League of Legends Season 4 World Championship: Introduction and Group A Breakdown

Posted by Jub Jub on September 11, 2014 at 7:10 PM

 

In only a few days, the League of Legends World Championship will officially kick off! This time, Worlds (as it is known in the League of Legends community), will have matches in Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan. After last year, Riot Games has completely overhauled the way the Championship works. This year, the 16 teams that qualified will battle it out, in four different groups in the Group Stage of the tournament, with Groups A and B playing in Taiwan, while Groups C and D playing in Singapore. From there, the quarter, semi, and finals matches will take place in Korea!

Riot Games divided the Groups based off of region (the League they played in) and seed (the place they finished in the Worlds Qualifiers).

In Group A, the four teams competing are: Edward Gaming, the number one LPL (Chinese) team; Samgsung Galaxy White, the number two OGN (Korean) team; AHQ, the number two GPL (Taiwan, Hong Kong, Phillippines, Thailand, Indonesia and Singapore) team; and Dark Passage, the winners of the International Wildcard tournament (who hail from Turkey).

Group A has some tough Asian teams in the mix, with Edward Gaming dominating in China and not even losing a match on their way to Worlds. Surprisingly to some, they are not even front-runners in their own Group after their total dominance in China.

Samsung Galaxy White finished 2nd in the Korean league, losing only against their sister-team Samsung Galaxy Blue. The Koreans are the most feared League of Legends players in the world, due to their communication, mechanical skills, and knowledge of the game, and many experts are already pinning Samsung Galaxy White as winners of this group.

AHQ e-Sports are a Taiwanese team with a knack for second place, having finished 2nd overall in the GPL twice, and only winning it once. However, they are not to be taken lightly, and have proven themselves consistent and tough, with their GPL Season 3 Tournament win. AHQ is probably going to have a hard time, because it looks like they are outmatched by Edward and Samsung Galaxy White. However, they are a proven team with a lot of experience under their belt.

Dark Passage is a question mark for a lot of analysts in the League of Legends scene, because Turkey is a region that is just beginning to make a name for themselves in th international community. Dark Passage has the advantage where few teams know about them, but many are writing them off immediantly because of this. For Dark Passage, it probably will be an uphill battle, but they have a chance of causing an upset and shocking the world.
