Week 9 – EU LCS Summer Split 2017

While the North American LCS is already celebrating the last week of the regular Summer Split 2017 the European challengers will still have two more weeks to go and Week 9 of the EU LCS Summer Split could easily seal the deal for some teams and consolidate their seeds for the upcoming playoff games. The level of gameplay in the European LCS did definitely rise this season, it will be hard for the reigning champions of G2 Esports to defend their title with strong contenders like Fnatic or H2K Gaming. If you take a look at the current standings of the EU LCS groups you will see that the Summer Split playoff seeds of Group A are almost carved in stone with Fnatic taking the bye and starting directly in the semi-finals. EU LCS Group B will feature a very exciting duel between the Unicorns of Love and H2K for the first seed with Splyce being the dark horse of the group. The European region has to settle old scores after the embarassing performances at this year’s Rift Rivals tournament – therefore all teams have to step up at the 2017 League of Legends World Championship to appease their fans. Furthermore you can watch former League of Legends pro-players like xPeke, HotShotGG or Misaya at this year’s Return of the Legends tournament which is simultaneous to the LCS Week 9. The EU LCS Summer Split Week 9 will start on August 3rd with more exciting duels so don’t miss turning in for further League of Legends action!

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

August 5th, 08:00 AM PST / 11:00 AM EST/ 17:00 CEST

Misfits are in a safe position but a few small mistakes and that could quickly change. They’re going to need to maintain steady and strong performances for the few remaining competitive games they have left. Ninjas in Pyjamas are sitting at the bottom of the ladder with a single series victory, with very little time left they’ll look to make some form of impact. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Saturday, August 5th, to find out!

Ninjas in Pyjamas EU LCS 2017 Team LogoNinjas in Pyjamas – NiP have had little impact in the Summer Split so far and they’ve sunk to the bottom of their group. They’ve been the weakest performing team in the region and there’s very little time for them to have some form of impact. With very little risk left in terms of changing their ladder position they could look to make some risky plays.

Misfits EU LCS 2017 Team LogoMisfits – MSF are sitting in 3rd place in their group and have had quite an impact this split. During the first half of the summer split they spent a while making a significant push to the top of the ladder but that was eventually halted. They’ll be looking to perform consistently to hold onto their position on the ladder.

Misfits look to be at a certain advantage here; they’ve had significantly stronger performances over the course of the Summer Split and have shown much more reliability in their early and middle game. Ninjas in Pyjamas are going to need to find a way into a controlling position around the middle stages of the game, they can do this by creating superior lines of vision around the middle lane where the team fights are most likely to start, this could give them advantageous positioning.

Prediction: Misfits Victory. MSF have managed to find a way into a safe position on the ladder and I don’t think they’re going to take many risks trying to make a final push. I think they’re going to continue their strong and consistent performances to find a way on top of the series.

Unicorns of Love vs. Splyce EU LCS 2017 Summer Split Week 9
Team Logo Unicorns of Love EU LCS 2017 Unicorns of Love vs. Splyce Team Logo Splyce EU LCS 2017

August 5th, 11:00 AM PST / 02:00 PM EST/ 20:00 CEST

Unicorns of Love are sitting in 2nd place on the ladder and are extremely close to both the team above them along with the team below them. A single series victory could push them forward but a single mistake could quickly have them plummeting. Splyce will be looking to claw ahead of the Unicorns of love here; they’re also in a position where they could push for the top. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Saturday, August 5th, to find out!

Team Logo Unicorns of Love EU LCS 2017Unicorns of Love – Unicorns of Love have had the greatest stretch in strength. They’ve maintained their composure through difficult times and have managed to find their way on top of some very difficult situations. If they’re looking for that top place in their group they’re going to need to really step up.

Team Logo Splyce EU LCS 2017Splyce – SPY is sitting barely below UoL on the ladder and only has a single additional series loss. They’ve managed to take the same amount of series victories but also have a history of underperforming when things get tough. They’re going to need to try and find more advantageous situations if they want to push forward.

