Week 3 – EU LCS Spring Split 2018

It seems like the EU LCS Spring Split 2018 has just begun, but we are already about to see the third week of the season with even more epic battles within sight. It is still difficult to predict which teams will be at the top of the table at the end, as the second week of the EU LCS has again brought some surprises. In Europe, Vitality, Roccat and Giants are still at the top of the table, although hardly anyone gave these teams a chance for reaching the playoffs. Serial winner G2 Esports, on the other hand, still has to be cautious after a winless week, not getting into the top 6 of the league would be an absolute embarrassment for the team around mid laner PerkZ. Week 3 of the EU LCS Spring Split starts on February 2nd, 2018 at 11:00 PM CEST so don’t miss turning on your live streams for more League of Legends action on Summoner’s Rift.

Schedule and Results – 2018 LCS EU Spring Split Week 3

The teams of the EU LCS are still very close together in the table, but this could change considerably in the third week. On the first day,  with Giants! and Roccat will meet two of the current leaders of the standings who want to play for the solo lead in the top game. In the duel between Fnatic and the Misfits, two teams that were hyped as top favourites before the season are competing against each other. A defeat for Fnatic would mean a bitter setback in the battle for the top spots and would increase the Misfits' lead to 2 points. The clash between Schalke 04 and the surprise team Vitality is also going to be exciting to watch.

EU LCS Spring Split 2018 – Week 3 | Day 1 

EU LCS 2018 Week 3 UOL vs H2kMatch #1: Team Logo Unicorns of Love EU LCS 2018 small Unicorns of Love vs. H2K Team Logo H2K Gaming EU LCS 2018 small

February 2nd, 2018: 09:00 AM PST / 12:00 PM EST / 18:00 CET

Prediction: The Unicorns of Love are in a critical situation. With not a single victory, they are currently at the bottom of the table. The performances of Mid Laner Exileh seem to be very uncertain, also the synergy between the individual players is still not good at all. I wouldn't be surprised if UOL get a replacement for Exileh during the season. H2k is facing similar problems, but as a team it is still more convincing. I expect a 0-1 victory for H2K.

EU LCS 2018 Week 3 Giants vs RoccatMatch #2: Team Logo Giants EU LCS 2018 small Giants! vs. ROCCAT Team Logo ROCCAT EU LCS 2018 small

February 2nd, 2018: 10:00 AM PST / 01:00 PM EST / 19:00 CET

The top game of the EU LCS in the Spring Split 2018 is not Fnatic vs. G2 as many fans would have expected but rather Giants vs. Roccat. Together with Vitality and Misfits, the teams lead the European table with three wins from four games each. Especially the good performance of the Giants is very surprising, because after the old Roster was sold almost completely to Team Vitality, there were hardly any players left on the transfer market who could have been hired by the Giants. The experienced players Betsy and Steeelback appear to be on their way to the peak of their careers, although some experts had predicted that both of them have peaked years ago. Top Laner Ruin, on the other hand, seems to be particularly motivated to show his best side, as hewas the only player in the old roster who was not signed by Team Vitality as he was considered weaker than Cabochard. For Roccat, on the other hand, it is difficult to highlight a single player because the collective works well and is responsible for the many successes. A positive surprise is Norskeren, who seems anything but nervous about his first LCS split and is a sovereign support for his team. The two teams play at a very similar level and want to secure the sole lead of the table in the third week. However, both teams face tough challenges on the second day of week, which makes it all the more important to win on the first day.

Prediction: The teams' schedules looked pretty similar, both managed to beat the favourites G2 Esports and consistently performed well. At the Top Lane, there will be a duel between two South Korean imports, whereby I would consider the former SKT player Profit to be somewhat superior. Due to the last two weeks, however, I expect a 1-0 victory for Giants! Gaming.

