MSI 2024 Play-In Stage Draw

The draw happened for 8 teams that were divided into four tiers. The top teams of the LCS, LEC, LPL, and LCK are already in the Main Event while the four other teams from those regions are going to be in the Play-In Stage. Here are the details of the Tiers of teams.

MSI Play-In Stage Tiers

Play-In Stage Tier 1:

Tier 1 consists of the 2nd seeds of the LPL and LCK.

  • Top Esports (LPL)
  • T1 (LCK)

Play-In Stage Tier 2:

Tier 2 consists of the 2nd seeds of the LEC and LCS.

  • Fnatic (LEC)
  • FlyQuests (LCS)

Play-In Stage Tier 3:

Tier 3 are the teams from the PCS and VCS.

  • PSG Talon
  • GAM Esports

Play-In Stage Tier 4:

Lastly, Tier 4 are the teams from LLA and CBLOL.

  • Estral Esports
  • CBLOL Team (Currently Unknown)

These eight teams will be sorted into two double elimination brackets where two teams will emerge victorious from each bracket (total of four teams). The four teams will join the top teams of the LPL, LCK, LEC, and LCS in the Bracket Stage. That said, here is the bracket stage draw results.

So, the result ended with T1 and Estral Esports are set to face each other while FlyQuest will face PSG Talon. The former is not as competitive while FLY vs PSG could be a good series. Looks like a fairly even bracket.

Play-In Stage Bracket B

TES is set to face the CBLOL team that qualifies (pAIN Gaming or LOUD) while Fnatic and GAM Esports will face each other. FNC vs GAM will be an interesting matchup but both have some unproven players on the roster at the international stage.

When Does MSI 2024 Start?

MSI 2024 will start for May 1, 2024 as Riot will roll out the schedule very soon.
