Worlds 2022 Knockout Stage: Schedule
This year was one of the best quarterfinal draws we’ve seen in League of Legends esports since teams from the same region were not matched up against each other early on in the bracket apart from the GEN.G vs DK match. Every single quarterfinal matchup is worth watching given the history that these teams share and feature so many historical storylines. One such story is the iconic rivalry between RNG and T1 and fans will be treated to this BO5 very soon.
