On Sunday the 2016 NA LCS Spring Split came to an end, and after 18 rounds of games we finally have the official seeds heading into the NA LCS Spring Playoffs.
Team Immortals closed their run with a 17-1 record, claiming the first seed into the playoffs. The team ended their run by defeating Team Impulse, granting them a direct seed into the semifinals. This doesn’t come as a surprise, as the team has been dominating the NA LCS for several weeks, only dropping one game to the second place team Counter Logic Gaming who ended with a 13-5 record.
Team Renegades won their last four games ending with a 6-13 record. Unfortunately for them this was not enough to secure Seventh Place, and with it, a spot for the Summer Split, leaving them battling for a spot in the LCS relegation tournament. Team Renegades had important roster changes by the end of the season, leading to better results. Unfortunately for them the changes didn’t come soon enough.
In Seventh Place we have Team Echo Fox, securing themselves a spot in the Summer Split with a 6-12 record.
The first round for the NA LCS playoff is going to be really exciting. Cloud9 finished the split in third place with a 12-6 record, placing them on the bracket against the team that won the 2015 NA LCS Spring Playoffs (and took their spot for the World Championship in 2015), Team Solo Mid. TSM ended in fifth place with a 9-9 record and will be facing Cloud9 in the first round of the playoffs.
Team Liquid ended the split in fourth place with a 9-9 record, followed by NRG Esports in fifth place (tied with team TSM) with a 10-8 record.
The NA LCS Spring Playoffs will be held at the Mandalay Bay Arena in Las Vegas, and will run from April 2 to April 17. Bellow you can see the Brackets for the NA LCS Spring Playoffs (and if you are not familiar with the LCS format you can read about it in our previous post).
