Champions by Country


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. Can they pull it off again in 2019?
