As we all know, at the World Championships, each region will only have a certain number of participating teams. This number will be based on that region’s performance in international League of Legends tournaments organized by Riot Games. For example, the LPL and LCK regions will have up to 4 places to participate in Worlds because their representatives are usually Worlds champions.
For the Vietnam – VCS region, each Worlds will have 2 slots to attend the tournament. Specifically, the winning team of VCS Summer will go directly to the Group Stage and the runners-up will play from the Play-In Round.
However, this may change in the 2023 season when it is confirmed that the TCL region will be dissolved in the near future. This means that a Worlds slot from the Play-In Round is open and will be decided by Riot Games.
“According to our sources, the TCL tournament will not have a place at Worlds from the 2023 season. This region will also be dissolved and the participating teams will have to move to compete in the ERL (2nd division league). of the European region) from 2023” – TCL region’s Esporin page.
With the above information, VCS fans have the right to hope for more Worlds slots for Vietnamese teams. In this season, SGB or GAM both left a good impression in terms of expertise, so the addition of VCS representatives will help international tournaments become more attractive. Hopefully, Riot will have reasonable solutions to this problem to move towards a successful 2023 season.
