LCM Semi Finals & Grand Finals
The League of Legends Championship Malaysia (LCM) Semi Finals and Grand Finals concluded on the grand stage with 3 juggernauts fighting tooth and nail for the throne. Geek Fam started their run in the upper brackets, facing off against Fire Dragoon but got swiftly knocked down to the lower bracket with a clean 3-0 sweep.
The defending champions, Kuala Lumpur Hunters, waited patiently as Geek Fam dropped down to face them in an iconic rematch from last split’s grand finals. The series was forced to a full BO5 with the Hunters prevailing once more, clinching a 3-2 victory and a trip to the LCM Grand Finals.
The Grand Finals kicked off with a blaze as Fire Dragoon struck Kuala Lumpur Hunters hard with a convincing Game 1 victory. However, the Dragoons angered the Tigers as they fought back fiercely in Game 2, dealing the crushing blow to the Fire Nation with a Baron steal and a push to the Nexus. Game 3 and Game 4 subsequently went to the hands of Kuala Lumpur Hunters as they demonstrated impeccable mechanical prowess, eventually exhausting the flames of Fire Dragoon and defending their throne once again with a 3-1 victory!
2nd Runner-up: Geek Fam

Kuala Lumpur Hunters also earned themselves another shot at the Garena Premier League (GPL) as the representative for Malaysia!
