Day 2 did see a little more variety in the picks, with a Draven for Hans Sama being a notable departure, to great success. Kindred remains a popular answer to melee junglers like Sejuani, but has yet to find any particular success.

LEC Standings - Week 1 Day 2

After two days of games, we are yet to see any clear standings, but here is a breakdown of who has come out ahead:

  • G2 - 2-0
  • VIT - 2-0
  • KOI - 2-0
  • MAD - 2-0
  • HRT - 1-1
  • BDS - 1-1
  • FNC - 0-2
  • SK - 0-2
  • XL - 0-2
  • AST - 0-2

The main surprises here are Fnatic and Excel, both failing to pick up any LEC wins. Although only top 8 is needed to secure the next stage, every win counts towards seeding, which can have a huge impact.

Surprises of the day - G2 vs Fnatic, and BDS

Team BDS came out much stronger than day 1 of the LEC, which was quite a pleasant surprise for fans. Giving Crownshot the Caitlyn was certainly a mistake SK, but the carry performance was delivered by Nuc, who has been muted for some time in the mid-lane.

The real shock of the day though came in the age-old rivalry between G2 and Fnatic. Hans Sama picked the Draven, which is a bold statement and requires an early lead, but boy did he deliver, with the help of Mikyx and another incredible showing from Yike.

Rekkles and Rhucks were bullied out of the lane from minute one, and were simply not given the space to recover. G2 snowballed to a 10k gold lead at minute 15, and delivered one of the most one-sided game the LEC has seen in some time.
