The race for the top of the table was certainly, tight, with a lot being decided by Vitality's nail-biting victory over Excel to round off day 3. Mad Lions had a fantastic week, going 3-0 and taking down rivals G2, to secure second place and their pick of opponent for the next round.

Astralis picked up two crucial wins to secure their spot, while Fnatic and Excel failed to pick up any. This puts them out of the playoffs, which is a first for Fnatic in their long history in the LEC.

Surprises of the Week - Mad Lions, Vitality, and Fnatic

Mad Lions were by far the best-performing team of the week, with all members stepping up and delivering fantastic performances. MVP goes to Chasy on the Renekton, doing a ton of work, particularly in the all-important G2 match to close out the week.

Vitality went the distance this round, with an agonising last-minute victory against BDS, followed by a true spectacle against Excel on Monday. That game almost hit the 55-minute mark, smashing global records for pro games this split.

Fnatic has looked a shambles this split, but coming into the final week only needed one win, to at least secure a tiebreaker for playoffs. In the end, though, they failed to do so, and it will be a surprise if the same squad and coaching staff return for spring, as serious changes are needed.
