Team Logo Splyce EU LCS 2017 Splyce vs. H2K Gaming Team Logo H2K Gaming EU LCS 2017

July 28th, 08:00 AM PST / 11:00 AM EST/ 17:00 CEST

Splyce have worked their way into a pretty confident position. In Group B they’re sitting in 3rd place and are a safe distance from dropping, having taken many more victories than the 4th placed team. H2k have taken a position at the top of group b though and they’ll be looking to solidify their position at the top of the ladder. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Friday, July 28th, to find out!

Team Logo Splyce EU LCS 2017Splyce – SPY have managed to get themselves into a pretty comfortable position on the ladder, sitting in 3rd and having taken as many victories as those top teams. They’re tied for 2nd and 1st place on the ladder and they’ve shown quick adaptions and improvements in recent weeks. With improving strength and consistency they’re definitely going to put up a fight.

Team Logo H2K Gaming EU LCS 2017H2k – H2k have found themselves in 1st place in Group b. They’ve taken the top position in their EU LCS group but now they’ve got to defend it. 2 teams are sitting in a tied position with H2k and they’re going to need to find a way to beat them if they want to retain their top position. They’ve taken the least losses in their group and will be aiming to keep it that way.

H2k appear to be at an advantage here, they’ve taken fewer individual game losses and they’ve also taken quite a few additional victories. They’ve been putting up more of a fight in their games and have shown slightly more strength than SPY in a more consistent manner.  Splyce are going to need to make strong composition changes and adaptions throughout the series, they’ve shown a lot of similar strengths as H2k but will need to find extra if they want to climb on top of the series.

Prediction: H2k Victory. H2k have been the more consistent of the 2 performing teams, they’ve found more convincing victories for the entirety of the summer split and I think they’ve got more potential. H2k have shown slightly more strength and I think the difference is going to shine through, giving H2k the advantage they need to take the victory.

Misfits vs. Fnatic EU LCS 2017 Summer Split Week 8

July 28th, 11:00 AM PST / 02:00 PM EST/ 20:00 CEST

Misfits have lost their stride slightly; they were previously sitting in 2nd place in their group and were looking to contest the top position. Now they’ll be looking to contest the 2nd place once the split comes to an end but most importantly they’re looking for a playoffs position. Fnatic have taken the top position in their group and will be looking to solidify it. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Friday, July 28th, to find out!

Misfits EU LCS 2017 Team LogoMisfits – MSF are in a pretty comfortable 3rd place, as long as they can put on consistent performances they’ll be able to maintain their position in group A. If MSF want to look for more though they’re going to need to make improvements to their middle game decision making and their overall macro management.

Team Logo Fnatic EU LCS 2017Fnatic – Fnatic were picked apart during the Rift Rivals tournament and they definitely took notes, they’ve put on more reliable performances recently and have adapted to the meta-game more. They’ve picking less niche champions and are working to improve their more cohesive compositions; this has helped them improve their macro management a lot.

Fnatic have definitely taken an advantageous position for this series, they’ve shown much more strength throughout the entirety of the summer split and have put on significantly stronger performances. They’ve taken the top position in their group simply being outperforming the other competing teams, now that they’ve made some adaptions they’re only going to be more difficult to overcome. MSF are going to need to impact the earlier stages of the game and will need to increase vision drastically around the middle stages of the game if they want to survive. They could take a strong lead if they’re able to rotate quickly and manipulate minion waves during the later stages of the game, Fnatic have shown more weakness when it comes to controlling those pushing lanes.

Prediction: Fnatic Victory. Fnatic have put on stronger and more consistent performances, they’ve even made improvements to stay on the top of the ladder. They were already one of the more difficult teams to overcome and now they’re solidifying their macro management it’s only going to be more difficult. I think their resilience and strengths will show during this series as FNC take another victory.

EU LCS Summer Split 2017 – Week 8 | Day 3

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

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

Ninjas in Pyjamas have shown some relevant adaptions to the current League of Legends patch and they’ve certainly made improvements but it’s all a little too late for them now. They’re sitting at the bottom of their group and will be looking to learn more before heading into the promotion tournament. Roccat are still looking to make a small push though. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Saturday, July 29th, to find out!

Ninjas in Pyjamas EU LCS 2017 Team LogoNinjas in Pyjamas – NiP have had little impact so far this summer split, they’ve made short and small improvements but have never done enough to push past the other competing teams. NiP need to make as many improvements as they can before they head into the promotion tournament so they’re going to want to put on their learning caps for the next few weeks, just to gain that small edge.

Team Logo ROCCAT EU LCS 2017Roccat – ROC are currently sitting in 4th place in Group A. They’ve been able to impact the summer split quite a bit and are still making those small improvements to combust in the few remaining weeks. They’ve been able to withstand significant amounts of pressure from top competing teams but have been unable to push ahead; maybe they’ll come to surprise us as the summer split closes out.

Roccat look to be at an advantage here, they’ve take significantly more individual game and series victories. They’ve shown more mastery when it comes to strategies along with executing them. Ninjas in Pyjamas have made improvements but so have ROC. Roccat have been keeping up with a lot of the other competing teams whereas NiP found themselves at the bottom of the ladder and have been stuck there. NiP are going to need to impact the earlier stages of the game if they want to find a way on top of the series, ROC have a harder time coming back from a deficit in comparison to some of the other competing teams and if NiP can get an early lead they’ll gain significant amounts of control over the games.

Prediction: Roccat Victory. ROC have shown more strength throughout the entirety of the Summer Split and have made steady improvements to hold onto their position in their group. They’ve taken a much stronger stand than Ninjas in Pyjamas and I think their additional strengths are going to shine through in this series, leading ROC to victory.

