Teams and Players LoL Worlds 2017

The League of Legends World Championship 2017 is just around the corner by now and it’s time to take a look at the teams and players that are going to perform at the LoL Worlds 2017. As a matter of fact, it may be too soon to already know the teams that qualify for Worlds, the LCS Summer Split 2017 is still in progress as are the leagues of all other regions and it we are still waiting for the LCS 2017 Summer Playoffs to start. But not only the winner of the playoffs qualify for group stage but also the teams with the most Championship Points and teams based on the Regional Qualifiers. Due to this, there are already some teams that are very likely to qualify for Group Stage of the LoL Worlds 2017, to say the least. We already wrote about the Qualification including Championship Point standings and details about regional tournaments. It will be interesting to see how the teams from Europe, North America and China will do in comparison to South Korea and if they will get dominated once again. Also the frightening tendency of Western teams losing at international events is hopefully coming to an end. At the moment everything seems like SK Telecom T1 is going to become World Champion for another time, even though they have suffered a few setbacks in Summer Split recently. There are already Betting Odds for the Outright Winner of the 2017 League of Legends World Championship. You find more about Betting Odds for the LoL Worlds 2017 here.

Overview: Qualified Teams | LoL Worlds 2017

The year’s tournament will consist of 24 teams instead of 16 as in the last years. Half of them start at the Play-In-Stage and only 4 will qualify for the Group Stage, where the other half of the teams is already waiting. This means that there will be 16 contestants at the Group Stage. Read more about the changed format for LoL Worlds 2017 here.

The Teams in Detail | LoL Worlds 2017

LoL Worlds 2017 Teams of Europe (EU LCS 2017)

G2 Esports MSI 2017 Team Logo G2 Esports (Group C)

After a Summer Split with shaky performances, G2 Esports is now the first team from Europe to qualify for the LoL World Cup. By eliminating the Unicorns of Love on Fnatic in the playoffs, G2 can no longer be overtaken by anyone in terms of championship points even if they don’t become EU LCS Champion. Whether the team around PerkZ and Co. manage to play on the same level as at the MSI 2017 or whether it is the next international flop appearance – no one knows yet.

  • Support: Alfonso “mithy” Rodríguez
  • Substitute: Michael Tuan “Hoang” Hoang

Team-Misfits-EU-LCS-2017-Logo Misfits (Group D)

A big surprise is definitely the participation of the Misfits in the Group Stage of League of Legends Worlds 2017. After a second place in the Spring Split and a third place in Group A of the EU LCS 2017 Summer Split, the team, starting in the quarterfinals, managed to reach the final. On their way not only did they eliminate Unicorns of Love but also Fnatic. Until then, Fnatic was considered favorite for playoff victory by all experts. As European teams failed to convince at Worlds last year (except for H2k), it will be interesting to see Misfits play internationally. It was only since Spring Split 2017 that the team played in the EU LCS and therefore made a memorable success with the qualification for LoL World Championship. We keep our fingers crossed for them as well as for the other European teams.

Team Logo Fnatic EU LCS 2017 Fnatic (Group B)

After an outstanding Summer Split, Fnatic had to bother about entering the LoL WM 2017 Play-In Stage, as the semi-finals of the Summer Playoffs were at first the final stage. But in the Regional Qualifiers, the team around Star-ADC Rekcles showed why they still has the claim to be King of Europe. H2K Gaming, last year’s semi-finalist of the LoL Worlds, had no chance at all in the 3-0 defeat of Fnatic in the final of the Regional Qualifiers. Since it wasn’t enough for the title as LCS Champion, the motivation to play at the LoL World Championship will be even greater.

LoL Worlds 2017 Teams of North America (NA LCS 2017)

Team-TSM-NA-LCS-2017-Logo Team SoloMid (Group D)

TSM is already qualified for LoL World Championship as a semi-finalist of the LCS Summer Playoffs 2017 because of the achieved championship points. Due to the elimination of Cloud9 in the quarter-finals, none of the remaining teams can reach the same CP number – Immortals has 0 points after the Spring Split and Team Dignitas has 10 points. Team SoloMid did not manage to get past group stage in last year’s LoL Worlds. The iconic North American team is ready for revenge though. By winning the Rift Rivals 2017 TSM also showed that they are currently higher rated than the European teams. The stars of the line-up are without a doubt Bjergsen and Doublelift.

Team-Immortals-LoL-WM-2017-Logo Immortals (Group B)

Now that the Immortals have been in the playoffs of the NA LCS for four times in a row, they finally managed to qualify for LoL Worlds 2017. By reaching the finals of the Summer Playoffs, Immortals are already safe in the Group Stage. Especially in the Summer Split, the team was able to convince and finish the regular season tied with TSM. The pressure of the fans on the North American teams is great, because the elimination of all participants in the Group Stage last yeas was a disgrace for the region. A big name in Immortals roster is Jungler Xmithie, who already leads his third team to LoL World Championship 2017.

