Flakked and Patrik are on a mission to make ADCs great again, garnering MVPs for their respective games with dominant performances and flashy outplays!
Rogue vs G2
Rogue’s eight game win streak gets snapped by a dominating game out of G2’s side laners.
One could also consider it a straight up upset given both teams’ trajectories coming into this game, with G2 struggling in their mid-split slump and Rogue looking as dominant as ever in the regular season.
Broken Blade’s all-in understanding versus Odoamne’s Gnar was a pretty big proponent in creating advantages for G2 to capitalize off of; Rogue constantly found themselves on the backfoot in split map scenarios, simply because their top laner was getting picked off and solo killed.
This led to an unfair advantage on the other side of the map, where Flakked shined, picking up this game’s MVP with some serious Aphelios DPS, annihilating Rogue in their attempt to salvage Odo’s mistakes.
I know this is a tall task for an inconsistent G2, but if they are able to play split-map scenarios this well, then they can easily coast into playoffs and then ramp up for a second shot at the title.
MVP: Flakked (2)
Excel vs Fnatic
What we expected to be a huge Match of the Week between Excel and Fnatic turned out to be a one-sided ass beating…
Fnatic simply capitulated with Humanoid being picked off with two early deaths and the team never recovered against Excel’s constant aggression, simply losing skill checks all over the map as Excel players farmed montages for their personal clips.
Patrik benefitted from Fnatic’s ints the most, putting forth quite probably one of the best outplays from a bot laner I have seen in a very long time, outplaying Humanoid and Hylissang near their tier one mid turret in exhilarating fashion.
Fnatic continues to be quite inconsistent, going from looking highly competitive and skilled against Rogue to completely getting destroyed with no chance of recourse against Excel.
MVP: Patrik (2)
