It is a renowned international esports competition for the well known online multiplayer game. This competition is run by Riot Games, the company that created League of Legends and it represents the peak of international professional teams competitive play.
Let’s look at some key facts and the most recent results of both teams competing in the League of Legends Worlds 2023 before getting into the specifics of this thrilling matchup.
T1 is a serious contender at Worlds 2023 thanks to their strong and reliable squad. Despite their remarkable trip, they have yet to win the championship in 2023; they came in second in the World Championships last year and in both LCK splits this year.
Choi Zeus Woo-je, the top laner for T1, said in a recent interview that if they don’t win at Worlds 2023, it might be the end of their time playing together. The team’s jungler, Moon “Oner” Hyeon-joon, is hailed as the key to success if the League of Legends meta aligns with his advantages. This team has an abundance of players with mechanical aptitude, therefore effective synergy could lead them to championship success.
Team Liquid, on the other hand, has had a roller-coaster year, starting with placing eighth during the LCS Spring Split despite mediocre play. But they made a strong comeback in the Summer Split, finally winning third place and guaranteeing their seat at League of Legends Worlds in 2023.
Team Liquid’s jungler, Hong Pyosik Chang-hyeon, was instrumental in this qualifying after winning the Worlds with DRX in 2022. The team also benefits from the experience of Jo CoreJJ Yong-in, their support player, who was instrumental in helping Samsung Galaxy win the World Championship in 2017.
While T1 may be thought of as the favorite to defeat Team Liquid in the opening match of the Swiss Stage at Worlds 2023, shocks are always possible due to the nature of the best-of-one series. On paper, though, T1 should triumph easily if its key players perform as predicted.
It’s important to note that T1 and Team Liquid have a winning record against one another, with T1 taking both of their meetings in the Mid-Season Invitational 2019. T1 lost their most recent match 0-3 against Gen.G Esports in the League of Legends LCK 2023 Summer Grand Final, while Team Liquid was defeated 2-3 by NRG in the LCS Summer Lower Bracket Final, according to current results.
