The first week of the EU LCS Summer Split 2018 has already provided unforgettable moments and the upcoming Week 2 of the just launched split will also spoil us with unbelievable team comps, head-shaking fights and a lot of tactical refinement on Summoner's Rift. What do you guys want? Taliyah as the strongest jungler? Mages like Brand, Vladimir or Ryze in the AD carry position? Taric in the midlane freezing the lane for Master Yi in the jungle? There are no limits to the wealth of ideas at the moment, the rigid meta-game has been broken up and it almost reminds us of the first League of Legends season, in which a lot of experimentation and testing took place. In the European LCS, Team Vitality, Misfits Gaming and G2 Esports each have two victories at the top of the standings after the first week of play. While the two first-mentioned teams have always been considered innovative, the G2 Esports players have adapted their strategies more slowly than their rivals in the past and often got off to a slower start – a weakness they seemingly managed to overcome. Week 2 of the EU LCS Summer Split starts on June 22nd at 6:00 PM CEST with the duel of the Unicorns of Love and Giants Gaming. Don't forget to open your live stream in time when the creative geniuses of the European LoL league suprise again with unconventional tactics and take a look at the full schedule of the European LCS!

Schedule and Results – 2018 LCS EU Summer Split Week 2

The unconventional meta-game makes it difficult to identify real favourites for the summer season, as the best-of-1 mode of the western LCS leagues offers plenty of room for surprises. Nevertheless, the duels between G2 Esports and FC Schalke 04 and the match between Team Vitality and Fnatic are probably the delicacies of the round. The Splyce team still falls due results after a strong spring season but with the Misfits an unpleasant opponent is waiting for them on Summoner's Rift.

EU LCS Summer 2018 Week 2 ROC vs S04

Match #1: ROCCAT League of Legends LoL Team Logo ROCCAT vs. Schalke 04 FC Schalke 04 League of Legends LoL Team Logo

June 23rd, 09:00 AM PT / 12:00 PM ET / 18:00 CEST

Prediction: Team ROCCAT and the FC Schalke 04 will start the second matchday in Week 2 of the EU LCS and both teams are separated in the standings by only one victory after three consecutive matches. While the FC Schalke 04 had to compete against some European favourites like G2 Esports and Fnatic, Team ROCCAT had a slightly easier schedule in their first games of the 2018 Summer Split. Therefore I expect in the first match of the day a narrow 0-1 victory for the FC Schalke 04.

Who is going to win?

EU LCS Summer 2018 Week 2 GIA vs MSF

Match #2: Giants League of Legends LoL Team Logo Giants Gaming vs. Misfits Misfits League of Legends LoL Team Logo

June 23rd, 10:00 AM PT / 01:00 PM ET / 19:00 CEST

With three consecutive victories out of their first three duels the Misfits – together with G2 Esports – can be found at the top of the EU LCS table and the crazy meta game in patch 8.11 seems to be made for this young and dynamic team. In the past the Misfits were among those teams that adapted new strategies faster than other opponents – mostly innovated by the solo queue community – and were thus able to achieve easy victories on Summoner's Rift. Coach Hussain “Moose” Moosvi is also one of the more creative minds of the EU LCS and gives his protégés the opportunity to test new team compositions on the big LCS stage. Only the currently popular hyper-carry strategies with Kaisa or Karthus in the midlane seem to be no option for the Misfits team as their star players are definitely to be found in bot- and toplane. However, other teams have already exchanged midlaner and AD-Carry and Hans Sama could almost single-handedly carry his team mates to victory with Kaisa in the midlane supported by Sencux as Lulu. The Giants, on the other hand, started the season off strong with a win over H2K but they suffered two bitter defeats against Team Vitality and the Unicorns of Love. Especially their fiddlesticks support strategy does not seem to bear any fruit and a possible strategy with Taliyah in the jungle was unfortunately deactivated and forbidden by Riot Games because of some in-game bugs. In this duel Alphari and his team mates are at least on paper one step ahead of their opponents.

Prediction: Almost every day we experience new strategies and champions in professional League of Legends and the Misfits are definitely a team that can create innovation and furore. Of course, some compositions can backfire but the quality of players on the site of Misfits can also be rated higher in this duel. I expect a clear 0-1 victory for the Misfits.

