The past couple weeks I have been following the professional League of Legends leagues. I would say I started to watch at the right time. It’s the heat of the playoff race with just a week to go.
So, with that in mind here’s what I though of the pay from week eight matches. This is the European LCS week eight recaps.
The first match featured my favorite named team Unicorns of Love facing off against Vitality. UOL came into the watch as winners of five games in a row, essentially turning the season around and keeping them in the playoff hunt. Vitality came in on a bit of a slide. However, Vitality held the advantage in every game statistic and ended UOL’s winning ways.
Second match of day one was Misfits and Splyce. Misfits looked like they were going to win early in the contest. Yet in the end Splyce took it and kept up a higher position in the playoff hunt.
G2 took on H2K in game three. H2K stole the game to keep pace in the playoff race. G2 was in second and fighting for top spot yet showed a bit of a decline in this match and in the prior week.
The fourth match I watched was Roccat versus Fnatic. Fnatic showed why they are the top team dominating in kills and gold led. Rekkles carried well for them and showed why he’s a force in the league.
The first match on day two was Misfits and Giants. This game was kind of boring to watch, even with a playoff spot at stake. Giants won to go to 2-0 on the season against Misfits and keep themselves in the thick of the playoff hunt.
Then it was Splyce and H2K. Splyce looked so dominant in this game scoring a 12-0 shutout in kills. It was a big win as they now have an inside track on playoffs.
Afterward it was Roccat and Vitality. Vitality showed inconsistency as Roccat won a match they needed to win to stay alive for a spot in the playoffs.
Unicorns of Love then played Fnatic. UOL was looking to stay alive in the playoff hunt. A win over top ranked Fnatic would help a lot. However, it wasn’t to be as the Unicorns locked up an 0-2 weekend, while Fnatic clinched a playoff spot.
The final match I watched was FC Schalke and G2. Led by Upset and his 6/1/5 kills, deaths, assists line with Tristana Schalke upended G2. G2 just keeps showing decline heading into the playoffs, while Schalke is sitting in a fifth-place tie.
I can’t wait to see the full slate of matches this weekend. It should be exciting with all the playoff spots up for grabs.
