LGD Gaming qualified for Worlds by battling through the lower bracket of the LPL Summer Playoffs beating the likes of World Elite and former champions Invictus Gaming to secure fourth seed. Their regular season performance was much to be desired finishing 6th overall on a 10 - 6 match record.

The team qualified as the second seed from the region and had a 14 - 4 match record during the regular season.

A highlight match of the Play-in stage, Europe meets North America in MAD Lions and Team Liquid in this head-to-head matchup.
The LEC representatives are the favourites given their strong regular season performance that saw them secure second place on a 12 - 6 match record. The Lions would falter in the Playoffs however, losing out to G2 and Rogue to earn the fourth seed from Europe.
Team Liquid are the surprise participant in the Play-in stage after losing out to FlyQuest and Team SoloMid in the Playoffs. The team were largely dominant in the Summer regular season where they went 15 - 3 and ultimately finished top of the league.
