MAD Lions maul G2 in LEC final game opening weekend, tied for second in the league
In today’s final match in the LEC, G2 Esports used the services of Rogue Sentinel, the resident of Runeterra, in a battle against the MAD Lions. Unfortunately for them, though, Akshan wasn’t enough to stem the tide of European pride.
Both teams are from opposite sides of the coin today League of Legends game. MAD looks set to bounce back from a disappointing 55-minute match against SK Gaming, while G2 is on a run of wins over Excel Esports and Astralis. Momentum sided with the samurais, but the Lions had different ideas about how the whole game would play out.
In terms of drafts, G2 has set themselves a timer for victory by not only picking Akshan but also Kassadin in the mid lane. Void Walker is at his most powerful when he reaches level 16, which forces MADs to ramp up and keep playing so their opponents are unstoppable enough for Caps to become an issue.
With champions like Ornn, Thresh, and Jarvan IV, MAD pressed G2 as much as possible by finding and starting fights immediately. The team’s rookie AD carry UNF0RGIVEN also had a day on the field alongside his strong frontline, picking up a whopping seven kills and three deaths. The 21-year-old Swede also won the Player of the Year award for his efforts.
Looking at the rankings, G2, MAD, and Misfits Gaming are all in second place with a 2-1 record, while Fnatic and Rogue remain the only teams that haven’t lost. Next week, fans could see teams split up a bit more as teammates settle into new environments and teams build more synergy.
Get both of these teams into action when they return to Summoner’s Rift next week. The LEC resumes Friday, January 21.
