Did you know that the LEC tournament used to have a million-view match and was also the match with the largest and only viewership in this tournament?
The LEC region has almost completed the transfer operation for the 2023 season when the blockbusters have exploded. Looking back at the LEC in the past few years, we no longer see the boom, the highlights like the way Fnatic or G2 performed in 2018 and 2019. Instead, the two regions LCK and LPL is showing complete superiority with the new generation and many excellent players next.
Recalling the golden age of that year, we saw Fnatic go head-to-head with IG at the 2018 World Championship Finals, G2 Esports crowned at MSI 2019 and also against FPX in the same year. Although only having one international championship after the time of Fnatic Worlds 2011 but that is enough for fans to have more faith in the players from Europe, hopefully one day not far, LEC can can become a real counterweight in the China-Korea song race.
The LEC tournament had a very explosive time after many excellent international achievements. The highlight is definitely the match that reached 1 million views only of the LEC tournament up to the present time. It will certainly be a confrontation between the two most influential esports organizations in Europe and the world, G2 Esports and Fnatic. That was the LEC Summer 2020 final even though G2 Esports once again destroyed Fnatic quickly with a score of 3-0.
The previous winning bracket final between the two teams, also reached more than 900,000 viewers and also became the 2nd most viewed match in LEC history. In addition, the confrontation between these two teams and this predestined organization always attracts a large number of followers in Europe and around the world.
Although at the moment, G2 and Fnatic are still on the way to regain their glory and the LEC, but perhaps this is not easy. Hopefully in the next season, both teams will continue to play stably, participate in Worlds and play their best with exciting matches.
