Here is how you can watch MSI 2023

MSI 2023 is starting a couple of hours from now, as League of Legends is getting its first international tournament of the year. This time around, the format has massively changed since we last saw an MSI tournament. The addition of a double-elimination format will have huge benefits for all the players and teams.

There are a total of thirteen teams coming to MSI 2023, and a list of the teams coming to the tournament can be found here. We also did our power rankings for the teams as well. The tournament is set up to be a big one.

Riot has already announced that there will be special esports drops for watching games, as well as more to come soon. This is gearing up to be a good international tournament where we get a feel of how the regions match up with each other. Let’s talk about where you can watch these games.
