EU LCS Week 3 Day 2 –
Misfits vs. G2 Esports –
Misfits are finding themselves having a much harder time in comparison to the Spring Split, they’ve had more internal issues but most of their gameplay still seems quite formidable. G2 Esports are the Spring Split champions but have been having a hard time conquering the region this split; they’re not in bad shape but will definitely need to make a few minor improvements if they want to reach for the top again. Who will come out on top? Tune into the series when it goes live on Friday, June 16th, to find out!
Misfits – MSF appear to be having a harder time, but a lot of their performances still show great strength. Their adaptions have often kept them ahead of their opponents along with both their micro and macro management. Their map control could use a little work and they may need to practice some patience but they could definitely give G2 a run for their money.
G2 Esports – G2, striving to once again reach the top, have encountered a few issues of their own. They were likely unexpected as they’ve been the EU reigning champions for quite some time now, but being knocked down is the best way to learn. And if G2 increase their performances strengths then the region will improve as a whole.
G2 Esports appear to be at an advantage here, even though they’ve got the same score as MSF and have put on very similar performances. During their series against Fnatic they were able to push the series to a 3rd game, and their similar performances against other teams were filled with more confidence and certainly looked more definitive. MSF are going to need to play through this series confidently and comfortably. Their micro management should get them through the lanes but a bit more aggressive vision could assist them finding their own lead, opening up the middle stages of the game where things will get exciting.
Prediction: G2 Esports Victory. G2 Esports have had stronger performances, but not by bounds or leaps. They’ve had more definitive victories and have pressured their opponents more and I think that confidence, along with their slightly better consistency, will give them the advantages they need to come out on top of this series.
