The 2022 LEC summer split regular season has finally come to a close, six of Europe’s best have qualified for the playoffs and will now make their march towards the 2022 League of Legends World Championship. It was heartbreak for some but elation for others, here is what went down in the LEC summer regular season.

Esports.gg will provide up-to-date information for the 2022 LEC Summer Split regular season schedule and post-season storylines.

In what was an eventful super week, the six playoff teams have been confirmed:

With only MAD Lions having their place in the postseason confirmed come super week, everything was to play for with eight teams in contention for a playoff spot. They may have left it late, but G2 Esports is still the best team in Europe. The spring split champions went on a five-game winning streak, including top-of-the-table MAD Lions, to snatch first place due to having a better record in the second half of the season.

Fnatic was ‘touch and go’ for the playoffs, the former world finalists had seen themselves fall out of the top six, putting their postseason in jeopardy. A crucial 3-0 against their rivals saw Fnatic leapfrog them into the top six. Monstrous performances from their bottom lane ensured Fnatic would continue their long stint of making the playoffs.

Rogue, XL Esports and Misfits Gaming round out the playoff contestants. Both XL and MSF took part in the final tiebreakers of the season. XL had to take down Vitality in order to make it, while MSF took down Fnatic in a rematch from earlier in the day which was for playoff seeding.

It was heartbreak for Team Vitality fans on Sunday as they saw their super team crash out of playoff contention. This failure means this will be the first time Luka “Perkz” Perković has missed the playoffs in his career after making it every single time on G2 Esports and Cloud9.

The plan was simple for Vitality, win just one out of three games and you qualify for the playoffs and have a chance at making worlds. The EU side was unable to do that, bombing out of contention with an 0-3 super week record followed up by a tiebreaker loss to XL to wrap up their LEC schedule. To put things into perspective, going into super week Vitality had a 94.6% chance of qualifying for the postseason.

This is the finals standings for the summer split regular season. As stated above, G2 Esports clinched first place after an impressive winning streak helped them snatch it away from MAD.

Here are the results and the schedule for the 2022 LEC summer split regular season.
