LEC 2021 Summer Split is in the books! Ten world-class League of Legends lineups battled it out to be crowned kings of Europe, and to lock one of three illustrious places at the 2021 World Championship in China later this year. Here’s how the eight-week-long campaign played out.


  • Rogue finish as Europe’s best with 13 wins
  • G2 Esports stage four-week reverse to sneak into second
  • Excel miss playoffs again in last-round heartbreak

The League of Legends European Championship regular season is over, and Rogue has again emerged victorious. Their 13-5 record is a season-best, keeping them ahead of G2 Esports, MAD Lions, and Misfits Gaming (all 12-6).

Fnatic finished fifth, despite a strong start to Summer.

Perhaps the biggest shock in the standings is eight-time champs G2 squeezing into second place. The team looked shaky in early Summer, with many tapping solo laners Wunder and Caps as underperformers in the star-studded roster. The lineup turned it around in the final four weeks, however, to earn an upper bracket seed alongside Rogue in a surprise form reversal.

Team Vitality, led by ex-FNC jungler Selfmade, rounds out the finals teams.

The top six teams now prepare to contest the LEC Summer playoffs, and take the first step on the road to this year’s World Championship in China.

FC Schalke 04 bow out in last place

On the other end of the standings, Astralis, SK Gaming, and Excel Esports all missed the postseason. The early season end marks Excel’s sixth consecutive campaign without a playoffs run in Europe’s top league.

FC Schalke 04 finished dead last with a 3-15 record.

The wooden-spoon outing marks Schalke’s last in the LEC, following a $31.5m slot sale to Team BDS due to the club’s Bundesliga relegation.

The German football giants have had a League of Legends roster for the past six years, after acquiring Elements’ EU LCS slot in 2016. The team was relegated in its first split, but returned to the top flight in 2018 with a promotion win over Ninjas in Pyjamas after finishing second in the Challenger Series.

S04 were EU LCS runners-up in 2018, losing 3-1 to Fnatic in Madrid. They competed in four playoffs campaigns since 2016, finishing third in 2019.
