G2 Esports defeated rivals Fnatic in another fierce series to lift the League of Legends LEC trophy on the weekend.

They sought revenge over Fnatic, who are headquartered in London, beating them 3-0 in the Summer 2020 playoff finals. The result came one week after Fnatic defeated G2 3-2 in the upper bracket final.

G2 swept aside Rogue 3-2 to face Fnatic again in the finals, and won with an emphatic performance.

In winning, G2 gained another title – their eighth championship win in the LEC. Their sights will now be set on the World Championship and G2 will be hoping to win that after losing to FunPlus Phoenix last year.

The LEC has adapted this year following the impact of the coronavirus. Though there hasn’t been a live audience, teams have played from their gaming houses and offices and the action has continued.

“In my eyes, the strength of an organisation is measured in how it reacts to hardship. 2020 has been specifically hard for our team, but we’re back.”

The casters and production team started experimenting with the stremas by working from their homes, but in recent months have broadcast from the LEC Berlin studio.

“In my eyes, the strength of an organization is measured in how it reacts to hardship,” said Carlos ‘Ocelote’ Rodríguez Santiago, founder of G2 Esports.

“2020 has been specifically hard for our team, but we’re back. THE KING IS BACK.”

Maximilian Schmidt, commissioner for the LEC, added: “Congratulations to G2 for winning the 2020 LEC Summer!”

“Despite all challenges we’ve faced as a League and as a team, this Summer will go down in the history books as one of the most exciting and surprising seasons since the start of our League – and I can’t thank our teams, partners, and production teams enough for their efforts throughout.

“I’m humbled by our passionate LEC fanbase, who broke all of our previous viewership records throughout this year, and I can’t wait to see the intensity they’ll bring cheering on our four European teams competing at the World Championship.”
