The 2022 LCS Summer Finals are here. Who will be the number one seeded team that will go to Worlds from North America? Will it be Evil Geniuses, 100 Thieves, or Cloud9?

While Cloud9 waited in the grand finals, Evil Geniuses and 100 Thieves had to battle it out in the semi-finals to earn their spot to face them, but how will their best of five series end up?

Everything is on the line now and there is no room for error. The season for these three teams has led up to this moment and their legacies will be remembered.

The defending spring champions’ season in the LCS ended after their loss to 100 Thieves. Though they were by far the best team during the regular split, they fell short of defending their title in Chicago. They did end up playing without the roster that they had played with during the regular split, as Danny decided to step back from the team before the finals in Chicago, and their academy player Kaori stepped in to fill his shoes.

Despite his shoes being gigantic to fill, he did his job admirably. Every game that he got Lucian, he looked like he was in his comfort zone, making plays and looking fearless. When he was off Lucian, however, it was clear that he was not as good a team fighter as Danny is.

The season is not fully over for Evil Geniuses, however. The next time we will see the roster will be in Mexico City for the 2022 Worlds play-ins. It was confirmed at the Evil Geniuses press conference after their game that Kaori will be playing with the main roster, and Danny will not be present.

LCS Summer Finals: Cloud9 vs 100 Thieves Grand Finals results

  • Cloud9 > 100 Thieves
  • 100 Thieves < Cloud9
  • Cloud9 > 100 Thieves

The 2022 LCS Summer champion, and the North American first seed at Worlds, will be Cloud9. After a dominating performance against 100 Thieves, they were able to lift their fifth trophy in franchise history. The series never seemed to be in doubt, with 100 Thieves floundering as Cloud9 did whatever they wanted in each game.

For 100 Thieves, their dreams of a second championship are done in 2022. They did not look like themselves, playing sloppily and not seeming to respect Cloud9 and their players. They were not able to stop Berzerker in team fights and did not play as a team. Hopefully, they are able to fix their problems before Worlds comes in two weeks.

For both teams, they are not done for the year. Since both teams were playing in the LCS Summer Finals, they were both guaranteed a spot in the 2022 Worlds Group Stage. They were both placed in their groups, minus one team from the play-in stage that will join them after it is all decided between the twelve teams participating in it.
