It’s week six in the LCS, and that means that it’s almost time for the Spring Split playoffs, but who will make it? The next couple of weeks, including this week, are crucial for every team that is trying to make it from the bottom half of the league, and who is going to lock in the first two seeds. Will Counter Logic Gaming be able to make it after a lackluster start to the split, and will Golden Guardians falter in their next games, making them fall out of contention?

Golden Guardians and FlyQuest Begin To Falter
The two most surprising teams that have performed above their expectations, FlyQuest and Golden Guardians, showed signs of weakness this weekend. Both teams did not pick up a single win during Week Six, and in some cases did not look good in the process. Golden Guardians, for example, had an 11 thousand gold lead over 100 Thieves, but due to poor choices in the middle to late game, managed to throw their lead and lose the game. During their Counter Logic Gaming match, they didn’t manage to grow much of a lead, and never really had the game in hand at any point.
If these two teams really want to make a mark and go far at the end of the split and have a real shot of going to MSI, they really need to fix their middle to late game calls. That includes better calls for when to take Baron, navigating fights around the dragon pit, or picking a target during a team fight. If these aren’t fixed, then their hopes of making it to Texas for the Spring Finals are far from their grasp.
As the 2022 LCS Spring Split winds to a close, make sure that you don’t miss any of the action leading into playoffs. The split continues on Saturday, March 19th with Immortals Progressive taking on 100 Thieves at 1:30 PM PST/ 4:30 PM EST/ 8:30 PM GMT.
