League of Legends Worlds 2022: DRX complete the miracle run and take down T1

LoL Worlds 2022Colin Young-Wolff/Riot Games

The League of Legends 2022 World Championship has come to a close, with LCK fourth seed DRX making a miracle run from Play-Ins all the way to taking a world title.

  • DRX have had a massive resurgence through Worlds 2022. They took down EDG, the defending world champions, they took down GenG, and now they’ve taken down T1 to win the world title
  • What could have been Deft’s very last games of competitive League of Legends have ended with the greatest success he could have ever imagined. If this was his last dance, it’s one people will remember
  • Faker had the opportunity to take his 4th world title, and he fell just short

Worlds 2022 is the single biggest event in the League of Legends calendar, and it has finally concluded with DRX being crowned the world champions.

Lee ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok’s T1 obviously headlined the act, with T1 dominating the competition every step of the way until it mattered most.

LCK fourth seed DRX climbed their way to Finals all the way from Play-Ins, something no team in League of Legends’ competitive history has done. With Kim ‘Zeka’ Geon-woo and Kim ‘Deft’ Hyuk-kyu both having exceptional showings through every stage of Worlds 2022, completed their miracle run and ripped the 2022 world title out of Faker and the rest of T1’s hands.

LoL Worlds 2022: All qualified teams

Riot Games
2021 World Champions EDG

Twenty-four teams from 11 regions across the world battled it out at Worlds 2022. With the LCL unable to send a representative to the tournament this year, their seed was given to the LEC — making it the only major region to have two representatives in the Play-In stage.

The top 12 qualifying teams at the tournament advanced straight to the group stage. The remaining 12 battled their way through the Play-In stage for a chance to snatch one of the four group stage spots.
