G2 Esports beat Fnatic to win LEC Summer Split

After an extremely intense best-of-five G2 Esports has officially beaten Fnatic to be crowned the winners of the Summer Split Finals. G2 Esports are now comfortably locked in as Europe’s first seed heading into the upcoming League of Legends World Championship.

Taking place at the Nikos Galis Olympic Indoor Hall in Athens both G2 and Fnatic put on quite the show for the audience, which included a packed full game 5 series. Despite the final 3-2 score in favour of G2, Fnatic showed strength in the series by matching G2 in every lane.

During the post-game interview, G2’s Luka “Perkz” Perković had much praise for his competitors:

“Its a lot of mixed feelings, which is normal when we win. There is a lot of things I regret a bit about our preparation and in-game play. In another way, it feels very good to be challenged and its a lot more fun. I think we all as a team strive to, like Wunder says, 3-0 our opponents. We don’t want to go 3-2 or have a close final. Fnatic is the best team I have played against, I think. They are really good, especially Rekkles and Hylissang. They are the best players I have played against in the bot lane so far. I have played against a lot of international bot lanes and they are a lot better than them. It says a lot for Europe and im really hyped for Worlds.”

Luka “Perkz” Perković and Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski both achieved big milestones during the series with both players securing their 1,000th career kills. Perkz ended the series with 1,023 kills and Jankos was just behind him on 1,012. However, the accolades for Jankos didn’t stop there as he also received both the LEC 2019 Summer MVP and the KIA Player of the Game. 

During the post-game interview, Jankos commented: “I think we came more prepared when it came to the draft, but there was a few things we didn’t expect and thats why I think we lost those two games. I think in those Fnatic played better as a team and we played poorly. I think Fnatic is a great team and it was a very difficult series.”

According to viewership tracking information from Esports Charts more than 840,000 League of Legends fans tuned in to see G2 Esports lift the trophy. This is double the number of viewers who watched G2 Esports go head-to-head against Fnatic previously during Playoffs.

Both G2 Esports and Fnatic will now be heading to the League of Legends World Championship which kicks off at the beginning of October. The third European team is still to be decided with the regional qualifiers taking place this Friday 13th September. Origen, Splyce and FC Schalke 04 are among the teams who will go head-to-head for the final spot.
