on stronger performances during week 1 and are looking a little stronger than Misfits at the moment. I definitely wouldn’t put them far ahead though, as both MSF and NiP lost quite drastically to Fnatic. NiP put up a much stronger fight in their 2nd game against Fnatic whereas Misfits did the opposite and fell more quickly. I think if NiP can stay level headed they’ll be able to build a lead comfortable enough to test their late game shot-calling. Misfits are going to need to work on their macro management and shot calling if they want to come out on top of this series.

Prediction: Ninjas In Pyjamas Victory. Misfits looked significantly weaker in their performances against Fnatic, their 2nd game ended in just over 20 minutes. Their lanes were quickly out of their control and they couldn’t find a way back; if NiP manage to find a lead I think Misfits are going to continue having trouble.

G2 Esports vs. Fnatic EU LCS 2017 Summer Split Week 2
Match #2: Team Logo G2 Esports EU LCS 2017 G2 Esports vs. Team Logo Fnatic EU LCS 2017 Fnatic

June 8th, 11:00 AM PST / 02:00 PM EST/ 20:00 CEST

Certainly an exciting series to come; G2 Esports are the Spring Split Champions and managed to achieve that title whilst running into very few problems. After their performances at MSI they were quite happy, but coming back to their own region has been difficult. They’ve already ran into issues when facing off against Roccat, how well can they handle the much improved Fnatic? Tune into the series when it goes live on Thursday, June 8th, to find out!

Team Logo G2 Esports EU LCS 2017G2 Esports – G2 managed to take a victory after their 1st series of the split but they’re going to need to be a little worried, dropping a game to Roccat this early could lead to more future troubles. They’re going to need to work on their map control a little more as it’s going to be an integral part of their late game control.

Team Logo Fnatic EU LCS 2017Fnatic – FNC have put on phenomenal performances so far and are looking like the current team to beat. They’ve shown few weaknesses and are looking like the glorious and historical team that they once were. Fnatic will need to watch out when facing off against G2 though, as G2 are extremely adaptable and won’t drop without putting up a significant fight.

Fnatic look to be at an advantage here, they’ve already taken 2 series victories and have done so without dropping a single game. The majority of their performances were extremely clean and well executed, proving their strength over their opponents. G2 Esports are going to need to watch out in the earlier stages of the game as Fnatic have shown a tendency to build early control around objectives as well as pressuring their lanes. Fnatic will need to keep an eye out for any early aggression from the G2 jungler, if he gets a champion with early game strengths the laners of Fnatic will need to work on their individual vision control to stay safe.

Prediction: Fnatic Victory. I think G2 Esports are going to put up a fantastic fight, but with them dropping a game in their series against Roccat and having some difficulties during the series they’re going to need to do more to prove their strength this split. Fnatic, on the other hand, are performing on a phenomenal level and I think they’ll continue to show that during this series.
