Hamburg was INSAAAAAAANE! Riot went all out in Northern Germany this weekend - an amazing arena, untouchable production and immense fan support. An electric 14,000 strong crowd packed out the Barclaycard on Saturday afternoon, reminding us exactly why we give so much of ourselves to esports. Even after such a topsy-turvy split, our LCS side felt nothing but love as we rounded out Spring in (almost) the perfect way.
The boys know how strong they are. As comfort picks melded into a really tough to handle style, the team were really able to throw their weight around on the Rift, first trouncing Misfits to secure a playoff spot before sweeping aside heavyweights H2K. Defeat to G2 stung. This was still a packed out arena though, and we had a chance to put one hand on a place at Worlds - only three teams get the chance to travel to China this Autumn so it was so important we stake a claim early on.
