EU LCS Spring Split 2018 – Week 4 | Day 1 

EU LCS 2018 Week 4 H2K vs SplyceMatch #1: Team Logo H2K Gaming EU LCS 2018 small H2K vs. Splyce Team Logo SPY EU LCS 2018 small

February 9th, 2018: 09:00 AM PST / 12:00 PM EST / 18:00 CET

Prediction: After the victory over Fnatic in the first week of the EU LCS Spring Split, many were positively surprised by H2K and attributed chances to the team for the playoffs. Since then, however, not a single victory has been achieved and H2K shares the last place in the standings with the Unicorns of Love. Splyce showed a strong performance against the Misfits last week and was able to regain its place among Fnatic and G2. Due to the more stable performances in the last weeks I expect a 0-1 victory for Splyce.

EU LCS 2018 Week 4 Roccat vs VitalityMatch #2: Team Logo ROCCAT EU LCS 2018 small ROCCAT vs. Vitality Team Logo Vitality EU LCS 2018 small

February 9th, 2018: 10:00 AM PST / 01:00 PM EST / 19:00 CET

Prediction: After the first two weeks Roccat was able to play on the level of the best teams of europe and made himself a suitable candidate for the playoffs with the victories against G2 and Fnatic, but in the third week the crash came and Roccat now has to orientate himself to the rear ranks. Team Vitality, on the other hand, is the sole leader of the standings with only one defeat in the split so far and certainly doesn't want to change that. I'm expecting a 0-1 victory for Team Vitality.

EU LCS 2018 Week 4 Giants vs MisfitsMatch #3: Team Logo Giants EU LCS 2018 small Giants vs. Misfits Team Logo Misfits EU LCS 2018 small

February 9th, 2018: 11:00 AM PST / 02:00 PM EST / 20:00 CET

The Giants are still in a good position to reach the playoffs in spring. Even if the team will still suffer some defeats from time to time, the organisation has shown that it was able to cope well with the late loss of its former roster. Players such as Betsy and Steelback, who were not expected to perform miracles any more, perform at a high level week after week and delight us viewers. In the fourth week, perhaps the biggest challenge awaits now, because apart from the Misfits on the first day, there is also the duel against Fnatic on the second day of the week. The Misfits are currently sharing a place in the table with the Giants. The season has also been positive for them so far, with small slip-ups like last week's defeat against Splyce. Even though the players of Giants Gaming presented themselves surprisingly well so far, I consider the playful quality of the Misfits to be somewhat higher. Hans Sama has played his way up to maybe the best AD-Carry of the EU LCS in the last few months, Jungler Maxlore is always in the right place at the right time and knows exactly how to support his Lanes. But if this season has taught us one thing so far, it's that everything is possible in the best-of-1 and that favourites will soon lose out. The games sometimes last very long and are decided after 3 or more barons, which favours team compositions that rely on good scaling.

Prediction: I think that the synergy on the Misfits side is still in need of adjustments, but will be enough to win the game against the Giants. If the team doesn't advance early, the team fights in the later game will decide where Hans Sama can show his full potential. I'm expecting a 0-1 victory for the Misfits.

EU LCS 2018 Week 4 Fnatic vs UOLMatch #4: Team Logo Fnatic EU LCS 2018 small Fnatic vs. Unicorns of Love Team Logo Unicorns of Love EU LCS 2018 small

February 9th, 2018: 12:00 PM PST / 03:00 PM EST / 21:00 CET

Prediction: Although Fnatic didn't make a dream start into the new season, it looks much more gloomy for the Unicorns of Love. So far, only one victory has been achieved against the weakly appearing H2K. In order to emerge victorious against Fnatic, it takes a lot of aggression to put pressure on the two Carrys Rekkles and Caps from the very beginning. However, the Unicorns are not known for their good early game, on the contrary. I therefore expect a 1-0 victory for Fnatic.

