GameWard: Second place so far
This split has started very well for GameWard. In the first week, the boys had no problem winning against Misfits Premier and defeated the reigning EU Masters champions, Karmine Corp. In week two, GameWard continued their win streak by beating Team Oplon, but at the end of the week, Team GO halted GameWard's winning streak in a very close encounter. Week three started with a win against Vitality.Bee, and towards the end of the week, the boys defeated Team BDS Academy, thus going 5-1 on the three-week scoreline. This super week GameWard will face Mirage Elyandra, LDLC OL, and Solary, all of whom can be beaten. GameWard beat Mirage Elyandra in their opening match of the week with no problems, scoring 6-1.
GameWard was able to get into the LFL as a team that was supposed to expand the league from 8 to 10 teams, but they ended up just replacing another organization. Since 2020, GameWard has started performing quite well in France's main league. A stable 5th place in 2020 and the spring split of 2021 suited everyone, but the summer split of 2021 didn't go too well, finishing in only 7th place.
This season's spring split was the worst ever for GameWard. After finishing in 8th place with a 7-11, the management decided to take a risk by leaving the squad unchanged for the summer split.
LDLC OL: Three weeks without defeat
LDLC OL's journey on this split started very well. In the first week, the boys picked up a win in a close encounter against Team BDS Academy, but then it became tough. Team Oplon also had a serious fight but couldn't take the win from LDLC OL. The second week started much better. Mirage Elyandra tried to do something, but it wasn't enough, and Solary couldn't even match anything. The third week started with an unrealistically close win against Team GO, and at the end of the week, LDLC OL defeated Misfits Premier, thus going 6-0 at the end of three weeks. This super week the boys will face Vitality.Bee, GameWard, and Karmine Corp who will be very problematic to beat. The week started with a solid win against Vitality.Bee, thus sending LDLC OL to a 7-0 scoreline.
LDLC OL is a French professional eSports organization based in Lyon. OL is an acronym for the French football club Olympique Lyonnais. They were previously known as Team-LDLC. This organization's journey began in 2015, where until 2018, the boys picked up one trophy after another. In 2019, LDLC OL took part in the LFL, where they became champions of the summer split, spring split, and season finale. Things were less fortunate in 2020, but the boys were at least in the top 4 at all the splits and EU Masters stages. 2021 was the worst year for LDLC OL. 9th place in the spring split and 5th place in the summer stage.
The spring split of 2022 put things back on track. The boys finished the main stage in the first place, 13-5, and in the playoff stage, they first demolished Karmine Corp 3-0 on the maps and then won 3-2 on the maps against Team BDS Academy in the final split. EU Masters also came out very well for LDLC OL. The boys made the playoffs without losing a single match in the group. The playoffs made them sweat. After beating X7 Esports and AGO ROGUE 3-0 on the maps, LDLC OL lost to Karmine Corp 3-1 on the maps in the final, thus taking only second place. The organization made no substitutions for the summer split.
