Evil Geniuses beat out Immortals for the final LCS Mid-Season Showdown spot. Immortals came into the final week of the LCS Spring Split as one of the last bottom table teams with the ability to qualify for the postseason. TSM beat the young squad and eliminated them from any potential international competition this split.
The team sat at a 7-8 record before the final weekend and was hoping to jump Evil Geniuses at 8-7. But the team lost its first two games as Evil Geniuses won its first. Immortals and its fans are now looking towards the Summer Split.
Immortals regular season
Immortals came into the regular season, and the LCS Lock-In tournament, with goals of improvement. The team fielded two rookie players, Mohamed “Revenge” Kaddoura and David “Insanity” Challe, along with three veterans.
Immortals were a hit-and-miss squad throughout the Summer Split. By relying on its young solo laners, the team would often be at the mercy of rookie mistakes. This lead to the team dropping games to top table teams. But unlike other teams with young cores, Immortals had control of its postseason destiny. The other squads were either already out or had to rely on other teams losing out the final day.
Mid-Season Showdown teams
With Immortals eliminated, the playoff scene is now set. Cloud9, 100 Thieves, Team Liquid, TSM, Evil Geniuses and Dignitas have all qualified for the Mid-Season Showdown. Seeding has yet to be set for the upper and lower brackets. The playoff seeds will be decided by the final day of games, barring any tiebreakers.
The tournament will decide who will represent the region at the Mid-Season Invitational. Cloud9 are especially hungry for international play due to the pandemic canceling last season’s tournament.
But, in the teams way are the other two perennial LCS representatives, TSM and Team Liquid, and the three newer, or returning, organizations.
