After a back and forth season in Korea, six teams have been locked in for the 2021 LCK Summer Split playoffs. 

Reigning champs DWG KIA qualified for the 2021 League of Legends World Championship off the back of championship points, but three more slots are still to be decided.

The winner of the LCK Summer Split playoffs, which takes place from Aug. 18 to 28, will automatically qualify as the first seed for Worlds. The team that finishes with the most championship points (that hasn’t already qualified) will qualify as the second seed. 

The third and fourth seeds (up from three at Worlds 2020 due to the LCK’s top-two finish at MSI 2021), will be decided at the Regional Finals, a separate single-elimination bracket that’s due to take place from Aug. 31 to Sept. 2.