  • Support: Kim “Olleh” Joo-sung
  • Substitute: Andy “Chorong” Hoang

 Cloud9 (Group A)

In a thrilling final of the Regional Qualifiers, Cloud9 was able to secure the last seed of the NA LCS for the LoL World Championship, just like in the previous year. However, unlike the other two North American teams, C9 must start in the Play-In Stage and hope to qualify as one of four teams for the Group Stage. At LoL Worlds 2016, however, it was enough for a place in the quarter-finals, making Cloud9 the best team of the disappointing North American region.

LoL Worlds 2017 Teams of South Korea (LCK 2017)

League of Legends Longhzu Gaming Logo LoL Worlds Longzhu (Group B)

Against all expectations the # 1 seed participant from South Korea is not SK Telecom but Longzhu Gaming. No one would have expected such an outstanding result before the LCK Summer Split, but Toplaner Khan and Midlaner Bdd were the stars of the season. After reaching the first place in the Regular Split, Longzhu was already in the final and only SKT was able to challenge them in the playoffs. Every coach, analyst, bookmaker and most fans of the LCK were sure that the reigning world champion SK Telecom would grab the title again, but with impressive matches, Longzhu earned a more than deserved a 3: 1 victory over to the LCK Champion 2017. No matter which team in the Group Stage must face Longzhu, after this performance everyone should have respect.

  • Substitute: Kim “Rascal” Kwang-hee

SK Telecom T1 MSI 2017 Team Logo SK Telecom T1 (Group A)

Even though parts of the Spring Split were displeasing for the reigning world champion, the team fought its way back to the top of Korea. In the Summer Playoffs, all the opponents have been eliminated and SKT qualified for the final again. By winning the Spring Playoffs, the number of Championship Points is enough to qualify directly for the LoL World Cup in the event of a defeat. The chances for a new tournament victory of the record world champion are very good, for the bookies only the other teams of the LCK are a serious competition.

  • Substitute: Kang “Blank” Sun-gu

League of Legends Samsung Galaxy Logo LoL Worlds Samsung Galaxy (Group C)

As in the previous year, the South Korean regional qualifiers final was KT Rolster vs. Samsung Galaxy – and Samsung is once again the third LCK team to qualify for LoL Worlds. At the LoL WM 2016 they reached the 2nd place, only SK Telecom T1 was better. A similar result would be a big surprise and a huge success for Samsung Galaxy, because everyone is already expecting a final Longzhu vs. But SSG is definitely one of the top 5 teams in the world and should not be underestimated.

LoL Worlds 2017 Teams of China (LPL 2017)

League of Legends EDward Gaming Logo LoL Worlds EDward Gaming (Group A)

The Chinese team EDward Gaming has already got a ticket to the LoL Worlds 2017 after reaching the LPL Summer Playoff Finals. Last year, EDG was considered as a favorite for the world championship title, but then showed disappointing performances. In the Summer Split 2017 of the LPL, however, they got first place in Group A, even above Team WE.

League of Legends Royal Never Give Up Logo LoL Worlds Royal Never Give Up (Group C)

After reaching the Playoff Finals, the first participant from China is Royal Never Give Up. In the previous year, RNG came to the quarter-finals, but got knocked out by SK Telecom T1. After South Korea, China is generally considered to be the second strongest region in the League of Legends scene, and Royal Never Give Up is a close favorite for the world championship title. In the semi-final of the LPL Playoffs, RNG knocked out the winner of the Spring Playoffs, Team World Elite. Team WE must therefore strive in the Regional Qualifiers to get a seed for Worlds.

Team World Elite only made it to 4th place in the Summer Split of the LPL, but was able to qualify for the LoL Worlds 2017 through the Regional Qualifiers in China. As #3 seed, however, Team WE has to start in the Play-In Stage, but the chances of advancing to the Worlds Group Stage are very good.

LoL Worlds 2017 Teams of Taiwan/Hong Kong/Macao (LMS 2017)

Team Flash Wovles Logo - LoL Worlds Flash Wolves (Group D)

After winning the Spring Split finals against their ancient rivals ahq e-Sports Club and finishing first in the regular Summer Split season 2017 the Flash Wolves from Taiwan are the first team who qualified for this year’s League of Legends World Championship – either as first or second seed. The team established a reputation as the South Korean slayers in the past and are dreaded as great rivals all over the world. Especially midlaner Maple and jungler Karsa are well-known veterans with an international reputation.

Team ahq e Sports Club Logo - LoL Worlds ahq e-Sports Club (Group A)

Besides the Flash Wolves, ahq e-Sports Club also managed to qualify for the LoL World Cup 2017 prematurely. After the second place in the Spring Playoffs and the final at the Summer Playoffs, ahq can either qualify for #1 seed with the victory of the playoffs or #2 seed with most championship points. The team from Taiwan took part in the LoL World Championship last year already but failed in the group stage after a tiebreaker against EDward Gaming. H2K became a group winner. With some luck this year, it could be enough to go up to the K.o.-Stage.

The trio of the LMS region is completed by HK Attitude. Hong Kong’s oldest professional E-Sport team hadn’t managed to qualify for the Summer Playoffs, but still managed to beat Raise Gaming in the Regional Qualifiers and is now allowed to participate in a LoL World Championship for the first time.