EU LCS Summer 2018 Week 2 H2K vs G2

Match #3: H2K Gaming League of Legends LoL Team Logo H2K Gaming vs. G2 Esports G2 Esports League of Legends LoL Team Logo

June 23rd, 11:00 AM PT / 02:00 PM ET / 20:00 CEST

Prediction: A brief look at the table shows: G2 Esports, undefeated, three wins out of three duels, leader of the standings – H2K Gaming, winless, bitter defeats, at bottom of the standings. Not only the betting odds speak for themselves, Perkz and his team mates are definitely the favourites in this clash on Summoner's Rift. After his brilliant performance on the last matchday there will surely be some Kaisa bans against the exceptional talent in the near future. In the past, H2K were able to prevent a perfect season for G2 Esports and take the wind out of their sails but the four-times LCS champions are nevertheless to be favoured in this game. In this duel I expect a clean 0-1 victory for G2 Esports.

EU LCS Summer 2018 Week 2 SPY vs UOL

Match #4: Splyce League of Legends LoL Team Logo Splyce vs. Unicorns of Love Unicorns of Love League of Legends LoL Team Logo

June 23rd, 12:00 PM PT / 03:00 PM ET / 21:00 CEST

Prediction: Neither the Unicorns of Love nor the Splyce team are currently involved in the top half of the 2018 European LCS Summer Split. However, while the unicorns of the league at least managed to sneak one victory over Giants Gaming on the last matchday, the third-placed team of the Spring Splits still can be found at the bottom of the standings after three matches. The team showed a lot of imagination, e.g. Heimerdinger as AD-Carry, Fiddlestick as support with Ziggs as AD-Carry – unfortunately nothing was crowned with success so far. The Unicorns of Love are currently higher in the standings but in this duel I expect Xerxe and his team mates to win for the first time of the split: 1-0 victory for Splyce.

EU LCS Summer 2018 Week 2 VIT vs FNC

Match #5: Team Vitality League of Legends LoL Team Logo Team Vitality vs. Fnatic Fnatic League of Legends LoL Team Logo

June 23rd, 01:00 PM PT / 04:00 PM ET / 22:00 CEST

The end of the second week is a real delicacy for all League of Legends fans and definitely the top game of the day: Team Vitailty and Fnatic clash on the Summoner's Rift. Both teams hold a solid record of two victories and one defeat – extensible for the rest of the season. However, at the moment we are in a meta game in which last season's  MVP (Most Valuable Player) on the AD carry position will be replaced by a rather inexperienced toplaner to ensure a certain diversity and variety. Apparently Bwipo has more experience with champions like Ryze or Vladimir, so Rekkles may only warm up the bench in Fnatic's next games. The Vitality team was perhaps the only team last season which tried to revolutionise the meta game in Europe. Patch 8.11 seems to offer exactly the right opportunity for this, Team Vitality could already convince some doubters in their last games with impressive and worth seeing team compositions. Unfortunately, the team overshot the goal against Team ROCCAT but with this wealth of possible combinations in the pick and ban stage the experienced Team Vitality is a very unpleasant opponent for every team in the league.

Prediction: The betting odds favour Fnatic but this match is probably more exciting than any other match of the day. Jiizuke and his teammates will certainly have a few surprises up their sleeves, against all expectations I expect an outstanding 1-0 victory for Team Vitality.

EU LCS Summer Split 2018 – Week 2 | Day 1 

EU LCS Summer 2018 Week 2 GIA vs UOL

Match #1: Giants League of Legends LoL Team Logo Giants vs. Unicorns of Love Unicorns of Love League of Legends LoL Team Logo

June 22nd, 09:00 AM PT / 12:00 PM ET / 18:00 CEST

Giants' encounter with Unicorn of Love could be a slight point win for the unicorns who failed to win in week 1. But they also had a difficult start to the season against Schalke and Misfits. In general, the Unicorns of Love played sovereign games and played a good defensive game against one of the favourites Schalke, leaving the field with only 9/6 on the kill counter. Quite different in the game against the Misfits, which one may confidently call “Clown-Fiesta”.

