One day left. 

Eight weeks, fifteen matches, and it all comes down to this. So with only one day of play left in the regular season of the LCS Spring Split, let's break down who's made it into the playoffs, who's planning for the next split, and who still has a chance to make it. 

In the playoffs

Three teams have already locked up their spot in the Spring Split Playoffs and a potential championship match at the PNC Arena in Raleigh, North Carolina, this April. They're playing for positioning at this point, but their spot is safe. 

Cloud9 (14-3)

All season long, it's been a showdown between Cloud9 and FlyQuest. FlyQuest held the lead for most of the split, with C9 nipping at their heels. However, a Wednesday night showdown in week 8 saw C9 finally take the lead in the split. If they win tonight against CLG, they'll be guaranteed the number 1 seed in the playoffs.

FlyQuest (13-4)

Many people, including us, predicted FlyQuest would be something special this season. Though many expected, they would need more time to gel. Instead, they stormed out the gate and have been one of the most dominant teams in the league, all split. Their second half wasn't the powerhouse that the first half of the split was, but they've been dangerous all season. The worst they can do is second place in the regular season.

Evil Geniuses (10-7)

Evil Geniuses haven't been the unstoppable juggernaut that many thought they would be this split. But after a rocky start, they've righted the ship and have remained competitive. Slow and steady wins the race seems to be the creed of EG, and it's taken them to a 10-7 record with a secure playoff spot going into the final day of play.

Win, and you're in

Three teams sit tied with a 9-8 record. And all three would make the playoffs if they started today. But there's one game remaining, and TSM is on the bubble with the potential to catch a team that loses today. 

CLG, Golden Guardians, 100 Thieves (9-8)

That's right. Golden Guardians is currently in a playoff slot. 100 Thieves has battled back in a shaky season, and even CLG has managed to right the ship and get things settled down. The problem? TSM is sitting at an 8-9 record, meaning if they win and one of these teams loses, we have tiebreaker scenarios. 

TSM meets FlyQuest today, which is a tall order. They'll have to beat one of the best teams in the LCS to have a chance at making it into the playoffs. For FlyQuest, they're playing for pride and a chance to catch C9 for the best record. 

Golden Guardians probably has the most safety in all of this, as they meet 2-15 Dignitas. 100 Thieves also has a game with Immortals that they should feel good about their chances in. CLG draws the unlucky number 9, Cloud9, that is. To secure their spot, they'll need to beat the LCS leaders in the first game of the night. If they fail to do so, they'll be hoping for FlyQuest to beat TSM.
