Following another dominant League of Legends EMEA Championship split, G2 Esports claimed their 11th title with a 3-0 victory over Excel Esports in the LEC Summer grand final on Sunday.
After finishing the regular season with an 8-1 record, G2 went into the playoffs as overwhelming favourites to clinch the title.
During the playoffs, G2 only faced one team, as they went up against Excel Esports in the upper-bracket final – defeating them 3-2 – before clashing with them once again in the grand final.
G2 dominated every aspect of the decider, with Martin “Yike” Sundelin recording an unbelievable stat line of 15 kills, one death and 45 assists for the series, while he compiled a massive 60 KDA.
Unsurprisingly, Yike earned the LEC Summer Finals MVP award after his dominant performance, adding to the two LEC titles he had already won since joining G2 in December of last year.
G2 mid-laner Rasmus “Caps” Winther won his ninth LEC trophy, which puts him ahead of his ex-teammate Luka “Perkz” Perkovic for most titles won in Europe’s top LoL competition.
Even though G2 won both the LEC Winter and Summer splits, they are yet to qualify for the 2023 LoL World Championship.
Unlike other top regional leagues, where teams earn qualification through their summer performances, G2 will have to finish in the top three at the LEC Season Finals to book their spot at Worlds in South Korea.
However, it is very likely that the Caps and his teammates will qualify for Worlds, as they are marked as $1.50 favourites with most bookmakers to take out the LEC Season Finals title in late August.
