The last time around in a winless week, G2 Esports had a healthy dose of reality. Today’s reigning champions began with a clear win over Excel Esports, led by Jungles Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski’s Karthus, on week five of the 2020 LEC Spring Split.
One of the most dominant and versatile champions, Orne, has only fallen into the lap of the G2 mid-line Luka “Perkz” Perković in some way in the second round of bans. Excel selected Vayne for his lane opponent, Son “Mickey” Youngsmin, with their last selection.
Perkz easily pulled Vayne into almost obsolescence with a little support from his jungle. Six minutes later, Jankos got his ultimate blood from Mickey — and three minutes later he did the same again. His demanded job from beyond the grave, which punished Excel’s highly squishy dual-CDA team structure, was easily snowballed.
While Mickey could not achieve his goals in the laning process, in the sometimes one-vs-one circumstances in which he found himself, he showed remarkable duelling abilities. In the end, however, he couldn’t differentiate between G2 and him. Excel could only delay the inevitable, suffering its fifth defeat.
Martin “Wunder” Hansen was dissatisfied with Aatrox’s resistance to G2. Excel’s squishy bursts apart, even without a challenge to an absolute Karthus.
Changes like these will only stipulation Orn tier lists further up, particularly Patch 10.4, which saw essential Immolate boosts, the Bami Cinder passive and, by extension, all things it includes, including the Forgefire Cape, an Ornn unique Sunfire upgrade. At the end of the game, Perkz was almost unturnable. His teammates deliberately hit the tanks for 10 seconds at one time while padding their stats when they drew the fuck out.
G2 enter Misfits Gaming 7-2 at the LEC stage halfway through the group. Tomorrow at 13:00 CT, you will face the upstart MAD Lions.
