The seventh week of LEC started with some tragic circumstances.

With the entire world starting to suffer from the coronavirus it was unclear if LEC will continue going forward.

Vitality vs Rogue

Renekton / Lee sin / Syndra / Xayah / Rakan vs Sett / Gragas / Azir / Kalista / Nautilus

Vitality picked a very mean composition, but Rogue had the perfect answer to it. Every lane was shut down by Rogue’s picks and the draft was won by them. Vitality started with a small lead and managed to pick up the first Dragon, but Rogue started snowballing off their higher CS numbers and grouped to take other objectives. 24 minutes into the game and Rogue easily ended the game after absolute domination over Vitality.

Schalke 04 vs MAD Lions

Aatrox / Gragas / Azir / Aphelios / Nautilus vs Sett / Karthus / Corki / Miss Fortune / Braum

Schalke 04 have been constantly improving after replacing Forg1ven who quit mid Spring Split with their academy ADC, Innaxe. Even though it’s too late for them to make a come back in the Spring Split, they are looking much stronger going into the Summer Split. Regardless of that, MAD Lions managed to dominate them, the rookies who replaced the Splyce squad are looking great together and are locked for playoffs.

SK Gaming vs Fnatic

Karma / Lee sin / Le’Blanc / Aphelios / Braum vs Gankgplank / Gragas / Lulu / Miss Fortune / Zac

Selfmade played against his former team, who are looking way weaker compared to the previous split. Fortunate for Selfmade, he fits amazingly well into this Fnatic roster. They had total dragon control from 3rd drake onwards to obtain the Infernal Dragon Soul. With it Fnatic was able to secure Baron and push to win against SK Gaming who had no possibilities to reply.

Excel Esports vs Misfits Gaming

Renekton / Gragas / Pantheon / Senna / Galio vs Aatrox / Sejuani / Akali / Aphelios / Braum

Misfits Gaming is on fire this season. The veteran Febiven alongside the four rookies is locked in for playoffs, while Excel Esports are out of playoff contention. They lost most objectives but still managed to win in the end. Bvoy’s Aphelios was a joy to watch, he was so good on the pick and carried his team to victory.

Origen vs G2 Esports

Gangplank / Zac / Orianna / Aphelios / Nautilus vs Sett / Lee sin / Ekko / Ezreal / Braum

G2 Esports went all out this game with comfort picks for everyone. Origen picked up a strong setup as well, but they were unable to execute it. The pressure from G2 Esports was too big. Caps on his signature Ezreal pick absolutely demolished the team of OG, after picking up an early kills in the bot lane.

That is all for  Week 7, Day 1 coverage of LEC 2020, stay tuned for more in the upcoming days.
