MAD Lions could face an LEC team at Worlds

The World’s of 2022 could create an unprecedented image in recent years: two teams from one region facing each other in the same group. Riot Games has adapted the group draw regulations due to the absence of the League of Legends Continental League (LCL) and the presence of a fourth representative of the League of Legends European Championship (LEC). This change implies that, in the event that the third and fourth European representatives exceed the play-inMAD Lions could face a rival from the same region.

All movement comes from the absence of the LCL. The Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) league has been suspended since the start of the Ukraine war. Given this context, the LEC started to have four seats for World’s although for sporting merits he had three. The change of representation generated unprecedented scenarios in the draw of groups that were not contemplated. Given this situation, Riot Games has decided to be more flexible, taking into account the origin of the problem. MAD Lions benefited from this as, after a strong summer season, they qualified for the World Cup without having won a best-of-five series all year.

The hypothetical matchup between MAD Lions against G2 Esports or the other LEC finalist in the group stage of World’s would only happen if the two European teams in the play-in They get past that stage. If the LEC’s third or fourth seed fell at that point in the competition, the rule update should not be applied. Nor if the third representative is left out but MAD Lions does get through to the group stage. The revision of the rules would only apply to the Madrid organization, which won the last place on the Old Continent for the World Cup.

Last week the LEC finally met the four teams that will represent it at the World Cup in North America. Instead, the organization still depends on the bottom line. G2 Esports is the only club that is qualified directly to the group stage by accumulation of points. Instead, the loser of the matchup between Rogue and Fnatic will go to the play-in. On the other hand, the winner of the grand final will be the first seeds of Europe.
