Logistics departments over at Fnatic and Splyce are about to get pretty busy, as the teams are among the first to qualify for the playoffs.
After what seemed to be a lackluster season, Fnatic became the first team to secure a playoff spot in the European LCS following wins against Team ROCCAT (7W-9L) and Unicorns of Love (6W-10L). With a season record of 12 wins and four losses, and with a week of games still ahead of them, Fnatic cements themselves at the very top of the standings and secure a free ride straight to the semi-finals.
Splyce, whose position in the rankings was very much up in the air two weeks ago, had to go big to earn themselves an invitation to Copenhagen, a host city for the 2018 EU LCS Spring Split playoffs. With an only so-so record of six wins and six losses after six weeks, Splyce were far from the likeliest team to be among the first to earn a playoff spot. However, after an impressive five-game win streak, Splyce become the second team to book themselves tickets to Denmark. With one week of games still on the horizon, Splyce will be looking to continue their winning streak and secure that highly coveted semi-final spot. Facing them will be Team Vitality (9W-7L) and Giants (7W-9L), both of which are still in the running for the playoff spot.
The reigning champions G2 Esports (9W-7L), who are just one win away from the playoffs, will be facing Unicorns of Love (6W-10L), who are currently at the bottom of the standings, and Team Vitality (9W-7L), another contender for a Top 2 regular season finish.
This season is quickly proving to be one of the most cut-throat to date. With all of the eight remaining teams still in the contention and with just four spots left up for grabs, the final week of EULCS is promising to be fierce.
