League of Legends’ LCS Spring Split is over, and six teams are set for the playoffs. The Regular Split concluded over the weekend with Echo Fox earning the final spot on the last day of the regular games, followed by FlyQuest winning a tiebreaker against Golden Guardians (aka GG) for the fourth seed in the best-of-six tournament.

The North American region’s playoffs will now move to a single-elimination tournament, with each match played as a Best of Five series. The quarterfinals will see Echo Fox take on Team SoloMid (TSM), while FlyQuest and GG rematch their tiebreaker bout. They will go on to face the #1 and #2 seeds, respectively, in the formidable Team Liquid and Cloud9. The finals will see the top to teams battle it out for supremacy, the LCS trophy and a $100,000 prize. The runner-up gets $50,000, with $25,000 going to the third and fourth-place teams.

The stakes are higher than just money and a trophy, though. The winners of the playoffs also punch their ticket to the 2019 Mid-Season Invitational Main Event in Vietnam, where they will face off against the winners from twelve other regions in the world-level tournament.

You can watch the LCS Spring Split 2019 Playoffs from March 30th through April 13th at Riot Games’ Twitch channel.
