The Chinese team EDward Gaming (EDG) won the Summoner’s Cup in the 2021 League of Legends World Championship, defeated rival DWG KIA, and won the organization’s first victory in the World Championship. EDG won five games in the series 3 to 2, not even a game is just a close fight back and forth. The game attracted more than 4 million spectators outside of China, and once these figures are counted, it is likely that there will be millions of spectators.
EDG’s mid laner Scout won the MVP award in the World Finals Series.

EDG is at a disadvantage in this game, not only has never appeared in the world finals before, but also played against DWG KIA. DWG won last year’s World Championship, and this year’s victory will consolidate this team and become the second team in history to win the World Championship twice in a row. For Khan, one of DWG’s star players, the stakes are even higher, as he was conscripted to his hometown of South Korea for military service and will be forced to retire.
Although the game time is 2 am local time, fans of the Chinese League are particularly excited, and videos of street celebrations even flooded non-Chinese social media.
