The spring playoffs of the LCS 2019 will conclude on Saturday, April 13. Team Liquid, who conquered the last two domestic campaigns will face TSM. The TSM side will arrive in the grand finals as a force to be reckoned with since they won the semifinals with a dominant 2-0 result. In fact, there will also be a fight for bragging rights in the North American final.
Both Doublelift, AD Carry of Team Liquid and Bjergsen, midlaner of TSM have won 5 LCS titles each. In fact, both lifted two trophies together under the TSM shirt. The first title was secured in Summer 2016, while the 2nd one was acquired a year later just before the Worlds.
We came in with some doubts, but our ticket to finals is punched with a 3-0

More Than A Final
Team Liquid could match TSM by winning three consecutive domestic titles. The final of the LCS is going to be something more than the fight for a title. Team Liquid could equal TSM’s record as the only team to win three consecutive domestic leagues. An incredible feat that has not happened since the summer of 2016. At that time, Bjergsen and company dominated the American scene. Even the fans of their rivals shouted “TSM! TSM!” as they reigned supreme in the LCS.
In 2018, Team Liquid dominated the NA LCS after winning the spring and summer split. Once again, the American Superteam returns to the final after comprehensively beating FlyQuest in the semifinals (3-0). This time they will face TSM, who will be quite determined to succeed, since the last time they lifted the title was in 2017.

Cloud9 was completely outplayed by TSM as they lost 2-0 with no fight. The club with the most titles in North America once again proved that it can make its mark in the most difficult moments of the season. After being questioned by the critics for their unpredictable strategies, TSM returns to fight for titles in the best of 5 series.
Bjergsen and Doublelift: 10 LCS titles
When we put Bjergsen and Doublelift in the spotlight, it is quite synonymous to discussing the history of the LCS. The Danish, who arrived at the ranks of TSM back in 2013, has become the franchise player of the Reginald club. What’s more, Bjergsen has a total of 5 domestic titles, same as Doublelift.
The American legend has disputed in some of the great teams in the region. Now, in Team Liquid he will be aiming to lift the sixth title of his career and third consecutive with his current club. Bjergsen and Doublelift will fight in one of the most promising finals in the history of NA LCS.
Nonetheless, there are other names to highlight in the final. If TSM wins, Zven will be the first player to lift a NA as well as an EU title. In addition, Xmithie would equal Bjergsen’s record of 5 titles if Team Liquid wins the final. Therefore, next Saturday will not live a normal series, but a historical meeting that will determine the king of North America.
