G2 Esports will miss the worlds League of Legends Championship for the first time since forming. This year Fnatic have taken their place. After tonnes of build up hype and a best-of-five series no one could ever predict, Fnatic beat G2 Esports 3-2 to join Rogue and MAD Lions representing the EU at Worlds this year.

MAD Lions won the LEC title in what was the first EU final not to have Fnatic or G2. If this isn’t signed enough the times are changing the two most decorated EU teams fought it out for the last Worlds spot in the losers’ bracket.

The entire series was an absolute joy to watch with it going back and forth regardless of Fnatic dictating the pace of the early game. G2 looked very close to finishing the series 3-1 but Fnatic had other plans turning Game 4 into an absolute bloodbath with a kill score of 18-5. In the final game, Fnatic’s rookie top laner Adam “Adam” Maanane picked his favourite Darius against Martin “Wunder” Hansen’s Camille. He solo killed the veteran top laner twice before going on to put on a game-changing performance.

“It’s honestly like a movie,” Upset said Fnatic’s promising ADC. “I want to thank my team and also my wife of course. She has been so supportive and I don’t think I could have done it without her giving me the mental strength.”

We‘d like to take this time to wish Fnatic all the best in their worlds venture, it will be an awesome experience for the newer players for certain. We will miss G2 at worlds with their balls to the wall playstyle.