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

The Unicorns of Love are sitting tied for the top position in Group B. They’ve taken the same amount of series victories as both H2k and Splyce, but they’ve also taken the most individual game victories out of all competing teams in their group. Mysterious Monkeys are sitting at the bottom of their group and they’ve run out of time. With the Summer Split coming to an end will UoL be able to claim 1st place? Tune into the series when it goes live on Saturday, July 29th, to find out!

Team Logo Unicorns of Love EU LCS 2017Unicorns of Love – UoL have taken the most individual game victories out of all competing teams in their group, they’ve shown a significant amount of strength and resilience for the entirety of the Summer Split and now it’s coming to a close. They’re going to need to find the strength for one last push if they want to take that top position in their group.

Mysterious Monkeys EU LCS 2017 Team LogoMysterious Monkeys – MM are sitting at the bottom of Group B in the EU LCS and have little hope of getting away from the promotion tournament. They’ll be looking to make the necessary improvements now to fight their way back into the LCS to compete next split; there are a lot of promising teams that will challenge them. Can they come out on top?

Unicorns of Love appear to be at a significant advantage here; they’ve taken a top position in their group and have put on the strongest individual games. They’ve taken the most individual game victories and have been adapting to the latest League of Legends patch very quickly. They’ve been ahead of a lot of the other competing teams for quite a while and they’ll be looking to push for 1st over the short weeks remaining in the Summer Split. MM will want to increase vision control in the earlier and middle stages of the game; they’re going to want to avoid unnecessary fighting around the middle stages of the game and will need to build a strong composition to work around UoL.

Prediction: Unicorns of Love Victory. The Unicorns of Love have taken a top position in their group and they’ve shown a phenomenal amount of strength. They’ve already made some quick adaptions to the latest League of Legends patch and are looking to push forward for 1st place in their group. With the amount of strength they’ve shown, in comparison to MM, I think they could find a fairly confident way on top of the series.

July 27th, 08:00 AM PST / 11:00 AM EST/ 17:00 CEST

Mysterious Monkeys are currently at the bottom of Group B in the European LCS; they’ve taken a few victories but have yet to really prove their strength. Team Vitality are only a single position ahead of MM on the ladder but have managed to have more success over the course of the summer split, heading into this half things could be getting close. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Thursday, July 27th, to find out!

Mysterious Monkeys EU LCS 2017 Team LogoMysterious Monkeys – MM are still struggling at the bottom of their group, they’ve not been able to find much success but they are slowly becoming more challenging to conquer. They’ve made some successful improvements and will be looking to push forward during this half of the summer split.

Team Logo Vitality EU LCS 2017Team Vitality – VIT are currently in 4th place in Group B, they’ve found more success than MM during the 1st half of the split but their position on the ladder is a dangerous one, they’re going to need to put on some strong performances if they want to maintain their place.

Team Vitality look to be at a minor advantage here, they’ve taken more series victories and have had much stronger overall performances so far this summer split. They’ve taken double the amount of individual game victories and have shown some additional improvements in the most recent weeks. Mysterious Monkeys are going to need to perform more consistently; they’ve shown a few strengths that could help them in each individual game in the series.  They’ve going to need to improve vision control around the middle stages of the game if they want to keep up.

Prediction: Team Vitality Victory. VIT have already found more success so far this summer split, they’ve taken more series victories and have taken double when comparing individual game victories. Because of their more proven strength I think they’ll find an available position on top of the series.

G2 Esports vs. Ninjas in Pyjamas EU LCS 2017 Summer Split Week 8
Team Logo G2 Esports EU LCS 2017 G2 Esports vs. Ninjas in Pyjamas Ninjas in PyjamasMysterious Monkeys EU LCS 2017 Team Logo

July 27th, 11:00 AM PST / 02:00 PM EST/ 20:00 CEST

G2 Esports have found some strength in their most recent competitive weeks. They’ve taken 2nd place in their group, Group A in the European LCS, whilst putting on some extremely strong performances. Ninjas in Pyjamas are currently sitting at the bottom of the Group A ladder and they’re struggling. Will they surprise us here? Tune into the series when it goes live on Thursday, July 27th, to find out!

Team Logo G2 Esports EU LCS 2017G2 Esports – G2 have made some noticeable improvements in their most recent weeks. They’ve become a team that’s challenging top teams instead of cruising around the middle of the pack. They’ve taken their macro management and made huge improvements whilst also making meta-game adaptions, this could give them an edge.

Ninjas in Pyjamas EU LCS 2017 Team LogoNinjas in Pyjamas – NiP are barely competing at the moment, they’ve found their way to the bottom of the ladder and they’re only holding onto 2 individual game victories. They’ve made some improvements of their own and are putting up more of a fight but they’re going to need to exceed their current limits here.

G2 Esports look to be in an advantageous position; they’ve taken significantly more series victories and have had a much larger impact over the course of the Summer Split so far. They’ve made extremely noticeable improvements and are now competing at a top level. Ninjas in Pyjamas quite heavily contrast G2 Esports but we’ve seen bigger underdogs take games in this situation. If NiP can get some form of vision control maintained through the middle stages of the game they should be able to keep up in terms of macro movements, it could also open up engagement opportunities for them.

Prediction: G2 Esports Victory. G2 Esports have already had a significant impact on the EU LCS ladder; they’ve done this with vast improvements, consistent strength, and great execution. I think with their increase in consistency and improved decision making they’ll find a fairly confident victory here.
