The fifth week of the EU LCS 2014 Spring Split closed out with SK Gaming continuing their winning streak momentum, and Fnatic still unable to pick up a win.
In the first day, SK Gaming took on Fnatic. While Fnatic had a great early game, SK Gaming was able to find strength in their mid and late game. SK was able to take advantage of a scattered Fnatic team. Copenhagen Wolves went up against Supa Hot Crew, Supa Hot Crew continues to step up in plays. Supa Hot Crew’s Support player, Migxa, was key in their success against Copenhagen Wolves. ROCCAT took down Alliance after a long game with Alliance in the lead for much of it. Many fans cheered when Alliance’s Mid player Froggen picked Anivia for the game. Gambit Gaming and Millenium rounded out the first day, with Gambit Gaming overpowering Millenium in team fights and taking the victory.
Alliance and Supa Hot Crew opened up the second day. Again Migxa was a key player in Supa Hot Crew’s victory, setting up plays over and over on the champion Thresh while controlling the fights throughout the game. Fnatic played against Millenium and the aggression from Millenium worked out in their favor, pressuring Fnatic and swiping another victory from them. Copenhagen Wolves continued to lose out, this game against ROCCAT. Despite pressuring top lane and holding an early advantage against ROCCAT, Copenhagen Wolves did not scale into the late game as well as ROCCAT and lost out eventually to a superior team. Finally, SK Gaming took on Gambit Gaming, and pressured Gambit Gaming from early game, not letting them gain any advantages. With constant pressure from SK Gaming’s Jungler, Svenskeren on all lanes, SK Gaming built up advantages through kills and objectives and pushed out Gambit Gaming for the victory.
With the games finished up, ROCCAT now stands in first place of the EU standings at 9-3, followed by Gambit Gaming at 8-4, and Fnatic at 7-5. SK Gaming rose up to a fourth place tie with Supa Hot Crew at 6-6. Copenhagen Wolves, Alliance, and Millenium now tie for sixth place at 4-8.
The next EU LCS game starts on Thursday Feb. 20, at 10 am PT, as Millenium take on Copenhagen Wolves.
