LCS Spring 2023 Playoffs: How to Watch, Bracket, Schedule

Riot Games

The LCS 2023 spring split had one of the most exciting finishes ever, as the top six teams for playoffs had to play three tiebreaker matches to determine playoff seeding. Heading into the final week, there were eight teams looking to reach top six and acquire themselves a playoff spot.

100 Thieves was sitting outside of the playoff picture a couple weeks ago due to their 5-8 record, but they went on a seven game win streak to finish 12-8 and attained third place. The Team Liquid super team with world champion Hong "Pyosik" Chang-hyeon and highly acclaimed top laner Park "Summit" Woo-tae failed to make playoffs with their subpar 8-10 record. Meanwhile, TSM was fighting for a playoff spot until the last day of the regular season.

Evil Geniuses and Golden Guardians were top four in the standings heading into the final few games of the regular season, but they dropped to fifth and sixth place after every game transpired. This means that both of these teams will be placed in the loser's bracket and will have to win four playoff series to become spring split champions.

With all this in mind, here is the bracket and schedule for the LCS spring split playoffs and how to watch all the games.
