Ice cold G2 Esports seals Team Vitality’s end

G2 Esports has won the duel against Team Vitality in the second lower bracket round in the playoffs of the LEC Spring Season 2022. The record winners in Europe prevailed 3-0 on Friday and will challenge Misfits Gaming on Sunday.

Team Vitality got off to a better start in the best-of-five series. Led by a highly active on-map Labros ‘Labrov’ Papoutsakis, the French organization’s lineup earned a gold advantage in game one and slew their first dragon.

G2 then woke up and quickly equalized the opponent’s lead. After 29 minutes, a mistake by Luka ‘Perkz’ Perković resulted in a third kite for his ex-team. Vitality then decided to set a trap on Baron Nashor, but lost the fight and with it the epic monster. With the buff, G2 ended the game.

The first quarter of an hour of the second game was the show of Sergen ‘BrokenBlade’ Celik and his Jax: In a one-on-one he provided first blood against Barney ‘Alphari’ Morris and later found more solo kills against Oskar ‘Selfmade’ Boderek and Matyáš ‘Carzzy’ Orság.

With the second Rift Herald, Vitality lost an Inhibitor tower early on and even voluntarily gave up the Inhibitor to secure more farm. This worked for a few minutes before an extremely long fight went in favor of G2. In addition to the Cloud Soul, this also meant Baron Nashor and a few moments later it was 2-0.

Vitality loses after steals from Jankos and caPs

With their backs to the wall, Team Vitality showed a strong early game in the third game, thanks in particular to Selfmade: After 15 minutes, the difference was around 5,000 gold and two dragons. However, a Baron steal by Marcin ‘Jankos’ Jankowski took the wind out of the opponent’s sails.

In the 29th minute, Team Vitality eliminated caPs and opted to go after the rest of the G2 players instead of securing the Hextech Soul Drake that spawned shortly thereafter. The resulting confrontation, however, lost the quintet of the French organization and had to surrender alongside the dragon and Baron Nashor.

Afterwards, G2 continued to take control because Vitality was no longer able to play direct team fights. After 40 minutes, Selfmade and Co. suffered the next low blow: caPs stole a kite and gave his team the Hextech Soul. A third Baron buff led to the end of the game and thus the series.

Team Vitality ends the spring split in a disappointing fifth place with this loss. G2 Esports advance to the third lower bracket round, where they meet Misfits Gaming on Sunday. On Saturday at 5:00 p.m., Fnatic and Rogue will face off in a duel for the first final ticket.
