Only three weeks are left before the LCS 2023 Spring Split regular season concludes as all 10 (maybe not all) LCS teams are hunting for a spot in playoffs. Last week, we saw several marquee matchups as Dignitas got their first win, Evil Geniuses collapsed, and FlyQuest continued their reign of terror on the LCS.

As teams enter the 6th week of LCS Spring Split play, several different teams have their own set of expectations and standards they are looking to achieve this week. Here are the storylines you must follow in the LCS 2023 Spring Split week 6.

Is the Dignitas miracle run coming soon?

Dignitas LCS first win of 2023

Dignitas are currently 1-10 in the LCS 2023 Spring Split.

Dignitas finally won a game this past weekend against Evil Geniuses. Now the question is how much more this team can do in their remaining seven games.

In truth, Dignitas is pretty much locked out of being able to qualify for the LCS 2023 Spring Split. However, this team has a legitimate opportunity to leapfrog out of 10th place and end the season looking vital for summer. New Dignitas AD Carry Frank “Tomo” Lam is a significant improvement over the initial starting LCS AD carry Spawn. In just two games, Tomo’s 11 kills have already eclipsed Trevor "Spawn" Kerr-Taylor's six kills in nine games. Additionally, the early laning phase for the new AD carry is a marked improvement.

Spawn averaged -9.9 CS down at 10 minutes, whereas Tomo averaged 2.0 CS up at the same marker. While Tomo isn’t the superstar AD Carry that will turn Dignitas into the next Golden Guardians, he is a suitable upgrade that will not be a liability moving forward. Expect Dignitas to go 1-1 this week with a realistic shot at beating Cloud9 as Nicolaj “Jensen” Jensen looks for revenge against his former team.

Can Golden Guardians extend to nine?

Golden Guardians are currently on a seven-game winning streak.

Golden Guardians are the hottest team in the LCS right now. After an 0-4 start to the season, the Golden Guardians have been living their best life in this new iteration of the Golden Age.

Now, they are in a prime position to extend their winning streak to nine games in a row as they match up against Team Liquid and Immortals this week. Golden Guardians have already cemented themselves as the biggest surprise in the LCS in 2023. The question is how much further can this team of plucky underdogs continue their hot streak?

All eyes on Cloud9 EMENES

C9 EMENES LCS 2023 Spring Split Cloud9

EMENES went 1-1 last week in his debut in the LCS 2023 Spring Split.

Last week, LCS viewers saw what new LCS midlaner EMENES could do on the LCS stage. In short, it was pretty impressive. While the team went 1-1 in week five with EMENES, their second game against TSM was a shining moment for the new Cloud9 midlaner.

With an entire week of LCS under his belt, this week will be an opportunity for EMENES to really shine as the team takes on 100 Thieves and Dignitas. Both teams recently broke loss streaks in week five and are now looking at their respective matches against Cloud9 as an opportunity to prove how good they are.

Evil Geniuses looking to bounce back after tough week

Evil Geniuses dropped to 7-4 after a disappointing week 5 showing.

Evil Geniuses dropped to 7-4 after a disappointing week 5 showing.

Going into week five, I wrote that Evil Geniuses were the primary frontrunner challenging FlyQuest for that number one seed in the LCS 2023 Spring Split. That narrative quickly got torn apart soon after as Evil Geniuses looked out of touch with their previous dominance seen in earlier weeks. Evil Geniuses began week five by handing Dignitas their first and only win of the LCS 2023 Spring Split. Then, they were manhandled by the Golden Guardians as the team dropped to 7-4, and lost their grip on second place.

That being said, there are some positive takeaways from the team. According to Evil Geniuses AD carry Ian Victor “FBI” Huang, the team had a week of “really good practice” where the games felt “easy.” While that did not necessarily transition onto the stage, this week should mark a return to form for the team. After experiencing a wake-up call, Evil Geniuses will look to hand FlyQuest their second loss of the LCS 2023 Spring Split.

FlyQuest’s biggest week could secure playoffs

FlyQuest have their intended starting lineup and are currently in 1st place with a 10-1 record.

Even though FlyQuest has a firm grasp of first place, this week will be their most important. If FlyQuest goes 2-0 this week, it would not only secure their spot in the LCS 2023 Spring Split playoffs, it would put them within striking distance of a top-two bye. Additionally

This week, FlyQuest will be up against Evil Geniuses and Counter Logic Gaming, two formidable opponents in the LCS. While Evil Geniuses enter this series after an 0-2 week, they are still one of the strongest teams in the LCS. The former LCS 2022 Spring Split champions should not be discounted. As for CLG, they have been on a mini hot streak themselves.

After their own four-game loss streak, the team has regained their footing in the past two weeks by going 4-1 in that stretch. Both teams are some of the best the LCS has to offer. If FlyQuest can come out of this week unscathed, they will put themselves in a territory of their own as the other teams battle for second place in the regular season.

LCS in the middle: Teams battling for final playoff spots

TSM is tied for 6th place with 100 Thieves at 5-6.

Finally, there is an interesting block of CLG, TSM, 100 Thieves, and Team Liquid all competing against one another for those final two playoff spots. While there are a couple of weeks before the end of the regular season, these coming weeks will provide a grand perspective on which two teams will ultimately secure their spot in playoffs. Currently, CLG is the best of the four teams and has rebounded quite nicely since their four-game losing streak.

Still, week 6 will be an opportunity for all four teams to gain some much-needed ground on the rest of the other three teams in this tight playoff race. With the veteran talent that 100 Thieves and Team Liquid have in their teams, none of these four teams are in the clear just yet. A strong 6th week of LCS play could be what keeps them above the rest.
