The fifth week of LEC was great.

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.

MAD Lions vs Misfits Gaming

Gankgplank / Lee sin / Ryze / Miss Fortune / Rakan vs Sett / Sejuani / Azir / Aphelios / Braum

Misfits Gaming have cemented themselves as a top tier LEC team. They picked a great comp and executed it perfectly. While the rookies of MAD Lions tried to put up a good fight, Misfits Gaming overpowered them. They have picked up 2 rift heralds, 3 dragons and 1 baron to be able to finish the game.

Vitality vs Schalke 04

Ornn / Lee sin / Zoe / Kai’sa / Nautilus vs Aatrox / Rek’sai / Viktor / Aphelios / Braum

Schalke seems to have improved their gameplay drastically after replacing Forg1ven with Innaxe. Their draft was very good against the composition of Vitality and they executed it quite well as well.  While the game was full of misplays, Schalke 04 look much more confident in their plays.

A dragon Soul and a Baron later and Schalke picked up the easy win.

G2 Esports vs Excel

Aatrox / Karthus / Ornn / Miss Fortune / Leona vs Sett / Gragas / Vayne / Varus / Nautilus

G2 got revenge for the last week. After finishing 0-2 they remade their draft to a safer one with comfortable picks and executed it perfectly. The combination of Karthus with Miss Fortune was deadly, Miss Fortune was poking down everyone with ult and then Karthus was finishing with a good timed ultimate.

A dragon soul and a Baron later and G2 Esports picked up their first win of the week.

Origen vs SK Gaming

Gankgplank / Nidalee / Ornn / Miss Fortune / Nautilus vs Vladimir / Karthus / Sett / Ezreal / Tahm Kench

Origen drafted to counterpick the first pick Karthus. Their team composition was perfect against the kill-seeking jungler.  The team played well overall and is looking much better compared to the previous year. The upgraded jungler alongside the bottom lane makes Origen a top tier team.

SK Gaming, on the other hand, looked lost and was unable to execute their composition properly.

               Rogue vs Fnatic

Kled / Lee Sin / Syndra / Xayah / Leona vs Zac / Rek’sai / Ornn / Ezreal / Rakan

More and more teams are picking up the Ornn mid lane, who is a highly contested pick in the current meta. The strong kit combined with the free items makes him an extremely powerful pick.

Fnatic brought out a surprise Zac pick in the top lane as well to counter Kled, which worked out perfectly. The draft combined with the gameplay net Fnatic their first win of the week.

That is all for  Week 5, Day 1 coverage of LEC 2020, stay tuned for more in the upcoming days.
