Who wins League of Legends World Championships 2018?
The World Championship of LoL Season is set to be played out in the September 2018. Meanwhile, fans are busy cheering and spectating their favorite teams in the Spring LCS. Also at the mid-point of the season, we will have the opportunity to see the Mid-Season Invitation (MSI) 2018 that will come just before the winter season. In 2017, the organizers of the competition made some changes to the format of MSI and Worlds. One of the recognized changes was the replacement of the annual Wildcard qualifiers of both competitions with the two stages which were named as Play-In Stage and the playoffs. Since the organizers haven’t announced any changes regarding these formats so it is safe to assume that the 2 staged World Championships are set to take place in 2018 as well. Moreover, while speaking about predictions, it is safe to assume that from the early weeks of the Spring LCS the Korean region will once again be the dominant force in the Worlds 2018. Moreover, it is highly probable that the final of the Worlds will be a showdown between 2 Koreans teams. The three-time World Champions, SK Telecom T1 will be looking for the redemption of 2017 final. However, the team has lost some of the players before the start of the season and are currently finding wins hard to come by. Overall it will is expected to be a great Worlds 2018 and we might finally see teams from the west standing up to the veteran teams from South Korea and China.
