Week 3 has seen matches galore of titanic proportions. Fnatic and G2 Esports faced off for the first time this season, while we also saw another 2-0 week from Misfits Gaming who simply keep defying expectations. With the meta still settling into place, let’s dive into our top five picks that left a mark on the third week of the LEC Spring Split.
Razork’s Gragas: 5/2/5 vs Origen
Misfits’s jungler showed us exactly why people ban Gragas against him: Iván "Razork" Martín Díaz was able to put pressure in all three lanes, giving Misfits a massive advantage in the mid-game against Origen. Razork knows exactly where he has to be to turn this gank around, below. He not only prevents his team mate from dying, but he also picks up two kills in the process.
Misfits are on a rampage, going 4-0 in the last two weeks. Can they overcome their pre-season expectations, and make it to playoffs?
Wunder’s Aatrox: 7/1/4 vs Fnatic
Martin "Wunder" Nordahl Hansen doesn’t like it when you ban away his Soraka. His Aatrox, however, is able to shake things up. G2 Esports’ toplaner was able to turn around a few key fights with some well placed sweet-spot hits of his Q.
G2 Esports vs Fnatic always delivers, and this series – the first of 2020 – was no exception to that rule. Every single one of G2’s picks could have made the cut here, but Wunder truly excelled in his match-up.
Humanoid’s LeBlanc: 6/1/5 vs Rogue
MAD Lions’ Marek "Humanoid" Brázda had a rough start to the Spring Split, but performances like this should never go unnoticed. While the game was messy and very back and forth, Humanoid was able to make key pick-offs over Rogue in moments that swung around the game in MAD’s favour.
Watch how Humanoid uses LeBlanc’s kit to the full extent to escape a two man gank. Even the combined CC of a Lissandra and a Jarvan IV wasn’t enough to take out MAD Lions’ midlaner.
Rekkles’ Miss Fortune: 4/0/2 vs Excel Esports
When Martin "Rekkles" Larsson is in form, he’s a treat to watch. Against Excel, he was able to keep out of harm’s way and still pick off key targets.
In the clip above, Rekkles picks up a double kill in a very even game. Excel was even able to get ahead at one point, however, these vital two kills gave Fnatic the confidence to turn back on the Baron, and gave them a boost to end the game.
Alphari’s Camille: 4/0/5 vs Team Vitality
Camille is not a champion that we see very often anymore. League of Legends has become a lot more reliant on team fighting as a result of the dragon updates, making Camille a rather off-meta pick. Yet, Barney "Alphari" Morris was able to make her work.
The thing that sets Camille apart from other split pushers is her ultimate. Alphari was able to target the right people in fights around the dragon pit, which helped Origen create a man advantage. This ultimately gave them the confidence to press the go button and wipe out Team Vitality in the process.
