How do the LPL Qualifiers for LoL Worlds work?

The first stage will pit the Spring Champion against the Summer Champion in a best of three match. The winner will then be named as the first team to qualify for Worlds. As Edward Gaming won both Splits there are automatically qualified for the World Championship 2014.

The second stage of the tournament will still pit teams from the Spring split against the teams from the Summer split. This stage will have a 4 team double elimination bracket wherein the winner of the winner’s bracket will qualify as the second team and the winner of the loser’s bracket will qualify as the third team to join Worlds. As of now, there are four teams that have qualified for the tournament and they are OMG, Star Horn Royal Club, LGD, and Invictus Gaming. All games will be played on a best of three match.

In order to find out which seed the teams will play, there is a seeding order for the top three teams. Since Edward Gaming has won both Spring and Summer split, they became the first team to officially qualify at Worlds and will then be placed at the winner’s bracket. The winner of the winner’s bracket will be the first seed while the loser will be the second seed. The winner of the loser’s bracket will be the third seed.

During the first round, OMG will fight against IG while Star Horn Royal Club will be matched against LGD. In this current match up, it is most likely that OMG will reign supreme over IG as they have dominated the likes of LGD and Star Horn Royal Club in the LPL Summer Playoffs but fell to Edward Gaming. Meanwhile, Star Horn Royal Club’s acquisition of two Korean star players with Insec as the main acquisition, they aim to destroy LGD once more. As a result, it will be down to Star Horn Royal Club, IG, and OMG to take the second and third spot with Star Horn Royal Club and OMG taking them respectively.
