The first week of EU LCS action was short on surprises. G2, Fnatic, H2K and Unicorns of Love all escaped with unbeaten series records, while new teams Ninjas in Pyjamas and Mysterious Monkeys struggled to 0-2 records.
The gap was bigger in Group B than Group A — in Group B, the top two teams are a combined 6-0, while the bottom three? 0-6. Fnatic holds an early lead in Group A thanks to two sweeps in the first week, but 1-0 G2 stands waiting in their first series of the week.
The action starts off first with a pair of teams who struggled in Week 1, as Misfits take on NiP. Thursday’s G2 vs. Fnatic clash may be the highlight of the week, but there’s also Vitality head coach Jakob “YamatoCannon” Mebdi facing his old team Splyce on Friday and a marquee Group B matchup Sunday between UOL and H2K.
