The home town favourite T1 has won the League of Legends World Championship, further cementing the organisation as the best LoL team of all time.
T1 has won the League of Legends World Championship, beating Weibo Gaming 3-0 in the final to secure a fourth world title. With Worlds being held in South Korea, T1 were the hometown favourite in the Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul. To make it to the final T1 took fairly convincing wins over two Chinese teams in the bracket stage, in the shape of LNG Esports, who they took down 3-0 and JD Gaming who they beat 3-1. Many outside of Korea considered the Chinese teams the favourites to win the event, so for T1 to take down so many of them shows just how strong they were at Worlds. The win sees the T1 org lift its fourth Worlds trophy and its first since 2016. The opening ceremony saw the first live performance from Heartsteel, the boyband from the League of Legends universe, as well as a performance of the Worlds 2023 anthem from KPop group NewJeans. Worlds also hosted the reveal of Hwei, the new League of Legends champion who is a paint mage with 10 abilities.
