Week 7 – EU LCS Spring Split 2017

With the upcoming Week 7 of the LCS Spring Season the LCS Spring Split 2017 playoff games are already coming to a close and soon we will find out which team will represent the European LCS region at the Mid-Season Invitational tournament 2017 in Brazil. Similar to the League of Legends World Championship 2017 this year’s prestigious tournament has a completely overhauled format. This year there will be a Play-In stage and 13 of the best teams from all over the world are competing as regional champions for better seeds at the LoL World Championship 2017. If the trend continues in the last few weeks of the EU LCS the European region will most likely send the G2 Esports team to participate in this important tournament again. PerkZ and Co are the only undefeated team in the league and no other contender is currently on par with G2 Esports. Then again the four worst teams in the EU LCS have scored a record of 2 wins and 26 defeats altogether, the newcomers of the European Challenger League like Schalke04 are already longing for this year’s Summer Promotion tournament. The last weeks of the LCS Spring Split will guarantee lots of action on Summoner’s Rift so don’t miss turning in on March 9th!

Giants Gaming vs. Origen EU LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 7
Match #1: Team Logo Giants EU LCS 2017 Giants Gaming vs. Team Logo Origen EU LCS 2017 Origen

March 12th, 07:00 AM PST/ 10:00 AM EST/ 16:00 CET

Both of these teams are sitting by the bottom of their groups, Giants have been given an opportunity to push up the ladder and contest a position against Roccat. Origen are in a position where they could take their 1st series victory here, it’s not much this late in the split but it’s an improvement! To find out who comes out on top make sure you catch the games when they go live on Sunday, March 12th!

Team Logo Origen EU LCS 2017Origen – OG have only managed to come out on top of a single individual game so far this split, they’ve tried to put on some strong performances and have played both aggressively and passively. It’s looked like a lot of things they’ve tried haven’t helped them too much, now we’re late in the split and Origen is running out of options, what can they do?

Team Logo Giants EU LCS 2017Giants – GIA are sitting in a slightly stronger position in comparison to Origen, they’ve got a series victory under their belt already and are in a position where they could climb a place on the ladder now. They’ve had a few strong performances which have led to them taking 5 individual games; this is a great series opportunity for Giants.

Giants appear to be at the advantage here, they’ve taken significantly more individual games and have a series under their belt. Even though the performances of Giants haven’t made a huge impact on the ladder it’s done significantly more than Origen’s performances. Origen is running out of options, they really need to claw a few wins away and this is a fairly good series for them to start that. Playing with vision heavily in the earlier stages of the game will open them to skirmishes; their middle laner could make rotations around the bottom side of the map to control the objective and the bottom lane. If OG manages to slow down their opponents they could pick up a lead during the earlier stages of the game and use that to control the pace of the game, getting a lead in the series.

Prediction: Origen Victory. It may seem a little farfetched to many of you, but during their performances earlier in the week they were ahead in their series. I think if they play through this series with as much confidence and strength they’ll find a way to take the series.

EU LCS Spring Split Week 7 – Day 3:

ROCCAT vs. Team Vitality EU LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 7
Match #1: Team Logo ROCCAT EU LCS 2017 ROCCAT vs. Team Logo Vitality EU LCS 2017 Team Vitality

March 11th, 07:00 AM PST/ 10:00 AM EST/ 16:00 CET

Roccat are in a very difficult position, they’ve been sitting by the bottom of their group for quite some time and they’ve rarely found opportunities to create an impact on the ladder. Team Vitality have been having a hard time of their own, climbing the ladder can be a great challenge and VIT have recently taken another series victory, can they continue this trend? Tune into the games on Saturday, March 11th, to find out!

Team Logo Vitality EU LCS 2017Team Vitality – VIT have recently made a small push forward, they’ve just taken another series victory and are taking steps forward; in the hopes that they can create an impact on the ladder. VIT have recently shown more strength, but this series will give us a better idea of their overall ladder placement.

