Match for 3rd place EU LCS Spring Playoffs 2015: H2K vs. SK GAMING - Match Teaser and Stats

Head to Head Record in regular Season: H2K 1 : 1 SK Gaming
(April 18th, 08:00 AM PDT/11:00 AM EDT/05:00 PM CEST)

Logo of LCS EU Team SK GamingThe top seed of the season, SK Gaming, was defeated by the dark horse of the tournament, Unicorns of Love. Although the series went up to 5 games, it only showed that even the strongest team has its own flaws and weaknesses.

SK Gaming late game composition in their first game against Unicorns of Love did not bode very well as the Unicorns of Love transitioned their early game advantage into a late game assurance. The excellent map control of Kikis helped his team secure first blood and objectives which led to a snowballed PowerofEvil.

H2K Gaming - LoL Team LogoH2K was more promising in their first game against Fnatic and even though they did not win the series, they were able to put up a spirited fight. H2K was able to steal 2 out of 3 games from the double-smite strategy of Fnatic. Hjarman was able to steal the dragon away with a single auto-attack from Fnatic in their first game, even with Fnatic having double smite from 2 different champions.

Prediction: Even though this is just a battle for 3rd place, I think this will be one of the best series this season. Although both teams split their encounters this season, H2K has shown more consistency than SK Gaming as evident by their series against Fnatic. SK Gaming excels well at organized team fights but H2K can react just as fast and if both teams play standard lanes, Ryu should outplay Fox in the middle lane and that might be the key factor of H2K winning this series. This might go both ways but with the way SK Gaming played against Unicorns of Love, they might just only steal a single game away from H2K.

H2K on this one, 3 games to 1.

Finals EU LCS Spring Playoffs 2015: FNATIC vs. UNICORNS OF LOVE - Match Teaser and Stats

Head to Head Record in regular Season: Fnatic 0 : 2 Unicorns of Love
(April 19th, 08:00 AM PDT/11:00 AM EDT/05:00 PM CEST)

Logo of LCS EU Team Unicorns of LoveWith the series going into its full length, Unicorns of Love continue to prove their worth as they defeated SK Gaming in the semifinals. Their first game was really an easy one as they were able to dominate SK Gaming in all aspects of the game, as shown by the 11 kills and 0 deaths of PowerofEvil with his Kog’Maw.

As the series went on, SK Gaming was able to take 2 games away from Unicorns of Love but only because Svenskeren denied Kikis the map control and assistance to PowerofEvil. But when Kikis got PowerofEvil rolling, their victory was secured.

Logo of LCS EU Team FnaticFnatic had a more interesting series against H2K than Unicorns of Love. Although Fnatic was 2 games behind H2K, they were able to comeback from behind and win the series. They were very sloppy in their first game as they were not able to turn their early advantage into a late game victory.

It was a very intense series as both teams did very well this season and it only showed how a best-of-five series can easily turn the tide into one team’s favour.

Prediction: Fnatic excels in early aggression and unorganized teamfights while Unicorns of Love excels at standard lanes and late-game comebacks. If you look at most of the games of Unicorns of Love, Kikis have been their get-go from the start and they rely heavily on his ganks and map presence.

Kikis have been the get-go of Unicorns of Love from the start and I am sure that they will heavily rely on Kikis for that needed early advantage against Fnatic. Fnatic have the tendency to inconsistently lose grasp of their early advantage and if Unicorns of Love messed up Fnatic’s early game, they will have a higher chance of winning.

On the other hand, Fnatic’s surprising ban-pick phase has been one of their major strengths, incorporating different strategies and team composition for every situation. Unicorns of Love will have to ready themselves for an unexpected team composition from Fnatic and will have to immediately adjust their strategy if an occasion arises.

Although Fnatic will surely have the upper hand in this series, I am confident that the dark horse of the tournament that is Unicorns of Love will surely take the championship away from Fnatic.

Unicorns of Love for this one, 3 games to 2.
