At the time of publication, G2 Esports remain as the only undefeated team with a record of 5-0. Strong play by both Perkz and the bot lane of Zven and Mithy have propelled the team in a league of their own. Behind them in Group A is Misfits with a 7-3 record followed by a 4-6 Fnatic who has struggled all split long. Running hot right now is ROCCAT, stringing four wins together has brought their record up to 4-7 while Giants gaming look destined for the relegation tournament with a 2-8 record.
Over in Group B the Unicorns of Love stand on top with a 8-2 record. Right behind them is H2K with a 7-3 record. While H2K has not looked fantastic, you can't count them out when the pressure is on. They've proven in big situations that they can handle their own and contend with just about anyone in the world. Below them is where you'll find Splyce and their 6-4 record where they've been consistently average all split, losing to teams they are supposed to lose to and winning against those they should. Vitality are safely out of relegation with a 3-7 record only because a winless 0-11 Origen takes up the last spot in Group B.
