Fnatic, a prestigious European team that drew attention with the return of their franchise star, Martin “Rekkles” Larsson, wrote a dishonorable record for the winter season with less than expected performance. Fnatic, who fought against Astralis until the end to advance to the group stage, ended the regular season in 9th place (2 wins, 7 losses) after losing to SK Gaming in the final match. 메이저사이트
Fnatic lost to SK Gaming in the final match of the spring regular season at the ‘2023 LOL EMEA Championship (LEC)’ held at LEC Studios in Berlin, Germany on the 7th (hereinafter Korean time). The loss gave Fnatic their worst start to 2023 as they failed to make it to the Group Stage, where 8 out of 10 teams advance.
Even when we met Vitality and G2 in Week 1 and lost 2 games in a row after the opening, the general consensus was that we met a strong team too quickly. However, as the season progressed, Fnatic’s sloppy performance was revealed. Fnatic aimed to be a team that rolled snowballs with the growth of ‘Humanoid’ Marek Brazda and ‘Rekkles’, the main damages in the team. However, in the 3 weeks of the winter regular season, their concentration collapsed and they faced the worst ending, losing to a whopping 7 teams.
Because Fnatic invested a lot, this result is causing public outrage among fans. In addition to the roster that advanced to the ‘LOL World Championship (Lolds Cup)’ last year, Fnatic added the experience of ‘Rekkles’. However, they failed to advance to the group stage and were put in a situation where they had to promise the next one.
On the other hand, rival teams such as Vitality, Mad Lions, and G2 easily settled into the group stage, making Fnatic’s performance even more pitiful this time. Vitality, led by Luka “Perkz” Perkovich, took 1st place (7 wins, 2 losses) and was the first among 10 teams to settle in the group stage.
Meanwhile, after the reorganization, the LEC was divided into three seasons: Winter, Spring, and Summer. In the winter season, the top 8 teams will advance to the group stage after a three-week one-off match. In the group stage, Bo3 (Best 2 out of 3) will be played, and the 4 teams that won the final match of the winners’ bracket and the losers’ bracket will get a ticket to the playoffs.
