Week 3 – EU LCS Summer Split 2018

If you take a look at Week 3 of the 2018 LCS Summer Split of season 8 the LoL patch 8.12 brings a little more tranquillity into the still chaotic meta game of the professional League of Legends scene. Slight improvements of attack damage carries (marksmen) in the botlane combined with nerfs of specific champions should also counteract certain botlane compositions and maybe in the next weeks we will see the star players of the LCS again in their usual positions on Summoner's Rift. After all, top teams in all regions are fighting for important Championship points to qualify for the 2018 League of Legends World Championship. G2 Esports and the Misfits are still at the top of the European standings, in the last four duels these teams have not shown any weaknesses and are still undefeated. However, with two victories in Week 2 Fnatic is also breathing down their neck so the upcoming Week 3 of the Summer Split could bring some surprises. Week 3 of the 2018 LCS summer season starts with the duel between Team ROCCAT and Giants Gaming on June 29th at around 6:00 PM CEST, so don't forget to cool your drinks and switch on the live streams on time!

EU LCS Summer Split 2018 Week 3 H2K vs MSF

Match #1: H2K Gaming League of Legends LoL Team Logo H2K vs. Misfits Misfits League of Legends LoL Team Logo

June 30th, 09:00 AM PT / 12:00 PM ET / 18:00 CEST

Prediction: In tonight's first match, two teams with completely different starting positions will meet. While the Misfits are still unbeaten and lead the table together with G2, H2K are still without victory after 5 games and could soon lose touch with the other teams. The players have to blame themselves for this misery, because even after good draft phases H2K was always defeated by the opponents due to individual mistakes. The situation is clear for me here, I expect a 0-1 victory for the Misfits.

EU LCS Summer Split 2018 Week 3 VIT vs S04

Match #2: Team Vitality League of Legends LoL Team Logo Team Vitality vs. Schalke 04 FC Schalke 04 League of Legends LoL Team Logo

June 30th, 10:00 AM PT / 01:00 PM ET / 19:00 CEST

The match between Team Vitality and Schalke 04 will be one of the most decisive matches of today. After Schalke with the new jungler Marcel “Amazing” Stückenschneider first showed very appealing performances and made the impression to belong to the playoff candidates this time, the team had to take already three defeats from the first five games. On the first day of week 3 it became clear that Schalke was not yet playing at the same level as the top European teams, because the German organisation had no chance against the Misfits. But Team Vitality could now be just the right opponent to rebuild the morale of the players. Both teams are focused on earlygame and want to be proactive themselves, whoever succeeds in the first 10 minutes better has good chances to work out a huge advantage. Vitality still goes without standard team compositions, Botlaner Attila mostly plays mages like Ziggs or Swain, at least for this Schalke can prepare well. The encounter between the two German junglers, who have very different background stories, also will be very exciting. S04-Amazing was previously analyst for Riot Games, after playing unsuccessfully as an active player in the EU LCS for some splits. VIT-Gilius, on the other hand, has had a fantastic split, as the formerly sorted out team of promoted Giants reached fourth place in their rookie split and thus the playoffs. Also in the current season the chances are good that Vitality will reach the playoffs again.

Prediction: Schalke is plagued by the same problems as in spring, the players perform well individually, but the team does not manage to turn good actions into victories. Vitality, on the other hand, proves their good teamwork over and over again, so I expect a 1-0 victory for Team Vitality.

EU LCS Summer Split 2018 Week 3 GIA vs FNC

Match #3: Giants League of Legends LoL Team Logo Giants Gaming vs. Fnatic Fnatic League of Legends LoL Team Logo

June 30th, 11:00 AM PT / 02:00 PM ET / 20:00 CEST

Prediction: Fnatic suffered a clear defeat in yesterday's top duel against G2 Esports. Against the Giants, however, Caps and his team are the big favourites. Due to the current meta, Fnatic continues to perform without their Star-ADC Rekkles. Officially it was said that Rekkles will concentrate again on the classic marksmen and then play when they are strong again. Even without the Dane, the team will score well against the Giants, I expect a clear 0-1 victory for Fnatic.

EU LCS Summer Split 2018 Week 3 SPY vs ROC

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

June 29th, 12:00 PM PT / 03:00 PM ET / 21:00 CEST

Prediction: Splyce scored their first victory on the first day of play this week, while ROCCAT have got off to a very good start in the split and are currently in third place. It is difficult to distinguish a single player of the collective, because the team often wins the game at the Baron Nashor, and executes teamfights very well. I expect a 0-1 victory for ROCCAT.

EU LCS Summer Split 2018 Week 3 G2 vs UOL

Match #5: G2 Esports League of Legends LoL Team Logo G2 Esports vs. Unicorns of Love Unicorns of Love League of Legends LoL Team Logo

June 30th, 01:00 PM PT / 04:00 PM ET / 22:00 CEST

Prediction: G2 Esports seems to have returned to its former strength. On the first day of week 3, the team won for the first time against Fnatic in the year 2018. The “funnel” strategy currently often used, in which only Mid Laner PerkZ plays a carry and is supported by the rest of the team, seems to work well for G2. If an ADC is allowed to play in a team with Morgana, Rakan and Tahm Kench, he hardly has to worry about his positioning and can attack in peace, because in an emergency enough shields are waiting for him. I think that a similar team composition will be chosen against the Unicorns of Love, even though Jungler Jankos certainly misses his usual champions. I expect a 1-0 victory for G2 Esports.

