League of Legends Worlds 2022 Pick’ems Update: The Upsets and the Favorites

If your predictions for the 2022 League of Legends World Championship got ruined by the performance of the LCS and LEC, don’t worry—you’re not alone. Many fans found themselves in the same boat.

As of the end of this year’s group stage, only 23 people around the world have successfully predicted the winners of all the games at Worlds so far. These fans have accumulated a total of 84 points in their pick’ems and are on track to earn every Ultimate skin available in the game if they keep their prediction streak alive for the rest of the tournament.

On the other hand, 72 people have not guessed a single outcome correctly. These fans were likely hoping for the minor and Western regions to upset the LCK and LPL representatives, but to no avail. Out of the eight teams representing the LCK and LPL, seven are moving on to the quarterfinals, and both regions took hold of the top spot in their respective groups.

Last year, 48 players had perfect pick’ems heading into the quarterfinals, but this year included pick’ems for the play-in stage as well. In contrast, last year’s pick’ems didn’t include the play-in stage due to issues regarding Riot’s official stance.

All players participating in this year’s pick’ems, which are currently available for quarterfinals predictions, will receive Worlds Capsules with various cosmetics inside. At the end of the tournament, players will receive extra rewards based on the number of points they accumulated through correct guesses in pick’ems, including the Worlds 2022 Azir skin and a Kassadin emote.

The 2022 League of Legends World Championship will enter its quarterfinals stage in New York City this Thursday, Oct. 20, starting with a match between the LPL’s JDG and LEC’s Rogue. The tournament will then move to Atlanta, Georgia for the semifinals and San Francisco, California for the finals.
