LEC Week 3 will start on the 29th of January. After measuring each other in the first two weeks that began on the 14th, the 10 League of Legends pro teams, which include Astralis, Excel Esports, Fnatic, G2 Esports, MAD Lions, Misfits Gaming, Rogue, SK Gaming, Team BDS, and Team Vitality, will continue to compete for a slot in the LEC Spring Playoffs and a share of the €200,000 prize pool.
The European league has already seen much action both before and during the onset of the group stage. While the teams remain the same as last year’s LEC Spring Season (except FC Schalke 04 Esports who sold their slot to Team BDS), some interesting roster changes are starting to produce obvious results. We’ve also yet to get the full lowdown on new hero Zeri.
Before the LEC Spring Season, Astralis signed Dajor and Kobbe, pro League players from Germany and Denmark respectively. Dajor has made his League of Legends LEC debut by replacing MagiFelix in the mid lane. Kobbe, on the other hand, took the role of Jeskla in the bot lane.
Given that Astralis currently stands 0-5 into the season, there’s a lot to prove for the team. However, this underwhelming performance may not be a result of the change since Astralis last year finished 9th in the same tournament.
On the 7th of January, Kryze left Excel Esports and was soon replaced by Finn. The 22-year-old top laner from Sweden who previously played for Counter Logic Gaming (CLG) was also a member of Rogue from 2019 to 2020 where he and his team made their way to the 2020 League of Legends World Championship and ended up in 13-16th placement.
In the bot lane, former G2 support player Mikyx swapped with Advienne, who is now moved to the inactive roster. Mikyx also played at the 2020 League of Legends World Championship with G2 but was later knocked out by DAMWON Gaming. They reached 3-4th placement.
At the moment, Excel Esports sits at 2-3, winning matches against SK Gaming and Team Vitality.
Fnatic is currently the top dog of the LEC Spring 2022. With a 5-0 standing, they continue to dominate this season’s League of Legends tournament and deliver promising results. Last year, Fnatic finished 14-16th at the 2020 World Championship, but after recent roster changes, fans are starting to buy into the team’s renewed spirit.
The young blood who contribute to Fnatic’s insane performance this season are Razork (Jungle) and Humanoid (Bot Lane), replacing Bwipo and Nisqy.
When G2 Esports failed to make it to the 2021 World Championship, the entire community was surprised. Since 2016 they’ve been one of the major League of Legends pro teams performing at the highest sphere of the game, and when that quality of play was threatened, a change was inevitable.
On the 3rd of December 2021, G2 Esports announced that three players would be joining their team: BrokenBlade on the top lane, Flakked on the bot lane, and Targamas as the support.
G2 Esports has currently won 3 games against Astralis, Excel Esports, and SK Gaming, and lost 2 games against MAD Lions and Team Vitality. G2 Esports will face Fnatic on the 30th of January, a highly anticipated match of rivalry that you can bet on by signing up for the best LoL bookmakers today.
After losing to DAMWON Gaming 0-3 in the 2021 World Championship, 2 previous members of MAD Lions—Carzzy and Humanoid—left the team. Their roles as a bot laner and mid laner were then taken by Reeker and UNF0RGIVEN, respectively.
The two new players have been playing in the competitive scene for more than 3 years, yet their LEC Spring Season debut could bring them the fame and recognition they’ve been looking for. MAD Lions has managed a decent 3-2 score in the tournament. In the last LEC Spring, the team ended up with 12 wins and 6 losses.
Misfits Gaming hasn’t been to the World Championship since 2017. During the last two League of Legends LEC Spring and Summer seasons, the team could only go as high as 4th place.
On December 22nd 2021, Misfits Gaming promoted Shlatan, who was previously a jungler of the subgroup Misfits Premier. They also announced that Neon (Bot Lane) and Marsa (Support) would be joining their team.
With their 3-2 score, Misfits Gaming is still showing a rather expected performance.
Next to Fnatic in the leaderboards comes Rogue, another team that currently has 5-0 under its belt. They’ve been a strong force at the European pro league for some time now, achieving a score of 14-4 in the last LEC Spring and 13-5 in the last LEC Summer, beating G2 Esports.
After the team finished 9-11th at the 2021 World Championship, 2 of its players, Inspired and Hans sama, left for Evil Geniuses and Team Liquid. They were replaced by Malrang (Jungle) from DAMWON Gaming and Comp (Bot Lane) from Team Vitality on the 16th of December. The team has maintained a top-tier performance since then.
SK Gaming signed Gilius (Jungle) and Sertuss (Mid Lane), replacing TynX and Blue. The team has always finished near the bottom during the previous LEC Spring and LEC Summer Seasons. Having only won 1 game out of 5, the pattern is yet to be broken.
Team BDS is the newest addition to the European League of Legends pro teams. On the 20th of December, they announced their roster for 2022, and it includes Adam, Cinkrof, NUCLEARINT, xMatty, and LIMIT (from top lane to support). They’re currently second to last with their 1-4 standing.
Team Vitality has only kept Selfmade as their jungler and Labrov as their support. With Alphari (Top Lane), Perkz (Mid Lane), and Carzzy (Bot Lane) making the team expensive, fans are expecting more than the 2-3 score they’ve managed so far.
