Storylines[edit]

MAD Lions Return to Play-Ins[edit]

In their third consecutive Worlds appearance, MAD Lions once again find themselves in the Play-In stage, which previously knocked them out in 19-20th place to make them the first major region team in history to fail making it to the group stage. With more major region representatives in the event than ever before, one major region team is guaranteed to be eliminated in Play-Ins, which MAD Lions will hope to avoid this time around.

T1's Last Minute Coaching Changes[edit]

Following a drop in form in the LCK 2022 Summer Split, T1 announced coaching staff changes with Bengi moving to the head coach position and Sky joining from T1 Academy as a new coaching staff member.

Kaori in for Evil Geniuses[edit]

Following the choice by Danny to take a step back from the starting roster[5], Kaori moved up from Evil Geniuses Academy[6], taking 100 Thieves to 5 games in the LCS 2022 Summer Playoffs. With just a single LCS match under their belt and no international experience, Kaori will be looking to fill Danny's shoes for the team.
