Is the European dream still alive? The region’s hopes and aspitions at Worlds 2022

When the 2022 League of Legends World Championship starts in just a few hours, European fans will finally get to see some of their best teams compete on the biggest stage. After an eventful year, and an even more lively Summer Split, the four teams representing Europe at Worlds were solidified: Rogue, G2 Esports, Fnatic, and MAD Lions.  

The Summer Split demonstted how each LEC team had a shot at the title, with close games and an ever-shifting leaderboard. But the last few matches of the playoffs drew a line between the teams who will have to climb from the Worlds play-in stage and the ones that might end a match with a clear 3-0.
