Earlier today was the grand finals of NA LCS Summer split 2018 between Team Liquid and Cloud9 for the final title and a spot in the worlds 2018.
Team Liquid rolled into Oakland’s Oracle Arena as heavy favorites in the 2018 NA LCS Summer Split final. They were the defending champions after all, and none of the playoff series they’ve played this year have been particularly close. When Liquid focus and play as a team, they’re hard to stop.
Their opponents were a new-look Cloud9 team that made the final using an unconventional seven-man squad. But against Liquid, no combination of Cloud9 players could make a dent as Liquid easily won the series in just three games.

For the second straight split, Team Liquid are the NA LCS Champions. Team owner Steve Arhancet made a big move in assembling the veteran—and expensive—roster, and it paid off in spades. Liquid is officially through to Worlds as the region’s top seed.
Because of Championship Points, 100 Thieves will join Liquid at Worlds as NA’s second seed. Now Cloud9 will have to duke it out with Clutch Gaming, Echo Fox, and TSM for the third and final seed at Worlds.
