Before the tournament started, the expected final was Royal Never Give Up going against T1. Both teams had strong performances domestically, with T1 not dropping a series prior to the tournament being the biggest talking point.

Both teams emerged from the Group Stage having not dropped a game and playing head and shoulder above their opponents. In the Rumble Stage, T1 did start to show cracks, dropping games in a surprising fashion to G2 Esports and Evil Geniuses.

Royal Never Give Up made fewer blunders, not dropping a game to North America or any of the minor regions at all.

Now they are both in the finals after sweeping their opponents in their respective series. Royal Never Give Up had to put up more of a fight with Evil Geniuses not rolling over and giving them a free series. T1, on the other hand, had a much easier series.

There was a clear difference between the skill levels of the representative from the LEC compared to the LCK.

Now both Royal Never Give Up and T1 is scheduled to face off against each other. One of the two losses that Royal Never Give Up faced was against T1. Can T1 win three games against the defending champions or will Royal Never Give Up win their second championship in a row?