EU LCS 2018 Week 3 Schalke vs VitalityMatch #3: Team Logo Schalke 04 EU LCS 2018 small Schalke 04 vs. Team Vitality Team Logo Vitality EU LCS 2018 small

February 2nd, 2018: 11:00 AM PST / 02:00 PM EST / 20:00 CET

Prediction: Schalke 04 is still a little shaky after the return of AD-Carry Upset. Last week, the team gave a pentakill to the opposing ADC Kobbe of Splyce and suffered their second defeat of the season. Team Vitality was absolutely convinced so far and could only be beaten by the Misfits. For Schalke, it will probably take some time before they are successful in the LCS. I'm expecting a 0-1 victory for Vitality.

EU LCS 2018 Week 3 G2 vs SplyceMatch #4: Team Logo G2 Esports G2 Esports vs. Splyce Team Logo Splyce EU LCS 2018 small

February 2nd, 2018: 12:00 PM PST / 03:00 PM EST / 21:00 CET

Prediction: For G2, it's about time to win one or two victories, otherwise they'll have to bury their playoff hopes soon. Splyce is an unpleasant opponent, who last week showed Schalke 04 what the team is capable of. G2 needs to start taking more risks and playing aggressively for their great strength: Mid Laner PerkZ. I think the team had long enough time to analyze the mistakes and react to them, therefore I expect a 1-0 victory for G2 Esports.

EU LCS 2018 Week 3 Fnatic vs MisfitsMatch #5: Team Logo Fnatic EU LCS 2018 small Fnatic vs. Misfits Team Logo Misfits EU LCS 2018 small

February 2nd, 2018: 01:00 PM PST / 04:00 PM EST / 22:00 CET

Last but not least: the second top match of the week between Fnatic and Misfits should attract the greatest attention of LCS fans in Europe. Fnatic was a big favourite for the spring split before the season, but the team is already facing some minor problems. Neither H2K nor Vitality could be defeated by Rekkles and Co., and in the third week, next to the Misfits, with Roccat another current leader of the standings is waiting. Fnatic's biggest problem at the moment is the bad shape of mid laner caps. In the last few weeks he has been focussed again and again and could sometimes be completely removed from the game after just a few minutes. The good news is that even his opponent Sencux is not the strength of the team. The Misfits mainly rely on Jungler Maxlore, who has been hyped as the best European jungler since the LoL World Championships. The Bot Lane of Misfits is also very strong, but Rekkles and Hylissang are likely to be slightly superior here. However, the two AD-Carrys are very different from each other because while Rekkles likes to improve his creep score on the Side Lanes to get more gold for items, Hans Sama prefers the company of his team and is looking for fights to gain an advantage.

Prediction: The Misfits are in great shape at the moment and have what it takes to leave the rift victorious against Fnatic. Maxlore is an excellent leader and enriches the team not only with good ganks but also with important calls. A victory against Fnatic would further fuel the title hopes. I'm expecting a 0-1 victory for the Misfits.

EU LCS Spring Split 2018 – Week 3 | Day 2 

EU LCS 2018 Week 3 Unicorns of Love vs VitalityMatch #1: Team Logo Unicorns of Love EU LCS 2018 small Unicorns of Love vs. Vitality Team Logo Vitality EU LCS 2018 small

February 3rd, 2018: 08:00 AM PST / 11:00 PM EST / 17:00 CET

Meanwhile we have experienced the decline of some European favourites of the last few years in the 2018 Spring Split to one of the weakest teams in the league: even though the Unicorns of Love were able to win their match against H2K Gaming on the first day of Week 3 to equalize the score with their direct rivals, Exileh and his teammates are still in the last place of the standings. Some games were very close and you might think they fell victim to the change from best-of-3 duels to single games but apparently they lack the joy of playing with the departure of mascot Romain Bigeard not only outside of the Summoner's Rift. The chemistry between WhiteKnight in the toplane and jungler Kold (formerly: Trashy) seems to be successful from time to time but midlaner Exileh has not yet been able to return to his previous year's form and the botlane is also rarely convincing. On the other side of the playing field you will find the most surprising team of the season: Vitality! Especially midlaner Jiizuke, who with his aggressive style of playing is able to put all other opponents in their place at the moment, leads his team from victory to victory. But also the botlane around Minitroupax and Jactroll looks very sovereign and god Gilius in the jungle is known for his cocky playing style and big mouth but his performances on Summoner's Rift have been outstanding so far and confirm his trash talk before their games. Should the team continue playing this style until the end of the season Team Vitality could easily find themselves in the finals of the playoffs of this year's Spring Split. In the match with the Unicorns of Love they are of course the clear favourites.

