2022 LCS Lock In Favorites Out

Coming off of winning the 2021 LCS Summer Split, 100 Thieves were favored to win the whole tournament. Coming into the day, in fact, the analyst desk predicted that 100 Thieves would sweep Dignitas Qntmpay in the best of three. Not only did that not happen today, but it was also Dignitas that had the sweep of 100 Thieves.

To add on top of the upset win of the day, Dignitas had their starter jungler, River, show up in North America on Thursday, and already they have beaten the defending LCS champions. Other members of the roster showed out today, namely Blue in the mid lane and Neo in the bottom lane. If this team can build more momentum in this tournament and carry it into the 2022 LCS Spring Split, they might be a team to be reckoned with.

Team Liquid Move On

The second series of the day was Team Liquid taking on FlyQuest. To start the series off, we all got the first look at CoreJJ and Hans Sama in the bot lane. Because CoreJJ still has been having trouble with his green card, we haven’t been able to see them up till now, and now that we have, they look as good as billed. The hype around this team, with Bwippo, Santorin, Bjergsen, Hans Sama and CoreJJ as their starters, could very well be the best team in the LCS right from the start of the regular season.

The Quarterfinals of the 2022 LCS Lock In Tournament continue with the first series of Evil Geniuses taking on Golden Guardians at 12:30 PM PST/ 3:30 PM PST/ 8:30 PM GST. Both series of the day can be watched at lolesports.com.
