Origen officially defeat G2 on their second day of the LEC Summer Series.
Despite the decent start, G2 has recently lost their second match in the LEC Summer series. The team had matched with Origen in the second day of the summer season. Unfortunately, G2 failed to replicate their previous performance in their run. They lost to Origen, marking their first defeat in the debut week. G2 had became the champions in the last LEC season. They finished off Fnatic 3-0 in the finals match of LEC Spring Playoffs, taking home €80,000 prize.
Origen, on the other hand, had a difficult start to the LEC Summer Split. The team lost their first match against SK Gaming. However, now with their victory against the former LEC champions, it seems that they back on the track. Similar to G2, Origen also had a good finish in the LEC Spring series. They dropped right before the semifinals, placing in the fourth spot.
Origen had started the match with an aggressive draft. They opened a 2,000 gold gap in the first ten minutes. They also had four more kills than G2. Their lead had begun after the first five minutes. G2’s Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski had tried to take down Elias “Upset” Lipp in the bot lane. However, his plan to get his first kill didn’t go as he thought. During his attempt, Mitchell “Destiny” Shaw showed up and took him down, leading to the first blood in the team.
Despite this upsetting start, there was still hope for G2. There have been numerous times when the team made a staggering comeback after their poor plays. Unfortunately, this wasn’t one of those times. G2 was still recovering when Origen took their third dragon. After the dragon, they became an unstoppable power, crushing G2 on their way to victory.
After the game, Barney “Alphari” Morris became the Player of the Week. LEC had posted on Twitter for the community to choose for the Player of the Week between Alphari, Andrei “Xerxe” Dragomir, and Upset. Ultimate winner was Alphari. Origen’s top laner had a great stunt against G2 during the match. He finished with 7 kills, zero death, and 4 assists.
