In what turned out to be a coinflip series, 100T was eliminated by TSM to finish 5th place in the LCS for Spring 2020. However, the intensely close match was full of surprises: more Ssumday slippage, a Ryoma pop-off, and Cody Sun scorching. Cole and Jordan discuss salty runbacks, a new midlaner making his case for starting in NA, and the daunting task of improving a better-than-expected squad with limited options on the table.
