The grand finals at MSI 2019 were going to see a new region come out on top at an international League of Legends event, after a series of upsets from Team Liquid and G2 Esports in the semi-finals lead to the first ever North American vs European final.
G2 Esports came out hungry and managed to sweep Team Liquid 3-0 in dominant fashion, off the back of an incredible performance from the tournament’s MVP, Rasmus 'Caps' Winther.
This was the moment many European fans watching had been waiting for, an international major victory at one of the most competitive events in League of Legends history and Europe’s first ever MSI champions.
It appears as if there is no bigger fan of European League of Legends than the LEC Host herself, Sjokz, as she posted an emotional video of herself celebrating the win crying with tears of joy for G2 Esports.
Sjokz was working as part of the on-air talent team for Riot Games in Taipei and witnessed the European’s victory live, only managing to say “They did it,” during her celebration, shortly before interviewing Caps and Perks for the broadcast.
I LOVE YOU SJOKZ

Sjokz’ emotional celebration received a lot of support from fellow League of Legends figures including G2 Esports CEO, Carlos “ocelote” Rodriguez, who replied, “I LOVE YOU SJOKZ.”
G2 Esports and Sjokz will return to the LEC for some more League of Legends during the Summer Split on June 7, following a short break after the Mid-Season Invitational 2019 event.
