Over the weekend the Grand Finals of the EU LCS was held, and in a staggering performance, G2 eSports were able to defend the title they have won in the previous split, and by winning the EU LCS Spring Split 2017, they have won three LCS Split titles in a row. Even before winning the third LCS Split title, G2 eSports were characterized as the kings of Europe, and with the third title, that nickname will receive a completely new and well-deserved meaning. Their opponents in the final, Unicorns of Love, did their best but G2 eSports was just too strong for them to handle.
The Final Match
The final match started as everyone was expecting with the clear dominance by G2 eSports side. In that opening game, Unicorns of Love were aggressive, and someone might say too aggressive. Even though that was a good way to find a possible path to defeat G2 eSports, Unicorns of Love proved to be much more aggressive than it was required which provided G2 eSports with the opportunity and the space to attack and to have a clear advantage in that first game. Game one was the true demonstration of G2 eSports power which showed in G2 not allowing Unicorns of Love even a single opportunity to cause a significant blow to G2 efforts.
However, in the second game, Unicorns of Love were able to overcome the initial enthusiasm of playing in the final against G2 eSports. In that game, Unicorns of Love punished G2 eSports for the mistakes they did but could not close the game when it was necessary. That provided G2 eSports the opportunity to turn the tables in the second game and by taking the Baron, G2 eSports managed to put Unicorns of Love into a completely defensive position and eventually they won game two as well. At the start of game three, everything looked the same, and everyone thought that the final match was coming to an end. However, Unicorns of Love were able to resist the initial attacks from G2 eSports and after thirty of the game three, they managed to capture the Baron which they eventually used until the end of the game to blow punches at the G2 eSports efforts to close the third game. In the end, it was Unicorns of Love who secured the win in the game three which kept their dreams and hopes of winning the title alive.
That win was not clean for Unicorns of Love, but that was exactly what they needed at that point not to lose all motivation and to bring them back to the path of trying to make a huge comeback. However, in the fourth game, it was the experience of G2 eSports that turned out to be crucial to determine the winner of the final match. In the early stages of game four, G2 eSports managed to get several kills which made Unicorns of Love focus on getting back to the game. However, as Unicorns of Love were trying to deal with the single target with too many means, G2 eSports was able to go through their base and burn it completely. In the end, it was the win for G2 eSports in the fourth game that made G2 eSports a third time in a row champion of EU LCS.
