As we reported last week, Team Liquid's poor form in the NA Championship Series this season saw them and last place Team EnVyUs relegated from the division into the promotion tournament, however, there's good news for both, as they managed to secure their place in the NA LCS for the summer split.
Team Liquid defeated both Gold Coin United and eUnited, who had great seasons in the Challenger Series, to get back into the LCS, however, their match against the former was anything but smooth, as they were pushed to a tense 3-2 victory.
As if that wasn't enough heartache for Gold Coin United, they they faced defeat to Team EnVyUs too, and to make matters worse, Gold Coin United won the first match against EnVyUs, before losing the second match where it mattered more.
Both eUnited and Gold Coin United drop back down into the Challenger Series for summer, then, to try again for promotion in a few months. Did you expect Team Liquid and Team EnVyUs to retain their places?
