LEC Summer Finals Hype
Team SoloMid and GE Esports have already secured their 7th and 8th local titles, respectively, with both expert orgs grabbing the LEC and LCS 2020 Summer Splits titles.
While Cloud9 and G2 Esports were hailed as the district's kings in Spring, now, the landscape is vastly diverse in both districts at the end of the summer season.
Those who didn’t do well in Spring have shot up to try as well as mount a charge to make it to the end-year event. Some teams fall short to live up to the hype. The inspiration was super high in Europe, with an additional 4th place on life after the performance of G2 in the previous year.
G2 Esports have gathered their 4th successive title in LEC, and the 8th local championship overall. They sweep their rival Fnatic, with a score of 3-0 in the Summer Finals 2020.
Many pundits were cheering Fnatic to be their winner for the clash after edging G2 in an exciting 3-2 match up a few days ago. G2 Esports was led by Summer, who hailed as the MVP or most valuable players.
The 3 consecutive victories of the started, funnily enough, with some flavor of Team SoliMid. The champions have chosen Shen for Jankos, channeling the shocking pick of the NA roster from Saturday night, and it proved to be key; their opponent was not able to get a good fight win in the first clash the defending champion grabs the first map triumph.
The following map proved to be critical in the three-game series; the rival looked to revenge with a top fight of their own and seemed to win the second match off the back of Bwipo top lane Zilean picks, and Selfmade's Hecarim.
Fnatic bid to maintain game two-hit a snag irrespective of 4.2 thousand gold lead. The defending champion was able to edge Fnatic with Baron Nashor available, and they have gathered a remarkable neutral buff, lead in gold and lastly, get the win.
The loss of Fnatic put them a dent in their hopes of getting the title. After leading in the second map, the lost in the third map, and the defending capitalize their advantage to get the win.
The victory that can just be attributed to Caps' silk-smooth gameplay in the middle lane throughout the three games now puts G2 Esports as the first seed in Europe for Worlds. Fnatic, on the other hand, will represent LEC as the second seed in the region this coming October.
