G2 Esports is a first team to qualify for Worlds 20222022-08-14 00:13:00
G2 Esports become the first to earn their spot at League of Legends World Championship 2022. They did it after securing the top spot in the LEC 2022 Summer group stage. The official LoL account on Twitter already congratulated the organization.
G2 was able to make it so early thanks to four slots that Europe received this year. At this point, the team secured at least 180 points from the Spring playoffs and the current position in the group stage. These points give them 1st seeding in the Summer playoffs since Misfits and MAD Lions cannot accumulate more points. This way, G2 has at least a fourth-place finish even in the worst-case scenario.
Worlds 2022 will be held in the USA with a play-in stage running in Mexico. The dates of the event are 29 September — 5 November. The grand final will take place in Los Angeles, California.
