Last week, Roccat's winning streak was cut short as they fell once more to major teams like Alliance and SK Gaming. Supa Hot Crew's chances of landing the top positions may come to fruition if they continue to play like they did against Fnatic. Millenium and SK Gaming inch their way to take away the top spot from Alliance. Will this week's Super week games be the turning point for teams and their standings? Every team has 4 matches this week and every single of them can be a step closer to the playoffs. Find out below in our Preview of LCS Summer Split Season 4 Week 7 | Super Week #2.

ROC vs FNC (July 1, 8:00 PDT/ 11:00 EDT/ 17:00 CEST)
(Head to Head Season 4 Summer Split: ROC 0-2 against FNC)
Roccat and Fnatic both have amazing laning phases but Roccat is far better at lane rotations than Fnatic. Most of the time, Fnatic players roam around the map without any purpose at all while Roccat knows what they are doing at that time. With this game, Roccat needs to play by their strengths and go with lane rotations in order to gain gold and tower advantage. For Fnatic, another pick composition with be well-suited against a team that takes advantage of lane swapping and roaming.
Prediction: However, Roccat's history against Fnatic is not good but if they do try once more they can have the ability to win the game through lane rotations alone.
SK vs GMB (July 1, 9:00 PDT/ 12:00 EDT/ 18:00 CEST)
(SK 1-1 against GMB)
During the Spring Split, it would be a no-brainer as to who would dominate the entire game in this matchup. But times have changed and the Russians are checking out of this game. SK Gaming completely dominates the Russian squad at this stage of the Summer Split and they are more likely to lose out in the late game. What Gambit needs to do is to play a cold methodical game against SK Gaming. A solid lineup based on their own choice of champions that they are good at and SK will cower in fear.
Prediction: If Gambit can hit that right spot when it comes to team compositions then they have a better chance at going 2-1 against SK.
CW vs ROC ( July 1, 10:00 PDT/ 13:00 EDT/ 19:00 CEST)
(CW 1-1 against ROC)
It seems that the bottom two teams have met once more. Last time, Roccat won the game against the Wolves. If there is any glimmer of hope for Copenhagen Wolves is that they need to play well like they did during the roadshow in London. A solid laning phase by Airwaks and Youngbuck would mean a great mid game for Woolite and Unlimited. By relieving pressure from the bottom lane, Woolite and Unlimited will have the chance to freely farm for gold and provide enough damage for teamfights later on where they usually excel with how good Airwaks and Youngbuck have been with Leesin and Irelia.
Prediction: Copenhagen Wolves takes this game from Roccat.
MIL vs FNC (July 1, 11:00 PDT/ 14:00 EDT/ 20:00 CEST)
(MIL 1-1 against FNC)
Prediction: Millenium's dominance and solid laning phase will help them transition to late game effortlessly.

ALL vs SHC
(June 30 12:00 PDT/ 15:00 EDT/ 21:00 CEST)
(ALL 1-1 against SHC)
Some might think that Supa Hot Crew is leagues away from Alliance when in fact, Supa Hot Crew is reminiscent of the way Alliance played during the Spring Split. A few hit and miss team composition but always solid in gameplay and strategy. Supa Hot Crew is still looking for the best way to solidify their team strategy especially when it comes rotations but when they play as a team they play fairly well. There is no doubt Supa Hot Crew knows how to farm up during laning phase of the game which is evident by how SELFIE and MrRalleZ rack up an average gold per game of 18k and 16k respectively. In fact, the entire team is on the second spot for gaining the most amount of gold last week with 144k total just 1k gold below Gambit's 145k. The reasoning behind this is the champions they pick. SELFIE loves to get Ziggs and Yasuo where it is very easy to farm once he acquires a Statikk Shiv. MrRalleZ has always been one of the best AD carries in Europe based on how well he can farm up a lane and last hit minions. So, what seems to be the problem for this motley crew? Late game decision making. There are times when the team is divided into what they want to do. Baron or push towers? And when they are up against a team that can instantly sniff out a scent of doubt from the opposing team then they are in trouble.
Alliance on the other hand is a solid team. If they come out with a 4-0 this Superweek, it is safe to say that they will be on the Worlds Stage this year. As ambitious as it may be, Alliance has earned that spot after a hit or miss split last Spring. They have come a long way since then. Froggen has maintained his status quo as the best midlaner in Europe while Tabzz and Nyph are slowly getting around being the best duo lane with Wickd providing a solid frontline for the team. There is not that much to nitpick against Alliance anymore since they have solidified their team.
