Shun Fukuda / Feb 8th, 2014 No Comments
The third and fourth week of the EU LCS 2014 Spring Split finished up with Fnatic taking some losses, and Copenhagen Wolves and Alliance getting some much needed wins. Eight games are played on a normal week, and each team has now played 10 games after the fourth week.
Fnatic started strong on the third week with two victories against ROCCAT and Copenhagen Wolves. Fnatic proceeded to take a loss in the final game of the third week against Gambit Gaming. The lost to their rival allowed them to tie for first place on the third week. Gambit Gaming remained strong with no losses in week three, taking a victory against the aforementioned Fnatic and a win against Alliance. ROCCAT slumped for week three, taking two losses in a row against Fnatic and SK Gaming. SK Gaming gained some much needed momentum as well, taking two victories, and losing to Supa Hot Crew, going 2-1 for the week. More Junglers from teams started to pick up on the champion Pantheon for the week, albeit with mixed results. Pantheon provides early pressure and damage, and possibly why many players aimed to pick him up.
With week four, Fnatic fell into a slump, taking losses against Alliance and ROCCAT. Gambit Gaming took a victory against Copenhagen Wolves. Then Supa Hot Crew pulled an upset win over Gambit Gaming. Alliance and ROCCAT went undefeated for the fourth week, both teams taking victories against Fnatic and Millenium. Millenium’s only victory for the week came against Supa Hot Crew. Gambit Gaming had unorthodox choices in picking the champion Lulu for the mid lane for the week, with Alex Ich at the helm. Gambit Gaming went 1-1 for week four, but the champion choice caught opposing players off guard. Many players speculated Millenium would come in strong for the week after a great performance at IEM Sau Paulo, but the team seemed to fall into a slump after coming in hot with an International event victory.
With week three and four finished up, ROCCAT, Fnatic, and Gambit Gaming tie for first place at 7-3. Supa Hot Crew, Copenhagen Wolves, SK Gaming, and Alliance have a four-way tie for fourth place at 4-6. Millenium fills last place at 3-7.
The next EU LCS game starts on Thursday Feb. 13, at 10 a.m. PT with SK Gaming taking on Fnatic.
