Spring Split is almost done. We are moving into the super week. The end of the regular split and onto the playoffs.  A few teams have already secured their spot in the playoffs, but there is a ton of unknown in both leagues still.

colors are used to illustrate the safety-danger zone, on our opinion, based on upcoming matchups.

Secured teams: G2 Esports & Rogue

Two best teams in the regular splits. G2 Esports have Rogue's number. Simple as that. Rogue seems and is a really good and solid team, but G2 Esports is their kryptonite.

Either way, both of these teams secured a spot in the playoffs. The only real question now is about their standings. It is still possible for Rogue to clench the #1 spot away. But unlikely considering how dominant G2 have been. But if we know one thing, G2 can surely throw away games when they don’t really matter.

Contenders: Fnatic, MAD Lions, SK Gaming, Schalke 04, Misfits Gaming, Excel, Team Vitality

Every remaining team basically has a realistic chance to get into the playoffs. Astralis is the only team that basically has no chance. Team Vitality, being 4-11 in the standings currently, can still make it if they beat every team on super week. The remaining teams they have to play are not the strongest in the league, but the same contenders, who will have to fight G2 and Rogue.

Fnatic and MAD Lions are almost guaranteed to make it to the playoffs. Only next to a complete disaster in their performance and horrible luck in other match outcomes would prevent them from making it.

SK Gaming found themselves in a very difficult spot opponent-wise. They will have to play G2-Esports, Rogue and Astralis. If no upsets happen and they go 1:2 winning against Astralis and losing to the two top teams in the league, they would be 9:9. Enough to get to playoffs but might be risky if Schalke 04 or Misfits go on a great run. Basically, two wins would guarantee SK a spot in the playoffs. One - can make it spicy.

Schalke 04, Misfits Gaming and Excel

These are the true wild horses going into the last weekend. They can break other team dreams and achieve their own. Everything is in their hands.

Excel chances are looking pretty grim though. Having to face G2 Esports and Rogue, it doesn’t seem likely they will advance.

Schalke 04 and Misfits are almost in the same spot. They will have to play Fnatic. Who might just as well act like gatekeepers for one of these teams.

Cloud9 are secure

They played really well, with a few hiccups over the split, but they seemed very good.

The only real issue they are having is Team Liquid. 0:2 in the regular split, might spoil their playoff standings. But only time will tell. For the regular split, they are on top at the moment. But seedings are not yet done. If the last weekend goes very bad for them, they might end up in 2 or 3rd place, quite easily.

Golden Guardians, Counter Logic Gaming and Flyquest are not secure

Golden Guardians has no chance, CLG has very little chance. Flyquest also has very little chance. This is the best summary I can give you.

GG has been struggling all split. CLG have been in 9-10th place of the league basically all split too. Flyquest is in 7th place. Now, they need a miracle. If they beat GG, 100 Thieves and Dignitas and go 3:0, they will still be 8:10 and will need a lot of help from other match results to make tiebreakers happen.

Immortals, Evil Geniuses, Team Liquid, 100 Thieves

Middle of the pack teams. All their fate is in their hands. One of these teams is not going to make it. Immortals need a 3:0 week. But they will have to play C9 and TSM. They will also have to play Immortals, that match might eventually be the most important of them all in the final standings. Evil Geniuses have their work cut out for them too. They will play TSM, TL and CLG. And they need two wins to make it to the playoffs. Beating TSM or TL will not be easy.

Team Liquid and 100 Thieves are in the same boat with 9-6 score. And to make it even spicier, they will play each other on Sunday. Both of these teams will likely make playoffs, but the match between them might be very important for the final standing.

Dignitas, Team SoloMid - these are safe. Even if they go 0:3, it is next to impossible for them to not make the playoffs.
