There’s no more hyped team in the LEC than G2 Esports, and cruising into week two the squad has kept their momentum fully intact.
Over the course of the past two weekends, the Worlds 2019 runners up have looked flawless. In week one they provided the proof of concept of their latest role swap, as both Luka “Perkz” Perković Rasmus “Caps” Borregaard Winther both seamlessly adapted to playing new positions on the mainstage.
As week two in the LEC rolled around though, some predicted a rapid fall from grace for Europe’s supposed top team. However, in their first game of the weekend against Team Vitality on Friday, January 31, the squad didn’t miss a beat. They rolled over Vitality in incredible fashion, dropping just a single death.
And Martin “Wunder” Nordahl Hansen could be forgiven for that death considering his choice of champion. The superstar top laner had been relegated to Soraka duty – a surprise pick that baffled their opponents.
These shock-and-awe tactics continued into the second day of games. Come February 1, G2 would once again brink out the Soraka top against Origen. The Origen side had been a topic of much discussion, with it’s seemingly revitalised roster just not living up to the hype.
And against G2, they would continue to underperform. Although the team would be able to pick up multiple kills against G2, Origen would ultimately be unable to defeat their opponents. Mainly because of the incredible standard of play that G2 is currently displaying.
G2 is set to face Rogue and Fnatic next week. Rogue currently stands at a respectable 3-1 record, as do Fnatic. Based on current records alone, this will be G2’s most significant challenge yet.
The LEC is live from Friday, February 7, at 17:00 GMT on the official Twitch channel. Keep your eyes peeled on Dartfrog for all the latest League of Legends news and analysis on our Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitch.
