G2 Esports carried out a clean sweep of opponents Rogue in a 3-0 victory to send them to MSI
G2 Esports has defeated Rogue to become the LEC Spring champion. In a 3-0 victory G2 was able to out-draft, out-play, and out-perform the regular season winner Rogue.
Winning 12 straight games in their trip to the finals, G2 caught Rogue off guard with a punishing series of victories. For Rogue, the split ends yet again with a podium position but no title. Meanwhile, G2 will head to the Mid-Season Invitational in Busan, South Korea, to face the best teams from around the globe.
G2 out-drafts Rogue
In their dominant first match to set the tone, G2 found themselves with a dangerous draft that paired the highly mobile Ahri pick with the invulnerable Tryndamere. Rogue, for their part, had prioritized banning away Xayah, leaving G2 with the pick of the litter for Rasmus “caPs” Winther. And it was caPs clever positioning and engages that punished Rogue for the first game.
For game two, Rogue attempted to strike back. Putting their hopes on the shoulders of Andrei “Odoamne” Pascu, the squad was able to match G2 for the majority of the game. And as a result Baron fights, dragon clashes, and ganks seemed to split evenly.
However, slowly but surely, a definitive lead emerged for G2 Esports. Even when punished away from the objectives they wanted, the squad were able to regroup and farm better. Once again, equipped with hard engage, and able to lean back on Caps, G2 pushed their advantage for the game two victory.
The last hurrah would see Rogue pick a deadly poke comp with Jayce, Caitlyn, and Twisted Fate. This allowed Rogue to set the game’s pace in their final match. But even with the pace in their hands Rogue were bullied out of engagements by a blue side G2 that had seemingly gotten every pick they wanted. And soon G2 were the LEC Spring 2022 champions.
G2 heads to MSI
For Rogue, it’s a time for introspection. Just yesterday, Fnatic seemingly fell into a similar slump faced with the incredible performance of G2. Sometimes a team is unstoppable on LAN, and this time, that’s G2 esports. Reinvigorated by the return of fans, and with MSI in their sights, the team put an exclamation mark on a split of great performances.
