Worlds 2021 Format

League of Legends Worlds 2021 will be played on Patch 11.19 with Akshan and Vex disabled.

Play-ins

Similar to last year, the play-ins will have 10 teams.

These 10 teams will be slotted into 2 groups, and it will be a single round-robin. With four slots up for grabs, the top team in each group will automatically qualify for the Groups stage. For the other 2 slots, the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th teams of each group will stand a chance to make it. The third and fourth-placed teams of each group will play a best of five against each other. The winner will face the other groups’ 2nd seed for a group stage spot.

With that, we will get the last 4 teams for the group stage at Worlds 2021.

Groups Stage and Knockouts Stage

The group stage will have the usual 16 teams with 12 qualified through their regional league results and the other four teams coming from play-ins. Since the VCS is unable to participate, Rogue has been promoted into the group stage to fill up the open slot. The teams that have qualified for the group stage are as follows:

These 12 teams along with four from the play-ins will be sorted into four groups. They will be playing a double round-robin to determine the top two teams of each group. Those top two teams will be sorted into a single-elimination knockout bracket.

Once the knockout bracket is sorted, those teams will play best of 5 series against their opponents with a win or go home setting. The two teams that emerge winners from those best of fives on either side of the bracket will face each other in the Worlds Finals on November 6th.


Worlds 2021 Prize Pool

Similar to the last year, Worlds 2021 is also going to have a prize pool of $2,225,000. The prize pool will be split between 22 teams. The champion team will get 22% and the bottom teams will get 1%.

Here’s the complete breakdown of the Worlds 2021 prize pool:

  • 1st place: $489,500 (22%)
  • 2nd place: $333,750 (15%)
  • 3rd to 4th: $178,000 (8%)
  • 5th to 8th: $100,125 (4.5%)
  • 9th to 12th: $55,625 (2.5%)
  • 13th to 16th: $50,063 (2.25%)
  • 17th to 18th: $38,938 (1.75%)
  • 19th to 20th: $27,813 (1.25%)
  • 21st to 22nd: $22,250 (1%)
  • VCS teams: TBD
