After six weeks of intense competition, the LCS is wrapping up the Spring season with the Mid-Season Showdown.
Replacing the usual Spring post-season, MSS will be the first LCS championship title of 2021 with a spot to the Mid-Season Invitational on the line for the winner.
While regular-season records will persist across Spring and Summer, the Mid-Season Showdown will feature six squads with the best records to date in a double-elimination tournament bracket.
The top four seeds will fight it out in the upper bracket this weekend while the last two seeds are slotted in the lower bracket, facing the losing teams from the upper bracket in the coming weeks.
Here is the schedule:
- A1 (March 20): TSM vs. Team Liquid
- A2 (March 21): Cloud9 vs. 100 Thieves
- X1 (March 27): Evil Geniuses vs. A2 Loser
- X2 (March 28): Dignitas vs. A1 Loser
- B1 Upper Bracket Finals (April 3): A1 Winner vs. A2 Winner
- Y1 Lower Bracket Semi-Finals (April 4): X1 Winner vs. X2 Winner
- Z1 Finals Qualifier (April 10): B1 Loser vs. Y1 Winner
- C1 Grand Finals (April 11): B1 Winner vs. Z1 Winner
The MSS Finals Qualifier and Grand Finals will take place at the iconic Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, California. For the health and safety of the players, staff, and local residents, the Finals event will not have a live audience.
