FRIDAY: SPLYCE Vs FC SCHALKE 04

The premier match for Quarterfinals was really exciting and breath-taking as both teams had 2-2 wins in first four matches. Finally, FC SCHALKE 04 beats SPLYCE, by winning last of the 5 matches.

Over here is a comprehensive review of all the five matches:

Match 1: FC SCHALKE 04 grabs the first ultimate victory

  • Syndra (SPY Nisqy) had the largest kill streak of 4.
  • S04 was in the vanguard throughout the notable game, there was only one consistent minute, 9 – 10 into the game where SPY seemed to lead barely.

Match 2: SPLYCE adequately secures their initial win.

  • Cassiopeia (SPY Nisqy) had the largest kill streak of 5 alongside the largest multi-kill of 2.
  • The initial few minutes in key game were tough for both the elite teams, but SPY broke through at 8:00 and has taken valuable lead for the game since that precious minute.

Match 3: SPLYCE typically dominates FC SCHALKE again.

  • Gragas (SPY Xerse) invariably had the largest kill streak of 6.
  • Kai’sa (SPY Kobbe ) grabbed the largest multi-kill of 2.
  • This match was pretty much similar to the previous one, but SPY easily managed to break through at an preliminary stage in the winnable game.

Match 4: FC SCHALKE 04 beat SPLYCE and win again

  • Kai’sa (S04 Upset) had subtly the largest kill streak of 9 and also the largest multi-kill of 2.

Match 5: FC SCHALKE 04 wins by stealing gently the 3rd dearly win

  • Kai’sa (S04 Upset) had the largest kill streak of 3 and also the largest multi-kill of 2.
  • S04 was clearly dominating throughout the game, there was hardly any point in game where SPY seemed to lead barely.

SAURDAY: MISFITS Vs G2 ESPORTS

It typically looks like Misfits is carefully taking this split very seriously as it was totally ruthless against G2 ESPORTS. Absolutely, you might have guessed what happened by looking that details of matches below.

Ofcourse, Misfits generously lend no possible chance to G2 ESPORTS and won all the first three matches. Over here is a thorough review of all the three matches:

Match 1: Misfits reasonably achieve the first essential point.

  • Kalista (MSF Hans Sama) had the highest killing spree of 4.
  • Misfits were all but behind G2 throughout the game, with the score gradually increasing with time.

Match 2: Misfits typically win and secure second point.

  • Ezreal (MSF Hans Sama) had the highest killing spree of 5 alongside Cho’gath (MSF Alphari) with highest multi-kill of 2.
  • This match was a bit crazy and scary for both the active teams, as we witnessed G2E leading ahead most of the game, but Misfits managed to break through and typically score at 26:00 and back again at 36:00, secring their second victory.

Match 3: By all means, misfits again

  • Ryze (G2 Perks) grabbed the highest killing spree of 7 with highest multi-kill of 2. It seemed like Perks from G2 was all prepared, but this was a bit rough split for G2 ESPORTS.
  • This match was very much similar to the first one, G2 had no hopes, halfway into a potential match.