Unicorns of Love are at a minor advantage here. They’ve taken the same amount of series victories as Splyce but they’ve also had stronger overall performances, having taken more individual game victories and fewer series losses. Unicorns of Love have shown phenomenal strength around the middle stages of the game, their team fighting is extremely difficult to avoid so SPY are going to need to try and create forms of mid control or rotate around the map to apply more global pressure.

Prediction: Unicorns of Love Victory. UoL have had a slightly stronger impact over the course of the Summer Split and I think their minor additional strengths will shine through during this series. Having stronger individual game performances, I think Unicorns of Love are going to work through the series for the win.

Mysterious Monkeys vs. Splyce EU LCS 2017 Summer Split Week 9
Mysterious Monkeys EU LCS 2017 Team Logo Mysterious Monkeys vs. Splyce Team Logo Splyce EU LCS 2017

August 3rd, 08:00 AM PST / 11:00 AM EST/ 17:00 CEST

Mysterious Monkeys were able to put up a strong fight when they were facing off against the Unicorns of Love and their improvements are noticeable. It’s definitely a little late seeing as there are only a few weeks of the Summer Split left but MM won’t be going down easily. Splyce are currently in 3rd and are only a few strong performances from contesting a higher position. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Thursday, August 3rd, to find out!

Mysterious Monkeys EU LCS 2017 Team LogoMysterious Monkeys – MM are currently in 5thh place in group B and have been unable to put up much of a fight for the majority of the summer split. They’ve taken a few victories but they’ve fallen a little short for time, with less to lose I think a confident MM could be dangerous.

Team Logo Splyce EU LCS 2017Splyce – SPY is currently in 3rd place in group B and has just fallen from a stronger standing. They were unable to take down H2k and had a relatively weak performance against them. They’ve only got a little bit of time left but with a little luck they could still push for more.

Splyce look to be in an advantageous position here, they’ve taken many more series victories and have had a much stronger overall impact for the entirety of the summer split. Splyce have been contesting games against the stronger teams in the region and have been able to push for a much more impactful position on the ladder. MM are going to need to handle this series with care, they’ve shown improvements and if they can maintain their composure and confident they could find a few key opportunities to push.

Prediction: Splyce Victory. SPY have been a stronger performing team for the entirety of the Summer Split, they’ve shown more reliable performances and have had more confidence to carry them through difficult times. With their proven greater strength I think they’ll find a fairly comfortable way on top of this series.

G2 Esports vs. Misfits EU LCS 2017 Summer Split Week 9

August 3rd, 11:00 AM PST / 02:00 PM EST/ 20:00 CEST

G2 Esports have fallen short when it came to their push to the top of the group but they’ve had a significant impact in the most recent weeks. They had a fairly rough start to the split but have come back to life after the Rift Rivals tournament. Misfits were able to push G2 to their limits before, can they do it again? Tune into the series when I goes live on Thursday, August 3rd, to find out!

Team Logo G2 Esports EU LCS 2017G2 Esports – G2 have been showing improvements at a steady rate, they had a burst of success and have been a stronger performing team since their increased confidence. They’ve been performing like a top team once again and are going to be difficult to take down; with increased reliability in the earlier stages their late game is thriving more.

Misfits EU LCS 2017 Team LogoMisfits – MSF were previously in a stronger position on the ladder but have been unable to adapt as quickly as a few of the other performing teams. They lost their place to G2 Esports and will be looking for a little revenge here. With Roccat on their trail they’re going to need to push forward.

G2 Esports look to be in an advantageous position here. They’ve had stronger performances in their most recent competitive games and have had such a successful push back up the ladder. They’ve made improvements to their earlier weaknesses and have made improved their decision-making and macro management significantly. Misfits are going to need to be quick in their feet here, they’re going to need to adapt to G2 and will need to react quickly. If they can get a tempo lead on G2 they could find a way to control the pace of the game.

