For the second year running, the LPL earned an additional slot at the League of Legends World Championship after Royal Never Give Up knocked out DWG KIA in the finals of MSI.

With four slots at Worlds on the line, the 2021 LPL Summer Split playoffs could be more ruthless than ever.

From Aug. 12 to Sept. 2, the top 10 teams from the LPL regular season will be eager to contend for a spot at the game’s most prestigious event of the year and represent their country in Europe later this year.

In a series of best-of-five matchups, the playoffs will be split into two phases. The first phase will comprise of two King of Hill single eliminations brackets with seeds 4/5/8/9 facing off in one and seeds 3/6/7/10 in the other. 

The winners will advance to the second phase of the playoffs where they’ll compete in a double-elimination bracket for a place in the grand finals.


With their win over Team WE on Friday, Aug. 27, FunPlux Phoenix clinched a spot in the Worlds 2021 group stage as, at minimum, the LPL’s second seed. EDG also secured a spot in groups at the end-of-year event after beating WE on Sunday.
