Fnatic defeated Misfits Gaming in one of the most dramatic five-game series of the 2021 LEC Summer Split playoffs yesterday, securing a crucial matchup with G2 Esports in the next round of the postseason and keeping their hopes of qualifying for the League of Legends World Championship alive.

Fnatic and Misfits both pressed the pedal to the metal in terms of game tempo for the whole of the series, frequently going for ganks around the map and starting fights whenever the opportunity arose. There was practically a kill every minute in the first three games. Game two saw 32 kills in 25 minutes, while game three saw 38 kills in 31 minutes, with Fnatic accounting for 30 of those kills.

This series offered something for everyone, with Razork grabbing Baron from Bwipo in game one, Fnatic thrashing Misfits in game three, and Misfits narrowly defeating a last-minute base race effort in game four. It was nearly constant activity in a series that was shaping up to be one of the most exciting of the postseason thus far. Fnatic stood tall among the devastation after a slew of teamfights, dubious decisions, and a few game pauses.

Adam, Fnatic's rookie top laner, had a fantastic series after a poor showing against Team Vitality last week. In four of the five games, he played Renekton and did a good job with his placement and aggression. But it was in the series-deciding match that he chose Cho'Gath that he had his big moment. He even had a massive four-man knock-up that helped his team win the teamfight and, ultimately, the game.

However, Fnatic still had some flaws, such as their aggressiveness leading to them going too far for plays that didn't work out. Before moving on to the next round of the playoffs, they'll have to clean up their act. Misfits, on the other hand, will be disappointed, but they can still be proud of themselves for putting up such a strong fight against such an experienced and accomplished team.

Fnatic will now have to compete against G2 in a showdown between two of Europe's most illustrious teams. Both of these teams will be fighting for a chance to win the LEC and a spot in the World Championship in China in 2021. Although MAD Lions and Rogue have already purchased tickets for the competition, there is still one EU seat available on the plane.

This is the best script you could have written. Fnatic and G2 have been enemies for a long time, and this forthcoming showdown feels like the climactic encounter that will put a stop to the saga once and for all. Tomorrow, you can see all of the action when these two titans face off.
