Yesterday in Europe, the regular season of the main professional tournament of the spring, the LEC Spring 2023, came to an end. Three busy weeks of games determined the names of the participants in the next stage of the European League.
Eight teams made it to the group stage of LEC Spring 2023: Team BDS, Astralis, G2 Esports, Vitality, SK Gaming, Fnatic, KOI and MAD Lions. These eight will continue on their way to the European Championship, but Team Heretics and Excel Esports were left out of the Spring Split.
Team distribution in the LEC Spring 2023 group stage
With the group stage of LEC Spring 2023 about to begin, here is a brief rundown on what happened during the regular season.
Cumbsack Fnatic: The Orange are on their way to the playoffs
One of the most talked about teams of the new year in Europe is Fnatic, which makes sense. The renowned club brought back legendary gunner Rekkles before the start of LEC 2023, and it can't go unnoticed.
Fnatic's poor showing in the first split of the year, LEC Winter 2023, was not overlooked either. The club barely managed to pick up 2 cards in the winter draw, which in no way fit with the team's performance.
A breakthrough team showing a grin within the Worlds 2022, ignominiously failed in the local league. Such a performance provoked a mid-year substitution: Wunder was benched, while rhuckz, a Portuguese who had come on board with Rekkles, left the bench.
These pinpoint changes helped Fnatic improve their performance. The top European club qualified for the LEC Spring 2023 group stage, finishing the regular season 4-5 in 6th place in the table.
