History of League of Legends Worlds Championship
League of Legends Worlds is one of the most distinguished annual competition in the history of esports. Since its creation in 2011, it always managed to together the best teams from all regions of the globe. Each year, it always brings a few more spectators to the biggest stadiums in the world and to the live streams that broadcast the matches for people who couldn’t attend. This year, the final will take place in the prestigious hall of the AccorHotels Arena in Paris. A choice that makes France a mainstay of the international esport scene, after the successes in 2017 of the final LCS EU (AccorHotels Arena) or more recently the MSI 2018 (Zenith).
Whats about semifinals ?
Last Sunday, fans of League of Legends were able to witness a match that will be remembered. The G2 Esports Europeans advanced to the World Cup final by defeating SK Telecom T1’s three-time South Korea world champions (3-1).
The experienced South Korean SKT T1 team led by legend Faker, who was and still considered for a long time as the best player in the history of League of Legends could not hold against the European armada of G2 Esports who dominated the season in Europe. The two teams delivered a confrontation at the highest of expectations in front of nearly 10,000 people who gathered at the Palacio Vistalegre in Madrid and millions of viewers on the internet. 540.000 people were watching the Riot Games channel on twitch only and all at once. An audience peak of 3,985,786 viewers was seen in semifinal, combining Twitch and YouTube statistics and not counting streaming platforms and Chinese TV channels. It’s simply a new record, previously held by the Fortnite World Cup that attracted last July 2.3 million viewers simultaneously on Twitch and YouTube, again without counting the Chinese audience.
