The League of Legends The European Championship Spring 2022 just started this year, but the lower-divisions have taken the lead — and some of the favorites haven’t had a good start to the tournament.
Before the European tournament started, Team Vitality was considered one of the favorites on paper. However, after the end of the first week’s games, the situation does not look good for the super team, who are yet to get their first win in the tournament. They lost to MAD Lions on Friday, to Fnatic on Saturday and to Excel Esports today.
In today’s 38-minute match, both teams enjoyed a calm start to the game with no lives until the sixth minute, when Patrick took down the opposing AD carry. Excel then scored the first dragon of the match, but Vitality top laner Alphari secured a solo kill by Finn Jayce to equalize the initial kill difference.
Both teams traded kills in a few skirmishes, but Excel came out on top in most of these exchanges. Vitality defended the second dragon of the match, but Excel won the next major skirmish near the targets and won three more dragons. With Infernal Soul, Excel takes complete control of the game.
Even with a significant lead, Excel did not lose his temper and did not have unnecessary fights with his opponent. As a result, Vitality had to compete for the same goals as Baron, and the Excel players outperformed them. After obtaining the Baron buff, Excel pushed back the lines and took out two tier two turrets. The final skirmish occurred near the Elder Dragon as Vitality had to gain the objective to turn the fate of the match. They secured the goal, but that wasn’t enough to win.
Excel was leading in spreads and golden experience, and they were forced to fight against Vitality. Then Excel dashed towards the base and took out the Nexus comfortably to give Vitality their third disappointment of the week.
The first week of the LEC Spring Split ends today, but the second week will begin again on January 21. Vitality will attempt to break their losing streak when facing Team BDS at 2pm on Monday. Six.
