ImageIn the second to last week of LCS, SK Gaming played against Supa Hot Crew and Roccat.

After a straight up four game losing streak, SK had to keep their heads up to not get in dangerous areas in the standings!

SK Gaming vs. Supa Hot Crew

The first game of the week was held against the Supa Hot Crew. The team that convinced with flashing performances in the past weeks, climbing the ladder and also, like Fnatic, overcoming SK.


Maokai got his first appearance in the SK lineup and started, not like once seen on the toplane, in the jungle. Also Selfie got his hands on the recently buffed Ahri who fits his playstyle very well. The game was balanced throughout the majority of the match with a small advantage on SK’s side. The composition shined with super effective single target lockdown plus a very beefy frontline with Maokai and Aatrox. A very unlucky Baron call in the 41st minute gave the edge to SHC where SK didn’t have the damage to do any harm to the Nashor and SHC, mainly Selfie, rushing in and popping CandyPanda on the side. SHC aced SK and started to siege their base. The game finished after 53 minutes with Selfie playing a huge game on Ahri.

SK Gaming vs. ROCCAT

After the loss on Thursday against SHC, the losing streak extended to five games.


Fredy decided to go with Nidalee once more since she proved her bullying potential, especially against melee champions. Both solo lanes dominated their opponents and that allowed Svenskeren to put down pressure towards Jankos without being afraid of Overpoew and Xaxus. With an early gold lead, SK looked to snowball their advantage with good team rotations with 3+ players! This brought back memories of the SK that dominated the spring split. Also, Fredy now had a toplane champion that was, unlike for example Yorick, actually able to splitpush. With the Baron in the 35th minute, SK looked to end the game as fast as possible sieging the midlane inhibitor. With SK’s last push on the botlane, they had no troubles picking up the win and ending the five game losing streak with an impressive performance.

Next week will be the last week of LCS and a superweek in one! SK plays Millenium, Alliance, Fnatic and Gambit. The quarterfinals of the playoffs will be played on the following week, while the rest of the games will be at gamescom from the 14th to the 17th of August.
