The playoff bracket of the League of Legends European Championship (LEC) Summer split is set after a close-fought season came down to the final day.

Coming into the last week of the split, there were still eight teams in contention for the six playoff spots, and on the final day every single match affected the final standings.

In the end, it came down to a tiebreaker between Vitality and SK Gaming for the final playoff spot, and it was Vitality that managed to emerge victorious.

They will move on to face Schalke 04 in the first round of the playoffs, who had a more comfortable run through the regular season. On the other side, Rogue will face Splyce.

Rogue had an impressive turn-around after a dead last finish in Spring to reach the Summer playoffs, while Splyce were in contention at the top of the standings for much of the Summer split, but couldn’t quite secure a direct advance into the second round with a top-two finish.

LEC Spring and MSI champions G2 Esports somewhat unsurprisingly secured the first seed. The team dropped a few games towards the end of the season with some unconventional drafting, but still enter the playoffs as the big favorite.

They’ll face Fnatic in the upper bracket round, with the winner advancing straight to the final, while the loser will drop down into the semi-finals to face whichever of the other four teams makes it through.

The LEC trophy isn’t the only thing on the line in the Summer playoffs, as championship points will also be given out that will help determine the World Championship qualifiers.

G2 Esports are already locked in for a place at Worlds, as their championship points from their Spring victory in combination with their minimum placement of third in the Summer playoffs will guarantee them the most points if they don’t secure the automatic place that comes with the Summer title.
