The League of Legends World Championships is only two weeks away from the start.

As a result, players and teams worldwide are preparing to show up in the best possible shape. The Worlds trophy is the biggest that any team or organization can ever hope for within League of Legends.

Therefore, putting in 100% of the effort is mandatory. The stakes are very high, and the scope for making mistakes is almost zero. However, there are a few teams that have the upper hand ahead of others. In other words, there are a few favorites, a few underdogs, and a few average teams in the eyes of the fans.

Therefore, it is vital to look into the rankings of these teams and how they stand in terms of overall potential in relation to the League of Legends World Championships.

League of Legends Worlds 2021 teams: Ranked from strongest to weakest

It is important to understand that no team is bad within these rankings when playing League of Legends. However, some of them are inherently stronger compared to others. Some had it easy within their regions, while others had to go through a lot to earn a place.

As a result, some of them are better equipped for the challenge and have a higher chance of clinching the trophy in the end. There will be five tiers in total. Namely, S, A, B, C, and D. S denotes the strongest teams while D denotes the weakest.

The strongest League of Legends teams have a higher chance of making it to the end, while the weakest teams will probably go home from the group stage itself.
