Quite quickly after League of Legends gained popularity, leagues started up.
LCS was split into NALCS and EULCS (currently LCS / LEC). Korea opened up their own league LCK and China - LPL.
Secondary leagues started to accommodate the ever growing fan base all over the world.
In this short article, I wanted to visit a few regions and check out what were the most dominant and the absolute worst performances in those leagues and by what team.
First let's look at Europe. There were quite a few dominant results, namely by G2 Esports who went 15-3 three different times. That 15-3 score is quite magical, SK-Gaming and Fnatic had a result of 15-3 also in different splits. But the most dominant team, the only team that went undefeated the whole split was Fnatic. Back in 2015 Summer.
