Worlds 2021 Champions: Edward Gaming is the League of Legends World Championship 2021 winner. What a Grand Finals it has been for the League of Legends World Championship 2021! Both Damwon KIA and Edward Gaming gave their best performances and the series went to the 5th match to determine which team will lift the Summoner’s Cup this year. But it was Edward Gaming from the LPL region, who after qualifying past the Quarter-Finals for the first time in history, has now defeated Damwon KIA, the last year’s Worlds Champions, by 3-2.

1st Match

Damwon KIA went for a poke-heavy champion lineup with Khan picking Yasuo, Canyon taking Xin Zhao, ShowMaker on LeBlanc, Ghost taking Ziggs, and BeryL taking Rakan. Edward Gaming went with their comfort picks having Flandre take Graves, JieJie with Jarvan IV, Scout with Ryze, Viper with Jhin, and Meiko on his Zilean. Both teams played strategically and punished their rivals whenever they made mistakes.

An aggressive Baron push by Damwon in the 30th minute resulted in a disaster as EDG aced them without losing any champions. This helped them to take the Baron and also the Ocean Soul Dragon. This advantage allowed EDG to end the game at the 35th minute with a 16-4 kill score.

EDG also went with Irelia on Flandre, Xin Zhao on JieJie, LeBlanc on Scout, Kai’sa on Viper, and Rakan on Meiko. ShowMaker’s Malzahar proved to be crucial as he was able to lock on EDG champions and helped his teammates to eliminate them before even the team fight started. The lead just increased as the game progressed as Damwon was successful in taking objectives and picking off EDG members. The game ended at 32 minutes with a 22-3 kill score after Damwon aced EDG in the bottom lane.
