Who Will Be the 2022 LoL Worlds Champion?

The League of Legends Worlds Championship is one - if not the most awaited event of the league. It brings together the best teams from all over the world to compete for the “World Champion” title. 

The tournament is hosted by non-other than the developer, Riot Games. It is the biggest event in the LoL Esports competitive calendar. 

This year’s battle to the finals has been thrilling and exciting, making us cheer on a lot of different teams because of how different each of their playing styles is and how each of them handles teamwork in-game.

If you don’t know who to support yet, or you are just late on the hype, here are the 4 teams that made it to the 2022 Worlds Championship semi-finals.

1. SKT T1

Over the past few years, the T1 LoL team has seen tremendous success. 

Starting in 2013, the team won the Season 3 World Championship, becoming the first Korean team to do so. 

They followed this up with a victory at the IEM World Championship in 2014. In 2015, T1 took first place at both the Mid-Season Invitational and the World Championship, cementing their status as the best team in the world. 

Since then, T1 has continued to perform at a high level, winning multiple domestic and international tournaments. Most recently, T1 took first place at the 2020 League of Legends World Championship, defeating Suning in the finals. 

This victory marks T1's third World Championship title, solidifying their legacy as one of the greatest LoL teams of all time. Looking to the future, T1 looks poised to continue its dominance of the LoL scene. 

With their proven track record of success, there is no reason to doubt that T1 gained their spot as a semi-finalist in the 2022 championship. In this year’s final, all its team members, such as the ever-so-famous Faker and Gumayusi, can show the world what they can do and have the chance to become "World Champions" once again.

2. JDG Intel Esports Club

JDG Esports Club is one of the most successful clubs in the world of competitive League of Legends, and it is also one of the most successful esports clubs in China. Founded in 2013, the club has grown rapidly and now has over 100 members.

The club has been incredibly successful in recent years, winning multiple championships and tournaments. The club is currently the reigning champion of the Chinese League of Legends Pro League (LPL) and is one of the favorites to win the World Championship this year. With a strong team and a proven track record of success, JDG Intel Esports Club is poised to continue its dominance in the world of esports.

JDG is known for its exceptional teamwork and strategic play, which has led them to victory time and time again. 

The JDG Intel Esports Club is a force to be reckoned with, and they show no signs of slowing down anytime soon as they will be facing T1 in the semi-finals in their battle to finals to be crowned as the 2022 Worlds Champions.

3. DRX

The DRX organization has been a driving force in the e-Sports industry for years. They have been a part of some of the world's biggest tournaments, and their team has always been a top contender. 

This year, they took things to a whole new level. They were able to show the world how much they have progressed as professional gamers in the scene of League of Legends. 

The DRX LoL team has had a fantastic year so far, and they don't seem to be slowing down anytime soon. After coming in first place at the 2018 LoL World Championship, they took home another first-place finish at the 2019 Mid-Season Invitational. Their recent success can be attributed to their strong team play and excellent strategic decisions.

In particular, their bot lane duo of Deft and Teddy have been on fire, consistently carrying their team to victory. In an earlier interview with Deft and Pyosik after their win against EDG, Deft was seen tearing up as he was so proud of what they have become whether or not they win the world championship.

With another strong showing at the recent LCK Summer Split, it's safe to say that DRX is one of the best teams in the world right now. They have repeatedly proved that they are a force to be reckoned with and that they don't seem to be slowing down anytime soon.

4. Gen.G

It's been a long road to the top for Gen.G, but they've finally made it.

After years of toiling away in the lower tiers of the Korean esports scene, Gen.G has finally reached the pinnacle of success as they became champions of League of Legends Worlds, having defeated T1 in the final of the 2018 World Championship. 

This is a remarkable achievement for a team that has only been in existence for two years. Formed in 2016, Gen.G is the result of a merger between two of Korea's leading esports organizations: KSV Esports and Samsung Galaxy. The team's success is built on a solid foundation of Korean talent. 

The core of the roster is made up of veterans of the Korean scene such as Kang "Ambition" Chan-Yong, Lee "CuVee" Seong-jin, and Park "Ruler" Jae-hyuk. These players have been supplemented by some of the best up-and-coming talents in the country, such as Jo "CoreJJ" Yong-in and Gwak "Bdd" Bo-Seong.

Gen.G are always determined to make it count. And they did just that, thanks in large part to their star player, Ruler. He was simply unstoppable in the finals, and his performance was instrumental in helping Gen.G to victory.

This is a team that has made history, and they will always be remembered and loved by their fans as they have a chance to get into the finals once again and claim their victory.


All of these teams have shown what they got to make it to the top, they are not only showing their fans that they have what it takes, but they are also influencing a lot of professional coaches, players, and casual gamers that progress is always important and how amazing it is to do what you truly love.

The Semi-Finals will begin on Sunday, October 30, as T1 battles against JDG for a spot in the Finals.
