The League of Legends World Championship in 2022 is almost here. Worlds 2022, beginning with the play-in stage on September 29, will embark on a tour across North America. To determine who will lift the Summoners Cup this year, the 24 strongest teams from around the world will compete in a month-long tournament on North American soil.

The League of Legends Worlds is the highest level of competition. Every year, from January to September, regional leagues from all over the world compete for first place by ranking their best teams in the Spring and Summer splits of the year-long season. To represent their native country at Worlds is the objective at the end of the split.

Worlds is the ultimate tournament goal for every single competitive player, with teams traveling from all over the world. In this one-month-long culmination to the year-long journey for each and every player and team that has progressed this far, viewers and fans can anticipate the finest players and best gameplay of the year with a unique opportunity to showcase what they are made of on the global stage.

North American Tour

Teams from China, South Korea, North America, Europe, Brazil, Japan, Turkey, and numerous other “wild card” regions will compete at Worlds 2022, which kicks off with the play-in stage on September 29.

Twelve teams from around the globe will compete in the play-in stage, which will be organized into two groups of six teams. Each group’s top seed will automatically advance to the group stage. In order to select the final two berths in the Worlds 2022 main stage, the second seed in each group will proceed to the qualification match.

The winning team from the elimination game between the third and fourth-place teams in the opposing group will be their opponents. In the end, four of the 12 teams will advance, while the other eight will be eliminated. From September 29 until October 4, the play-in stage will last approximately one week.

The 16 qualifying teams will compete in the double-round robin group stage after being divided into groups of four. Each group’s top two teams will proceed to the quarterfinals. The Group Stage will take place in New York City from October 7–16. The same venue will host the quarterfinals, which take place from October 20 to 23.

The semi-finals will follow on October 29–30 at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, while Worlds 2022 will come to an end on November 5 at the Chase Center (home of the Golden State Warriors) in San Francisco.

LoL Worlds Tournament Format

One of the most crucial things to understand about the World Championship’s format is that it will consist of three distinct phases. A Play-In Phase always precedes the main stage, which consists of the Group Phase and the Knockout Rounds. But let’s go through each stage of the competition in more depth.

Worlds’ Play-In Phase

The Play-In Phase is the opening stage of the competition. The final four teams for the main tournament will be selected during this play-in round. To compete for the remaining berths in the competition, twelve teams are split into two groups of six. The event will begin with the Play-In phase.

Mexico City will be the location of the Play-In Phase. Each team in the first team’s group will play each other once. After that, the top-seeded teams will automatically advance to the Group Phase, leaving two more spots available.

The second-place teams go to the Play-In Playoffs, while the fourth-place teams face off in a best-of-five match against the third-place club from the opposing group. To decide which team will receive the final two berths in the Group Phase of the Main Event, the victor of this match will play another best-of-five match against the second-placed team.

Main Stage: Group Phase

Next up is the Group Phase, which has a total of sixteen teams. There are four four-person groupings on display. Each group consists of two best-of-one series matches between teams. The winning and runner-up teams will go to the competition’s knockout round and finally get to play some best-of-five series.

Teams from the same region are not permitted to be in the same group, per past seasons, but this time around, given the arrival of a fourth LEC club, we may have to have two LPL or two LEC teams in the same group.

Main Stage: Knockout Phase

From this point on, the tournament begins to feature some best-of-five games. This portion of the competition progresses through the quarterfinals, semifinals, and major finals event, which will take hold in San Francisco, according to a single elimination format.

Eight teams will advance to the tournament’s knockout round, which will include four quarterfinal matches, two semifinal matches, and one championship match. We do need to know who your favorite pick-em team is for this year, though.


This League of Legends World Championship’s current structure has received a lot of negative feedback from fans. A lower bracket for teams that lost, in the opinion of many supporters, would make the tournament more entertaining and give viewers more to watch. Fans get less pumped and enthusiastic about the competition overall during the one-week wait between the semi-finals and finals.

Additionally, since lower bracket runs were introduced in leagues like the LPL and LEC, we’ve witnessed a ton of very cool lower bracket runs that have produced some thrilling esports action. This summer, LNG participated in some of the top best-of-five series, but despite consistently winning games, they were placed in the bottom bracket.

The present format of this format does not provide what fans desire, who want to see more best-of-five games. Since the most recent VALORANT’s Championship adhered to the more conventional tournament structure, fans have expressed their dissatisfaction on Twitter and Reddit.
