Week 4 of the 2022 League of Legends Championship Series concluded Sunday with the marquee matchup of the split between the top two teams in the league. Evil Geniuses came out on top against Team Liquid Honda, but there were some upsets and sparks elsewhere throughout the day. Here is the Week 4 2022 LCS Summer Day 2 wrapup.

Player of the Day:  EG Danny

Evil Geniuses went into their match against Team Liquid Honda atop the LCS standings alone. However, a loss to TL would put them in a tie for first, and TL were hungry to bring EG down a notch. But EG were simply the better team on Sunday, in large part because of their superstar bot laner Kyle “Danny” Sakamaki.

The playmaking bot laner had a statement game against TL on Ezreal with a 11/1/8 KDA (kills/deaths/assists) statline and of course, an EG victory. There isn’t a bot lane in the region at the moment that can touch EG, and their 8-1 record speaks for it.

Most memorable moment: Instinct pentakill

TSM have a storied history of bot laners popping off and having incredible individual performances. That legacy continued  Sunday when their brand new rookie bot laner Tony “Instinct” Ng pulled off a pentakill in just his second game ever in the LCS. TSM’s roster decisions are finally looking good after the upset win over FlyQuest.

Best Quote: Jojo back at it again

It’s been a little while since we last saw Joseph “Jojopyun” Pyun talk smack on social media, but the mid-lane star for EG had some choice words for the most legendary player in the LCS. He backed it up with his play too.

Jojo transcended the media sphere smack talk when he decided to double down on his confidence on the live broadcast after EG’s convincing win over TL.

What’s next

The LCS teams will be back on the Rift next weekend with the action kicking off starting at 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday. All 10 teams will be back for two more days of games with marquee matchups between EG and 100 Thieves as well as Counter Logic Gaming taking on TL.
