Each year, hundreds of professional League of Legends players compete in a dozen leagues across the world. And since the game’s professional scene is splintered into these regional leagues, it makes it difficult for the best players from their respective regions to compete with each other on a consistent basis.
At the World Championship, though, the strongest players from each corner of the globe congregate, treating fans to memoble moments and “instant classic” games. Perhaps it’s the rity of matches played between some of League’s biggest stars that makes Worlds so intriguing in the first place. It’s not often the greatest players in the world are given the chance to compete face-to-face.
