Invictus improve to 5-0 in LPL

Invictus Gaming remained the only unbeaten team in the League of Legends Pro League (LPL) spring season, beating LGD Gaming 2-1 on Thursday in Week 3 action.

The China-based LPL shut down after Jan. 19 due to the spread of the coronavirus, but it resumed March 9 in an online-only format. Players are competing from their teams’ headquarters, but they were required to go through a 14-day quarantine before they were allowed to resume play.

Invictus Gaming sit atop the LPL standings at 5-0, with JD Gaming and eStar tied for second place at 5-1.

In the other two Thursday matches, Team WE swept Dominus Esports 2-0, and FunPlus Phoenix topped Suning 2-0.

The top eight teams from the spring season will advance to the single-elimination playoffs. All playoff matches will be best-of-five, with the winner clinching a berth in the 2020 Mid-Season Invitational, which will include the top teams from all of the League of Legends regions.

Week 3 continues Friday with three matches:

—Rogue Warriors vs. LNG Esports
