The LEC 2021 Summer Split ended the last week of August 1st. There were a few surprises and some big upsets, but overall, it was a brilliant rift.
However, now is the time to focus on the playoffs because they will determine the teams from Europe that will play league of legends World 2021
Ten teams participated in the Split Summer. Among them, six teams qualified and four were eliminated. For Excel, it was a heavy heart because they failed to get to the playoffs for the sixth time in a row.
The worst part, however, is that they moved a few inches away even though they had to face the G2 Esports, which is considered one of the titans of the scene.
Fortunately, Vitality managed to slip through and secure last place, thanks to G2’s win against Excel.
