KOI strangle Vitality in convincing sweep, become first team to reach LEC Winter playoffs

The first berth in the 2023 LEC Winter Split playoff stage was on the line in today’s match between Vitality and KOI, and KOI wasted no time gobbling it up. With two quick wins, KOI punched their ticket to the top four, becoming the first team to reach the first edition of the LEC’s shiny new playoff bracket. 

This past offseason, the LEC completely revamped its format, and the changes have already paid dividends. Despite the playoff stage of each split containing fewer teams, the “group stage” of the Winter Split has had a playoff atmosphere to it thus far, with each best-of-three series making teams feel as though their split really might be on the line.