Team Logo ROCCAT EU LCS 2017Roccat – They’ve just taken their 1st series victory of the season, their morale is high and if they’re looking to make a push then starting now will leave them time to create significant impact. Roccat have had a lot of bad performances so far this season but improvements have given them a series, if the trend continues then Roccat will quickly create contentions.

Team Vitality look to be at an advantage here, they’ve got a better individual game score and hold more series victories. Their performances so far this season has been slightly more consistent and they’ve manage to create more impact on the ladder. Roccat are going to need to play with some patience during the earlier stages of the game, setting up strong lines of vision close to their lanes will give them some objective control along with great early game defence. Setting up for the middle stages of the game, they’re going to need to create some advantages through opportunities found around objectives or in areas where their vision control is dominant. This could lead to them creating quick engagements to find a lead.

Prediction: Team Vitality Victory. Out of both of the performing teams, VIT look like the greater prospects here. They’ve had more regular strong performances and even though their statistics are only ahead slightly I think their strengths will aide them in taking leads along with the series.

Misfits vs. H2K Gaming EU LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 7
Match #2: Team Logo Misfits EU LCS 2017 Misfits vs. Team H2k Logo - LoL Worlds H2K Gaming

March 11th, 10:00 AM PST/ 01:00 PM EST/ 19:00 CET

Misfits are sitting ever so slightly ahead of H2k in terms of their performances so far this season, but how good have their more recent performances been? Both Misfits and H2k have rarely fallen this season, their recent performances have been strong so this is going to be a clash of 2 great teams. If H2k manage to take the series they’ll open up opportunities to climb the ladder, can they do it? Tune into the games on Saturday, March 11th, to find out!

Team Logo Misfits EU LCS 2017Misfits – MSF are currently sitting by the top of their group, closely following behind G2. They’ve manage to claim a fantastic series score, sitting on 7 victories and only a single series loss, along with dropping few games between their victories. This shows us their consistency and their strengths, along with showing us, and other performing teams, a few of their weaker points. Can they cover them and climb?

Team Logo H2K Gaming EU LCS 2017H2k – If H2k can take hold of this series they’ll be pushing into the 1st place position in group B. Closely following behind MSF and G2, H2k could claim a higher position on the overall regional ladder. This series will open up a lot of opportunities for them, ones that they’re going to put up a serious fight for.

Misfits would appear to be at a slight advantage here, even though only a single game separates these 2 performing teams that single game is a difference in consistency and proven adaption. H2k were close to taking more victories but were unable to take over contested series, this could quickly become a problem for them as the MSF’s adaptions are better. H2k will need to try to utilize some earlier pressure; if they can force MSF to play more passively they could create their own safety with greater rewards. Skirmishing in advantageous groups could give H2k exactly what they need to gain control of the game. MSF will need to maintain strong lines of vision if they’re looking to take control.

Prediction: H2k Victory. Both teams are looking to be in a fairly similar position, with a single game separating them I think we could be looking at a close series. I expect H2k to find a few early advantages but with how well MSF have shown that they can adapt H2k could run into issue pushing, however in a long series I think they’ll find enough opportunities to come out on top.

EU LCS Spring Split Week 7 – Day 2:

Fnatic vs. Unicorns of Love EU LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 7
Match #1: Team Logo Fnatic EU LCS 2017 Fnatic vs. Team Logo Unicorns of Love EU LCS 2017 Unicorns of Love

March 10th, 08:00 AM PST/ 11:00 AM EST/ 17:00 CET

Fnatic have proven to be a pretty ‘middle of the pack’ team, they’re falling to teams above them and pushing back against the teams placed below them. Unicorns of Love are sitting in a stronger position, being one of the best performing teams in the entirety of the EU LCS but they’ve not found much success lately. Who will come out on top? Tune into the games on Friday, March 10th, to find out!

