2018 World Championship - Group Stage

From Liquipedia League of Legends Wiki


Format[edit]

  • Group Stage - October 10th - 17th in South Korea Busan
    • Four teams from Play-In Round 2 join twelve teams with direct entry from Korea, China, Europe, Taiwan/Hong Kong/Macau, North America and Vietnam.
    • All sixteen teams are divided into four groups where they play a Double Round Robin format.
    • All matches are played in a Bo1.
    • Top two teams in each group advance to Knockout Stage.
    • Bottom two teams in each group are eliminated.

Group Stage Draw[edit]

  • Pools
    • Twelve teams have been placed into two Draw Pools based on past regional performance over the last two years of international competition.
      • Pool 1: First seeds from Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau (LMS), Europe (EU LCS), China (LPL) and Korea (LCK).
      • Pool 2: First seeds from North America (NA LCS) and Vietnam (VCS); second seeds from Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau (LMS), Europe (EU LCS), China (LPL), North America (LPL) and Korea (LCK); and third seed from Korea (LCK).
      • Pool 3: Four qualifying teams from Play-In.
  • Rules
    • No group can have more than one team from the same region. So, for example, first seed from China and second seed from China cannot inhabit the same group.
    • Each group must have exactly one team from Pool 1, two teams from Pool 2 and one team that qualifies from the Play-In Stage.
    • The Play-In teams will be drawn into the already existing groups after the final Play-In Elimination game on October 7.
