The LCS Summer Split 2018 is progressing rapidly in week 6. The past week has cemented the lead of some teams, while others have to fear for their lead. After the Summer Split Playoffs the most successful teams qualify for the most important tournament of the year – the LoL World Championship 2018 (LoL Worlds).

In the EU LCS we see well-known structures flare up. At the beginning of the split the Fnatics impressed with extraordinary coordination and aggressive playing style, but stumbled on their own ambitions in the last two weeks. After the double victory in week 5, especially on day 1, FNC-Bwipo was able to underline its enormous importance. The lightness of the Misfits seemed to have disappeared on day 2 against Fnatic. Nevertheless Misfits leads the EU LCS table with 9 points, therefore one week of play. If someone has followed the game H2K against S04: Take minute 36, active Baron Nashor Buff, 6k gold advantage for H2K – mix it all together with bad Elder calls and throw it in the trash. Acknowledged we see H2K´s clearly safer game structure, nevertheless we wish fans and players a victory. H2K's score counter still stands at 0 points…

Nevertheless we are looking forward to the LCS Summer Split 2018 week 6 and can hardly wait for the livestream on July 27th from 18.00 CEST.

Schedule and Results – 2018 LCS EU Summer Split Week 6

Week 6 lets us wait for some exciting encounters. We will see if Fnatic can continue the triumphal procession, or if H2K can celebrate its first victory of the split against the traditional club. The Misfits meet on day 2 the also strengthened Splyce Gaming and the latter had a lot of time to prepare for the second half of the season. Especially the Botlane with SPY-Kobbe and SPY-Kasing will be a headache for Misfit's strategists and we will have to wait and see if the Misfits can provide the right answer. Team Roccat will also have to win day 1 against H2K, otherwise it could be another victorious weekend.

EU LCS Summer Split 2018 – Week 6 | Day 1 

EU LCS 2018 Week 6 ROC vs H2k

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

July 27th, 09:00 AM PT / 12:00 PM ET / 18:00 CEST

The first encounter of the evening is Roccat against H2K. In week 5 of the LCS Summer Split, the latter had again pulled out of the weekend without victory. In the first game against Schalke04 it looked not bad at all over the whole game, for the bottom of the table. H2K also lacked with clear gold and objective advantage the foresight for the game action. With a risky (and unnecessary) Eldercall, the team suddenly lost the entire lead in minute 36 and shortly afterwards also the victory. Nevertheless H2K is making slow and steady progress. For the game I see a hard-fought 1-0 victory for Roccat. 

EU LCS 2018 Week 6 Misfits vs UOL

Match #2: Misfits League of Legends LoL Team Logo Misfits vs. Unicorns of Love Unicorns of Love League of Legends LoL Team Logo

July 27th, 10:00 AM PT / 01:00 PM ET / 19:00 CEST

Misfits encounters Unicorns of Love. The Misfits are currently the undisputed number 1, with 9 victories they are 2 victories ahead of the competition (FNC and G2). The Misfits have stridden with a victory and a defeat from week 5. Let's take a closer look at the defeat against Fnatic on day 2: With the lineup MSF – Mundo, Trundle, Yasuo, Lucian, Braum the team could dominate the midgame as expected. Until minute 17 the Misfits were ahead, even if only with a small gold advantage. Nevertheless, the team could not make up for map control or space gain. Only on Botlane 2 of the 4 Kills could be played by MSF behind the T2 (but before T1) Tower. A strong caps support was to be expected from the FNC Jungler, so MSF-Sencux lost the duel against FNC-Caps Wukong clearly on Yasuo. Despite the lack of MSF Jungle support for the centre, Sencux seemed very helpless and would certainly have had to play more from the defensive.

The Unicorns of Love could not win against Schalke04 and Fnatic in week 5. In the first game it didn't look bad for the unicorns, but as so often the meta didn't work out from minute 28 and the UOL – Swain, Urgot Botlane lacked clear damage spikes in the team fights. So the S04 could also turn their second game and finally defeated the Unicorns of Love in 35 minutes with a kill-counter of 7/8.

