As we enter the final week of the Summer Split, there is still plenty left to fight for in EU LCS. After a 4-0 week, our team has automatically secured a spot at the European finals, which will take place next month in Kraków, Poland. Splyce also have one foot in the semi-finals as they currently have a four-point cushion over fnatic, who will face our team on the final day of the Split.
In week 8, there were three teams – G2 Esports, Giants and Splyce – winning both matches, so it is no surprise to see players from these sides leading the charts. Lennart “Smittyj” Warkus and Son “S0NSTAR” Seung-ik were among the top performers and top gold earners in the league, with Splyce’s Jonas “Trashy” Andersen also putting in big numbers for the third week in a row.
Looking at the champion pool, we can see once again just how powerful Nidalee is in the current meta as the Bestial Huntress was the most banned champion in the league for the third consecutive week. Gragas and Sivir were the two most picked champions in the league, alongside Lucian.
