The Group Stages at League of Legends Worlds 2022 have officially come to an end. Over the last few days, there have been several exciting games with moments of both triumph and heartbreak.
Nevertheless, it is now time to move forward into the Quarterfinals Stage where the real tournament begins. As such, in this article, a list of all the qualified teams have been mentioned alongside the draw results and other minor details.
In terms of quality, this year's Quarterfinals Stage looks absolutely stacked. Every qualified team has the potential to lift the trophy at the very end, which means that fans will get to witness some exciting games in the upcoming week.
Full details about the Quarterfinals Stage at League of Legends Worlds 2022
Before moving any further, it is important to provide the list of teams that have qualified for the Quarterfinals Stage at League of Legends Worlds 2022. The teams are as follows:
- T1 (LCK, South Korea)
- EDG (LPL, China)
- JDG (LPL China)
- DWG KIA (LCK, South Korea)
- Rogue (LEC, Europe)
- DRX (LCK, South Korea)
- Gen.G (LCK, South Korea)
- RNG (LPL, China)
It is clear that the Quarterfinals Stage at Worlds 2022 is dominated by Chinese and South Korean teams. Rogue is the only European team that somehow managed to qualify past Group C as Top Esports (LPL second seed) sort of imploded within the same group.
Unfortunately, all of the western teams performed poorly and were unable to qualify for the next stage. League of Legends teams such as G2 Esports and Evil Geniuses disappointed the entire western audience and several fans are quite sad and annoyed about it right now.
Being a tournament where only the best survive, the western teams were unable to make the cut. Nevertheless, those who did qualify will be moving forward as the battle for the Semifinals begins shortly after.
In any case, fans will be interested to learn about how the teams have matched up against each other for the Quarterfinals Stage at League of Legends Worlds 2022. The draw for the upcoming stage was conducted right after the final Group Stage game and this has been provided below:
- JDG vs Rogue
- T1 vs RNG
- Gen.G vs DWG KIA
- DRX vs EDG
Looking at the matchups, fans can certainly expect a lot of action, with games #2, #3, and #4 looking especially exciting. Although the first game may likely end up in JDG's favor, anything can happen in the next three games.
Since most of these teams are on equal grounds in terms of skill, it is impossible to predict who will come out on top. Ultimately, it will come down to who spends more time assessing their opponents and preparing better.
Unfortunately, the exact dates and schedules have not been provided by Riot Games yet, but it is known that the Quarterfinals Stage will take place between October 20 and 23. Hopefully, a detailed match schedule will be released in the upcoming days.
Lastly, it is important to mention that the Quarterfinals Stage at League of Legends Worlds 2022 will also be held at the Hulu Theater in Madison Square Garden, New York City, the same venue as the Group Stages. The upcoming matches will be broadcast live on the official Twitch channel of Riot Games.
