The 2022 LCS Summer split will feature best-of-one games that will pit the 10 teams in the league against each other in a double round-robin. This means that each team will play a total of 18 games.

These 18 games will be played over the course of an eight-week season. On certain weeks, teams will play three games. However, teams will only play twice a majority of the weeks. After the end of the regular season, the top eight teams will qualify for playoffs.


The 10 teams playing in the 2022 LCS summer split is the exact same as the teams that played in the previous five splits as the LCS is a franchised league. Here are the 10 teams competing in the order of their placement from the 2022 LCS spring split.

  • Evil Geniuses
  • 100 Thieves
  • Team Liquid
  • Cloud 9
  • FlyQuest
  • Golden Guardians
  • Dignitas QNTMPAY
  • Counter Logic Gaming
  • TSM
  • Immortals

Some of these teams made updates to their roster after the 2022 LCS spring split. C9 let go of their MVP top laner Park “Summit” Woo-tae while pushing their mid laner, Ibrahim “Fudge” Allami, back to the top lane. They also signed Nicolaj “Jensen” Jensen to fill the gap in the mid lane. Jensen last played for C9 during the 2018 LCS summer split.

TSM brought in Huang “Maple” Yi-Tang from the League of Legends Pro League to be their new mid laner and CLG promoted their NA Academy MVP Niship “Dhokla” Doshi to be their new starting top laner. Outside of those moves, many of the other teams decided to run it back with their spring rosters.
