Shock failures, meta shifts, and who BDS dubbed the ‘weakest team’: The LEC 2024 Winter Split playoffs are here

The first LEC Split of 2024 has reached its climax, with the regular season coming to an end amidst the whirlwind of a new team, rookie players, and map changes. G2 Esports snatched the top spot from Team BDS on the last day, a surprising turn of events considering BDS’ stellar performance throughout the regular season.

Unfortunately, not all teams made the cut, as newcomers KarmineCorp and returning Rogue both found themselves out of the running until the Spring Split. While past results affected the expectations for the two teams, leading most to be surprised by their elimination so early in the tournament, for Fnatic’s bot laner they didn’t come as as much of a surprise.
