Busan was an incredible host to us during both Worlds 2014 and 2018, and we look forward to returning there to set the stage for the best League of Legends teams in the world to face off.”
When Does It Start and How to Watch?
The Mid Season Invitational 2022 starts on 10 May with the group stage. It will last until 15 May. All the teams will be split into two separate groups of four. There will be a single group having three teams.
The groups are uneven due to the current European situation. The CIS region couldn’t send a team to MSI because of the war unfolding in Ukraine.
After the group stage, there will be a rumble stage which takes place between 18 and 22 May. This will have the best two teams for each group put into a different round-robin competition. The best four teams will then move forward to a traditional bracket stage to finalize the tournament. The final part of the competition will take place between 27 and 29 May.
This is the first time since 2019 that the event will have a live audience. With the tournament’s stages being located at Busan’s Exhibition and Convention Center, you can attend the event if you are in South Korea.
But if you aren’t or you cannot make it there, you can watch the competition online, as it will most likely be streamed on various platforms such as YouTube and Twitch like most LoL eSports tournaments.
The MSI is one of the LOL tournaments that you just cannot miss. If you want to see what the conclusion of the event is, who the players will choose from the LOL all champions and who the best teams are going to be, make sure to watch it. You are bound to have the greatest time ever.
