Here are the 6 teams that will advance into the 2022 LCK Summer Split Playoffs – The Group Stage matches of the 2022 LCK Summer Split are set to end on Aug. 14. But the 6 teams that will advance to the playoffs have finally been confirmed. It was DRX who became the last team to qualify after they won over Kwangdong Freecs yesterday.
Let us take a look at the 6 teams that have advanced to the playoffs of this year’s LCK Summer tournament.
Gen.G had a nice group stage run this Summer Split. They have been only defeated once by T1 till now. Their team is also in top form. Legends and Ruler have continued to dominate the bottom lane. Peanut has been one of the best junglers this season, while Doran and Chovy also have stepped up on multiple occasions. Advancing directly into the semi-finals, Gen.G can be considered the favorite to win this tournament.

While they do not have the undefeated streak of the LCK Spring event, they are still a force to be reckoned with. We have seen a lot of impressive gameplay by Faker, Zeus, and Gumayusi in the 2022 LCK Summer. Oner and Keria also provide crucial support in team fights. Advancing directly into the semi-finals, their winning chances are also close to that of Gen.G.

Being second-last in the Spring Split event earlier this year, SANDBOX’s current third place at the Summer Split has surprised everyone. They have performed well against almost every team in the LCK thanks to Prince’s performance. But T1 and Gen.G seem to be the kryptonite for SANDBOX. They need to work on their strategies if they wish to overcome these goliaths and have a chance at winning this year’s Summer Split.

- DWG KIA
DWG KIA had a bumpy ride in the 2022 LCK Summer Split. They had a tough time winning their matches, especially against teams ranked high on the points table. The 2020 Worlds Champion needs to work a lot if they want to have a chance at winning the Summer Split. It will be a steep slope for them at the playoffs.
Like DWG KIA, DRX also has a similar run this summer. With on-and-off performances from their players, the team has managed to qualify for the playoffs, but the battle will be uphill from here. The individual performances of the players are quite good but they need to smoothen out their teamwork for better match results.
Our summer is not over yet.🏖️
We are going to the 2022 LCK Summer Playoffs!

- KT Rolster
KT has also surprised fans by qualifying for the playoffs this summer. But a lot of the credit should be given to their star bottom laner Aiming for this. He has constantly stepped up to help his team cross the finish line. While his teammates also have had brilliant moments, they still need to up their gameplay in the playoffs stage. Only then will the team have a shot at winning the 2022 LCK Summer title.
