League of Legends World Championship - Day 1

League of Legends has become the most widely played game throughout the world and so it hardly comes as a surprise that the best of the best will now be competing against each other during the League of Legends world championship. This year, 3 European, 3 American and 6 Asian teams will be contending with each other for the title of “World Champion” along with one million U.S. dollars.

The teams have qualified in the championships at region level this year and form the following groups:

Group A:

Team NameRegion
SK GamingEurope
CLG.NANorth America
Azubu FrostKorea
Invictus GamingChina

Group B:

Team NameRegion
DignitasNorth America
Najin SwordKorea
Saigon JokersChina

The first matches in group stage began yesterday at 18:00 +0100 and held many surprises. The European and American teams were virtually overrun by the Asian teams and were having difficulties with assessing the opposing teams, who in most cases were not particularly well-known. This lead to the following outcomes:

Matches Group A

Team 1 Team 2

Saigon Jokersvs.Dignitasx

These outcomes lead to the following final scores:

Group A:

Invictus GamingChina21
CLG.NANord Amerika12
SK GamingEuropa03

Group B:

Team NameRegionVictoriesLosses
Najin SwordKorea30
Saigon JokersVietnam12

The two leading teams of each group will be in the quarter-finals. As these are merely 4 teams and obviously 8 teams are required to have quarter-finals, another 4 teams will be joining. From the 5 best teams in the championships on region level, 4 teams have been chosen by lot who have now received a wildcard for the quarter-finals:
  • Moscow Five, Europe
  • Team Solomid, North America
  • World Elite, China
  • Taipei Assassins, Taiwan

The following pairs will be facing each other in the quarter-finals:

The encounters will take place on the following dates:

Too bad that the most ( famous) teams were disqualified at Day 1 ,I guess too much streaming compromised their strategies.
