We’re back in action, and the stakes are high — the LCS Summer Playoffs are taking off; the top eight LCS teams will cross swords in a bid for the 2020 World Championship. The teams have earned their spots through epic victories and jaw-dropping action in the Summer Season, but they must prove their worth once more. With only three qualifying spots up for grabs, we’re in for Rift-shattering plays! Let’s recap where we’re at and take a look at some LCS 2020 betting options.
North America’s 10 best teams went head-to-head to secure one of eight spots in the Playoffs. Team Liquid dominated the competition with a 15-3 Win-Loss ratio, Cloud9 were right on their heels at 13-5. Both teams are at the top of the LCS 2020 Summer Standings and will start off in Round Two of the winners bracket.
FlyQuest and Team SoloMid had an impressive showing as well, both finishing the run with 12 Wins and 6 Losses. Evil Geniuses got off to a shaky start but managed to find their footing in the last few matches (8-10) and head into the Round One winners bracket along with Golden Guardians (9-9), TSM and FlyQuest.
In the final match of the split, Dardoch’s Olaf and Aphromoo’s flawless Soraka plays secured the win for Dignitas, and with it the eighth and final spot in the LCS Summer Playoffs. Unfortunately, the final standings left Counter Logic Gaming and Immortals trailing in the dust.
The LCS Summer 2020 Playoffs will span three rounds and conclude in the early September Finals.
Round One started on 13 August, with TSM and Golden Guardians heading into the first skirmish. In a crushing 3-0 stomp, GG came out on top and are moving on to Round Two.
FlyQuest made their play against Evil Geniuses on Friday, 14 August. After five exhausting matches, FlyQuest soared into Round Two with a score of 3-2 against Evil Geniuses, who are now demoted to the losers bracket.
Dignitas and 100 Thieves, in the losers bracket, stormed the Rift against TSM and EG over the weekend. Unfortunately, the underdogs were knocked out of the running in two clean (0-3) sweeps. Pending results from the first matches of Round Two, TSM and EG are awaiting the losers and will be wrapping up Round Two next weekend.
As the first seed, Team Liquid has the pick of their opponent, and they’re going to clash with Golden Guardians on 21 August, leaving C9 to face FlyQuest a day prior. With the first two eliminations now behind us, Round Two is sure to turn up the heat!
Round One: 13-16 August.
Round Two: 20-23 August.
Round Three: 29-30 August.
Finals: 5-6 September.
