The third week of LEC ended out with a bang between two top tier teams, G2 Esports and Fnatic.

While the top 4 is clear between Origen/G2 Esports/Fnatic/Rogue, the bottom tier teams standings are unclear. Schalke is the only team to be the indisputed 10th place for now.

FC Schalke 04 vs SK Gaming

Aatrox / Rek’Sai / Rumble / Miss Fortune / Thresh vs Ornn / Lee Sin / Mordekaiser / Senna / Nautilus

Schalke did not find themselves yet, they are currently 0-6 after three weeks.  They were unable to win a single game. While they did get a Rift Herald and a dragon this game, SK Gaming got a Rift Herald, 2 Barons, 4 Dragons and was on their way to get Elder Dragon as well.

Crownshot is adapting to his new teammates quite well, after losing Selfmade to Fnatic he seems to have good synergy with his jungler. SK Gaming managed to win the game without problems in 32 minutes.

Excel Esports – Team Vitality

Cho’gath / Rek’sai / Lissandra / Varus / Thresh vs Gangplank / Lee sin / Le’Blanc / Varus / Braum

Excel Esports are slowly building to be one of the top 4 teams in Europe. With Youngbuck as their coach, they seem to improve dramatically over the season. While some plays were shaky this game, Mickey on Lissandra has been phenomenal in carrying his team to victory alongside Cho’Gath and Varus.

While Schalke seems hopeless, Vitality seems to try in their games, they’ll most likely crawl out of the bottom of the standings. Unfortunately for them, they were not able to win the game against Excel Esports, but they put a great fight.

Rogue vs MAD Lions

Rogue got outplayed by Soraka top lane twice in the span of 24 hours. While yesterday they got rolled over by G2 Esports Soraka top lane, today they got rolled over by MAD Lions Soraka top lane. The champion is busted right now and a hotfix is required to remove her from solo lanes. Professional players warned about this when some top lane changes were announced. With the role of becoming less impactful, players would start picking supportive champions more.

Even though Rogue played well for most of the game, Soraka’s heal denied all their plays and they fell to her pressure eventually.

Misfits vs Origen

Aatrox / Gragas / Diana / Xayah / Rakan vs Mordekaiser / Elise / Qiyana / Aphelios / Thresh


Misfits pulled an upset against Origen after starting the season quite shaky. While Origen was considered a top 3 team, Misfits were considered a bottom 3 team. Regardless of this, Misfits heavily improved and started winning more recently.

A series of smart objective trading and aggressive flashes allowed Misfits to get a lot of pressure on Origen and push to win without issues.

               G2 Esports vs Fnatic

Aatrox / Elise / Ryze / Senna / Braum vs Gangplank / Lee Sin / Veigar / Aphelios / Nautilus

The game started quite rough for G2 Esports, Lee sin alongside Gangplank invaded Elise and she was forced to back to another camp. But this did not set them back quite hard, G2 was prepared for this and adapted.

Elise went to camp bot side and secure a big advantage for Senna, who gets insane scaling from every single small advantage. With bot lane snowballed, they were able to secure dragons, towers and eventually baron with no pressure. With objectives under their belt, G2 Esports pushed to win.

That is all for  Week 3 coverage of LEC 2020, stay tuned for more in the upcoming days.