Team Logo Fnatic EU LCS 2017Fnatic – FNC have been unable to find much success of their own lately as well, the only series they’ve managed to come out on top of in the past few weeks was against Origen, a team sitting very clearly at the bottom of Group B. Fnatic are sitting very comfortably in 3rd place of Group B but haven’t shown enough improvements to push forward, could this be a start for them?

Team Logo Unicorns of Love EU LCS 2017Unicorns of Love – UoL are sitting in a similar position to FNC, in terms of their recent match history. For the past few weeks they’ve been unable to claim a series as their own, apart from their singular series victory over Roccat who’re sitting at the bottom of Group A. Unicorns of Love have been given an opportunity to prove their strength over a middle placed team here.

Unicorns of Love would appear to be at an advantage here, not by overly much though. They’ve got a better overall match history and are sitting with a significantly cleaner score. They’re sitting on a 13:6 individual game score with 6 series victories under their belt, Fnatic have only managed to take hold of 4 series’ and are sitting with an individual game score of 10:11. They’re holding onto a win-rate that’s lower than 50% so their consistency is definitely lacking. If they play with some patience, pick up a few niche champions and pressure UoL around the middle and later stages of the game I think they’ll find advantageous opportunities, but the Unicorns of Love could easily cause significant amounts of pressure in the earlier stages of the game; Fnatic will need to play with great care.

Prediction: Unicorns of Love Victory. Sitting with a better overall match history, a significantly better win-rate and having more impact made recently I think UoL are the most likely team to come out on top of this match-up. Their consistency is leaps ahead of Fnatic and I think it’ll play an important role during this series.

G2 Esports vs. Splyce EU LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 7
Match #2: Team Logo G2 Esports EU LCS 2017 G2 Esports vs. Team Logo Splyce EU LCS 2017 Splyce

March 10th, 11:00 AM PST/ 02:00 PM EST/ 20:00 CET

G2 Esports are ever so close to having their position on the ladder contested; a single mistake from them could lead to them losing their position. They’re still sitting as an undefeated team, at least in terms of series victories and losses, so they’re bringing challenges to all opponents. Splyce are sitting in the middle of Group B and have been on a bit of a win-streak lately, can they continue it? Tune into the games on Friday, March 10th, to find out!

Team Logo G2 Esports EU LCS 2017G2 Esports – G2 remain undefeated, they’ve taken a few hits to their overall score but have managed to maintain their top position. A few teams are working on ways to play against them and it would appear that a few teams are getting fairly close. G2 are sitting significantly ahead of Splyce but underestimating them could quickly lead to their demise.

Team Logo Splyce EU LCS 2017Splyce – SPY have been performing really well lately, for the past few weeks they’ve gone undefeated and have started to push their way up their group. They’ve shown a few improvements but for the last few weeks they’ve not really been tested. The improvements they’ve made could push them forward great lengths but until they’ve proven their new strengths they’ll still be facing trouble.

G2 Esports would appear to be at a pretty clear advantage here, both teams have gone undefeated for a while but G2 Esports are maintaining their record from the start of the season. G2 Esports are sitting with a phenomenal 16:3 individual score and 8 series victories under their belt, Splyce have taken hold of an 11:7 individual game score and are sitting fairly comfortably in their group with 5 series victory. Even though only a few series victories separate these 2 performing teams, G2 have run into significantly less trouble on their journey to the top of the ladder. Splyce are going to need to watch out for any early aggression and will want to try to create advantages with superior vision. Keeping a close eye on rotations could give them a few skirmishing opportunities, to aide them in finding a lead. It’s going to be a challenge, but only 1 team will come out of this whilst remaining undefeated.

Prediction: G2 Esports Victory. G2 are undefeated for a reason, it’s been that way since the start of the split and although they’re beginning to run into more trouble they’ve been adapting to the changes nicely. They’ve managed to keep up their consistency and have constantly made minor improvements to stay on top, I expect them to continue pushing their undefeated status.

