LCK Summer 2022 Playoffs Bracket and Format
The LCK Summer 2022 Playoffs is a single elimination bracket with six teams. All matches played are best-of-fives. The winner guarantees a slot in the upcoming World Championship 2022. The remaining three slots will be taken up by one LCK team that will qualify through Championship Points, and two teams that have to go through the regional finals.
LCK is the only one out of the four major regions (China’s LPL, NA’s LCS, EU’s LEC) to feature a single elimination bracket.
The top two seeds, Gen.G and T1, both begin in the Semi-Finals. As the first seed, Gen.G can choose which of the Quarterfinals winners they will face. T1 will go against the remaining team.
LSB vs DRX is the first match in the quarterfinals, followed by DK vs KT.
