Wild Rift is gearing up for one of its busiest years in esports. Coming up pretty soon, there’s going to be the LoL Wild Rift Global Championship Icons 2022. We’ve just gotten the full details of this event. The tournament has had a few complications already, like moving around the location. With this new announcement though, we know there’s a prize pool and format for teams to really deliver on the highest tier of Wild Rift.
This is what’s been changed with the tournament and how it’s all going to run:
The Wild Rift Global Championship 2022 is an international event that brings together teams from the entire world. This tournament is going to feature 24 of the best teams, including each of the regional champions to find the top team in the mobile LoL game. The tournament is going to feature a $2,000,000 prize pool, definitely on the higher end for mobile esports. Things are going to kick off in June and run all the way through to July. With these teams in the competition and a big prize pool at stake, this is going to be one of the biggest events for mobile epsorts betting too.
The Wild Rift event was originally going to be taking place in Madrid, Spain. However, it has now been moved to try and smooth out potential passport problems. The tournament is now going to be held at the Suntec Convention and Exhibition Center in Singapore.
While the full event will take a month, the first stage (Play-Ins) will be held from June 14th to 18th. The 16 teams will compete against each other to figure out who will make it to the main event. Only 8 teams progress through and have a shot at the title and top prize.
The best teams from that phase will move into the Group Stage. While this will again be four groups of four teams, the last rounds’ winners are joining those that have already qualified. Here, the region champions will be mixed in with those who fought their way up through the play-ins. However, we’ll see these teams in the competition whittled down. This stage runs from June 21st to June 25th.
The next and final portion is going to be the Knockout Stage. In this section, teams are out of their groups and competing directly against one another. This round is going to take place from July 1st to 9th.
We’re going to find out more about the Wild Rift Global Championship 2022 is going to work as we get closer. While we’re only about a month off the game’s kicking off, there are a few key details that Riot is keeping close to their chest. Such as the full format of the tournament and how each stage is going to be run. However, we do have a decent view of how the tournament is going to be structured. More importantly, we know that the tournament is going to feature a huge prize pool to give the tournament stakes to match the teams attending.
