The quarterfinals of the Worlds 2020 group stage certainly saw a lot of action and even more upsets.

While this Worlds has been one of the most competitive in LoL history, no one quite expected the result of the Fnatic vs. Top Esports matchup. With Munchables expressing shock at Fnatic’s level of play, as well as Amazing admitting that after the first few games he believed that Fnatic could 3 – 0 China’s champions.

The Fantic defeat, however, means that Top Esports will move on to take on fellow LPL representatives Suning in the semi-finals, a team with whom they are very familiar. Both Munchables and Amazing deem Suning to be the underdogs, but acknowledge that their adaptability can’t be ignored.

Moving on to discuss the upcoming G2 vs. Damwon series, Amazing praises the confidence of Martin ‘Wunder’ Hansen and Luka ‘Perkz’ Perković that they can and will beat the Korean juggernauts. With G2 forever improving and Rasmus ‘Caps’ Winther striking fear into the hearts of Damwon fans, this matchup is one for the history books. Let’s see how G2 draft.

With the odds stacked against G2 and Suning, we’ll just have to see what insanity unfolds this weekend.

After the departure of star LoL player Rekkles from the Fnatic bot lane, the black and orange LEC Gods have finally announced his replacement: Astralis’ Upset. 

The LEC has certainly seen a shake up this year. With Luka ‘Perkz’ Perković leaving to join Cloud9 across the pond, a spot on the G2 roster opened up.

This was quickly filled by Martin ‘Rekkles’ Larssen, the former face of Fnatic, the team’s fans were wondering who would be his replacement. It’s big shoes to fill considering the legacy that Rekkles has left in the Fnatic jersey, so who has chosen to step up to the plate?

With LEC fans debating between Elias ‘Upset’ Lipp and Juš ‘Crownshot’ Marušič the race was on to see who Fnatic would sign.

Fnatic sign Astralis ADC Upset

When Crownshot announced that he would not be playing in any League of Legends tournament this year, fans were pretty certain that Upset would be the future ADC for the black and orange legends.

Therefore, when Fnatic announced Upset as ADC earlier today fans may not have been shocked, but they’re certainly excited to know who hold the future of the Fnatic botlane.

Upset has been a constantly high performing player ever since his days with Schalke 04. Taking what many believed to be a step up when he joined Origen (now Astralis) last season, Origen’s disappointing performance in the second split meant that roster readjustments were clearly needed.

With the ADC position being the least of Origen’s worries, it was pretty clear that Upset would be looking for a more competitive team to carve out his future with.

Will he be able to challenge the dynasty that Rekkles has left in his wake, or will he forever be caught in the Swedish legend’s shadow? Only time will tell, but we know Upset’s going to work extra hard to make his name sit side by side with the former Fnatic bot laner.
