With the presence of a famous band and the attraction of the final night, many fans believe that the match between T1 and WBG will create a new record for League of Legends.
In the latest match day of Worlds 2023, LCK – T1 representatives won 3-1 against JDG to advance to the finals.
In this match, many LPL fans thought that JDG did not play at his best and had quite poor performances compared to the reigning MSI and LPL champions. On the other hand, it cannot be denied that T1 had impressive performances with many superstar moments.
For the same reason, the semi-final match T1 vs JDG reached 4,308,901 concurrent viewers (excluding China) according to Esports Chart.
But as Riot Games revealed in the recent press conference, the match between T1 and JDG attracted more than 33 million viewers at the same time around the world.
With those parameters, many international League of Legends fans believe that the final match between T1 and WBG could reach 50 million viewers at the same time or higher. Because in addition to the “view-attracting factors” such as T1 and the final match, WBG and TheShy,… the final night of Worlds 2023 also has a performance by NewJeans – the music group performing the theme song of this year’s Worlds, GODS.
Besides, even without counting the number of viewers from China, many fans expect and predict that the match between T1 and JDG will create a new record for viewership in League of Legends history.
