We’re getting closer and closer towards Worlds, which means it’s time for playoffs in League regions around the world. But this week? This week is getting awful close to “SO MUCH LEAGUE I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH MYSELF.”
It all starts tonight (tonight!) when historical LMS powerhouses Flash Wolves and ahq e-Sports Club clash in the semifinals. Usually this is the LMS finals match-up, but newcomers J Team (owned by Taiwanese musician/actor Jay Chou) secured the No. 1 seed and a trip to the finals.
Also on this weekend: the LCS semifinals in Europe and North America, the LCK finals in Korea, the LMS finals and the final in Latin America North for the last spot at the International Wild Card Invitational.
The can’t-miss matches in our opinion are the LCK Finals, LMS finals and both NA LCS semis, but do your best to watch ‘em all. We promise we won’t tell if you can’t make it.
