The stories of the final qualifier days

  • In Europe, Splyce made its first return to Worlds since 2016, after beating Schalke 04 in the second round of the LEC Gauntlet. Splyce ended up losing the final to Fnatic, which meant a Play-in start for them and a Group Stage seed for Fnatic.
  • By winning the LCL, an old EU brand in Unicorns of Love also clutched Worlds seed. The brand came close to making Worlds on several occasions in Europe, but couldn’t quite close it, so that’s a first for the pink jerseys.
  • In Japan, DetonatioN FocusMe won their third LJL split in a row and re-qualified for Worlds. DFM are yet to beat the Play-in stage at an international tournament, but just making it to Worlds two years in a row can be counted as success for the organization.
  • Known for their off-meta picks and crowd-pleasing style, GAM Esports (formerly Gigabyte Marines), won the VCS Summer Split and secured a spot in the Group Stage. Team Flash is VCS’ second team.
