It's time for what is likely the dress rehearsal ahead of the LEC Summer finals in Athens. This week, we finally get to take on G2 in a best-of-five and prove once and for all that we are still the best team in Europe and judging from MSI results, the world.
The most decorated team in European history vs the reigning MSI champions. This is going to be an epic series and though technically there can only be one winner, the real winner will be the fans who get to see these two incredible teams clash at the pinnacle of their abilities.
And G2 will be praying that our former mid-laner Rasmus "Caps" Winther brings his best form to the stage this week. We know far too well how hard it is to carry a game when 'Craps' turns up. He won't have any room for error when he faces our ice-cold Slovenian mid-laner Tim "Nemesis " Lipovšek.
Speaking of errors and mistakes, Luka "Perkz" Perković will regret ever trying to roleswap when he has to face Martin "Rekkles" Larsson in consecutive games. Splyce's Kasper "Kobbe" Kobberup learned the hard way that when the stakes are high and Rekkles is on an ADC, you have very little chance of survival. The Swede is off Karma duty and without his chains, is ready to light up Europe once again.
Also out to prove himself will be Zdravets "Hylissang" Galabov who was in incredible form the last time we completed in Playoffs and has a good record against G2 this season. Who could forget the time he completely outclassed Mihael "Mikyx" Mehle as Pyke or at the end of Spring when Hyli's one-man mission to take down an inhibitor later resulted in he and Rekkles winning the base race. Hylissang is our only player in the Summer Split All-Pro team to be voted higher than third-place. This weekend, the Bulgarian is going to show everyone that he is the best support in Europe.
And we'll admit, the top and jungle match-up of Gabriël "Bwipo" Rau and Mads "Broxah" Brock-Pedersen vs Martin "Wunder" Hansen and Marcin "Jankos" Jankowski is too difficult to call. Overall, this is going to be an extremely close series and we can't wait to really test ourselves over the next couple of weeks.
