Hello everyone! The time is upon us, with the list of teams qualified for the 2021 Worlds Championship! With the last matches, American and European fans experienced a rollercoaster of emotions, both with TSM and G2. But there have also been lots of ups from the underdogs like Rogue or 100 Thieves, so this competitive season was one of the most fascinating in recent years.
And now, finally, the stage is set for the 2021 League of Legends World Championship!
For the second year running, the end-of-year event will take place in China. The multi-city tour will include five distinct cities from Shanghai in the opening stage of the tournament to Shenzhen in the finals.
Worlds 2021 will bring together the top teams from 12 regional leagues to compete for the Summoner’s Cup. At its full capacity, the 60,000-seat Universiade Sports Centre in Shenzhen will be hosting the finals on Nov. 6.
Here are all of the teams attending Worlds 2021:
- DWG KIA
DWG qualified for Worlds 2021 based on championship points gained over the season. A total of 190 points—90 from the Spring Split and 100 from the Summer Split—secured qualification for the reigning world champions.
Gen.G secured a place at Worlds 2021 after accumulating 150 championship points, while T1 made it to Worlds 2021 against all the odds. A run through the Summer Split playoffs—beating SANDBOX in the quarterfinals and Gen.G in the semis—earned the team 100 championship points, adding to the 30 gained in spring.
- MAD Lions
After placing first in the LEC summer regular season with a 13-5 record, a hard-fought win against Misfits was all Rogue needed to qualify for Worlds 2021.
In a repeat performance of the LEC Spring Split playoffs, MAD Lions beat G2 Esports 3-1 to secure a spot at Worlds 2021. Fnatic did the same yesterday, ending the long-time rivals and earned Europe’s final spot.
LCS (North America)
- 100 Thieves
- Team Liquid
For the first time since 2018, 100 Thieves qualified for Worlds after beating Evil Geniuses in the LCS Summer Split playoffs. A roster reshuffle in the offseason has made a sizable difference to the team.
Team Liquid qualified for Worlds 2021 after a decisive 3-1 win over TSM in the LCS Summer playoffs. The team got it together when it mattered the most, despite issues with health, player management, and coaching staff throughout the split.
A return to form for spring champions Cloud9 saw the team qualify for Worlds 2021 after a narrow 3-2 win against TSM in the loser’s bracket of the Summer Split playoffs. NA’s most successful team will once again represent the region on the world stage.