Giants with the line-up Top to Bot: GIA-Ruin, Djoko, Betsy, Steelback and SirNukesAlot have defeated H2K in their first game of the split opening. However, this was largely due to the sometimes drastic mistakes in the game structure. In the second game of week 1, they lost hopelessly to Team Vitality and after only 10 minutes, both Gold and Map Control were handed over to their opponents. For this week this means a lot of training for the team-members around coach David “Lozark” Alonso.

For the game I expect a slow standard matchup game of the two teams, both of which are heavily dependent on the points. I think the Unicorns of Love have an advantage in spite of the victorious week 1 and therefore bet on a 1-0 win for Unicorns of Love.

Who is going to win?

EU LCS Summer 2018 Week 2 VIT vs ROC

Match #2: Team Vitality League of Legends LoL Team Logo Team Vitality vs. Roccat ROCCAT League of Legends LoL Team Logo

June 22nd, 10:00 AM PT / 01:00 PM ET / 19:00 CEST

Team Vitality meets the Roccats. Just like in the Spring Split, ladies and gentlemen, it seems the Vitalites captured Roccats roccat for launch to Playoffs.

Because the team around Vit-Cabochard, Gilius, Jiizuke, Attila and Jactroll around coach Jakob “YamatoCannon” Mebdi achieved another phenomenal double victory in the first week. In only 24 minutes, Team Vitality swept Splyce off the field and the (ADC patch) with a Heimerdinger on the Bot Lan, against which the SPY-Kaisa looked no chance. Here we already feel the first strength of Team Vitality – “try better than lose”. With the motto, the team dares to make daring combinations that seem to pay off.

Team Roccat lost to G2 in only 24 minutes in the shortest game of week 1. This time, on the other hand, G2 also showed a home dressmaker on the Bot-Lane against whom ROC-HeaQ also had no chance. In the end the Roccats died 13 times and only got 2x kills and had to leave the studio without glory.

To revive the nostalgia of spring, I prophesy that Team Vitality will continue to win. The fortune telling is of course underlined by their excellent performance, so I bet on a 1-0 victory for Team Vitality.

EU LCS Summer 2018 Week 2 G2 vs S04

Match #3: G2 Esports League of Legends LoL Team Logo G2 Esports vs. Schalke 04 FC Schalke 04 League of Legends LoL Team Logo

June 22nd, 11:00 AM PT / 02:00 PM ET / 20:00 CEST

G2 Esports meets Schalke 04 and we will probably see another game and victory from G2. Team G2 Esports was also very experimental in the constellation of the champions. At the moment there seems to be only the classic Ap-Stomp, or you play defensively until minute 30 and then the conventional team knows how to fight back. I guess coach Joey “Youngbuck” Steltenpool has some more matchups in his bag of tricks with which he will surprise us and of course much more Schalke 04. I guess coach Joey “Youngbuck” Steltenpool has some more matchups in his bag of tricks with which he will surprise us. I'm betting on a 1-0 victory for G2 Esports.

EU LCS Summer 2018 Week 2 H2K vs FNC

Match #4: H2K Gaming League of Legends LoL Team Logo H2K Gaming vs. Fnatic Fnatic League of Legends LoL Team Logo

June 22nd, 12:00 PM PT / 03:00 PM ET / 21:00 CEST

H2K meets Fnatic and even if Fnatic probably had a bad start in the summer split, though the team will find track again and defeat H2K without leaving any chance. The question in this game will not be whether Fnatic will defeat H2k – but how high! H2K would only remain the chance to try out an exotic team composition or the MSI tactic: Fnatics mid-laner camping.  Even if it's always the games you shouldn't commit to make a clear prediction, still I bet on a clear 0:1 victory for Fnatic.

EU LCS Summer 2018 Week 2 SPY vs MSF

Match #5: Splyce League of Legends LoL Team Logo Splyce vs. Misfits Misfits League of Legends LoL Team Logo

June 22nd, 01:00 PM PT / 04:00 PM ET / 22:00 CEST

Splyce meets the Misfits and we can prepare for a game at eye level. Both teams have proven their strength, also in dealing with the new patch. Splyce in the first week without a single victory against two of the three split favourites (G2, Vitality) but per se not with bad performance. Both teams do not have bad expectations in the course of the Spring Split. But if I have to commit myself, I see a small advantage for the Misfits and I expect a 0:1 victory for the Misfits.