Prediction: One victory in their luggage and the Unicorns of Love could breathe a sigh of relief on the first matchday of Week 3 but they face a strong opponent in Team Vitality. Jiizuke and his teammates seem to be hard to stop at the moment and I expect a clear 0-1 victory for Team Vitality.

EU LCS 2018 Week 3 Schalke04 vs GiantsMatch #2: Team Logo Schalke 04 EU LCS 2018 small Schalke 04 vs. Giants! Gaming Team Logo Giants EU LCS 2018 small

February 3rd, 2018: 09:00 AM PST / 00:00 PM EST / 18:00 CET

Prediction: Besides Team Vitality and the Misfits you will also find the surprise team of Giants! Gaming at the top of the table. After the Schalke 04 team had to play with substitute player Boris in the first week of the season and AD-Carry Upset was still ill in the second week we can now experience the real Schalke roster in all its splendour. Although they suffered a bitter defeat to Team Vitality on the first day of Week 3 they showed some strong moves in the early stages of the game. But after all they are only fifth in the standings with two victories and three defeats in their bags. Even the eSports betting sites are counting on a victory for Nukeduck and his teammates, I also predict a narrow 1-0 victory for the FC Schalke 04.

EU LCS 2018 Week 3 ROCCAT vs FnaticMatch #3: Team Logo ROCCAT EU LCS 2018 small ROCCAT vs. Fnatic Team Logo Fnatic EU LCS 2018 small

February 3rd, 2018: 10:00 AM PST / 01:00 PM EST / 19:00 CET

Prediction: With three victories and two defeats the ROCCAT players find themselves on the third place of the European LCS in the Spring Split 2018 but they also had to suffer a sad loss on the first matchday of Week 3 against the Giants Gaming team. The team dynamic of ROCCAT is pretty smooth, especially Midlaner Blanc was able to decide several games in favour of his actual employers. But also Fnatic seems to finally get going again after a weak start into the season, they even managed to show a innovative Nunu pick in their first game. However, the betting odds are predicting a clear victory for Rekkles and Co although Team ROCCAT has so far made a stronger impression than the internationally proven LoL professionals of the European record champion. Keeping the performances of the previous day in mind I also expect a 0-1 victory for Fnatic.

EU LCS 2018 Week 3 H2K vs G2Match #4: Team Logo H2K Gaming EU LCS 2018 small H2K Gaming vs. G2 Esports Team Logo G2 Esports

February 3rd, 2018: 11:00 PM PST / 02:00 PM EST / 20:00 CET

Prediction: After the reigning champions of the European LCS wearing their G2 Esports jerseys as well as Team SoloMid in North America and SK Telecom T1 in South Korea started with a record of one victory and three defeats into the 2018 Spring Split Perkz and his teammates were finally able to beat back with a victory against Splyce on the first matchday. Maybe the team is able to get it together and start winning again. H2K Gaming can be found at the bottom of the standings after their defeat against the Unicorns of Love but only one victory behind their new challengers. In the fourth game of the day I expect an easy 0-1 victory for G2 Esports.

EU LCS 2018 Week 3 Misfits vs SplyceMatch #5: Team Logo Misfits EU LCS 2018 small Misfits vs. Splyce Team Logo SPY EU LCS 2018 small

February 3rd, 2018: 00:00 PM PST / 03:00 PM EST / 21:00 CET

Prediction: After the performances of the last weeks the Misfits are perhaps the team with the best macro game of the league at the moment. Hans Sama and Mikyx harmonize very well in the botlane and jungler Maxlore is together with Gilius maybe the best European player on his position. At the end of the season the players of Splyce will probably find themselves in the sovereign midfield of the league because as far only AD-Carry Kobbe plays very constant every game. His teammates have all their big moments from time to time but the Misfits should be one number too large for the challengers. In the last game of the week I expect 1-0 victory for the Misfits.
