Misfits Gaming talent Matus "Neon" Jakubcik has praised his team for the progress they have made in the LEC Spring Split this year but concedes the team have allowed emotions to play too much of a part in their campaign.
In the LEC Spring Split play-offs on Saturday, meanwhile, Rogue can be backed at 8/11 against Fnatic, who are 1/1 to come out on top.
In the regular Spring Split season, Misfits managed to secure a third-place finish in the standings with 12 wins from their 18 matches, despite many expecting them to struggle.
Key to their success has been Vincent "Vetheo" Berrie, who is only 19 and who has been one of the biggest storylines for Misfits this season, having evolved into a great mid-laner in the LEC Spring with excellent playmaking and laning abilities.
It has been a split to remember but, after losing to red-hot Rogue in their first match of the play-offs, Misfits have now dropped into the lower bracket of the play-offs and need to win two more matches to reach the final.

And while "Neon" believes his side deserve credit for exceeding with a fairly inexperienced roster, he admits there are still areas of play they need to work on.
Speaking about their performance in the LEC Spring, "Neon" said: "Considering that most people put us on the very lower end of the standings right before the split started, I think what we've done, especially with two rookies, is already a really good result.
"With rookies it can go both ways, but it's very hard to expect to be one of the best teams from the get-go.
"I would say our biggest weakness is playing too emotionally - a lot of times, we play with our emotions rather than how we should actually play the game."
