Before NA’s 2017 Spring Split started it seemed like this could be the most even spread of talent in North America ever. What is surprising, however, is that by week eight we are left we are left with seven teams vying for four playoff spots. Outside of the top two positions in NA, everything else is up for grabs.
What that means for week eights matches is that almost all of them are going to have some kind of big playoff implication. Perhaps the most interesting of these is going to be the newly Doublelift-led Team Liquid going up against current third place, Phoenix1, on Saturday.
All games will be watchable on the Lolesports website, as well as on twitch at the NA LCS 1 and NA LCS 2 channels.
