The fifth week of LEC ended out with the top 4 teams.

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.

Team Vitality vs SK Gaming

Sett / Gragas / Ryze / Ezreal / Braum vs Aatrox / Sejuani / Azir / Miss Fortune / Nautilus

Vitality has picked up their first win of the season, denying themselves a 0-10 start in the Spring split season. Their set up was really good and even though SK Gaming had a worthy set-up to counter them, Vitality played better overall.

A fight near the Dragon sealed SK Gamings fate, while they were focused on the Dragon, Vitality teleported into SK’s base and finished the game.

Excel Esports – Schalke 04

Gankgplank / Karthus / Ornn / Xayah / Rakan vs Aatrox / Sejuani / Viktor / Miss Fortune/ Braum

Excel Esports is looking better with every week, their macro is much more improved and their draft is better. Schalke 04 is looking quite great as well after replacing Forg1ven with Innaxe. While the game was pretty close for both teams, Excel came out ahead in the end and managed to take the win against Schalke 04.

Still, Schalke 04 should be proud of themselves as they improved drastically.

Rogue vs Misfits Gaming

Aatrox / Jarvan / Azir / Ezreal / Yuumi vs Sett / Gragas / Zoe / Miss Fortune/ Pyke

Both teams fought for a spot at the top of the standings. While the draft from both teams looked great, Rogue was able to execute theirs better. A snowball on Ezreal early on allowed them to secure objectives and push for towers quite easily.

The fights for dragons were rough and both teams secured a couple of them before the Dragon Soul, which was not achieved by either team. Rogue came out ahead with their Ezreal in team fights and secured a win.

MAD Lions vs G2 Esports

Sett / Lee Sin / Le’Blanc / Kalista / Taric vs Aatrox / Sejuani / Sylas / Miss Fortune / Nautilus

G2 Esports have tried to default to comfort picks again, but were outplayed heavily by the MAD Lions squad. MAD Lions secured early objectives and pressured every lane from G2 Esports, denying them gold and experience.

The surprise Kalista pick was a decisive factor in MAD Lions win in this game.


               Origen vs Fnatic

Soraka / Rek’sai / Ryze / Miss Fortune / Nautilus vs Pantheon / Taliyah / Ornn / Aphelios / Thresh

Two top tier teams clashed with each other, but Fnatic emerged victoriously. A decisive factor was the Pantheon first-round pick, who carried the game for Fnatic.

Origen picked up only 2 towers out of all objectives, while Fnatic picked up 9 towers, 2 Rift Heralds, 1 Baron and 4 Dragons making it a complete stomp.

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