Edward Gaming Breaks The Curse

Edward Gaming used to be cursed. After winning the first-ever MSI in 2015, the team had made it to the Quarterfinal Stage at the League of Legends World Championship five times, but could never find their way out. The reputation of the team turned into that of a team that would dominate domestically but never would be able to punch their way through to the semifinals, let alone finals, at the World Championship.

Today that all changed. Plays come in from all places, such as the jungler from Edward Gaming, Jiejie, stealing the baron in game three twice in a row, to utter domination from the bottom lane from star Viper. The team looked different from the rosters that Edward Gaming had put forward before.
