Did you do your Pick'Em for the finals on November 5, 2022? Well, you should, but one thing is to note, not a single perfect Pick'Em is left this year. That's how crazy this LoL World Championship has been.
The League of Legends World Championship semi-finals have come to an end. Before this weekend we had a total of eight perfect Pick'Ems left, but one team stood in the way of fans getting their ultimate skins and that team is called DRX.
Each and every player who had a perfect Pick'Em chose the same outcome of the 2022 League of Legends World Championship. Too bad their picks are wrong now, eh?
DRX Make Incredible Comeback and Shatter Pick'Em Hopes
On October 30, 2022 Gen.G, the LCK first seed faced off against DRX who reverse-swept EDG, the reigning League of Legends World Champions, in the quarter-finals to be there. Most fans and experts picked Gen.G to win.
Throughout the entire 2022 LCK season, DRX has not managed a single win against Gen.G. Gen.G also looked dominant throughout the year, especially summer, earning them the LCK Summer title as well.
Were our predictions right? Not really....
So it makes complete sense that most fans had pegged Gen.G to win the match and give us a third T1 vs. Gen.G final in 2022. All eight players with perfect Pick'Em to this point chose Gen.G over DRX to make it to San Francisco on November 5, 2022. Of course, almost 83% of players also chose Gen.G thanks to their incredible record throughout the year.

Those perfect Pick'Em were shattered though with DRX shaking off their nerve's in the first match and kicking it into high gear, earning Deft his first start at a League of Legends World Championship final, as well as BeryL his third finals' appearance in a row.
This means that no one will be getting all Ultimate Skins gifted from Riot. This League of Legends World Championship has been insane, with more champions than ever before played, as well as some surprising victories. This will also be the first time in League of Legends Worlds history that a team that competed in the Play-In stage is playing in the Finals. Who do you have for your Pick'Em in the finals?
