Team Liquid – Evil Geniuses
Team Liquid was the closest competitor of Cloud9 for the leadership spot until the last week of the competition. The well-known esports organisation didn’t let the chase go and finally secured the first spot after C9’s back-to-back losses against 100 Thieves and FlyQuest. Despite all the visa issues regarding Jo “CoreJJ” Yong-in, TL managed to become the best team in the regular season once again.
While CoreJJ was out, Bill “Eyla” Nguyen covered his position perfectly and the team faced two losses with him on the rift. On the other hand, Evil Geniuses barely made it to the playoffs and shifted gear during the last week to clinch themselves the fourth spot. With Jeong “Impact” Eon-young and Kacper “Inspired” Sloma on the starting roster, the team showed that anything is possible. It will be a tough matchup for sure but rationally thinking, Team Liquid is one step ahead.
Cloud9 – 100 Thieves
After parting ways with most of the roster, Cloud9 came back even stronger and had the leadership spot until the last week. After facing two losses in a row, the North American team lost its spot to Team Liquid. However, Cloud9 has been one of the favorites of this split’s LCS trophy and the team is still one of the strongest candidates. The latest LCS champion, 100 Thieves, faced six losses this split, only one more than Cloud9. The players had ups and downs throughout the split and they even faced back-to-back losses during a period. However, with Can “Closer” Çelik’s lead, 100 Thieves bounced back in the last weeks of the regular season to show their potential. Moreover, the team also managed to beat Cloud9 in the last week of action. It will be a much closer competition for sure and it is hard to predict the winner.
Lastly, the hopes will not die for the losing teams as they will continue their journey from the lower bracket. Golden Guardians and FlyQuest are the lower bracket teams, waiting for their opponents. The playoffs will start on April 2 with Cloud9’s battle against 100 Thieves and Evil Geniuses’ test against Team Liquid will be the day after.
