Final 12 months, VCS couldn’t ship their consultant to MSI because of the journey restrictions attributable to the Covid-19 pandemic. Coincidence or not, the highest 4 groups in final 12 months’s Spring Playoffs are the identical ones from this 12 months, in the identical precise order. Nevertheless, GAM Esports couldn’t attend they usually weren’t given a web-based format as they did with the LPL this 12 months.
GAM dominated the Common Cut up, attaining an ideal cut up with 14-0 and solely dropping two sequence out of the 30 video games performed. They have been head and shoulders above everybody else and deserved to play on the first worldwide event, the Mid-Season Invitational, which might happen in Busan, South Korea.

The second staff from the VCS has carried out decently, with a 56% winrate over 45 video games in the course of the common cut up. With that being mentioned, the staff would possibly battle in Bo1, the place they would wish to carry out their greatest in any given match with the intention to advance to the subsequent stage.
SGB primarily depends on their ADC as the principle carry for the staff, taking greater than 28% of the entire injury output. Opposite to most gamers this season, SGB’s high has performed primarily carries, which can make issues very attention-grabbing in opposition to a number of the greatest high laners worldwide.
With one staff (LCL) already lacking, Riot Video games couldn’t afford to delete yet one more staff. SGB, having misplaced 3-1 within the finals to GAM Esports, will hope to make a robust exhibiting for the area, even when they may not be as sturdy as GAM.
