G2 meets LCK shooting stars: How good is the LEC champion?

With DAMWON Gaming, a strong and talented lineup meets the LEC champion G2 Esports in the Worlds quarter-finals. The Europeans are regarded as one of the title favourites but had a few problems at the end of the group stage. What is the situation before the match?

G2 Esports looked like a real title favourite in Group A as well, but then they lost to Griffin in two clear defeats. The second LCK Seed brought great hope to Europe with these clear wins to doubt. In the quarter-finals, it will not necessarily be easier for G2, because DAMWON Gaming is waiting for the team.

ShowMaker and Perkz: Two exceptional players in the duel

Both teams have several strong individual players, but so far Su ‘ShowMaker’ Heo and Luka ‘Perkz’ Perković have been the key players of both lineups.

The 19-year-old South Korean ShowMaker only suffered six deaths in six group games, four of which he cashed in his first match against Team Liquid. Since then, the talented Mid-Lanian has been delivering top performances time and again and is the most important success factor for his team.

Perkz plays a similar role for G2 Esports. The Croatian played consistently well and managed several times to lead his team to victory in certain situations.

Lack of consistency: Is G2 no longer in top form?

However, Perkz also had to call up these performances, because some of his team-mates were very inconsistent. Especially Martin ‘Wunder’ Hansen and Marcin ‘Jankos’ Jankowski played some really bad games in the group phase. The two must get their form under control to beat DAWMON.

With Rasmus ‘Caps’ Winther G2 ShowMaker can face a worthy opponent, but if Wunder and Jankos don’t play against Ha-gwon ‘Nuguri’ Jang and Geon-bu ‘Canyon’ Kim at the highest level, it could be too little.

DAMWON Gaming has shown in group D how well the team is put together individually. The defending champions Invictus Gaming were already able to put the South Koreans in their place, and G2 will probably act similarly aggressive. It will be anything but a walk in the park for Perkz and Co., but G2 Esports has not yet lost a best-of-five in 2019 and will be highly motivated in front of their home crowd in Madrid.

The winner of this match will face SK Telecom T1 or Splyce in the semi-final.
