Who is the Weakest Link for Vitality?
That is something that we still can’t say with certainty because Vitality has a lot of weak spots at the moment. This European team has managed to once again disappoint their fans after showing almost no improvement at all from the spring split. Right now, Vitality have picked up 6 wins and they are far from looking like strong contenders for the title. We could put all the blame on the cohesion between each of the players, but in reality, individually is where most of them are flaking.
Putting it bluntly, Kang “Haru” Min-seung would be one of the main culprits. A lot of League of legends betting experts are saying that Haru is not looking bad at all, and well, they are right. The 24-year-old Korean jungler is not doing badly, but is that all we can expect from someone who is playing in a team with the likes of Alphari and Perkz? It seems to me that Haru doesn’t think that he needs to do anything for their solo laners and instead focuses on having a good KDA and overcoming his counterpart’s CS.
We also have to talk about the bot lane. Matyáš “Carzzy” Orság isn’t looking that hot, which is something that not a lot of us expected. Amongst all the starting ADCs, Carzzy has the 2nd highest amounts of deaths per game at 3. Don’t get me wrong, he is still the one that deals the largest amount of damage for his team, but the fact that he is dying so much is the sign of bigger problem. He looks completely disconnected from Labrov, and if they don’t find a way to fix things quickly, we might see them repeating their spring playoffs run.
G2 is a Box Full of Surprises
The 2022 MSI EU representatives have been struggling throughout the majority of this summer split regular season, but they looked good in week 5. G2 picked up their first victory of the week against Astralis in a convincing manner, which was relieving to see considering that G2 dropped a couple of games against the bottom teams. They closed out the week by defeating LEC’s 1st place Rogue, though this match was a bit more close than their previous one.
But that’s only one of their two faces. Let’s not forget that G2 recently had two 0-2 weeks in a row, and some of those games were against teams that aren’t doing that great. SK Gaming and Misfits completely dismantled G2 in week 4, with MSF giving them their 4th loss in a row. So basically, in a good week, G2 can take down every single team in the league, but in a bad week, they can lose even against the worst team in the league (BDS).
It’s safe to say that even though this team isn’t looking as dominant as we thought they would look, it’s really hard to think they are out of the competition. This year, the LEC will send out 4 teams to represent the European region at the 2022 World Championship, which is why I think that G2 is likely going to end up securing 1 of those 4 spots. Mad Lions and Rogue are looking like the strongest contenders for the title, but just like in the spring split, G2 might be able to bounce back once the playoffs start.

Vitality vs G2 Predictions
We haven’t been sharing a lot of lol bets for the LEC in the past couple of weeks, but we have been keeping a close eye on its matches and we can say that this is going to be a very interesting one to watch. These teams are tied for 4th place with a 6-5 score and just a single win or loss will move them up or down the standings.
While G2 are starting to clean up their game, Vitality are struggling to keep their stability. I really think that if they don’t switch things up within the team, there is a scenario where Vitality can’t reach the summer playoffs. Who would’ve guessed that a team with players of such high caliber could end up with a 7th-place finish.
There is no more time to fool around if you are G2 and from week 6 onwards we should see them start playing more seriously. Jankos and Caps are still the strongest duo in the league and they’ll be going up against a Haru Perkz duo that seems offline. This is going to be a good opportunity for G2 to prove that they are better than Vitality and try to bury them further down the standings.
