League of Legends World Championship: Day Eight

The final day of qualifying

Top Seed: Fnatic


Today: Three wins

After a lack luster first week Fnatic showed why they are the best team in Europe. Storming to the top of their group with a fantastic week of wins, the team have managed to qualify. However, there will be no more second chances for Fnatic with games now being longer and harder than ever. It’s time for Fnatic to step up and prove they are the best team in Europe, and the world.


Second Seed: AHQ


Today: Two wins, one loss (and won play-off)

AHQ managed to qualify, but it was only just and they’ll need to up their game to have a hope of survival. Needing to run the gauntlet of a tie breaker should show some signs of weakness and inconsistency, which will need to be ironed out if AHQ are in with a chance of surviving London. It is a tall order but they are still in with a chance.


Third (DNQ): Cloud 9


Today: Three losses (and play-off)

Cloud 9 built up so many hopes and then dashed them on the rocks, leaving NA without a single team going into the knock out stages. Coming into the week with no losses they managed to be defeated by all their opposition, including a tie breaker loss to AHQ. The hope of the west now rests with the two European qualifiers, and while Cloud 9 will go home disappointed they can take some solace in the fact that they out performed all expectation, but sadly they fell short in the end.


Fourth (DNQ): Invictus Gaming


Today: One win, two losses

While Invictus weren’t able to qualify, they were able to play spoiler for Cloud 9, dashing their dreams of an uncontested second seed. Past that it’s been a very quiet tournament for IG, who will be hoping to forget about it and move on with the regular season.

Hey there guys! I’m Phil and I’m a 19 year old from the lovely UK. I’ve always loved video games and can remember the first time I played Age of Empires on my mum’s laptop. This passion for gaming grew as I grew and went into overdrive when I found myself with money I could spend and my own computer and consoles. While you’ll mostly find me on the PC, either being shouted at in online games or shouting at the screen on Steam, I also have a soft spot for my Xbox One. My favorite games of all time include Crusaders Kings 2 and Thomas Was Alone.When you can find me away from gaming it was almost certainly not by choice. I’m currently still a student International Relations and Political Science. While away from keyboard I also enjoy playing football (or soccer if you prefer) and recording a podcast with some of my friends who should know better.I love keeping up to date with all the latest gaming news and I hope I can help you to do the same.I’ll see you out there!

Have your say!
