Just like every other League of Legends competition, LCS is also headed to the end of its regular season. With Evil Geniuses and 100 Thieves leading the league, North America’s LoL teams are fighting hard to get to Worlds 2022. Because there are eight playoff spots, everyone has a chance and only two teams will go back home after the regular season.
EG, 100, FlyQuest, Team Liquid, Cloud9 and Counter Logic Gaming have a significant lead that would probably keep them in the playoffs. However, Golden Guardians, Immortals, TSM and Dignitas are stuck between four to two wins, and they will fight for the two remaining spots left from the upper teams. We will see which two will be the lucky ones.
LCS Week 5 recap
Evil Geniuses kicked off the week and kept their incredible form going against CLG. Dhokla was 0-7-0 on Gwen while EG secured the win in 25 minutes with 22-3. The next match was another “top lane gap” with Bwipo crushing Immortals and bringing the victory to TL. Gangplank is incredibly dangerous these days and Bwipo showed it in professional play.
100 Thieves found a confident win against TSM, FBI’s Aphelios leading the team against one of the most chaotic teams currently. Although TSM is still close to finishing eight, they have to resolve the problems inside the team to accomplish anything. Cloud9 and Dignitas played a very close match that ended in favour of C9, and FlyQuest destroyed Golden Guardians in the last game of the day.
CLG’s incredible summer performance continued against Team Liquid. Crushing their enemies with Palafox’s Azir and Luger’s Miss Fortune, CLG moves on to the next week with a good result. Cloud9 put Jensen on Taliyah the next game against Golden Guardians and he was able to dominate the game, playing 7-0-11 and stopping Stixxay’s 6-4-0 Twitch from carrying the game.
Abbedagge followed the trend by carrying 100 Thieves to victory with a 7-1-5 Azir performance against their most important rival: Evil Geniuses. EG couldn’t perform at all against 100 Thieves, and although they are still leading the LCS, 100 Thieves secured the psychological advantage.
TSM once again disappointed their fans after a weak performance against Immortals, losing the game in half an hour with a 5-12 score. Following that, Josedeodo showed another solid performance to help toucouille and Johnsun get the advantages that would bring the victory to FlyQuest against Dignitas.
TSM’s internal problems, the fight between EG and 100 Thieves, TL - C9 duo trying to get back at the top of North America: LCS has many stories this season.

LCS Week 6 schedule
Check out the schedule below:
After a chaotic 2022, this week is one of the most important ones for TSM. They will first face one of the strongest teams in the league, Team Liquid, and then Golden Guardians, one of their rivals for the playoffs spots. Even one win would be precious for them, but it doesn’t look like they can manage it with the intermittent internal issues.
TL faces C9 on Sunday night, and the winner will get closer to the top two, EG and 100. Liquid seems to be one step ahead of Cloud9, but don’t forget that C9’s form has been improving since week one. EG vs FLY will be played one hour earlier from that match where EG will be the favourite, but it won’t be an easy one. Josedeodo and his friends will be prepared for EG’s fast-paced playstyle.
