Team Liquid's League of Legends team could miss playoffs after they fell to Evil Geniuses in Week 8 of the 2020 LCS Spring Split.

Team Liquid, the defending champs, have been through it. They dealt with visa issues, motivation issues, and two substitutes. There were hopes that maybe things would turn around for Team Liquid but, that never happened. They looked lost on Saturday and struggled to get anything going against Evil Geniuses, who played lights out.

Following this loss, Liquid now has to win three straight games to make it to playoffs, including one against Cloud9, a match many people expect Liquid to lose. If they aren't able to complete the three win streak, they will be the first returning champions in LCS history to miss the postseason. Although EG pulled off the upset, Liquid fans shouldn't give up hope yet. While a three-game win streak may be tricky, it isn't impossible.

On a more positive note, Liquid fans can rejoice over Doublelift's record-breaking season. He became the first player in LCS history to reach 1,500 regular season kills in their career. This impressive feat was earned Saturday against EG.
