Worlds or bust: Stalwart TSM set to meet surging Team Liquid in high-stakes second round LCS playoff match

There was once a year where a potential meeting between Team Liquid and TSM wouldn’t take place until at least the semifinals of any LCS playoff bcket. This weekend, though, the two titans of the North American League of Legends scene will meet in just the second round of the 2021 LCS Championship, marking the earliest playoff meeting ever between the two fnchises in their long-tenured histories. 

Largely, the reasoning behind the unreasonably early meeting between the two teams boils down to TSM securing their first top playoff seed in any LCS split since 2017, in addition to Liquid snagging their lowest playoff-qualifying seed since they last finished in fifth place in the summer of 2016. Those two oppositely trending broken droughts have resulted in a rematch of one of last summer’s semifinal matches just two rounds into this year’s LCS playoff bcket.
