The 2022 LCK Spring Finals garnered hype and attention from not just fans in Korea, but from those around the world as well. It was a series between two teams that are widely considered to be the best in the world, and the hype built up even more due to the two teams not playing with their full rosters [due to Gen.G players catching COVID on both regular split matches against T1]. For such two teams to fight for the LCK trophy on the finals stage was like a finale to an anime series.
From the cosplayers that gathered at the venue to showcase their cosplay, LCK legends that held fan signings on-site, to of course, the 3,500 fans that have somehow managed to beat the odds and get a ticket, the 2022 LCK Spring Finals was an event that esports fans have been robbed of for the last two and a half years.
