LoL - Worlds 2018
The biggest League of Legends event of 2018 returns to South Korea this year, but superstar “Faker” is a key name missing from the action.
A few changes were made this year and the World Championship is now divided into two phases: the Play-In Stage and the Main Event. All 24 teams at the tournament have already qualified and, thanks to adjustments made to the prize money on offer, will receive a share of 12.5% of the revenue from the championship skins.
A further 12.5% of this revenue will be added to the base prize pool of $2,225,000. Last year’s total prize pool didn’t beat the $5 million mark that was reached in 2016, even though the prize pool was boosted by 25% of the revenue from the championship skins.
SK Telecom T1 miss out:
Three-time world champion “Faker” and his team SK Telecom T1 lost out in the final of last year’s World Championship against Samsung Galaxy (now known as Gen.G Esports). The players were unable to recover from this disappointment in 2018 and did not perform well in the LCK Summer Split, finishing in seventh place. SKT then took on Gen.G Esports in the Korean Regional Qualifier, but their attempts to gain revenge for their loss in 2017 were in vain as they went down 3-2 in a tight best-of-five series.
This means that “Faker” misses out on Worlds for the second time in his career and will not have the opportunity to play in front of his home crowd.
Play-In Stage format:
Group stage (round 1)
- 12 teams take part
- Teams are split into four groups based on their seedings
- Double round robin
- Best-of-one format
- The top two teams from each group qualify for round two
- Eight teams play each other in four qualifiers
- Group winners play against the runners-up
- Best-of-five format
- The winners qualify for the Main Event
As winners of the LCK Summer Split, KT Rolster qualified as Korea’s top seed. Led by veteran jungler “Score”, this Korean super team is a strong contender for the title.
Formerly known as “Rebels Anarchy”, Afreeca Freecs was announced at the end of 2015 and have spent the last few years putting together a threatening roster. They have enjoyed some success over the last years, with several top-three finishes in the Spring and Summer Splits. They are one of Korea’s most explosive teams and strongly play around their superstar top laner “Kiin”. Afreeca Freecs have the potential to bring some big teams to their knees.
The title holders haven’t had the best of seasons since winning last year’s World Championship and could only secure middling positions in the Spring and Summer Splits. However, they come into the tournament on a high having won three matches in a row, including a victory over SK Telecom T1, to secure their spot at this showpiece. They should not be underestimated as they look to defend their crown.
