2.) Origen

The bad boys of Europe managed to get a little bit badder.

Their highly regarded bot lane left for a rival team, but Origen was able to replace them with two offcast but highly talented players in Glenn “Hybrid” Doornenbal and FORG1VENG.

Hybrid was able to lead his team to the top of Europe during the Spring Split and demonstrated himself as one of the better supports in the region.

The two new bottom laners and how well they synergize will be the key factor in how Origen finishes in summer.

Origen will also need to learn lessons from spring to achieve this high of placing in summer. They cannot come in as unpracticed as they did at the beginning of the last split.

1.) Fnatic

The biggest storyline for Fnatic is obviously the return of their star support player Bora “YellOwStaR” Kim from his stint in North America with TSM.  Fnatic had a disappointing regular season finish but looked much better during playoffs.

The return of their star shotcaller to this lineup will take the pressure off of Martin “Rekkles” Larsson as well as Fabian “Febiven” Diepstraten, allowing the two to return to a more carry focused role.

However, Fnatic will need better play from their top laner Yeong-jin “Gamsu” Noh to achieve this top spot.

The talent of this roster plus their top notch coaching staff will facilitate their return to the top of the EU LCS tables.
