The final World Qualifiers (WQ) for the 2021 World Championships will be held in the summer of 2018, and the qualifiers have already begun. The first round of WQ has just been completed, and the teams that will not advance to the next level are as follows:
Since we last published an entry, many of the teams that were excluded from the (big) qualifiers for the World’s are back in the fray. In this post, we’ve added a new update from our sources, and also a new interview from the reigning world champions, Japan. There’s also an important update on the list of teams that will be represented at Worlds in Tokyo this year.
With the qualification process for League of Legends Worlds 2021 drawing ever closer we are now in the final stages of the qualification process: the remaining teams will compete in the playoffs and determine the eight teams that will join the three automatic qualifiers.
Good day, lovely folks! I’m happy to see you’re still on board with my blunder. Let’s take a look at the previous eight teams that didn’t make it to Worlds after C9 became the 9th team to do so.
paiN Gaming (PNG) from the CBLOL is team #65. The Spring champions will not be able to retain their title after a thrilling 5-game semifinal series against Rensga.
Since 2015, this legendary Brazilian club has competed in the CBLOL. They’ve finished second in the Playoffs twice and first in both the Regular Split and the Playoffs. After winning the IWCT, they represented their area in Worlds 2015 and MSI 2021.
Fun facts about this team: their botlaner is the well-known Draven Player brTT, and they were the first Latin American organization to establish a gaming home.
Furious Gaming (FG) from the LLA is team #66. La Calavera finished third in the Playoffs after a 1-3 defeat to Estral. This squad entered LAS (the precursor of the CLS) in 2015 after acquiring Lemongdogs Argentina.
Despite being first in the Regular Split twice, this argentinian squad has never won the Playoffs, despite four appearances in the finals (the most 2nd places in the league).
Bugi, their jungler, won the LJL Summer Playoffs in 2020. Josedeodo used to be a member of this squad.
-From the PCS, Machi Esports (MCX) is team #67. Machi finished fourth in the Playoffs and were eliminated from Worlds contention after losing 2-3 to J Team.
In the summer of 2015, this Taiwanese organization became a member of the LMS. They’ve enjoyed somewhat above-average performances since then, ranging from 3rd to 6th place.
Their greatest achievement occurred in 2020, when they won the Regular Season in the spring and finished second in the Playoffs, before winning Summer and qualifying for the 2020 World Championship.
-From the TCL, Beşiktaş Esports (BJK) is team #68. Beşiktaş e-Sports Club was the previous name. Following a 1-3 loss to GS, the TCL is now assured of a new first-time champion.
After joining the league in the winter of 2015, Beşiktaş won their first split and advanced to the MSI the following year. They came in second later in the summer. BJK, on the other hand, sold its TCL slot and instead competed in the Challenger series in 2017 and 2018.
Except for this split, they have only had poor performances since rejoining the TCL at the start of 2019.
-Team #69 (nice): LCL’s One Breath Gaming (OBL). After being reverse swept by UOL, this British team has now finished third in the Playoffs.
After buying the spot of the now-defunct M19, this club entered the league in the summer of 2020. OBL has had a very successful run throughout their three splits, placing third in all of their Playoffs and even second and first in the Regular Split.
-From the LEC, G2 Esports (G2) is team #70. G2 finished 4th in Playoffs after a 2-3 loss to long-time rivals Fnatic, and will miss Worlds for the first time since the team’s rebranding in 2016.
The European Kings, with eight domestic championships and two titles in a row, back to back, back to back, back to back, back to back, back to back, back to back, back to back, back to back, back to back, back MSI 2017 finalists and 2019 champions in the quickest international Bo5 in LoL history. The Korean Slayers, who were semifinalists and finals at Worlds in 2020 and 2019, will not be competing at Worlds this year.
Since Perkz left for NA and Rekkles took his position in G2, everyone anticipated the LEC giants to cruise through the league, believing no one could equal them. They were sorely mistaken. G2 finished third in the Spring and fourth in the Summer in 2021, probably their weakest year (at least they qualified for Worlds in 2018).
Some individuals, including myself, have grudges against others.
Despite this, it saddens me to watch guys like Rekkles, Caps, and Jankos not participate in Worlds. It’s simply difficult to comprehend. We’ll have to wait and watch what the team does in the summer. It’s strange to see such a loaded, high-ceiling squad fail, but it only goes to show how much the other LEC teams, such as Rogue and MAD, have grown over the years, as well as the strength of the new newcomers.
-CBLOL’s Vorax Liberty (VRX) is team #71. Previously known as Vorax, the “Liberty” was added as a result of their affiliation with the defunct “Havan Liberty Gaming.” Vorax are out of the Playoffs after losing 1-3 to the RED Canids in the semifinals.
Despite only being in the CBLOL for the past two splits, Vorax has a sizable fan base, owing to the team’s origins as the result of the merger of two major Brazilian organizations. They finished second in both the Regular Season and the Spring Playoffs in both the Spring and Summer.
TSM (TSMxD) from the LCS is team #72. Previously
, this organization is without a doubt the most successful in North America’s history. I’m sorry that I won’t be able to do justice to this team’s full history, but I’ll make sure to provide a link for those who want to learn more.
Seven championships, five second-place finishes, eight Worlds appearances, and two MSI appearances. One of League’s original clubs, and one that has remained prominent since their battle with
I can’t discuss TSM without mentioning Bjergsen, perhaps the best player the LCS has ever produced, who served as the team’s midlaner for six years and is currently the Head Coach. This article is about teams, as much as I’d want to speak about Sren.
Archenemies are archenemies in the true sense of the word.
(link ) has denied each other Worlds for the past four years, going 1-3 in that regard, with TSM getting the short end of the stick this year, falling 2-3 in a series that was clearly theirs to lose.
TSM finish 4th in Playoffs despite winning the Regular Split and will go unbeaten in Worlds for the third year in a row. Jokes aside, it hurts me to watch this team allegedly spend $6 million on SwordArt and still come up short, but that’s League: some have to suffer in order for others to succeed.
Many leagues are nearing their finals weekend, and we may only receive 3 or 4 more updates before the chart is completely completed, with just 21 teams remaining, 15 excluding the VCS. Thank you for staying with me till the next article!
