Esports News – The 2020 League of Legends European Championship (LEC) is now on its 4th week. As the competition gets tougher, only the strongest LoL teams remain. Most of the heavy favorites are still in the game, and all eyes are on G2 Esports and Fnatic—the European rivalry that set the record for the most-watched LEC Event of 2020.
The Split battle between G2 Esports and Fnatic is not just the most-watched LEC event. The match also nearly reached the peak viewership of the 2019 Spring Split finals. G2 defeated Fnatic and by the time they faced Origen in the last match of the week, LEC’s peak viewership stayed at 477,000. It just shows that G2 and Fnatic have some of the most devoted fans in the world.
Riot expects to see an even higher viewership count on LEC’s week 7 where G2 and Fnatic will have their rematch. Week 7 will feature the final games that will give Europe its spots for the Mid-Season Invitational 2020.
G2 defeated every European team in the LoL tournament. The team will continue its pace as an unbeatable team with a 6-0 record on Week 4. Every other European team didn’t stand a chance, but Fnatic, G2’s rival and one of the best European teams in the world, gave the dominating team one hell of a fight in a BO1 match.
G2 drew first blood in the bot lane after Fnatic started the game aggressively. Fnatic’s Zdravets “Hylissang” Iliev Galabov and Martin “Rekkles” Larsson cornered G2’s Mihael “Mikyx” Mehle, but Martin “Wunder” Hansen came to the rescue. Wunder took his first kill on Rekkles. Rasmus “Caps” Winther then entered the battle to secure a double kill on Hylissang.
Fnatic instantly responded, taking a double kill on bot lane. Tim “Nemesis” Lipovšek and Oskar “Selfmade” Boderek outsmarted Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski and Caps. To prevent them from dominating half of the game, Wunder and Perkz positioned themselves on Fnatic’s jungle and top lane. Fnatic’s members failed to catch them as G2 had a 5k gold lead. Fnatic lost their chance to secure a baron and the fourth dragon. G2 closed out the game in over 30 minutes.
