Staying indoors is about to get a lot more exciting for esports fans as League of Legends esports is revving up for the final showdowns of the Spring Split. It has certainly been one of the most interesting and inspiring seasons to date!
From Machi Esports’ dominant twelve-game winning streak in the PCS, to Vici Gaming’s amazing upset over RNG in the LPL; and from the heartbreak of four-time LCS champion Team
Liquid missing the playoffs to LEC’s Misfits snapping G2 Esports’ attempt at a perfect season – it has been a whirlwind of a season in Spring.
Throughout April and May, all 12 regional leagues will hold their 2020 Spring Finals and we invite fans to catch all the thrills, upsets, and victories with us online at lolpcs.com and watch.lolesports.com. Here’s a quick look at some of our leagues as they wrap their regular season and head into their playoffs:
- PCS: The first Playoffs for the multi-city PCS sees Taiwan’s Machi Esports and ahq eSports club as the top-seeded teams in the upper bracket. Malaysia’s Berjaya Dragons and Thailand’s Nova Esports have also earned spots in the upper bracket, and are hopeful of upsetting the Playoff favorites to advance to the latter rounds.
- LEC: After taking down Origen in the first round of Playoffs, Fnatic looks to return to the Finals, but standing in their way is the rookie squad of MAD Lions, who shocked Europe with their surprise upset over G2 Esports.
- LCS: Cloud9 is the front-runner for the Spring Split title after only dropping one game in the regular season. Will they finally hoist the championship trophy again, what would be their first since 2014? With defending champion Team Liquid not qualifying for Playoffs, any of the top teams could capture the title.
- LCK: Gen.G and T1 solidified themselves early in the season as the teams to beat, though T1 leads their head-to-head series this split 2-0.
- LPL: The two World Champions from the LPL, Invictus Gaming (2018) and FunPlus Phoenix (2019), have had solid performances this season, dropping only three games total between them. Many eyes are also on eStar, which has had one of the strongest team debuts in LPL history with a 9W-4L record*.
