100 Thieves outlast Evil Geniuses to book Worlds spot

It went to all five games, but 100T eventually outclassed EG in an LCS classic.

Danny had one of the best ADC performances you’ll ever see in game four to drag EG to a decider – but was put on Ziggs duty in a controversial decision in game five.

A banger series

When Closer’s Viego popped off in game one, and he was allowed to get it again in game two, it looked like it might be a short series – but Danny and Jiizuke teamed up to carry the final teamfight, and EG were back in it.

Game three was a stomp for 100T, as the Jayce pick from Impact that looked rough in game two continued to be a problem, despite an early kill. Contractz and Jiizuke looked awful, and Abbedagge and Closer will punish even the smallest errors. 

As mentioned above, EG had Danny to thank for game four – his unofficial penta was an insane pop-off, and dragged Contractz through a miserable performance. It was all set up for a massive game five.

Contractz was out, and Svenskeren was in – but the big moment didn’t happen for the Dane. His lanes ran it down, and despite him picking up three kills in the early-mid game, nobody else picked up a kill on his team for a while. 100T were too strong – Closer and Abbedagge were unstoppable, and they converted their massive lead into a win.

100 Thieves will be at Worlds!
