The EU LCS kicked off their Summer playoffs a earlier today with the Spring finalist Unicorns of Love starting things off in the first best-of-five series against the relatively young Misfits squad. UOL had an impressive Summer Split finishing at the 2nd spot Group B of the EU LCS. The Misfits on the other hand, barely secured a Playoffs spot after finishing 3rd in their group overall. MSF are fighting for their chance to represent the region at Worlds for the first time since the team was only created earlier this year.
The Unicorns looked completely out of depth for the duration of the best-of-five series. The veteran squad from German played mostly on the back foot against a surging MSF who were very determined to advance to the next stage in the playoffs. Misfits carry Hans Sama found an amazing start to the series by securing a well-earned Pentakill on Tristana as they looked to close out the first game in the series. There is nothing quite as demoralizing as perishing at the hands of a rampaging AD Carry going for a penta. Misfits continue to drive forward their momentum throughout the series with a very commanding 3-0 clean victory over the veteran League of Legends team. The Miami Heat backed Misfits will move on in the 2017 EU LCS Summer Playoffs.
