It was an explosive end to the LCS Summer 2020 playoffs, as TSM completed a miracle lower-bracket run with back-to-back five-game wins over Team Liquid and FlyQuest to claim the title.
In the lower bracket final, TSM had to fight back after being down 2-1 to Team Liquid but, thanks to a surprising Jungle Shen pick from Mingyi ‘Spica’ Lu, this pick would get the team ahead early in game 4 and also allow TSM’s ADC Yiliang ‘Doublelift’ Peng to carry the games on Senna. A pick he has received criticism for in the past.
The final looked like it was going to be all TSM when they took a quick 2-0 lead. But a brave rally from FlyQuest brought it back to 2-2 before Doublelift and Bjergsen dashed their hopes in game 5 with impressive performances. Confirming the team as LCS Summer champions.
