EG vs TSM LCS Summer Split 2022 Playoffs

EG continues their LCS Summer Playoffs journey with a 3-2 win, while TSM is eliminated from both Worlds and championship contention.

Game 2 of the series had multiple pauses due to audio issues. The LCS team tried to solve the audio problems during the break between games, which caused nearly a 2-hour delay between Games 2 and 3. Eventually, it was determined the problem could not be solved, but both teams still agreed to play it out under the current circumstances.

EG vs TSM – Game 1 (0-1)

TSM came into the series starting with Tactical in the ADC position after they saw success subbing him in against FlyQuest.

Game 1 was really slow to start, with teams trading only one kill each in the first 14 minutes. All early objectives went EG’s way, but TSM had a 1k gold lead due to their better laning which they grew to over 3k after finding multiple kills and the first tower after a fight at the second drake, and they also had the scaling advantage. Despite TSM's lead staying the same during the mid game, EG was not contesting any objectives so they let their opponents even the drake count. There was a shaky moment when Tactical got caught and EG managed to secure a Baron from it, but TSM made a good job of getting exit kills and removing the buffs, even though the gold was gone.

EG was winning fights most of the time, even managed to tie the drakes at 3-3. But they then tried to go for another Baron, but Spica saved it with a clutch steal. TSM also finally claimed the Hextech Soul and got themselves another Baron. But EG kept finding pick after pick and did not let TSM get near their base. At least they didn’t until Danny got caught in the mid lane by Tactical, which meant TSM could push for the end to start the work for their series upset.

  • Teams: EG – TSM
  • Time: 46:18
  • Kills: 18 – 15
  • Turrets: 4 – 10
  • Gold: 78.7k – 83.5k
  • Dragons: 3 – 4
  • Barons: 1 – 2

EG vs TSM – Game 2 (1-1)

Another slow game with EG getting most of the early objectives, but this time they at least were able to turn those objectives into an early 1k gold lead. EG moved much better across the map compared to Game 1. TSM had some chances in the 5v5s as EG did not have an ADC, but Seraphine’s heals and shields were still hard to get through, which gave EG the Soul point advantage with near 5k gold lead. EG also secured a Baron for themselves after a good turn at the objective, but lost most of their buffs after a bad fight they picked in the mid lane two minutes before the Soul point. The Soul fight itself went much better for the favorites as they managed to kill off Tactical early and secured the Hextech Soul.

There were a string of pauses, some going over 10 minutes, at this point which seemed like it halted the momentum for both teams. We came from the final pause to a TSM Baron attempt, which EG contested. Inspired found his way back to the TSM’s back line and managed to kill Tactical, which won them the fight and gave EG the chance to tie the series.

  • Teams: EG – TSM
  • Time: 36:22
  • Kills: 20 – 12
  • Turrets: 9 – 3
  • Gold: 68.3k – 58.4k
  • Dragons: 4 – 1
  • Barons: 1 – 0

EG vs TSM – Game 3 (2-1)

Game 3 had a disastrous start for TSM as they gave up first blood in a top side dive and botched a bot side dive themselves, trading one kill for four. EG also got the first drake and even though TSM answered by getting the Herald, EG still had a 1.5k gold lead. The mid game was pretty hectic with both teams looking for picks in the side lanes. EG came out ahead in most of these trades, as they got the Cloud Soul without TSM contesting the final drake. EG then set up for a Baron turn, which they successfully did. After chasing TSM to their tier-two bot lane tower, they got four kills and a Baron. At this point, the gold lead jumped to over 7.5k, and with Elder now on the map, it looked bleak for TSM. But as it turned out, EG did not need the Elder to end the game, as they took a 2-1 series lead after getting another four kills at the objective.

  • Teams: TSM – EG
  • Time: 33:54
  • Kills: 4 – 19
  • Turrets: 2 – 7
  • Gold: 52.1k – 63.1k
  • Dragons: 0 – 4
  • Barons: 0 – 1

EG vs TSM – Game 4 (2-2)

Game 4 was the exact mirror of the previous one. This time around, it was TSM who dove top for the first blood and then got extra kills thanks to a failed dive from their opponents. It went worse for EG after they opted into a 5v4 for the first Herald, but Spica managed to steal the objective, on top of getting a triple kill. With the early lead for Spica, TSM was able to snowball the game by getting objectives and towers. Even though EG found some victories and delayed the Soul point, TSM’s team fighting was superior. After a good pick on Danny, TSM secured a Baron and started sieging. EG decided to engage one last time but their damage was lacking. With Maple picking up a quadra kill, TSM ended the game and sent us to Game 5 for a chance for the upset.

  • Teams: EG – TSM
  • Time: 28:54
  • Kills: 5 – 19
  • Turrets: 1 – 9
  • Gold: 44.5k – 57.2k
  • Dragons: 1 – 3
  • Barons: 0 – 1

EG vs TSM – Game 5 (3-2)

Backs against the wall, EG decided to stuck with the Seraphine bot lane pick once again. Both teams were playing much more of a reserved early game without any early action. They traded the first objectives, but EG getting the Herald meant the first tower with plates and it turned into a 1.5k gold lead. In 27 minutes, there were only two kills in the game, both for EG. Even though TSM seemed to be content with the state of the game, they were falling behind when it came to drakes. But they found a good opportunity after they killed Impact after a bad TP. They started the Baron and got two more kills when EG contested, then they secured the objective and gave themselves a 3k gold lead.

Minutes before the Soul point spawns there was a great back and forth where EG blew multiple summoners of their opponents. They then got a kill on Spica which gave them a free Soul, but they went for the Baron instead. TSM was going to trade for the drake, but Jojopyun found a massive steal on it. With the Soul and the Baron, EG laid siege to the bot lane which lasted a couple of minutes. After finding two kills after TSM engaged on them, they found the opportunity to close out the game and the series.

  • Teams: EG – TSM
  • Time: 42:26
  • Kills: 9 – 3
  • Turrets: 7 – 5
  • Gold: 70.9k – 66.2k
  • Dragons: 4 – 2
  • Barons: 1 – 1
