All week long leading up to the LCS Finals next weekend, Riot Games will be hosting various online events to comprise a Virtual Tailgate for the 2020 Spring Split Finals featuring streamers, cosplays, art, and more. Each day will bring a different type of content, all of it located on the LCS Twitch channel, found here


Monday will consist of three separate art streams, featuring @Yangyexin, @kyrin21, and Riot DrPh8, all of which are concept artists. Riot DrPh8 was also the skin designer for Illaoi during the player vote campaign that allowed players to choose her next skin.  Tuesday features various cosplayers @KinpatsuCosplay, @emiru, and @JohnnyJunkers


Wednesday and Thursday feature members from the Riot broadcast team. Ovilee will be hosting a streamer 1v1 tournament Wednesday, though no specific streamers have been announced yet. (Tyler1? Yes? No? Probably!)


Then Thursday, Joshua "Jatt" Leesman will host his podcast JLXP live. His title this week is "Chronobreak" which, he explains, means he will take a look back through the regular season at Cloud9's close games (and maybe how a team should hope to take them down) and then preview some of the Finals.

There's a ton of content all week long, and with the LEC as well, plus all the VALORANT streams we're all watching. Despite the let down of not being in Texas for the big event, there's more than enough to keep us all busy in these isolation times. Let us know which you're most excited about, and let us know who you think will qualify to the Grand Finals alongside Cloud9 and if either team has a chance to break them.
