Royal Never Give Up’s unexpected 1-2 loss to LGD Gaming made the situation in the playoffs bracket more unpredictable.
Before the final match day of the 2022 Summer LPL group stage, the fan community clearly saw the situation of the playoffs in the playoffs with the presence of 10 teams. After the procedural match between Ultra Prime and Team WE ended, most fans thought that the match between RNG and LGD was similar, but the result surprised many people and brought a big change.
The defending champion MSI 2022 easily defeated LGD destructively in game 1. But before the unexpected choices from this opponent, “Royal Legion” lost in turn in the remaining 2 games. This result caused RNG to lose second place to JD Gaming, and at the same time fell to 4th place on the rankings.
This means that RNG has to play in the playoffs since round 3, instead of being available in round 4 with the top team TOP Esports. At the same time, the brackets of RNG, JDG, and V5 were all changed in turn.
V5 will be in the same bracket as LNG Esports, Bilibili Gaming and Weibo Gaming. Among these, the team of SofM and TheShy is really a big challenge and is considered the best match of V5. Since last season until now, no matter how high the performance, V5 has not won the WBG. Therefore, if WBG wins in round 2, the BO5 match between these two teams will be very remarkable.

Meanwhile, the disastrous loss of RNG made this team much more difficult. Not only do they have to play one more round in the playoffs, this team is also at risk of encountering EDward Gaming or TOP Esports, which are brave teams in BO5 pairs.
Teams in the LPL will not have a break when the playoffs officially take place from August 16. The teams will compete in turn for 2 weeks to find the two best teams entering the Finals, scheduled to take place on September 1.
