The 2022 League of Legends European Championship is back after a one-week break with Week 4 of the summer split. The day kicked off with an upset win from Astralis against Excel and this set the tone for many more to come. For anyone who missed anything from Week 4 Day 1 of the 2022 LEC summer split, Upcomer has the best recap just for you.
Player of the Day: SK Gaming’s Sertuss
Week 4 Day of the LEC featured standout performances from several players, but SK’s Daniel “Sertuss” Gamani takes the win for his exceptional mid-lane performance and solo kill on Europe’s best mid-laner, Rasmus “caPs” Winther. SK stunned G2 to secure their second win of the summer split in dominant fashion. The team looked much different from previous weeks, and they raised the tempo even higher after Sertuss got the solo kill onto caPs.
“Solo killing everyone especially caPs, the Solo killer was pretty geat,” Sertuss said on the LEC analyst desk
A day of triple upsets in the LEC
Week 4 Day 1 of the LEC summer split 2022 showed the competitive nature of the league as three teams at the bottom took wins off top table teams. Astralis kicked things off with an incredible comeback against Excel in the first game after surviving several base attacks.
This trend continued with Misfits taking the win against Fnatic. Unlike Astralis, Misfits actually had a good start to the game, with a constant focus on Fnatic’s jungler. The plan worked out for them, at least until the mid game when Fnatic extinguished their fire and regained control. However, Misfits quickly brought themselves back into the game after a decisive fight in the jungle.
The last upset came from SK Gaming, who had their most dominant game of the LEC summer split against G2. The spring champions found themselves five kills and two dragons down just 14 minutes into the game; SK managed to keep control of the game and didn’t allow G2 back in, even after they lost a fight in the top jungle later on. They quickly regrouped and challenged G2 for the Baron, taking firm control of the game. SK ended the game after 34 minutes with all dragons claimed and a 14,000 gold lead. Only BDS and Vitality failed to secure upset wins as MAD Lions and Rogue proved too hard to beat
Best quote: Vetheo flames Fnatic’s Razork
After winning the game against Fnatic, Misfits Vincent “Vetheo” Berrié thanked his former teammate and Fnatic’s new jungler, Iván “Razork” Martín. The player had a rough time against Misfits with three deaths in just eight minutes.
Week 4 of the 2022 LEC summer split will wrap up tomorrow, with Team BDS and SK as the opener. First place squad Rogue will be taking on G2, who will surely be eager to get back to their winning ways.
