Disappointing season for Fnatic
Fnatic is among the best LoL teams last year—maybe even the current best team in the pro scene. But, 2019 was the opposite for Fnatic. They haven’t won a single game after the semifinals of the 2018 LoL World Championship. Some say that the addition of their former midlaner, Rasmus “Caps” Winther, was the problem, but it’s still inconclusive since Caps, who now plays for G2 Esports, is one of the top performing players in the split. The rest of the lineup remains under observation.
G2 Esports and the Karthus Jungle
Karthus Jungle is one of the top jungler options this season. G2 Esports is aware of this and now takes advantage of the champion. They picked it twice for Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski in week 1, and the rest of the players followed this strategy with impressive options. Jankos played Ivern, Martin “Wunder” Hansen chose Karma, and Mihael “Mikyx” Mehle played Rakan. This led to G2’s strategic decision to shield the team against Karthus’ R Requiem. With these undefeated tactics and strategies, it is safe to conclude that G2 Esports can defend their current position for the next few weeks.
FC Schalke 04 as 2nd best team in Europe
FC Schalke 04 garnered a 2-0 tally after week 2, cementing themselves on 2nd place. Their only loss this season was their match against G2 Esports. And they’ve defeated Team Vitality, the same team who gave Misfits Gaming their first defeat this season. The most impressive performances of FC Schalke 04 involve rookie mid laner, Felix “Abbedagge” Braun. He played impressively well against SK Gaming’s current midlaner, Choi “Pirean” Jun-sik.
