LCS top seed 100 Thieves survive NRG comeback, eliminate reigning champs in 5 games

It took the full series but LCS Spring Split top seeds 100 Thieves have kept their MSI dreams alive with a 3-2 win over NRG, sending the 2023 Summer Split and NA Worlds’ representatives packing in the first round of the playoff lower bracket.

After a 3-0 wipeout at the hands of Cloud9, 100T needed to overcome the reigning LCS champs if they wanted to keep their top-seeded regular split run going, but they did just that, warding off an NRG fightback that included multiple Baron steals from Contractz and a full five-game series. Player of the series Quid noted post-game that, compared to the C9 loss, he felt a lot more comfortable despite this series going the distance.
