T1 LCK and Worlds 2023

With Worlds 2023 well underway, here are all the teams that qualified for the event, as well as those who have since been eliminated from contention.

Worlds 2023 marks the return of LoL’s biggest competition to South Korea for the first time since 2018, when Invictus Gaming won the title over Fnatic in dominant fashion. The tournament will take place between October 10 and November 19 across four locations in Seoul and Busan.

Worlds 2023 features 22 teams from nine regions, with the LPL and the LCK being the only regions with a guaranteed four-strong contingent. Riot Games has introduced a number of changes to the format, most notably replacing the round-robin group stage with a Swiss stage.

Format changes like these have allowed for some teams to have easier paths than others to the later stages of the tournament, something that has allowed NRG to qualify to Quarterfinals over G2. That said, their win over G2 was decisive enough that it hasn’t been disputed that they deserve their spot.

That said, NRG weren’t able to show up in the quarterfinals. Weibo Gaming shut them out in decisive fashion.

Below is a full list of teams that qualified for Worlds 2023, with the teams who have since been knocked out being struck through upon elimination.
