Misfits and Fnatic reach the EU LCS Spring 2017 playoffs as their sister teams make the LCS promos

They left it late, they left it great - but UK-based esports brand Fnatic have finally secured a playoff position in the Spring 2017 EU League of Legends Championship Series.

They turned around a 0-1 game one loss to Misfits today to win 2-1, and finish third in group A.

This means Misfits finish second in group A and also qualify. Roccat, meanwhile, miss out by a whisker - like Fnatic they also had six wins and seven losses, but Fnatic had a better game difference to them.

In group B, H2K and Splyce progress to the playoffs, while Vitality miss out on the playoffs in fourth place.

G2 and Unicorns of Love top the groups, with 12 wins and 11 wins respectively.

Giants and Origen finish last in their respective groups and fall into the LCS promotion series. There, they will be joined by Misfits' and Fnatic's lower-tier academy teams.

The first match in the playoffs takes place between Misfits and Splyce this Saturday; H2K will play Fnatic on the Sunday.

Finally, the LCS promotion series will kick off this Thursday (April 6th 2017) at 5pm CET, casted by UK casters Vedius and Medic.

Giants, Origen, Misfits academy and Fnatic academy will take part in the promo series.

Those who win twice will progress to the summer LCS, while the two losers will fall into the summer Challenger Series.

If Fnatic or Misfits' academy teams win, then they will need to sell their spots to another owner before the next LCS split.

If they fall into the Challenger Series, they also will not be able to compete. This could mean that Fnatic's academy team would have to play in a regional league instead - Fnatic playing in the ESL UK & Ireland Premiership remains a possibility.
