Over-the-top moments, cosplayers, and more: Scenes from LCK’s first offline finals in 2.5 years

The 2022 LCK Spring Finals garnered attention and excitement not only from fans in Korea, but from all over the world. It was a series between two teams that are widely considered to be the best in the world, and the anticipation was further raised by the fact that the two teams did not play with their full rosters. [due to Gen.G players catching COVID on both regular split matches against T1]. For these two teams, fighting for the LCK trophy at the final stage was like the end of an anime series.

From the cosplayers who gathered at the venue to show off their cosplay, the LCK legends who held autograph signings at the venue, and of course the 3,500 fans who somehow managed to beat the odds and get a ticket, the finals The 2022 LCK Spring Tournaments were an event that esports fans have been ripping off for the past two and a half years.