Lane matchups to watch: SELFIE against Froggen. Both of these players love to farm up. SELFIE's Ziggs against Froggen's Anivia would be a good match as both would aim to trade and shove the lane out to force the other to last hit under the tower. It will be a learning experience to watch these two try to outfarm each other in the midlane while trading blows and watching out for ganks as both Impaler and Shook will have to appear in the midlane to aid their midlane carries. When compared, both have an almost similar gold per minute average with 399 but Froggen's gold translate immediately to a higher KDA and champions killed statistics with 7.84 KDA and a 4.07 average on champions killed against SELFIE's 2.78 KDA and 3.79 average champions killed.
Prediction: For now, Alliance takes their first win of the week.
Preview and Predictions LCS EU Super Week #2 Day 2
ALL vs SK (July 2, 7:00 PDT/ 10:00 EDT/ 16:00 CEST)
(ALL 2-0 against SK)
This might be one of those back and forth games in the week but with Alliance becoming stronger and stronger each week they might have the ability to take yet another game away from SK furthering solidifying their record 2-0 in this Superweek.
Prediction: A little bit of back and forth between both teams but ultimately Alliance takes the win from behind.
ROC vs MIL (July 2, 8:00 PDT/ 11:00 EDT/ 17:00 CEST)
(ROC 1-1 against MIL)
During their second meeting, Roccat was able to destroy Millenium but not without a few hiccups along the way. Millenium boasts a very solid laning phase and while Roccat also shares the same dominant trait, they are far better at rotations. Millenium needs to pick up a pick composition once more especially with a team that loves to go for a 2v1 setup like Roccat.
Prediction: A solid early game for Roccat if they consider a lane swap but Millenium will get to them by midgame if they are not careful. Pick and ban phase is an important factor for them in this game.
TOP Game EU Super Week #2 Day 2
SHC vs SK
(July 1 9:00 PDT/ 12:00 EDT/ 18:00 CEST)
(SHC 0-2 against SK)
While Supa Hot Crew have never gained a point against SK, they are still the more promising team this split even from the beginning. Supa Hot Crew has a steady early game with Kasing but they need to transition well into late game like what they did in their match against Fnatic. They dominated the laning phase and then transitioned the gold they were able to farm up into items that scale well into the late game. When compared to Jesiz, SELFIE is inferior. Jesiz loves to pick Ziggs and Twisted Fate due to their wave clear and global potential while SELFIE plays the farming game until late game. This is evident with Jesiz having more KDA than SELFIE with 4.28 KDA for the SK Gaming midlaner. However, SELFIE looms over Jesiz when it comes to minions killed with 408.14 against Jesiz's 316.86. SELFIE needs to translate all of this gold to kills in the late game for them to win this game against SK.
The same goes with the team's junglers. Impaler plays the more tanky initiator junglers like Jarvan as of late while Svenskeren plays the pick potentials of Elise and Leesin. This is why Svenskeren dominates Impaler in all stats across the board with a KDA of 3.46 against 2.58 for the British jungler. Impaler needs to pull out a Vi or a good Elise play in order to get back into the game. Although his Jarvan has been good in some of his games, the need to dominate the lane and relieve pressure from other lanes need to come from him so that MrRalleZ and SELFIE can farm up even further.
Lane matchups to watch: MrRalleZ and CandyPanda. Both have similar roles in the early game and late game. Both of them love to play long range carries like Jinx, Caitlyn, and Kogmaw especially CandyPanda but during his match against Millenium, he was frequently out of position and gets easily caught by the likes of Twisted Fate and Lee Sin. Luckily, Supa Hot Crew rarely pulls a Lee Sin or any form of pick composition which is why SK Gaming is heavily favored to win this match if they go for the late game hypercarry.
Prediction: SK Gaming once again reigns supreme especially during late game.
MIL vs GMB (July 2, 10:00 PDT/ 13:00 EDT/ 19:00 CEST)
(MIL 2-0 against GMB)
Millenium is faring better nowadays and everyone is noticing it. Their pick compositions and early game supremacy is evident and Kerp is front and center when it comes to picking off important players in teamfights. This is why he excels at Twisted Fate, Leblanc, and Fizz. NiQ needs to step up his game as he is far behind in all stats across the board against the Millenium midlaner who is bringing his A game this split.
