FNATIC

Summer Split record: 18-0
Current championship points: 90
Minimum number of points in Summer Playoffs: 40

Logo of LCS EU Team FnaticWith their previous Summer Split record of 18 wins and not a single loss, Fnatic became the first team in the history of EU LCS to finish a split undefeated, outperforming top-tier teams such as Unicorns of Love, H2k Gaming, and Origen. As a result of their 1st place finish in the regular season of the 2015 EU LCS Summer Split, they will automatically move on to the semi-finals of the Summer Playoffs and will face the winner of the Unicorns of Love vs. Roccat series. Fnatic is clearly the top favorite for winning this year’s Summer Playoffs and the hottest EU contender in the 2015 World Championship. Even if they would lose both the semi-finals and the match for 3rd place they would have 130 Championship points (90 from the Spring Playoffs + 40 from placing 4th) which would guarantee them a spot in the EU Regionals if not the 2nd Worlds seed directly.

Current Roster Fnatic:

  • Top Lane: Heo “Huni” Heung-hoon
  • Jungle: Kim “Reignover” Yeu-jin
  • Mid Lane: Fabian “Febiven” Diepstraten
  • ADC: Martin “Rekkles” Larsson
  • Support: Bora “YellOwStaR” Kim

Coach: Oliver “IzpAH” Steer

Subs:

  • Sub Top Lane: Bor “Kektz” Jersan

ORIGEN

Summer Split record: 12-6
Current championship points: 0
Minimum number of points in Summer Playoffs: 40

Origen - LCS Team LogoThis summer is the debut season of the newly-formed team Origen in the EU LCS. Home of legendary and former Fnatic-members xPeke, Cyanide and sOAZ,  Origen coursed their way through the Challenger Series, winning it all and qualifying for the 2015 EU LCS Summer Split, After a second place finish this Summer Split, Origen secured a bye into the semi-finals of the Summer Playoffs and will face the winner of the H2k-Giants Gaming matchup. As the team was not playing in the Spring Split, Fnatic is starting into the Summer Playoffs with zero Championship points. But the bye to the semi-finals guarantees them at least 40 Points which puts them ahead of SK Gaming, Copenhagen Wolves and Gambit Gaming who all have less Championship Points for their results in the Spring Playoffs but failed to qualify for the Summer Playoffs. This means Origen will at least enter the EU Regionals if they fail to qualify for the LoL World Championship during the Season 5 EU Summer Playoffs directly.

Current Roster Origen:

  • Top Lane: Paul “sOAZ” Boyer
  • Jungle: Maurine “Amazing” Stuckenschneider
  • Mid Lane: Enrique “xPeke” Cedeño Martinez
  • ADC: Jesper “Niels” Svenningsen
  • Support: Alfonso “mithy” Aguirre Rodriguez

Coach: Titus “Ducky” Hafner

Subs:

H2K Gaming - LCS EU Team LogoThe history of H2k goes way back to the 2015 Expansion Tournament where then roster of Cloud9 Eclipse defeated Giants Gaming to clinch a spot in the 2015 EU LCS Spring Split. Before the start of the split the team rebranded to H2K. After their successful debut in the regular season of the spring split and a 3rd place finish in the Spring Playoffs as well as the regular season of the Summer Split, they have established themselves as one of the strongest teams in Europe. This coming Summer Playoffs, they will face Giants Gaming in the quarterfinals. If H2K gets eliminated in the quarter-finals they will have 70 Championship points which should gurantee them a spot in the EU Regionals.

Current Roster H2K:

  • Top lane: Andrei “Odoamne” Pascu
  • Jungle: Jean-Victor “loulex” Burgevin
  • Mid lane: Yoo “Ryu” Sang-ook

UNICORNS OF LOVE

Summer Split record: 9-9
Current championship points: 70
Minimum number of points in Summer Playoffs: 20

Logo of LCS EU Team Unicorns of LoveUnicorns of Love became the first team in EU LCS history to defeat the #1 seed in the playoffs by defeating SK Gaming in the semifinals of the 2015 EU Spring Playoffs. Coming into this year’s Summer Split, they were one of the most-hyped teams to win it all but personal issues and roster changes (Kikis left before week 8 of the summer split) plagued befall upon them, affecting their performance. Although they managed to secure a slot this coming Summer Playoffs, they will have to defeat Roccat in the quarterfinals to further advance to the tournament. The Unicorn’s head to head record against Roocat is 1-1 but UOL is best when it comes to best of 3 or best of 5 series. But even if they are elminated in the Quarter-Finals the Unicorns will get a second chance to qualify for Worlds in the EU Regioals.

Current Roster Unicorns of Love:

  • Top lane: Kiss “Vizicsacsi” Tamas
  • Jungle:  it appears Gilius is not going play – Starting Jungler most likely: H0R0
  • Mid lane: Tristan “PowerOfEvil” Schrage
  • ADC: Pontus “Vardags” Dahlblom
  • Support: Zdravets “Hylissang” Galabov

Coach: Fabian “MasterOfSheepy” Mallant

ROCCAT

Summer Split record: 9-10 (inlcuding tiebreaker game)
Current championship points: 0
Minimum number of points in Summer Playoffs: 20

Logo of LCS EU Team RoccatRoccat were relegated into the 2015 Summer Promotion Tournament after their sub-par performance in the last Spring Split. Their demise continued through the first few weeks of the Summer Split, but they were able to resurge back into the standings just in time for the EU Summer Playoffs, even defeating Giants Gaming in a tiebreaker for 5th place. With their new found hope and confidence, they will start the Summer Playoffs by facing Unicorns of Love in the quarterfinals. Their head to head record is 1-1 but Roccat needs to win the quarter-finals if they want to keep their hopes of going to the World Championship alive.

Current Roster Team ROCCAT:

  • Top lane: Etienne “Steve” Michels
  • Jungle: Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski
  • Mid lane: Erlend “Nukeduck” Vatevik Holm
  • ADC: Rasmus “MrRalleZ” Skinneholm
  • Support: Oskar “Vander” Bogdan

Coach: Jakob “YamatoCannon” Mebdi

GIANTS GAMING

Summer Split record: 8-11
Current championship points: 0
Minimum number of points in Summer Playoffs: 20

Giants - EU LCS Team LogoThe last and definitely not the least team to secure a playoff berth, Giants Gaming had found success this Summer Split after their disappointing 9th place finish last Spring Split.. Their newfound support and shotcaller, GoDFRED, has tremendously helped the team especially within the first few weeks of the split, though they heavily declined towards the end. Nonetheless, their improvement and performance earned them a 6th place finish this Summer Split.  Giants will face H2k in the quarterfinals of the Summer Playoffs. The Giants lost the previous two encounters with H2K. The 20 Championship points from placing 5th/6th will not be enough to qualify for the EU Regionals so the Giants need to step up their game if they want a chance to go to Worlds 2015.

Current Roster Giants:

  • Top lane: Jorge “Werlyb” Casanovas
  • Jungle: Federico “Fr3deric” Lizondoa
  • Mid lane: Isaac “PePiiNeRo” Flores
  • ADC: Adrian “Adryh” Perez
  • Support: Oskar “GoDFRED” Lundstorm
