Should Riot Games reserve a spot at Worlds for the MSI champion of the same year?
With a game that is constantly evolving both inside and outside like League of Legends It is understandable that the tournament system has added new points. For example, in recent years, the regional leagues of League of Legends have begun to apply the win-lose bracket to the playoffs and show its correctness. It’s not G2 Esports couldn’t have won the spectacular 2022 LEC Spring if the knockout format was applied.
G2 Esports is the clearest proof that the win-lose bracket is good for professional League of Legends.
And then recently, the analyst of the LEC – Caedrel gave another opinion that caused great controversy. According to Caedrel, the MSI champion should be guaranteed a spot at Worlds that same year. Even after Caedrel’s Tweet was posted, the “top” characters of G2 Esports were good. T1 all agree with this view. However, there are also many people who are against it when MSI and Worlds take place at two different times, so it is not possible to make such a special distinction.
Caedrel: “The MSI champion should be guaranteed a spot at Worlds in the same year. Dare you to change my mind”
T1 CEO – Joe Marsh: “Agreed, but to make sure they don’t play badly in the Summer Split, if the MSI champion also wins the Summer Split, they’ll be seeded 1 in Group A and can choose against them. players (except for teams from the same region) in the group stage”
G2 CEO – Ocelote: “Agreed completely, the team that won the spring tournament should be given the same privilege”
Hupu Forum from China: “Objection. Being able to go to MSI means that the team is strong in spring and will get accumulated points for that. Winning MSI means you do well on patch 12.8. Meanwhile The summer tournament is played in a completely different version. You have to be strong in the summer to go to Worlds.”
In the history of League of Legends, there has never been a MSI champion who missed out on Worlds in the same year. Basically, when you’re strong enough to win a major tournament like MSI, having a ticket to Worlds is within reach. However, it doesn’t mean that the MSI champion should get a free ride to Worlds. Having to try to play well in the summer season will give the MSI champion team more motivation to strive to keep a place they deserve.
MSI 2021 Champion – RNG also has to work hard to get a ticket to Worlds 2021
Remember that this special position has happened many times in other Esports titles and it only brings bad consequences. At CS:GO, there was a time when the team was in the top 8 Major first, the team will have the “Legends” slot and automatically appear in the next Major group stage. Or like in DOTA 2, there was a time when the TI champion was sure to be invited to the group stage at next year’s TI no matter how the lineup changed or how the performance.
The Newbee at TI5 is a testament to how wrong the positional specials can be. Basically, the TI4 champion kept only 2 members of the championship team, performed badly in 2015 and ended up finishing last in the TI5 group stage.
As a result, many teams lose their motivation to compete when their major league positions have been secured and their skills go down, leading to a decline in the quality of the league as well. And then Valve itself has been gradually removing these “special” mechanisms in CS: GO and DOTA 2 recently. Therefore, there is no reason why Riot “reverses” and applies this “special”.