Wildcard Teams of the LoL World Championship 2017

Teams of South East Asia (GPL 2017)

League of Legends GIGABYTE Marines Logo LoL Worlds GIGABYTE Marines (Group B)

In the MSI 2017, the GIGABYTE Marines represented the Wildcard regions in the Group Stage, now they have made it to the Group Stage of the LoL Worlds after reaching the final in the GPL playoffs. Jungler Levi and Midlaner Optimus are well known to most fans of the LoL scene. Among other things, they took part in the All-Star tournament in 2016 and fought side by side with the European players for Team Ice. Among the teams of the former wild-card regions, GAM probably have the best chances to get into the Knockout Stage.

Young Generation GPL Logo Young Generation

The second team of the GPL is a Vietnamese team too. Although Young Generation could not qualify for the Spring Split in Southeast Asia, they immediately made it into the final of the Summer Playoffs. This means that the team, which consists only of players from Vietnam, is qualified for the Play-In Stage of the LoL Worlds 2017. However, participation in the Group Stage is very unlikely.

Team of Brazil (CBLOL 2017)

League of Legends Team oNe eSports Logo LoL Worlds Team oNe eSports

Team oNe eSports is exactly what makes this LoL World Championships so interesting: new, motivated teams with (from our perspective) unknown players who give us an impression of the playing styles of other regions. Team onE is Brazil pure, not a single imported player is in the roster. This is very typical for Brazil, however, and for example INTZ e-Sports, a participant in last year’s Wildcard Qualifiers, only relies on local players too. It is very unlikely that Team oNe will get past the Play-In Stage, e-Sport in South America is not yet that advanced compared to North America. But it will be exciting to watch Team oNe in games against other regions.

Team of CIS (LCL 2017)

League of Legends Gambit Esports Logo LoL Worlds Gambit.CIS

Long-time fans of the professional League of Legends scene might have been surprised when they heard that Gambit Gaming will participate in the 2017 LoL Worlds. First of all, this is not the team from the EU LCS, but a team of the organization in the Russian league. Nevertheless, it is the names that make you nostalgic. Diamondprox and Edwards are two players on the team who have been in Gambit from 2013 to 2015. PvPStejos and Kira are no strangers to the scene either. The two of them made it to the last eight in last year’s LoL World Championships with Albus Nox Luna. Gambit.CIS is arguably the best team in the Wildcard Regions, and has the best chances of advancing to the Group Stage.

League of Legends Dire Wolves Logo LoL Worlds Dire Wolves

In reality, the genus of the Dire Wolves has been extinct for 10,000 years, but in the LoL world they didn’t come to life until 2014. The team from Oceania, one of the weaker E-Sport regions, took part in the Mid-Season Invitational this year and even won two games. For the group stage of the LoL Worlds 2017, however, the competition is too strong for them to advance to Group Stage.

Teams of South America North (LLN 2017)

League of Legends Lyons Gaming Logo LoL Worlds Lyon Gaming

Lyon Gaming is an absolute top team in South America and has a big fanbase. However, the team was not lucky enough to qualify for international tournaments in the past: while they took part in the MSI 2017 Play-In Stage, they were only second of their group and did not make it past Round One. In 2016 Lyon did not manage to qualify for Group Stage through the Wildcard Qualifying Tournaments before the MSI and LoL Worlds. Also this year, the chances of entering the Group Stage are very low.

Kaos Latin Gamer League of Legends Logo Kaos Latin Gamers

The CLS team has qualified through the victory of the Closing Playoffs for the Play-In Stage of LoL Worlds 2017. The team consists only of South American players, so the international comparison is particularly interesting. The Kaos Latin Gamers have been active since 2013, but they never went beyond the International Wildcard Tournament and are experiencing the stage of the LoL Worlds for the first time.

League of Legends Rampage Logo LoL Worlds Rampage

The Japanese team Rampage is also looking forward to participating in the Play-In stage of the LoL World Cup 2017. The play-in stage of the MSI 2017 was the first international tournament in which the team, founded in 2012, was allowed to participate. All players of the squad started their career in Japan and are not known for their wealth of experience, so qualifying for the Group Stage is rather unlikely.

1907 Fenerbahçe League of Legends Logo 1907 Fenerbahce (Group C)

Surprisingly, the Turkish Worlds participant this year is not SuperMassive or Dark Passage but 1907 Fenerbahce. This is the first time a League of Legends team,  which is connected to a football club, in particular Fenerbahce Istanbul, will play at the LoL World Championship. Schalke 04, PSG etc. still dream of this moment. With Move and Frozen, Fenenbahce brought two well-known Koreans into the team. Jungler Move was among other teams already active for the Unicorns of Love, Midlaner Frozen spent 2016 at Longhzu in the LCK. After the 3: 0 success in the final of the TCL Summer Playoffs against SuperMassive, one can be curious how the team perform internationally. The Turkish league has already attracted attention in the past years with its own unique style.
