The general consensus amongst the League of Legends community is that the favorites to win the tournament are the South Koreans of CJ Entus Blaze or the home-favorites from OMG. It is also evident that a lot of new and somewhat unknown teams will be making an appearance in the tournament, which should provide some interesting games for the fans even from the first rounds of the tournament.
Finally, as in previous editions of the yearly tournament, a lot of complaints have been brought forward regarding the organization of the national qualifiers. In this year’s edition, disappointment was voiced by the Argentinean and Chilean League of Legends communities, both of whom considered that the organization of the qualifiers in their countries left a lot to be desired. It was even worst for teams like TicoGamers, from the Central American country of Costa Rica, who saw their opportunity to attend the event dissipate when, according to information posted by various users on the popular League of Legends subreddit, the organizers of the national qualifier decided that only the winner of the FIFA qualifier would make the trip to China.
