Week 5 – EU LCS Summer Split 2017

Week 5 of the European LCS is the last week before the half time break of the Season 7 Summer Split 2017 and will ensure more cross group action on Summoner’s Rift. Some teams are in dire need of this timeout, others have already cast a glance at this year’s League of Legends World Championship. Current Spring Split champion G2 Esports holds with two victories and three defeats a negative record for the first time ever since entering the EU LCS. A worrying for the seemingly best team in Europe if you keep in mind that the 2017 Rift Rivals tournament will start next week. In EU LCS Group B a three-way fight intensifies between the Unicorns of Love, H2K and Splyce. The Mysterious Monkeys and Team Vitality trail behind the top teams of the group and have to fight for pure survival in the LCS. The last LCS week before the break will start on June 29th so don’t miss turning in for more League of Legends action.

Team Logo ROCCAT EU LCS 2017 ROCCAT vs. Team Logo Vitality EU LCS 2017 Team Vitality

June 30th, 08:00 AM PST / 11:00 AM EST/ 17:00 CEST

Roccat are finding themselves falling into a lower position in their group, but they’re still pulling ahead of Team Vitality in terms of series victories and they’re vastly ahead in terms of individual game victories. They’ve taken a total of 7 individual game victories in comparison to VIT who’re sitting on only 3. Can VIT pick themselves up and defeat their opposing 4th placed team? Tune into the series when it goes live on Friday, June 30th, to find out!

Team Logo ROCCAT EU LCS 2017ROCCAT – ROC were able to take down Fnatic in a previous series performance which is extremely challenging, even if FNC were underperforming, so they’ve definitely got what it takes to take down a top team on a good day, but can they take down a fairly equal team consistently? They’re going to need to make some considerable adaptions if they want to have significant impact here.

Team Logo Vitality EU LCS 2017Team Vitality – VIT are falling behind in terms of victories, and that’s across the board. They’ve been unable to take down any of the 3 teams that are competing for a top position in Group B and they were only able to come out on top of a team that’s yet to take a single individual game. They’ve got a lot to prove, this series could be the perfect platform for them to strut their strategies.

Roccat appear to be at an advantage here, even if it’s not in such a significant way. They’ve taken significantly more individual game victories and that’s whilst also taking victories off of top performing teams. They’ve shown that they’re fairly consistent in their performances, even if their performances aren’t top tier. Team Vitality has been unable to put on as much of a show. They’ve taken 3 individual game victories but taking away their wins against the 0:10 team leaves them having had very little impact on their group’s ladder. They’re going to need to take a hold of their early game and reign with confidence if they want to come out on top here.

Prediction: Roccat Victory. Roccat have shown significantly more stability across their performances, the additional consistency and stretch in their strategies is going to have significant valuable reach during this series and I think it’s going to give them the leads they’ll need to find a way to come out on top.

Misfits vs. H2K Gaming EU LCS 2017 Summer Split Week 5
Team Logo Misfits EU LCS 2017 Misfits vs. Team Logo H2K Gaming EU LCS 2017 H2K Gaming

June 30th, 11:00 AM PST / 02:00 PM EST/ 20:00 CEST

Misfits are reaching for a top position in their group but their individual game performances are trailing behind Fnatic’s and a gap is slowly growing. Taking series victories is fantastic in terms of general ladder standings but being able to perform from one individual game to the next can greatly hinder their consistency, something that H2k will look to take advantage of as they’re looking to push into a top position in their own group. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Friday, June 30th, to find out!

Misfits EU LCS 2017 Team LogoMisfits – MSF are having a fairly good time in their group, they’ve managed to climb into 2nd place and have created a gap between themselves and G2 Esports. This gives them significantly more stability in their group and allows them some freedom on the ladder, but if they’re unable to perform in even individual game they could quickly find their statistics dropping.

Team Logo H2K Gaming EU LCS 2017H2k – H2k were previously looking to push for the top position on the Group B ladder but they were unable to achieve it, now they’ve fallen to 3rd place but a single series victory could push them into the top position. They’re in a bit of a power struggle to reach the top but if they can break it they’re going to have found new strength to pursue the playoffs once they arrive.

H2k look to be at an advantage here, even with slightly weaker overall numbers they’ve taken fewer individual game losses and more victories. They’re sitting with an equal amount of series victories whilst playing more games in total, this shows that they’re performing extremely consistently and will continuously be a difficult team to conquer. Misfits have shown that once they fail they can hit a free-fall. Misfits are going to need to add some additional adaptions to their strategies throughout the series and will need to pick up on what H2k do wrong throughout the individual games if they want to continue their pursuit of the top position in Group A.

