After the long journey, the teams finally came to the finish line. This weekend the champion will be determined in the LCS, the North American League of Legends league. The last 3 teams in the final week will fight each other for the trophy and glory. The winner of the league will be eligible to represent their region at MSI 2022. Let’s take a closer look at the details of the final week and the opportunities for LoL betting.
The LCS regular season, with each team playing 18 games, ended on March 28. At the end of the league, Team Liquid, Cloud9, 100 Thieves, Evil Geniuses, FlyQuest and Golden Guardians managed to get ahead of their opponents and make it to the playoffs.
As in previous years, this year’s playoffs witnessed great excitement and surprises for esports betting followers. At the stage where the double bracket system was applied, Golden Guardians and FlyQuest said goodbye to the tournament in the first round. Later, Evil Geniuses defeated Cloud9 3-0 to send them home. On the other hand, 100 Thieves defeated Team Liquid 3-2, becoming the first team to reach the grand final. The other team that will make it to the final will be determined after the fight between Evil Geniuses and Team Liquid.
Last season’s champion 100 Thieves want to put another trophy in their museum. The team, which protected its roster at the beginning of the season and entered the league like that, managed to recover towards the end, although they started the regular season worse than expected. This recovery has resulted in them taking third place in the league.
Then, they started the playoffs against tough rival Cloud9. But this difficulty meant nothing to them. 100 Thieves almost crushed their opponent and managed to advance to the next round. The obstacle in the final step before the final was Team Liquid. Despite falling behind 2-0 in this series, 100T made an excellent comeback and won the series 3-2 and took their place in the final.
The mood and atmosphere in the team are great as seen on social media. The players are full of self-confidence and they are at a high level in terms of gameplay. 100 Thieves are the biggest contender for the trophy if the conditions are maintained.
Team Liquid have become a team that everyone is curious about with its new roster for 2022. They responded to this curiosity by taking first place with 14 wins in the regular season. Coming to the playoffs, they were the top favorites, but their frustrating loss against 100 Thieves pushed the team into another challenge.
Playing against Evil Geniuses in the Lower-Bracket final, Liquid must defeat their opponent. Otherwise, they will end the season they did very well with disappointment.
To be frank, few people expected Evil Geniuses to come this far. After the ups and downs throughout the season, the team’s performance in the playoffs was dazzling. The current opponent of the team is Team Liqud after sending FlyQuest and Cloud9 home.
Evil Geniuses are the underdog in the lower-bracket final. However, there is no reason for them not to defeat their strong opponent. They gave Liquid a hard time in their previous encounter and this time they can beat them and make a surprise.
LCS Finals week kicks off on April 23. Don’t miss the action!