Prediction: G2 Esports Victory.  G2 Esports have made some significant improvements since the start of the Summer Split and their changes are clearly noticeable. They’ve put on some fantastic performances recently and have become much more consistent. I think with how reliable and consistent they have been in their recent games they’ll find a way on top of the series.

August 4th, 08:00 AM PST / 11:00 AM EST/ 17:00 CEST

H2k have pushed their way to the top of group B in the EU LCS, they’re tied in terms of series victories but have taken the least losses in their group for the entirety of the Summer Split. With such a strong position they’ll be looking to solidify it, VIT will be looking for a little bit more. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Friday, August 4th, to find out!

Team Logo H2K Gaming EU LCS 2017H2k – H2k have climbed to the top position in their group but it’s being closely watched by the Unicorns of Love. H2k will need to be playing at a confident pace if they want to keep holding onto their place on the ladder. They’ve had strong and consistent performances for the majority of the Summer Split, if they can keep it up they’ll be looking at ending in 1st.

Team Logo Vitality EU LCS 2017Team Vitality – VIT are currently in 4th place in Group B and are sitting there with relative safety, they’re also quite a distance from contesting 3rd place. They’re in a bit of a heated position but if they can hold onto it they should be okay. It could prove challenging so they’re going to need to hold tight for the next few weeks.

H2k look to be at quite an advantage here. They’ve taken significantly more series victories over the course of the summer split and have taken half of the individual game losses. VIT have shown some strength in their macro management and they’ve even been able to adapt to other teams and strategies quite nicely but they might find it difficult to keep up with the top performing team in their group. VIT are going to want to play quickly around the middle stages of the game, a tempo lead could quickly open up opportunities for them and it also gives them an edge when it comes to preparing objectives and controlling vision.

Prediction: H2k Victory. H2k have taken a top position in their group and have even conquered some difficult times. They’ve shown phenomenal consistency and have lost very few games so far this split. Because of how stronger their overall performances have been tied in with their consistency I think they’ll find a way on top of this series.

Fnatic vs. ROCCAT EU LCS 2017 Summer Split Week 9
Team Logo Fnatic EU LCS 2017 Fnatic vs. ROCCAT Team Logo ROCCAT EU LCS 2017

August 4th, 11:00 AM PST / 02:00 PM EST/ 20:00 CEST

Fnatic are currently the strongest performing team in the region, they’ve taken the most series victories with every team included and they’ve put on some of the most dominating performances of the split. Roccat are pining over 3rd place but will be looking to solidify their position on the ladder, in 4th. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Friday, July 4th, to find out!

Team Logo Fnatic EU LCS 2017Fnatic – FNC are currently at the top of their group and the top of the EU LCS. With only a few weeks to go it doesn’t look like other teams are going to be able to catch up to FNC, is this first place? We’ll have to wait and see how they perform over the next few weeks but if they’re staying consistent they’re going to be challenging.

Team Logo ROCCAT EU LCS 2017Roccat – ROC are currently in 4th place in their group and they’ve shown some strengths throughout the summer split. They can be a challenging team to take down and they’re well up to date with the meta-game. But can their strengths shine when pitted against the likes of Fnatic?

Fnatic look to be in an advantageous position here, they’ve taken more series victories over the course of the summer split and they’ve had significantly more impact. They’ve managed to take the top position on the ladder whilst showing 2 fairly diffierent styles of gameplay. They’ve shown extremely early aggression and economic tactics as well as more adapting and precise decision making when controlling the map. Roccat are going to be having a difficult time during this series but with a few of their strengths they could find a way to hold FNC back. Some early strength will beam if they’re playing with confidence.

Prediction: Fnatic Victory. FNC have been the stronger performing of the 2 competing teams and they’ve proven that strength time and time again. They’re at the top of the ladder and have rarely slipped up, i think their consistency and strength will give them what they need to take this series.
