Two team groups are on the way to the event. Through regional and qualifying turnouts, 12 teams have already qualified for group stages. The 10 teams who have qualified for the event but have not received automatic access to the group stages will be required to participate in the plays.
Two groups are being divided into play-in teams. They’re going to put it into the best match in those groups. The top teams will take place at the Group phases in both groups. After second and third place teams compete against each other, a third team will also move on to group stages.

PEACE, Australia’s play-ins team, has recently changed its Worlds roster significantly. Jian-Jing, Yao “Apii,” wasn’t in a position to go to Iceland because he didn’t fulfil the criteria for eligibility.
PEACE had left no top laner and so the kiss “Vizicsacsi” Tamás was turned. Vizicsacsi was the former leading sporting institution laner and the most recent MAD Lions leader. He is replacing Apii for Worlds temporarily.
A fantastic substitute was managed by PEACE. Perhaps Vizicsacsi is not the League of Legends’ most flashy player, but he has fantastic leadership ability. This could be just what they needed for a new team like PEACE.
Although G2 Esports cannot head to the Worlds, they are ready for 2022 already. Sources claim that they plan to make the buyout at the end of the season for Martin “Wunder” Nordahl Hansen, Mihael “Mikyx” Mehle and Fabian “GrabbZ” Lohmann.
Wunder and Mikyx are respectively G2 Esports top laner and support, and GrabbZ is their coach. Nothing was confirmed when it was written, but after a disappointing 2021 season they would like to restructure their team.
This year’s event could be a step away from the grand plans announced by Riot before the Delta Variant spread but we are sure that at the League of Legends World Championships this year there will be some fantastic matches for us.
