League of Legends World Championship – Your LoL Worlds Crash Course

LoL Worlds has a special place in the esports ecosystem. Not only does it consistently make headlines with its record-breaking viewership figures, but the fact that it’s the ultimate end-of-the-year tournament for the largest competitive game is the icing on top of the metaphorical cake. The League of Legends World Championship is set to be the biggest gaming event yet, so here’s everything that makes this League of Legends tournament stand out from the rest!

LoL Worlds Format: Play-Ins and Main Event

A huge part of what makes Worlds exciting is the format. This is one of the longest esports tournaments in the esports ecosystem. For example, the 2019 League of Legends World Championship is scheduled to run from October 2 to November 10, so there will be over a month of high-level LoL esports action in autumn of 2019.

However, not all World Championship matches are born equal

The tournament is split into two parts: the Play-In stage and the Main Event. The Play-In stage pits twelve first-place teams from emerging regions in a battle against each other, as they go through a Bo1 double round robin group stage. Afterwards, the #1 team from each group takes on a #2 team from a different group in the Bo5 playoffs, and the four winners advance to the Main Event.
This is where the real action starts. The LoL Worlds Main Event is an all-out brawl between the best League of Legends teams in the world, as they kick it off with a Bo1 double round robin group stage. Of course, this setting bears a striking resemblance to the Play-In stage format, but the stakes are much higher here, so no one wants to go out without the fight.
Once the dust settles, the top-2 teams from each group qualified for the Main Event playoffs to challenge each other in Bo5 matches. The competition is stiff, as only the best of the best get to this point, so each Bo5 match is a flurry of fast-paced action and split-second macro calls. And by the end of it all, the team that remains standing gets a significant chunk of the multi-million dollar prize pool and the title of the #1 League of Legends team in the world.

Teams and Titans: From Jensen to Rookie

Perhaps the best thing about this tournament format is that everyone gets to prove their worth. Every region comes with its own playstyle and competitive meta, and the 2019 League of Legends World Championship is the perfect place for all of them to come together. Combine that with the fact that fans get to cheer for the teams that represent their regions, and it’s easy to see why Worlds is so popular.

This dynamic also affects the players

Every LoL esports league has a number of superstars—the apex predators that have already dominated their respective regions. At LoL Worlds, the greats fight against their equals. With that, you can see dozens of matchups you wouldn’t be able to witness otherwise. Just how well the face of North America’s LCS—Doublelift—match up against the Chinese AD carry powerhouse that is Uzi? And who will come out on top in a nerve-wracking mid lane standoff between Caps and Faker?
Whatever you choose, you won’t be disappointed. Worlds is where the best go to leave their names and legacies in history, so winning an event like the 2019 League of Legends World Championship is the dream of every LoL esports pro-gamer. And when you consider the passion, pressure, and performances that emerge as a result of this drive, it’s hard to resist the urge to tune in to a LoL Worlds stream.

Pushing Limits: The New Era of Competition

The 2019 League of Legends World Championship is still several months off, but it’s already set to become an important part of esports history. A decade or two ago, an event of this magnitude would be nigh unthinkable. Now, Worlds regularly pulls hundreds of millions of viewers for its most anticipated matches—a testament to the growth of the global esports ecosystem.
Granted, it’s hard to tell whether competitive gaming will continue to grow at such a rapid pace. But the sole fact that it’s gotten to this point is already impressive in and of itself. And no matter how you look at it, Worlds is will be a tournament to remember.
