The World Championship 2022 It is just around the corner. As we thought, it seems that the most important international appointment of the competitive year of League of Legends will follow the same format as past years. The community is tired of it and they ask for changes that make the competition more attractive. At the end of the day, we hardly ever get a chance to see the best teams in the world duke it out on Summoner’s Rift.
Some spoke of a double elimination format similar to that of the League of Legends European Championship (LEC). Luka Perković himself «perkz» alluded to this possible change after his defeat in the Worlds 2020. However, today there is another thought. Why not follow the new format of the League of Legends Pro League (LPL)?
The format of the LPL in Worlds? The idea of community
The top Chinese League of Legends competition follows a clear format. We are first faced with three consecutive rounds in which the classifieds face playoffs from second place. On the other hand, the top two in the table wait in another boxwhere they will face the two classified from the previous three rounds.
Those two teams that lose in this top box: round 1 they will go to a lower table, where they will face each other for a place in the next phase. On the other hand, the winners will face each other in a match from the brackets higher. The winner will be classified straight to the endwhile the loser of this box will face the winner of the match brackets lower.
A priori it may seem like a somewhat complicated idea, but once seen in action we realize that we are facing one of the best paintings of playoffs of the world and that many ask in the World’s of LOLespecially from the semifinals, where we would already find ourselves facing the four best teams in the competitive world of the Riot Games MOBA.
