Cloud9, 100 Thieves and Team SoloMid are leading the charts at the LCS
The action is ALREADY underway, so we suggest you start catching on to the latest happenings at the LCS Summer Split 2021.
For the records, this ninth iteration of the North American Summer Split is a tad different from the way it’s been in years past: For the first time, team records stemming from the Spring season carried over unto the ongoing tourney, effectively raising the stakes and adding a little bit of pressure for the teams to perform at their very best.
The event is split into a Group stage (lasting between June 4th and August 1st) that will play out as a triple round robin (Best of 1s), with all 10 participating teams playing a total of 27 matches each. This will be followed by a Playoffs stage (aka LCS Championship, Best of 5s), consisting of the surviving 8 teams to emerge from the group stage. From the latter, only the three best teams will land a ticket to the Worlds 2021, and will get a chance to split a humongous cash pot of $170,000.
The participating teams in the LCS Summer Split 2021 are 100 Thieves, Cloud9, CLG, Team Liquid, Dignitas, Evil Geniuses, FlyQuest, Golden Guardians, Immortals and Team SoloMid. And as per the results held during the first two weekends of Summer Split, both Cloud9 and 100 Thieves are comfortably leading the rankings with W/L ratios of 17/7 and 16/8, in the exact same nominal order.
