The Play-ins at Worlds 2017 concluded today with Team WE’s utter domination over Young Generation. We are now heading into the group stage, and the victors of the play-in stage have been sorted into their groups.
The Groups inside Group Stage for World championship 2017.
The NA LCS’ Cloud9 will join reigning world champions SK Telecom T1, EDward Gaming, and ahq e-Sports Club in Group A—potentially the most difficult group in the tournament. Cloud9 was rivaled only by Team WE as the most dominant team in the play-in stage. Unfortunately for them, they’ll have to keep improving just as rapidly if they hope to even stand a chance against this group of titans.
The EU LCS’ Fnatic has been paired with LCK Summer Split champions and current favorites to win Longzhu Gaming, Immortals, and the GIGABYTE Marines in Group B.
The TCL’s 1907 Fenerbahçe Espor has joined Group C alongside G2 Esports, Royal Never Give Up, and Samsung Galaxy.
Finally, Team WE will compete against the Flash Wolves, Misfits, and the NA LCS’ TSM in Group D.
The long-awaited group stage will kick off on Oct. 5 at 3am ET. The first half of Groups will conclude on Oct. 8.