EU LCS Summer Split 2018 – Week 3 | Day 1 

EU LCS Summer 2018 Week 3 ROC vs GIA

Match #1: ROCCAT League of Legends LoL Team Logo ROCCAT vs. Giants Gaming Giants League of Legends LoL Team Logo

June 29th, 09:00 AM PT / 12:00 PM ET / 18:00 CEST

Prediction: While Team ROCCAT is in the middle of the pack of the European LCS standings with a balanced ratio of victories to defeats the challengers of Giants Gaming were only able to win against H2K Gaming so far. Interesting team compositions can be found especially on the ROCCAT side with picks like Lissandra in the midlane paired with Ziggs as AD carry Memento and his team mates already surprised many fans. Giants Gaming, on the other hand, doesn't seem to have arrived in patch 8.11+ yet, especially the Tristana pick against Misfits Gaming doesn't seem appropriate anymore. Blanc and his fellow combatants look a little fresher and more experimental in this young season, I expect a 1-0 victory for Team ROCCAT.

EU LCS Summer 2018 Week 3 S04 vs MSF

Match #2: FC Schalke 04 League of Legends LoL Team Logo FC Schalke 04 vs. Misfits Misfits League of Legends LoL Team Logo

June 29th, 10:00 AM PT / 01:00 PM ET / 19:00 CEST

Prediction: The Misfits are still at the top of the European table, the chaotic meta-game seems to be made for Alphari and his team mates. Who knows how all teams will behave when patch 8.13 finally offers some more stability – especially in the AD carry position – but apparently Jesiz brings a lot of creativity and knowledge into the game of Misfits, even if only as a substitute. FC Schalke 04 still needs good performances after a disappointing Spring season to qualify for the 2018 League of Legends World Championship. Against the top teams of Fnatic and G2 Esports, however, they already suffered bitter defeats – and in this match I expect as well an exciting 0-1 victory for the Misfits.

EU LCS Summer 2018 Week 3 H2K vs SPY

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

June 29th, 11:00 AM PT / 02:00 PM ET / 20:00 CEST

Prediction: Where is the inspiring Splyce team of the 2018 Spring Split? Both challengers counted as punching bags for their opponents of the first two rounds of the season, both H2K and Splyce have currently suffered four defeats. At least one of these two teams can now put an end to this unlucky series but for a playoff spot at least teams like the Unicorns of Love have to be beaten in the future. The H2K team's upswing after some good games in the second half of the Spring Split seems to have slowed down a long time ago and Selfie and his team mates are perhaps the worst team of the European League of Legends Olympus at the moment. In this duel of the stragglers I therefore expect a narrow 0-1 victory for Splyce.

EU LCS Summer 2018 Week 3 VIT vs UOL

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

June 29th, 12:00 PM PT / 03:00 PM ET / 21:00 CEST

Prediction: Apparently praised too early – after a brilliant start with two victories in a row the Vitality team had to accept two defeats in Week 2 of the Summer Split. Well, against Fnatic this may happen, but if you want to play at the top for the victory in the EU LCS you have to at least put Team ROCCAT in their place on Summoner's Rift. The Unicorns of Love, on the other hand, are on the upswing and after a disappointing Week 1 they were victorious against both Giants Gaming and Splyce. However, the odds favor Team Vitality, Jiizuke and his team mates also look a little stronger on paper. In this duel I expect a 1-0 victory for Team Vitality.

EU LCS Summer 2018 Week 3 G2 vs FNC

Match #5: G2 Esports League of Legends LoL Team Logo G2 Esports vs. Fnatic Fnatic League of Legends LoL Team Logo

June 29th, 01:00 PM PT / 04:00 PM ET / 22:00 CEST

It is worth watching the whole LCS evening on the first day of Week 3 because the top match of the round will not start before 10:00 PM MESZ with the clash between G2 Esports and Fnatic. Both traditional teams started very strong into the new season, only Fnatic had to accept a defeat against Misfits Gaming in their first game of the split. To the surprise of many fans superstar Rekkles has been moved to the bench – the confusing meta-game distinguishes itself by many mages and support champions on the AD carry position and team mate Bwipo seems to have a much bigger champion pool than the MVP of the last season. Nevertheless, so-called gold funnel strategies are currently dominating the Summoner's Rifts around the world, in which the jungler (or midlaner) concedes the farm and plays a supportive role and champions like Kaisa, Master Yi, Xayah or Karthus collect the all minion kills in jungle and midlane. At the moment there are still few counter strategies, should the supported champion be able to acquire enough gold and level, it is usually called “Game Over” for the opposing team. Top teams like Kingzone DragonX from South Korea have already proven how to stop this strategy as soon as possible but you need a very strong early game and brilliant communication. Both Rekkles and Caps would be a perfect fit for this strategy, apparently the Fnatic team puts all their trust in the young midlaner. Also for G2 Esports, Midlaner Perkz seems to bear the burden of the pressure of success – and in the first two weeks the Croatian pushed his team over the finish line with ease. With Fnatic, however, the first big hurdle awaits the gladiators of the European LCS.

Prediction: Once again these two teams meet at eye level, Fnatic's defeat seems forgotten and a good pick-and-ban phase will decide about success or failure. A coin toss could win this duel but I expect a slight advantage for the team on the red side and therefore a narrow 0-1 victory for Fnatic.
