FAQ:

When's Worlds?
- Play-In Stage W1: September 23-26 at 1:00 PM China Standard Time (CST)
- Play-In Stage W2: September 28-29 at 11:00 AM CST
- Group stage W1: October 5-8 at 3:00 PM CST

- Semifinals: October 28-29 at 4:00 PM CST
- Finals: November 4 at 3:30 PM CST

Where do I buy tickets?
- https://en.damai.cn/event/tickets_130170/

Which stream should I watch?
- You should MOST DEFINITELY not use Riot's terrible esports site that barely works and half the times forget you were in spoilerfree mode. Use twitch or youtube

These games are all at like 4 in the morning, wtf should I do?
- Again, don't use Riot's sucky site, go to the lolevent vods subreddit, they organize everything very neatly, keep shit 100% spoilerfree and upload vods super quick

I hear we now doto??
- 25% of the sales of Championship Ashe and the Championship ward will go toward raising the prizepool. Also something about icons, I think you can give tsm your money that way idk...

Base prizepool is $2.25 million, after that money is split like so:
  • World Champion: 37.5% of prize pool
  • 2nd place: 13.5%
  • 3rd/4th place: 7%
  • 5th-8th place: 4%
  • 9th-12th place: 2.25%
  • 13th-16th place: 1.25%
  • 17th-20th place: 0.75%
  • 21st-24th place: 0.50%

I hear we now overwatch??
- There's might be an event where you can unlock loot chests so you can finally acquire your third copy of Vandal Brand but nothing confirmed yet

The teams at worlds:

I want to buy worlds merch, where can I do that?
- SHUT UP AND GO BUY AN ANIME T-SHIRT



WAAHH WAHH I really want to complain that SKT always wins!!
- GTFO MY THREAD

Need more info written by someone not shit at writing like me?
- Check out the worlds official about page. This is a cool Rito video about how everything works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1ryBmeqLIQ

Links:
- Schedule
- Official Rito VODs not even gonna link to this shit, use loleventvods god damn it
- Official League OT Discord

at least put a list of the teams

also

get used to me spamming this

a lot

Doublelift isn't so great? Are you kidding me? When was the last time you saw a player with such an ability and movement with Vayne? Doublelift puts the game on another level, and we will be blessed if we ever see a player with his skill and passion for the game again. Faker breaks records. Sneaky breaks records. Doublelift breaks the rules. You can keep your statistics. I prefer the magic. And his haircut.

6 days until play-ins, should be fun.

Any predictions for which #1 seed is going to bust out of play-ins?

Team WE, Fnatic, C9, and HKA are the main choices.

Faker and SKT T1 have won every Worlds they've been in. Their only real competition this year barring a major upset is Longzhu, another Korean team.

i feel like first seed is less interesting than seeing which 4 teams are gonna get out

cos team WE look like the best team in the play-ins but who knows, maybe gambit or the brazil team are better than washed up C9 or fnatic (probably not, but it's hard to measure those teams)

Rooting for C9, TSM, any other non-korean team in that order.

They have the best opportunities they have had in a while this year. TSM got the lucky draw like some EU team got last year, so they should be able to get out of groups and probably into semis if they actually perform and get 1st in their group.

C9 are probably screwed, but IMT might be able to do something in their group.

Last two years they went 6-3 first week and bombed the second week. I've never been a fan of TSM's international play, as they just go standard typically and try to win late game. I don't think that is as effective against better teams internationally. Immortals lost to TSM pretty convincingly. C9 just squeaked by to get in.

We will see, but best case I think one.... probably TSM makes it out of groups. I don't know if C9 even gets out of the play-in.

I'm just not super optimistic. I haven't been impressed by the level of play this past split in NA. TSM did have a very favorable group draw though. So a #1 spot is possible for them.

I don't really feel the same way. I feel like there's been steady improvement for the region. We are long past the days of sending players who are hopelessly outskilled to global events. Competitively the mid/lower level teams in NA seem stronger than ever for the most part, and I think there are a number of really strong players in certain positions. Maybe things will go horribly wrong, but I think NA should surprise people.

I thought this year I'd be cheering against SKT, but my dude Huni is there and deserves to win Worlds more than basically anyone imo.

Also hoping IMT makes it far.
