Who will make it through at this year's LPL 2021 Summer Split
The LPL 2021 Summer Split starts later today!
Get ready as the LPL 2021 Summer Split in China is just around the corner and we are going to take a look at all the details surrounding this two-month-long regional tournament. It also introduces the top 17 teams from all around China to battle it out for just four invites to Worlds 2021. This is all thanks to Royal Never Give Up , who took the win at MSI 2021 after a thrilling best-of-five series.
As Royal Never Give Up did dominate in both their respective Spring split as well as on the international stage, there are other teams in China who are looking to make a break into the top-four spot and trying to dethrone RNG in the process.

The games start later today, June 7 with two best-of-three series going on every day until August 8, which is when we will find out who makes it into the top 10 for the playoffs. Much like the previous season, the top two teams will book their slots in the semi-finals while third and fourth place will get you a slot in the last round of the playoffs. This is followed by the fifth and sixth place getting sent to the second round of the playoffs, rounding it off from seventh to tenth fighting it out in the first round of the playoffs. To tie it all together, every series will be a best-of-five.
Once the top four teams have been confirmed, they will then face off in a double-elimination bracket, giving every team a chance to fight for their tournament lives. It's also worth noting that this time, there is no mid-split break like in previous editions so this gives teams a more jam-packed schedule.
In the spring split, Royal Never Give Up was joined by EDward Gaming , Top Esports , and JD Gaming in the playoff bracket so don't be surprised to see these guys fight for those spots once again this coming summer.
