It was the final LCS weekend of the year. The three representatives for the region at this year's 2021 World Championship have also already been decided, the only thing we still had to find out was whether it would be C9, TL or 100T who would lift the LCS trophy.
The final Bo5s were held this weekend for the LCS. Saturday, C9 took on 100 Thieves to see who would play in the finals against Team Liquid for a chance to take home the LCS trophy.

100 Thieves Win LCS Title
The LCS finals took place yesterday between 100 Thieves, who managed a win over Cloud9 the day before, and Team Liquid.
Game 1 was a slaughter of TL, with Closer taking the wheel and decimating any hope TL had of winning that first match. His Viego was immaculate going 3/0/8 to show off his dominance in the jungle, impacting all lanes.

100 Thieves did not stop there though, taking charge of the next two games as well. No matter what Team Liquid tried, 100 Thieves had the answer and managed to shut out TL 3 - 0.
Closer played incredibly and led his team to their first LCS title and a berth in the 2021 World Championship group stage.