Prediction: H2k Victory. H2k have shown that they’ve already got their consistency in order, one of the most challenging things for these other teams to do. Even with an entire additional series played they’ve taken fewer losses than Misfits. I think even if they’re performing on an equal level to MSF through the individual games they hold an advantage throughout the series that could find them taking the win.

EU LCS Summer Split 2017 – Week 5 | Day 3

Mysterious Monkeys vs. G2 Esports EU LCS 2017 Summer Split Week 5
Mysterious Monkeys EU LCS 2017 Team Logo Mysterious Monkeys vs. Team Logo G2 Esports EU LCS 2017 G2 Esports

July 1st, 08:00 AM PST / 11:00 AM EST/ 17:00 CEST

Mysterious Monkeys managed to finally take their 1st step forward and they did it with surprisingly strong performances. They were able to take a clean series off of Ninjas in Pyjamas, of the opposing EU LCS Group, and the strengths they had shown were definitive. G2 Esports have often put on stronger performances than MM but could this be the start of change? Tune into the series when it goes live on Saturday, July 1st, to find out!

Mysterious Monkeys EU LCS 2017 Team LogoMysterious Monkeys – MM were able to put on a set of phenomenal performances against NiP on Day 1 this week and they’ve set in stone their strengths over the official bottom placed team. They’re working their way up and improvements are on their way as this team looks to continue their climb.

Team Logo G2 Esports EU LCS 2017G2 Esports – G2 were previously the top performing team in the region but that’s no longer the case, they’re having a difficult time reaching for the top as a significant amount of teams in the EU LCS region are performing on a top level. They’ve been stuck in the middle of their group and climbing has been a challenge, this could be an opportunity for them to take another step forward.

G2 Esports look to be at an advantage here, they’ve had stronger performances across the board and they’re sitting in a much more reliable position on the ladder. With the additional confidence from the stability we’re likely to see conventional performances from G2, that’s both a strength and a weakness. G2 will be comfortable but predictable; MM can counter the usual strategies and look for advantages right from champion select. This could quickly put them into a strong position, but if they’re unable to capitalise on it quickly they could be in trouble.

Prediction: G2 Esports Victory. With more victories under their belt, in terms of both series and individual game wins, they’ve proven to have more reliable and consistent performances with more protruding strengths. Because of this I think they’ll find a fairly confident way on top of this series.

Ninjas in Pyjamas vs. Unicorns of Love EU LCS 2017 Summer Split Week 5
Ninjas in PyjamasMysterious Monkeys EU LCS 2017 Team Logo Ninjas in Pyjamas vs. Team Logo Unicorns of Love EU LCS 2017 Unicorns of Love

July 1st, 11:00 AM PST / 02:00 PM EST/ 20:00 CEST

Ninjas in Pyjamas have just officially hit rock bottom in the EU LCS, they were a 0 victory team in terms of both individual games and series wins. They were pitted against a team in the exact same situation and they were unable to contest the series, losing it quickly. This has definitely slowed them down but there are still many weeks left to look for a more stable position on the ladder. UoL definitely won’t make it easy though. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Saturday, July 1st, to find out!

Ninjas in Pyjamas EU LCS 2017 Team LogoNinjas in Pyjamas – NiP are now at the bottom, they’ve got no victories under their belt and they’ve faced the majority of competing EU LCS teams. They’re yet to show off much potential and they’ve not had much of an opportunity to show their strengths and as the weeks progress they’re only going to have a more difficult time.

Team Logo Unicorns of Love EU LCS 2017Unicorns of Love – UoL are in the top position in their group but a single mistake could see them losing it. They’re going to need to make sure not to get too overconfident during this series because we’ve already witnessed the negative outcomes it can bring. They’re going to need to stick to their gameplay and play with confidence without pushing too far or taking too many risks.

Unicorns of Love are at a very clear advantage here, they’ve taken significantly more victories in terms of individual games and series wins. They’ve been able to show off a lot of their strengths and their weaknesses are yet to beam, meaning they’ve been a challenge for many teams to overcome. Ninjas in Pyjamas are going to have an exceedingly difficult time during this series and because they’re yet to show their strengths and their weaknesses have been exploited repeatedly. They’re going to need to find streaks of advantageous opportunities if they want a chance.

