G2 Esports made up for their "happy game" against Team Vitality by dragging Fnatic through the pavement with a traditional draft. The marquis match was supposed to be one for the history books, but G2 closed up shop in under 25 minutes.

The first half played out in traditional G2 versus Fnatic fashion, with Mads "Broxah" Brock-Pederson going aggro in the early game. Broxah didn't hesitate to sacrifice camps if it meant getting his laners ahead, and it definitely paid off for him after a bot lane gank secured first blood for Fnatic.

This is where things started to get spicy. Just when it looked as though some of G2's greedy mistakes from their game against Vitality were still plaguing them, they bit back and picked up crucial kills in Fnatic's jungle. Once they got rolling, they didn't let off the gas and continued to find picks with Mihael "Mikyx" Mehle's signature Pyke.

G2 blew the game wide open with a beautifully executed Teleport flank in the mid lane, swinging the game fully in their favor with a 4,000 gold lead. Shortly after, they made a play for Dragon and set themselves up to burn down Baron at spawn.

The rest of the game was purely seek and destroy for G2, as they postured to pick off Fnatic players left and right until they could run minions straight through their base.

"As soon as I saw their picks, I thought that there was very little way to lose the game," Luka "Perkz" Perković said in an interview after the match.

After failing to execute on an unconventional draft against Vitality, it's a good sign for G2 that they can demonstrate absolute dominance with a more traditional team composition. Despite a few hiccups in week seven, G2 are still the undisputed best in the LEC, and are looking scarier than ever ahead of playoffs.
