Worlds 2022 will kick off in several locations in the US and one in Mexico. It will begin on September 29 at Artz Pedregal in Mexico City, Mexico, and will conclude on October 5.
The group stage draw rules of Worlds 2022 is quite amazing as it tries to make each group and play-ins as competitive as possible by avoiding the teams in the same region to be drawn in the same group. Riot Games will hold on the specific team and draw it to another group.
China’s club LOL teams dominated the past two World Championships with FunPlus Phoenix winning the title in 2019 and Edward Gamings in 2021. This year, the current 2021 World Champion Edward Gamings will have a tough group stage as they will face two strong opponents in the three time World Champion T1 and the Los Angeles based Cloud9 in the Group A of Worlds 2022.
The most accomplished regions in the Worlds are LCK (League of legends Champions Korea) with six titles, five finals appearances, and six third to fourth place finishes, and LPL (League of Legends Pro League) of China claimed three titles, three runner-ups, and five third to fourth place finishes. It is expected that still South Korean and Chinese club teams will be the contending teams and have the highest odds of taking home the Summoner’s Cup.
