Week six in the EU LCS yielded some surprising results - from the highs of UoL beating then table leaders SK Gaming, despite their somewhat dubious starting headwear, swiftly followed by UoL’s loss to MYM on day 2, giving MYM their second win of the split. As for the league standings - Fnatic finished the week knocking table leaders SK Gaming from the first place spot with the teams now tied at 9-3, with H2K Gaming ending week 2 sitting just behind after claiming two wins over Roccat and Giants Gaming. Week 6 also saw more roster changes for Elements with Mitch “Krepo” Voorspiels taking the place of Patrick “Nyph” Funke as support. Konstantinos “FORG1VENGRE” Tzortziou-Napoleon still claims the crown for top KDA with a KDA of 13.6, trailed by Fnatic’s Pierre “Steeelback” Medjaldi on 9.1.
This week's top 3 fantasy LCS performers from EU all came from the Pr0lly coached H2K Gaming, with Odoamne finishing on 65.65 points, Hjarnan finishing on 63.99 points and Loulex rounding off the trio with a finishing score of 60.26 points.

Game Summaries

Day 1

GIA v FNC - FNC
Fnatic took a convincing win from Giants Gaming this week, after a relatively equal start, with Steeelback’s Kalista and YellOwStaR’s Alistar particularly shining with scores of 7-2-5 and 0-1-13 respectively. The win helped equalise Fnatic with SK Gaming and the teams are now tied for first position.
UoL v SK - UoL
UoL took a somewhat surprising but well deserved victory over SK Gaming - a 21 minute baron call fell in their favour with SK Gamings third inhibitor falling by 26 minutes, giving UoL a convincing win over one of the splits strongest teams.
ROC v H2K - H2K
H2K Gaming took the game at 34 minutes with a massive 13k gold lead at 15 kills to Roccat’s 6. H2K’s objective control seems stronger than ever with the team taking all 4 drakes, 9 turrets and the baron buff from Roccat. Odoamne particularly shone this game with 100% kill participation. Pr0lly has been hailed as the cause for the teams turnaround and fans and hoping for more definitive wins over the next 3 weeks.
Elements v MYM - EL
The Elements versus MYM game gave us our first surrender of the split, with MYM choosing to surrender at 35 minutes to Elements. Krepo’s debut saw the team take 4 drakes to none and 7 turrets to MYM’s zero, proving the team are capable of decent objective control. We also heard post match commentary from Martin “Rekkles” Larsson on how he feels their new bot lane is now stronger and more synergised thanks to Krepo’s play making support playstyle.
GMB v CHW - GMB
Copenhagen Wolves originally took the lead with First Blood on Cabochard and an initial gold lead plus the first drake, collapsing into mid lane at just 12 minutes to take their first turret. However CW fell off during the mid game and Gambit turned the game around to take yet another victory. Betsy gave Gambit fans yet another impressive mid lane performance with a score of 5-1-7, proving his value as he tries to fill the shoes of Gambits main mid laner Niq, who is currently on sick leave. Diamond also put on an impressive jungle performance with a finishing score of 2-0-12.

Day 2

H2K v GIA - H2K
H2K gained yet another victory making their record 6-0 since taking on support KaSing. Bot and mid lanes for H2K really shone with Ryu on a pre-nerf Kassadin finding a huge 13 kills in the first game of the day. Again H2K Gaming’s team fighting was incredibly strong and their snowball proved just too much for Giants Gaming to handle, pushing Giants Gaming into 8th place in the split.
FNC v CHW - FNC
Fnatic took a win from CHW just in time after CHW managed to obtain 4 drakes. With this win Fnatic also managed to avoid auto-relegation and now cannot finish below 9th place this split. The news is huge for Fnatic considering their massive roster changes in the pre-season with 4 out of 5 players being replaced. New blood Huni put on yet another strong Rumble performance and Febiven proved Ezreal’s worth as a mid laner with a finishing score of 7-1-6.
SK v Elements - SK
SK Gaming also secured their place in the auto relegation free zone after winning versus the new Elements line up and ending their 3 game lose streak. SK were back to their strong form around objectives securing all three drakes of the game and taking a massive 11-2 kills. SK also destroyed 8 turrets whilst Elements only managed to take 1 in what turned into a crushing defeat for the team. FORG1VENGRE seems back to his usual “immortal” form taking home a score of 3-0-6, much to the approval of FORG1VENGRE fantasy LCS fans!
GMB v ROC - GMB
After a close game Gambit took victory, much attributed to jungler Diamond making intelligent engages and preventing Roccat from gaining their fifth drake and the “Aspect of the Dragon” buff. Gambits ADC P1noy proved Tristana’s worth with a score of 5-1-7 with his support Edward picking up an impressive score of 0-1-12 on Janna. Gambit are now on a 7-0 streak and fans are beginning to question - can the team beat the standing Fnatic record of 9 wins in a row?
UoL v MYM - MYM
The final game of the week shattered all estimations with MYM taking their second win of the split. Fans were certain UoL would take the win thanks to their victory over SK Gaming the day before and with MYM’s lacklustre record this split so far. MYM top laner Jwaow and MYM ADC MrRallez both put in fantastic performances with scores of 8-3-8 and 7-2-7 respectively helping to carry their team to their second victory of the split. The question that now stands is whether MYM can battle their way out of the auto relegation zone and secure their LCS spot at the end of this split.

Summary

In conclusion this week has been exciting and quite the shake up, we enter week 7 eagerly awaiting performances from Elements to see how new top laner Kev1n and support Krepo are fitting into the team. The battle between SK Gaming and Fnatic continues to rage for first place in the split and all eyes are looking at MYM to see whether the team can pull it together after the morale boost of their victory over UoL and begin climbing their way back up the ladder and out of the relegation zone before the split draws to a close.
