All teams qualified for the 2021 League of Legends World Championship
The stage is set for 2021 League of Legends World Championship.
For the second year in a row, the year-end event will take place in China. The multi-city tour will feature five separate cities from Shanghai in the opening phase of the tournament with Shenzhen in the final.
“We have locked down all five Chinese cities after an extremely competitive bidding process, and we are now ready to deliver on our promise to players with a multi-city tour for the biggest esports event on the planet,” Riot’s esports manager said. John Needham said in June.
The 2021 Worlds will bring together the best teams from 12 regional leagues to compete for the Summoner’s Cup. At full capacity, the 60,000-seat Universiade Sports Center in Shenzhen will host the finals on November 6.
A total of 24 teams will compete at the event, including four teams from China and Korea, three teams from Europe and North America, two teams from Taiwan and Vietnam, and one team each from the CIS, Latin America, Turkey, Brazil, Japan and Oceania.
Here are all the teams present at the 2021 World Cup.
DWG qualified for the 2021 World Cup based on league points accumulated over the season. A total of 170 points, 90 for the Spring Split and 80 for the Summer Split, secured the qualification of the reigning world champions.
After finishing first in the LEC summer regular season with a 13-5 record, a relentless victory over Misfits was all Rogue needed to qualify for the 2021 Worlds. The addition of Odoamne in the top lane has been vital to the success of the team over the past eight months.
In a rehearsal of the LEC Spring Split 2021 playoffs, the MAD Lions beat G2 Esports 3-1 to secure a place at the Worlds. The team’s team effort was more than enough to defeat the former LEC champions, who left a lot to be desired in the top five series.
