With a convincing victory over Team Flash on the previous day of May 7, Burst The Sky Esports is wide open to relegation at VCS Summer 2022 when their last opponent is only 1 Genius Esports from B division. However, a surprise happened when GE completely defeated SKY to become the last team to participate in the upcoming VCS Summer 2022 after the Promotion round.
SKY made TF officially relegated on May 7th
To be clear, GE did not appear to be superior to the representative from VCS. The position of the 2 teams in all 3 games is almost equal. However, in a day of competition where Gloryy couldn’t show 100% of his performance, Draktharr alone was not enough to undo the whole match for SKY. It is no longer possible to recognize the appearance of the team that once entered the top 4 in VCS Winter 2021. The players of SKY all competed very sporadically in important teamfights and then lost the whole match.

With the victory over SKY, GE will have the first time participating in the highest League of Legends tournament in Vietnam. With both teams from VCS losing against the lower ranked teams, this could also be a sign that the level of VCS B teams is shrinking with the teams above. However, it is undeniable that neither SKY nor TF have been in good form in the last Spring of 2022. Especially TF when even with the return of Slayder, this team still did not show prosperity.
Both SKY and TF have “bounced” despite being rated higher in the Promotion round
The VCS community was also quite surprised when both TF and SKY teams lost to the lower ranked teams. This could not have been predicted. Because, TF has Slayder and Yoshino who are seasoned players. Meanwhile, SKY has just entered the top 4 in Winter 2021 as well as caused some surprises in the SEA Games 31 qualifiers for League of Legends. But as a result, these two teams have failed and in the near future, they will certainly face a lot of personnel changes.

Welcome GE and ASE to VCS Summer 2022
The community denigrates SKY after the defeat against GE
Thus, 8 names that will participate in the 2022 Summer VCS have been determined. And in the near future, GE and AS Esports will have to prepare carefully. Because their upcoming opponents will be extremely quality names and for sure, the 2022 Summer VCS will be extremely harsh, much better than the VCS B tournament or the qualifiers they just went through.
