FNC (13-5) vs. OG (13-5)
These two teams each won a game during the Spring Split with Origen winning in Week 1 and Fnatic returning the favor in Week 5. On paper it's a fairly even series as both teams boast strong rosters top to bottom and are dead even record wise at 13-5. Let's take a quick look at these teams and how they like to play.
Orgien is a very methodical team that gets labeled as a great macro roster, but when we dig deeper we notice that that isn't actually true. They are slow, with the second longest game time in the LEC, but their macro play isn't as good as people think considering their dragon control rate is a measly 48 percent, ahead of only xL, SK and Vitality, three teams that didn't make the playoffs. Where they make up for it is in the late game, posting a 77 percent Baron control rate. So their goal is to give up a few early drakes in order to scale, pick a teamfight late and get control of the Baron.
