The League of Legends Worlds Group Stage has finally concluded. Three disheartened North American teams faced long flights back across the Atlantic.
In a year where people thought we would see the first western champion since Season One, Europe's teams will have to be on the ones to break through. Meanwhile, China is looking to grab a second straight championship and possibly unseat Korea as the most dominant LoL division in the world.
Korea's LCK and Europe's LEC send three teams, China's LPL sends just two. Predictions for the event below:
(LCK) Damwon vs. (LEC) G2 : 3-2 G2
(LCK) SKT vs. (LEC) Splyce: 3-0 SKT
(LCK) Griffin vs. (LPL) Invictus Gaming: 3-2 IG
(LPL) Fun Plus Phoenix vs. (LEC) Fnatic: 3-1 Fnatic
G2 > SKT 3-2,
IG > Fnatic 3-1
IG > G2 3-1
