Watch Fnatic vs H2K: EU LCS Playoffs 3rd Place Live Stream

Watch Fnatic vs H2K Streaming Live Saturday!

 

I was surprised last week when Origen came out on top of H2K. Despite having the best AD Carry in the world, one of the stronger midlaners in League of Legends history, and a jungler who outperformed his Origen counterpart for most of the Spring Split, H2K fell short two games to three against xPeke’s Origen squad. It was exhausting just watching the match, which lasted nearly six hours, so I imagine H2K has had to take some very real rest to clear their heads. I’ll be curious to see if they can bounce back against Fnatic.

Fnatic has had some moments of greatness this split, including some flashy play against Team Vitality in the LCS Quarterfinals. Jungler Lee “Spirit” Da-yun and support Johan “Klaj” Olsson seem have particularly stepped up their game coming into the playoffs. Fnatic got pretty well rolled over by EU frontrunners G2 Esports last weekend, which didn’t surprise me, but I think they’ve got some fight in them yet.

The importance of this Third Place match goes well beyond pride. The winner will be granted 20 additional World Championship Circuit Points, which will accumulate to establish seeding and qualifier invitations for League of Legends’ biggest event this fall. Since both of these teams can realistically expect to be in contention for a top spot in the LCS once again next season, they should be playing as hard as they can to put themselves in a good position to make it to Worlds.

The obvious key match-up to watch in this series for me is the battle of the AD Carries. H2K’s Konstantinos “FORG1VEN” Tzortziou has enjoyed a reputation as the best in the world at his position, but despite putting up huge CS numbers last week he looked out-of-sync with his teammates, and was caught several times out of position. Fnatic’s Martin “Rekkles” Larsson has left and re-joined the team several times, displacing multiple ADC’s who have taken Fnatic on successful runs to Worlds. There’s no doubt that Rekkles has tremendous talent, but he’ll have prove his value once again this week to keep his team in the running for a World Championship trip of his own.
