In League of Legends, the fierce competition continues before the World Championship 2022. Leagues in different parts of the world and teams in these leagues are trying to reach the World Championship. We know that the summer months are very busy for Esports. Especially the cancellation of the tournaments due to the problems experienced in the last few years bothered them.
However, in 2022, the Esports scene, especially LoL, was revived. In today’s article, we wanted to look at the League of Legends tournaments that will be held in 2022. Now, if you’re ready, let’s get started and take a quick look at the details of our guide.
- League of Legends 2022 World Championship
The World Championship tournament is the pinnacle of the League of Legends Esports scene. We currently do not know where or when 2022 Worlds will begin. However, it is expected to take place between October and November. The tournament, which is held every year, was held in 2021 as well, with a total of 22 teams. We would like to remind you that 24 teams can participate in the League of Legends World Championship tournaments under normal conditions.
Furthermore, it is also known that the tournament will feature a prize pool of $2,225,000 or more. Teams must succeed in their respective regional leagues to qualify for Worlds 2022. For example, teams wishing to qualify for the LPL must have achieved first place in the LPL Summer or LPL Championship Points.
Since a detailed roadmap of LoL Worlds 2022 has not been published yet, we cannot comment on it much. However, it is known that Riot Games is planning a large tournament offline covering the North American continent. You can find the list of venues where the tournament will occur below:
