4.18.20 LOL LEC/LCS Slate

It seems we’ve come full circle for both LEC and LCS. G2 and MAD kicked off the playoff series in the EU scene with a massive upset as G2 disappointed fans everywhere. Now they meet again in the semifinals, but G2 are looking much stronger this time around. Meanwhile, EG took down FLY in Round 1 of the LCS playoffs, and they are now face to face once more in the semifinals to determine who will lose to- I mean battle Cloud 9 in the finals.  G2’s score during the split qualified them for the quarterfinals regardless of their loss to MAD, and they made short work of Origen. Meanwhile, Mad Lions were dominated by Fnatic, so this matchup should be different from the first series. On the other side of the ocean, Flyquest had a great run after losing to EG, although their TSM games came rather close. EG on the other hand only played against Cloud 9 and managed to take one game, so they are looking good, but it isn’t exactly a confirmed win. Let’s see what’s in store for us.

Statistics are still from the Spring Split, just bear in mind the teams have played around 8 games on average, except for FLY who have played 13 (due to the drawn out series with TSM.) Those games will be factored into the analysis, so pay attention to the tables but remember they don’t reflect the most recent performances.

This matchup was definitely a dark time for G2, but we’ve seen some rebound recently. Their series against Origen on Sunday helped restore confidence in the team, although 2 of the 4 games played weren’t exactly heavily in G2’s favor; they lost one and scraped by with a 3k gold lead and a few extra kills in Game 2. But if we’re going to look at these performances, we have to acknowledge MAD v Fnc. They got pretty heavily destroyed in that matchup, so it looks more and more likely that G2 was just incredibly off in their first series. At any rate, they will not be messing around here, so expect vintage G2.

Caps had some poor moments that first game, but when playing against Origen, he broke 32 kills throughout the series. Odds are he’ll be a fantastic pick once more, with Jankos and Perkz backing him up on the scoreboard. When G2 won, Mikyx had crazy assist counts, and Wunder was in the background on the scoreboard for the most part. Meanwhile, MAD didn’t have the worst scores in their games against FNC, but they wouldn’t have done you any favors either. Unless G2 decide to completely choke again, their roster should serve you well, particularly in the bot lane. 

MAD Top Picks: Orome, Carzzy, Kaiser G2 Top Picks: Jankos, Perkz, Caps, Mikyx

EG(-256) V FLY(+189)  (4 PM EST)

Turrets/Game6.85.6
K+D/Game22.421.7

EG had some good games against FLY, but they weren’t all very kill heavy. More often than not, the kills were spread out with assists on mostly Svenskeren and Zeyzal, although we did see Jiizuke do well in Game 4. FLY tends to do better in the kill departament when they win, but after struggling against TSM it’s unsure if they will be able to take down EG. EG have had some time to prepare for the upcoming matches, but it’s possible they are focusing primarily on Cloud 9, as that will be their biggest obstacle. If they didn’t dedicate enough time on FLY, they could end up being surprised here.

Santorin73.8%3.55.2
PowerOfEvil68.4%4.67.4
WildTurtle58.5%3.79.5
IgNar70%4.11

PowerOfEvil is the clear pick on FLY, having more potential this series if FLY are coming into it better prepared. If not, the team might just fall apart, leaving no one with great scores, as players like Santorin and Solo don’t exactly carry the team themselves. EG on the other hand haven’t always been known for their kills; Bang has had some decent games, but their last series against FLY didn’t see too much out of him. Both Svenskeren and Santorin, as well as Zeyzal and IgNar, have done very well for themselves with assists when their teams perform, so they could be great picks depending on which team you’re going for. FLY do seem to have more of a chance this time around, but it is close to be sure; but if they manage to get PowerOfEvil fed then they could find themselves facing Cloud 9 in the Grand Finals.

EG Top Picks: Svenskeren, Jiizuke, Zeyzal FLY Top Picks: Solo, Santorin, PowerOfEvil, IgNar
