The 2019 Spring Split for the League of Legends European Championship Series (LEC) is officially over. The Finals took place on April 14 in Rotterdam, ending with a solid victory for G2 Esports in their match against Origen. They won 3-0, a clean sweep.
G2’s roster consisted of Martin “Wunder” Hansen, Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski, Rasmus “Caps” Winther, Luka "Perkz” Perkovic, and Mihael “Mikyx” Mehle. Through an astounding display of flexibility, G2 dominated Origen during the Finals. They showcased their ability to play any character with expert handling.
Origen’s team, comprised of Barney “Alphari” Morris, Erlend “Nukeduck” Holm, Patrik “Patrik” Jiru, Alfonso “Mithy” Rodriguez, and Jonas “Kold” Anderson, came into the Finals with a win on their shoulders. Despite a moderate performance during the play-offs, they swept Team Fnatic away during the Semifinals, 3-1. They entered the Finals with strong footing.
However, Origen was no match for G2 Esports. It was clear from the very first game that G2 had more control in the lanes and more coordination among its team members than Origen did. During the third and final match, G2 was able to claim victory in under twenty minutes.
With this win, G2 Esports has secured itself a spot to compete in the 2019 League of Legends Mid-Season Invitational. If they continue to perform as admirably as they have during the 2019 LEC Spring Split, they could see themselves competing in the League of Legends World Championship.
