It’s only a month until Worlds 2023 starts and we’ll be able to see the best League of Legends teams in the world compete for the championship. Each year, we have favorites and whether they come from the LCK, the LPL, or any other region, there’s always room for Cinderellas much like DRX’s run last year. This year, the championship takes place in South Korea. We’ll see matches spread across different cities in the region.
Also, don’t forget the Worlds each year comes with a finals opening ceremony as well, which most of the time is a huge highlight for the big finals. We can’t wait to see what Riot Games has in store for us this year.
