After one of the most lopsided series of the 2023 League of Legends Mid-Season Invitational, Gen.G will be moving forward to the next round of the tournament’s lower bracket over Cloud9. This victory also represents the fall of the final Western representative in London, marking yet another disappointing performance from the LCS and LEC at an international event.
Across the entire month, both regions played a combined 20 games against the LCK and LPL, and they only managed to win three combined games. The first win for the West came during the play-in stage when Golden Guardians won a game against Bilibili Gaming in their 2-1 series loss. The two other instances came from G2 Esports, who won games against Gen.G and BLG in the bracket stage.