EU LCS 2018 Week 4 G2 vs SchalkeMatch #5: Team Logo G2 Esports G2 Esports vs. Schalke 04 Team Logo Schalke 04 EU LCS 2018 small

February 9th, 2018: 01:00 PM PST / 04:00 PM EST / 22:00 CET

The last match of the evening promises to be a duel at the highest level. After a weak start into the Spring Split, G2 Esports pulled themselves together and regained a lot of self-confidence with two victories last week. Schalke 04, on the other hand, was still unable to get off to a good start. In the match against Vitality, the German team could have proved that they were not wrongly hyped as one of the favourites for the Spring Split 2018, but the players made many mistakes and seemed too nervous overall. With G2 Esport, the next test is on the agenda, while on the second matchday against H2K there should be a safe victory. But let's concentrate on the meeting of G2 and Schalke. The duel in the Mid Lane between PerkZ and Nukeduck should be especially interesting. Giants-Mid Laner Betsy also heated up the clash with his statements that Nukeduck is better in his eyes than PerkZ (Source). In fact, Nukeduck was mostly responsible for a large part of Schalkes victories. Pride and Vizicsacsi, in particular, must perform more consistently and eliminate their minor inattentions in order to ensure that they continue to be successful. In Bot Lane I see the advantage of Schalke 04, because although Upset and Vander haven't yet had the opportunity to shine, the duo is probably one of the strongest in Europe.

Prediction: The outcome of the game is really hard to predict, at least with the bookmakers G2 Esports is the favorite. If Nukeduck manages to win the Mid Lane for Schalke and maybe supports his team early on with his roams (he did a great job last week with his Galio), then I can see the advantages on their side. I'm betting on the underdog and expect a 0-1 victory for Schalke 04.

EU LCS 2018 Week 4 Vitality vs SplyceMatch #1: Team Logo Vitality EU LCS 2018 small Vitality vs. Splyce Team Logo SPY EU LCS 2018 small

February 10th, 2018: 08:00 AM PST / 11:00 PM EST / 17:00 CET

The European LCS is turned upside down coming into the Spring Peason of 2018 – anyone who was expecting former European kings such as G2 Esports or Fnatic participating in the game of the week is more than wrong this year: the numerous fans of the European LoL champions league are eagerly awaiting the clash of Team Vitality and Splyce. The surprise team of the season is still gloriously leading the EU LCS standings and is also the clear favourite in this duel. However, Jiizuke and his team-mates fought a tough duel with Team ROCCAT on the first day of the week, in the longest match of the season so far the Vitality players had to make up for some early deficits and could only take the victory by a witty backdoor attempt of AD-Carry Minitroupax. Since jungler Gilius is self-confident as usual on Summoner's Rift and often likes to trash-talk his opponents before every game he only has one thing at the top of his to-do list after the duel with ROCCAT: learn to smite! His opponent Memento was able to steal the epic monster Baron Nashor from Vitality twice, leaving Gilius standing there as ordered and not picked up. In general, Team Vitality is a very emotional team that is carried away on a wave of success – but it can also tip over quickly and the success fades away. After a mixed start into the season the Splyce team was able to consolidate a strong place in the top third of the standings and Odoamne and his team-mates were able to secure a win against the overhauled H2K roster on the first day of Week 4. However, the true skill level of the team is still very difficult to estimate and AD-Carry Kobbe seems to be the most constant player of the team.

Prediction: On the first day of Week 4 Vitality had more problems with Team ROCCAT than it should have been for a team at the top of the European LCS. Nevertheless, no one should bet against the leaders of the EU LCS at the moment and also on paper the stars of Vitality make a better impression. Especially the duel between Xerxe and Maxlore in the jungle should be exciting but I expect a narrow 1-0 victory for Team Vitality.

