This past weekend, 100 Thieves and Team Liquid claimed the first two berths at the 2021 League of Legends World Championship that are up for gbs to the teams of the LCS. While it’s still yet to be determined which order those two already-qualified teams will seed themselves into the Worlds field, it’s a guantee that they’ll be in China later this year. The fact that they’ve qualified for the semifinals of the LCS Championship through the upper bcket of the playoffs ensures that they can’t drop out of Worlds contention.
But there are six teams left in the discussion for the LCS title, and of those six, four still have a chance at snagging NA’s last available berth at the World Championship. To do so, they’ll have to win two matches in a condensed tournament setting within the lower bcket. And fnkly, the stakes couldn’t be simpler: Win two matches and go to Worlds, lose one and go home.
