Misfits take down the UOL! Who saw this coming?
UOL got totally dominated by Misfits with a 3-0 score during their battle, which granted MSF an advance to the semifinals taking place Saturday, August 26-27, where they’re matched up with Fnatics.
Finishing second in their EU LCS group, Unicorns were the favorites going into that matchup after a great run in the Spring Playoffs.
Unicorns of Love were underperforming, which enabled the Misfits to manhandle the UOF squad, boosting their chances of earning an EU spot at Worlds in September.
Misfits crushed it early in the bottom lane to set the tempo for this matchup.
The game continued to slow until Misfits burst to life after the 25-minute mark at which point they extended their lead with some strong attack combinations.
ADC Steven “Hans sama” Live finalized the first game by producing a Pentakill on Tristana and secured the win.

In game two, MST dominated in every lane and by doing so they were able to invade the enemy jungle and take complete control of the match. As time went on, Misfits broke apart the Unicorns by strangling them away from objectives to take the second win.
In third and final game, Unicorns got their second wind and showed small glimpses of their capabilities, but it was too little too late.
Misfits got their shot at the semifinals, while Unicorns will have to survive the Gauntlet in September to get Europe’s third seed at Worlds 2017.
