The LCK Spring 2022 Playoffs begin on March 23, with six out of 10 teams qualifying after the regular split ended on March 20.
The race to secure the fifth and sixth playoffs seeds was decided on the regular season’s last day, where Kwangdong Freecs won a tiebreaker against Fredit BRION to qualify in fifth place.
DWG KIA and DRX round out the qualified teams as third and fourth seeds respectively.
Here’s everything you need to know about the playoffs, including the complete schedule, teams, results, and where to watch the matches live.
What is the LCK Spring 2022 Playoffs?
The LCK Spring 2022 Playoffs will be held to determine the season champions, who will also automatically qualify for the Mid-Season Invitational 2022.
The single-elimination bracket is determined based on the teams’ placements during the split:
- Top two teams seeded in the semifinals in Round 2
- Third to sixth seeds begin in Round 1
During Round 1, the third seed plays against the sixth seed, while the fourth seed will play against the fifth seed.
After Round 1, the first seed (T1) selects their semifinal opponent from the two Round 1 winners.
This will culminate in a grand final that will be held at KINTEX, the venue of the first-ever OGN Champions final in 2012.
All playoff matches will be best-of-five games.
