EU LCS 2018 Summer Split Finals viewing parties to run across Europe
Anyone who can’t make it to Madrid will still have a chance to watch the EU LCS 2018 Summer Split Finals with fellow LoL fans
Where has the time gone? With only a few weeks to go before the end of the 2018 Summer Split, teams are looking closer than ever at their playoffs chances and that all-important chance to be in the EU LCS Summer Split finals on their way to the World Championships.
When are the finals?
This year, the finals will take place on Sunday 9 September at the Palacio Vistalegre in Madrid. The third-place decider match will be held at the same venue but on Saturday 8 September. Both the third-place decider and the finals will be Bo5 matches.
Although Misfits were dominant during the start of the Summer Split and had all but guaranteed themselves a first-place finish during the regular season, the past few weeks of games have clearly rattled the team, and they now find themselves in joint first with Fnatic with 10 wins and four losses.
With other teams, such as FC Schalke 04, Team Vitality, and G2 Esports just behind them, with nine wins each to their name, it’ll be a close race for that first-place finish. This makes it extra hard to predict which two teams will take it all the way to Madrid.
Although we won’t know for some time which teams make the finals, and whether it will end up being a Fnatic and G2 Esports rematch after all, you can already book your place at the finals through Ticketmaster.
If you can’t make it to Madrid, then fear not, as viewing parties will once again be available to screen all the finals action.
Where are the viewing parties?
Viewing parties for the finals on September 9 will be held at several locations across Europe. To see if your local cinema is holding a viewing party, you can search on www.leagueoflegendsincinemas.com.
Viewing parties can be a great way to get together with fellow League of Legends fans and cheer on your favourite team to victory. It’s a great substitute if you can’t make it to Madrid but still want to share the experience with others.
There’s a lot to play for
In addition to the excitement of the finals, there’s a lot on the line for the winners of the EU LCS 2018 Summer Split, as the winning team will automatically get a place at the 2018 World Championships in Korea.
However, there’s also plenty on offer for the other top-finishing teams making progress to their Worlds goals. Second place will receive 90 points, while the third and fourth placed teams will receive 70 and 50 points, respectively.