I don't want to deny the Unicorns of Love the potential of not winning the game against Misfits. Nevertheless, a realistic assessment is the 1-0 victory for the Misfits. 

EU LCS 2018 Week 6 Giants vs Vitality

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

July 27th, 11:00 AM PT / 02:00 PM ET / 20:00 CEST

The third match of the evening will be Giants Gaming vs. Team Vitality. Team Vitality could not score points in week 5 against Splyce and G2 Esports. Giants Gaming, on the other hand, scored the easily earned points against H2K. Especially GIA-Betsy has reached his best form lately and will remain an unpleasant opponent at whatever outcome. With 3 victories (Vit 5 victories), Giants is also among the bottom of the EU table and must now earn points as a matter of urgency. I appreciate the team spirit and the final character as a strong impetus for the Giants. I expect Giants Gaming to win 1-0. 

EU LCS 2018 Week 6 Fnatic vs Schalke

Match #4: Fnatic League of Legends LoL Team Logo Fnatic vs. Schalke04 FC Schalke 04 League of Legends LoL Team Logo

July 27th, 12:00 PM PT / 03:00 PM ET / 21:00 CEST

Fnatic encounter Schalke04 in the fourth game of the evening, both teams have won two times in week 5, but couldn't be more different. Fnatic always focused on game structure and control, has dominated both games from the beginning. FNC-Bwipo seems to have cemented its Start-Five status after last weekend. Unfortunately, the team management does not announce much about the further use of Rekkles. First it was said that Rekkles should train more magicians and Bruiser to be prepared for the meta. But if Fnatic continue to win twice, the planning will probably not see any more action for him for the time being. But we don't want to forget the other players and at this point we have to select FNC-Caps again for their continuing excellent performance, which the team pulls through some tough opponent midgame metas.

Schalke04 has shown 5 real bites in week. In both games, i.e. against the UOL and H2K, the team did not give up and made the “turn” from the defensive. In the first game of week 5 by a clear blow from H2K, but still lurking and struck at the right time. Schalke04 recently dared to make increasingly exotic combinations, but Fnatic will probably train all modalities for them.

It will be a meeting at eye level and Fnatic will have to be careful not to be on the safe side because of too early dominance. I see a hard-fought 1-0 victory for Fnatic. 

EU LCS 2018 Week 6 Splyce vs G2

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

July 27th, 01:00 PM PT / 04:00 PM ET / 22:00 CEST

Splyce encounters G2 Esports in the last meeting of the evening. The latter have pulled out of the weekend in week 5 with a win and a loss and Splyce has now finally started full speed, with the victory against Giants and Team Vitality on day 2. This encounter will also be a game at eye level and we will follow with excitement what G2-Hjarnan and – Wadid will choose. I don't expect Splyce to break off their winning streak and therefore a 1-0 victory for Splyce. 

Who is going to win?

EU LCS Summer Split 2018 – Week 6 | Day 2 

EU LCS 2018 Week 6 UOL vs Giants

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

July 28th, 09:00 AM PT / 12:00 PM ET / 18:00 CEST

On day 2 the Unicorns of Love encounters Giants Gaming in the first game of the evening. Both teams are currently equal in the EU LCS Summer Split table with three victories. Neither team has any points to give away in week 6 to keep up with the top of the standings. The first encounter between the two opponents is already somewhat in the past. In week 2, Giants and Unicorns of Love separated in a balanced game with a win for UOL. Once again, unicorns will dare to play riskier games, as Giants does not have the ability to deduce the outcome of a single mistake. I expect an exciting mid-level game and bet on a 1-0 victory for the Unicorns of Love. 