Prediction: Millenium scores another point.
CW vs SHC (July 2, 11:00 PDT/ 14:00 EDT/ 20:00 CEST)
(CW 0-2 against SHC)
Supa Hot Crew won't be ending their second day without a win. Compared to the Copenhagen Wolves, the Crew has more cohesion in late game shotcalling than the Wolves.
Prediction: SHC ends their second day with a win.
FNC vs GMB (July 2, 12:00 PDT/ 15:00 EDT/ 21:00 CEST)
(FNC 1-1 against GMB)
Prediction: It may look like it will be dead even for both teams but Fnatic gets the win by the end of the day.
Preview and Predictions LCS EU Super Week #2 Day 3
CW vs ALL (July 3, 8:00 PDT/ 11:00 EDT/ 17:00 CEST)
(CW 0-2 against ALL)
It looks like the Copenhagen Wolves drew the short end of the stick in this Superweek as they will be facing Alliance for the final day.
Prediction: Alliance gets another win.
MIL vs SHC (July 3, 9:00 PDT/ 12:00 EDT/ 18:00 CEST)
(MIL 2-0 against SHC)
It looks like all eyes are on Supa Hot Crew this week as their match this day will be dubbed as the Game of the Day. This just goes to show how much potential Supa Hot Crew has with their current lineup. Kasing, formerly Yerrow, joined the team after the London roadshow and to great results especially with Braum. When compared against Jree, both are equally adept at playing support but with only a couple of weeks under his belt Kasing is already in the same level with Jree. Jree has an average of 3.05 KDA against Kasing's 3.14. Supa Hot Crew has found another great player with Kasing. He synergizes well with MrRalleZ who needs protection especially in teamfights which is why he is very adept at playing Braum and Nami.
Millenium can once again play with their strengths in this matchup against Supa Hot Crew. Kerp does well with a passive midlaner like SELFIE who prioritizes farming above anything else. This means he can roam around using a Leblanc or a Twisted Fate and destroy the bot lane synergy. Kerp is aware that they need to ban out heavy farmers like Ziggs and Lulu against SELFIE leaving him to pick the likes of Orianna in the midlane.
Lane matchup to watch: Jree and Kasing. With Creaton and MrRalleZ farming up for the late game, it will both down to the support players who will duke it out in the early game as to who can provide better security for their AD carries in lane. Jree is better at initiating with the likes of Leona and Thresh while Kasing is better at warding off potential picks from enemies with the likes of Nami and Braum so it will be a great lane to watch as both support players go back and forth with making plays to gain an advantage over the lane. Jree needs to surprise Kasing with a surprise pick like Zyra against a Braum or Morgana.
Prediction: Can go either way.
SK vs CW (July 3, 10:00 PDT/ 13:00 EDT/ 19:00 CEST)
(SK 2-0 against CW)
SK Gaming's dominance over the entire game will be hard and difficult for the Copenhagen Wolves. However, a solid laning phase for the Wolves might give them a chance to shine in the late game.
Prediction: A slight advantage for SK Gaming.
ALL vs FNC (July 3, 11:00 PDT/ 14:00 EDT/ 20:00 CEST)
(ALL 2-0 against FNC)
Prediction: Alliance ends the Superweek with 4-0.
GMB vs ROC (July 3, 12:00 PDT/ 15:00 EDT/ 21:00 CEST)
(ROC 2-0 against GMB)
The Superweek of the EU LCS closes out with the battle of the bottom teams. At the end of the day, only one team will be able to get a win while the other suffer in defeat. Gambit fares pretty well with gold earned and minions killed against Roccat (1517 gold per minute for Gambit and 1542 for Roccat) but the major difference is their KDA and average champions killed. Roccat has better KDA with 2.84 against Gambit's 2.17 while Gambit has more average champions killed with 9.86 per game than Roccat's 8.71. This means that Roccat has been ramping up on kills and assists due to the fact that they roam more during the early game but are subdued during the late game hence they have a lower average on champions killed than Gambit. Meanwhile, Gambit has far lesser KDA but far superior average champions killed than Roccat means that they fare better mid game as the jungler and midlaner begin to roam. With that in mind, Roccat needs to be aware of the midgame spike that Gambit has in their matchup and begin playing defensively.
Prediction: Can go either way for both teams.
