LoL: EU LCS round up
G2 Esports have finished first in the 2016 EU LCS Spring Split with a 15-3 record after Friday’s victory over Unicorns of Love, and will be seeded directly into the semifinals of the playoffs.
G2 Esports are new to the LCS this season, and qualified through the 2016 EU LCS Spring Promotion tournament after defeating SK Gaming 3-2. Once in the LCS, the team shuffled their roster and added Kim “Trick” Gang-yun as jungler and Kim “Emperor” Jin-hyun as AD carry.
Joining them in the semifinals is H2k-Gaming, who finished the split with a 14-4 record after beating Elements on Friday.
Immediately below them are the quarterfinals teams. Third-place Team Vitality will face off against sixth-place Fnatic, while fourth-place Origen will play against fifth-place UoL.
In seventh, Elements’s 6-12 records prevents them from making the playoffs, but ensures they can play in the upcoming Summer Split. The three bottom-placed teams, Splyce, Team ROCCAT and Giants Gaming, have been relegated to a Promotion Tournament where they will compete with the top two Spring Challenger Series teams.
Giants Gaming will play Copenhagen Wolves on March 24, with the winner facing off against Splyce on March 26. The winner of that match will qualify for the Summer Split, while the loser will play against the loser of ROCCAT’s qualification match against Team Huma on March 27 for the final spot in the LCS.
The 2016 EU LCS Spring Playoffs run from March 2-17 and the Grand Finals will be played in the Rotterdam Ahoy arena in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
