How to watch League of Legends Championships: What’s happened so far?
So, what has happened so far in the League of Legends world championships this year so far? Well the group stages kicked off in Paris at the beginning of October, whittling down the starting 16 teams down to 8 before heading to London’s Wembley arena for the quarter-finals last weekend.
We went along to the Championships in Wembley arena, and the atmosphere was absolutely electric – people cheered and clapped whenever a team member was killed, and the feeling was just like watching a football game when your team scored. Even as someone that doesn’t regularly play League of Legends, we really got into it and it was definitely because of the excitement of everybody else around us. Wembley was full to the brim with LoL fans not only from the UK, but all over the world. The excitement of the LoL championships speaks to a wide range of people, a range reflected by attendees of the event.
The quarter-finals at Wembley whittled the eight remaining teams down to the final four who went head to head in the semi-finals in Brussels last weekend, October 24-25: Origen vs SKT and Fnatic vs KOO Tigers. SKT, the number one team world in the moment beat Origen for their place in the finals and underdogs KOO Tigers beat European favourites Fnatic, which should make for an exciting final match this weekend in Berlin, Germany.
