After 9 weeks of play the European regular split has finally wrapped up with G2 and Origen securing first and second place respectively and therefore ensuring a spot in the final’s weekend from the 13th of April in Rotterdam. It has been an amazing LEC 2019 Spring Split, but just how good was it?
Fnatic’s run this season has been impressive as despite starting 0-4 they managed to turn their season around winning their last 8 games including their 2nd match against G2 which featured a base race that came down to the wire as the inhibitor was seconds away from respawn.
With their third place finish secured Fnatic were given the option to select their opponent for the first round of playoffs and elected to face Team Vitality.
The entire weekend Schalke, Misfits and SK gaming were in battle for the last remaining playoff spot, however as Misfits lost on Friday to Splyce on Friday they were immediately knocked out of contention, leaving the last spot to be decided on Saturday in a tie breaker between the two remaining teams.
While the game started of well for Schalke after a fight near the mid lane resulted in a quadra kill for SK gaming’s adc Crownshot the match was decided and SK then took the last remaining play off spot.
The LEC will take a break next week and return with Fnatic versus Vitality on the 29th with SK gaming versus Splyce on the following day.
