G2 qualify for MSI after being crowned champions of LEC Spring 2024.

G2 Esports have been crowned LEC Spring 2024 Champions, taking down Fnatic twice in the process. This is their fourth LEC title in a row, an impressive record. The result also secures their place at the Mid-Season Invitational.

The Grand Final victory against Fnatic was far easy, but witnessed BrokenBlade and Mikyx swapping lanes throughout the games. It was a strategy BrokenBlade commented on in the post-match interview.

“I think we played that better. That’s why we won.

It’s going to be a new patch dropping [before the MSI], and if [the lanes swap] is the best way to win, we are gonna do it.”

Hans Sama played the role of Carry amazingly well during the Grand Final. He brought some great kills to his team, including a Pentakill. Although he down-played the achievement, claiming it was a Penta-meta.

“So many Pentakills happen in this meta, almost every series. It’s Penta-meta.”

Caps has become the MVP of the LoL esports match G2 Esports vs Fnatic. Also, it’s his 12th title!

“I definitely feel more relieved than anything today. The games were very close. They [Fnatic] were very aggressive, and we got caught a few times. I think we felt quite stressed in the game. Definitely super relieved that we got the win.

We’ve learned a lot, and we’ve been very honest with each other. We are playing less on our own. That’s the main reason why I’m doing better — because we are working together as a unit.”

G2 Esports vs Fnatic: LEC Spring 2024 Grand Final

In the series between Fnatic and G2 Esports, Fnatic began aggressively in Game 1, securing early advantages and team fights which G2 could not overcome. Game 2 saw G2 making early strategic moves, including a jungle invasion, leading to their victory after Fnatic faltered in a late-game attack.

Game 3 featured a crucial fight won by Fnatic, but was turned around by Caps' surprise attack on Fnatic’s base. Game 4 was evenly matched initially with both teams scoring early kills. However, G2 gained momentum by eliminating Fnatic and capturing the Baron, which, alongside Hans Sama's Pentakill, led to G2 pressing their advantage, destroying towers, and securing the match victory.

This victory is quite important as G2 Esports has qualified to the Mid-Season Invitational thanks to it. The team did not perform well internationally, placing 9th-11th at the 2023 World Championship.

“We always want to win! At the MSI, we really want to prove ourselves. It’s been a long time since we did even remotely good internationally. We really want to show that there still is hope. I think we can definitely compete with the best.”

Caps

“I have good feelings about the MSI… I have a good plan, hopefully I can show it.”