EU LCS Spring Split Week 7 – Day 1:

ROCCAT vs. Origen EU LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 7
Match #1: Team Logo ROCCAT EU LCS 2017 ROCCAT vs. Team Logo Origen EU LCS 2017 Origen

March 9th, 08:00 AM PST/ 11:00 AM EST/ 17:00 CET

Roccat have still been unable to make a push up through their group, they’ve been unable to take a single series but Origen is in an extremely similar position. Both teams are sitting with 0 series victories but that’s about to change, at least for one of these performing teams. Which one will come out on top and take their 1st series? Tune into the games on Thursday, March 9th, to find out!

Team Logo ROCCAT EU LCS 2017Roccat – They may have been unable to take a series but at least they’ve been able to come out on top of a few individual games, this puts their average performances above that of Origen’s and could give them a slight edge, in terms of consistency and peak performance, during this series.

Team Logo Origen EU LCS 2017Origen – Origen are in the most difficult position out of all of the competing EU LCS teams, they’re sitting without a single series victory and haven’t been able to take an individual game victory; yet. If they’re going to start making some late split impacts this is their opportunity, taking down the opposing group’s bottom team.

Roccat would appear to be at a very slight advantage, but only because they’ve been able to take a few individual games; however it has been 4 weeks since they were able to take their last game and they’ve not made many improvements. Both Roccat and Origen are in desperate need of a victory and time is closing in on them both, the split is past the half-way point and every additional week is a step closer to the end with more pressures. Without many options left I hope to see these 2 performing teams utilize some early aggression, show improvements to their vision control and finally show us how their late game performances can be.

Prediction: Roccat Victory. Roccat have been able to contest a few series, even though they were unable to come out on top. At least they’ve shown some strength, whereas Origen has been unable to even push an opponent into a difficult position. With both teams performing on the lower end of the ladder I’d like to see some challenge; their potential could bloom here and as Roccat have shown more already I think they’ll come out on top of the series.

Giants Gaming vs. Team Vitality EU LCS Spring Split 2017 Week 7
Match #2: Team Logo Giants EU LCS 2017 Giants Gaming vs. Team Logo Vitality EU LCS 2017 Team Vitality

March 9th, 11:00 AM PST/ 02:00 PM EST/ 20:00 CET

Team Vitality is showing few improvements, but for their position in their group and on their ladder they’re staying fairly consistent. Giants nearly reflect Team Vitality in terms of score and performances, they’re in a similar position in their own group and have also been as consistent. Both teams have shown similar skill levels, but only one of them can take a step forward. Who will it be? Tune into the games when they go live on Thursday, March 9th, to find out!

Team Logo Vitality EU LCS 2017Team Vitality – VIT have been able to contest a total of 3 series’, one of which they were able to come out on top of. They pushed two teams to the edge when they were contesting the other series’ but they’ve shown little to no improvements over the course of the last few weeks. If they’re unable to keep up with Giants they could quickly fall.

Team Logo Giants EU LCS 2017Giants – Whilst they might be in a very similar to VIT, they’ve taken an additional loss. It’s not a huge statistical change but it does mean that when they took their series they did so with greater difficulty than VIT. If they’ve not made improvements, even if they’re just small improvements, I’m afraid they’re going to have a harder time taking the series.

Team Vitality seems to be at a very minor advantage here, but personally I wouldn’t consider it a great enough advantage to impact the series much. Both teams have played consistently for their ladder position, even if it’s been fairly consistent weaker performances. Both teams need to make improvements, it’s necessary if they want to continue performing in the EU LCS. But as for this series, both teams making minor improvements won’t create a big enough advantage; significant improvements need to have been made. Giants need to improve their adaptions throughout individual games along with their early and middle game performances if they want to push ahead of VIT here; Team Vitality are going to want to utilize more aggression and try to create a linear lead, something they can use to push for both pressure and advantages.

Prediction: Team Vitality Victory. Even though their slight advantage is only minor, it’s still an advantage. They’ve had to worry less about their adaptions throughout a series so they’ve had more time to tackle their real issues. This could give them the advantage they need to overcome Giants and take the series.
