League of Legends PCS Summer Split Week 7 results

The final week of the League of Legends Pacific Championship Series (PCS) 2020 Summer Split Regular Season delivered both thrills and heartbreak across the three days of competition, including the nerve-wrecking tiebreaker on Sunday.

The final week of the League of Legends Pacific Championship Series (PCS) 2020 Summer Split Regular Season delivered both thrills and heartbreak across the three days of competition, including the nerve-wrecking tiebreaker on Sunday.

At the start of the week, plenty of excitement grew around the possibility of an unprecedented, four-way tie among the top four teams: Taipei J team (JT), ahq eSports club (AHQ), PSG Talon (PSG), and Machi Esports (MCX). The stars seem to align as all four teams secured the necessary wins over the weekend, though it all came down to the crucial match between JT and MCX.

A win for MCX against JT would have guaranteed the four-way tie, while JT could have ended the Regular Season in first place with a win against the runner-up of the League of Legends PCS Spring Split. Fully aware of the risk posed by the four-way tie, JT was relentless in this match. They were able to secure Cloud Soul under 24 minutes and decimated MCX despite Mission having his pocket pick Azir, ending the match with 0 kills and 6 deaths. The first-place finish of JT is a vast improvement for a team that barely made it into the playoffs in Spring. This performance was their greatest show of intent to qualify for Worlds 2020.
