MAD Lions eliminated Fnatic from the 2023 LEC Spring Split after a hard-fought series that led League of Legends fans on a rollercoaster of emotions. After three games and more than one quadrakill, it was MAD Lions who kept their hopes to advance to the playoffs stage of the competition alive. They are now one step closer to collecting their tickets for the Mid Season Invitational while Fnatic will have to wait for the Summer Split before stepping onto the LEC stage again.
After MAD Lions dominated the first game from the early stage and Fnatic tied the score with a win in the second one, it all came down to one teamfight in the third and final game. As Rekkles told Dot Esports, the series was “quite bloody” due to the mistakes made by both sides, but in Elyoya’s eyes the games were “controlled” for MAD Lions’ part—and the gold graph for the first game shows it.
