Miraculous. Fnatic’s “super-team” almost fell by the wayside this Sunday evening and missed the Worlds of League of Legends for the first time since 2016. In the first round of play offs of the European Championship (the LEC), she had to work hard to beat a good formation from Excel (3-2) and stay alive in this competition.
The latter indeed thought to have done the hardest part by taking the upper hand in the first two rounds against an opponent on alternating current, with a workforce not always aligned on the decisions to be taken over the course of the games. But despite the shortcomings of the collective, Fnatic can still count on very large individuals, capable of transcending themselves: these have shown their backs to the wall. In a completely crazy third set, they returned an Excel at the gates of victory to maintain hope.
A success that completely redistributed the cards mentally: more convincing from then on, Fnatic, led by an excellent Ivan “Razork” Martin Diaz in the jungle, finally won in five tense games. Still in the race for a European title, his team will especially play the last European ticket for the Worlds in a week, against the Misfits of Frenchman Vincent “Vetheo” Berrié.
