Edward Gaming Crowned as LPL Summer Split 2021 Champions, Got Ticket to WORLDS 2021: In the LPL Summer Split of 2021, the champion’s name was announced. The league’s rooted team, Edward Gaming, reached the championship for the first time in a long time after defeating its opponent FunPlus Phoenix 3-1 in the grand final. Scout, a seasoned mid laner, was named the most valuable player of the finals for his outstanding performance in the first three games.
EDG, who won the championship in the summer of 2017 by defeating RNG 3-2 in the final, has left its fans yearning for success in subsequent years. By transferring Viper at the start of last season, Edward Gaming, who had been unable to compete in World Championship and MSI competitions for the previous two years, became one of the league’s most forceful teams. They were praised by all for their performance against FunPlus Phoenix, who dominated and defeated all of their opponents during the 2021 Summer Season.

The FPX team was considered as the number one favorite not only in the league but also in the World Championship before the Finals. Edward Gaming outperformed FPX in both the draughts and the early game, which is FPX’s strongest strength, throughout the four-game series, contrary to expectations.
As a result, the champion EDG will compete from the first bag in the 2021 World Championship, whereas FPX will compete from the second bag. The Regional Finals, which begin tomorrow, will determine the other two teams from the LPL region. Teams RNG, LNG, Rare Atom, and Team WE will compete for the final two seats.
