2022 LPL Summer Split Playoffs: Schedule
With 10 teams qualifying for the playoffs, there will be two parallel brackets of both double and single-elimination formats. The bracket will begin with two single-elimination brackets, eventually converging into one double-elimination bracket.
Four teams will be eliminated before the playoffs bracket reaches the double elimination phase. Teams ranked from five to 10 on the LPL points table will begin the playoffs in a single-elimination “king of the hill” format. When only the top six teams remain, the double-elimination phase will begin.
The teams that lose from here on will go to the Losers’ Bracket, gaining another chance to advance. Here is a detailed roadmap of the 2022 LPL Summer Split Playoffs.