EU LCS 2018 Week 6 Roccat vs Vitality

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

July 28th, 10:00 AM PT / 01:00 PM ET / 19:00 CEST

Roccat encounters Team Vitality in the second game of the evening. Neither will probably have forgotten their last encounter against each other. In week 2 the two opponents separated with a victory for the Roccats. We still write the early days of the new Mage-Meta and Team Vitality decided for one – Darius, Skarner, Lulu, Heimerdinger and Alistar Lineup. Roccat chose the Bruiser Midlane with – Vladimir, Trundle, Irelia, Ezrael and Tahm Kench. As expected, Roccat dominated Early with the strong Bruisers until the turn came in minute 20 and Lulu, Darius, Heimerdinger became serious opponents.

From the midgame on, Team Vitality was able to take every objective unpunished and reached the inhibitors with active Baron Buff. At minute 44 it looked somehow clear when Team Vitality had already destroyed two of the Roccats' inhibitors. But suddenly everything went downhill; Vitality decided for the safe way and third inhibitor and had not expected that Roccat with 5K gold difference would dare another TF. The ROC-Profit (Vladimir) Flash-Engage set the cascade in motion and Team Vitality was simply bombarded with everything that was just “up”. Roccat has shown real class and waited exactly the right moment for an “game-turning teamfight” as it was. With a 0-4 trade and deathtimers beyond good and evil, Team Roccat finally had more than enough time to smash VIT Nexus.

Both teams are currently on equal points in the table and I am particularly looking forward to this encounter. We'll see how Team Vitality will react to the shame of the last game. Nevertheless, I bet on a 1-0 victory for Roccat. 

EU LCS 2018 Week 6 FC Schalke 04 vs. G2 Esports

Match #3: FC Schalke 04 League of Legends LoL Team Logo Schalke04 vs. G2 Esports G2 Esports League of Legends LoL Team Logo

July 28th, 11:00 AM PT / 02:00 PM ET / 20:00 CEST

Schalke 04 encounters G2 Esports on day 2 of LCS week 6. Schalke04 with a victory less than G2 Esports needs a victory, also in view of the world qualification. The last match of the two teams is also in week 2 and went out in favour of G2 Esports. In a game called “Kai´sa OP” afterwards, G2 could sweep Schalke04 off the field in only 25 minutes. G2-Perkz had a 12/1/2 Kill/Death/Assist counter at the end of the game and in between it looked more like ARAM than after a game at LCS level. Fortunately, the “Braum Jungle Support Mid Tactic” is no longer viable, so G2 now has to surprise us with something else. But I'm sure they will make it and bet on a 0:1 victory for G2 Esports. 

EU LCS 2018 Week 6 FNC vs H2k

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

July 28th, 12:00 PM PT / 03:00 PM ET / 21:00 CEST

The fourth match of the evening Fnatic against H2K. H2K still victorious with 0 points in the table. So the “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” prize question is: How did the first match of H2K vs. FNC turned out… Fnatic is only two victories behind Misfits and will certainly play this game in a safe way. Against H2K you are easily tempted to play on reserve, but H2K is just waiting for an honorary win in this split. So a good possibility for Fnatic to show us once more a safe game structure and game dynamics. I don't doubt that Fnatic win, but how high?! So I can only guess a 1-0 victory for Fnatic. 

EU LCS 2018 Week 6 Misfits vs Splyce

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

July 28th, 01:00 PM PT / 04:00 PM ET / 22:00 CEST

The last game of the evening is Misfits versus Splyce. Misfits currently lead the standings with 9 victories in the counter and Splyce last on the hunt to catch up, currently with 5 victories in the table. The last encounter in week 2 was clearly to the Misfits. MSF-Sencux on Irelia almost tore up the enemy ranks and tanks. Also from MSF-Hans Sama and MSF-Mikyx we expect another brilliant performance on the Botlane. As already mentioned, Splyce still managed to gain new strength for the podium and will put many obstacles in the way of the Misfits. I expect a game at eye level, although a victory seems more likely for the Misfits. I'm betting on a 1-0 win for the Misfits.
