For the LCK Spring 2024 playoffs, just the top six of the ten franchised esports organizations were able to qualify. The seeding for the playoffs is subject to their performance in the regular season.

The playoffs will kick off from round 2 in a double-elimination bracket format. The top two teams from the regular season, Gen.G and T1, have been exempted from round 1 and will automatically advance to round 2.

The third seed, Hanwha Life Esports, for round 1, has chosen Kwangdong Freecs as their competitors. The remaining team, Dplus KIA, will combat the fourth seed, KT Rolster.

In round 2, Gen.G, the seed one, will choose their contenders from the winners of round 1. The triumphant teams from round 2 will proceed to the winner’s final, while those losing will fall to the lower bracket.

The initial match of round 3 (the upper bracket final) determines the first finalist, with the losing team moving down to the lower bracket final (round 4) against the bottom bracket winner from the second match of round 3.

The lower bracket final’s winner then advances to the grand final, where they challenge the winner from the upper bracket final for the championship title.

The champion and the second-place team from the LCK Spring 2024 will represent the Korean region at MSI 2024.