EU LCS 2018 Week 4 H2K vs Schalke04Match #2: Team Logo H2K Gaming EU LCS 2018 small H2K Gaming vs. Schalke 04 Team Logo Schalke 04 EU LCS 2018 small

February 10th, 2018: 09:00 AM PST / 00:00 PM EST / 18:00 CET

And if the things just don't go smoothly in the LCS, just change the players' roster in the middle of the season – this motto has been taken to heart by many teams in recent years and the strategy has rarely been crowned with success. The suffering player this time is jungler Santorin, the former Superstar of Team SoloMid has been put on the bench and ex-midlaner Caedrel has taken over his job on the Summoner's Rift. Midlaner Selfie is celebrating his comeback in the European LCS, the exceptional player was hired by H2K Gaming at short notice. Although Santorin has changed his playstyle in recent years playing for Gold Coin United and Team NRG he was still very passive – nevertheless solid – this season. Caedrel is now supposed to provide more variety and a more aggressive playstyle for the team, whether the change will pay off in the long term is still written in the stars. FC Schalke 04 started into the 2018 Spring Split with much praise from LoL experts and opposing teams but with a mediocre score of three victories and three defeats they could not yet live up to their hype. The strongest player of the team is midlaner Nukeduck who may go toe-to-toe with any opponent at the moment. After two bitter defeats against favourite Team Vitality and a surprising Splyce squad the challengers now have to step up their game to keep up with the leaders of the EU LCS. In this duel, however, they are considered favourites and should not have any problems with H2K Gaming.

Prediction: At least we see midlaner Selfie again in the European LCS, many fans questioned the decision of some LCS teams to not oblige this exceptional player in the pre-season. It remains to be seen whether Caedrel can immediately convince all fans and experts without professional jungle experience. Nukeduck and his team-mates should be ahead in this duel and I expect a clean 0-1 victory for the FC Schalke 04.

EU LCS 2018 Week 4 ROCCAT vs MisfitsMatch #3: Team Logo ROCCAT EU LCS 2018 small ROCCAT vs. Misfits Team Logo Misfits EU LCS 2018 small

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

Prediction: The Giants demonstrated on the first day of the week how to disrupt the game of the Misfits already in the pick-and-ban phase. They throw bans at some scaling AD champions targeting superstar AD-Carry Hans sama and therefore he had to pick Ezreal and was no longer able to lead his team to victory in the later stages of the game against the stronger late game composition of the opponents. It remains to be seen whether Team ROCCAT can repeat this strategy – but in the duel against Team Vitality Blanc and his team-mates were finally able to show their teeth for the first time. Nevertheless, I expect a rather exciting match and a 0-1 victory for the Misfits.

EU LCS 2018 Week 4 Fnatic vs GiantsMatch #4: Team Logo Fnatic EU LCS 2018 small Fnatic vs. Giants Team Logo Giants EU LCS 2018 small

February 10th, 2018: 11:00 PM PST / 02:00 PM EST / 20:00 CET

Prediction: Giants Gaming were able to beat the Misfits on the first matchday of Week 4 and could finally prove with a narrow but imaginative victory that they earned their place among the current elite teams of the European LCS. If you take a look at the standings of the EU LCS you will find Fnatic a few places further down the ranking and for Rekkles and his team-mates the season so far does not go according to plan. In this exciting duel I therefore expect a close 0-1 victory for Giants Gaming.

EU LCS 2018 Week 4 G2 vs UOLMatch #5: Team Logo G2 Esports G2 Esports vs. Unicorns of Love Team Logo Unicorns of Love EU LCS 2018 small

February 10th, 2018: 12:00 PM PST / 03:00 PM EST / 21:00 CET

Prediction: Slowly and steadily the G2 Esports team crawls its way back to the top of the standings, with two victories over H2K and Splyce Perkz and his team-mates finally set an example in the last week of the Spring Split. However, the dominance of the last few years has already been forgotten and the reigning kings of the European LCS have relinquished their crown in the first few weeks of play. Nevertheless, the Unicorns of Love started even worse in Spring Split 2018 and are currently the worst team in the league after H2K Gaming. In the last game of the day I expect a 1-0 victory for G2 Esports.
