League of Legends LCS has a completely new format for the new season. As you probably already know, teams will be separated into two different groups, playing twice against teams in their group and once against the organizations from the opposite group. A lot of roster changes have already happened, guaranteeing us one incredible new season in the world of League of Legends. In our EU LCS Teams Preview, we will take a look at the both groups, with their favorites and underdogs. Surely, one incredible season is ahead of all League of Legends bettors!
Group A of European LCS consists some of the best teams in the world. Fnatic and G2 Esports will surely be the favorites of the group, while teams like ROCCAT and Giants will try to secure their spots in next season of LCS. Spring will be really intense with that new format and some surprises are not excluded. Let’s start with a little overview of the EU LCS Teams for 2017.
Fnatic ended at the prestigious 3rd place in the last Spring Split of EU LCS. After some crucial changes in the lineup, the Swedish organization will try to improve its performance and secure a spot in Summer split and Worlds finals as well. Martin “Rekkles” Larsson is the only player left from the last season, and he will have to incorporate the rest of the team style. The former Origen duo – Soaz and Amazing, along with Caps from Dark Passage and Jezis from Immortals complete the Fnatic roster for EU LCS Spring Split. With a lot of potential, the performance of the team will be really enjoyable to watch.
G2 Esports is one of the few teams which kept their roster for the new season of EU LCS. This is completely understandable after incredible gaming showed by PerkZ and company in the previous season and Worlds finals. It only remains to be seen whether the team’s performance will continue to ascend in 2017.
Misfits’ presence in the world of gaming will be incredible in 2017. With the new CS: GO team and updated roster in League of Legends plus a partnership with the basketball giant the Miami Heat, the European organization has a lot of potential unfolding this year. For the new season in EU LCS, Misfits added to their line up former Origen player PowerOfEvil, along with the South Korean jungler KaKAO.
Team ROCCAT has been a permanent member of European LCS for 4 consecutive years. Last season, they managed to beat the Germans from Shalke04 to secure their spot among EU LCS Teams. The organization did not betray its policy and transferred four new recruits for the upcoming Spring Split. Among all the new signings, most impressive is the South Korean support Bae-in “Wadid” Kim, who will try to form a strong duo with Hjärnan, the former Vitality player .
The Giants ended the season with 20 championship points from the Summer Split in 2016. With new jungler, top, and ADC players, the team hopes to improve their performance and win more thanks to the new LCS format.
The second group will also bring us some incredible battles. With Splyce and H2K as favorites, among with new roster of teams Origen , UOL, and Vitality, we expect some intense matches and unpredictable finishes of the Spring Split. Let’s move on to the EU LCS Teams Preview of group B:
Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski and Andrie “Odoamne” Pascu have the mission of teaching the team’s strategy and gaming style to the new players. H2k won 4th place in the 2016 Worlds finals and that was something pretty incredible. So the pressure on the team for the upcoming season will be bigger, as well as the expectations from of the all European fans. However, the organization will be one of the favorites for the winner of the Summer Split, and we wait with interest to see what will happen.
Splyce is another strong competitor for the winner of Group B and the Summer Split. The organization kept all of the players from the 2016 roster, who brought a tons of good results to the team. As one of the three European teams at the Worlds finals, Splyce’s performance was a bit disappointing. Now, players are determined to improve their results and win more at the League of Legends Worlds Finals.
With a completely new line up and Enrique “xPeke” Cedeño Martínez in the managing role, Origen is one of the most interesting teams in this year’s Spring Split. The Origen roster is combining players from teams Epsilon, Misfits, Millenium, Team Forge, and Team KungFu. Five new players, from five different teams. That is something spectacular. xPeke’s sense of the game is unique and it will be great to see how he will manage to train and advise this completely new roster to turn them into a European dominance.
UOL added Dark Passage’s Xerxe and former Giants player Samux to their active team roster. This international team will try to secure a spot for the Summer Split and make the life of the favorites pretty tough.
The French eSports organization have some really good plans for the future. They ended both Spring and Summer Splits in the middle of the standing. The organization is committed to improving the performance in 2017 and believes that by bringing Djoko, Hachani, and Steelback, that will happen.
