It's Playoffs season, our time to shine. With just a few weeks of the LEC Summer Split remaining, it's time for to really buckle down and secure second place so we're guaranteed a sunny trip to Athens next month. We'll admit, Week 7 is looking like a tough one with games against Schalke and G2 but we have full confidence of doing what we do best, winning.
Schalke: singing the Royal Blues
Schalke have quietly hanging around the top half of the standings this Summer but blew their chance to enter the battle for the top two last week after their poor performance against Splyce. Well, most of their players had a bad game apart from ADC Elias "Upset" Lipp who did his absolute best to 1v9. Though the German nicknamed "Carry Potter" won't have enough magic to outperform Martin "Rekkles" Larsson, in fact he'll wish he had an invisibility cloak to hide his embarrassment.
We also have to look at the mid-lane match up between two pros who started their pro careers back in January earlier this year. Felix "Abbedagge" Braun has had a solid first year in the LEC but with Europe's mid-lane talent pool, it's been hard for him to stand out. Especially with the likes of Tim "Nemesis" Lipovšek in the league, when the calm and collected Slovenian isn't playing with cats, he's stomping his lane opponents and this weekend won't be any different.
G2: going for the three-peat
This is the one you've all been waiting for, the biggest game of the regular season. It's always fun when the two most successful teams in League of Legends history clash on the Rift, especially considering we've won our last two encounters. The last match was particularly beautiful as Mads "Broxah" Brock-Pedersen's galaxy brain set us up beautifully in the early-game before Gabriël "Bwipo" Rau smashed Rasmus "Caps" Winther in the top-lane.
After that bad experience, we're sure Caps will return to the mid-lane and we'll be in the crowd waiting with a "Play Yuumi mid" sign if he's up to the challenge. G2 can play what they want in whichever lane it won't matter when we end their win-streak and complete our Summer double against them.
