The 2022 LEC Summer Season could not have started better for MAD Lions, as the former EU champion secured their first win over Team Vitality with the help of Nisqy. Moreover, the newest addition to the team demonstrated his ambition to play at the highest stage after his one-season break. Nisqy was definitely what MAD Lions needed to keep the starting roster warm. This was already reflected in their opening match against the LEC’s superteam, Vitality.
Here are the full results for day 1 of the 2022 LEC Summer Split
- Team Vitality 0 — 1 MAD Lions
- Team BDS 0 — 1 SK Gaming
- G2 Esports 1 — 0 Astralis
- Excel 1 — 0 Misfits Gaming
- Fnatic 1 — 0 Rogue
MAD vs Vitality
After tanky champions returned to the current meta in top lane with the latest patch, teams changed their game plan to use their power. With this in mind, VIT picked Sejuani for Alphari while MAD replied back with Ornn. However, there was something VIT did not take into account, Nisqy. Veteran mid laner returned to the pro stage where he left off. He established his lane kingdom against Perkz and dominated skirmishes with his stainless mechanics. MAD Lions closed out the opening game in 34. minute mark as they gave us a fun game to watch.
Fnatic, G2, and Excel kicked off the season with win
Excel, who surprised everyone in the previous season, kicked off the summer with a convincing victory over Misfits Gaming. The reigning champion, G2 Esports, dismantled Astralis in their first regular-season match, while Fnatic vanquished Rouge in an intense 35-minute game led by Wunder and Upset. SK Gaming were also another team that started the summer split with victory. We will see what this humble roster can do in the upcoming weeks.
