G2 Smashes Through LEC Playoffs

This is proving to be yet another great year for G2 Esports, after a historic win against Rouge, in the final game of the League Of Legends European Championship 2022 Spring play-offs. Moreover, this win saw G2 being crowned champions of Europe for a record 9th time and solidifying their position as the most decorated team in the history of the tournament.

 

After defeating longtime rivals Fnatic 3-0 in a thrilling, one-sided semi-final clash, G2 Esports carried their momentum straight into the finals. With such a boost of confidence, and a star-studded team, G2 was simply no match for Rouge, and the latter was quickly dispatched 3-0 to end their hopes of lifting the European Championship Trophy. Are you jealous of G2 yet? Don’t worry, you can have your placement matches played by a professional and always place on the top!

 

To make the victory even sweeter for G2, they played these play-offs finals in front of a live crowd. Quite different from when they lost last year's final, which was played during the height of the Coronavirus pandemic. Whether having the presence of the crowd had any effect on the team is anyone's guess, but they certainly appreciated having their fans cheering them on.

 

The LEC Spring Finals Game

 

In typical G2 fashion, the team started the game with the confidence and single-mindedness that fans have come to expect from them. Right from the start, Rouge was in trouble. G2 started the game on the red side, and immediately ran the tried and tested Ahri-Jarvan IV combination that they used, to overwhelming success, against Fnatic in the series semifinal.

 

Rouge tried to counter with a matching mid lane but their inability to control the bot lane proved to be their undoing. G2 Esports' rookie starlet duo of Raphael "Targamas" Crabbe and Victor "Flakked" Lilora were just too good at controlling the bot lane for Rogue, and G2 was able to secure a quick succession of fights.

 

The Rouge Comeback

 

There was a ray of hope for Rouge in game three, which they started very well. They had 12 minutes of complete domination thanks to the heroics of Malrang, who went on an impressive killing spree.

 

Things looked good for team Rouge until Targamas rallied with a moment of magic for G2. His quick and brutal triple kill put a stop to Rouge's advance and suddenly G2 was back in control. On the other hand, with ranked win boosting services you’d never have to worry about losing a game again!

 

Trust in CaPs

 

G2 Esports legend caPs proved once again why he is such an important player for the team. The 2022 Spring playoffs was yet another chance to prove why he is widely regarded as one of the best to ever play the game.

 

His complete domination of games on Ahri was a pleasure to witness, for example when he destroyed Rogue with an 8/0/4 (kill/death/assist) ratio, which earned him the MVP award. You can now experience what it feels like playing with a mid-laner who completely outclasses the opposition by signing up for a DuoQueue boosting service.

 

Conclusion

 

Next up for G2 Esports is the 2022 Mid-Season Invitational where they will battle it out with 10 other teams for the crown. G2 will be joined by some of the best teams around, such as the Istanbul Wildcats, and DetoNatioN FocusMe, as they set forth to reclaim the title in Busan, Korea. Judging by their performances in Europe, G2 should fancy their chances against the Asian giants.

Meanwhile the equivalent NA organization TSM is struggling with several problems as they don’t only place at the bottom of the LCS but also get backlash for internal issues.
