The EU LCS

G2 Esports and Unicorns of Love continue their dominant runs in the EU LCS, topping their respective groups with four games played and no losses. G2 Esports faced Giants Gaming this week, earning a comfortable win which made sure Giants kept at the bottom of the table with only one win in four games. Unicorns of Love faced Splyce themselves, however, they had to overturn a 1-0 deficit to win 2-1.

On Saturday bottom of their tables Origen and Roccat had the chance to gain some much-needed points while facing Splyce and Fnatic respectively, these being the only matches being played, but it wasn't to be. Both registered another defeat to their name, and even though Team Vitality and Giants lost too, they still remain above them in each group.

The NA LCS

There was plenty to get excited about this week in the NA LCS, especially in regards to Team SoloMid who played Counter Logic Gaming on Saturday. CLG has underperformed thus far, so the fight they put up against TSM was all the more surprising. The fairytale wasn't to become reality, though, as TSM staged a great comeback to secure the match and solidify themselves at second place alongside FlyQuest.

Team Dignitas saw much worse fortunes however, with two games and two defeats this week. They won't be pleased with their performance against CLG in particular, though, crumbling under CLG's pressure and speed. Cloud9 handled their two games with the same quality they have thus far this season, though, keeping their undefeated run going.

The LCK

The LCK remains relatively unchanged this week, with dominant forces SK Telecom T1 and kt Rolster keeping their great runs going, both sitting atop the table still with four wins and no losses. Just below them are BBQ Olivers and Samsung Galaxy, both of whom were victorious, however, Samsung Galaxy lost one map to ROX Tigers, but it wasn't enough to push them back.

ROX Tigers will surely be disappointed to register a defeat and miss the chance to join Longzhu Gaming's record of two wins and two losses, but they still sit alongside Jin Air GreenWings, who charted their first win over Afreeca Freecs, leaving Kongdoo Monster as the only team without a single win.
