LEC Finals MVP - Rogue Comp

Rogue came to Malmö as underdogs and left as the LEC champions, humbling Fnatic and G2 Esports in two quick series. On this stage, AD Carry Markos "Comp" Stamkopoulos made a statement that he should be considered one of LEC's best.

After two weeks of playoffs, only the top three teams of the ELC remained to play two last matches. Having lost to G2 Esports, Rogue would have to take on Fnatic in the first Best of Five series. Meanwhile, Fnatic fought through the lower bracket with three consecutive victories against Excel Esports, Misfits Gaming and MAD Lions. Meanwhile, G2 was waiting in the final, eager to take on the victor to defend their spring title.

In our predictions, we expected Fnatic to defeat Rogue - though not without a close fight - and at any rate for G2 to triumph against the challenger, whoever it was. However, Rogue had a different plan and in a series of decisive victories showed just how much they had improved in a single week. Chief to their efforts was their bot laner Markos "Comp" Stamkopoulos. He would face what many saw as the two best bot laners of the LEC - Fnatic’s Elias "Upset" Lipp and G2’s Victor "Flakked" Lirola Tortosa. In the end, however, it was Comp who wold stand as the undisputed champion of the LEC 2022 summer split bot laners.

The Best By Far

Comp went to the Finals in Sweden often considered one of the best of the new generation of European AD Carries, but in his first match, he would have to face the man many credited as being the best marksman in the LEC at the moment - Fnatic's Upset. In that first series, Comp played three games of Lucian against Upset's Zeri and one Zeri when Fnatic picked Sivir for their AD Carry. After an emphatic loss in the opening game where Rogue had no answer for Fnatic mid laner Marek "Humanoid" Brázda on Sylas, Rogue picked up the pace and Comp proved himself up to the challenge. Both AD carries played to their limits, but in the end, Rogue won - and over the four games, Comp had a combined KDA of 22/7/20, with four of those deaths being from the opening game loss and his last game being a stunning 13/1/7 Lucian show. However, he wasn't done.

In the finals, Rogue's marksman picked a different AD carry each game - opening with Kalista, then following up with Caitlyn and Sivir - and terrorized G2 in every game. He ended the first round with a memorable Pentakill - second for the playoffs and third in just under a month - but he had plenty of amazing moments in all three games. As the final Nexus exploded, his KDA was a spotless 24/0/14.

Stats for the Week

Comp ended the week with a total of 46 kills, 7 deaths and 32 assists - and if that is not impressive enough, 4 of these deaths were from the first game against Fnatic, the only one Rogue would lose that weekend. He also scored a Penta in his first game against G2 - his third in just under a month after he first managed this feat against Excel in the last week of the regular season before doing it again versus MAD Lions in the first round of playoffs.