Prediction: Unicorns of Love Victory. Unicorns of Love are in a significantly more stable position and have been able to show a boundless amount of strength in comparison to NiP. If NiP were going to take a victory it would have been against MM or a generally lower placed team on the ladder, their chances against UoL seem infinitely smaller so I’m confident UoL will rise to the top of this series.

Ninjas in PyjamasMysterious Monkeys EU LCS 2017 Team Logo Ninjas in Pyjamas vs. Mysterious Monkeys EU LCS 2017 Team Logo Mysterious Monkeys

June 29th, 08:00 AM PST / 11:00 AM EST/ 17:00 CEST

Ninjas in Pyjamas are still very much in a troubled position but it’s the exact same position that Mysterious Monkeys are in. Both teams are sitting at the bottom of their groups with no victories, at all. Neither team has managed to claw their way on top of a series or even an individual game, so this series could be a huge step forward for one of these teams, but only one of them can come out on top! Who will it be? Tune into the series when it goes live on Thursday, June 29th, to find out!

Ninjas in Pyjamas EU LCS 2017 Team LogoNinjas In Pyjamas – NiP have definitely had a rough time so far this split, that’s heavily reflected by their statistics and their performances. They’re sitting at the bottom of their group and haven’t been able to claw a single individual game victory, but this is their chance to shine. This opportunity could give them exactly what they need to finally progress.

Mysterious Monkeys EU LCS 2017 Team LogoMysterious Monkeys – MM are trouble, their performances have reflected their position as a bottom placed team and even though they’ve shown a few strengths their weaknesses have definitely shined more. They’re looking for a way to step forward and this series against NiP presents a fantastic opportunity for them to do so.

It’s hard to come to a conclusion as to what team should be considered at an advantage here, but looking over the separated group strengths it would appear that NiP have had a considerably harder time in their group. Group A have strengths spread throughout all 4 of the position above NiP with a few commanding teams at the top whereas Group B have 3 teams in the lead with an additional one slowly pacing behind, which is then followed by MM. This indicates that NiP have had a tougher run through their group and with some of the strengths they’ve shown in their performances they might be able to shine in this series. MM aren’t going to make it easy though, with a few strengths of their own I expect them to put on a thrilling series, with additional ward coverage and patience they might find their own way on top.

Prediction: Ninjas In Pyjamas Victory. Ninjas In Pyjamas have been fairly progressive, they’re yet to obtain a single victory but the same can be said for MM. With NiP having an objectively more difficult group and still being able to show strengths I think they’re more likely to find a way to thrive during this series to come out on top.

Fnatic vs. Splyce EU LCS 2017 Summer Split Week 5
Team Logo Fnatic EU LCS 2017 Fnatic vs. Team Logo Splyce EU LCS 2017 Splyce

June 29th, 11:00 AM PST / 02:00 PM EST/ 20:00 CEST

Fnatic are being called the top team to beat in the region at the moment and for good reason, they’ve shown multiple great strategies and have pulled ahead of the other competitors in their group. They’re being followed by some fantastic statistics and that’s surely striking fear into Splyce. Splyce have put on some phenomenal performances of their own though, working their way into a higher position in their own group and being lined up to contest a top position. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Thursday, June 29th, to find out!

Team Logo Fnatic EU LCS 2017Fnatic – FNC are being looked over with fear, their formidable team fighting alongside their great macro management has given them leads against some extremely difficult opponents. They’re still improving though, their overconfidence has cost them before and if they overstep they’re just going to cause more issues.

Team Logo Splyce EU LCS 2017Splyce – SPY have put on some extremely strong performances and are in a top position in their group, they’ve proven themselves against top teams in the region and are looking to pushing into the top position in their group through this series. It’s looking challenging, but they’ve certainly shown the potential for it.

Fnatic look to be at an advantage here, but it doesn’t look to be in a major way. They’ve shown a stronger use of map and vision control which has led to them having more developed macro management, their team fighting has been tidy and when in combination with their other controlling aspects they’re often at an advantage, if Splyce can work their way around the map and build more controlling vision of their own they’ll avoid fighting at a disadvantage and could lead to them developing their own map control significantly. I expect this to be a very macro based series, plenty of movement around the map and definitive control of objectives.

Prediction: Fnatic Victory. Fnatic have shown that when they’re playing, whilst avoiding overconfidence, they’re able to come out on top of the best teams in the region. They’ve already improved by leaps and bounds and are likely to keep pushing this. I think with their superior combination of control and well assessed team fighting that they’ll come out on top of the series.
