South Korea was the dominant force at the League of Legends World Championships from 2013 to 2017, winning five straight titles during that span. However, their death grip on the Summoner’s Cup appears to be loosening as evidenced by Invictus Gaming’s resounding victory in 2018 and FunPlus Phoenix’s 3-0 finals win in 2019, with both teams residing from China.
