In theory, a game between Team Vitality, a preseason favorite to win the LEC, and SK Gaming, a team that started the season with a dreadful record of 2-8, shouldn’t have had too many playoff implications. But with just one game separating the two League of Legends teams in the standings coming into today’s week seven matchup, their meeting proved to be extremely consequential—especially since Vitality came out on top in the crucial late-split contest, even if they had to rely on some help from their minions.
Throughout the early game, SK kept pace with Vitality, earning the lead in kills, while keeping the gold even across the board. It wasn’t until the mid game when Vitality’s teamfighting prowess excelled, and the combination of Carzzy’s Jinx and Alphari’s Gangplank ripped SK to shreds. In today’s game, Alphari accounted for over 27 percent of Vitality’s total damage, the most among Vitality’s five players, according to League stats site Oracle’s Elixir.
