The break between LCS matches was a little longer this week: Europe is trying Friday and Saturday as its two LCS days this week. The schedule will return to the normal Thursday/Friday next week, but Week 9 (the final week of the regular season) will take place on Saturday and Sunday.
Friday will kick off with second-place Fnatic against struggling Vitality, but Vitality has reason for hope thanks to the strong play of jungler Ilyas "Shook" Hartsema in his first games since replacing Min-su "Mightybear" Kim. Also on Friday's schedule: third-place H2K vs. fourth-place Schalke and first-place G2 against a red-hot Giants Gaming team that has soared up to sixth.
You can see the full week's schedule here.
The games will be played on Patch 6.13, which brought changes to supports and nerfed some strong champions like Vladimir and Irelia. All games will be streamed live on the Lolesports website and on Youtube and Twitch (EULCS1and EULCS2).
