UPDATE March 27: Following Evil Geniuses’ ninth win at the 2022 LCS Spring Split, Dignitas QNTMPAY is the fourth and final team to miss the postseason alongside Counter Logic Gaming, TSM, and Immortals. FlyQuest and Golden Guardians could both potentially finish 8-10 in the LCS Spring Split, which would tie the two teams with Dignitas QNTMPAY, but the 0-2 head-to-head record that DIG has against FLY and GG prevents them of tiebreaker matches with either team.
UPDATE March 26: Counter Logic Gaming was mathematically eliminated from 2022 LCS Spring Playoff contention. CLG lost their 11th game of the LCS Spring Split to TSM, meaning their best possible record to end the season would be 7-11, good for 7th place at best.
UPDATE March 25: TSM is the 2nd team to be mathematically eliminated from the 2022 LCS Spring Split following their 12th Spring Split loss. One game after Immortals Progressive was eliminated, TSM lost to 100 Thieves and will miss the postseason for the first time in LCS history.
After their 12th LCS Spring Split 2022 loss at the hands of Counter Logic Gaming, Immortals Progressive became the first LCS team to be mathematically eliminated from post-season competition.
Immortals Progressive shook up their roster for the final week of the 2022 LCS Spring Split, bringing AD carrier Jason “Wildturtle” Tran back into the starting lineup after Noh “Arrow” Dong-hyeon started the majority of the split and with him, promoting IMT Academy backs Joseph “Joey” Haslemann in place of starting support Mitchell “Destiny” Shaw.
Unfortunately for the Immortals, the different roster hasn’t changed the nature of the team’s recent losses. Time and time again, IMT gained early leads or at the very least stayed competitive throughout the early and mid game before dropping a win with late game errors. The loss to CLG, which was more or less the same, was the Immortals’ eighth straight loss.
After IMT’s elimination, much of the postseason picture for the 2022 LCS Spring Playoffs remains to be decided.
The only teams that have qualified so far are Cloud9, Team Liquid, and the defending LCS champion 100 Thieves — the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams in the standings, respectively — and the other six teams are still in. vying for the final three. post-season places. However, if TSM loses their next game against 100 Thieves, they will join Immortals in the LCS Spring Playoffs mathematical elimination.
With TSM now in sole possession of ninth place following the loss to IMT, CLG is now 6-10 and closer to catching the two-way tie for sixth place between the 7-9 Dignitas QNTMPAY and the Golden Guardians. After their win over FlyQuest today, Evil Geniuses tied FLY for 4th place with a shared 8-8 record with two games left in the LCS Spring Split.
