Esports: caPs says strong starts can help G2 Esports

G2 Esports mid laner Rasmus "caPs" Borregaard Winther believes his side need to work on starting games strongly following their exit at the Mid-Season Invitational and is confident they can show a different side to themselves at this year's World Championship.

In the upcoming League of Legends LFL Summer, meanwhile, Team GO are 5/4 to beat Solary, who are 4/7 to prevail.

Mid laner caPs was talking after his G2 Esports side were knocked out of the Mid-Season Invitational at the semi-final stage by T1.

T1 prove too hot for G2

G2 dominated the initial group phase with an 8-0 win-loss record, before placing in the top four in the Rumble Stage of the competition with four wins and four defeats.

Red-hot T1 awaited them in the semi-finals and prevailed to set up a final with Royal Never Give Up.

But G2 can reflect on a pretty decent performance in the event and caPs believes if the team can improve their early game in future tournaments, they could surprise a few at the Worlds, considered the most prestigious event in League of Legends, later this year.

Speaking about his side's performance at the MSI to Inven Global, caPs said: "There are many takeaways from this MSI - playing against really insane players always, I learn a bunch."

Cleaner starts needed says caPs

"I think for us as a team, we probably have to clean up the early game a little bit - in a lot of games, we fell quite behind very fast and it was hard to make a comeback.

"If we had some close early games, we could have shown all the things we showed in Europe in the later parts of the game - so we're looking out for those, and if we could do that, you'll probably see a different G2 at Worlds."
