After a very exciting season of competition, North American LoL is looking to conclude before Worlds 2022. Accordingly, the LCS 2022 Championship is kicking off within the upcoming days. Read on to learn how to watch this awesome event!
Over the past few months, the 10 franchised teams have fought for a chance to reach the LCS 2022 Championship event. Notably, only the top 8 teams from the Group Stage would make it to the Playoffs.
Accordingly, with the regular season completed, we have our 8 teams competing for the coveted seeds for Worlds 2022:
- Counter Logic Gaming
- Team Liquid
- Evil Geniuses
- 100 Thieves
- Golden Guardians
Running from 20th August all the way to 11th September, the competition will also feature a prize pool of $200,000.
From the 8 teams competing, only the top 3 teams will qualify for Worlds 2022. Only the top 2 will directly qualify to the Main Competition while 3rd will be sent to the Play-Ins.
Let’s learn more about the format below!
With regards to the format, it’s rather simple. Specifically, just like the years before, a double elimination bracket will go down with BO5 matches to sort out the competition.
Bearing this in mind, here are the seeded matches for the bracket:
Upper Bracket Quarterfinals
- Counter Logic Gaming vs Cloud9
- Team Liquid vs FlyQuest
Upper Bracket Semifinals
- Evil Geniuses vs TBD
- 100 Thieves vs TBD
Lower Bracket Round 1
- TSM vs TBD
- Golden Guardians vs TBD
For those unaware, a double elimination bracket implies that teams have two lifelines from the Upper Bracket. Moreover, a loss in the Upper Bracket means that a team falls to the Lower Bracket.
Then a loss here results in that team being eliminated from the competition. At the end, one team from the Upper Bracket and from the Lower Bracket will meet in the Grand Final.
Notably, the advantage for the Upper Bracket team is that less matches are needed to be played to make it to the Grand Final.
